Two of three low-pressure areas to form early monsoon depressions


It is forecast that three low-pressure areas may happen, and two of them are likely to develop into depressions in the early monsoon season, according to the Department of Meteorology and Hydrology.
Storms that happened in pre-monsoon hit the Rakhine coast and the delta generally.
“It is forecast that low-pressure areas will happen three times in early monsoon season. Of three, two have the possibility of a storm. In late monsoon, three times of low-pressure area occurrence are forecast, and one has the possibility of a storm. Generally, storm in early monsoon happens on the Rakhine coast and the delta, based on data 30 years ago,” U Hla Tun, the department’s spokesperson, told The Global New Light of Myanmar (GNLM).
Storms in mid-monsoon typically head to India, but Myanmar needs to be alert, he said.
“In mid-monsoon, normally storms do not approach Myanmar, but they head to India. Monsoons are strong in the mid-monsoon season, so rain is high in the coastal areas. However, storms in late monsoons should be cautious, especially in Myanmar’s coastal areas, because storms happen early, and late monsoons usually approach Myanmar’s coastal areas. It is the possibility of the storm track,” said U Hla Tun. In May and June, there is the possibility of thunderstorms as a result of cumulonimbus clouds, which are possible to happen, he said.
According to the weather forecast on 10 May, cumulonimbus clouds are happening in Nay Pyi Taw, upper Sagaing Region, Taninthayi Region, Kachin State, Shan State, Kayin State and Mon State, and forecast weather conditions include strong wind, torrential rain, lightning, thunderbolt and hailstorm, along with rain, along the areas where cumulonimbus clouds move, the department announced. — Thit Taw/ZS
