Track of TS 07S

Tropical Cyclone Dumile (07S), located approximately 600 nm south-southeast of La Reunion, has tracked southeastward at 21 knots over the past six hours. Here, it can be seen southeast of Madagascar, which is partially visible in the upper left corner.

Maximum significant wave height is 27 feet. Animated multispectral satellite imagery reveals the system is interacting with a deep-layer baroclinic mid-latitude trough and is undergoing extratropical transition (ETT). The ETT is forecast to complete within 12 hours.
