There’s a tropical disturbance being referred to as Invest 92S…which is located approximately 291 NM southwest of Maputo, Mozambique

The system is currently classified as a subtropical storm, generally characterized as having both tropical and mid-latitude cyclone features.

According to the JTWC…satellite imagery depicts a weak ill defined low level circulation with a lack of convection.

Environmental analysis reveals unfavorable conditions for development defined by weak
outflow aloft, high (20-30 knot) vertical wind shear, and cool sea surface temperatures.

Global models are in good agreement that invest 92sS will weaken as it tracks eastward over the next 12 to 24 hours.

Maximum sustained surface winds are estimated at 25 to 35 knots.

The potential for the development of a significant tropical cyclone is no longer considered suspect for the development of a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours.
