Tropical Storm Mahasen (01B) is forecast to accelerate into the mid-latitude westerlies and track across northeastern india while continually

weakening as it encounters rugged terrain and high (30 to 40 knots)
vertical wind shear. The system will dissipate below 35 knots in the
next 12 hours due to these unfavorable conditions.
