According to the Bhubaneswar Meteorological Centre, a low pressure area is likely to develop over North and West Central Bay of Bengal during the next 48 hours and is likely to become more well marked thereafter.
Under its influence, heavy to very heavy rainfall will lash parts of Malkangiri, Koraput, Rayagada, Gajapati, Nabarangpur, Kalahandi, Kandhamal, Ganjam, Mayurbhanj, Puri and Nayagarh till Monday.
The MET Centre also issued an “Orange Warning” for Malkangiri, Koraput, Nabarangpur, Kalahandi, Gajapati and Rayagada on Monday and Tuesday. It said heavy and very heavy rains may lash parts of these districts during the period.
