Hud hud has formed...and cyclone is steaming ahead, ready to stregnthen and deepen along its track.
According to satellite image, a curvaed cloud formation and a resultant formative eye is seen . From thei image and eye, we can deduce the centre to be located at 13.3N and 90.2E. As per study of Satellite imagery and banding, we can estimate the core winds at 60 knts and pressure around 990 mb.
Upper air divergence has shot up to 40 knts and tracking into warmer seas..hence faster intensification possible.( an anticyclone in the upper layers of the troposphere above the storm must be present as well — for extremely low surface pressures to develop, air must be rising very rapidly in the eyewall of the storm, and an upper-level anticyclone helps channel this air away from the cyclone efficiently).
Cyclone is along the Southern edge of the Sub Tropical Ridge, which is to the NE of the cyclone. Would expect the cyclone, or severe cyclone by then, to curve to the NW by Friday.
Very Heavy rains from Friday along Odisha, North AP and adjoining W.Bengal coast, with winds upto 90-100 knts, 165 -189 kmph, on landfall. Waves, dangerous waves upto 15 feet expected...precautions necassary.
Super Typhoon Vongfong !!
Winds speed at 268 kmph, 145 knts, gusting to 175 kmph or 325 kmph !! and Core estimated pressure at 914 mb.
Massive 50 feet waves causing dangerous situations in the Sea.
