ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL AND INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOW CONTINUED CONSOLIDATION OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH INCREASED DEEP CONVECTION BUILDING IN THE VICINITY OF THE LLCC. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES AN ANTI- CYCLONE LOCATED OVER THE NORTHERN ARABIAN SEA IS PROVIDING FAVORABLE EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW AND CREATING A MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ENVI- RONMENT FOR THE LLCC. SURFACE CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE WITH SEA SUR- FACE TEMPERATURES AROUND 31 CELSIUS BASED ON RECENT BUOY AND SHIP OBSERVATIONS. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. THIS IS SUPPORTED BY A 310507Z ASCAT SCATTEROMETRY IMAGE AND A SHIP OBSERVATION JUST TO THE WEST OF THE LLCC. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1005 MB. BASED ON BUILDING DEEP CONVECTION AND FAVORABLE SURFACE CONDITIONS, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS UPGRADED TO GOOD. . 3 Image Source: Tropicalstormrisk
