Bhubaneswar: The cyclonic circulation over Northwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining Gangetic West Bengal and Bangladesh now lies over Northwest West Bengal and adjoining areas of Gangetic West Bengal and Odisha.

While it has triggered rainfall at a few places over the districts of south interior Odisha and one or two places over the rest districts, more rain is expected in several parts of Odisha in the next two days, informed the India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Friday.

In the next 24 hours, thunderstorm with gusty wind speed reaching 30-40 kmph and lightning likely to occur at one or two places over the districts of Coastal Odisha and Malkangiri, Koraput, Rayagada, Kandhamal, Mayurbhanj, Keonjhar, Sundargarh, Jharsuguda, Sambalpur, Kalahandi, Angul, Nuapada, Bolangir and Boudh.

Heavy rainfall is also likely to occur at one or two places over the districts of Mayurbhanj and Coastal Odisha, while the sky will be partly cloudy with possibility of moderate rain or thundershower in Bhubaneswar and neighbourhood areas for the next 24 hours, as per the IMD.

Due to the likelihood of squally weather along and off Odisha Coast and North West Bay of Bengal, fishermen are advised not to venture into along and off the Odisha coast during next two days.
