Bhubaneswar: The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted the formation of low-pressure areas in both the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea in the coming days. However, the IMD has assured that the low-pressure area in the Bay of Bengal is unlikely to disrupt the Durga Puja festivities in Odisha.
The low-pressure area in the Bay of Bengal is expected to form around October 20 and move towards the north Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh coasts. There is a low probability of this system further intensifying into a depression. As of now, there is no rainfall warning for Odisha until at least October 21.
The low-pressure area in the Arabian Sea is expected to form within the next 48 hours and intensify into a depression over the central Arabian Sea around October 21. The cyclone’s potential intensity is still under observation.
It is important to note that the development of these tropical storms in the Indian Seas could result in the naming of the cyclone as ‘Tej,’ following the naming conventions for cyclones in the Indian Ocean region.
