The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has informed that the remnants of Cyclone Gulab are likely to intensify into a cyclonic storm on October 1. The remnants of the cyclone are likely to enter the Arabian Sea on 30, intensify on October 1 and then move towards Pakistan, they said.
On Wednesday morning, a low-pressure area- a remnant of Cyclone Gulab- was formed over the south Gujarat region and adjoining Gulf of Khambhat. "It is very likely to move west-northwestwards, emerge into northeast Arabian Sea and intensify into a depression by tomorrow (September 30). Then it is very likely to move further west-northwestwards and intensify into a cyclonic storm during the subsequent 24 hours (October 1). Thereafter, it is likely to continue to move west-northwestwards towards Pakistan Makran coasts, moving away from the Indian coast," the IMD said.
Light to moderate rainfall is expected at most places, with heavy to very heavy falls at a few other places and extremely heavy falls over Saurashtra and Kutch in Gujarat. Heavy, very heavy and extremely heavy falls are predicted over the Gujarat region, Daman, Diu, Dadra and Nagar Haveli. Isolated places over north Konkan are also expected to receive heavy to very heavy falls.
