Strengthening expected in the near future where it's likely to become a cyclone. The south pacific has been inactive since late April but there are cyclones in this area that form towards the end of the year (last being 2003).

Looks like going by category 3 tomorrow!!!!!11 Awesome first severe TC of the non seasonal time! That is horrible for early signs for our wet. El Nino does nothing to do with it, i am confused!

Now at cat 2 on the saffir simpson scale. Certainly is surprising Doh a dumb swear filter got the better of me Intensifying very quickly, who knows what Xavier can achieve! :)

I agree SH, very nasty, wouldn't be surprised to see a Category 5 out of this one. Certainly has bombed very fast!

Welcome to Aussie Forums! :o

Is the new TC nearer to Australia? I see Xavier is coming to an end now, has undergone rapid weakening in the past 24 hours. But 234.9km/hr? I finding that hard to believe! :)
