According to IMD, the depression was lying  about 930 km to the east-southeast of Machillipatnam and 970 km south-southeast of Gopalpur on Thursday morning.

"However, there is a probability of slight weakening of the system when it reaches near north Andhra Pradesh and south Odisha coasts," it said.
