Tropical Cyclone Activity Report – Pacific Ocean / Indian Ocean / Arabian Sea

There are no active tropical cyclones at this time

http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/PS/TROP/floaters/93W/imagery/vis0-lalo.gif

However, there’s a tropical disturbance circled in yellow above, which is being referred to as Invest 93W…located approximately 534 NM southeast of Yap in the western Pacific Ocean

Here’s a near real time wind profile of this tropical disturbance.

Environmental analysis indicates that 93W is located in an area of low 5-10 knot wind shear, and strong divergence aloft, which is fueling deep convection. In addition, warm sea surface temperatures are favorable for development.

Global models do not show development in the 96 hour window at this time.

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
