1. IMMEDIATE DELIVERY REQ TO AMEMBASSY PORT LOUIS
2. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 280 NM RADIUS OF 11.1S3 88.1E7 WITHIN THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS.
AVAILABLE DATA DOES NOT JUSTIFY ISSUANCE OF NUMBERED TROPICAL
CYCLONE WARNINGS AT THIS TIME. WINDS IN THE AREA ARE ESTIMATED TO
BE 25 TO 30 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY AT 010600Z7 INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 10.7S8 88.5E1.  THE SYSTEM IS
QUASI-STATIONARY.
3. REMARKS: ANIMATED VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES A LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION BENEATH A PERSISTENT AND INCREASINGLY ORGANIZED AREA OF
DEEP CONVECTION. MULTIPLE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATIONS MAY ALSO EXIST.
UW-CIMSS WATER VAPOR CHARTS INDICATE GOOD OUTFLOW ALOFT. ANIMATED
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATES WEAK WESTWARD VERTICAL SHEAR OVER THE
REGION. A 281600Z7 SCATTEROMETER PASS INDICATED A NEARLY CLOSED
CIRCULATION WITH THE MAXIMUM WINDS OVER THE SOUTHWEST QUADRANT AT
AROUND 25 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURES ARE ESTIMATED NEAR
1003 M

TROPICAL CYCLONE 25S HAS BEEN RELOCATED DUE TO THE AVAILABILITY OF
VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY AND HAS TRACKED TOWARDS THE SOUTH AT 4
KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
030530Z1 VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED
ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T3.0 (45 KNOTS) AND
T2.0 (30 KNOTS). THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION ASSOCIATED WITH TC 25S
REMAINS EXPOSED TO THE EAST OF THE PRIMARY CONVECTION. THE SYSTEM
REMAINS WITHIN WEAK STEERING FLOW BETWEEN MODERATE EQUATORIAL
WESTERLIES AND A LARGE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. OVER THE
PAST 24 HOURS, TC 25S HAS REMAINED BETWEEN THESE TWO STEERING
INFLUENCES, CAUSING THE SYSTEM TO REMAIN QUASI-STATIONARY WITH AN
ERRATIC TRACK. TC 25S IS FORECAST TO BE PRIMARILY STEERED BE THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. TC 25S IS FORECAST TO SLOWLY MOVE
SOUTH THEN SOUTHWEST DURING THE NEXT 12 HOURS. AFTERWARDS, TC 25S
IS FORECAST TO ACCELERATE AND TRACK TOWARDS THE WEST-SOUTHWEST
DURING THE REMAINDER OF THE 48 HOUR FORECAST PERIOD. THE SYSTEM
REMAINS UNDER MODERATE WESTWARD VERTICAL SHEAR. THE SHEAR WEAKENS,
HOWEVER, WEST OF THE SYSTEM. A HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE ABOVE TC 25S HAS
ALLOWED OUTFLOW TO REMAIN FAIR, ESPECIALLY TOWARDS THE WEST. TC 25S
IS FORECAST TO SLOWLY INTENSIFY DURING THE NEXT 36 HOUR. THE SYSTEM
IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY QUICKER AFTER THAT PERIOD. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 030600Z IS 13 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT

REMARKS:
042100Z7 POSITION NEAR 13.4S8  86.4E8. TROPICAL CYCLONE 25S
(DAVINA) IS MOVING SOUTHWESTWARD AT 12 KNOTS.  THE SYSTEM HAS
INTENSIFIED OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS.  INTENSIFICATION SHOULD
CONTINUE BECAUSE THE UPPER LEVEL SHEAR HAS LESSENED AND 25S IS
EXPECTED TO REMAIN IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT UNDERNEATH THE
200MB RIDGE.  THE STRONG, MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE
SOUTH CONTINUES TO DOMINATE THE STEERING, BUT WE HAVE MOVED THE
TRACK NORTH OF THE PREVIOUS FORECAST AND SPED IT UP BECAUSE
DYNAMIC MODELS SHOWS THIS RIDGE BECOMING EVEN STRONGER.  THIS
TRACK IS ALSO CONSISTENT WITH AVAILABLE DYNAMIC TRACK GUIDENCE.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 041800Z3 IS 17 FEET.
NEXT WARNINGS AT 050900Z4 (DTG 050753Z0) AND 052100Z8 (DTG

