The deep depression in the Arabian Sea has intensified into cyclonic storm 'Ashobaa'. It may develop into a 'super cyclonic storm' in next 24-36 hours. However, the landfall of the cyclonic storm may not happen in India.

Due to the storm moving north-north-westwards, heavy rainfall is expected at most places over coastal Karnataka, Konkan and Goa as well as south Gujarat with isolated heavy falls.

Director of Indian Meteorological Department (Gujarat) Jayanta Sarkar said the storm is not likely to hit the Gujarat coast, which is expected to receive heavy rainfall.  As a precautionary measure, danger signal number 2 has been hoisted at all ports of Gujarat.

The deep depression lay centred at 0830 hours of June 8 nearly 590 km west-southwest of Mumbai, 470 km southwest of Veraval and 960 km east-southeast of Masirah Island (Oman).

Strong winds speed reaching 70 to 120 kilometres per hour would prevail along and off Karnataka, Goa and Maharashtra coasts.

According to the met department, sea condition would be very rough to high along and off Karnataka, Goa and Maharashtra coasts.

Meanwhile, southwest  monsoon  has  further  advanced  into  some  more  parts  of  central  Arabian  sea,  Goa, some parts of south Konkan, remaining parts of coastal Karnataka and some more parts of south interior Karnataka.

Conditions are favourable for further advance of southwest monsoon into some more parts of central Arabian Sea,  Konkan,  Karnataka,  remaining  parts  of  Tamil Nadu,  some  parts  of  Rayalaseema  and coastal Andhra Pradeshand some more parts of central Bay of Bengal during next 2 days.

The southwest monsoon has been active over Arunachal Pradesh and Assam & Meghalaya during past 24 hours, says the met department.
