Kai Tak to drench Andaman and Nicobar Islands during Christmas

Posted on: 22/Dec/2017 3:05:10 PM
Storm Kai Tak continues to linger in the South China Sea close to the Malay Peninsula. The system has now become a depression and in the next 24 hours, is expected to hit the Malay Peninsula giving heavy rains over the region.

Thereafter, the system will weaken further due to its contact with landmass. Also, the system will also move towards the Andaman Sea around December 24 and 25 which will result in heavy rains over the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

Now, another system has come up in the Pacific Ocean and has become a Tropical Storm named Tembin. The system will follow a similar track and is headed towards Philippines. This system is stronger than Kai Tak and has the potential of intensifying into a Cat 1 storm as well.

However, due to the presence of this system in proximity of Kai Tak, the possibility of Kai Tak intensifying further are quite bleak. This means that Kai Tak may not move further than the Andaman Sea and dissipate there itself.

Meanwhile, hefty rains are expected over North Andaman and Nicobar Islands while moderate rains are likely over the southern parts of the Islands.
