Quick on the heels of Cyclone Sagar, another cyclone Mekunu has formed almost in the same region vacated earlier by Sagar in the Southwest Arabian Sea.
Mekunu has undergone rapid intensification to upgrade from a well marked low pressure area to a cyclonic storm in just about 24 hours.
Mekunu is presently marked around 950 km south southeast of Salalah in Oman. This system is expected to gain strength and become a severe cyclonic storm tomorrow, further intensifying into a very severe cyclonic storm before making landfall during the morning hours of May 26 near Salalah Oman.
This will be a very powerful storm with immense damaging potential to cause high velocity winds in excess of 150 kmph and torrential rains possible more than 200 mm in 24 hours time over Socotra Islands, North Yemen and South Oman.
As the system is expected to move away from the Indian Coast, no adverse weather is likely along and off the west coast of India.
