Cyclone Nisarga: In shorter than two weeks, when a severe storm hit West Bengal en route to Bangladesh, India was experiencing another storm in its west at this time. In power and strength, it would be weaker than the typhoon Amphan, which landed on the land of India on 20th May. In fact, it’s not even a full-fledged cyclone right now, just a ‘depression’ that’s likely to accentuate into a ‘deep depression’ by Tuesday morning, and eventually into a cyclone, after which it might be called Nisarga.
What Will Be The Direction Of Nisarga?
It points towards northern Maharashtra and southern Gujarat. It may hit the coast at Daman below Harihareshwar, South Mumbai and Gujarat in Raigad District on Wednesday. By that point, it’s likely to evolve into a Severe Cyclonic Storm, which, roughly stated, is of strength 2 on a 1-to-5 of the strength of cyclones that arise within the Indian Ocean.
What Will Be The Strength And Power of Nisarga?
The strength of storms is measured by the wind speed they create. Most of this will be associated with wind speeds at speeds of 95–105 kmph. Amphan, on the other hand, was classified as a quasi-hurricane of category 5, although in category 4, the “extreme strong cyclonic storm”, was destroyed during that time. Its top speed was 180 km/h.
The storms in the Bay of Bengal in the northern Indian Ocean are more frequent and stronger than in the Arabian Sea. Observers state that the turbulent waters of the Arabian Sea reflect a strong storm in the eastern part of the Bay of Bengal; Odisha and Andhra Pradesh face the brunt of these cyclones every year.
However, the situation changed slightly last year, as the Arabian Sea witnessed the highest and most violent temperatures, India Meteorological Department stated. In 2019, five tornadoes were created in the region – Vayu, Hikka, Kiyar, Maha, and Pavan – while only one or two were developed.
Is The Threat Too Big?
If the system evolves into a hurricane, other parts of the Maharashtra Coast will be on the path of prediction. Although the actual fall is yet to be determined, it may still be close to Mumbai. Thane, Raigad, Ratnagiri, and Sindhudurg could also be affected, with heavy or very heavy rain expected in these areas until June 4.
The monsoon of the south-west has already entered Kerala. There is a related concern lying along the coast, which intensifies moving north along the coast. In such conditions, areas of the east-central and south-eastern coast of the Arabian Sea are experiencing severe weather, which may increase as a result of this storm.
Will Maharashtra Receive Early Monsoon Rainfall?
No, the rainfall for the next three days in Maharashtra will not happen because of the south-west, which has not yet begun its journey north of Kerala. In fact, the monsoon arrives in Maharashtra after the 10th of June.
