Kerala weather 17/11/23: The Deep Depression likely to become a cyclonic storm today

Deep Depression likely to become a cyclonic storm

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted that the deep depression that formed over the westcentral Bay of Bengal yesterday is likely to intensify into a cyclonic storm today (17/11/23). The cyclone is likely to form close to the Bangladesh coast. Earlier, Metbeat Weather had also monitored the possibility of a cyclone, but in its review report yesterday morning, it was stated that there was no possibility of a cyclone.

The sea has warmed up

The reason for such a report is the conclusion that the deep depression may not be more intensifying due to friction while travelling close to the coast. However, with sea surface temperature (SST) hovering around 29-30 degrees Celsius along and off the Bengal and Bangladesh coasts, the cyclone is likely to pick up speed for some time before making landfall. This is because the hot sea provides more energy.

If the cyclone forms, there will be heavy rainfall along the Indian coast from Odisha to the north. Rainfall in West Bengal and southeastern states.

By tomorrow, the cyclone will make landfall between Mongla and Kepupara in Bangladesh. The wind speed is expected to be 80 kmph when it reaches the shore.

Meanwhile, a trough has been formed from the cyclonic circulation formed near Sri Lanka. It has an impact on low altitudes of the atmosphere. So south Tamil Nadu and Kerala will be responsible for isolated rains.

Isolated rain in Kerala

There is a possibility of isolated rainfall in different parts of Kerala. Light to moderate rain is likely to occur from the coastal areas of Kozhikode district, coastal area of Ernakulam, Thrissur, Alappuzha and Thiruvananthapuram districts, Kottayam, Pathanamthitta, Idukki, Kollam and the eastern part of the districts. Kannur and Idukki districts received heavy rains yesterday.
