India Met Department (IMD) has taken note of the ‘rogue’ circulation in West-central Arabian Sea, off the Oman coast, which has developed into a low-pressure area. Rainfall would scale up along the West Coast from Thursday, the Met Department said.

The Met Department located the ‘low’ would move northwestwards (towards Yemen-Oman) during the next two days. Meanwhile, it said conditions were favourable for further advance of the monsoon over some parts of south-east Arabian Sea and Comorin area (just off Kerala) during next three days. By this time, the rogue ‘low’ and its influence over the monsoon system would have died out, setting the stage clear for the onset over the Kerala coast.

The Met Department located the cyclonic circulation to over west-central and adjoining north-west Bay Bengal, an area thought ideal for formation of monsoon ‘low’s. Satellite imagery on Monday showed convective (rain-bearing) clouds standing tall over North Tamil Nadu, Bay of Bengal, Andaman Sea and south-east and west-central Arabian Sea.
