HinduBusinessLine) As predicted, a tropical depression has sprung up over
north-west Pacific with forecasts favouring its intensification into a powerful
typhoon (cyclone) early next week.
Being the most prominent
feature in the larger Asian monsoon system, the brewing typhoon would
expectedly have a drag effect on the Indian monsoon as well.
Global models assess that
the depression would go on to become a Category-3 storm on the five-step
Saffir-Simpson scale for storm intensity by Monday (July 7).
This is the maximum
strength that the typhoon would be able to rustle up; it is forecast to wind
down in strength over the two days that follow.
The monsoon rain in India,
which is making a delayed entry into North-West India, is shown as taking a hit
from the typhoon.
The rains may start to dry
up as early as from Sunday, starting from Rajasthan and Gujarat and
progressively from west Madhya Pradesh.
