A Cyclonic Circulation which was persisting over Equatorial Indian Ocean and adjoining Southeast Arabian Sea. Due to its influence, a Low Pressure Area formed over the same region. Now, this Low Pressure Area has intensified into a Well Marked Low Pressure Area and it is prevalent over Southeast and adjoining Southwest Arabian Sea.
The system is expected to move in West-northwest direction and turn into a Depression during the next 24 hours. As the system is moving in favourable sea conditions, sea surface temperatures are still high around 28 to 29 degree Celsius. Therefore, we expect it to further intensify into a Deep Depression, but it will continue to move in West- northwest direction away from the Indian coast.
The threat to Indian mainland is negligible due to this weather system, but it’s affect can be felt in terms of reduced rain activities over South Peninsula. Whenever any weather system develops over either the Arabian Sea or Bay of Bengal, the moisture concentration will be around that system. This hinders the rain activities over rest parts of the country particularly over South Peninsula. The rain activities will remain subdued over South Peninsula for at least next one week or so.
Meanwhile, surface winds will be very high in the range of 40-50 kmph gusting to 60 kmph over South Tamil Nadu and South Kerala coast for at least the next 48 hours.
