Chittagong, Cox's Bazar and Mongla seaports have been asked to hoist local cautionary signal no. 3 due to a low surfacing over the north Bay of Bengal and areas close by, the meteorological department said on Saturday.

"The low formed at 10am and has gradually intensified and after proceeding toward north-northwest it turned into a clear low," forecast officer Md Rasheduzzaman of the met office said.

"Under its impact stormy weather may blow over the north Bay. So the seaports have been asked to show cautionary signal no 3."

All fishing trawlers and water vessels staying in the deep sea has been advised to move near the coast.

The forecast officer said the low might gradually transform into a land law.

The weather warning bulletin said the low staying over the north Bay and adjoining areas further intensified and turned into a clear low on the northwest Bay and the coast of adjoining Orissa and West Bengal.

It was proceeding further toward north northwest and pressure 'gradient' was existing, the bulletin said.
