The Indian Ocean
Indian Ocean still quiet for now

As of Tuesday morning EDT, there are no active tropical cyclones in the Indian Ocean, and none are forecast to develop over the next 48 hours.
However, an area of low pressure is expected to form in the southern Bay of Bengal around midweek and may become well marked or a depression before bringing heavy rain to southern India and Sri Lanka late this week.
South of the equator, AccuWeather meteorologists are watching for possible development of a tropical depression in the southern Indian Ocean, east of Diego Garcia, late this week or weekend.
