REF B IS A TROPICAL  /CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT.//  RMKS/  1. NORTH INDIAN OCEAN AREA (MALAY PENINSULA WEST TO COAST OF   AFRICA):     A. TROPICAL CYCLONE SUMMARY: NONE.     B. TROPICAL DISTURBANCE SUMMARY: NONE.  2. SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN AREA (135E WEST TO COAST OF AFRICA):     A. TROPICAL CYCLONE SUMMARY:        (1) AT 190000Z, TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (SAVANNAH) WAS LOCATED   NEAR 18.1S 86.6E, APPROXIMATELY 1056 NM SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA,   AND HAD TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX   HOURS. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS WERE ESTIMATED AT 45 KNOTS   GUSTING TO 55 KNOTS. SEE REF A (WTXS31 PGTW 190300) FOR FURTHER   DETAILS.        (2) NO OTHER TROPICAL CYCLONES.     B. TROPICAL DISTURBANCE SUMMARY:        (1) THE AREA OF CONVECTION (INVEST 95S) PREVIOUSLY LOCATED   NEAR 13.7S 121.8E, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 14.3S 121.0E, APPROXIMATELY   231 NM NORTH-NORTHEAST OF BROOME, AUSTRALIA. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL   SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A 190105Z MHS 89GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE DEPICT A   CONSOLIDATING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION (LLC) WITH CURVED DEEP   CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE CENTER. A 181359Z ASCAT PASS   REVEALS A DEFINED CIRCULATION WITH STRONGER WINDS WRAPPING IN FROM   THE SOUTH. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS SHOWS AN AREA OF LOW TO MODERATE   (10-20KTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR, WITH EQUATORWARD AND POLEWARD   OUTFLOW. WARM SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (30-32 CELSIUS) IN THE   SURROUNDING WATERS REMAIN CONDUCIVE FOR FUTURE DEVELOPMENT. DYNAMIC   MODELS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT INDICATING A SOUTHWESTWARD TRAJECTORY   AND GRADUAL INTENSIFICATION TO TROPICAL CYCLONE STRENGTH OVER THE   NEXT 18-30 HOURS. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT   25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR   1000 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT   TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS UPGRADED TO HIGH. SEE   REF B (WTXS21 PGTW 190300) FOR FURTHER DETAILS.        (2) AN AREA OF CONVECTION (INVEST 93S) HAS PERSISTED NEAR   12.8S 63.2E, APPROXIMATELY 639 NM NORTH-NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION.   ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL IMAGERY AND A 182246Z SSMI 85GHZ DEPICT A   WEAKLY-DEFINED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION (LLC) WITH DISORGANIZED   CONVECTION. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS DEPICTS 93S BORDERING AN AREA OF   MODERATE TO STRONG (20-30 KNOT) VERTICAL WINDS SHEAR WITH POLEWARD   OUTFLOW. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (28-30 CELSIUS) IN THE SURROUNDING   WATERS SUPPORT FUTURE DEVELOPMENT. MULTIPLE MODELS INDICATE WEAK,   SLOW DEVELOPMENT OVER THE NEXT 48-72 HOURS. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED   SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 15 TO 20 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL   PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1004 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE   DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24   HOURS IS LOW.        (3) NO OTHER SUSPECT AREAS.  3. JUSTIFICATION FOR REISSUE: UPGRADED AREA IN PARA 2.B.(1) TO HIGH   AND ADDED AREA IN PARA 2.B.(2) AS A LOW.//  NNNN

Normally there is an update every 4 hours, like the current satellite image of the cyclone itself. With the forecast, the direction, as well as strength and location with date & time.

Cyclone Infos & Formation explained

Who determines the cyclone names?

Cyclone names are selected in advance by the RA I Tropical Cyclone Committee of the World Meteorological Organization.

Members
Botswana - Comoros - France (RSMC La Réunion Tropical Cyclone Centre) - Kenya - Lesotho - Madagascar - Malawi - Mauritius - Mozambique - Namibia - Seychelles - South Africa - Swaziland - United Republic of Tanzania - Zimbabwe
Cyclone Description

Classification of cyclones depends on the maximum continuous wind speed.

Cyclone Names

Cyclones migrating from the Australian observation area over the 90th degree of longitude are given a new name.

The other way around, they keep their name.

Info Here in our picture it is very well explained what it takes for a cyclone to form and how it is constructed. In which latitude they arise and which conditions must prevail.

is, with 1 min peaks of 285 km/h, the strongest tropical cyclone measured in the southwestern Indian Ocean.

What is a Cyclone?

A cyclone is an atmospheric disturbance in tropical regions that causes strong vertical winds and heavy rainfall. The pressure in the centre is minimal.

What is the DANGEROUS thing about a cyclone

Wind strength: winds reach their maximum values at the periphery of the eye. Precipitation: torrential rains accompanying the system cause flooding, landslides or landslides. The sea: the rise in mean sea level linked to the passage of the cyclone combines with the enormous waves of the cyclonic swell to undermine the coastline or flood the coastal plains.

Who detects and monitors cyclones?

Meteo-France Reunion is a CMRS (Centre Météorologique Spécialisé "Cyclone") officially in charge of detecting and monitoring tropical disturbances in the South-West Indian Ocean.
