New Delhi (NVI): The super cyclonic storm “KYARR” over eastcentral Arabian Sea will weaken gradually from the evening of October 28 and it is likely to move west-north-westwards till October 30.

According to India Meteorological Department (IMD), “Cyclone Kyarr is likely to maintain the intensity of a Super Cyclonic Storm till today’s evening and weaken gradually thereafter.”

The development of fresh low-pressure area over Equatorial Indian Ocean to the south of Sri Lanka will be observed, IMD said in the statement.

The super cyclone Kyarr is very likely to move west-northwestwards till 30th October re-curve westsouthwestwards thereafter and move towards Gulf of Aden off south Oman-Yemen coasts during subsequent 3 days, the statement added.

However, the Sea condition will be phenomenal over eastcentral Arabian Sea around the system centre till October 30  and will improve gradually thereafter becoming very rough to high, according to IMD.

IMD said, “It is very likely to become well-marked low-pressure area over Comorin area during next 24 hours and very likely to concentrate into a depression over southeast Arabian Sea and adjoining Lakshadweep & Maldives area during subsequent 48 hours.”

“Under its influence, squally weather is likely over Comorin, Lakshadweep & Maldives area and adjoining southeast Arabian Sea from 29th October onwards till October 31st,” IMD added.

The IMD has issued warning to the fishermen to not to venture into sea along and off south Tamil Nadu & Kerala coasts, and also into Comorin, Lakshadweep & Maldives area and adjoining southeast Arabian Sea between October 29-31.

It is the first super cyclone after cyclone Gonu in June 2007 over the Arabian Sea. However, SuCS Gonu weakened over the sea and crossed Oman coast as a very severe cyclonic storm, said IMD.
