1. North Indian Ocean area (Malay Peninsula west to coast of Africa):
   a. Tropical cyclone summary: none.
   B. Tropical disturbance summary: none.
2. South Indian Ocean area (135e west to coast of Africa):
   a. Tropical cyclone summary: none.
   B. Tropical disturbance summary:
      (1) the area of convection previously located near 8.2s 
131.9e, is now located near 9.3s 133.4e, approximately 245 nm 
northeast of Darwin, Australia. Animated infrared satellite imagery 
depicts flaring deep convection over a consolidating low level 
circulation center (LLCC). A 231255z metop-b microwave pass shows a 
weak circulation with a fragmented and shallow band of convection 
south of the llc. Sea surface temperatures in the area are conducive 
for development at 30 degrees celsius. Also, upper level analysis 
reveals an increasingly favorable environment with widely divergent 
outflow; however, moderate to strong (20 to 30 knot) vertical wind 
shear is displacing the convection. Maximum sustained surface winds 
are estimated at 20 to 25 knots. Minimum sea level pressure is 
estimated to be near 1003 mb. The potential for the development of a 
significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours remains medium.
      (2) no other suspect areas.  //
