“The possibility of the system converting into the first cyclone of this post monsoon season cannot be ruled out. If a cyclone comes up, it will be named Luban – a name given by Oman,” Skymet Weather stated on Tuesday.
“The system is expected to come up in the lower latitude and will go for Yemen and Oman following a west-northwest direction. The system is expected to cause extremely heavy showers in India over parts of Kerala between October 5 and 8. Parts of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry should also watch out for an upcoming system in the Bay of Bengal along with this one, which may give heavy rainfall activity over these areas,” Skymet stated.
Jason Nicholls, senior meteorologist/international forecasting manager, AccuWeather, mentioned, “Rainfall will increase from south Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, and Sri Lanka by late weekend. Low pressure forms over Arabian Sea this weekend and becomes a cyclone next week. Main threat area from cyclone is from Oman to south Pakistan late next week/next weekend.”
Meanwhile, the Indian Meteorology Department (IMD) has maintained that a low stress location is probably to create more than southeast Arabian Sea about October six. “It is likely to intensify into a depression and move northwestwards,” IMD mentioned.
