A LOW pressure area over the southwest Bay of Bengal off the Sri Lankan coast is expected to intensify into a depression within 24 hours, according the Department of Meteorology and Hydrology.
Yesterday’s 4pm announcement said the low pressure could move northwest when it becomes a depression.
The depression might cross the coast between Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, India, on 19 May, according to private weather forecaster Skymet.
At present, all three Indian seas, including the Indian Ocean, the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea, are turbulent, giving rise to several weather systems.
Rain is expected during the next 24 hours over some areas in Taninthayi, Sagaing, Mandalay, Magway, Bago, Kachin, Shan, Kayin, Chin, Rakhine, Kayah and Mon states and in Nay Pyi Taw with an 80 –per cent degree of certainty, the Myanmar weather bureau forecast said.
Yangon will be cloudy today, according to the weather bureau forecast.—GNLM
