Warning for Fishermen

The Central Bay of Bengal, which borders the North Bay of Bengal, is extremely likely to experience squally weather (wind speeds of 40–45 kmph with gusts to 55 kmph).

Over the southwest and adjoining west-central Arabian Sea, west-central neighboring east-central Bay of Bengal, and south of northeast Bay of Bengal, squally winds of 45-55 kmph with gusting to 65 kmph are likely. Therefore, it is advised that fishermen avoid diving too deep into these waters.
