However, there’s a tropical disturbance in the Bay of Bengal, which is being referred to as Invest 94B…located approximately 500 NM east of Chennai, India

Here’s a satellite image of this disturbance…along with what the computer models are showing

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), satellite and microwave images show a lack of a well defined low level circulation, although displays flaring convection to the west of the invest area.

The disturbance is currently located in a neutral to unfavorable wind shear environment, and a weak divergent upper level outflow.

Observations closest to the disturbance show air pressure decreasing very little over the past 24 hours…indicating very little deepening of this area.

Global models are in good agreement in anticipating a northerly track, with slow development over the Bay of Bengal within the next 48-72 hours.

Maximum sustained winds are estimated to be 15-20 knots.

The potential for the development of a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours is low
