REMARKS:
Severe Tropical Cyclone Niran continues its rapid east southeast track and has
now reached category 5 intensity having a well defined eye surrounded by very
deep convection.

Intensity estimated at 110kn based on Dvorak CI=6.5 based on DT=6.5-7.0 using
time averaged eye pattern W to CMG surround and 0.5 adjustment; MET at 6.5 [D
1.5/24HRS]. CIMSS ADT at 6.3 although recent raw T-nos at 7.0 and SATCON
increasing to 130kn [1min averaged].

The wind structure is based upon a combination of ASCAT and earlier SMAP and
SMOS passes confirming the large extent of gales northeast of the centre.

Northerly shear is increasing -CIMSS indicates 20kn as upper level northwesterly
winds extend over the centre. While this shear will increase and weaken the
system, model guidance shows a vertically stacked system remaining through the
next 12-18 hours and hence it is possible some further intensification occurs
overnight supported by sea surface termpatures above 28C and the strong outflow
channels poleward.

There is high confidence that the system will maintain an east-southeast track
passing near New Caledonia on Saturday. This motion will continue as a result of
an upper
trough that is currently moving across eastern Australia.

The circulation should then be weakening under northwesterly shear and cooler
SSTs.

As Niran will cross 160E before 1800UTC, responsibility is now passed to Fiji
RSMC.

REMARKS:
At 3:30am CST Sunday, the remnants of tropical cyclone Trevor were located by
satellite over land around 320km inland from the southwestern coast of the Gulf
of Carpentaria. Deep convection is now completely absent from the central
circulation, with the nearest convective band displaced some 120 nautical miles
to the east.

Dvorak analysis is not possible with the system over land. There is currently
little in the way of peripheral observations. McArthur River Mine, some 250km to
the north of the current position, was the last station to experience marginal
category 1 wind gusts prior to 8pm CST Saturday. Standard decay rates suggest
the system would be close to or below TC thresholds. Intensity is therefore set
at 30 knots.

NWP models are in good agreement with a southwest track initially, steered by
the mid level subtropical ridge. The system will be steered to the south during
Sunday as an approaching shortwave trough weakens the ridge. The remnants of the
cyclone will track southeast on Monday towards Queensland.
