Bhubaneswar: When Odisha has started reeling under cold condition in the ongoing winter season, the Regional Meteorological Centre on Sunday predicted that the low pressure formed over the south Andaman sea is likely to trigger rain in several parts of Odisha from December 7.
As per the bulletin, the well marked low pressure area over south Andaman Sea & adjoining strait of Malacca now lies over north Sumatra coast and adjoining south Andaman Sea with associated cyclonic circulation extends upto 5.8 km above mean sea level.
The system is very likely to turn into a Depression over southeast Bay of Bengal & neighbourhood during next 24 hours.
Heavy rainfall is predicted mostly in the southern part of the state under the influence of this low pressure.
