In these images we can observe a tropical depression in the Andaman Sea (part of the Indian Ocean), south of the Bay of Bengal. It is located approximately 1482km (921mi) east-southeast of Madras, India.

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center has reported that the area shows limited deep convection developing near an elongated low level circulation center (LLCC).

The disturbance lies slightly equatorward of an upper level ridge axis in an area of low vertical wind shear and favorable westward diffluence aloft.

Its maximum sustained surface winds are estimated at 28 to 37km/h (17 to 23mph), and minimum sea level pressure is estimated at 1008mb.

Due to the elongated LLCC and disorganized associated convection, the potential for the development of a significant cyclone in the next 24 hours remains poor.
