The Upper Air Cyclonic Circulation(UAC) over east central Arabian Sea off Karnataka Coast continues to persist and is seen extending up to 3.1 km above sea level. Under its influence a Low Pressure area could form in the same area within the next 12-24 hours. Meanwhile, further to the east and north in the Bay of Bengal, another UAC is seen to persist near North Andhra Pradesh coast. Under the combined influence of these two circulations and the seasonal (Inter Tropical Convergence Zone/Seasonal Trough)ITCZ seen located in the region, the atmospheric flow patterns in the south peninsular region would continue to support convective cloud formations leading to Thunderstorms and rains across much of interior TN , south interior Karnataka and parts of Rayalaseema during the next 24 -36 hours. Meanwhile, the extreme south east Bay and the adjoining Andaman Sea is kept on a watch for a probable genesis of a “Tropical Low”.
