At 16h00 today, it was centered near latitude 19.8 degrees south and longitude 78.8 degrees east, that is at a distance of about 1650 km almost to the east of Rodrigues. It is moving in a general east-south-easterly direction at an accelerated speed of about 35 km/h.

Most weather models indicate that Djoungou will maintain this intensity till tomorrow and as it will move to higher latitudes, it will transition to a post tropical system. It does not represent a threat since it will continue to move away from the Mascarenes Islands towards the south-east.

The low-level circulation off the north-east coast of Madagascar has intensified into a tropical disturbance this morning and it is expected to continue to develop. Latest satellite image indicate more organized convective clouds in the vicinity of the system.

There is likelihood that this system may reach the naming stage during the night of Monday 19 to early Tuesday 20 morning. However, there are still some uncertainties regarding the intensity and movement of the system.
