Bhubaneswar: Though there is a possibility of rainfall in some parts of coastal Odisha under the influence of a low pressure formed over southeast Bay of Bengal, the Met department is yet to confirm about its effect on Odisha.
The low pressure which was formed over south Andaman Sea and its nearby southeast Bay of Bengal yesterday is expected to turn into a depression in the next 24 hours, a release by the local Met office here said today.
On the other hand, after a week of fluctuating temperature, most parts of Odisha have again come under the grip of cold wave.

As informed by Dr Sarat Chandra Sahu, Director, Meteorological Centre, Bhubaneswar, there was a rise in the day and night temperature in most parts of Odisha in the last week under the influence of a low pressure formed over Bay of Bengal off the Tamil Nadu coast.
