Tropical Cyclone Kyarr, over the Arabian Sea about 402 NM ESE of Masirah Island has been moving WNW at 7 knots with max winds of 130 knots. Ocean temperatures remain warm at 28-29 C so Kyarr will remain over warm water for the short-term, however, after about 24 hours conditions will become less favorable and gradual weakening is expected.  After 48 hours a turn towards the southwest is also forecast but should remain at hurricane strength for several more days.   Estimated maximum significant wave height is 48 feet (14.6 meters).
