Why more cyclones are forming in Arabian Sea?
Weathermen across the region are closely watching the movement of a "huge trail of clouds" that is passing over the Arabian Sea.
According to an update from Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), the Arabian Sea offshore trough (which brings heavy to moderate rainfall) is also expected to take shape slowly around May 29/30.
The clouds which are currently based away from the coast of Gulf of Aden may develop into a "low pressure" and then bring huge rainfall in Yemen. And if the system moves up, it is likely to bring rainfall in southern parts of Oman.
The Directorate General of Meteorology and Air Navigation (DGMAN), Oman, said that they are closely watching the weather through weather forecasts that are broadcast via state media on a daily basis. The DGMAN has urged citizens and residents to follow official forecasts to receive information about weather.
It also denied some social networking sites' claims about the presence of a cyclone in the Arabian Sea, affirming that a cyclone has not been scientifically proven as yet. "The presence of a cyclone in the Arabian Sea is completely mistaken as it has not been scientifically proven until now. There are no signs of a cyclone as yet," Dr Jumah bin Said Al Maskari, Assistant Director-General for Meteorology said in a statement.
