New Delhi: A low-pressure area over northwest Bay of Bengal is likely to cause heavy rainfall over the parts of East and Central India from today, the IMD said.

According to India Meteorological Department (IMD), “A low-pressure area has formed over northwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining Odisha and Gangetic West Bengal coasts today.”

It is likely to become more marked during subsequent 24 hours and move west­northwestwards across Odisha, it said.

Under this influence, fairly widespread to widespread rainfall activity with isolated to scattered heavy to very heavy falls very likely over most parts of East India & adjoining Central India.

Isolated extremely heavy falls (≥ 20 cm) also very likely over Odisha on June 11 and June 12; over Chhattisgarh during 11th-13th, over East Madhya Pradesh on June 13 and over Vidarbha on June 12th and 13th.

Due to the strengthening of westerly winds along the west coast in association with Low-Pressure area, widespread rainfall activity with heavy to very heavy falls likely to continue over coastal districts of Maharashtra from June 10 to 15 and over coastal Karnataka during June 12-15.

Isolated heavy rainfall is very likely over Kerala from 12th to 15th June 2021, the IMD said.
