Tropical Cyclone Activity Report – Pacific / Indian Oceans
December 23, 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...and an area of tropical disturbance with a low chance of developing into a tropical cyclone during the next 24 hours.

PDC Global Hazards Atlas displaying 3-hour precipitation accumulation…and an area of tropical disturbance with a low chance of developing into a tropical cyclone during the next 24 hours.

However, an area of disturbed weather in the South Indian Ocean has persisted…known as Invest 99P

Here is a satellite image of the area–and what the computer models are showing.

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

Eastern North Pacific

The eastern Pacific hurricane season officially ended on November 30. Therefore, the last regularly scheduled tropical weather outlook of the 2015 hurricane season has occurred. Routine issuance of the tropical weather outlook will resume on May 15, 2016. During the off-season, special tropical weather outlooks will be issued as conditions warrant.The Pacific Disaster Center (PDC) will begin coverage of the eastern Pacific again on May 15, 2016.

Central North Pacific

The central north Pacific hurricane season officially ended on November 30. Therefore, the last regularly scheduled tropical weather outlook of the 2015 hurricane season has occurred. Routine issuance of the tropical weather outlook will resume on June 1, 2016. During the off-season, special tropical weather outlooks will be issued as conditions warrant.

JTWC Significant Tropical Weather Advisory for the South Indian Ocean (Issued Dec 23 2015 /18Z):

AN AREA OF CONVECTION HAS PERSISTED NEAR 13.4S 131.6E,
APPROXIMATELY 70 NM SOUTHEAST OF DARWIN, AUSTRALIA. A 231253Z METOPB
89 GHZ IMAGE SHOWS A STRONG, BUT LOOSELY ORGANIZED BAND OF
CONVECTIVE ACTIVITY ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A BROAD LOW-
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTERED OVER THE NORTHERN TERRITORY OF AUSTRALIA.
LOCAL RADAR AND OBSERVATIONS CONFIRM BROAD CYCLONIC TURNING, AND
UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS DEPICTS FAVORABLE CONDITIONS FOR DEVELOPMENT
WITH RADIAL OUTFLOW, SUPPORTED BY ANTICYCLONIC TURNING ALOFT, AND
LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. MODELS INDICATE THE SYSTEM WILL TRACK
GENERALLY EASTWARD OVER LAND IN THE NEAR-TERM, EMERGING OVER THE
GULF OF CARPENTARIA BY TAU 72. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE
ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED
TO BE NEAR 999 MB. BECAUSE THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION IS EXPECTED TO
REMAIN OVER LAND FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24
HOURS IS LOW.
