However, there’s a tropical disturbance, being referred to as Invest 92B…located approximately 290 NM southeast of Visakhapatnam, India

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

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), satellite imagery depicts a monsoon depression with an exposed low level circulation center, bands of convection are rotating cyclonically around the periphery…with minimal convection near the center.

92B is located in an area of moderately strong 10-20 knot wind shear, with a strong gradient towards stronger wind shear to the west. Meanwhile, sea surface temperatures are favorable in the Bay of Bengal.

Global models indicate 92B will slowly strengthen and maintain its broad wind field and lack central convection…while tracking north to northwestward over the next several days.

Maximum sustained winds are estimated to be 28-33 knots.

The potential for the development of a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours remains high
