June 06, 2023

A low-pressure system present above the Arabian Sea is likely to turn into a cyclonic circulation in next 24 hours, the weather department said Tuesday. “A low-pressure area (LPA) has formed over the southeast Arabian Sea at around latitude 11.0 N & longitude 66.0 E at about 1,550km south/southwest of Karachi,” said Sindh Chief Meteorological Officer. “Due to favourable meteorological conditions, the system is likely to intensify further into a depression (strong LPA) and move initially in northwest direction,” he added. He said that the Met Office was closely monitoring the low-pressure area and currently none of the Pakistan coastal areas is under any threat. If the low-pressure area does concentrate into a cyclonic storm, it will be named Cyclone Biparjoy. It is pertinent to mention here that the name of the cyclone Biparjoy is given by Bangladesh.
