Consequences followed by a cyclone

as a cyclone is formed in the region of low pressure due to high temperatures. In the same case, the Arabian Sea has been highly warmed, and as a consequence, a disturbance has formed over the region, which has been moving towards the coast. After touching the coast, the following cycle will vanish and get down as it meets the coastline of the subcontinent.

Following the same pattern, there can be heavy bursts of rain and gusty winds in the region. The Indian Meteorological Department has also issued a warning, mentioning the burst of heavy rain and gusty winds that will be followed as the cyclone meets the coast.

Cyclone formation in the Arabian Sea

Cyclone formation is a geological process. It happens as the temperature rises and the pressure drops. It is the strong wind system that is formed over the area of low pressure. These types of cyclones are also known as tropical disturbances,” as they are formed in the region between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn.

They tend to move towards the coast, and once they meet the coast of the cyclone, They vanish and lead to heavy rainfall over the region, followed by strong gusty winds. The processes of cyclone formation and vanishing are all natural, but sometimes they can be dangerous for both life and property.

India, on average, receives six such tropical disturbances in a year. They are mostly in the Bay of Bengal but rarely occur in the Arabian Sea. For example, out of these six tropical disturbances over the year, Only one can be in the Arabian Sea; the rest can be in the Bay of Bengal. The Arabian Sea’s rising temperature and the formation of a low pressure zone there have resulted in the formation of more tropical disturbances than usual.
