Cyclone Biparjoy Intensifies, IMD Issues Warning: Latest Updates

Impact of Cyclone Biparjoy on India

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a warning as Cyclone Biparjoy rapidly develops into a severe cyclonic storm and is expected to further intensify over the next 48 hours. According to the IMD, the cyclone is projected to move in a north-northwest direction in the coming three days. However, no significant impact on the countries bordering the Arabian Sea, including India, Oman, Iran, and Pakistan, has been predicted at this stage.

Key Updates on Cyclone Biparjoy:

  1. IMD Bulletin: As per the IMD’s bulletin released on Wednesday night, Cyclone Biparjoy is currently situated over the east-central and southeast Arabian Sea, approximately 870 km west-southwest of Goa and 930 km southwest of Mumbai. The storm has undergone rapid intensification, transforming from a cyclonic circulation to a severe cyclonic storm within a span of just 48 hours.
  2. Sustained Intensity: Forecasts indicate that the atmospheric conditions and cloud mass suggest the system will maintain the strength of a very severe cyclone until June 12.
  3. Preparedness Measures: With the cyclone now classified as a severe cyclonic storm and centered around 1,060 km southwest of Gujarat’s Porbandar district, the state government has assured its readiness to tackle potential natural disasters.
  4. Warning for Fishermen: The IMD has issued a warning to fishermen along Karnataka’s coast, advising them not to venture into the Arabian Sea due to dangerous weather conditions and rough seas until further notice.
  5. High Waves: The Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS) has forecasted high waves ranging from 2.3 to 3.2 meters along the coast from Mangaluru to Karwar.

Impact of Cyclone Biparjoy on India:

The IMD is expected to announce the onset of the monsoon over Kerala within the next 48 hours, albeit with weakened intensity due to Cyclone Biparjoy. The latest meteorological features associated with the monsoon onset show the persistence of westerly winds over the south Arabian Sea, an increase in the depth of westerly winds up to middle tropospheric levels, and an increase in cloudiness over the regions encompassing the southeast Arabian Sea, Lakshadweep, and Kerala coasts. These conditions indicate favorable circumstances for the monsoon’s arrival over Kerala in the next 48 hours, as per IMD’s bulletin released on Wednesday.
