Sri Lanka Visible as Remnants of Tropical Cyclone 07B Move Away
Clouds over Sri Lanka clear, making the island nation visible to the left, as the remains of Tropical Cyclone 07B move away.
A remnant of Tropical Cyclone 07B is located approximately 84 nautical miles west-southwest of Colombo, Sri Lanka. After moving over water west of Sri Lanka over the past 24 hours it tracked generally westward at 7 knots.
Recent imagery reveals a partially exposed low-level circulation center (LLCC) with flaring convection to the west. Limited deep convection near the weak LLCC was confirmed, with no evidence of formative banding associated with the circulation.
The system remains fairly disorganized and is under moderate vertical wind shear.
Maximum sustained surface winds are estimated at 15 to 20 knots and minimum sea level pressure at 1009 mb.
Due to the lack of organization, weak LLCC and moderate vertical wind shear, the potential for the development of a significant tropical cyclone within thte next 24 hours is poor.
