Odisha is likely to witness more rainfall activities in the current month of September, as a fresh cyclonic circulation is likely to brew over the Bay of Bengal around September 17-18, predicted India Meteorological Department DG Mrutyunjay Mohapatra on Saturday.

As per the September forecast, low pressure systems might bring good rainfall in Odisha every week throughout the month and that is what has happened so far, said Mohapatra.

The weather agency will give more details on the intensity, likely area of formation of the cyclonic circulation in coming days, said the IMD chief.

Speaking on the present weather situation in Odisha, Mohapatra said, “The Well-marked low pressure area over the Westcentral and adjoining Northwest Bay of Bengal is likely to intensify into a depression by September 11 morning.”

The system is likely to touch the coast between north Andhra and south Odisha. Under its influence, Odisha is likely to experience heavy to very heavy rainfall with one or two places likely to see rain to the extent of 20 cm on September 10 and 11, the IMD DG said.

The rainfall activities will become less from September 12 when a few places in interior Odisha and districts adjoining Chhattisgarh may see rainfall, said Mohapatra.

Squally weather with surface wind speed reaching up to 45 to 55 kmph gusting to 65 kmph is very likely over sea along and off Odisha coast and North-West adjoining West-Central Bay of Bengal till September 12, 2022, a bulletin issued by IMD read.
