Bay ready to host the first major system for this season

An area of disturbed weather continues to prevail in the North Andaman sea. This is expected to organize itself over the next 24 to 48 hours and start moving towards the Indian shores. There is a great deal of uncertainty in the path and the timing of this system. Due to the presence of favorable conditions, there is a moderate possibility that this will be the first cyclone of this North East monsoon season. Meanwhile, interior thunderstorms are expected to continue in TN, with drier than normal weather in Chennai.
