 The National Meteorological centre in  Aden announced that cyclone Vayu which formed in the southeast of the Arabian Sea is likely to develop into a tropical storm within the next few hours.

The cyclone which is expected to slam along the western Indian coasts and north-west towards Pakistan, as well as the Omani coast, will carry damaging winds and flood rain.

Vayu will continue to strengthen its momentum over the warm waters of the Arabian Sea through midweek.

It is possible that Vayu will intensify into a very severe cyclonic storm (the equivalent of a strong Category 1 or Category 2 hurricane).

The  National Meteorological Center in Aden warned that there are strong southwest monsoon winds moving at the speed of 35 knots in some areas off the coast of Mahra, Hadramawt, Socotra and Gulf of Aden.

The centre noted that there is a heat wave coming from the Arabian Peninsula passing through ‘Al Robe’ Al Khali’ affecting our country.
It is expected that it will increase the level of heat above its normal rate of 3-5 degrees.

The National Meteorological Center warned fishermen in Aden coasts to take precautions and warned the public to avoid swimming.
