Recurving cyclone Vayu to give more rain in coastal Gujarat

June 15, 2019 12:35 PM |

Cyclone Vayu

The very severe Cyclonic Storm Vayu is still maintaining its intensity. In the last 24 hours, it has moved slowly westwards and now lies about 260 km west-southwest of Porbandar, 310 km west of Veraval and 360 Km west of Diu.

As the system has come closer to the COL region (where the winds are almost null) and the subtropical reach over Oman has weakened, there is a possibility of the system weakening rapidly in 48 hours.

As the northeasterly winds are strengthening in the higher levels, there is a possibility of the Cyclone Vayu recurving as a depression or a well-marked low over the northeast Arabian Sea and gradually moving towards Coastal Gujarat.

In the meantime, Northeast Arabian Sea will continue to experience very strong winds with a speed of 100-110 Kmph gusting at 135 Kmph. While coastal Gujarat will experience 50-60 kmph winds gusting at 80 Kmph, which will gradually weaken.

During this period of two days, rainfall activity will decrease along the coast and the interior parts of Gujarat, while the western parts of the state will continue to receive light to moderate rainfall. Interior parts will observe light rain.

After 48 hours, around June 17, rainfall activity will enhance along the coast of Southwest Gujarat like Porbandar, Dwarka Okha and Jamnagar. Good rains will be observed in the region during this period. It is advised that people don't venture out in the sea for at least next 3-4 days.
