The latest report from Fiji's Meteorological Service says Cyclone Fili remains a category two cyclone close to New Caledonia, moving south-east at about six knots.

Earlier this morning Fili was positioned off the north-west coast of Grande Terre at 21.6 degrees south, 164.1 degrees east.

The forecasters say it is bringing sustained winds of 55 knots, or just over 100 kilometres an hour, close to its centre.

It is forecast to weaken to a Category One storm by Friday.

All vessels within 300 nautical miles of the centre of Cyclone Fili are requested to send reports every three hours to the RSMC Nadi Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre.
