Cyclone Akash quickly crossed into Bangladesh coast and fizzled out. Now there seems to be a few days of lull in the Bay.

The temperatures over a larger part of the sub continent are almost at normal levels since the last couple of days, with a few hot spots today like Jacobabad at 49°, Nawabshah and Sibi at 46° andHissar at 45°. The sea level pressure is falling over central India and adjoining Pakistan, and is now at 995mb.

Strong winds are now blowing south to north off the Somali coast, portending quick cloudiness in the Arabian Sea. The ECMWF has forecasted the formation of a low in the central Arabian Sea on the 22nd. of May. It also projects the same low becoming stronger (maybe a deep depression) by the 24th. and crossing the North Maharashtra coast on the 25th. But this needs daily watching, for even though the wind and sea temperatures support such a formation, the actuality may be different.
