In terms of strength this system was much stronger than the rest of waves that followed after. The rainfall was mostly light with isolated moderate falls.

An upper air cyclonic circulations in the east central Bay of Bengal is likely to intensify into a low pressure area or further in the next 1 to 2 days that is likely to head in a North direction towards the Bengal region of the Sub-continent, the wind shear in the Bay of Bengal is also very little. However it is worth mentioning that since last one year Bay of Bengal has been very quiet. With no major depressions or cyclones. PWP hopes that the Bay of Bengal starts to behave normally!

  1. Hi,Want to know, Is there a possibility of formation of post monsoon cylones in arabian sea as i have read about it that it will intensify. Are there any possibilities of this low pressure converting into T.C or strong weather system. And further as tracks cannot be predicted untill it is fully formed but do you think condition are favourable for the ow pressure to move into arabian sea specially towards pakistan. As this year Bay was really quite and arabian sea is more active. Do you think we will be seeing some strong weather systems in near future along the coasts bordering arabian sea. Thanks

    1. Yes, there is a low pressure in SE Arabian sea but will it reach cyclonic storm status on IMD scale? thats too early now, westerlies are dominating much of PAK so low will have difficulty moving towards our coast if it tries to do so.
