According to the MeT, the cyclone has weakened due to “unfavourable environmental conditions. Jayanta Sarkar, director of the MeT, was quoted as saying by PTI, “The system weakened mainly because of unfavourable environmental conditions, like high wind shear and colder sea surface near the coast. The system weakened because it is winter. The story would have been different had it occurred during the monsoon or pre-monsoon season.” Express Photo by Prashant Nadkar
