A newly formed cyclonic storm and second brewing tropical threat will combine to threaten parts of Sri Lanka and India with flooding and mudslides in next week, The Accu Weather reported today.

Cyclonic Storm Ockhi developed near Sri Lanka yesterday and has produced rounds of heavy rainfall across the country and neighboring parts of southern India since early in the week.

A slow track to the west will take the cyclonic storm south of India before it turns northward and moves off the coast of western India into early next week. This track will result in daily downpours across Sri Lanka and southern India through at least Saturday.

The heaviest rain is expected across Sri Lanka and southern and central Tamil Nadu as well as southern Kerala in India.

There will be a high risk for local flash flooding along with an elevated risk for mudslides.

These areas will get generally less than 50 mm (2 inches) of rainfall through Sunday.
While this first tropical threat sits over the Arabian Sea early next week, a new threat will approach Sri Lanka and eastern India.

Tropical development is possible as early as Thursday or Friday near the Andaman and Nicobar islands in the Bay of Bengal.

This potential cyclone will then have an opportunity to organize further and strengthen as it crosses the southern Bay of Bengal this weekend.

Eastern India will be at risk for impacts from the tropical cyclone as early as Monday night, with areas from Tamil Nadu to Andhra Pradesh at highest risk for flooding and damaging winds.

    There was a warning from international weather reports for bad weather for Sri Lanka. Our Met Department released message in early this week by saying these reports are wrong and based on wrong calculations. Finally some innocent fisherman who have gone to see by trusting our met department reports had to scarify their lives. Action need to be taken against these officials.

    Punishing Ministers who make major blunders or Senior govt officials who cause blunders hardly ever happen in Sri Lanka

    Hope the social media won't give wrong precaution advise such as filling up fuel tanks, water, dry rations, medical kits, batteries etc. It's not the end of the world. Instead people should be advised to stay indoors , secure buildings of any loose structures , cut if not stay away from large trees in own garden etc.

    http://www.dailymirror.lk/article/Foreign-reports-of-SL-storm-threat-not-true-Met-141208.htmlThe Sri Lankan Meteorology Dept issued advice that despite other countries advising that a storm was coming, they said there was no storm. Absolutely terrible advice!!!

    Regarding to satellite weather maps, next cyclon will go North towards Myanmar, remain in ocean, slightly touch Chennai in the East coast of India and will not hit Sri Lanka.
