Low Pressure in the Bay of Bengal

The Well-Marked Low-Pressure Area over west-central Bay of Bengal and neighbourhood now lies over the west-central Bay of Bengal off Andhra Pradesh coast. The associated cyclonic circulation extends up to mid-tropospheric level tilting southwestwards with height. It is very likely to move north northwestwards towards north Andhra Pradesh coast and South Odisha. A Trough is extending from this system along the coast up to central parts of West Bengal touching Jharkhand.

The system has earlier given widespread rains over Tamil Nadu, Coastal Andhra Pradesh and now this rain activity that is the rain belt will shift towards the coastal stations of Andhra Pradesh and even reach up to the southern parts of Odisha. Thunderstorm accompanied by lightning is very likely over parts of peninsular, and east India during the next two days.

In the past 24 hours as well significant rain of 119.7 mm was recorded in Kalingapatnam while Machilipatnam saw 49.2 mm of rainfall activities. While Vijayawada recorded 31.7 mm of rain.

Durg, Bilaspur, Ambikapur, Raipur, Pendra, Jamshedpur, Ranchi, Bokaro, Midnapore, Bankura, and Malda, all these places are very likely to witness moderate to heavy showers over a period of next two days. Whereas, Bhubaneswar, Puri, Cuttack, Gopalpur all are likely to see very good rains during the same time.

As per our experts, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand will be more vulnerable to rains, gusty winds and lightning strikes. Lightning strikes and strong gusty winds are the main characteristics during the post Monsoon season. By a virtue of a change in the air mass, these activities are more intense in nature.

It is very likely that this system will even give rains over the northeastern states of our country. The northern parts of Chhattisgarh and adjoining Jharkhand will see heavy to very heavy rains over a period of the next two days.
