Quite aside from it being a cyclone or not, I find it fascinating that a weather system like this has a "life" as such, identifiable over long periods of time and travels.

You're not wrong and life does appear to be breathing back into her (if I have it right), plenty of convection on satview but TPW animation shows a lot of dry air to her south and comin up fast.
Hang in there baby

APPROXIMATELY 436 NM NORTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA. ANIMATED
MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS CONSOLIDATING BANDING
WRAPPING INTO A WELL-DEFINED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. A PARTIAL
102341Z METOP-A 89GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS WELL ORGANIZED LOW LEVEL
STRUCTURE AND DEEP CONVECTION. RMNTS 17P IS EXPERIENCING LOW
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (5-10 KT), AND STRONG DIVERGENCE ALOFT AND BOTH
POLEWARD AND EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW ARE FUELING CONVECTION. SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES ARE WARM (28-29C) AND ARE CONDUCIVE TO DEVELOPMENT.
SOME GLOBAL MODELS PREDICT RMNTS 17P TURNING SOUTHWESTWARD AND
REDEVELOPING INTO A TROPICAL CYCLONE IN THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS,
THOUGH NOT ALL MAINTAIN THE CIRCULATION. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE
WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 20 TO 25 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS
ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1004 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A
SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS REMAINS MEDIUM.

Total Precipitable Water is not looking good for Iris as the dry air pushes north over the coral sea, however she looks brilliant on the satellite so maybe the warm SSTs will push that dry air away.

Good riddance I say. It did nothing but continue the extended dry spell we are going through. Not a drop of rain from it.

Hard to believe isn't it. One of the most impressive systems ever(if somewhat underwhelming). What a stayer.
