Cyclone Ockhi 2017: Latest news and updates on first cyclonic storm of season

10:25 AM

Updated on December 6, 2017 10:20 AM: Cyclone Ockhi has weakened into a well marked low pressure area.

Updated on December 5, 2017 07:00 PM: Ockhi is now seen as a Deep Depression over the east-central Arabian Sea. It is presently centered at Latitude 19°N and Longitude 71.3°E, around 260 km south­southwest of Surat and 140 km west of Mumbai. According to Skymet Weather, the deep depression would continue to move north­northeastwards. During this time, the system would weaken further and cross the Indian coast between South Gujarat and adjoining North Maharashtra near Surat as a Depression by tonight. In fact, there is also a possibility of dissipation of the system over the sea before making the landfall as the system is now tracking in unfavorable weather conditions. According to weathermen, the system has entered into relatively cooler sea surface temperatures and high vertical wind shear and both the factors do not support the system.
