Light to moderate rainfall is present in many places, while heavy rainfall is likely in isolated places over Mizoram, Tripura, and South Manipur on May 25 and May 26,” it said. 

The weather office predicted rough to very rough sea conditions over the central and adjoining south Bay of Bengal from May 23 and over the North Bay of Bengal from May 24 onwards till May 26. 

“Squally weather with wind speed reaching 40-50 kmph gusting to 60 kmph is likely over central and adjoining South Bay of Bengal from May 23. It would extend to adjoining areas of the North Bay of Bengal with an increased wind speed of 50-60 kmph gusting to 70 kmph on May 24 morning,” it added.
