 Special Coverage

SYDNEY -- The search for the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has resumed off Western Australia's coast following the improvement in weather conditions, local media reported on Wednesday.

Conditions around the search area are expected to favor the search on Wednesday, said Adam Conroy, senior weather forecaster from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.

"Weather conditions are set to improve through the search area in the southern Indian Ocean. [We] should see winds and seas ease and really just isolated showers through the area," Conroy told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).

Twelve planes and several ships are expected to join the search and recovery operation, with six countries involved in the search - Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Japan, China and the Republic of Korea, according to the ABC.

China's polar supply ship and three other Chinese ships are expected to arrive in the search area on Wednesday.

India has also offered to join the operation.

Authorities are hoping to uncover the pieces of suspected debris that were spotted by a surveillance aircraft on Monday, local media reports said.

Bad weather on Tuesday forced Australian authorities to call off the search for the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
