Low pressure area in Bay of Bengal may cause rain in Odisha
New Delhi, June 9 (IANS) The India Meteorological Department (IMD) said, here on Tuesday, a low pressure area had formed in the Bay of Bengal under the influence of the cyclonic circulation over the same region.

Due to the low pressure, widespread rain is likely over Odisha, north coastal Andhra Pradesh and Telangana during June 9-10 and over central India during June 11-13.

It's likely to move west northwest-wards and become well marked during the next 48 hours.

The IMD had earlier said the low-pressure area would help the southwest monsoon to advance into some parts of Sikkim, Odisha and West Bengal.

It comes on the heels of cyclone Amphan and Nisarga, which made landfall on May 20 and June 3, killed several people, flattened villages and destroyed farms. Prior to super cyclone Amphan, a low pressure area had formed in the Bay of Bengal on May 13.
