Fresh low pressure in Bay to keep Monsoon rains going

Updated on July 22, 2018: The well marked low had become a depression after a long time. In fact, the last time a depression formed in Bay was during the time of onset of Monsoon over the country. This present depression which is over West Bengal is likely to weaken into a well marked low pressure area and move westwards towards East Madhya Pradesh and adjoining areas.

Thus, rainfall is expected over East Madhya Pradesh, North Madhya Maharashtra, Vidarbha, Chhattisgarh and East Uttar Pradesh during the next 24 hours.

Updated on July 20, 2018: The low pressure area over Northwest Bay of Bengal has become a well marked low pressure area and is now lying over Northwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining West Bengal and Odisha. The weather system is expected to become a depression during the next 24 hours over the same region.

After the onset of Monsoon wherein a depression was seen, a depression is expected to form after almost two months. This system is expected to give heavy rains over Odisha, Chhattisgarh, North Telangana. Thereafter, rains will also be seen over West Bengal, Jharkhand, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and thereafter moving towards Rajasthan region.

Flooding rains may occur over parts of Odisha, Chhattisgarh, North Telangana during the next 24 to 48 hours.

Published on July 19, 2018: A weather system had formed in the Bay of Bengal. It had further intensified into a well marked low after moving towards the central parts of the country and finally reaching Gujarat causing hefty showers over these parts. Now, another system waits right on the heels of the old system.

A fresh low pressure area has formed over Northwest Bay of Bengal supported by a cyclonic circulation which is extending up to the mid levels.

The low pressure area has been preceded by a cyclonic circulation which was persisting over the Northwest Bay of Bengal.


During the next 24 hours, the system is expected to stay over the Bay of Bengal and get organised further. In fact, the system is also expected to become a well marked low pressure area and move inland in another 48 hours.

Hence, unlike the last one, this system will take a northerly track due to which rains are likely over the rain deficient states of Jharkhand, West Bengal, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh after two days.

Thereafter, the system is expected to move across Madhya Pradesh and adjoining South Uttar Pradesh right up to Rajasthan bringing more rains over these areas. However, the system is expected to spare Maharashtra this time.
