The IMD is almost up to 2.0 Dvorak intensity.

Friday 06 December 2013
ALL INDIA WEATHER BULLETIN (Morning) 5:30 AM IST

Current Meteorological Analysis
The well marked low pressure area over southwest Bay of Bengal with associated upper air cyclonic circulation extending up to mid­tropospheric levels persists.

Prediction of Meteorological Condition
The well marked low pressure area over southwest Bay of Bengal may concentrate into a depression during next 6 hours.

JTs forecast is also quite low given how intense the models are making this system. I could see this peaking at 95 KT in 72 hours before it slowly weakens



The Indian Meteorological Department IMD prefers using visible satellite imagery over infrared imagery due to a perceived high bias in estimates derived from infrared imagery during the early morning hours of convective maximum.

Back when Cyclone Phailin was in BOB the IMD was getting hammered for there intensity forecasts. As it turned out they where correct with wind speed expected damage and storm surge at landfall.

No, they were NOT correct. What happened was Phailin weakened significantly in the final hours before landfall as it stalled offshore. This happened in the GOM in 1992 with Hurricane Andrew. It weakened from 125 KT to 100 KT as it slowed greatly in the hours before landfall.

There is a flaw in IMDs Dvorak analyses. The major flaw is they do not break Dvorak constraints for any reason. That is why their advisories NEVER indicate RI, even when RI is ongoing.

I just did an analysis on visible imagery and this is beyond a reasonable doubt, a tropical cyclone with winds of at least 35 KT

Time of issue: 1130 hours IST Dated: 06-12-2013

Bulletin No.: BOB08/2013/01

Sub: Depression over Southwest Bay of Bengal

Latest satellite imagery and observations indicate that a depression has formed over southwest Bay of Bengal and lay centred at 0830 hours IST of today, the 06 December 2013 near latitude 10.0N and longitude 84.0E, about 530 km southeast of Chennai and 350 km northeast of Trincomalee (Sri Lanka).

It would intensify further into a deep depression during next 24 hrs and subsequently into a cyclonic storm. It would move nearly northwards slowly during next 48 hrs and then recurve north northeastwards.

I'm thinking my 95 KT peak forecast is going to be well too low

I'm thinking at around 9.0N 84.2E it will be well into the range of very severe cyclonic storm status and then shear will wind it down.

Indeed. Intensity up to 45 knots...



REMARKS:
061500Z POSITION NEAR 9.8N 83.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 06B (SIX), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 266 NM SOUTHEAST
OF CHENNAI, INDIA, HAS TRACKED NORTHWESTWARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY (MSI) SHOWS
DEEP CONVECTION BUILDING OVER THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
(LLCC) AS THE SYSTEM HAS BECOME QUASI-STATIONARY, EVEN DRIFTING TO
THE SOUTH OVER THE PAST FEW HOURS. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED
PRIMARILY ON THE MSI. CURRENT INTENSITY HAS BEEN INCREASED FROM THE
PREVIOUS FORECAST TO 45 KNOTS BASED ON THE IMPROVEMENT IN CENTRAL
CONVECTION AND OVERALL STRUCTURAL ORGANIZATION. TC 06B IS EXPECTED
TO SLOWLY DRIFT NORTHWARD WITHIN A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT UNTIL A
LOW- TO MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) BUILDS OVER THE EASTERN
BAY OF BENGAL. ONCE THE STR BUILDS IN, TC 06B WILL TURN TO THE
NORTHEAST. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT
WITH GOOD POLEWARD OUTFLOW AND LOW TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
(VWS). TC 06B WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK OVER WARM SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES (SSTS) THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST AND IN COMBINATION WITH
THE GOOD UPPER LEVEL SUPPORT WILL ALLOW FOR THE SYSTEM TO INTENSIFY
THROUGH TAU 72. INCREASING VWS AND A SLIGHT DECREASE IN SSTS BEYOND
TAU 72 WILL LEAD TO A SLOW WEAKENING TREND IN THE EXTENDED TAUS. THE
SPREAD AMONG NUMERICAL MODEL TRACK GUIDANCE IS SIGNIFICANT
THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST, ALTHOUGH MOST OF THE MODELS PREDICT QUASI-
STATIONARY MOTION FOLLOWED BY SLOW POLEWARD MOVEMENT TO THE
NORTHEAST, IN LINE WITH THE CURRENT FORECAST. THE FORECAST TRACK HAS
BEEN KEPT CONSISTENT WITH THE PREVIOUS FORECAST, BUT TRACK SPEEDS
HAVE BEEN DECREASED TO ACCOUNT FOR THE WIDE VARIATION IN MODEL
GUIDANCE AND A LARGE SHIFT IN THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. DUE TO THE LARGE SPREAD AMONG THE INDIVIDUAL MODELS
AND THE COMPLEX STEERING ENVIRONMENT, CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT
TRACK FORECAST REMAINS LOW. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
061200Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 062100Z, 070300Z, 070900Z AND
071500Z.//

India Meteorological Department
National Bulletin

Time of issue: 0900 hours IST
Dated: 07-12-2013
Bulletin No.: BOB08/2013/05

Sub: Cyclonic storm ‘MADI’ over Southwest Bay of Bengal:

The deep depression over southwest Bay of Bengal moved northward, intensified into a
cyclonic storm, ‘MADI’ and lay centred at 0530 hours IST of 07 December 2013 over southwest Bay
of Bengal near latitude 10.50 N and longitude 84.00 E, about 500 km southeast of Chennai and 370
km northeast of Trincomalee (Sri Lanka). It would intensify further into a severe cyclonic storm during
next 24 hours. It would move nearly northwards very slowly during next 48 hrs and then recurve
north-northeastwards.
