Weather advisory for naval, fishing communities


A weather advisory has been issued for the equatorial Indian Ocean and adjoining parts of Southwest Bay of Bengal.

The Met Department says a low level disturbance there has developed into a low-pressure area and lies centred over the central parts of Southwest Bay of Bengal.

It is likely to move towards the Andaman Sea during next 24 hours.

On its impact, there can be very heavy showers or thundershowers, strong winds of between 40 and 60 kmph associated with very rough seas.

The Department requests naval and fishing communities not to venture into these sea areas until further notice.
