The thunderstorm accompanied by lightning and gusty winds (speed reaching 30 to 40 kilometres per hour) very likely to occur at isolated places over Assam and Meghalaya.

The strong winds (speed reaching 50 to 60 kilometres per hour gusting to 70 kilometres per hour) are very likely over the east-central Arabian Sea and along and off south Maharashtra coast. The squally weather is likely over the southeast Arabian Sea, Karnataka, Kerala coasts and Lakshadweep area.

In its All India Weather Warning Bulletin, the well-marked low-pressure area lies over the east-central Arabian Sea and neighbourhood with the associated cyclonic circulation extending upto 4.5 kilometers above mean sea level. It is very likely to concentrate into a depression during next 12 hours and into a cyclonic storm during the subsequent 48 hours.

"It is likely to move initially east-northeastwards over the east-central Arabian Sea till 25 October and then west-northwestwards with gradual intensification." Also, the other well-marked low-pressure Area lies over coastal Andhra Pradesh and neighbourhood.
