Severe Tropical Storm Corentin

Recommended Posts

The south indian ocean has awoken from it's slumber with a new tropical storm, named Corentin, located in the central south indian ocean, about 500 miles south of Diego Garcia. Winds are at 35kts. Strengthening is expected, as shear is set to ease, and waters are warm along track. Corentin's peak is expected to be 90kts according to JTWC, before Corentin slips south into cooler water and increased shear with the increasing lattitude. Corentin is not expected to affect land.

Corentin only peaked at 75kts. The storm has now weakened to 50kts as it heads into cooler waters and high shear. These two factors will being about Corentin's demise in about 24hrs.
