The Inter Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) is quite active at present, closer to the Equator. Currently, there are two cyclonic circulations marked in the ITCZ. One of them was over the Comorin region and its adjoining areas. The second cyclonic circulation was seen over Southwest Arabian Sea and its adjoining areas.
Both these systems were becoming more marked and shifted away from the Indian mainland. These systems merged and have become a low-pressure area in the Southwest Arabian Sea. The system thereafter will become even more marked, but it will keep following a westward trend.
