But it did not happen yesterday. There is no guarantee that today will be Friday. Meteorologists say that is the type of weather. Something can be said with 100% certainty. Just talk about the possibilities.
A special bulletin from the Flood Forecasting and Warning Center for Cyclone Amphan said a low pressure area could form near the South Andaman Sea and the Nicobar Islands around April 30. In the next 48 hours, that is, on Saturday, it could turn into a cyclone. It could hit the Cox’s Bazar-Chittagong coast between Myanmar and Bangladesh between May 3 and 5.
Heavy rains are likely in Chittagong and Barisal divisions of Bangladesh from May 5 to 7 due to cyclone Amphan. At the same time, there may be higher tidal water than usual. Other parts of the country may also receive moderate to heavy rains.
Shahinul Islam, a meteorologist at the Meteorological Department, said rain could increase on Friday. And a depression could form in the Andaman Sea between Friday and Saturday. It has all the signs of turning into a cyclone.
