(Express) – Cyclone Lili is barreling towards Indonesia with strong winds after it quickly developed over the course of Wednesday night. Tropical cyclone Lili is developing strong winds close to 50mph as it heads towards Indonesia. At 4 pm today, the Joint Typhoon Warning Centre warned Lili had maximum sustained winds of up to 46 mph. The storm is located 323 miles north-northwest off the coast of Darwin,

Australia and will move in a south-southwestward direction. There is not enough wind strength to pose a significant risk to the immediate area, but several strong wind warnings are now in effect. The ABM has not yet released a tropical cyclone warning for the storm. This is unlikely to be necessary even as the storm moves inland towards Indonesia. Dry air and interactions with land will result in stunted development for the system rather than intensification. READ MORE
