Fresh low pressure likely; heavy to very heavy rain may lash Odisha from Aug 15

Bhubaneswar: The India Meteorological Department (IMD) today informed that a cyclonic circulation is likely to form over westcentral and adjoining northwest Bay of Bengal around August 15 and may lead to formation of a low pressure area over the same region during subsequent 48 hours.

Under the influence of the system, fairly widespread rainfall activity is likely over Odisha, coastal Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Vidarbha and Chhattisgarh.

“Isolated heavy to very heavy falls are likely over Odisha between August 15 and 17 and isolated heavy falls over coastal Andhra Pradesh during the period. Besides, subdued rainfall is very likely to occur in rest parts of the country,” said the weathermen.

The IMD also informed that a cyclonic circulation lies over west Bihar and neighbourhood at lower tropospheric levels. It is likely to persist during next 48 hours and become less marked thereafter. Strong lower level southwesterly winds from the Bay of Bengal to northeast India is likely to continue during the next four days.
