The area of convection in the Andaman Sea is now located 430 nautical miles East of Madras, India.

Recent imagery shows deep convection, that was previously confined to the peripheries of the circulation, developing near the center of the slowly consolidating low level circulation center (LLCC).

This disturbance lies near an upper-level anti-cyclone axis, in an area of low to moderate vertical wind shear and favorable poleward diffluence aloft.

Maximum sustained surface winds are estimated at 20 to 25 knots. Minimum sea level pressure is estimated to be near 1003mb.

Due to the consolidating deep convection, the potential for the development of a significant tropical cyclone in the next 24 hours is upgraded to fair.
