The cyclone over southwest Bay of Bengal moved west-northwestwards and lay centered about 110 km nearly east-northeast of Trincomalee (Sri Lanka), 330 km east-southeast of Pamban (India) and 520 km east-northeast of Kanniyakumari (India). It is very likely to move west-northwestwards and cross Sri Lanka coast during evening/night of December 2 as a Cyclonic Storm with a wind speed of 80-90 kmph gusting to 100 kmph.

It is very likely to move nearly west-northwestwards thereafter, emerge into Gulf of Mannar and adjoining Comorin area on December 3 morning. The Cyclonic Storm with wind speed of 70-80 gusting to 90 kmph would be centered very close to Pamban around noon of December 3.

It would then move nearly west-southwestwards across Pamban area by afternoon and cross south Tamilnadu coast between Pamban and
Kanniyakumari during December 3 night and December 4 early morning as a Cyclonic Storm with wind speed of 70-80 gusting to 90
kmph. Thus its impact on south Tamilnadu coastal districts is very likely to commence from December 3 forenoon initially over
Ramanathapuram district and gradually towards Kanniyakumari district.
