REMARKS:
100300Z4 POSITION 15.4S0  120.0E3
TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S IS MOVING WESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS. THE
WARNING POSITION AND INTENSITY ARE BASED ON 092330Z7 VISIBLE
AND INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THIS SYSTEM HAS DEVELOPED
RAPIDLY OVER THE LAST 06 HOURS WITH ABUNDANT DEEP CONVECTION
OVER THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER AND GOOD UPPER-LEVEL
OUTFLOW IN ALL QUADRANTS. THIS SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO MOVE
TOWARD THE WEST-SOUTHWEST UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A
WEAK SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S IS ANTICIPATED
TO INTENSIFY STEADILY THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD DUE TO
FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS AND LACK OF VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 100000Z1 IS 10 FEET.
NEXT WARNINGS AT 101500Z7 (DTG 101355Z5) AND 110300Z5
(DTG 110155Z3). REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 20S (ANACELLE)
WARNINGS (WTXS31 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES. REFER TO
TROPICAL CYCLONE 21S WARNING (WTXS32 PGTW) FOR THE FINAL

REMARKS:
101500Z7 POSITION 15.8S4 118.2E2
LATEST ANIMATED INFRARED SATTELITE IMAGERY SHOWS TROPICAL
CYCLONE 22S HAS INTENSIFIED SLIGHTLY OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS AND
IS MOVING TOWARDS THE WEST AT 10 KNOTS.  THE WARNING POSITION
IS BASED ON A COMBINATION OF 101130Z6 INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY AND 101056Z3 MICROWAVE IMAGERY.  THE CURRENT WIND RADII
IS BASED ON A 40 KNOT SHIP REPORT IN THE SURROUNDING AREA.
ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THE SYSTEM
REMAINS ORGANIZED, HOWEVER, THE CENTRAL CONVECTION APPEARS TO
BE FLUCTUATING IN INTENSITY AND AREAL CONVERAGE.  TROPICAL
CYCLONE 22S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE ON A MOSTLY WESTERLY TRACK
THROUGH THE 12 HOUR PERIOD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF HIGH PRESSURE
RIDGING TO THE SOUTH.  AS THE RIDGING IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN
THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST, TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S IS
FORECAST TO TRACK MORE IN A WEST-SOUTHWEST DIRECTION.  THE
SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY THROUGH THE 36 HOUR FORECAST.
AFTERWARDS IT IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN SLIGHTLY AS IT ENCOUNTERS
INCREASING WIND SHEAR.  MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
101200Z4 IS 13 FEET.  REFER TO WWIO31 PGFW FOR ADDITIONAL SEA
HEIGHT INFORMATION.  NEXT WARNINGS AT 110300Z5 (DTG 110155Z3)

REMARKS:
120300Z6 POSITION 14.8S3 112.5E9
TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S (VICTOR) HAS BEEN TRACKING WEST-
NORTHWESTWARD OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS
BASED UPON 112330Z0 VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY. ANIMATED SATELLITE
IMAGERY INDICATED THE CONSISTENT DEVELOPMENT OF CONVECTION OVER
THE SYSTEM CENTER ALONG WITH BETTER ORGANIZATION DURING THE PAST
6 TO 8 HOURS. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED UPON A SATELLITE
INTENSITY ESTIMATE OF 55 KNOTS. TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S (VICTOR) HAS
TAKEN A MORE WEST-NORTHWESTWARD TRACK DURING THE PAST 06 HOURS
DUE TO THE ORIENTATION OF RIDGING TO ITS SOUTH. AFTER 24 HOURS,
THE MOTION TRACK SHOULD TURN BACK MORE WESTERLY AND SLOW SOME
IN SPEED AS THE RIDGING TO THE SOUTH WEAKENS AND BECOMES MORE
EAST-WEST ORIENTED. THESE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS SHOULD ALLOW
THE SYSTEM TO INTENSIFY THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 120000Z IS 15 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT

REMARKS:
120900Z2 POSITION 14.8S3  112.1E5
TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S (VICTOR) FORWARD MOTION HAS SLOWED TO 08
KNOTS AND HAS TRACKED WESTWARD DURING THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE
WARNING POSITION IS BASED UPON 120532Z3 VISIBLE SATELLITE
IMAGERY FROM KGWC ANALYSTS. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED UPON
SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 55 AND 65 KNOTS. THE SYSTEM
SHOULD CONTINUE A GENERALLY WESTWARD MOTION TRACK FOR THE
FORECAST PERIOD AS RIDGING TO THE SOUTH IS STEERING THE SYSTEM.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S (VICTOR) IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO
INTENSIFY AS VERTICAL WIND SHEAR SHOULD REMAIN LOW AND SEA
SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE WARM ALONG THE FORECASTED TRACK.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 120600Z IS 15 FEET. NEXT

INTENSITY IS BASED UPON A COMBINATION OF SATELLITE INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 90 AND 102 KNOTS. THE SYSTEM SHOULD CONTINUE TO
TRACK WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD DUE TO
STEERING FROM THE SUB-TROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. THIS MID
LEVEL FLOW IS CAUSING TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S (VICTOR) TO MOVE
INTO SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE WHICH IS ORIENTED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD
TO EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD. THIS WILL PREVENT THE SYSTEM FROM
DEVELOPING ANY FURTHER, AND SHOULD BEGIN A SLIGHT WEAKENING
TREND BY THE 48 HOUR POSITION. THE SYSTEM=S FORWARD SPEED
SHOULD SLOW A LITTLE DURING THE FORECAST PERIOD DUE TO THE
INFLUENCE OF THE SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 130600Z IS 26 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
131500Z0 (DTG 131355Z8), 132100Z7 (DTG 131955Z4), 140300Z8 (DTG

