    2.C ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
    T=3.0- CI=3.5-

    OVER THE LAST 6 HOURS, THE LOW-LEVEL CENTER HAS EMERGED TO THE
    NORTHWEST OF THE CONVECTION UNDER THE EFFECT OF MID-TROPOSPHERE
    SHEAR, AS SHOWN IN THE 1356Z SSMIS MICROWAVE IMAGE. THE INTENSITY
    ESTIMATE OF THE SYSTEM IS IN AGREEMENT WITH THE LAST OBJECTIVE
    ESTIMATES.

    JOBO KEEPS ON TRACKING WEST-NORTHWESTERLY, UNDER THE EFFECT OF THE MID-TROPOSPHERE RIDGE LOCATED OVER THE CENTER OF THE MOZAMBIQUE
    CHANNEL AND OF THE LOW-LEVEL FLOW OVER THE NORTHERN PART OF THE
    CHANNEL, FROM SATURDAY. THE DISPERSION IN THE DIFFERENT ENSEMBLE
    MODELS IS HIGH IN DIRECTION. JOBO IS CURRENTLY TRACKING MORE THAN 300
    KM NORTH OF THE GREAT COMOROS ARCHIPELAGO AND CONTINUES ITS TRACK
    TOWARDS THE TANZANIAN COAST. JOBO IS EXPECTED TO LAND BETWEEN
    ZANZIBAR AND MTWARA ON SATURDAY EVENING.

    AT THE MOMENT IT IS MAINLY A MID-TROPOSPHERIC WESTERLY SHEAR THAT
    SEEMS TO WEAKEN JOBO. TOMORROW, THE SHEAR STRENGTHENS SLIGHTLY AND
    CONTINUES TO WEAKEN THE SYSTEM DURABLY BEFORE ITS LANDING, AS A
    FILLING LOW.

    IN TERMS OF EXPECTED IMPACTS, THE HEAVY RAINFALL IS EXPECTED TO EASE
    OFF OVER THE COMOROS ARCHIPELAGO. FOR TANZANIA, WITH THE WEAKENING OF
    JOBO BEFORE LANDFALL, THE IMPACTS COULD REMAIN LIMITED IN TERMS OF
    WIND. HOWEVER, HEAVY RAINFALL IS EXPECTED IN THE LANDING ZONE BETWEEN
    ZANZIBAR AND MTWARA FROM SUNDAY, ACCUMULATIONS REACHING 200/300 MM IN
    24 HOURS (EVEN VERY LOCALLY 400 TO 500 MM) ARE LIKELY. THESE RAINFALL QUANTITIES ARE EQUIVALENT TO THE MONTHLY ACCUMULATION FOR APRIL.
