Position on Thursday 19th Night:
BB-1 is positioned at 16N and 83E, around 240 kms South West of Vizag, has turned track to East/North East. It is now tracking along the North West periphery of the STR. Will track North East.
The only signs of it being a cyclone (Roanu) is the Core pressure estimated at 985 mb and core winds estimated at 50 knts. With a decreased deep convection around the centre, nor any specific convective band seen, and with a persistent vertical shear, it does not resemble a cyclone in the satellite image.
"Roanu" will keep its strength, or still deepen a bit, before weakening from Saturday.
