Tropical Cyclone Amara Weakening

December 22, 2013 Updated: July 18, 2015

Tropical Cyclone Amara, already weakening, is expected to continue to weaken and not impact any people.

“In the next 12 to 24 hours, a strong low-level high will build in to the south and will act to slow [the cyclone], leading to quasi-stationary movement,” a National WEather forecast from December 22 said. “The combined effects of increasing vws and cold sea surface temperatures will continue to rapidly decay the system throughout the forecast period, dissipating Amara below warning threshold in the next 36 hours.”

There is a possibility that Amara will track back west, but it would be at “a very weakened state.” 

A forecast by GDACS added that the cycle isn’t expected to impact people, despite earlier precautionary warnings for several islands in Mauritius.
