News Highlights

  • The cyclonic storm Jawad will move at a kissing distance ( nearly 35 km away) from the coast of Puri on Sunday afternoon
  • The latest INCOIS model suggests that Cyclone Jawad will move parallel to Jagatsinghpur -Kendrapada coast as a Deep Depression at a distance of around 10-14km only.
  • Landfall on Dec 6 in South 24 Parganas of West Bengal

With the wind shear over the whole of Odisha landmass shooting up to touch over 27 knots, the Cyclone Jawad will seemingly be getting pushed more to the northeastwards. Since the system needs a wind shear of below 25 knots, the conditions look unfavourable for Cyclone Jawad to intrude into Odisha's Puri coast.

Live Updates: 'Jawad' Likely To Weaken By The Time It Reaches Puri Coast

As per the latest model data release by NCEP, ACCESS-G3 and JTWC, the cyclonic storm Jawad will move at a kissing distance ( nearly 35 km away) from the coast of Puri on Sunday afternoon, only to head towards the South 24 Parganas of West Bengal. Cyclone Jawad will weaken into a deep depression near the Puri coast.  

The latest INCOIS model suggests that Cyclone Jawad will move parallel to Jagatsinghpur -Kendrapada coast as a Deep Depression at a distance of around 10-14km only. Tracking northeast, Cyclone Jawad will make landfall in South 24 Parganas in West Bengal as a low pressure system on Monday night and further move into Bangladesh.

The model forecast chart shows that Cyclone Jawad will be charting a northward journey from the morning hours tomorrow, and by evening hours will be taking a northeast turn.

As per model analysis, the cyclonic system will move northwards from tomorrow early morning hours, and a northeast curve by evening will take it out of the bounds of the Odisha coast.

The Cyclone Jawad will move parallel to Puri during the afternoon to evening hours on December 5. At around the same hour, the system will weaken due to the high wind shear region to the west of the system, the model data analysis reveals.
