Bhubaneswar/IBNS: Cyclone Asani is likely to bring light to heavy rainfall in isolated areas in Odisha, West Bengal and Andhra Pradesh from Tuesday, the weather office announced Sunday.

"The system lay centred at 5.30 AM over Southeast Bay of Bengal, about 450 km west-northwest of Car Nicobar (Nicobar Islands), 380 km west of Port Blair (Andaman Islands), 970 km southeast of Visakhapatnam (Andhra Pradesh) and 1030 km south-southeast of Puri (Odisha)," the weather office informed.

The system will remain in the form of a cyclonic storm till Sunday evening and later intensify into a severe cyclonic storm and will continue to remain in this form till May 10 night.

Subsequently, it will lose steam in the sea and become another cyclonic storm on May 11 and 12.
