Monday, November 23, 2020 • Tamil Comments

Cyclone Nivar, which has been in the news for the past 24 hours, has its origin in the Bay of Bengal. The news is that it is inching closer towards Tamil Nadu and Puducherry, besides Andhra Pradesh. As per IMD, the cyclone is expected to make landfall on Wednesday, resulting in heavy rains.

The IMD on Monday morning said that the Depression over southwest and adjoining southeast Bay of Bengal about 600 km south-southeast of Puducherry and 630 km south-southeast of Chennai is very likely to intensify into a cyclonic storm during the next 24 hours.

Heavy to extremely heavy rains are expected in Rayalaseema as well as south coastal AP on Wednesday and Thursday. Also, Visakhapatnam and East Godavari could receive rains.

Pradeep John, a weatherman, said that Nivar had simple steering but has now become a little complex one. "Heavy Rains are 100% confirmed for entire North TN including north interiors but still that crossing point remains a guess," he wrote.
