Body

The newly formed Tropical Storm JASMINE is moving eastwards over the Mozambique Channel, towards the south-western coast of Madagascar. On 26 April at 4.00 UTC, its centre was located about 240 km east of Toliara City (Atsimo-Andrefana Region, south-west Madagascar), with maximum sustained winds of 116 km/h. 

JASMINE is forecast to make landfall in the afternoon of 26 April in an area close to Toliara, with maximum sustained winds up to 105 km/h. After the landfall it is expected to weaken, dissipating on 27 April over Atsimo-Andrefana Region.

On 26-27 April, strong winds are forecast over Atsimo-Andrefana, while locally moderate rainfall is expected over the central and southern coast of western Madagascar, particularly for the Regions of Atsimo-Andrefana and Menabe.
