As per Skymet Weather, the reason for this rain revival over the coastal parts of Odisha can be attributed to the well-marked low-pressure area that is presently seen over West Central Bay of Bengal and adjoining North Andhra Pradesh coast. Moreover, a trough is also extending from this system up to North Tamil Nadu coast.
