South China Sea likely to spin up another typhoon heading to Vietnam

The rainmaker system over Andhra Pradesh and Odisha weakened considerably on Monday.

It has been pushed out back into the Bay of Bengal, where it is forecast to weaken further, an update by the Met Department said.


Calm weather may now settle largely over peninsular India, the playground for the North-East Monsoon, during the rest of the week. Southern Kerala and adjoining Tamil Nadu could be the only exception.

The European Centre for Medium Weather Forecasts is of the view that activity may again start building over South China Sea from next week.

A tropical cyclone (typhoon) is forecast to spin up over here and head towards Vietnam for landfall. Some buzz is expected to be created over the Bay of Bengal too which lies next door to its west.

Forecasts indicate that many parts of South Peninsula might witness rains on either side of Diwali.


Meanwhile, both maximum and minimum temperatures are expected to fall over North India over the next three days as winter chill gradually sets in.

This will come about as the warmth provided by a concurrent moisture-laden western disturbance lifts as the system moves away to the east. In its place, Arctic cold air from across the border will waft in to fill the air.

The western disturbance will also bring in some snow and rain to the higher reaches Jammu and Kashmir, the Met Department said.


In other forecasts, it said rain or thundershowers may break out at a few places over coastal Andhra Pradesh on Tuesday and taper off.

A similar forecast has been made for regions in the south as well with parts of Tamil Nadu, Lakshadweep, coastal and south interior Karnataka and Kerala expected to receive showers during the next two days.

Rain or thundershowers are likely at isolated places over sub-Himalayan West Bengal, Sikkim, Odisha, South Chhattisgarh, South Konkan and Goa on Tuesday.
