The Tropical Cyclone Bouchra was formed Nov 10 in the south-south Indian Ocean and has been on the road emitting when the NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed on November 13.

Bouchra was formed Nov 10 to about 4 a.m. EDT (0900 UTC) is approximately 220 miles north of Cocos Island, close to 5.5 degrees south latitude and 90.7 east latitude. This was the fourth tropical cycle of the South Indian Ocean Cyclone Season.

On November 13, Infrastructural Infrared Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) at NASA-NOAA's NPP Satellite Server demonstrated Bouchra of Tropical Depression with an inorganic storm. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center noted that the storm had "a centralized disorganized discharge from the east, partially showing weak and low-level circulation."

The storm was stormy from the east of the east. In general, the wind shear is an event of how speed and direction winds are changing altitude. Winds of different levels of atmosphere were forced to force him to rotate the cylindrical circulation center.

On November 13 at 4 pm EDT (0900 UTC) Bouchra Maximum Sustainable Winds dropped 34.5 mph (30 knots / 55.5 kph). It is located approximately 495 north to the north of Cocos Island close to 7.2 degrees south latitude and 90.3 degrees east latitude. Bouchra was going to the south-east, and would later destroy it.
