The low-pressure system over south-east and adjoining east-central Arabian Sea persisted on Thursday even as Cyclone Keila weakened into a deep depression.

The successor ‘low' in the Arabian Sea is being watched for signs for intensification, despite the fact that the seawaters may have cooled due to the torrential rain that Keila spawned.

BAY WATCH

To wards the other side of the trough of lower pressure in the Bay of Bengal has become more defined and covering even more the water body that previously.

On Thursday, the trough lay extended from Sri Lanka to the Andhra Pradesh coast, as if preparing the ground for a circulation system to develop in the area.

LESS CONFIDENT

Weather models are, however, not confident about the strength of the developing system in the Bay and seemed to rule out the formation of a major developing system in any case.

Insat imagery showed convective clouds rising over parts of south peninsular India, south-west Bay of Bengal, south Andaman Sea and north-west, south-east and adjoining central Arabian Sea.

HEAVY RAIN

During the last 24 hours on Thursday morning, rainfall occurred at most places over Lakshadweep, an India Meteorological Department (IMD) update said.

Rains fell also at many places over Tamil Nadu, Kerala, coastal and south interior Karnataka, Rayalaseema and south coastal Andhra Pradesh.

The IMD has warned about the possibility of heavy rainfall at one or two places over south coastal Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Lakshadweep during next two days.
