New Delhi: The National Weather Forecasting Centre of the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has informed that the cyclonic storm "Tauktae" has weakened further into a well-marked low-pressure over east Rajasthan and adjoining west Madhya Pradesh.
The remnants of the extremely severe Tauktae is expected to move further northeastwards to Uttar Pradesh during the next 24 hours.
"The Well-marked low-pressure area over east Rajasthan and adjoining west Madhya Pradesh has further weakened into a low-pressure area and lay centred at northwest Madhya Pradesh and neighbourhood at 5.30 a.m. on Thursday," the IMD said.
The cyclone has killed as many as 46 people in Gujarat, while 49 from the barge still missing, even as the Navy continues to search on the fourth day.
Meanwhile, the Southwest Monsoon is likely to advance into South Andaman Sea and adjoining the southeast Bay of Bengal around Friday.
Several parts of Delhi has received the highest ever 24-hour rain on Wednesday and Thursday due to the impact of Cyclone Tauktae.
According to IMD, the rainfall in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, northern Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand on Wednesday was the result of interaction between the remnant of cyclonic storm Tauktae and a western disturbance.
The Western Disturbance as a cyclonic circulation over Jammu and Kashmir and neighbourhood between 3.1 and 3.6 km above mean sea level with a trough aloft with its axis at 5.8 km above mean sea level now runs roughly along longitude 71 degree east to the north of latitude 27 degree north.
The cyclonic circulation over central Assam at 0.9 km above mean sea level persists.
The cyclonic circulation over Southeast Bay of Bengal and neighbourhood between 3.1 km and 5.8 km above mean sea level also persists.
A low-pressure area is likely to form over the north Andaman Sea and adjoining east-central Bay of Bengal around Saturday said the IMD.
