Cyclone Nisarga, which weakened into a low pressure area, is likely to enter Madhya Pradesh by Thursday evening from the southern parts of the state, instead of the western parts as predicted earlier, an official of the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said. IMD officials said that the cyclone has weakened into a cyclonic storm before entering Madhya Pradesh from neighbouring Maharashtra, and is likely to lose its intensity further.
Meanwhile, IMD also reported that a low-pressure area is likely to develop over eastern parts of west-central Bay of Bengal around June 8. Due to this low-pressure area, Odisha is likely to witness heavy rainfall from June 10.
Due to strong winds along the west coast, Mumbai has received 50 mm of rainfall at Colaba and 25 mm at Santacruz in the 24 hours ending 8.30 am. Moderate spells of rain are likely to continue for next few hours. Cyclone Nisarga, which made landfall near Raigad district on Wednesday afternoon, claimed the lives of four people in separate incidents.
