Following landfall, Jade weakened steadily as its made its way towards the southwest. Movement towards the south and southwest is forecast to persist through at least Wednesday. Such a path would favor continued excessive rain near Jade's center over the eastern side of Madagascar.
Any return to sea east of Madagascar within the next two to three days could bring about a redevelopment of Jade with renewed serious impact to the eastern side of the island.
