The Sea Becomes Agitated

A low-pressure system that formed in the southwestern Bay of Bengal is gradually moving towards the northeastern Bay of Bengal. It is expected to strengthen into a depression by Friday, May 24, and could transform into Cyclone “Re-Mal” within a day or two.

Meteorologists from Bangladesh and India have provided this information. Meteorologist Md. Omar Farooq stated that the low-pressure system might intensify into a depression and subsequently into a cyclone. However, the exact path of the cyclone will only become clear once it forms.

Indian meteorologist M. Sharma indicated that the low-pressure system might turn into a depression by late Friday night and reach the northeastern Bay of Bengal by Saturday. At that point, it could develop into Cyclone Re-Mal, a name given by Oman.

Sharma’s forecast suggests that the low-pressure system has the potential to gather maximum strength. Some models predict that it might move towards the Bangladesh-Myanmar coast, while others suggest it could strike West Bengal. The system is expected to approach the coast around May 26.

Due to the low-pressure system, the sea is becoming turbulent. Currently, wind speeds at the center are between 35 and 45 kilometers per hour, with gusts reaching up to 55 kilometers per hour. By Thursday, May 23, the wind speed could increase to 60 kilometers per hour, causing significant agitation in the sea. The following day, wind speeds might escalate to 70 kilometers per hour.

Despite the low-pressure system being far from the Bangladesh coast and closer to the Tamil Nadu and Andhra coasts, no warnings have been issued for fishing trawlers and boats in Bangladesh.

The weather forecast for the next three days indicates that on Thursday, there might be temporary rain or thundershowers accompanied by gusty winds in a few places across Rangpur, Rajshahi, Dhaka, Mymensingh, Khulna, Barishal, Chattogram, and Sylhet divisions.

A mild heatwave is currently affecting Madaripur, Gopalganj, Sylhet, Chattogram, Rangamati, Chandpur, Noakhali, Feni, Bandarban, Khulna, Mongla, Satkhira, Chuadanga, Khepupara, and Bhola districts, and it may continue.

Day and night temperatures across the country might increase slightly, and due to high humidity levels, discomfort might rise.

On Friday, there could be temporary rain or thundershowers with gusty winds in a few places in Dhaka, Barishal, Chattogram, and Sylhet divisions. The rest of the country might experience partly cloudy skies with mainly dry weather.

Day and night temperatures are likely to remain nearly unchanged across the country, although high humidity levels might cause discomfort.

On Saturday, May 25, many areas in Khulna, Barishal, and Chattogram divisions and some areas in Dhaka and Sylhet divisions might experience temporary rain or thundershowers with gusty winds. The rest of the country might have partly cloudy skies with mainly dry weather.

Daytime temperatures might drop by 1-2 degrees Celsius, while nighttime temperatures are expected to remain nearly unchanged. High humidity levels might continue to cause discomfort.

In the extended five-day forecast, there is a possibility of increased rainfall.

Another forecast indicates that regions including Rangpur, Dinajpur, Rajshahi, Pabna, Bogura, and Mymensingh might experience temporary gusty or squally winds from the west/northwest at speeds of 45-60 kilometers per hour, accompanied by rain or thundershowers. River ports in these areas have been advised to hoist cautionary signal number one.
