Fresh low pressure forms over BoB; models indicate intensification of system into cyclone

Bhubaneswar: Under influence of the cyclonic circulation over Bay of Bengal, a fresh low pressure formed over south Andaman Sea and adjoining Thailand coast, informed IMD in a bulletin.

Most of the models are indicating that the low pressure area over Andaman Sea would move west-northwestwards, concentrate into a depression over north Andaman Sea around November 15 and reach Andhra Pradesh coast around November 18.

However, there is large variation among various models w.r.t intensification of system. IMD GFS & NCUM are indicating intensification of system into cyclonic storm and ECMWF & NCEP GFS are indicating intensification upto depression stage.

In view of above system, the IMD advised the farmers to drain out excess water from their rice field at milky grain to harvesting stage as it may lead to lodging. They should watch for disease &pest infestation like false smut, neck blast, Gundhi bug, BPH in rice & leaf spot, blight & damping off.
