We are now at the end of the cyclone season in the Bay of Bengal with winter right around the corner.2013 saw cyclone 'Mahasen' greeting the monsoon season and lets hope 'Phailin' was farewell to the rain bearing winds which are now on their way out of the sub-continent. Having said this though IMetD reported another low pressure over central parts of South Bay of Bengal on 20Oct2013, excerpts from Bulletin are below :
" The low pressure area over central parts of south Bay of Bengal and neighbourhood
" Prediction of meteorological condition :
The low pressure area over central parts of south Bay of Bengal would move northwestwards and would intensify into a well marked low pressure area during next 24 hours."
"The well marked low pressure area over southwest Bay of Bengal and neighbourhood may concentrate into a depression during next 24hrs."
A well marked low pressure has formed, likely movement - west northwestwards
