“A low-pressure area lies over coastal odisha and adjoining north-west Bay of Bengal. The associated cyclonic circulation extends up to the middle tropospheric levels tilting south-westwards with a height. It’s likely to move west-north-westwards during the next 48 hours across interior Odisha, Chhattisgarh, and north-east Madhya Pradesh,” meteorology department officials said.
