Under its influence, various parts in southern states were likely to receive rainfall starting December 1, the IMD said in a series of tweets.

“A Low Pressure Area lies over South Andaman Sea adj SE (south east) Bay of Bengal and Equatorial Indian Ocean. It is very likely to concentrate into a depression during next 48 hours and likely to intensify further thereafter,” it said.
