As the depression over the Bay of Bengal crossed the south Odisha coast close to south of Puri, it is very likely to move west-northwestwards and weaken gradually, the MeT office in Bhubaneswar said today.
Under its influence, rain and thundershower is likely to occur at most places over Odisha, the MeT office said.
Heavy to very heavy rainfall at a few places with extremely heavy rainfall at one or two places over interior Odisha and heavy to very heavy rainfall at one or two places over districts of coastal Odisha is likely to occur during next 24 hours, it said.
Strong gusty surface wind from southeasterly direction in north Odisha coast and northwesterly direction in south Odisha coast with speed reaching 45-55 kmph gusting to 65 kmph is likely to prevail along and off the Odisha coast.
As sea conditions would be rough to very rough, fishermen are advised not to venture into sea, the MeT office added.
