Low Pressure Forming Over Bay Of Bengal; More Rain In Odisha Likely Next Week

Bhubaneswar: Even as rain continued in parts of Odisha due to a trough line stretching along the eastern coast, a low pressure area is taking shape over the Bay of Bengal which could lead to more rain next week.

According to SOA’s Centre for Environment and Climate (CEC) here, the trough line was continuing from Tamil Nadu coast upto West Bengal and it was gradually shifting to interior Odisha which would cause a decrease in rainfall from Sunday with isolated rains in southern districts.

The regional centre of India Meteorological Department (IMD), here said the trough extending upto 0.9 km above mean sea level persists.

However, a low pressure took shape over Thailand and adjoining south Bay of Bengal on Saturday and is likely to develop into a depression over east central Bay of
Bengal on November 15.

It is likely to move in a west-north-west as also north-west direction and further intensify into a deep depression before crossing central Andhra Pradesh coast in the afternoon or night of November 18.

Under the influence of this system, rainfall may increase in Odisha from November 17 and continue up to November 20 with one or two places in south Odisha experiencing heavy rainfall.
