Under the combined influence of Upper Air Cyclonic circulation over W.Central Bay adjoining the Northwest Bay of Bengal and the dipping of the eastern part of Monsoon trough into the Bay waters, a fresh LPA has formed off North AP/South Odisha coast. Due to this disturbance, rainfall is likely to turn widespread and heavy over the Deccan region including districts of AP, Vidharbha, Odisha, parts of Eastern Madhya Pradesh & Chhattisgarh. This system would slowly move W-NW to merge with the monsoon trough over the next 4-5 days, thus extending the widespread rainfall period for the next 3 to 4 days over the aforementioned states. West Coastal states which are running a deficit this year are likely to see some widespread rainfall for next 3-4 days especially Kerala & Coastal Karnataka with developing off-shore trough in response to active low pressure area.
