Neither the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), or the National Hurricane Center (NHC are reporting any active tropical cyclones…nor areas of disturbed weather under investigation today.

Meanwhile, NOAA’s Tropical Cyclone Formation Probability Guidance Product, is showing an area with a low to medium chance of developing into a tropical cyclone. This is in the region between the equator and 10 degrees south, and around 75 degrees east longitude…in the South Indian Ocean. As mentioned above however, the JTWC isn’t mentioning this as a suspect area at the time of this writing.
