SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT 260121Z MAR 99//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
120 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 12.8S1 111.9E2 TO 12.2S5
117.0E9 WITHIN THE NEXT 06 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 20 TO 25 KNOTS.
METSAT IMAGERY AT 260030Z1 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS
LOCATED NEAR 12.3S6 116.9E7.  THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 05 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS:
RECENT VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY NOW SHOWS CYCLONIC CURVATURE OF
LOW-LEVEL CU LINES STREAMING INTO THE DEEP CONVECTION, AN INDICATOR
OF THE FORMATION OF A LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. IMAGERY ALSO
INDICATES THE FORMATION OF AN UPPER-LEVEL ANTICYCLONE JUST WEST OF
THE CONVECTION CENTER. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A
SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS NOW GOOD.
3. THIS ALERT VALID UNTIL 270130Z3.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE 31S HAS DEVELOPED OFF NORTHWEST AUSTRALIA AND HAS
TRACKED TOWARDS THE SOUTHWEST AT 7 KNOTS. THE WARNING POSITION IS
BASED ON 260530Z6 VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY
IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T1.0 (25
KNOTS). DURING THE PAST 12 HOURS THIS SYSTEM HAS CONTINUED TO
DEVELOP AND INCREASE IN ORGANIZATION. INCREASED CONVECTIVE BANDING
AROUND THE CENTRAL CIRCULATION HAS BECOME MORE EVIDENT IN RECENT
ANIMATED VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY. TC 31S HAS TRACKED UNDER THE
STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH-SOUTHEAST
AND IS MOVING TOWARDS A WEAKNESS IN THIS RIDGE. THE SYSTEM IS
FORECAST TO CONTINUE ON A SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK DURING THE NEXT 24
HOURS, THEN TURN MORE WESTWARD OVER THE REMAINDER OF THE 72 HOUR
FORECAST AS THE RIDGE REBUILDS TO THE WEST. TC 31S IS CURRENTLY
WITHIN A REGION OF WEAK VERTICAL SHEAR AND GOOD OUTFLOW ALOFT.
THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO SLOWLY INTENSIFY DURING THE
ENTIRE FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
260600Z4 IS 9 FEET. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS

TROPICAL CYCLONE 31S HAS TRACKED TOWARDS THE WEST-SOUTWEST AT 12
KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
261130Z3 INFRARED AND MICROWAVE IMAGERY. SATELLITE ANALYSIS
SUGGESTS THAT NUMEROUS LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTERS (LLCC) MAY
EXIST BENEATH THE CONVECTION. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T1.0 (25 KNOTS). TC 31S
HAS CONTINUED TO TRACK UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH-SOUTHEAST. THE SYSTEM IF FORECAST
TO CONTINUE TRACKING TOWARDS THE WEST-SOUTWEST DURING THE INITIAL
24 HOURS. THE SYSTEM IS THEN FORECAST TO BEGIN TRACKING MORE
TOWARDS THE WEST AS THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE BUILDS SOUTH OF THE
SYSTEM. TC 31S HAS REMAINED AT A RELATIVELY CONSTANT INTENSITY
DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS, BUT THERE APPEARS TO BE SOME CONSOLIDATION
OF CONVECTION NEAR THE PRIMARY LLCC. THE SYSTEM REMAINS WITHIN A
REGION OF LOW VERTICAL SHEAR AND GOOD OUTFLOW ALOFT. TC 31S IS
FORECAST TO SLOWLY INTENSIFY DURING THE ENTIRE 72 HOUR FORECAST
PERIOD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 261200Z1 IS 10 FEET.

