A low pressure area in Bay of Bengal is intensified into a depression and it will not be affected on Myanmar, sources said.
“The depression may enter India coast at night time. All clouds from upper Myanmar is gathering to form the depression and rain is not poured down much in upper Myanmar and Rakhine coast. Lower areas of Myanmar will have isolated heavy falls as monsoon wind is very strong in south Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea,” said Director General Dr Kyaw Moe Oo from Department of Meteorology and Hydrology (DMH).
According to observation made by the DMH on August 7, the low pressure area in Bay of Bengal is intensified into a depression and centered about 68 miles north-west of Chandbali, India and about 35 miles south-east of Balasore. It is classified as orange level as it is not heading to Myanmar.
Squalls with moderate seas are likely at times off and along Myanmar coasts. Surface wind speed in squalls may reach 40m.p.h.
