Western North Pacific
North Indian OceanTropical Cyclone 05B (Burevi) Here’s what the computer models are showing According to the JTWC, upper level analysis indicates a marginally favorable environment with warm sea surface temperatures and supportive equatorward and poleward outflow aloft, offset by moderate15-20 knot wind shear. TC 05B will make a second landfall along the southern coast of India. Continued moderate wind shear and interaction with the underlying terrain will lead to a gradual weakening to 20 knots, while tracking once again over water after entering the Arabian Sea. The storm is then expected to move through an increasingly favorable environment for intensification. Decreasing wind shear coupled with improved upper level outflow and warm sea surface temperatures will lead to a gradual intensification to 45 knots by 120 hours.
South Indian Ocean
There’s a tropical disturbance being referred to as Invest 95S, which is located approximately 715 NM east of Diego Garcia…in the South Indian Ocean Here’s what the computer models are showing According to the JTWC, satellite imagery shows a slowly consolidating, although poorly defined low level circulation center with deep convection in the western periphery. Invest 95S is currently in a moderately favorable environment with good equatorward outflow and warm sea surface temperatures…offset by moderate 15-25 knot wind shear. Global models are in good agreement that 95S will track generally south-southwestward, with steady intensification over the next 24 hours. Maximum sustained surface winds are estimated at 15-20 knots. The potential for the development of a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours remains medium.