REMARKS:
050900Z4 POSITION NEAR 13.6S0 82.6E6.  RELOCATED
TROPICAL CYCLONE 25S (DAVINA) IS MOVING WESTWARD AT 19 KNOTS.
ANIMATED VISIBLE IMAGERY SUGGESTS AN EYE IS FORMING AND THAT
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR PREVIOUSLY INHIBITING DEVELOPMENT HAS WEAKENED.
DESPITE RECENT WARMING OF CLOUD TOP TEMPERATURES, TC 25S HAS
INCREASED IN ORGANIZATION AND IS AT TYPHOON INTENSITY. THE WARNING
POSITION AND INTENSITY ARE BASED ON 050530Z3 VISIBLE AND INFRARED
SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T3.5 (55 KNOTS) AND T4.0 (65 KNOTS).
NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGES TO PREVIOUS FORECAST REASONING. TROPICAL
CYCLONE 25S (DAVINA) IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING WESTWARD TO
WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AND DECREASE ITS TRANSLATIONAL SPEED THROUGHOUT
THE FORECAST PERIOD UNDER THE ENVIRONMENTAL STEERING INFLUENCE OF
THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. ALL DYNAMIC AND THE MAJORITY OF
STATISTICAL OBJECTIVE GUIDANCE SUPPORTS THIS TRACK FORECAST SCENARIO.
TC 25S (DAVINA) IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST
PERIOD AS ITS UPPER-LEVEL OUTFLOW INCREASES IN ORGANIZATION AND
EASTERLY VERTICAL SHEAR CEASES. WIND RADII ARE SLIGHTLY ADJUSTED
OUTWARD DUE TO VISIBLE SATELLITE ANALYSIS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT

TROPICAL CYCLONE 25S (DAVINA) IS MOVING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 18
KNOTS IN THE SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN. THE SYSTEM HAS CONTINUED TO
DEVELOP AND HAS A SMALL (20 NM) CLOUD FILLED EYE. TC 25S IS BEING
STEERED BY THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO ITS SOUTH, AND SHOULD CONTINUE
TO MOVE SOUTH OF WEST FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. WE
ARE FORECASTING CONTINUED DEVELOPMENT WITH A PEAK INTENSITY OF 130
KNOTS WITHIN 24 HOURS, AS THERE IS CURRENTLY NOTHING IN THE UPPER
LEVELS TO STOP INTENSIFICATION. A WEAKENING TO 100 KNOTS IS
FORECAST AFTER 24 HOURS, BECAUSE SUCH EXTREME INTENSITIES ARE NOT
TYPICALLY SUSTAINABLE FOR A LONG TIME. HOWEVER, 25S SHOULD REMAIN

IMAGERY INDICATES THIS SYSTEM HAS MAINTAINED ITS INTENSITY (100
KTS) AND IT=S RAGGED EYE FEATURE. ANIMATION ALSO INDICATES A SLIGHT
INCREASE IN VERTICAL WINDSHEAR ON THE EASTERN SIDE OF THE CYCLONE.
THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON A COMBINATION OF FIX LOCATIONS
FROM LA-REUNION, AFWA, DIEGO GARCIA, AND JTWC. THE WARNING
INTENSITY (100 KTS) IS ALSO BASED ON A COMBINATION OF INFRARED
SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 77-102 KTS. TROPICAL CYCLONE 25S
(DAVINA) IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE MOVING GENERALLY WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD IN THE ENVIRONMENTAL
STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. THE
DYNAMIC MODELS ARE ALSO IN AGREEMENT WITH THIS GENERAL TRACK. TC
25S IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY AT A SLOWER RATE DUE TO THE INCREASE
IN VERTICAL WINDSHEAR. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 061800Z5

TROPICAL CYCLONE 25S (DAVINA) HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 15 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION AND INTENSITY (100 KTS) ARE
BASED ON 080530Z6 ANIMATED VISIBLE AND INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY.
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES INDICATE THE SYSTEM TO BE 102
KTS. SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THE EYE OF THE SYSTEM TO BE FILLING
WITH CLOUDS, AND LESS DISTINGUISHABLE. INFRARED IMAGERY ALSO SHOWS
THAT THE WESTERN SIDE OF THE SYSTEM IS BEING ELONGATED AS IT IS
MOVING INTO INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. TC 25S (DAVINA) IS
FORECAST TO MOVE WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST UNDER
THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. TC
25S IS EXPECTED TO MAINTAIIN ITS INTENSITY THROUGH 24 HOURS, THEN
BEGIN TO WEAKEN SLOWLY DUE TO THE INCREASE IN VERTICAL WINDSHEAR.
WIND RADII ARE FORECAST TO SLOWLY DECREASE THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST
PERIOD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 080600Z4 IS 26 FEET. NEXT
WARNINGS AT 082100Z1 (DTG 081953Z6) AND 090900Z8 (DTG 090753Z4).

