The India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Monday said that a low pressure area has formed over northwest and adjoining west-central Bay of Bengal off south Odisha and north Andhra Pradesh coasts.
The low pressure system has developed under the influence of a cyclonic circulation and is likely to move west-northwest wards during the next two to three days.
The system is likely to trigger heavy to very heavy rainfall in several parts of Odisha in the next 48 hours.
“Under the influence of west-northwestward movement of the Low Pressure area or its remnant cyclonic circulation, fairly widespread to widespread rainfall with isolated heavy to very heavy falls very likely over south Odisha, coastal Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Vidarbha and south Chhattisgarh between September 5 and September 7, 2021,” the IMD said in a release.
