Track of TC 03S

Tropical Storm Claudia (03S),

located approximately 870 nm south of Diego Garcia, has tracked southward at 09 knots over the past six hours.
Animated multispectral satellite imagery (MSI) reveals TC 03S has become partially exposed with the bulk of the convection now contained to the southern semi-circle. The system is starting to become extra-tropical as a weak warm front is beginning to form with a delta rain region observed in the southwest quadrant.
