1. NORTH INDIAN OCEAN AREA (MALAY PENINSULA WEST TO COAST OF AFRICA):
   A. TROPICAL CYCLONE SUMMARY:
      (1) AT 151200Z, TROPICAL CYCLONE 08B (EIGHT) WAS LOCATED NEAR 
10.4N 85.1E, APPROXIMATELY 450 NM SOUTH-SOUTHEAST OF VISAKHAPATNAM, 
INDIA, AND HAD TRACKED NORTH- NORTHWESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE 
PAST SIX HOURS. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS WERE ESTIMATED AT 35 
KNOTS GUSTING TO 45 KNOTS. SEE REF A (WTIO31 PGTW 151500) FOR 
FURTHER DETAILS.
      (2) NO OTHER TROPICAL CYCLONES.
   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 91S) PREVIOUSLY LOCATED 
NEAR 8.2S 91.5E, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 8.8S 90.9E, APPROXIMATELY 405. 
NM WEST-NORTHWEST OF COCOS ISLAND.  ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED 
SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A PARTIALLY EXPOSED, CONSOLIDATING LOW 
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER WITH PERSISTENT DEEP CONVECTION BUILDING 
OVER THE CENTER. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS SHOWS A MARGINAL UPPER LEVEL 
ENVIRONMENT WITH HIGH (25-30 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR OFFSET BY 
STRONG UPPER-LEVEL DIVERGENCE AND A POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL. SEA 
SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE FAVORABLE FOR TC DEVELOPMENT AT 28C-30C. 
ALL GLOBAL MODELS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT FOR DEVELOPMENT OF 35 KNOT 
WINDS OR MORE WITHIN 24 HOURS TRACKING GENERALLY SOUTHWARD. 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 REMAINS HIGH. SEE REF B (WTXS21 PGTW 142100) FOR FURTHER 
DETAILS.
      (2) THE AREA OF CONVECTION (INVEST 92S) PREVIOUSLY LOCATED 
NEAR 9.4S 57.7E, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 10.0S 57.8E, APPROXIMATELY 886 
NM WEST-SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA.  ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED 
SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A 151427Z 91GHZ SSMIS IMAGE DEPICT A PARTIALLY 
EXPOSED, SLOWLY CONSOLIDATING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION (LLC) WITH 
SPARSE CONVECTION. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE FAVORABLE (BETWEEN 
28-30 DEGREES CELSIUS). THE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT IS OVERALL 
MARGINAL, WITH MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (BETWEEN 15-25 KNOTS) 
AND MODERATE BUT IMPROVING UPPER-LEVEL DIVERGENCE DUE TO GENERAL 
EASTERLY UL OUTFLOW AND A POINT SOURCE ALOFT. GLOBAL MODELS SHOW 
SLOW DEVELOPMENT OVER THE NEXT 48-72 HOURS WITH A GENERALLY EASTWARD 
TRACK. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 
KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1004 MB. 
THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE 
WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS REMAINS LOW.
      (3) NO OTHER SUSPECT AREAS.//

IDQ10810
Australian Government Bureau of MeteorologyQueensland
Tropical Cyclone Outlook for Coral Sea
Issued at 2:30 pm EST on Saturday 15 December 2018for the period until midnight EST Tuesday 18 December 2018.
Existing Cyclones in the Eastern Region:
Nil.
Potential Cyclones:

At 1pm AEST Saturday, Tropical cyclone Owen (category 1) was weakening over land over southern Cape York Peninsula. Refer to the latest Tropical Cyclone Advice and associated Forecast Track Map for further details on this system [http://www.bom.gov.au/cyclone/index.shtml].

Owen is expected to transition to a tropical low in the next hour or two. Over the weekend, Ex-Owen is likely to track further east southeast and emerge off the Queensland east coast during Sunday or Monday. The system is likely to be disrupted by the passage over the higher terrain near the east coast. However, given the potential for the system to move offshore in a marginally conducive environment, there may be some slow redevelopment. It is currently rated a moderate chance of reforming into a tropical cyclone on Tuesday.

Likelihood of a tropical cyclone in the Eastern Region (Coral Sea) on:

Sunday:Very Low

Monday:Low

Tuesday:Moderate

NOTES: The likelihood is an estimate of the chance of each system being a tropical cyclone in the Region for each day.

Very Low:
less than 5%
Low:
5% to 20%

Moderate:
20 to 50%
High:
Over 50%

The area of coverage for this outlook is the Coral Sea and northern Tasman Sea west of 160E.
