In a recent weather update, Soma Sen, a Senior Scientist at the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), reported the formation of a low-pressure area in the Bay of Bengal. According to Sen, this change in weather is expected to intensify and move northwards in the coming days. Anticipating its impact, the IMD has issued alerts across various regions.
Sen indicated that residents of east India and northeast India may expect heavy to extremely heavy rainfall ranging from 12 to 20 cm on November 15th, 16th, and 17th. Moreover, a heightened concern exists for the southern districts of West Bengal and districts of north-coastal Odisha, where the possibility of very heavy rains looms large. Recognizing the gravity of the situation, the IMD promptly issued alerts in these identified vulnerable areas, urging residents and local authorities to exercise heightened caution.
In addition to the looming low-pressure system, Sen highlighted the approach of a weak western disturbance. This weather change is anticipated to bring about changes in the northern region. Specifically, there is a likelihood of snowfall and light rains in North Jammu and Kashmir.
The weather advisory also urges residents, local authorities, and emergency services to remain vigilant and be prepared for the impending rainfall. With the synchrony of the intensifying low-pressure area and the approaching western disturbance, the IMD underscores the importance of staying informed through official channels to ensure the safety and well-being of communities in the affected regions.
As weather conditions continue to evolve, continuous monitoring and timely communication become imperative for effective disaster preparedness and response. This comprehensive weather advisory, guided by Sen’s insights, underscores the necessity for residents, local authorities, and emergency services to maintain a state of vigilance and preparedness for impending meteorological developments. It emphasizes the importance of staying informed through official channels to ensure the safety and well-being of communities in the potentially affected regions. The collaborative efforts of meteorological agencies and local administrations are crucial in mitigating potential risks and safeguarding the affected populations.
