The area of convection located near Sri Lanka has strengthened and become Tropical Cyclone 07B.

It is located approximately 480 nautical miles east of Sri Lanka and has tracked westward at 6 knots over the past 6 hours.

The system has started to consolidate its organization, with a well defined low level circulation center (LLCC) and deep convection over the center.

Recent imagery shows a large center of deep convection developing over the LLCC and banding wrapping into the LLCC.

Upper level analysis indicates the system is south of the subtropical ridge axis in a favorable environment with moderate vertical wind shear and strong diffluence aloft.

The maximum significant wave height is 10 feet.
