Tropical Cyclone 13S (Gael), located approximately 170 nautical miles north of La Reunion, is forecast to re-curve ahead of a deepening midlatitude trough, currently over Madagascar.

This will serve to weaken the mid-level subtropical ridge positioned south and southwest of the system and provide an enhanced northwesterly to west-northwesterly steering influence as well as an improved poleward outflow channel.

A decrease in track speed should occur by TAU 24, though Gael is forecast to intensify at a 20-25 knot per day rate.
