New Delhi: Cyclone “Tauktae” is very likely to move north-eastwards and weaken gradually into a well-marked low-pressure area during next 12 hours, the India Meteorological Department said.
Remnant of the system is very likely to move further north-eastwards across Rajasthan to west Uttar Pradesh during the next two days, said National Weather Forecasting Centre of the India Meteorological Department (IMD).
The deep depression (remnant of the extremely severe cyclonic storm Tauktae) over Gujarat region moved north-eastwards with a speed of about seven kmph during past six hours, weakened into a depression and lay centered at 5.30 a.m. on Wednesday near latitude 24.3 degree north and longitude 73.3 degree east over south Rajasthan and adjoining Gujarat region, about 60 kms west-southwest of Udaipur (Rajasthan) and 110 km east-northeast of Deesa (Gujarat region).
Light to moderate rainfall at most places with heavy to very heavy rainfall at isolated places is very likely over east Rajasthan on Wednesday.
The interaction of the remnant low pressure system with a trough in westerlies associated with a Western Disturbance is very likely to cause light to moderate rainfall at most places with heavy to very heavy falls and extremely heavy falls at isolated places over Uttarakhand, heavy to very heavy rainfall at isolated places over Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Chandigarh and Delhi, West Uttar Pradesh and Heavy rainfall at isolated places over Punjab, East Uttar Pradesh, north Madhya Pradesh and West Rajasthan during next 24 hours.
