Track of TC 01B

The low level circulation center (LLCC) of Tropical Storm Mahasen (01B) has been steadily tracking to the northeast under the influence of the subtropical ridge (STR) to the east of the system. Vertical wind shear (VWS) has started to decrease and is currently at moderate levels (15 to 20 knots), allowing for building convection.
