Here's the current infrared satellite image (1130 UTC November 20). Remarkably symmetric double ITCZ structure - two long east-west lines of convection, one on either side of the equator. The cross-equatorial symmetry is more or less typical of this time of year, the transition season when the sun is moving from one hemisphere to the other. But I don't know that we get a double ITCZ this nice all so often in the Indian ocean.
By today we may be getting close indeed to phase 2. We may have our second MJO onset very soon!
