New Delhi: The low-pressure area over the southeast and the adjoining southwest Arabian Sea, which has developed into a depression, is likely to intensify into a cyclonic storm by October 21 morning, stated the India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Friday.
This cyclonic storm will be called ‘Tej’, according to a formula followed for naming cyclones in the Indian Ocean Region.
It is expected to intensify into a severe cyclonic storm on Sunday and move toward the south coasts of Oman and adjoining Yemen, according to the IMD.
However, meteorologists caution that at times, storms may deviate from the predicted track and intensity. Cyclone Biparjoy formed in the Arabian Sea in June initially moved in a north-northwest direction before changing course to make landfall between Mandvi in Gujarat and Karachi in Pakistan.
