As of Monday afternoon, EST, Tropical Cyclone Dineo is centered near the island of Europe in the Mozambique Channel, about 550 miles east-northeast of Maputo, Mozambique. Movement is towards the south at less than 5 mph with highest sustained winds of 45 mph.
Dineo is gradually consolidating, as the overall regional environment is favorable for cyclone generation. Significant further intensification is forecast during the next 24-48 hours as the storm tracks towards the south and west. Ultimately, Dineo is expected to make landfall on the Mozambique coast between Vilanculos and Inharrime as early as late Wednesday, local time.
