March 2021, with the next trajectory of remnants of the system towards northern coast, Northern Island, New Zealand.

Pressure in the middle of the system is expected to reach around 947 hPa on Friday, 5. March and system therefore should be stronger than Cyclone Marian, Category 4 /

New Caledonia will be hit in full power and it should be the worst cyclone of the season in the country, with possible fatalities and widespread damages.

Despite of Cyclone Niran and Marian, tropical depression 90S Invest shoud cause complications in Mauritius and Reunion these days, but overall, weakening of tropical ativity across Southern Hemisphere is expected until the start of April 2021.
