The low pressure area was today hovering  over westcentral Bay of Bengal off Andhra Pradesh coast. An  associated cyclonic circulation was also extending upto mid-tropospheric level. The twin systems is expected to trigger heavy to very heavy rainfall ( 64.5-204.4 mm) at isolated places of western (Simdega, Gumla, Latehar, Lohardaga), Central (Ranchi, Khunti, Ramgarh, Bokaro, Dhanbad, Jamtara) and northern parts (Chatra, Hazaribag, Koderma, Giridih).
