Tropical Cyclone Laila (01B), located approximately 180 nm west-southwest of Visakhapatnam, India, has tracked north-northeastward over the past six hours.

Animated infrared satellite
imagery indicates that the low level circulation center (LLCC) has tracked inland. The current intensity is consistent with a slow weakening trend.

Dvorak intensity fixes  have been suspended now that the system is over land, and there are no nearby reporting stations. The system should continue to round the western periphery of the subtropical steering ridge to the east, paralleling the eastern shoreline of India while weakening.

The track has been shifted further inland in response to the model consensus, and dissipation is now expected to occur over land prior to entering back into the Bay of Bengal. However, heavy rain is likely to occur beyond the forecast period, in the vicinity of Bangladesh, as the remnant circulation continues to pull up moisture from the deep tropics.
