Tropical Cyclone Irving

4 - 6 January 2018


Tropical Cyclone Irving formed over open ocean well to the west of the Cocos (Keeling) Islands on 6 January. Vertical wind shear was a prominent feature of its early lifetime with deep convection and maximum winds to the west of the system centre. Despite the unfavourable vertical wind shear, Irving intensified into a tropical cyclone shortly before entering RSMC La Reunion's area as it moved west through the Indian Ocean.

There were no known impacts associated with Irving
