Weather: Cyclone Biparjoy Becomes Very Severe Cyclonic Storm, Fishermen Warned

Cyclone Biparjoy has become a Very Severe Cyclonic Storm during the evening hours of Wednesday. As far as the track of the storm is concerned, it is going to initially move northward, thereafter taking a northwestward path.

Skymet Weather said the system is expected to remain a very severe Cyclonic Storm for the next three to four days. Since the storm has a long sea travel, it may intensify further as well due to favourable conditions.

As cyclone 'Biparjoy' intensifies into a severe cyclonic storm and remains centred around 1,060 km south-west of Gujarat's coastal district of Porbandar, the state government on Wednesday said it was fully prepared to deal with possible natural calamities.

Fishermen warned 

The storm is likely to cause wind gusts of 40 to 50 kmph in coastal districts of Gujarat in the coming days and also bring light rains in parts of the state. The cyclone is likely to cause light rains in Saurashtra and south Gujarat regions between June 9 and 11, an IMD official said. Fishermen in Gujarat have been warned not to venture into the Arabian sea till June 14.

As the storm remains far away from the coastline, in deep waters, the West Coast of India remains free from any significant weather activity or any kind of threat from the Cyclone.

Favourable conditions for Monsoon's entry in Kerala

Meanwhile, according to the most recent update from the Indian Meteorological Department, the monsoon might hit Kerala within the next 48 hours. The IMD anticipated that the monsoon will arrive in Kerala on June 4th, but the arrival of the monsoon was delayed. 

IMD said there are favourable conditions for entry of monsoons in Kerala,.The monsoon will advance in some other parts of the southern states.

Meanwhile, the weather department has warned of severe heat waves in parts of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana for next three days and the southwest monsoon will likely enter two Telugu states in the second or third week. On the other hand, due to the onset of monsoon, there is a possibility of thunder and lightening rains in the Telugu state for the next three days.
