Tropical Cyclone Activity Report – Pacific / Indian Oceans
March 14, 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 98P, in the Gulf of Carpenteria, circled in yellow above…which has a low chance of developing

This tropical disturbance was located about 55 NM west of Mornington Island, Australia, here’s a satellite image…and a near real time wind profile – and what the computer models are showing / Here’s the looping radar image from Mornington Island

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), satellite imagery show a fully exposed low level circulation center, and disorganized flaring convection.

In addition, images also show a symmetrical cloud signature, and morningstar Island observations indicate a two millibar, 24 hour air pressure fall…indicating a strengthening trend.

Upper level analysis shows a favorable environment, with moderate poleward outflow, and strong equatorward outflow. However, wind shear values are less favorable, at 15-20 knots.

Weather models indicate the low level center, currently over land, will move over the warm waters of the Gulf of Carpenteria within the next two days.

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

Finally, there’s another area of disturbed weather, being referred to as Invest 99S, in the South Indian Ocean, circled in yellow above…which has a low chance of developing

This tropical disturbance was located about 550 NM west of Cocos Island, Australia, here’s a satellite image…and what the computer models are showing

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), satellite imagery depicts central convection developing over a broad low level circulation center…with associated shallow convective cloud banding evident.

A partial windscat  pass indicates 15-20 knot winds wrapping into the center.

Upper level analysis shows a favorable environment, with good divergence aloft, and low 5-10 knot wind shear.

Sea surface temperatures are warm enough to support development.

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


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. 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. Here’s the 2015 hurricane season summary

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.
