Boats and trawlers over the North Bay have been advised to remain close to the coast

Maritime ports of Chittagong, Cox’s Bazar, Mongla and Payra have been advised to hoist a local cautionary signal number 3.

The warning has been issued as a steep pressure gradient is persisting over the North Bay and adjoining coastal areas due to the influence of deep convection. 

“Under its influence, steep pressure gradient persists over North Bay and adjoining coastal areas and deep convection is taking place over North Bay. Squally weather is likely to affect the maritime ports, North Bay and adjoining coastal areas of Bangladesh”, said a Met office warning issued on Thursday. 

All fishing boats and trawlers over the North Bay have been advised to remain close to the coast and proceed with caution till further notice.
