BHUBANESWAR: Under influence of a cyclonic circulation, a low pressure area formed over north-east Bay of Bengal and adjoining areas of Bangladesh and Gangetic West Bengal on Saturday.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) said, the system would concentrate into a depression in next 48 hours. It will not hold a regular course of north-west-north direction but instead, turn back southwards. The weather office said, the system, which is stationary, will move close to the coast before entering Odisha.

Under its impact, rain and thundershower would occur at most places over Odisha. Heavy to very heavy showers may occur at one or two places over North Odisha during the next 24 hours.

On Saturday, the cyclonic circulation induced rains in many parts of Coastal and Western Odisha. Bhubaneswar, Cuttack and Jharsuguda recorded over 30 mm rain during the afternoon.

Pilgrim Town Puri also received continuous drizzle which left Grand Road waterlogged. The Bahuda Yatra may also receive sporadic showers although heavy and continuous rainfall is not expected, the weather office said. Intensity of rainfall is expected to increase from Monday onwards.

Meanwhile, the IMD said gusty surface wind reaching a speed of 45 to 50 km per hour may blow over North and South Odisha coast. Fishermen have been advised not to venture into sea.
