He's done very well considering what he had to play with and the fact he stayed as a Cat 1 for his whole existence..

Details of Ex-Tropical Cyclone Caleb at 8:00 am AWST:

Intensity: tropical low, sustained winds near the centre of 65 kilometres per hour with wind gusts to 95 kilometres per hour.
Location: within 55 kilometres of 15.6 degrees South, 97.7 degrees East , 390 kilometres south southeast of Cocos Island .
Movement: west northwest at 8 kilometres per hour .

Ex-Tropical Cyclone Caleb has weakened below cyclone intensity over open waters well to the south of the Cocos (Keeling) Islands.

Gales are continuing on the southern side of the system, however it is not expected to redevelop into a tropical cyclone. Ex-TC Caleb will track steadily westwards over the coming days, and should move west of 090E late on Wednesday or on Thursday.

Ex-Tropical Cyclone Caleb is now below tropical cyclone intensity.

The system was located using a combination of microwave imagery, ASCAT and
visible satellite imagery.

There is no longer any deep convection around the system, with the low level
centre exposed. An ASCAT pass from 1524UTC showed gales were confined to the
southwestern quadrant of the system. Model guidance is consistent with
maintaining this structure as the system tracks west, with gales remaining in
the southern semicircle and no likelihood of it reintensifying into a tropical
cyclone.

Dvorak analysis is difficult with no pattern match due to lack of any deep
convection. Trend was W, with MET/PAT at 1.5. FT is 1.5 with CI held at 2.0.

The system intensity is 35 knots, due to gales on the southwestern side which
are occurring as a result of the pressure gradient between the system and a high
pressure ridge to the south.

The system will track steadily westwards over the coming days. Gales may presist
to the south of the system during Tuesday and some of Wednesday. The system
should then pass west of 090E late Wednesday or during Thursday.

This the last track of TC Caleb who died off between 8pm last night and 8am this morning .There is no longer any deep convection around the system, with the low level
centre exposed.

He was a little fighter alright and will be sadly missed by all those who tracked him...

p.s Please no flowers cry smile
