On Friday i.e. on the eve of Maha Saptami, the depression over the Bay of Bengal off coastal Odisha is said to cross West Bengal and Bangladesh coasts over the Sundarbans. Light to moderate rainfall is expected to take place in a few places. Heavy to very heavy rainfall is expected to occur at isolated places over Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Assam, Tripura, and Meghalaya due to not so favorable conditions. The low pressure is likely to bring rain in East Midnapore, North 24 Parganas and South 24 Parganas, Kolkata, Howrah, Hooghly, and Nadia

The depression has moved northeastwards with a speed of 10 km per hour during the last six hours and is situated about 90 km east-south-east of Paradip in Odisha, 170 km south-south-west of Sagar Islands in West Bengal, and 340 west-south-west of Khepupara in Bangladesh. By Friday the depression is likely to move north-north-eastwards and cross West Bengal and parts of Bangladesh between Sagar Islands and Khepupara over the Sundarbans.

The warning has been given to fishermen and merchant vessels at sea by the Indian Coast Guard, requesting them to move to the nearest harbor. Therefore, adverse weather conditions over the coast of Odisha and West Bengal are expected.
