STH stormwatch (09Nov2013) : Low pressure over Andaman Sea

2013 seems to be ending with a bang, what with a low pressure brewing up in the Andaman sea in early Oct and mutating  into  Very Severe Cyclone Phailin within a week and  with Super Typhoon Haiyan literally obliterating parts of Philippines yesterday.
IMetD is now reporting another low pressure in the Andaman sea which it cautions will intensify into a well-marked low pressure area within 24 hrs - that is exactly what happened with Phailin.
