Cyclonic Storm Tej Forms in Arabian Sea, Heading Towards Oman and Yemen

A low-pressure area in the southeast and southwest Arabian Sea has developed into a depression and is forecasted to intensify into a cyclonic storm named ‘Tej’ by October 21, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD). This marks the second cyclonic storm in the Arabian Sea this year, following ‘Biparjoy’ in June. The IMD predicts that ‘Tej’ will further strengthen into a severe cyclonic storm and move toward the south coasts of Oman and adjoining Yemen. However, meteorologists caution that storm paths can deviate from predictions, and different models suggest various tracks for ‘Tej’.

Cyclone ‘Tej’ Development

The IMD has reported that a low-pressure system, which later developed into depression ‘Tej,’ was centered around 900 km east-southeast of Socotra (Yemen), 1,170 km southeast of Salalah Airport (Oman), and 1,260 km east-southeast of Al Ghaidah (Yemen) as of 11:30 am on Friday. While several models indicate that the storm is heading for the Yemen-Oman coast, the Global Forecast System models suggest a recurvature, steering it towards Pakistan and the Gujarat coast. The cyclonic storm is characterized by sustained wind speeds between 62-88 kmph, while it becomes a severe cyclonic storm if the maximum sustained wind speed reaches 89-117 kmph.

Another Low-Pressure Area in the Bay of Bengal

In addition to ‘Tej,’ the IMD also mentioned the development of a low-pressure area over the southwest and southeast Bay of Bengal. This system is expected to intensify into a depression over the west-central Bay of Bengal around October 22. Initially moving west-northwestwards until Sunday morning, it will later recurve north-northeastwards towards the Bangladesh coast. The Indian subcontinent is closely monitoring the progress of these weather systems as they could bring significant changes in the region.
