Bhubaneshwar: Odisha is likely to experience heavy to very heavy rain and gusty surface wind in the next two days due to the formation of a depression over Gangetic West Bengal and adjoining north Bay of Bengal.

Under its impact, rain and thundershowers are likely to occur in most parts of north Odisha and in several areas in south Odisha districts in the next 24 hours.

Many parts of Odisha have been lashed by downpour for the last couple of days because of a cyclonic circulation and low pressure.

The depression system, which lay centred east-northeast of Balasore and northeast of Paradip, is likely to move west-northwestwards initially and then intensify into a deep depression during the next 24 hours, the meteorological centre said.

It may trigger heavy to very heavy rainfall at one or two places in Balasore, Bhadrak, Jajpur, Keonjhar, Sundergarh, Angul, Dhenkanal and Maurbhanj districts and heavy rainfall at one or two areas in Sonepur, Deogarh, Boudh, Jharsuguda and Sambalpur districts during the next 24 hours, it said.

The MeT office advised local cautionary signals be put up at the Paradip and Gopalpur ports.

Strong gusty surface winds from the northeasterly direction in north coastal Odisha and wind from the westerly direction in south coastal Odisha with a speed of 45-55 kmph and even up to 65 kmph are likely to prevail along the Odisha coast.

Sea condition would be rough to very rough, the MeT office said advising fishermen not to venture into the sea.
