Maritime ports asked to lower cautionary signal04 August 2022
UNB, Dhaka :
Maritime ports of Chattogram, Cox’s Bazar, Mongla and Payra have been advised to lower the cautionary signal as squally weather is unlikely over the ports, the weather department said on Thursday.
Squally weather is also unlikely over the North Bay and adjoining coastal areas of Bangladesh. However, all fishing boats and trawlers over in the North Bay and the deep sea have been advised to proceed with caution till further notice.
On Wednesday, the met office advised the country’s maritime ports to hoist local cautionary signal three to alert vessels of a possible squall as a deep convection was taking place over the North Bay.
Deep convection refers to the thermally driven turbulent mixing that moves air parcels from the lower to the upper atmosphere.
