Maritime ports of Chattogram, Cox's Bazar, Mongla, and Payra were advised to hoist local cautionary signal number 3 due to the light over the northeastern Bay of Bengal and adjoining areas. Sea is rough.

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

According to a forecast of the Bangladesh Meteorological Department, strong winds could blow over the coastal areas and seaports over the North Bay and adjoining areas.

On the other hand, due to late monsoon, heavy to very heavy rains forecasted over Rajshahi, Rangpur, Mymensingh, Sylhet and Chattogram divisions in the next 24 hours.