TROPICAL CYCLONE 25S (DAVINA) HAS TRACKED TOWARDS THE WEST-
SOUTHWEST AT 17 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION
IS BASED ON EXTRAPOLATION FROM A 090433Z9 MICROWAVE IMAGER PASS.
THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON A SATELLITE CURRENT INTENISTY
ESTIMATE OF T5.5 (102 KNOTS). TC 25S (DAVINA) HAS CONTINUED TO
TRACK UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE
SOUTH-SOUTHEAST. THE SYSTEM IS ENTERING INTO A WEAKNESS BETWEEN THE
CURRENT STEERING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AND A EASTWARD BUILDING RIDGE
WELL TO THE SOUTHWEST OF THE SYSTEM. THIS ENVIRONMENT IS EXPECTED
TO SLOW THE FORWARD MOVEMENT OF THE SYSTEM WHILE CONTINUING ON
A WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK. TC 25S (DAVINA) IS EXPECTED TO
EVENTUALLY MOVE INTO THE STEERING FLOW OF THE EASTWARD BUILDING
SUBTROPICAL. TC 25S (DAVINA) IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE ON A WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK DURING THE INITIAL 24 TO 36 HOUR PERIOD.
AFTERWARDS, THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO BEGIN TRACKING MORE WESTWARD
IN RESPONSE TO THE NEW STEERING FLOW FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE
FORECAST PERIOD. INCREASING VERTICAL SHEAR AND INTERACTION WITH
NEARBY ISLANDS IS EXPECTED TO SLOWLY BEGIN WEAKENING TC 25S (DAVINA)
DURING THE ENTIRE FORECAST PERIOD. AN ALTERNATE SCENARIO WOULD TAKE
TC 25S (DAVINA) THROUGH THE WEAKNESS BETWEEN THE RIDGES AND ON MORE
OF A SOUTHWARD TRACK AS IT ROUNDS THE WESTERN AXIS OF THE CURRENT
STEERING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT

BASED UPON 091730Z0 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY
IS BASED UPON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 90 KNOTS.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 25S (DAVINA) CONTINUES TO TRACK WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD
UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE

REMARKS:
102100Z4 POSITION NEAR 22.9S3 53.4E2. TROPICAL CYCLONE 25S (DAVINA)
HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 12 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS.
THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 101700Z9 INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY AND AN EARLIER (101330Z8) TROPICAL RAINFALL MEASUREMENT
MISSION MICROWAVE IMAGER PASS. THE WARNING INTENSITY (80 KTS) IS
BASED ON A COMBINATION OF SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF
T4.0 (65 KTS) AND T5.0 (90 KTS). TC 25S (DAVINA) HAS CONTINUED TO
TRACK UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE
SOUTHEAST. TC 25S (DAVINA) HAS SLOWED SLIGHTLY OVER THE PAST 24
HOURS AS IT MOVES INTO A WEAKNESS BETWEEN THE CURRENT STEERING
RIDGE AND ANOTHER EASTWARD BUILDING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE WEST.
ANIMATED WATER VAPOR SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES AN AREA OF UPPER-
LEVEL WESTERLY WINDS JUST SOUTH OF MADAGASCAR. ANIMATION ALSO SHOWS
HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS OVER TC25S BEGINNING TO MOVE TO THE SOUTHEAST IN
THIS UPPER-LEVEL WESTERLY FLOW. TC 25S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE ON A
SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK THROUGHOUT THE PERIOD UNDER THE PRIMARY
STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE EAST. AFTER
36HRS, TC 25S IS FORECAST TO BEGIN SHEARING AS IT MOVES FURTHER
SOUTH AND BEGINS TO INTERACT WITH THE MID-LATITUDE WESTERLIES. AS
THE SHEARING SEPARATES THE CONVECTION FROM THE LOW-LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC), THE LLCC SHOULD REMAIN JUST SOUTH OF
MADAGASCAR AS AN EXPOSED LLCC. THERE IS A POOR PROBABILITY TC25S
COULD TRACK FURTHER SOUTHWARD AND RAPIDLY MOVE OUT WITH THE
CONVECTION TOWARDS THE SOUTHEAST AS IT BEGINS INTERACTING WITH THE
MID-LATITUDE WESTERLY FLOW. INCREASING VERTICAL WINDSHEAR COMBINED
WITH LAND INTERACTION FROM MADAGASCAR IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE
WEAKENING TC 25S (DAVINA) THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 101800Z0 IS 25 FEET. REFER TO WWIO31
PGFW FOR ADDITIONAL SEA HEIGHT INFORMATION. NEXT WARNINGS AT

THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE SOUTHWEST OF THE SYSTEM. THE RIDGE TO
THE SOUTHWEST HAS NOT BUILT AS FAR EAST AS PREVIOUSLY FORECASTED IN
ORDER TO STEER THE ENTIRE SYSTEM FURTHER WEST. TC 25S (DAVINA) IS
FORECAST TO SLOWLY TRACK SOUTHWESTWARD DURING THE FIRST 24 HOURS.
AS INCREASING SHEAR BEGINS TO INTERACT WITH THE SYSTEM, LOWER LEVEL
STEERING FLOW SHOULD BEGIN TO AGAIN TRACK THE WEAKENING SYSTEM (LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER) ON A WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK. A LARGE
PORTION OF THE CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH THE SYSTEM MAY BEGIN TO
SHEAR TOWARDS THE EAST-SOUTHEAST IN RESPONSE TO STRONGER UPPER
LEVEL WESTERLY FLOW CURRENTLY SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM. TC 25S (DAVINA)
IS FORECAST TO SLOWLY WEAKEN DURING THE INITIAL 36 HOURS OF THE

TROPICAL CYCLONE 25S (DAVINA) HAS TRACKED EASTWARD AT 2 KNOTS OFF
THE EAST COAST OF MADAGASCAR OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING
POSITION IS BASED UPON 131730Z5 ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY.
THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED UPON SHIP OBSERVATIONS AND IS
CONSISTENT WITH 131438Z0 MICROWAVE IMAGERY ANALYSIS. ANIMATED
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY CONTINUES TO SHOW TC 25S IS A TOTALLY
EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER WITH THE DEEP CONVECTION
SHEARED WELL TO THE SOUTHEAST. TROPICAL CYCLONE 25S IS EMBEDDED IN
WEAK STEERING FLOW DUE TO A COMBINATION OF A LOW LEVEL RIDGE TO THE
NORTHEAST AND A MID-LEVEL RIDGE BUILDING IN FROM THE SOUTH OF THE
SYSTEM. TROPICAL CYCLONE 25S IS FORECAST TO TRACK IN A SLOW CYCLONIC
LOOP AS THE STEERING INFLUENCE FROM THE RIDGE BUILDING IN FROM THE
SOUTH BEGINS TO BECOME DOMINANT. ALTHOUGH TC 25S CONTINUES TO
EXPERIENCE HIGH VERTICAL WIND SHEAR, THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION IS
SPINNING DOWN SLOWER THAN ANTICIPATED. HOWEVER, A 131553Z8 MICROWAVE
IMAGE INDICATES THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION IS WEAKENING, AND TC 25S
IS FORECAST TO DISSIPATE OVER WATER BY THE 24 HOUR FORECAST POSITION.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 131800Z3 IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS
AT 140900Z4 (DTG 140753Z0) AND 142100Z8 (DTG 141953Z3). REFER TO

TROPICAL CYCLONE 25S (DAVINA) HAS MOVED WESTWARD AT 2 KTS OFF THE
EAST COAST OF MADAGASCAR OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. THE WARNING
POSITION IS BASED UPON 140530Z2 ANIMATED VISIBLE AND INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED UPON SATELLITE
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 25 KTS AND THE TIGHT WRAPPING OF THE
LOW LEVEL CLOUDS AROUND THE CIRCULATION CENTER. ANIMATED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS TC 25S IS A TOTALLY EXPOSED LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER WITH ALL OF THE DEEP CONVECTION SHEARED OFF TO
THE EAST. TROPICAL CYCLONE 25S (DAVINA) HAS CEASED ITS CYCLONIC
MOVEMENT OF THE PAST 2 DAYS AND BEGUN TO MOVE TO THE WEST AS THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AT LOWER LEVELS HAS BUILT IN TO THE SOUTH, GIVING
IT A MORE DEFINED STEERING FLOW. THIS STEERING FLOW WILL KEEP THE
SYSTEM TRACKING WESTWARD FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS. TC 25S CONTINUES TO
EXPERIENCE HIGH VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND IS DISSIPATING OVER WATER.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 140600Z1 IS 14 FEET. NEXT
WARNINGS AT 142100Z8 (DTG 141953Z3). REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 27P
