Yangon, 18 June — The Department of Meteorology and Hydrology announced Thursday that a low pressure zone is persisting over the West Central Bay of Bengal, bringing strong winds and rough seas.
Due to the low pressure, squalls with rough seas can occur occasionally off and along Myanmar coasts, with surface wind speed reaching 40 miles per hour, the announcement said.
Meanwhile, the monsoon is strong to vigorous in the Andaman Sea and Bay of Bengal, the weather bureau said.
Rain or thundershowers will be isolated in lower Sagaing, Mandalay and Magway regions, scattered in Kayah State, fairly widespread in upper Sagaing and Bago regions, Shan State and widespread in the remaining regions and states.
Isolated heavy falls are likely in Yangon, Ayeyawady and Taninthayi regions, as well as Mon State, with an 80 percent degree of certainty, according to the DMH.
The weather bureau forecasts the monsoon to be strong next two days. GNLM
