Five-day precipitation accumulation

(TWC Met Team)

the Violent cyclonic storm “Asani” over the mid-west and adjacent south-west of the displaced Bay of Bengal is very likely to move almost northwest and reach the mid-west of the Bay of Bengal near the Kakinada-Vishakhapatnam coasts by Wednesday morning. Thereafter, it is very likely to slowly curve north-northeast and move along the Andhra Pradesh coast between Kakinada and Visakhapatnam, then emerge in the central west and northwest adjacent to the Bay of Bengal off the northern coasts of Andhra Pradesh and Odisha. It is likely to gradually weaken in a cyclonic storm Wednesday morning and into a depression Thursday morning.

The cyclone is likely to bring heavy to very heavy rain in a few places, with extremely heavy isolated falls on the Andhra Pradesh coast and heavy rain in isolated places on the Odisha and West Bengal coast until Thursday.

As a result, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) issued a “Red Warning” and “Amber Alert” for the Andhra Pradesh and Yanam coasts on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively. The red alert advises residents to “take action”.

Heat waves to severe heat wave conditions are highly likely in isolated pockets over western Rajasthan, eastern Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh through Saturday. Northern Madhya Maharashtra and Jammu division will experience a heat wave on Wednesday, Vidarbha until Thursday, and southern Haryana, Delhi and southern Punjab until Friday.

The following weather conditions are likely to occur over the next few days:

  • Fairly widespread to widespread light to moderate rainfall with thunderstorms, lightning and gusty winds over northeast India over the next five days.
  • Isolated heavy falls over Arunachal Pradesh from 13-14 May and over Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura until Saturday.
  • Isolated very heavy rains over Assam and Meghalaya through Friday.
  • Scattered to fairly widespread light to moderate rain over Kerala, Mahe, Lakshadweep, Andhra Pradesh Coast, South Karnataka Coast and Interior over the next five days.
  • Isolated to scattered rains over Telangana, Rayalaseema, North Interior Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Puducherry and Karaikal over the next five days.
  • Isolated heavy rain over Telangana on Wednesday.

The total suspension of fishing operations was announced in the central western Bay of Bengal on Wednesday and in the northwest Bay of Bengal until Thursday. The IMD advises fishermen at sea to return to the coast.
