Season's first cyclonic storm that had formed yesterday has intensified into a very severe Cyclonic Storm. Moreover, Very Severe Cyclone Tej has become an extremely severe Cyclonic storm during the morning hours.

During the morning hours, the extremely severe storm was centred near Latitude 12.3 degrees North and Longitude 55.4 degrees East, about 160 km SSE of Socotra, 540 km SSE of Salalah, and 550 km SE of Al Ghadiah.

The storm is expected to move in a northwestward direction and will cross coast between the Yemen and Oman border close to Salalah by tomorrow, i.e. October 24.

Tej is expected to weaken much before the landfall to a severe cyclonic storm due to entrainment, friction due to the proximity of land and a drop in sea surface temperatures.
