Track of TC 16S

Tropical Cyclone Haruna (16S) is forecast to continue tracking eastward under the steering influence of the subtropical ridge to the north while weakening due to increasing vertical wind shear and cooler SSTs.

Dynamic model guidance is in fair agreement through TAU 48, therefore, there is high confidence in the JTWC forecast track. The remnants of TC 16S are forecast to track westward toward Mozambique after TAU 48 as a strong high builds to the south. Maximum significant wave height is 12 feet.
