In its North Indian Ocean Extended Range Outlook for Cyclogenesis, the IMD 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.
