Low pressure over the Bay of Bengal developed which is likely to trigger to heavy rainfall

Bhubaneswar:19/9/17; A low pressure over the Bay of Bengal developed today which is likely to trigger heavy to very heavy rainfall coupled with gusty surface wind in the next 24 hours, the Met department said today.

Under the influence of upper air cyclonic circulation, a low pressure area has formed over the northwest Bay of Bengal and its neighbourhood, the weatherman said.

Under its impact, rain and thundershower are likely to occur in most areas in Odisha. Similarly, heavy to very heavy rainfall is likely to take place in some areas with extremely heavy rainfall at one or two places in northern districts, while heavy rainfall may occur at one or two places in south Odisha in the next 24 hours.

Strong gusty surface wind from northwesterly direction with speed reaching 45-50 kmph and gusting up to 60 kmph may prevail in south coastal Odisha, it said.

Gusty wind is also likely to prevail from easterly direction at 35-45 kmph speed and going up to 55 kmph in the north coastal areas.

The sea would be rough to very rough in south coastal Odisha and moderate to rough in the north coast, the Met office said, advising fishermen not to venture into the sea in south Odis