REMARKS:
271500Z5 POSITION NEAR 14.5S0 110.2E4. TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 31S HAS
TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 12 KNOTS SOUTH OF JAVA OVER THE PAST
06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION AND INTENSITY ARE BASED UPON 271130Z4
ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY WITH CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES
OF 30 KNOTS. ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES TC 31S CONTINUES
TO TRACK WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO ITS SOUTH. DEVELOPMENT HAS BEEN HINDERED BY
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR CAUSED BY A SHEAR LINE OVER WESTERN AUSTRALIA,
WHICH IS ADVECTING MUCH OF THE CONVECTION OFF TO THE SOUTHEAST.
DEVELOPMENT SHOULD INCREASE AS THE SYSTEM MOVES BACK INTO A LOWER
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ENVIRONMENT, AWAY FROM THE SHEAR LINE. CONVECTION
AROUND THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER REMAINS STRONG. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 271200Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT

APPROACHING A WEAKNESS IN THIS RIDGE. FURTHER EROSION OF THE RIDGE
BY THE SYSTEM COUPLED WITH THE SYSTEMS SELF PROPAGATION AND AN
APPROACHING MID-LATTITUDE TROUGH IS EXPECTED TO ALLOW TC 31S
(FREDERIC) TO BEGIN TAKING A MORE SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK THROUGHOUT
THE FORECAST PERIOD. ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS ARE FORECAST TO REMAIN
FAVORABLE FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS. AFTER
THIS PERIOD, TC 31S (FREDERIC) IS EXPECTED TO ENCOUNTER INCREASING
VERTICAL SHEAR WHICH SHOULD BEGIN WEAKENING THE SYSTEM THROUGHOUT
THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 311200Z IS 34 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 010300Z4 (DTG
010151Z8) AND 011500Z7 (DTG 011351Z1).//

TROPICAL CYCLONE 31S (FREDERIC)HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 07 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION AND INTENSITY ARE BASED UPON
312330Z2 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY WITH CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES
OF 155 AND 130 KNOTS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS
TC 31S NOW HAS A 10 NM DIAMETER EYE AND THE DEEP CONVECTION IS
BEGINNING TO ELONGATE DUE TO AN INCREASED SHEAR ENVIRONMENT.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 31S CONTINUES TO TRACK WESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING
INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO ITS SOUTH. SINCE THE ANIMATED
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATES THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE HAS DEEPENED TO
THE SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM, THE FORECAST TRACK IS NOW SLIGHTLY MORE
EQUATORWARD. HOWEVER, THE INTENSITY FORECAST REMAINS BASICALLY
UNCHANGED AND TC 31S SHOULD WEAKEN THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE
FORECAST PERIOD DUE TO AN INCREASE IN THE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 010000Z1 IS 34 FEET. NEXT

REMARKS:
011500Z7 POSITION NEAR 18.1S0   88.3E9.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 31S (FREDERIC/EVRINA) HAS TRACKED TOWARDS THE WEST-
SOUTHWEST AT 9 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION
IS BASED ON 011130Z6 SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS
BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T6.5 (127 KNOTS).
TC 31S (FREDERIC/EVRINA) HAS CONTINUED TO TRACK UNDER THE STEERING
INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTHEAST. THE SYSTEM HAS
MOVED INTO A WEAKNESS BETWEEN THE CURRENT RIDGE STEERING THE SYSTEM
AND ANOTHER RIDGE TO THE SOUTHWEST. INCREASED VERTICAL SHEAR HAS
BEGUN TO WEAKEN THE SYSTEM AND CAUSED THE EYE FEATURE TO FILL. THIS
VERTICAL SHEAR, COUPLED WITH THE ENTRAINMENT OF COLD AIR STRATUS
FROM THE SOUTH, IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE WEAKENING TC 31S
(FREDERIC/EVRINA) WHILE LOWERING THE LEVEL AT WHICH THE SYSTEM IS
STEERED. TC 31S (FREDERIC/EVRINA) IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE ON A WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK DURING THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS. THE SYSTEM IS
THEN FORECAST TO BEGIN TRACKING AGAIN TOWARDS THE WEST, POSSIBLY
SLIGHTLY EQUATORWARD, AS THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION BECOMES STEERED
BY THE PROMINANT LOWER LEVEL RIDGE TO THE SOUTHWEST. TC 31S
(FREDERIC/EVRINA) IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE WEAKENING THROUGHOUT THE
ENTIRE FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 011200Z4

HOWEVER, THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION IS BECOMING MORE DIFFICULT TO
PINPOINT USING INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY AS THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO
UNDERGO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. HENCE, THE INTEGRATION OF
VISUAL IMAGERY IN THE NEXT WARNING MAY LEAD TO A RELOCATION OF THE
