Figure 1. (a) Track of the low from 30 Aug to 3 Sep 2016. Positions at of the minimum MSLP are indicated by cyclone symbols every 3 h. (b) Maximum total wind speed (labeled tot), maximum tangential wind speed at a height of 1 km (labeled 1kmtan) and minimum MSLP (labeled pmin) during the same period.

 

Figure 2. Time series of vertical wind shear between 1.5 km and 10 km averaged over columns 2×2 deg. 4x4 and 8×8 deg centred at the location of the minimum MSLP.
