Another Tropical System has formed coming off of East Asia.. heading Westward into the Indian Ocean. Already a named storm, called “Lehar”.
Currently at “tropical storm” status, forecast to build into at least a Category 3 Cyclone on its way West towards the Eastern coast of India. May make landfall along the same path as Super Typhoon “Phailin”, which made landfall several weeks ago.
Current forecasts show the storm weakening slightly before landfall. However, currently “Lehar” is getting stronger.
