TROPICAL SYSTEM FORMATION ALERT | 16-20 DEC 2021

TROPICAL SYSTEM FORMATION ALERT

DATE: 15TH DECEMBER 2021 | TIME: 6:30PM BST (+6 GMT)
SUB: TROPICAL DEVELOPMENT | PERIOD: 16-20 DECEMBER 2021

(A) Under the influence of an Upper Air Circulation, a Low Pressure Area could form over Southwest Bay of Bengal by 16-17 December 2021.
It could intensify into a Well Marked LPA & then into a Tropical Depression (≥45kph) between 18-20 December over South West adjoining SE Bay of Bengal. Then it could be more marked by moving ENE/Eastward.
.
▪️Overall confidence in the forecast is high as a Disturbance is present over South West Bay of Bengal & adjoining areas.
But MJO signal found between Phase 6-7 with Robust Amplitude(≤2) & it is likely to interfere destructively with low frequency La Nina base state over West Pacific & weaken subsequently.
Which is not supportive for Tropical development over Bay of Bengal.
While, Sea Surface Temperature is favourable(28-30°C) over most parts of Southern Bay of Bengal, which is conductive for the development process.
.
Wind shear is currently Low (⬇️) over the development area & decent outflow aloft along with potentially favourable parameters. And this combination is likely to sustain during the whole forecast period with a slight deviation.
.
That’s why, It is having chances to intensify into a Depression.
•Max intensity is dependent on the track & future condition of the Bay of Bengal which is skeptical right now.


Thus, The disturbance, Low VWS, Outflow & other favourable parameters are leading High confidence in this forecast.
.
(B) A pulse/disturbance could emerge into southern Andaman sea by 18/19 dec.
Due to High shear, it might not intensify.

★See the Graphic to see visually the development areas & rainfall activity associated with the system track.
.
LANDFALL & MAX INTENSITY:-
Landfall Probability is skeptical right now & there is a possibility of dissipation over open water of South Andaman Sea.
If not, then it might cross southern Thailand by 23/24th December as a weakening System.
.
•The forecast track is based on the present data analysis & may not remain consistent if any change appears in the future data.

Max intensity is skeptical right now & anticipated with the track & future condition of the Bay of Bengal.
.
⚠️Effects:-
Due to the partial effect of the system, Eastern Sri Lanka could have moderate to heavy rain along with isolated heavy to very heavy rain between 16-19 December 2021.
Andaman island could have heavy to very heavy rain after 20/21st Dec.
.
