A low-pressure area formed over the South Andaman Sea on Friday is likely to intensify into a cyclonic storm and reach the Andhra Pradesh-Odisha shores early next week, causing heavy rains in the east coast states.

The cyclone – to be named Asani – will bring rainfall to several areas. The low-pressure area is very likely to move northwestwards and intensify into a depression over the southeast Bay of Bengal.
