Cyclone “LEHAR” is currently showing a stronger / brighter center than the previous Super Cyclone “PHAILIN”, when it formed, however the eye of “LEHAR” is not yet developed enough to be seen through yet.

A very bright center, this early on during the storms development…….this is slightly good news actually, since the heavy rains at the center of the storm (now) could lead to a cooling of the storm overall, thus decreasing its overall strength.

Right now, however, the center of the storm is showing bright whites (above the black/grey), indicating massive rains, and wind at the center.
