>>> There’s an area of disturbed weather, being referred to as Invest 94S which is located approximately 545 NM north-northeast of Learmonth, Australia
Animated enhanced infrared satellite imagery depicts disorganized convection partially obscuring a weak llc
Environmental analysis indicates marginal conditions for development defined by low (10-15 knot) vertical wind shear and warm sea surface temperatures.
Global models are in agreement that invest 94S will have little to no development as it tracks southeastward over the next 24-48 hours.
Maximum sustained surface winds are estimated at 20 to 25 knots.
The potential for the development of a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours remains low.
