"A low pressure area is likely to develop over central parts of south Bay of Bengal around November 6. It is very likely to move westnorthwestwards across SrilankaComorin area during November 68," S Balachandran, Director, Area Cyclone Warning Centre, said.
Speaking to reporters, he said the northeast monsoon, which had set in over south India on November 1, was likely to intensify during this period.
