Odisha’s coastal regions are set to experience a rainy Dusshera with the creation of a low-pressure area in the Bay of Bengal on Friday, as the IMD has predicted rainfall from October 23. From October 23 to 25, rain is expected in the state’s coastal districts, according to the IMD.


According to the regional office of the India Meteorological Department (IMD) in Bhubaneswar, ‘a low-pressure area has formed over the Bay of Bengal…,’ on day X. Around October 23, it warned, the system is likely to worsen even more and enter a depression.


‘Under its impact, some parts of coastal Odisha would experience rainfall activities from October 23 to 25. Whether heavy rainfall would occur or not, can be predicted only after knowing the path of movement of the depression,’ IMD centre director H R Biswas said.
