Low pressure likely to trigger heavy rain in Odisha
Bhubaneshwar: A low pressure over the Bay of Bengal is likely to trigger very heavy rainfall coupled with strong gusty surface wind in some parts of Odisha, besides making sea condition very rough.
Yesterday’s Low Pressure area now lies over the northwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining areas of Gangetic West Bengal and Southwest Bangladesh, the meteorological centre here said.
Under its impact, rain or thundershower is likely to occur in most places in Odisha during the next 24 hours.
The system is also likely to trigger heavy rainfall in a few places with heavy to very heavy rainfall at one or two places over north Odisha and heavy rainfall at one or two places over south Odisha in the next 24 hours, it said.
Strong gusty surface wind with speed reaching 45-55 kmph and gusting up to 65 kmph would prevail along and off Odisha Coast.
Sea condition would be rough to very rough, the MeT office said, advising the fishermen not to venture into the sea.
