Bhubaneswar: The India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Thursday said a low-pressure area, which is most likely to form over the Bay of Bengal,  is expected to enhance rainfall activity in Odisha.

According to the IMD, a cyclonic circulation is likely to form over the west-central Bay of Bengal and the adjoining North Bay of Bengal on August 15 and may lead to formation of a low pressure area over the same region during the subsequent 48 hours. This cyclonic circulation will further intensify into a low-pressure area by August 16. The system will gradually move towards the Andhra Pradesh coast and then towards Telangana through Visakhapatnam.

Under the influence of the system, fairly widespread rainfall activity is likely over Odisha, coastal Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Vidarbha and Chhattisgarh.

There will also be heavy rain in the south coastal Odisha, especially in Koraput district. Apart from this, there will be moderate rainfall with isolated heavy rainfall in north Odisha, it added.
