Tropical storm Amphan in Bay of Bengal

Date: 18 May 2020 Tags: Geography & Environment
  • A storm brewing in the Bay of Bengal is likely to be a significant one for India and Bangladesh next week. When this storm forms, it will be the first of the year for the Northern Indian Ocean and receive the name Amphan.
  • The sea surface temperatures in the region are very warm, providing ample fuel for Amphan to become the equivalent of a major hurricane. Forecast models have consistently shown the storm becoming quite strong.
  • This region of the world has two distinct tropical cyclone seasons - April to June and October to November. This marks the months immediately before and after the southwest Indian monsoon season. During the monsoon season upper level winds are not favourable for tropical cyclone development.
