The Deep Depression in Bay of Bengal is now under a sustained attack of Dry Air which is influencing its development.  One can notice the low moisture content seeping into the system in the video as blue colours envelopes the system. Already under the effect of Moderate Shear its going to be seriously handicapped over the next day or two as it winds up towards the Indian Coast moving along in a Westerly Direction. We might end up with a case of the system only reaching peak intensity of Deep Depression and not a Tropical Cyclone as per IMD standards. [Read More]

A Low Pressure Area has formed over Bay of Bengal (not officially confirmed yet by IMD).  It has formed to the North West of what was expected to be the point of formation.  The point of genesis is very important for the development and life cycle of any Tropical System.  The current genesis point possibly puts the system under slightly unfavourable conditions compared to what could have been the conditions if it had formed closer to Andaman Islands. The system could possibly face moderate shear earlier in its life cycle possibly impacting its development.  Please find our analysis based on [Read More]

COMK Blog exclusively for the first time brings out a forecast for the Bay Disturbance which covers all aspects that govern the evolution of a cyclone in a seamless manner.  Just wait as the story evolves on its own through an animated GIF. Starting from where the Low Pressure Area might form we track the journey as how it gets steered through from Andaman Islands to possible landfall over the Eastern Coast of India.  During this journey we have tried to explain how High Pressure Areas (HPA), that play a vital role in the directions the cyclones take, to the [Read More]
