Tropical Cyclone Activity Report – Pacific / Indian Oceans
March 16, 2016

Tropical Cyclone 15S (Emeraude) remains active…located about 768 NM east-southeast of Diego Garcia  

Tropical Cyclone 16P is now dissipating…located about 236 NM west of Cairns, Australia – Final Warning

PDC Global Hazards Atlas displaying tropical cyclone Positions and Segments, and Estimated Winds (TAOS Model) layers for Tropical Cyclone 15S (Emeraude)

Tropical Cyclone 15S (Emeraude) is active in the south Indian Ocean…remaining away from land

Here’s a satellite image of this tropical cyclone…and a near real time wind profile (spinning clockwise in the southern hemisphere)…and what the computer models are showing

Tropical cyclone 15S is located about 768 NM east-southeast of Diego Garcia

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), satellite imagery depicts a compact, consolidating system, with a banding eye feature. In addition, imagery shows an increase in deep convection, wrapping into the low level circulation center.

TC Emeraude tracking slowly northwestward, in a very conducive environment…with low wind shear, strong dual channel outflow, and warm sea surface temperatures. These conditions will support a period of rapid intensification over the next 24-36 hours.

This tropical cyclone will continue to intensify through the next 48 hours, and then begin a slight weakening trend, as it encounters decreasing sea surface temperatures…and increasing wind shear aloft.

Weather models continue to struggle in the near term, as the system enters the competing steering environment. Beyond 36 hours, model guidance is in decent agreement on a general southeastward track.


Maximum sustained winds as of the JTWC Warning #02 were 55 knots with gusts of 70 knots

Tropical Cyclone 16P is dissipating inland over Australia…and has been given its Final Warning by the JTWC

Here’s a satellite image of this dissipating tropical cyclone…and a near real time wind profile (spinning clockwise in the southern hemisphere)

Tropical cyclone 16P is located about 236 NM west of Cairns, Australia

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), satellite imagery shows that this system has left the Gulf of Carpenteria, while making landfall over the Cape York Peninsula. This in turn has caused it to weaken due to land interaction, and an increase in wind shear aloft.

TC 16P is expected to remain over land, and fully dissipate over the next 12 hours.


Maximum sustained winds as of the JTWC Warning #02 were 35 knots with gusts of 45 knots


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. During the off-season, special tropical weather outlooks will be issued as conditions warrant. The Pacific Disaster Center (PDC) will begin coverage of the central Pacific again on May 15, 2016. Here’s the 2015 hurricane season summary
