BHUBANESWAR: Odisha will receive more rains from Wednesday as the low pressure formed over Northwest Bay of Bengal and the neighbourhood became well-marked on Tuesday.

The system, which is poised to move west-northwest, will trigger heavy rains during the next 48 hours, the Met department said.

Under its influence, almost all parts of the State will receive rain or thundershowers while one or two places over North and South Odisha will experience heavy to very heavy rainfall on Wednesday.

Moderate to heavy rainfall or thundershower would occur in most districts.

Gusty surface wind reaching 35 to 45 kmph is likely to prevail along and off the Odisha coast during the day. With the sea condition predicted to be rough, the Met department has advised fishermen to be cautious while venturing into the sea.

The State received decent rainfall in the past 24 hours with Balangir recording the highest at 148 mm followed by Koraput at 128 mm.

The Pilgrim City of Puri recorded 107 mm rainfall.

The Met department has, meanwhile, stated that the first depression of this year formed over Odisha recently and its westerly movement has activated monsoon conditions over many parts of Central India.

Under its influence, the weekly rainfall for the country ending July 25 was above 24 per cent, which is highest of the season so far.

Odisha, West Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, West Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Madhya Maharashtra, Vidarbha, Chhattisgarh and south interior Karnataka received excess rainfall to the tune of 20 per cent above normal. The southwest monsoon is likely to continue its active phase, especially over East and Central India, till July end and thereafter, the department has forecast.
