STH stormwatch (22May2014 update) : JTWC changes predicted track

For further details go here
Whereas on 21May2014, the depression was seen moving east towards MyanMar, on 22May2014, the projected track shows the storm moving northwest towards Bangladesh and could well affect W. Bengal as well.
This forecast seems in keeping with the meteorological analysis by IMetD (22May2014) in its ALL INDIA WEATHER BULLETIN (Night), which states :-
'The depression over east central Bay of Bengal moved north-northwestwards and lay centered at 1730 hours IST of today, near lat.17.5°N and long. 92.0E, about 650 km north-northwest of Port Blair. It would move north-northwestwards during next 48 hours'
