Tropical Cyclone Victoria almost fully dissipated

Tropical Cyclone Victoria almost fully dissipated

Short-lived Tropical Cyclone Victoria is now tropical low or tropical depression and it has almost fully dissipated under the steadily increasing vertical wind shear associated with an approaching deep-layered trough and its interaction with a subtropical high over Australia. Australian Bureau of Meteorology suspended all warnings and it expects TC Victoria fully dissipate in the next 12 hours.

According to latest report by Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), Tropical Cyclone Victoria is located approximately 445 nm west of Learmonth, Australia. The system is moving south-southeastward at speed of 21 knots over the past six hours. Increasing vertical wind shear and decreasing sea surface temperatures will remain the major factors in the weakening trend.
