Bhubaneswar: The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a forecast indicating the likelihood of substantial rainfall across Odisha beginning on September 29. This is due to the potential formation of a cyclonic circulation over the north Andaman Sea and its surrounding areas.

According to the midday bulletin from the weather office, this cyclonic circulation could lead to the development of a low-pressure system over the north Andaman Sea and the east-central Bay of Bengal in the next 24 hours. Subsequently, it may move in a west-northwest direction, possibly intensifying as it progresses.
