Tropical Cyclone 15S (Emeraude) is dissipating…located about 846 NM east-southeast of Diego Garcia – Final Warning

PDC Global Hazards Atlas displaying rainfall accumulation over the last 3-hours…and tropical cyclone Positions and Segments, and Estimated Winds (TAOS Model) layers for Tropical Cyclone 15S (Emeraude)

Tropical Cyclone 15S (Emeraude) is quickly losing steam in the South Indian Ocean

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 15S is located about 846 NM east-southeast of Diego Garcia

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), satellite imagery depicts a broad, full exposed low level circulation center, with isolated bursts of deep convection displaced over the southwest periphery of the center.

Scatterometer data shows 25-30 knot gradient winds over the southern semi-circle…with 20-30 knots elsewhere.

Dynamic weather model guidance indicates that the system will track generally westward through 48 hours…then turn sharply poleward.

Overall, environmental conditions are forecast to remain marginally favorable until 72 hours, when poleward outflow is expected to improve.

Thereafter, there is potential for the system to regenerate near the 72 hour point.

Maximum sustained winds as of the JTWC Warning #14 were 30 knots with gusts of 40 knots
