The impact of Cyclone MICHAUNG was visible over eastern parts of the country in terms of widespread rainfall. After making landfall over coastal Andhra Pradesh, the cyclone weakened into a depression and subsequently in a low-pressure area over Chhattisgarh and adjoining areas. We have seen good rain over many parts of Bihar Jharkhand, West Bengal, Odisha, east Uttar Pradesh, east Madhya Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh.
The low-pressure area has become less marked. A cyclonic circulation is over eastern parts of Bangladesh and adjoining areas. Rain activities will reduce significantly from the eastern parts of the country but may continue over Northeast India for another 24 to 48 hours. These rain activities over Northeast India will be of light intensity.
We do not expect another spell of rain over East and Northeast India for the next 8 to 10 days. The weather will go completely dry. There are chances of shallow to moderate fog over East India from December 9. Minimum temperatures may also drop marginally over Eastern parts of the country during the next two to three days.