LATEST INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S
(VICTOR) CONTINUES TO TRACK TOWARDS THE WEST AT 12 KNOTS. THE
WARNING POSITION AND INTENSITY ARE BASED ON 141130Z0 INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY. OVER THE PAST 3 HOURS, SATELLITE IMAGERY
SHOWS THE CENTRAL CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH TC22S HAS
DECREASED SIGNIFICANTLY IN AREAL COVERAGE. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY SHOWS THE SYSTEM HAS FAIR OUTFLOW IN ALL QUADRANTS.
HOWEVER, SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE ANALYSIS FROM THE NAVY=S
GLOBAL PREDICTION SYSTEM INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS MOVING INTO AN
AREA OF SIGNIFICANTLY COLDER WATER. TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S IS
FORECAST TO CONTINUE ON A MOSTLY WESTWARD TRACK THROUGH THE
FORECAST PERIOD. WATER VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATES A WEAKNESS IN
THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE HAS DEVELOPED WHICH WILL ALLOW THE SYSTEM
TO TRACK TOWARDS THE SOUTHWEST AT THE 48 HOUR PERIOD. THE
SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO MAINTAIN ITS INTENSITY THROUGH THE 12
HOUR PERIOD AND WEAKEN SLOWLY THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE
FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 141200Z8 IS
25 FEET. REFER TO WWIO31 PGFW FOR ADDITIONAL SEA HEIGHT

WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. DISSIPATION IS
EXPECTED WITHIN 36 HOURS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
170000Z IS 16 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 171500Z4 (DTG 171355Z2)

REMARKS:
171500Z4 POSITION 21.6S9   80.4E2
TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S (VICTOR) HAS BEEN TRACKING WESTWARD AT
11 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED
UPON 171131Z4 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE SYSTEM
SHOULD BEGIN A WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK DURING THE NEXT 12
HOURS AS IT IS BEING STEERED BY THE WESTERN MOST EXTENT OF THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE LOCATED TO THE SOUTH. A WEAKNESS IN THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE SHOULD DEVELOP DUE TO A PASSING MID-LATITUDE
DISTURBANCE BY THE 36 HOUR POSITION ALLOWING TROPICAL CYCLONE
22S (VICTOR) TO TURN MORE WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD. THE SYSTEM SHOULD
WEAKEN SLOWLY DUE TO VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND DISSIPATE OVER THE
WATER BY THE 36 HOUR POSITION. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT
AT 171200Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 180300Z2 (DTG 180155Z0)
AND 181500Z5 (DTG 181355Z3). REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE  23S

REMARKS:
180300Z2 POSITION 22.8S2   75.5E7
TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S (VICTOR) IS MOVING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT
17 KNOTS. THE SYSTEM IS MAINTAINING A LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION
WITH SPORADIC DEEP CONVECTION. IT IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN
EQUATORWARD OF THE RIDGE AXIS AND IN SOMEWHAT FAVORABLE
CONDITIONS THROUGH 48 HOURS. HENCE, THIS WARNING COVERS 48
HOURS VICE 36 HOURS. NEAR THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD, THE
SYSTEM IS ANTICIPATED TO BE APPROACHING COOLER SEA-SURFACE
TEMPERATURES. THEREFORE NO SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT IN INTENSITY
IS EXPECTED DURING THIS TIME. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT
AT 180000Z IS 13 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 181500Z5 (DTG 181355Z3)

REMARKS:
181500Z5 POSITION 26.1S9   74.6E7
TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S (VICTOR/CINDY) HAS BEEN TRACKING SOUTH-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 17 KNOTS FOR THE PAST 06 HOURS. VISIBLE AND
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THAT THE SYSTEM IS
BECOMING INCREASINGLY DISORGANIZED AND DIFFICULT TO LOCATE.
ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY ALSO INDICATES A SURFACE FRONT
APPROACHING FROM THE WEST. TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S (VICTOR/CINDY)
SHOULD TURN SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD DURING THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS
AS IT MERGES WITH THE SURFACE FRONT. THE SYSTEM SHOULD
DISSIPATE AS A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE OVER THE WATER BY
THE 24 HOUR POSITION. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
181200Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 190300Z3 (DTG 190155Z1).

REMARKS:
190300Z3 POSITION 29.0S1   074.9E0
TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S (VICTOR/CINDY) IS MOVING SOUTHWARD AT 15
KNOTS. THIS SYSTEM IS HARD TO DISCERN ON ANIMATED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY DUE TO ITS INTERACTION WITH A SURFACE FRONT
APPROACHING FROM THE WEST. TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S (VICTOR/CINDY)
IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE MOVING TOWARD THE SOUTH AND DISSIPATE
AS A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE OVER THE WATER BY THE 12 HOUR
FORECAST POSITION. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 190000Z0
IS 11 FEET. REFER TO WWIO30 PGFW FOR ADDITIONAL SEA HEIGHT
INFORMATION. THIS IS THE FINAL WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM BY THE
JOINT TYPHOON WARNING CENTER (NAVPACMETOCCEN WEST GU). THE
SYSTEM WILL BE CLOSELY MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF REGENERATION.
REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 24S WARNING (WTXS31 PGTW) FOR
THE FINAL WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM.//
