La Reunion is calling it a weak low. 3Z ScatSat indicated a well-defined LLC with 25kt winds. Looks close to TC strength now.

1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
150 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 14.0S 67.7E TO 17.9S 64.2E
WITHIN THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS. AVAILABLE DATA DOES NOT JUSTIFY
ISSUANCE OF NUMBERED TROPICAL CYCLONE WARNINGS AT THIS TIME. WINDS
IN THE AREA ARE ESTIMATED TO BE 25 TO 30 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY AT
042030Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 14.4S
67.1E. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTHWESTWARD AT 11 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION (INVEST 98S) PREVIOUSLY LOCATED
NEAR 13.7S 67.9E, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 14.4S 67.1E, APPROXIMATELY 645
NM EAST-NORTHEAST OF MAURITIUS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE

CONSOLIDATING SYSTEM WITH DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING OVER THE NORTHERN
SEMICIRCLE WRAPPING INTO A BROAD LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. A
041722Z ASCAT IMAGE SHOWS A DEFINED CIRCULATION WITH 25 TO 30 KNOT
WINDS. THE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT IS FAVORABLE WITH STRONG
DIVERGENCE ALOFT DUE TO DUAL CHANNEL OUTFLOW AND LOW (10-15KTS)
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE FAVORABLE (28-

WITH STEADY INTENSIFICATION. 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 HIGH.

Reunion Island, official RSMC has Dvorak 2.5, which would generally mean it's a TC. However, their advisories use 10-min winds. That means that even though this system liely has 35kt winds (as indicated by ScatSat), they're keeping it a depression.

MFR upgrades to Tropical Cyclone intensity with 85 kn, they think it may have peaked.
JTWC at 90 kn
