Tropical Cyclone 01B is active in the Bay of Bengal…located about 103 NM northeast of Chennai, India

Tropical Cyclone 01B has spun up in the Bay of Bengal, soon taking on a northeasterly track…remaining offshore from India

Here’s a satellite image of this tropical cyclone, and a near real time wind profile…and what the computer models are showing

Tropical cyclone 01B is located about 103 NM northeast of Chennai, India, moving northward at near 5 knots over the past 6-hours.

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), satellite imagery depicts broad and deep curved cloud banding is wrapping into a consolidating low level circulation center. In addition, there’s a large spiral band of intense convection stretching nearly 350 NM along the northern periphery of the system…as well as a reasonably well defined center.

Current environmental conditions are favorable for further development, with robust radial outflow, moderate 20 knot wind shear…and warm sea water temperatures.

TC 01B is expected to turn northeastward over the next 12 hours. Continued favorable conditions should allow the system to intensify over the next 24-36 hours, with a peak strength between 50-60 knots.

Beyond 48 hours, this system will pass over lower sea water temperatures, which will lead to a dissipation trend over the northern Bay of Bengal…prior to landfall.

Maximum sustained winds as of the JTWC Warning #2 were 40 knots with gusts of 50 knots
