Following Nivar, another cyclonic circulation is forming in the Indian Ocean and adjoining South Andaman Sea due to which extremely heavy rains can be expected around December 2 and 3 over Tamil Nadu and Puducherry, IMD has said.
Its latest update states that a cyclonic circulation lies over East Equatorial Indian Ocean and adjoining south Andaman Sea and extends up to 5.8 above mean sea level.
Under its influence, a low pressure area is very likely to form over Southeast Bay of Bengal during next 48 hours. It is likely to concentrate into a depression during subsequent 24 hours and likely to intensify further thereafter. It is likely to move nearly westwards and reach Tamil Nadu-Puducherry coasts around December 2.
Under the influence of the above system, light to moderate rainfall at most places with isolated heavy to very heavy rainfall on December 1 and heavy to very heavy rainfall at a few places with isolated extremely heavy falls on December 2 and 3 are likely over Tamil Nadu, Puducherry and Karaikal.
Meanwhile, the well marked low pressure area lies over south coastal Andhra Pradesh and adjoining west central Bay of Bengal.
