Weather Outlook for Mauritius, Rodrigues and St-Brandon

Latest satellite pictures show that convective clouds have increased in the vicinity of the low-pressure area and it is now a tropical disturbance. Low-level wind circulation indicates that the centre is most probably located near latitude 15 degrees south and longitude 65 degrees east, far to the north-northeast of Rodrigues.

There are indications that the system is moving slowly towards the south currently. However, the models show that as from Thursday evening, it will move in a general south-easterly direction and start to move away from the Mascarenes Islands.
Environmental conditions are favourable for further development of the tropical disturbance and most weather models are indicating a gradual intensification of the system into a moderate tropical storm by Friday 16 or in the morning of Saturday 17 February.

In the event that this low reaches the Moderate Tropical Storm intensity, it will be named ‘DJOUNGOU’ while located far to the north of Rodrigues.
