Port Blair, April 13: A cyclonic circulation has formed over extreme Southeast Bay of Bengal and adjoining the Andaman Sea. With the beginning of April, cyclone season of India has also commenced. It is assumed that India won’t have to wait for monsoon as this year it will be raining earlier than the previous years.As weather models are now indicating towards the development of a fresh weather system that may have the potential of increasing into a cyclonic storm the wait for cyclone might come to an end. People have to wait and watch which turn does the system takes. If it converts into a cyclonic storm it would be named as ‘Cyclone Mora’.
“A cyclonic circulation has formed over extreme Southeast Bay of Bengal and adjoining the Andaman Sea. At present, the circulation is extending up to 2.1 kilometers above sea level”, states Skymet Weather.
It is expected that the cyclonic circulation may move towards north-northwest and is likely to get more marked gradually.
The changes will be occurring accordingly:
April 14: It may intensify into a low-pressure area.
April 16: The system may gather more strength and turn into a well-marked low-pressure area. It will then track northwards. Due to its long sea travel, it is likely to be a slow-moving system.
April 19: It is likely to churn into north-northeast direction heading towards Bangladesh or Myanmar coast.
In this process, the system may give rainfall along the East Coast that may cover parts of Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, and West Bengal. However, any prolonged spell of heavy rains may escape the Indian coastal regions. India witnesses two cyclone seasons—pre-Monsoon in April and May and post-Monsoon in October, November, and December.
