There is likelihood of formation of cyclonic circulation/ low pressure area over westcentral and adjoining northwest Bay of Bengal during week 1 (September 2 to 8) and week 2 (September 9 to 15), the IMD said in its North Indian Ocean Extended Range Outlook for Cyclogenesis.
However, considering the model guidance and environmental features, it is inferred that no cyclogenesis (formation of depression) is likely over the North Indian Ocean during the period, the outlook added.
