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 94s) previously located near 18.8s 34.6e, is now located
near 23.8s 39.1e, approximately 215 nm south-southwest of Europa
island. Animated enhanced infrared imagery depicts an area of very
broad, elongated turning embedded with several small vortices. A
181455z ssmis 91ghz image indicates there is weak, scattered
convection linearly oriented in the area. 94s is located on the cusp
of high vertical wind shear (25-30 kts), good poleward outflow, and
warm sea surface temperatures (28-29c). Global models have eased off
on significant development of the system as interaction with
Madagascar will inhibit intensification.  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.//
