South Indian Ocean
There’s a tropical disturbance being referred to as Invest 99S, which is located approximately 643 NM west of Cocos Islands
Here’s what the computer models are showing
According to the JTWC, satellite imagery shows disorganized cloud banding into a weak low level circulation.
Invest 99S is in an environment favorable for further development, with westward upper level outflow, warm sea surface temperatures…offset by strong 25-30 knot wind shear.
Global models are in good agreement that invest 99S will track to the west with intensification over the next 24 hours.
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 is low.
