Heavy Rain May Resume In Odisha From Today, 8 Districts On Yellow Alert

Bhubaneswar: A fresh spell of rain is likely to bring relief to people from the week-long hot and humid weather, caused by the monsoon’s weakening trend, the regional centre of the India Meteorological Department informed on Monday.

According to the weather reports, the rainfall activity is likely to intensify from September 5 with heavy rainfall and thunderstorm forecast for the next 24 hours.

Added to it, a yellow warning has been issued for the possibility of heavy rain at one or two places in some districts of the state for the next 4 to 5 days.

The MeT office had issued a warning for heavy rainfall in Keonjhar, Mayurbhanj, Kandhamal, Rayagada, Ganjam, Gajapati, Koraput, and Malkangiri till 8.30 am of September 6.

Yellow alert for thunderstorm with lightning has also been sounded for Angul, Dhenkanal, Mayurbhanj, Keonjhar, Jajpur, Cuttack, Khurda, Puri, Jagatsinghpur, Bhadrak, Kendrapara Nayagarh, Boudh, Kandhamal, Kalahandi, Sonepur, Nabarangpur, Malkangiri, Koraput, Ganjam, Gajapati, Rayagada and Balasore during this period, when several districts will also experience light to moderate rain or thundershower.

the IMD in its North Indian Ocean Extended Range Outlook for Cyclogenesis said earlier that there is a likelihood of formation of cyclonic circulation/low-pressure area over westcentral and adjoining northwest Bay of Bengal during week 1 (September 2 to 8) and week 2 (September 9 to 15).

According to SOA’s Centre for Environment and Climate (CEC) director S C Sahu, low pressure is likely to form along the west-central Bay of South Odisha-North Andhra Pradesh coast on September 9.

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 from 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.
