New Delhi: The India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Sunday issued ‘moderate’ to ‘very heavy’ rainfall alerts in the country’s southern region for the next two days. According to the IMD, rainfall is likely in the area because of a low-pressure area lying over the South-West Bay of Bengal off the Sri Lanka Coast and the associated cyclonic circulation (extending up to 3.1 km above mean sea level) is likely to move westwards during the next 48 hours.
