Met. Dept. warning: strong winds, stormy seas


The Meteorology Department has alerted over warnings of rough sea conditions and strong winds that will prevail today and tomorrow.

The Met. Department forecasts that the low pressure area has developed in the north Andaman sea and adjoining South-east Bay Of Bengal Sea area , near latitude 12.8N, longitude 90.6E. It is very likely to move north-westwards, concentrate into a depression over east-central Bay of Bengal during next 06 hours. It is also very likely to intensify further into a cyclonic storm and move north-westwards during subsequent 48 hours.

Due to the active cloudiness within the sea area, latitudes 10.50N to 14.50N and longitudes 87.00E to 92.00E. (Red colored), the possibility for heavy showers or thundershowers and sudden roughness, associated with sudden increase of wind speed (up to 70-80 kmph) is high.

Therefore Naval units and fishing communities have been asked to be vigilant in this regard.
