Storms and Floods

Tropical Storms

Weak 2013 Atlantic hurricane season draws to close November 30th.

In the North Indian Ocean:

Tropical cyclone Lehar is located approximately 390 nm southeast of Visakhapatnam, India.

Dangerous Category 1 Cyclone Lehar is slowly intensifying as it heads west-northwest at 10 mph towards India’s Bay of Bengal coast. Lehar has not been able to form a prominent eye, and is likely having problems getting organized in the face of moderate wind shear. Ocean temperatures are a very warm 28 – 29°C, and Lehar should be able to attain Category 2 strength before landfall Thursday. Cooler waters near shore and an increase in wind shear as the storm nears landfall will likely mean that Lehar will be weakening as it comes ashore.
