REMARKS:
Gabrielle has been reclassified as a sub-tropical system based on satellite
signature, wind structure, and modelled position in the cyclone phase space as
a shallow asymmetric warm cored system. Hence conventional Dvorak is no longer
applicable to the intensity nor standard objective TC aids.

Gabrielle passed within 30km of Norfolk Island which reported a minimum
pressure of 958.1hPa at 11UTC Saturday. Fortunately Norfolk Is evaded the
highest winds, the airport recording only near-gales and maximum wind gust 102
km/h (55 knots) at 0336UTC on Saturday.

The current wind intensity (55kn) and wind structure are based primarily on
model guidance which is quite consistent and agrees with recent ASCAT-B at
1030UTC having partial coverage of western sectors.

The synoptic environment is unfavourable to sustain a true tropical cyclone as
strong wind shear persists and the system is now over SSTs below 25C, and
moving into even cooler SST. Gradual weakening is forecast although baroclinic
processes provided by the upper trough to the west is sustaining the system.

Observed winds at Norfolk Island have eased as the system moves away, mirroring
model guidance trends of rapid weakening in the western quadrants overnight.
Gales are no longer expected to affect the island.

Gabrielle will remain a robust circulation into Monday and Tuesday as it moves
closer to New Zealand.

REMARKS:
Ex-Tropical Cyclone Ellie (06U) has weakened below tropical cyclone strength
over land. Land observations near the path indicate gales are no longer
occurring near the system. Satellite imagery indicates a small tight
circulation persists but deep convection near the centre is mostly gone. Heavy
rainfall is still expected near the centre as it continues to track south over
land.

Model guidance supports the system retaining a coherent circulation a long way
inland, which could bring heavy rainfall to inland parts of the Northern
Territory.

In the longer term, there is some uncertainty in model guidance with the most
likely scenario is for the centre to start tracking to the northwest from
Tuesday, taking is across the Kimberley in northern Western Australia.
