According to RSMC La Reunion, the system is expected to continue to track south-eastwards. It should slow down on Wednesday when the remnants of ex-tropical depression 11 are expected to merge with the circulation.
The system should resume its southeastwards track with an ongoing extra-tropical process on Thursday.
