The information is provided in weather forecasts reported till 6:00 pm on Wednesday. 

Md Bazlur Rashid, a meteorologist of the Meteorological Department confirmed the matter on Wednesday morning. 

“The low pressure, located in the Northwest Bay and adjoining areas, is currently located in the Gangetic West Bengal and adjoining Bangladesh coastal areas. As a result, monsoon is moderate to strong over North Bay,” he said. 

The low over Gangetic West Bengal and the adjoining area now lies over Jharkhand and adjoining Gangetic West Bengal. As a result, seaports of Chattogram, Cox’s Bazar, Mongla, and Payra have been asked to show the local cautionary signal no three.  

All the fishing boats and trawlers located in the North Bay have been advised to move cautiously along the coast until further instructions.
