ARE BASED ON 290530Z9 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY, 290042Z7
MICROWAVE SATELLITE IMAGERY AND ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY. 290000Z1 SURFACE ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM HAS
GENERATED FROM A VORTICITY MAXIMUM IN THE MONSOON TROUGH SOUTHEAST
OF DIEGO GARCIA. THE SYSTEM IS BEING STEERED BY THE LOWER-
TROPOSHERIC RIDGE TO ITS SOUTH THUS MAINTAINING A WESTWARD TRACK
FOR THE ENTIRE PERIOD. TD 02S IS UNDER LIGHT TO MODERATE VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR AND IS NOT EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY GREATLY FOR THE ENTIRE
FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 290600Z7 IS 12
FEET. REFER TO WWIO30 PGFW FOR ADDITIONAL SEA HEIGHT INFORMATION.

TO TRACK TOWARDS THE WEST-SOUTHWEST OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS.  THE
WARNING POSITION AND INTENSITY ARE BASED ON 291130Z6 VISIBLE
SATELLITE IMAGERY.  291130Z6 VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWED AN
EXPOSED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION WITH THE NEAREST CONVECTION
APPROXIMATELY 20NM TO WEST. ANIMATION INDICATES THE VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR HAS WEAKENED SLIGHTLY OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS.  THE FORECAST
PHILOSOPHY REMAINS SIMILAR AS TC 02S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
TRACKING TOWARDS THE WEST-SOUTHWEST THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD.
THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY SLIGHTLY THROUGH THE 24 HOUR
PERIOD AS SHEAR IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN.  AFTERWARDS, TC 02S IS
FORECAST TO WEAKEN DUE TO INCREASED SHEAR. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE

SHEAR AND THE SYSTEM=S DEEP CONVECTION IS SHEARED TO THE SOUTHEAST
OF ITS LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION. TROPICAL CYCLONE 02S IS FORECAST TO
REMAIN IN AN AREA OF MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND COOLER SEA
