Tropical Storm Gombe has made landfall over northern Madagascar and is expected to move into the Mozambique Channel on Wednesday, where it is expected to strengthen as a result of the warm sea surface temperatures combined with moisture from the ocean. The Witness reports that Gombe is forecast to reach tropical cyclone intensity by Friday when it is projected to briefly make landfall over northern Mozambique once again. This landfall will be short lived though, as currently Gombe is once again expected to enter the Mozambique Channel by Sunday.
