Bhubaneswar: Another low pressure system is developing the Bay of Bengal which is likely to hit the east coast of India on December 2. The system is likely to hit Tamil Nadu and Puducherry coasts and is not expected to impact Odisha as it would move westward, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) informed
A cyclonic circulation lies over East Equatorial Indian Ocean & adjoining south Andaman Sea and extends upto 5.8 km above mean sea level. Under its influence, a low pressure Area is very likely to form over Southeast Bay of Bengal during next 48 hours, said HR Biswas, Director, IMD Bhubaneswar.
“It is likely to concentrate into a Depression during subsequent 24 hours and likely to intensify further thereafter. It is likely to move nearly westwards and reach Tamil Nadu – Puducherry coasts on 2nd December,” said Biswas.
On the other hand, cyclonic storm ‘Nivar’ over north coastal Tamil Nadu weakened into a deep depression on Thursday evening. It further weakened into a well marked low pressure area over south coastal Andhra Pradesh and adjoining west central Bay of Bengal today morning.
Biswas said that dry weather is most likely to prevail over Odisha. Shallow to moderate fog is expected to occur at one or two places over the districts of south interior Odisha. “The minimum temperature is very likely to fall gradually by 3 to 4 degrees at many places over the districts of Odisha during next 2 to 3 days,” he added.
