CHENNAI: The well-marked low pressure area over the Southeast Bay of Bengal and adjoining South Andaman sea with associated cyclonic circulation is likely to intensify into a deep depression by December 6, but its track is still unclear. It may hit or miss Chennai.
The Met office on Monday said the system was likely to move towards the north Tamil Nadu-south Andhra Pradesh coasts by Friday.Indications are that the system would miss the Tamil Nadu coast and go towards Andhra.
The joint weather bulletin, issued by the IMD and INCOIS, has advised fishermen along and off the Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu coasts not to venture into sea during December 6-8.
Meanwhile, the effect of the cyclone Ockhi has completely vanished from south Tamil Nadu as fewer weather stations recorded any rainfall in the State. Aranmanaipudur in Theni received the highest rainfall of 60 mm.
Ockhi has moved to the east central Arabian sea and is about 630 km southwest of Mumbai and 810 km south-southwest of Surat.
