Mumbai, May 13 (PTI) The IMD on Thursday issued a

warning that a low pressure area formed over the Arabian Sea

is likely to intensify into a cyclonic storm by May 16, which

may bring heavy rainfall to Mumbai, some places in Goa and

south Konkan region and also Gujarat.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) said, "A low

pressure area has formed over the southeast Arabian Sea and

adjoining Lakshadweep area today. It is very likely to become

well marked over Lakshadweep area by Friday morning."

It will concentrate into a depression over the same

region by Saturday morning and intensify into a cyclonic storm

during the subsequent 24 hours, it said in the warning report.

It is very likely to intensify further and move

north-northwestwards Gujarat and adjoining Pakistan coasts, it

said.

It is likely to reach near Gujarat coast around May 18

evening, the IMD added.

Due to this, south Konkan and Goa region would receive

light to moderate rainfall at many places on Saturday and its

intensity would increase further and it would receive heavy to

very heavy rainfall at a few places on Sunday and Monday, it

said.

According to the department, 64.5 mm to 115.5 mm

rainfall in 24 hours is considered as heavy, while

precipitation between 115.6 mm to 204.4 mm in 24 hours is

termed as very heavy rainfall.

Sindhudurg and Ratnagiri districts form the south

Konkan region of Maharashtra.

Similarly, Gujarat coast would receive rainfall from

May 17 onwards. The intensity is expected to escalate during

the subsequent days with heavy to very heavy rainfall at a few

places over Saurashtra and Kutch on May 18 and isolated heavy

to very heavy rainfall over Kutch and adjoining southwest

Rajasthan on May 19.

As the region is going to be affected by cyclone

storm, the rains would be accompanied with gusty winds with a

speed ranging from 50 kilometre per hours to 80 kmph in next

5-6 days.

In a late evening forecast, the IMD said Ratnagiri and

Sindhudurg districts are very likely to receive heavy to very

heavy rainfall on Sunday and Monday, while Mumbai, Thane and

Raigad would receive very heavy rainfall on Monday.

Raigad is also expected to witness thunderstorm with

lightning and gusty winds from Saturday onwards.

Kolhapur and Satara in Western Maharashtra are

expected to receive heavy to very heavy rain at isolated

places in ghat areas on Sunday and Monday, while similar

warning is issued for Pune on Monday only, the report stated.
