The experimental activity of monitoring MJO and equatorial waves carried out for several years at the DIROI (to be discovered here) has made it possible to identify a set of figures that allow a quick analysis of the forecast of cyclonic activity and weather patterns in the south-west Indian Ocean. These figures have been compiled on this web page which is updated on a weekly basis. The human expertise of a qualified user will allow to extract the relevant information and to nuance the forecasts from the numerical models to propose an informed forecast of the cyclonic activity and weather patterns for the next 4 weeks.

This web page is being tested with a target audience (forecasters) and will be improved following feedback at the end of the hurricane season.
