A fresh low-pressure area is has developed over Northwest Bay of Bengal off North Odisha and West Bengal coast. According to Skymet Weather, weather conditions are favorable for the system to get more marked.
It is likely to induce a well-marked low-pressure area in the next 24 hours and possibly into a depression thereafter.
As per weathermen, the system is likely to stay in the proximity of the coast for the next 24 hours and thereafter, move inland and cross the coast in the next 48 hours. Most likely, the system would move along the Monsoon trough which at present is running through Indo-Gangetic plains.
The area of the influence will be eastern and central parts of the country. Particularly, places like Odisha, West Bengal, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Vidarbha, and Telangana would see heavy to very heavy rains till tomorrow.
In fact, peripheral of the system would also affect parts of Bihar, Coastal Andhra Pradesh and parts of Uttar Pradesh would also see moderate showers with isolated heavy spells.
Not only this, under influence of this system, Monsoon easterlies from the Bay of Bengal will reach all along the northwestern plains giving rains over Delhi-NCR, Punjab, and Haryana.
Odisha and adjoining coastal Andhra Pradesh have already recorded heavy to heavy rains. In a span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Monday, Sambalpur recorded 86 mm of rain, Bhawanipatna 84 mm, Titlagarh 73 mm, Bhubaneswar 43 mm, Visakhapatnam 39 mm, Tuni 36 mm, and Bapatla 36 mm.
However, rains would now reduce over Northeast India as wind pattern would now change and most of the humid winds would now concentrate over the low-pressure area.
This will not be all as the system would be closely followed by another one in quick succession. According to Skymet Weather, the system would now start making an appearance after three days and likely to follow the same track.
Thus, we can say that both the systems will keep the Monsoon active over most parts of East and Central India for the next one week.
