Weather of Arabia - Weather forecasters at the Arab Weather Center said that the latest outputs of satellite images and regional meteorological stations indicate the development of a tropical depression over the waters of the Bay of Bengal into a tropical storm. The atmosphere revolves around the center of the storm in a regular movement, and according to the latest observations, the wind speed is now about 80 km / h, and the atmospheric pressure values are about 996 millibars, amid expectations of a further development of the tropical state to reach the level of a hurricane during the next 24 hours.
According to the latest outputs of computer numerical models and global monitoring centers, it is expected, God willing, that Tropical Storm Mocha will continue to move eastward over the waters of the Bay of Bengal during the next 24 hours, which will contribute to the withdrawal of more moisture through evaporation resulting from the high temperature of the water surface, and thus clouds are expected to gain Thunderstorms more powerful so that the tropical state develops into the first tropical cyclone of the year.
It is expected that the tropical system will continue to move after its development into a tropical cyclone towards the east, moving to the coast of Burma by the end of the week, and threatening those areas with heavy rains, strong winds and a very turbulent sea.
It is noteworthy that tropical cases are classified according to the surface wind speed around the center (according to the Saffir-Simpson scale). The classification reaches a tropical storm when the surface wind speed around the center reaches at least 34 knots, and at that time a name is given to it, as tropical cases began to be named in the north of the ocean. Indian in 2004, and the classification reaches a tropical cyclone if the surface wind speed around the center reaches at least 64 knots.
There is another measure to measure the intensity of the orbital states, using the Dvorak technique, which relies on satellite images to estimate the intensity of the orbital state.
