VIJAYAWADA: South Odisha and coastal Andhra Pradesh are likely to witness heavy rainfall as a low pressure is likely to form over west central Bay of Bengal on September 7 and it would intensify into a depression, private website Skymet reported on Tuesday.

It said a cyclonic circulation is marked over East-Central Bay of Bengal, extending up to mid-tropospheric level, and this could become more marked and shift to central parts of Bay of Bengal in the next 24 hours.

Under its influence, a low pressure area is likely to form over West Central Bay of Bengal in the subsequent 24 hours. Due to favorable environmental conditions, the weather system will have the potential to strengthen itself into a depression over the same area before crossing the coastline.

The system is expected to cross the north Andhra coast on September 9, according to an IMD report.

Between September 8 and September 11, the depression is likely to move westward, traversing across South Odisha, coastal Andhra Pradesh, South Chattisgarh, Vidarbha and Marathwada.

The depression will power the monsoon stream afresh and revive the weather activity from East Coast to West Coast and take to further inland to the plains of north India. Heavy to very heavy rains accompanied by lightning, thunderstorms, gale winds are likely in a staggered manner along the track of the system, the website said.
