Tropical Cyclone Phet is Now Weakening

With a change in the forecast, Tropical Cyclone Phet is no longer expected to reach Category 5 strength with sustained winds of 140 mph. Instead, Phet is expected to hug the coast of Oman while weakening, then push north then east-northeast across the northern Arabian Sea to the coast of Pakistan without regaining any of its former intensity. In fact, this is a change from just the previous forecast which took Phet inland over Oman for a day, before then turning toward Pakistan.

Phet is at/near its peak intensity with sustained winds of 110 knots (126.5 mph) with gusts to 130 knots (149 mph), as of this posting.

ImpactWeather is producing daily video forecasts for the Arabian Sea, as well as eight other worldwide regions.
