Bhubaneswar: The local Met office today said the intense cold wave in Odisha is expected from November last week.

Talking to OTV, Director, Meteorological Centre, Bhubaneswar, Dr Sarat Chandra Sahu said there is less possibility of temperature going down further till next week.

“A low pressure area was expected to be formed over southeast of Sri Lanka coast. But there is no symptom of formation of low pressure in the said area till date. The low pressure area might be formed over southwest of Sri Lanka. There is no clear-cut indication on formation of the low pressure. Though there is a cloud mass off the Sri Lanka coast, the wind speed would be less and the wind flow would be variable. Considering the above, there would be slight change in the night temperature in Odisha by one Degree plus or minus,” Sahu said.
