    REMARKS:
    Seroja has not significantly developed overnight with the deepest convection removed well to the south of the system. The latest Dvorak analysis was based on
    a curved band pattern with a 0.3-0.4 degree wrap, giving a DT of 2.0-2.5. MET and PAT were both 2.5. The CI has now been lowered to 2.5, though based on
    SCAT
    scatterometry at 1324UTC and the expectation that the system will intensify once again Seroja has been maintained as a tropical cyclone.

    It is expected that Seroja should intensify into the weekend with the system expected to be situated in an environment conducive for development with lowering vertical wind shear and warm sea surface temperatures. There is the potential for Seroja to reach category 3 intensity over the weekend with a poleward outflow channel expected to develop due to an approaching upper trough to the west of the system. The intensification process of Seroja may be complicated or enhanced by the close proximity of the system to tropical low 23U during today and into Saturday.

    Tropical cyclone Seroja is forecast to track towards the southwest over open waters, north of Western Australia, during today and into Saturday under the influence of a mid-level high situated to the east of the system. Into Sunday, Seroja is expected to turn to the southeast due to an approaching mid-latitude trough from the west and track towards the west coast of Western Australia before making landfall during late Sunday or early Monday between Carnarvon and Jurien Bay.
