The apparent light pressure in the southeastern Bay of Bengal and the adjoining South Andaman Sea area has intensified and turned into the low pressure in the same area.
For this reason, Chittagong, Cox’s Bazar, Mongla and Payra seaports have been asked to display a remote warning signal number 1.
Meanwhile, the Weather Department has hinted that the temperature may decrease from Wednesday if the low pressure created in the Bay of Bengal is cut off.
According to a special notification issued by the Meteorological Department on Sunday, the low was 1380 km south of Chittagong seaport, 1295 km south of Cox’s Bazar seaport, 1440 km south-southeast of Mongla seaport, and 1375 km south-southeast of Payra seaport. It may become more concentrated and move north/northeast.
Fishing boats and trawlers stationed in the North Bay have been asked to move cautiously near the coast. At the same time, they have been told not to wander in the deep sea.
The low pressure in the sea could turn into a cyclone after it turns into a deep depression on Monday. However, meteorologists do not see the possibility of it hitting Bangladesh.
