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: none.
   B. Tropical disturbance summary:
      (1) the area of convection (invest 97p) previously located 
near 8.7s 133.3e, is now located near 9.3s 134.9e, approximately 300 
nm northeast of Darwin, Australia. Animated enhanced infrared 
satellite imagery shows flaring convection associated with an 
elongated low level circulation. A 241258z AMSU-b metop-b 89 ghz 
image depicts fragmented convection located mostly around the 
perimeter of the circulation. The disturbance is located in an area 
of good overall outflow, low vertical wind shear (5-10 knots), and 
warm sea surface temperatures (29-30 celsius). Global models 
indicate slow intensification of the disturbance as it tracks 
southwestward over the next several days. Maximum sustained surface 
winds are estimated at 15 to 20 knots. Minimum sea level pressure is 
estimated to be near 1007 mb. The potential for the development of a 
significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours remains low.
      (2) no other suspect areas.//
