A low-pressure system around the southeast and surrounding parts of the Bay of Bengal is the cause of the orange signal that the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued for Tamil Nadu and coastal Andhra Pradesh. The notice indicates the possibility of heavy rain in the region. A rain warning has been issued by the weather service for Sunday and Monday.

Within the following 48 hours, this depression is predicted to deepen into a cyclonic storm by MD Sunanda, Director of the Visakhapatnam Cyclone Warning Center, according to ANI.

IMD has also issued a warning, indicating that by Sunday, the depression over the Bay of Bengal is expected to become stronger and take on the name “Michaung,” a cyclonic storm.

The depression is around 500 kilometers east-southeast of Puducherry, 510 km east-southeast of Chennai, 630 km southeast of Nellore, and 710 km south-southeast of Machilipatnam, according to the weather office.

“During the following twelve hours, the depression is anticipated to deepen into a depression, and by December 3, it’s likely to develop into a cyclonic storm over the southwest Bay of Bengal. After that, by December 4 forenoon, it would proceed northwest and approach the beaches of neighboring north Tamil Nadu and south Andhra Pradesh, according to the IMD’s statement.

The beaches of south Andhra Pradesh and, to a greater extent, north Tamil Nadu are expected to be hit hard by the storm’s wrath. With wind gusts reaching 100 kmph, the storm is predicted to make landfall between Nellore and Machilipatnam on December 5 in the afternoon. Its highest sustained wind speed will be between 80 and 90 kmph.

“Thereafter, it would move nearly northwards almost parallel and close to the south Andhra Pradesh coast and cross south Andhra Pradesh coast between Nellore and Machilipatnam during the forenoon of December 5 as a cyclonic storm with a maximum sustained wind speed of 80-90 kmph gusting to 100 kmph,” according to the IMD release.

Over the southeast Bay of Bengal, the national meteorological office has issued an urgent wind warning due to squally weather with wind speeds of 45–55 kmph with gusts up to 65 kmph. Over the following twenty-four hours, there should be a reduction in these wind conditions. On the other hand, the climate system is preparing the hills and beaches of southern and eastern Indian states, such as Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, and Odisha, for moderate to heavy rainfall.

The weather for Saturday calls for light to moderate rains with sporadic heavy downpours throughout Puducherry and the north coastal regions of Tamil Nadu. But beginning on Sunday, the organization warns locals to brace themselves for a sharp increase in the amount of rain.

In anticipation of the predicted storm “Michaung,” the Puducherry government has declared a preemptive college vacation for December 4 in the Puducherry, Karaikal, and Yanam areas. Light to moderate rains are expected in coastal Andhra Pradesh on December 3, with severe to extremely heavy rainfall in isolated areas on December 4 and 5, according to IMD’s prediction.

In addition, Odisha has been placed under yellow and orange alerts, indicating that December 4 and 5 may see mild to heavy rains. Seven coastal districts—Bhadrak, Kendrapara, Jagatsinghpur, Puri, Khurda, and Ganjam—have been put on high alert by the Special Relief Commissioner in response.
