There’s a tropical disturbance being referred to as the remnants of TC 02S…which is located approximately 312 NM northeast of Cocos Islands, Australia

According to the JTWC, animated enhanced infrared satellite imagery depicts disorganized convection obscuring a weak low level circulation. Recent scatterometry data indicates a well defined low level circulation with small pockets of higher winds (25-30 knots) in the northern and southern semi-circles, which are associated with thunderstorm activity.

Environmental analysis continues to indicate marginal conditions for development with robust poleward outflow aloft and warm sea surface temperatures, offset by very high (30-40 knot) wind shear.

Models agree that the remnants of TC 02C may re-intensify after making the swing to the southwest.

Maximum sustained surface winds are estimated at 20-25 knots.

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