The third cyclonic storm of the season, Vardah has finally formed in the Southeast Bay of Bengal. After Cyclone Kyant and Nada, this is the third cyclonic storm to have formed during the Northeast Monsoon season.

Last night, the system had intensified into a deep depression in Southeast Bay of Bengal and was moving northwards. Now, it has intensified into a cyclonic storm Vardah at 5:30 am in the morning. During that time, Vardah was near Latitude 11.2°N and Longitude 90.5°E. The system lies about 1060 km SE of Visakhapatnam and 1150 km ESE of Machilipatnam along with being 340 km NW of Car Nicobar and 240 km WSW of Port Blair.

The system is expected to further intensify into a severe cyclonic storm and will continue to move towards north for some time and will recurve in northwest towards Andhra Pradesh coast. This will be the first cyclone of this season to have gone under such intensification. All the other cyclones have only managed to become cyclonic storms and weakened thereafter.

The reason for the intensification of this storm can be attributed to warm sea surface temperatures of the Bay of Bengal and longer sea travel. The system will continue to give heavy to very heavy rains over Andaman and Nicobar Islands during the next 24 to 48 hours.
