Bhubaneswar: Rain and thunder shower coupled with gusty surface wind is likely to lash some places of Odisha by Tuesday under the impact of a well marked low pressure area over southwest Bay of Bengal.

The well marked low pressure area moved slightly northwestwards and now lies over Sri Lanka and adjoining Gulf of Mannar and southwest Bay of Bengal, the MeT centre here said.

Associated upper air cyclonic circulation extends upto 3.6 km above mean sea level and the system is likely to move north-northwestwards and concentrate into a depression during next 48 hours.

Under its influence, rain/thundershower would occur at one or two places over the state during next 24 hours, it said.

Gusty surface wind from southwesterly direction with 45 to 50 kmph speed and gusting to 55 kmph would prevail along and off Odisha Coast.

Fishermen are advised not to venture into sea, the MeT office added.
