Tropical Storm 01A remains active over the Gulf of Aden…boxed in on both sides by land

Here’s what the computer models are showing for this tropical cyclone

Here’s a near real time wind profile for this tropical storm

According to the JTWC, environmental conditions with warm sea surface temperatures, low 10-15 knot wind shear, and good equatorial and poleward outflow, are favorably inclined.

The primary limiting factor for intensification is the close proximity to land.

Small deviations in track could cause significant intensity changes.

Maximum sustained surface winds as of the JTWC Warning #2 are estimated at 40 knots…with gusts to 50
