The cyclonic circulation over southwest Bay of Bengal off north Tamilnadu coast at 7.6 km above means sea level has merged with the east-west shear zone,” read the IMD’s weather inference for Saturday.
“A Low-Pressure Area is likely to develop over Northeast Bay of Bengal & neighbourhood by tomorrow, the 20th September 2020, It is likely to become more marked over Northwest Bay of Bengal & neighbourhood during subsequent 24 hours.
