Upper Level analysis indicates that the system is currently in marginally favourable environment due to robust outflow, favourable SST (29°C), good lower level vorticity, moisture supply, Moderately Strong CCKW, Weak MJO(RMM) and relevant atmospheric parameters offsetting by High VWS(25-35KT).
.
•Due to the aforementioned conditions, It could intensify slowly to have it’s peak intensity within next 12-18hrs.
Then, It is likely to maintain Cyclonic Storm(≤75kph) intensity for a short period & weaken thereafter due to weakening outflow, existing high VWS, dry air intrusion & cooling sea surface.
.
•With the above atmospheric condition, the storm is likely to peak near 75kph(~1min) with gusting up to 95kph.
