VIJAYAWADA:   South coastal Andhra, Chittoor and Kadapa districts of Rayalaseema and several other parts of the State are likely to receive heavy to very heavy rains on Thursday due to a persisting low-pressure area over the Bay of Bengal, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) predicted on Wednesday. 

The low-pressure area formed over southeast and adjoining southwest Bay of Bengal on Tuesday is likely to move nearly westwards and reach westcentral and adjoining southwest Bay of Bengal off south Andhra Pradesh-north Tamil Nadu coasts by Thursday.

The north coastal Andhra districts, Srikakulam, Vizianagaram, Visakhapatnam and also the twin Godavari districts and Yanam, too, might receive rains. With the forecast of squally weather with wind speed reaching 40-50 kmph gusting to 60 kmph likely over coastal Andhra Pradesh and Yanam, IMD advised fishermen all along coastal AP and Yanam not to venture into the sea till November 19. On the likely impact of the low-pressure area, the Met department said there might be disruption of traffic in major cities due to waterlogging.
