As of early Saturday morning, EDT, there are no tropical cyclones in the Indian Ocean, but we are monitoring an area of low pressure located in the northern Bay of Bengal. This low pressure will produce areas of heavy rain across northeastern India and Bangladesh over the next 24 hours. Despite the favorable warm waters in the Bay of Bengal, wind shear will likely inhibit development of this system. At this time, the chance for tropical development is low before the low pressure moves onshore over northeastern India later Saturday, local time.
