The India Meteorological Department (IMD), on May 31, issued a red-colour coded warning to coastal Maharashtra and Gujarat for June 4 in view of a cyclonic storm, named 'Nisarga', in the Arabian Sea.

The system will bring strong winds and heavy to very heavy rainfall to coastal Maharashtra and Gujarat.

The IMD has issued an orange-colour coded warning to Kerala, coastal Karnataka, Goa and coastal Maharashtra for June 1. The same warning applies to coastal Maharashtra and Goa for June 2.

A low pressure is currently over east central Arabian Sea and the Lakshadweep Islands. It is likely to intensify into a depression in the next 12 hours and a cyclonic circulation in the next 24 hours," news agency PTI cited IMD’s Cyclone Warning Division as saying. A low pressure area is the first stage of any cyclone.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a red alert for coastal Maharashtra and Gujarat for 4 June due to the cyclonic storm Nisarga in the Arabian Sea. The weather department says that "low pressure" formed over the Arabian Sea is expected to move towards Maharashtra and Gujarat and will cause rainfall over both the states.

According to a report by Moneycontrol, the IMD has also issued an orange code warning for Kerala, coastal Karnataka, Goa and coastal Maharashtra for today.
The same warning has been issued for coastal Maharashtra and Goa for 2 June.

Here are 10 things to know about Cyclone Nisarga:

IMD's Cyclone E-Atlas, which has been tracking cyclones and weather depressions over the north Indian Ocean, said no weather system has turned into a cyclone and made landfall near Mumbai along the Maharashtra coast during the month of June since 1891.

Stronger than usual winds and showers are expected to lash the coast of Maharashtra on the evening of 2 June and in the first half of 3 June, Hindustan Times, citing Akshay Deoaras, an independent meteorologist and PhD researcher at the University of Reading, UK, reported.

IMD issued warning of heavy rainfall and rough sea conditions for fishermen and coastal authorities in Kerala, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Goa and Gujarat for Tuesday and Wednesday.
Maharashtra may face wind speed of 90 to 100 kmph on 3 June.

The Kerala State Disaster Management Authority (KSDMA) has stopped all fishing activities off the coast as wind speed reaching 45 - 55 kmph and gusting at 65 kmph is likely to prevail along the coast of Kerala and over Lakswadeep as well.

The KSDMA has also sounded yellow alert in nine districts on Monday, warning them to expect heavy rain.
Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thacke000ray has requested fishermen to avoid venturing into the sea for the next two to three days as a cyclone is expected to hit the Arabian Sea.

The IMD said a low pressure area intensified into depression on Monday morning. It will intensify into a Cyclonic Storm and cross north Maharastra and south Gujarat coast during the evening or night of 3 June.

India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Monday (June 1) said that the well-marked low-pressure area over the south-east and adjoining east-central Arabian Sea and Lakshadweep area concentrated into a depression on Monday morning.

According to IMD, the depression is located about 370 kilometers (km) southwest of Panjim; 690 km south-southwest of Mumbai and 920 km south-south-west of Surat. It is expected that the depression would intensify into a deep depression over the next 12 hours and into severe cyclonic storm Nisarga by Wednesday (June 3).

The IMD predicted that initially Nisarga would move towards northwards till Tuesday morning and then recurve north-northeast wards and cross north Maharashtra and south Gujarat coasts between Harihareshwar (Raigad, Maharashtra) and the union territory of Daman on Wednesday evening. When it crosses the coast as a severe cyclonic storm it will have a wind speed of 105 to 115 km per hour (kmph) which may increase to 125 kmph. Konkan, Goa, parts of Maharashtra and Gujarat are expected to receive very heavy to extremely heavy rain till Thursday.

Fishermen have been advised not to venture into the south-east Arabian Sea, Lakshadweep area and along and off Kerala coast during next 48 hours; the east-central Arabian Sea and along and off Karnataka-Goa coasts till Wednesday; the east-central Arabian Sea along and off Maharashtra coast and the north-east Arabian Sea along and off Gujarat coast on Wednesday and Thursday because the sea is expected to be very rough.


“We’re expecting rapid intensification of the cyclonic system once formed because sea surface temperature is high, 

wind shear (variation in wind velocity) is low and ocean heat potential is also high,
said Sunita Devi, who is in-charge of cyclones at IMD, on Sunday
