Another low pressure to emerge in Bay of Bengal

November 18, 2013 2:52 PM |

Due to the rapid appearance of low pressure systems in the Bay of Bengal, good amount of rain has occurred in south India for the last couple of days. And the current forecast shows that this trend of emergence of newer systems and good rain will continue for the entire month of November- with occasional spells of dry weather in between.

Currently, the low pressure system which gave heavy rain over Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh in the last 48 to 72 hours has weakened and moved westwards towards Lakshadweep Island. It will now give good rain over the area.

“Tamil Nadu and south Andhra Pradesh witnessed heavy rain in the last 24 hours but as of now the system has weakened due to which rainfall figures will come down significantly. Rain will be isolated over entire peninsular India for the next 48 hours. Thereafter a new system will form bringing rainy weather along with it”, says a senior meteorologist at

Chennai and Nagapattinam in Tamil Nadu recorded 43 mm and 18 mm of rain respectively. Tirupati and Nellore in Andhra recorded 51 mm and 65 mm of rain while Kozhikode in Kerala and Chirtadurga in south interior Karnataka recorded 2.2 mm and 1 mm of rain respectively on Sunday.

“Latest satellite image shows a new system- a low level circulation lying in central Bay of Bengal- which is expected to move West-Northwestward towards Andhra Pradesh and Orissa from Thursday onwards. This will therefore give good rain over the states. Further, our weather models show that yet another system will form in the Bay of Bengal on the weekend”, added the senior meteorologist.

Every year, the period from October to December witnesses the formation of a number of systems in the Bay of Bengal, which bring heavy to very heavy rain and gusty winds with it. Out of these systems, one or two convert into a cyclonic storm.
