Visakhapatnam: A low pressure area has formed over the northwest Bay of Bengal off the West Bengal-Odisha coasts, under the influence of the cyclonic circulation over Northwest and adjoining Central Bay of Bengal.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) Amaravati said on Tuesday that the associated cyclonic circulation extended up to 7.6 km above mean sea level, tilting southwestwards with height. It is likely to move west-northwestwards across North Odisha and South Jharkhand during the next two days.

The monsoon trough at mean sea level now passes through Jaisalmer, Kota, Guna, Siddhi, Ranchi and the center of the low pressure area over northwest Bay of Bengal off West Bengal-Odisha coasts, and then southeastwards to East Central Bay of Bengal. Lower tropospheric north-westerly winds are prevailing over Andhra Pradesh and Yanam.

The system will trigger fairly widespread rain and thundershower activity over Odisha, West Bengal, and North Coastal Andhra Pradesh till September 23. Heavy rains will lash North Coastal Andhra Pradesh and Yanam, and on the rest of the days, thundershowers might bring good rains to the above two regions.
