Burevi is unlikely to be as intense as Nivar, informed IMD Director General Mrutunjay Mohapatra.
It is expected to first hit Sri Lanka on December 2 and then Tamil Nadu on December 4.
The Cyclone Warning Division of the IMD said a deep depression intensified into cyclonic storm ‘Burevi’ on Tuesday evening.
It is very likely to cross the Sri Lanka coast close to Trincomalee during the evening or night of December 2 as a cyclonic storm with a wind speed of 75-85 kilometres per hour gusting to 95 kmph, the IMD’s Cyclone Warning Division said.
