The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has strongly confirmed the probability of the formation of a cyclone over the Bay of Bengal after October 22. But have you ever wondered how are cyclones named and why. Read on to find out.
The IMD DG said cyclone predication is not made on the basis of a single model at the international level and similar is a case with the India Meteorological Department.
IMD scientist Umashankar Das said there is possibility of formation of a cyclonic circulation over the Bay of Bengal in coming days.
As Odisha braces up for another cyclone developing in the Bay as a low pressure, the State government on Friday put its action plan on place for deployment of response teams in regions most likely to be affected by the probable disaster.
Under high stress, farmers are wrapping up their work of harvest and dispatch the grains to safer places before the spells of rain begin.
Red warning for heavy to very heavy rainfall is very likely to occur at a few places with extremely heavy (>20cm) falls at one or two places over the districts of Gajapati, Ganjam, Puri and Jagatsinghpur on December 4.
As per IMD, the low pressure system is likely to move west -northwestwards and concentrate into a Depression by tomorrow (December 2) and further intensify into a cyclonic storm over Central Bay of Bengal during the subsequent 24 hours.
Days after forecasting clear sky conditions, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted formation of another low pressure and a subsequent cyclonic system in the Bay of Bengal. Here’s what IMD DG Mrutyunjay Mohapatra said on the weather forecast, while speaking exclusively to OTV.
INCOIS and ECMWF predict landfall in Andhra Pradesh, GFS, ACCESS bet on West Bengal. The consensus is Odisha will witness heavy rain and enough wind to damage crops
It’s hardly been 10 days since ‘Cyclone Gulab’ caused devastation in parts of Odisha, and formation of a fresh low pressure has triggered speculations regarding another cyclone in the state.
The Cyclonic Storm 'Gulab' over northwest and adjoining westcentral Bay of Bengal lay centered at 5:30AM Sunday morning (September 26), about 270 km east-southeast of Gopalpur (Odisha) and 330 km east of Kalingapatnam (Andhra Pradesh).
In just an hour time, the deep depression will become Cyclone Gulab. Moving towards the high pressure zone of Srikakulam, first rain in Odisha will start tonight from Berhampur to Puri, Bhubaneswar and Cuttack etc
The IMD said that heavy rainfall is very likely to occur at isolated places over the districts of Bhadrak, Kendrapada, Cuttack, Jagatsinghpur, Puri, Khordha, Nayagarh and Ganjam between 8 am of September 25 and 8 am of September 26.
The method developed by the scientists’ aims to identify initial traces of pre-cyclonic eddy vortices in the atmospheric column and track its Spatio-temporal evolution.
According to a CEEW study, after 2005, the yearly average of the number of districts in India affected by cyclones tripled and the cyclone frequency doubled. In the last decade alone, 258 districts were affected.
