I woke up this morning to learn that the Mauritius Meteo Office has issued a cyclone warning Class I. But the cyclone has no name. On the social networks people find this weird too. It is the first time that the Meteo Office has issued a "cyclone warning" for an unnamed cyclone.

At this morning, the satellite image published on the Meteo office website would call this unnamed cyclone Tropical Disturbance 'C'. That explains it. The 'system' hasn't intensified enough to be categorized as a tropical cyclone. The latest cyclone bulletin issued at 10h10 calls this 'system' a tropical depression.

The satellite image shows that the Tropical Depression 'C' was situated at about 350 km to the north-east of Mauritius. As per the forecast of the Met Office, there is a chance that it will further intensify into a tropical storm.

We will find more in the next cyclone bulletin which will be issued at 16h10.

Meanwhile, there is intermittent rain in Providence with strong gusts of wind at certain times.
