Low Pressure forms in Bay of Bengal, might intensify into a Cyclone

October 20, 2023 7:09 PM |

A low-pressure area has formed over the south-central and adjoining southeast region of the Bay of Bengal. A cyclonic circulation had already formed over the Bay of Bengal under whose influence the system has formed.

We expect the system to intensify further and move towards the west-central and adjoining northwest Bay of Bengal. In fact, in just about 48 hours, this system is expected to become a depression, which is on October 22. Moreover, there is a very likely possibility of this system becoming a deep depression on October 23.

The system will shift north-northeastward abeam North Odisha and the Bengal Coast. However, it will maintain a safe distance from the coasts.

There are some signs that indicate that this system may also become a mild cyclonic storm, sometime around 24th-25th October. However, it is slightly premature to talk about the system's further development as of now. If formed, the Cyclone will be named ‘Hamoon’.
