The deep depression, remnant of super cyclonic storm Amphan, weakened into a well marked low pressure area over north Bangladesh and neighbourhood early on Friday, the Met said.
The cyclone left behind a trail of devastation in the West Bengal capital and other places killing at least 84 people across India and Bangladesh. Amphan made landfall in Kolkata on Wednesday, lashing coastal areas with ferocious wind and rain.
Post cyclone, well marked low pressure area is now over north Bangladesh and neighbourhood. “It is very likely to continue to move north-northeastwards and weaken further into a low pressure area during the next 12 hours,” said the IMD.
On Friday, the department in its morning bulletin warned that Assam and Meghalaya can witness light to moderate rainfall at most places with heavy to very heavy at isolated places very likely over west Assam and isolated heavy falls over Meghalaya during next six hours.
