Weather forecast Today Live Updates: The low pressure over the Arabian Sea intensified into a depression on Saturday but is moving away from the Indian coast and no adverse weather is likely over the west coast, the Cyclone Warning Division of the IMD said. “Yesterday’s well-marked low-pressure area over the east-central Arabian Sea off north Maharashtra coast moved west-northwestwards, concentrated into a depression,” the CWD said.
The IMD has, however, cautioned fishermen from venturing into the central and north Arabian Sea. It said light to moderate rainfall at a few places is very likely over coastal districts of Saurashtra and Kutch during the next 24 hours. Sea conditions will be rough to very rough over east-central and adjoining northeast the Arabian Sea on October 17 and over central and northwest Arabian Sea on October 18.
A fresh low-pressure area is likely to trigger heavy to very heavy rainfall in several parts of Odisha early next week, PTI quoted weather officials as saying on Friday. A low-pressure area is likely to form over the central Bay of Bengal around October 19 and become more marked during the subsequent 24 hours, the weather department predicted. This will be the tenth low-pressure system over the Bay of Bengal since the beginning of August and the third this month.
