Weather Outlook for Mauritius, Rodrigues and St-Brandon

This morning’s satellite imageries indicated that the tropical disturbance evolving to the northeast of the Mascarenes has intensified into a tropical depression.

At 10h00 it was centered near latitude 14.8 degrees south and Longitude 63.9 degrees east, that is at a distance of about 550 km almost to the north of Rodrigues . The depression is moving slowly in a general southeasterly direction.

Environmental conditions remain favourable for the system to develop further and most weather models are gradually intensifying the system into a moderate tropical storm, either late tonight or tomorrow morning.

In the event that this low reaches the Moderate Tropical Storm intensity, it will be named ‘DJOUNGOU’.

As the depression moves away from the Mascarenes Islands, a ridge of high pressure will temporarily establish itself over our region. However, a rather moist airstream will persist.
