Karachi: The Pakistan Metrological Department (PMD) said on Tuesday that Cyclone Biparjoy had traveled further north-northwestward during the previous 12 hours, and was now 460 kilometers distant from Thatta and 470 kilometers south of Karachi.
In order to retain its strength during the projected period, it was said that “beneficial environmental conditions” (sea surface temperatures between 29 and 31 °C, minimal vertical wind shear, and upper-level divergence) were in place.

The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) also noted on its official Twitter account that the cyclone’s prior rating of “extremely severe” had “weakened” into a “very severe cyclonic storm,” with a current speed of around 140-150 km/h.

Latitude 20.7° N and Longitude 67.1° E are close to where it is right now.

The authorities said that the system’s future evolution would only provide certainty regarding Biparjoy’s changing circumstances and effects.

According to the NDMA’s website, tropical cyclone Biparjoy “according to the latest forecast, is expected to maintain a northward trajectory until the morning of June 14, 2023, and then it is likely to recurve eastward and will make a landfall between Keti Bandar (Southeast Sindh Coastline) and the Indian Gujarat Coastline in the afternoon of June 15, 2023 as a Very Severe Cyclonic Storm (VSCS).”

Thatta, Badin, Sajawal, Tharparkar, Karachi, Mirpurkhas, Umerkot, Hyderabad, Ormara, Tando Allah Yar Khan, and Tando Mohammad Khan are among the places that might be impacted.
