Tropical cyclone may develop over Sri Lanka this week

leave a comment »

The Indian Department of Meteorology has hinted at the possibility of tropical cyclone development over the southwest Bay around Sri Lanka during November 10 to 16 under the combined impact of the eastward movement of the enhanced precipitation zone from west to east and above-average sea-surface temperatures over equatorial Indian Ocean.

This is in turn attributed to the strong MJO (Madden-Julian Oscillation) wave over the equatorial Indian Ocean, a periodical upper air wave transiting from the west to the east and which magnifies weather happening under its foot print. (Hindu Busines)
