An explosive eyewall convection is now wrapping around the clearing eye of a Category 2 Tropical Cyclone #Sarai

Daylight has arrived over the Tropical cyclone #Sarai which is continuing to improve – a clearing eye with explosive deep convection is now wrapping around the eye. Poleward upper-level outflow ventilation is contributing to its evolution, allowing it to continue intensifying. Sarai is definitely gaining additional strength this morning. The Sarai’s center is staying well offshore of the main island Viti Levu, but its big wind radii extend quite far from the exact center. It is undoubtedly severely impacting the Kadavu island, located just to the northeast of the eye and under the explosive easterly eyewall.

NEW UPDATE: Category 2 Tropical Cyclone #Sarai continues to drift eastward just south of #Fiji archipelago, expected to pass very near #Tonga for the New Year

Some exceptionally impressive satellite imagery is coming out, notice the explosive eyewall wrapping around the clearing eye across the NE and SE quadrants of the cyclone! Cloud tops are being pushed below -80 °C!






Cyclone’s future direction remains on track with the previous discussion, it will gradually turn east in the next 24 hours and tavel across the southern part of Fij archipelago.


Stay alert for dangerous weather conditions.
