Tropical storm-force Cyclone 01B can be seen spinning off the northeastern coast of Sri Lanka on Sunday
Cyclone 01B formed briefly over the southwestern Bay of Bengal, but lingering clouds brought three days of downpours to a swath of northern Sri Lanka and far southern India.

The storm never achieved significant strength due to how close to land it developed.

Wind gusts still managed to reach near 60 mph briefly near Sri Lanka's northern city of Jaffna, according to the country's meteorological service.
