Track of TS 09S

Tropical Cyclone Emang (09S),

located approximately 490 nm south-southeast of Diego Garcia, has tracked west-southwestward at 07 knots over the past six hours. Maximum significant wave height is 14 feet.

Animated multispectral satellite imagery (MSI) indicates an exposed low-level circulation center (LLCC) with isolated deep convection over the southeast quadrant. MSI also shows that the LLCC has begun to elongate and unravel over the past six hours. This weakening trend is clearly depicted in a 170607z TRMM 37ghz image, which shows a broad LLCC with shallow banding over the southeast quadrant.
