An area of convection is located approximately 335 nautical miles west-northwest of Cocos Island.

Recent animated water vapor imagery shows convection around the low level circulation center has flared up over the past six hours.

Although diffluence aloft remains good, strong vertical wind shear will hamper any significant development.

Maximum sustained surface winds are estimated at 15 to 20 knots and minimum sea level pressure at 1005mb.

The potential for the development of a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours remains poor.
