Tropical Cyclone Activity Report – Pacific / Indian Oceans
May 13, 2016

There are no active tropical cyclones in the Pacific and Indian Oceans…or adjacent seas

There is however an area of disturbed weather, being referred to as Invest 91B, circled in yellow above…which has a low chance of developing (the upper tropical disturbance)

This tropical disturbance was located about 380 NM east of Colombo, Sri Lanka, here’s a satellite image…and a near real time wind profile – and what the computer models are showing

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), satellite imagery depicts a broad low level circulation center, enhanced by a strong westerly surge along the equator.

Microwave imagery shows the broad center with limited associated convection. The disturbance is in a favorable environment, with low 5-10 knot wind shear, good divergence aloft, and very warm sea surface temperatures.

Global models show further development in the next 2-3 days, as the system tracks northward.

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 is low

>>> In addition, there’s a second area of disturbed weather, being referred to as Invest 94S, circled in yellow above…which also has a low chance of developing (the lower tropical disturbance)

This tropical disturbance was located about 450 NM east of Diego Garcia, here’s a satellite image…and a near real time wind profile – and what the computer models are showing

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), satellite imagery shows a broad and elongated low level circulation center…with flaring central convection.

Microwave imagery shows a well defined but broad low level center. A previous satellite pass showed a strong 30 knot westerly wind burst along the equator, which is enhancing consolidation of the system. Analysis depicts a marginal environment with good divergent outflow…but with moderate to high wind shear.

Global models are conflicting on further development of this disturbance, as it tracks eastward…and then turns poleward.

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 is low
