Weather Apocalypse Alert! Unbelievable Cyclone ‘Tej’ to Strike Mumbai! Will India Survive the Fury?
Amidst the whims of Mother Nature, a spectacle of perplexity unfolds, echoing across the vast expanse of the Indian subcontinent. The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has forewarned of an imminent meteorological marvel, a symphony of rain, thunder, cyclonic storms, and snowfall poised to grace diverse regions. As we stand on the cusp of meteorological unpredictability, the whispers of the weather experts resonate with anticipation.
Intriguingly, the meteorologists have peered into the enigmatic depths of the Arabian Sea, where signs of a brewing cyclonic storm have been discerned. A mystical cyclonic circulation christened ‘Tej’ dances in the southeast Arabian Sea, embracing the neighbouring Lakshadweep region. This celestial choreography is expected to grace the city of Mumbai, casting its spell on the 22nd and 23rd of October, with a promise of chilling temperatures, as foretold by the sages of Mumbai’s meteorology.
Let’s embark on a voyage across the enigma of weather updates from the diverse corners of our land:
In the next 36 hours, a low-pressure realm will manifest over the southeast and the adjacent east-central Arabian Sea. As if influenced by cosmic forces, a cyclonic circulation is destined to pirouette in a west-northwestward direction, ultimately metamorphosing into a depression in the central Arabian Sea around the 21st of October.
Meanwhile, another celestial minstrel, a cyclonic circulation, will also waltz in the west-northwest direction, sprinkling its enchantment over the central realms of the Bay of Bengal near the 20th of October. Such is the notion of nature in this season – October to December, when the oceans wear their warmer veils, beckoning the development of cyclones in the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea.
The IMD, a weather oracle of sorts, augurs moderate rainfall, accompanied by the celestial orchestra of thunder and lightning, in select regions of Kerala. This divine spectacle, it predicts, will persist for five days, nurtured by the growing might of the cyclonic circulations, expected to attain their zenith by the 21st of October.
Meanwhile, in the peaceful heights of Himachal Pradesh, where the mountains touch the heavens, tribal areas and high passes have been gifted with a gentle embrace of snowfall. In 24 hours, culminating at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Narkanda and Kharapatthar in Shimla district bore witness to their maiden snowfall of the month. The echoes of joy reverberate through the icy peaks.
As we descend into the heart of our nation, Delhi, the weather chart spins a tale of unprecedented chill. The day unfolded with a high of 26.2 degrees Celsius, a staggering seven notches below the norm, marking the lowest maximum temperature recorded for October. Overnight showers transformed the night into an extraordinary haven, with the minimum temperature dipping to 17.2 degrees Celsius, two notches below the usual, offering a respite from the day’s warmth.
And so, as the elements weave their tales of chaos and grace, we stand amidst the symphony of perplexity, ready to embrace the mysteries of the meteorological world.
