Cyclone Tej: Stormy Activities In Arabian Sea And Bay Of Bengal, Twin Cyclones Expected

The Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal have both turned into active storm basins, which is an uncommon occurrence. Experts in meteorology have forecast the formation of twin cyclones over the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal. This occurrence was last witnessed in 2018, when cyclones Luban and Titli formed simultaneously over the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal, respectively.

The India Meteorological Department reports that cyclone “Hamoon,” which is still in an early stage, is in the Bay of Bengal, and cyclone “Tej,” which is brewing in the Arabian Sea.

Cyclone Tej is expected to intensify into an extremely severe cyclonic storm later on Sunday afternoon over the Arabian Sea, according to an IMD post on X.

As per the weather agency’s latest bulletin, Cyclone Tej had moved west-northwestwards with a speed of 18 kmph during the past six hours and lay centred over the southwest Arabian Sea at 5.30 am Sunday.

“It is very likely to move west-northwestwards and intensify further into a very severe cyclonic storm during next 12 hours,” it added.

Tej will eventually travel towards Yemen’s border and the south coast of Oman, according to earlier IMD reports.

Concurrently, cyclone “Hamoon,” which is developing in the Bay of Bengal, is approaching the coast of Andhra Pradesh and is presently in an early stage.

A low-pressure region has formed over the southwest and adjacent southeast Bay of Bengal, according to the IMD Amaravati unit on Friday. Around October 23, the IMD predicted that the depression would likely deepen much more and eventually become a depression across the West Central Bay of Bengal.

By October 24, the system is probably going to develop into a cyclonic storm, according to the private weather forecasting firm Skymet.

India proposed the name “Tej,” and Iran chose the name “Hamoon” in accordance with the system used to name cyclones in the Indian Ocean region.

When the two cyclones form, they will be more than 2500 kilometres apart. Skynet predicts that since they are far away from one another, they will travel their track separately.

It is not anticipated that the cyclones would significantly affect India’s weather. It is anticipated that the weather in Chennai and the Tamil Nadu coastal districts would slightly shift as they move away.
