Cyclonic storm Nada weakening in Northwest Bay of Bengal


Dhaka – The cyclonic storm Nada moving towards the north west Bay from south east Bay of Bengal is getting weak and may shrink into a depression to deep depression that may eventually weaken further into a land depression over Tamil Nadu state of India sometime on Friday, Met Office sources said yesterday.It may peter out dumping heavy rains and influence weather back in Bangladesh with possibilities of light rains over the Chittagong Division, the sources added.
That may also turn the night warmer a little bit because of presence of stray clouds and high moisture content in the air that may also churn out fog in the early hours over the open spaces and wetlands and river basins and day temperature declining slightly, the Met forecast said yesterday in its 24 hour forecast.
The reason behind the demise of the cyclone instead of hitting the south eastern coast of India with ferocity was attributed to its rapid birth.
It brewed off a low pressure on Tuesday turning fast into a depression on Wednesday that rapidly intensified into a deep depression by Wednesday noon, graduating into a cyclonic storm by afternoon, stirring up a stormy sea in the north Bay with high winds blowing across.
That led to the Met Office asking the maritime ports of Chittagong, Cox’sBazar, Mongla and Paira to hoist distant warning signal no.2.
It also asked the fishing boats and trawlers in the north Bay and deep sea and proceed with caution without venturing into the deep sea until further notice, it said in its special weather bulletin no.3 issued yesterday. – Staff Reporter
