Squall@65Kmph Due To LOPRA In 48 Hrs; No Heavy Rainfall Alert For Odisha Till Oct 22
Bhubaneswar: Squally weather with surface wind speed reaching 45-55 kmph gusting to 65 kmph is likely over westcentral and adjoining northwest Bay of Bengal under influence of the anticipated low pressure, which may form over the southeast and adjoining east-central Bay of Bengal around October 22.
“The cyclonic circulation over south Andaman Sea and neighbourhood now lies over north Andaman Sea and its neighbourhood. Under its influence, a low-pressure area is likely to form over southeast and adjoining eastcentral Bay of Bengal during the next 48 hours. It is likely to move west-northwestwards and concentrate into a depression by October 22 morning over central Bay of Bengal. It is very likely to intensify further into a cyclonic storm over westcentral Bay of Bengal subsequently,” Regional Meteorological Centre said in its midday bulletin.
However, there is no possibility of heavy rain in Odisha till October 23 morning.
