The tropical disturbance over the South Pacific yesterday has now been named Tropical Cyclone Dovi and is now located east-northeast of New Caledonia and is moving southeast at 5 knots with max winds of about 40 knots.







Dovi is forecast to move south-southeastward then southward after about 36 hours but should intensity to about 65 knots within 48 hours. Thereafter cooler sea surface temperatures will tend to weaken the system as it begins to transition into a subtropical cyclone.  On the forecast track, Dovi should pass east of New Caledonia about 1200 UTC on the 10th.
