Low Pressure To Bring November Rain In Odisha
According to India Meteorological Department (IMD), a low-pressure area has formed over the north Andaman Sea which is expected to intensify and move west-north-westwards later this week. It is also being reported that the system is likely to concentrate into a depression over east-central Bay of Bengal in the next couple of days and move north-westwards.
“Light to moderate rainfall or thundershower activity is expected to occur at isolated places in coastal Odisha on November 8,” said Director, Bhubaneswar Meteorological Centre, HR Biswas. Rainfall activity will increase from November 9 and heavy rainfall is likely to occur at isolated places in coastal Odisha during the period, he added.
Meanwhile, private weather forecaster Skymet said “the tropical storm, which is expected to form in the Bay of Bengal, will be named Bulbul. A low-pressure area has developed over the north Andaman Sea. It is expected to move in west-north-westwards and intensify into a depression over east-central Bay of Bengal around November 5 or 6.”
Skymet also added that they expect this system to eventually head towards north Andhra Pradesh and Odisha coast. “While October cyclones head towards West Bengal and Bangladesh, November cyclones mostly strike Andhra Pradesh and Odisha. Specifically, north Andhra Pradesh and south Odisha coasts are more prone to cyclones.”
