Trail of clouds which has been formed over Arabian Sea is likely to move towards Gulf of Eden, a senior official of the Indian Meteorological Department official said on Wednesday.
He also said that if it moves towards that direction, then chances are there that several areas in Yemen will receive heavy rainfall while southern Oman will get sporadic showers in the first week of June. "This also means that the monsoon in India can be delayed. Normally we see these clouds thrashing Kerala, India coast in India on June 1 but with this movement, India may have to wait for some more days," he said.
He also said that such types of system has delayed monsoon in India in the past also when these clouds took away monsoon moisture and clouds away from Kerala coast just on the eve of the normal date of June 1.
Meanwhile the Directorate General of Meteorology and Air Navigation (DGMAN), Oman, clarified that there is nothing to worry. "No cyclone has developed over Arabian Sea and the links of several websites which is going viral is unconfirmed.
The DGMAN has urged citizens and residents to follow official forecasts to receive information about weather.
