Tropical Cyclone Activity Report – Pacific / Indian Oceans
December 8, 2015

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

PDC Global Hazards Atlas displaying 3-hour precipitation accumulation

PDC Global Hazards Atlas displaying 3-hour precipitation accumulation


There continues to be an area of disturbed weather being referred to as Invest 97S in the South Indian Ocean, circled in yellow above…that has a low chance of developing

Here’s what the computer models are showing

This disturbed area was located about 195 NM south-southwest of Diego Garcia

According to the JTWC, satellite imagery shows a broad and elongated low level circulation center, with broken convective cloud banding along the southern periphery.

Microwave imagery shows limited structural improvement over the past 24 hours.

Upper level analysis shows a marginal environment, with moderate 20-25 knot wind shear…being partially offset by good dual channel outflow.

Sea surface temperatures within the region are favorably warm…conducive for further development.

Dynamic weather guidance indicates gradual development as the system tracks southwest into an area of lower wind shear.

Maximum surface winds are estimated to be 15-20 knots

The potential for the development of a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours remains low
