REMARKS:
Severe Tropical Cyclone Dovi is weakening as it rapidly tracks south with the
loss of the southern eye wall on IR imagery.

Intensity estimate reduced to 70kn. Dvorak DT becoming more difficult to
classify although curved band pattern 0.5-0.8 (3h average).  FT now 3.5, CI
held higher at 4.5. Objective estimates vary: ADT remains higher at 82kn (1min)
based on CI=4.7 which is rapidly reducing, while AiDT has fallen faster to 77kn
(1min) equivalent to 70kn (10min). SATCON N/A.

The wind structure is highly asymmetric (larger east of the centre) as the
system moves south at 22kn, as shown on scatterometry including ASCAT-B at
1120UTC, while microwave shows the strongest convection east of the centre.

The system is being steered by a mid-level ridge over the eastern Pacific Ocean
and an approaching upper trough from the west with high confidence based on
strong agreement amongst the range of models.

Although Dovi is being favoured by a low wind shear environment and strong
upper level outflow to the south, it is now moving over water temperatures less
than 25C.

The structure is reorganising with a strong to gale force synoptic southerly
flow to the west forecast to merge with the circulation within +6h resulting in
large region of gales about the circulation. This is coincident with the
circulation transitioning into a sub-tropical system under the influence of an
upper level trough from the west. This should ensure that the intensity remains
higher than tropical satellite metrics.

The forecast track is truncated as the system loses its tropical
characteristics, but it is likely to continue to move towards the North Island
of New Zealand.

These bulletins will no longer be provided as Norfolk Island no longer is
expecting gales.

REMARKS:
Tropical cyclone Anika has been upgraded to category two intensify as it makes
landfall on the north Kimberley coast.

The system has been located by Wyndham radar and an SSMIS microwave pass at
0950UTC.

Satellite imagery in the last 6 hours has been characterised by strong
convective pulses over the LLCC. A tight temperature gradient and sharp edge on
the eastern side of the cloud tops indicates the continuing influence of
easterly deep layer shear. Microwave imagery in the last 6 hours has shown
tighter curvature wrapping around the LLCC to almost fully enclose the system.

Dvorak analysis is based mainly on MET and PAT because cloud features were not
clear cut due to a cirrus shield covering the system. MET is 3.0 based on a 24
hour D- trend, and PAT agrees. Final T 3.0. Intensity is raised to 50 knots (10
minute mean) based on the improved structure seen in microwave and a steady
increase in all the objective intensity aids.

CIMSS satellite winds depict diffluent upper level flow over Anika, with dual
outflow channels. The analysed deep layer shear has remained consistent at
approximately 15-20 knots, with a shear minimum further south along the
forecast track. SSTs are favourable in excess of 30 degrees. There is some
drier air to the south over the Australian continent but this should not be a
mitigating factor to development in the short term. However now that Anika is
making landfall, it is expected to begin a period of weakening in the next
24-48 hours.

The steering influences on Anika include a mid-level anticyclone over Western
Australia, and lower level monsoonal westerly flow to the north. Given these
opposing influences, Anika has been slow moving thus far. As the system moves
south, the mid-level anticyclone is expected to become the dominant steering
influence and Anika is forecast to track to the west southwest. Later in the
week, an approaching upper trough is expected to move the system towards the
southeast.

The medium to long term intensity forecast is based on the forecast track
moving offshore from the Kimberley and reaching category 3 in favourable
conditions. If it moves further west and offshore, further strengthening is
likely and Anika could reach category 4 intensity.
