Odisha weather

12 Nov 2017

Rain and thundershower coupled with gusty surface wind are likely to lash some areas in Odisha by tomorrow due to a low pressure over Bay of Bengal. The low pressure lies over Southwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining Sri Lanka Coast today, the Meteorological Centre here said. It said the associated upper air cyclonic circulation extends up to 7.6 km above mean sea level. Under its impact, rain or thundershower is likely to occur at one or two places over Odisha during next 24 hours. Gusty surface wind from northeasterly direction with a speed of 30 to 40 kmph and gusting up to 50 kmph is likely to prevail along and off Odisha Coast. Sea condition is likely to be moderate to rough along and off Odisha coast and fishermen are advised to be cautious while venturing into sea, the MeT office said.
