Another Low-Pressure Area To Form Over Bay Of Bengal Around Aug 13-14?
Bhubaneswar: Two back-to-back low-pressure areas are likely to form over the Bay of Bengal this month.
Besides the low-pressure area likely to form over northwest and adjoining west-central Bay of Bengal around August 7, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has said another low-pressure area was also likely to form over Bay of Bengal around August 13-14.
“Another low-pressure area is likely to form over north Bay of Bengal around 13th/14th August. It is likely to intensify into a depression over north Bay of Bengal,” the IMD said in its North Indian Ocean Extended Range Outlook for Cyclogenesis.
According to the IMD’s regional centre in Bhubaneswar, the low-pressure area that is likely to form around August 7 has a “low” probability of intensifying into a depression.
“Under the influence of gradual strengthening of monsoon flow and the anticipated low-pressure area, rainfall activity is very likely to increase gradually from August 5. Widespread rainfall with isolated heavy to very heavy rainfall is likely between August 6 and August 10 in Odisha,” it said.
