Tropical Cyclone 09S (Fanele) - January 22nd, 2009

Tropical Cyclone 09S (Fanele) - January 22nd, 2009

Tropical Cyclone 09S (Fanele), located approximately 370 nautical miles south-southeast of Antananarivo, Madagascar, has tracked east-southeastward at 16 knots over the past 6 hours.

Animated multi-spectral imagery indicates that the low level circulation center (LLCC) has moved back over water with deep convection building on the periphery of the LLCC.

The intesity is expecte to increase briefly over the next 12 hours, but increased interaction with a mid-latitude trough will weaken and allow 09S to complete extratropical transition by TAU 24.

The cyclone is tracking along the southwestern periphery of the subtropical ridge while accelerating under the influence of an approaching mid-latitude trough to the southwest.
Maximum significant wave height is 12 feet.
