Again, there are now three (3) tropical cyclone ongoing in the tropics – two over the South Indian Ocean and one over the South Pacific
There have been three tropical waves ongoing in the Southwest Indian Ocean earlier this week, two of them have been upgraded to a tropical cyclone. Now there is also a new tropical cyclone in the South Pacific. While all systems are classified as tropical cyclones, they are only poorly organized and remain over the open seas only, so no threat to the land areas at all.
Tropical Cyclone #10S / #Diane
Tropical Cyclone Diane is still organizing, it maintains around 45 knots of maximum sustained winds, with central pressure 996 mbar. It is likely to peak around 50 knots late Sunday or early Monday before it begins weakening and turning south on Tuesday.
Tropical Cyclone #11S / #Esami
Tropical Cyclone #11S / #Esami will remain a weekly organized tropical system, and expected to dissipate on Tuesday. It is packing maximum sustained winds of 40 knots and central pressure around 998 mbar.
Tropical Cyclone #12S
In the South Pacific, there is now also a Tropical Cyclone #12S, located to the east of the Niue Island. It is however quite disorganized but has been classified as a tropical cyclone with maximum sustained winds of 35 knots. The system should not change much in the coming days and likely vanish by Tuesday.
