New Delhi, Jun 8 : The National Weather Forecasting Centre of Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) on Monday said that a low pressure area is likely to form over east-central Bay of Bengal during next 48 hours and most likely to move west-northwest wards and become more marked during subsequent 24 hours.
Under the influence of this Low Pressure Area and convergence of lower level Westerlies along the West Coast, fairly widespread to widespread rainfall accompanied with isolated heavy to very heavy rainfall is likely over Odisha, north Coastal Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Coastal Karnataka, north Konkan and Kerala & Mahe during June 10 to June 12. Isolated heavy falls over north Madhya Maharashtra, Marathwada, Vidarbha, Chhattisgarh and south Madhya Pradesh during June 11 -12, the IMD added.
This low pressure area is most likely to become more marked in the next 24 hours and if it turns into ‘Deep Depression’, this can result into a cyclone, the officials said, adding that in this case it will be known as cyclone 'Gati'. However, not all low pressure areas intensify into cyclones but this low pressure cyclonic circulation will help in advancement of Monsoon and to bring good rainfall during the ongoing week and further too.
