Tropical Cyclone Activity

MetService continually monitors the tropics for developing lows which may have the potential to form into a tropical cyclone (TC). For more information about these monitoring activities, visit our Tropical Cyclone Monitoring page.

Satellite Imagery

This infrared satellite imagery shows the cloud patterns over the tropics. The deepest convective clouds, often associated with thunderstorms, are coloured red and black. The player uses the last 24 hours' worth of hourly images to show their movement and development.
