Potential Cyclone Fani to cause week long rain in Sri Lanka

1:01 PM

Cyclone Fani Sri Lanka

The much talked about Low Pressure Area is brewing in the Bay of Bengal and Sri Lanka is all set to see some rains due to the system. The system is currently positioned over the Southeast Bay of Bengal and adjoining Equatorial Indian Ocean. Moreover, the low seems to be intensifying, and is showing good signs of further intensification.

The system is moving west north westwards and by tonight or early morning hours, it will become a Depression. Furthermore, the system will intensify into a Depression in subsequent 24 hours. In fact, it may then concentrate into a Cyclone by the evening of April 27 or morning of April 28. Until the formation, the system is likely to have a west northwestward movement.

However, after the formation into Cyclone Fani, it is likely to follow a northwestward track. This is when the system will be in proximity of Sri Lanka. However, despite being far away from the system currently, rain and thundershowers may be seen in parts of Sri Lanka today onward.

The intensity of these showers may not be that much until April 27. However, when the system does become a Cyclone and moves in proximity of east coast of Sri Lanka including Batticaloa, Trincomalee, rains may pick up pace. Sri Lanka will not be directly affected as the storm will not move through and through the nation.

However, some rains will continue over the nation for at least a week from now on. Potential Cyclone Fani is a slow moving one, due to which rainfall in Sri Lanka may get prolonged. Strong gusty winds will also be seen in parts with showers being heavy in some parts of the nation.
