Hyderabad: Regions of Telangana and Seemandhra would receive moderate to heavy rainfall for the next two and four days respectively, due to the deep depression that has formed in the Arabian Sea.
Director, IMD Hyderabad, K. Sitaram, said, “Presently, the deep depression in Arabian Sea is 1,400 km from Mumbai coastline and is moving in a west-north-west direction. The intensity of the cyclone can be gauged only by Sunday when it comes further near the coastline.”
The IMD official added that, if the cyclone turns a little towards the north, it is likely to hit the coastline of Kutch district and other western coastal areas of Gujarat. The cyclone would also hit the coastline of Pakistan. If the cyclone inclines a little over west then it would hit the Oman state of Saudi Arabia.
The effect of this system (depression) formation is resulting in rain in the regions of Maharashtra, Karnataka, AP, Telangana and Kerala. In the south as a result of the Northeast Monsoon that is on, rain would increase in the coming days and would become severe. Moderate to rather heavy rain would occur at many places over Rayalaseema and South Coastal AP.
