An area of disturbed weather has developed southwest of the Cape Comorin of India and is now becoming a tropical cyclone. The system, named 05A, is currently tracking northwest over the Arabian Sea.
Model forecasts are pushing the system to the northwest then curving the system to the northeast when the system encounters strong westerly winds aloft. Before it takes its turn, it will encounter somewhat favorable conditions and may strengthen by midday Sunday.
After this period, however, the system should begin to weaken as it encounters some strong wind shear. Eventually, the weakened storm should make landfall late this week anywhere from eastern Oman to western India. Even if the system loses strength before landfall, heavy rain can accompany the remnants. The wave that spawned 05A already brought over 7 inches of rain to places in southeast India on Thursday and Friday. (AccuWeather)
