Cyclonic Circulation Forms Over Bay Of Bengal; Low Pressure Likely In 24 Hours

Bhubaneswar: A cyclonic circulation has formed over eastcentral and adjoining southeast Bay of Bengal, the regional centre of India Meteorological Department (IMD) informed on Wednesday.

According to the weather office, the system extends up to 5.8 km above mean sea level. Under its influence, a low pressure area is likely to form over westcentral Bay of Bengal during next 24 hours.

The formation of the low pressure area may trigger heavy rain across Odisha on September 8 and 9.

According to SOA’s Centre for Environment and Climate (CEC) director S C Sahu, the low pressure area is likely to form along the west-central Bay of Bengal off south Odisha-north Andhra Pradesh coast.

Under its influence, moderate rain is likely to occur at many places in south Odisha with heavy to very heavy rainfall at one or two places in those districts on September 8-10. “The system may then move northward and trigger moderate rain at many places in north Odisha with heavy rainfall at one or two locations from September 11 to 13,” he said.

Sahu, however, ruled out further intensification of the system.
