It is likely to intensify further into a deep depression, then into a cyclonic storm, and move in a northwesterly direction.

The maximum sustained wind speed within 44km of the depression centre is about 40km/h rising to 50km/h gusts or squalls while the sea will remain moderate.

Maritime ports of Chittagong, Cox’s Bazar, Mongla, and Payra have been advised to keep hoisted distant cautionary signal number one.
