The low pressure over the Arabian Sea intensified into a depression on Saturday but is moving away from the Indian coast and no adverse weather is likely over the west coast, the Cyclone Warning Division of the IMD said.

“Yesterday’s well marked low pressure area over eastcentral Arabian Sea off north Maharashtra coast moved west-northwestwards, concentrated into a depression,” the CWD said.

“It is very likely to move nearly westwards during the next 48 hours and weaken gradually thereafter. As the system is very likely to move away from the Indian coast no adverse weather associated with this system is likely over the west coast of India,” it added.
