September Cyclone in Bay of Bengal rare but not unexpected

According to a report in The Weather Channel, while post-monsoon cyclones are common across the North Indian Ocean basin, Gulab’s formation even when the monsoon is still active across India is a rare occurence. It is only the third such cyclone in this time of the year in the entire century. This is rare because during September, the temperature across the Bay of Bengal is relatively low and the wind shear is not favourable for a low pressure area to progress into a cyclonic storm. However, experts say that it’s not unexpected!

“Bay of Bengal is a hotbed for cyclones. Typically, cyclones in the Bay form in the first or second week of October. But, given the shift in climate patterns, it is not surprising to see cyclones during late September,” says Dr Sridhar Balasubramanian, an Associate Professor at IIT Bombay, where he also holds an adjunct faculty position in the IDP Climate Studies Centre.
