The tropical cyclone Biparjoy in the Arabian Sea has intensified and is now regarded as a Severe Cyclonic Storm (SCS), according to the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD).

Fortunately, none of the nation’s coastal regions are currently in immediate danger.

According to the PMD, “The Cyclonic Storm (CS) ‘BIPARJOY’ has moved northward over the past 12 hours, intensified into a Severe Cyclonic Storm (SCS), and is now located near Latitude 12.8°N & Longitude 66.1°E, approximately 1160 km south of Karachi.”

According to the Met Office, the cyclone’s center is experiencing maximum sustained surface winds of 90 to 100 km/h, with gusts as high as 120 km/h.

The cyclone is anticipated to strengthen into a Very Severe Cyclonic Storm (VSCS) later today as a result of favorable environmental factors like high sea surface temperatures of 30°C to 32°C, low vertical wind shear, and upper-level divergence. As stated by the PMD, it will keep moving in a north/northwest direction.

The system is being closely watched by the PMD’s cyclone warning center in Karachi, which will provide more updates as needed.

The PMD issued an alert yesterday regarding the potential development of a tropical cyclone in the Southeast Arabian Sea.

The PMD issued an alert that reads, “The low-pressure area (LPA) over Southeast Arabian Sea has intensified into a Depression (strong LPA) and is located near Latitude 11.5 N & Longitude 66.0 E, approximately 1,500 km south of Karachi.”
