Track of TC 01B

Tropical Storm Mahasen (01B) is forecast to turn north in the next 12 hours along the southwestern periphery of the subtropical ridge (STR) situated over the northern Andaman Sea. After TAU 12, TC 01B is expected to slowly track north through TAU 36 before it turns northeastward as the STR re-orients in response to an approaching mid-latitude shortwave trough, which is currently over northern India.
