1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 275 NM RADIUS OF 8.8S6 133.8E5 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 20 TO 25 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY AT 040530Z INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 8.9S7 133.7E4.  THE SYSTEM IS
MOVING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 02 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: AN AREA OF CONVECTION IN THE ARAFURA SEA HAS BECOME
MORE ORGANIZED OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. A 040108Z3 SCATTEROMETER
PASS AND 040000Z4 SYNOPTIC SHIP OBSERVATIONS INDICATE WINDS OF
15 KNOTS AROUND THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. ADDITIONALLY,
THE SCATTEROMETER PASS SHOWS 20 TO 25 KNOT WESTERLY WINDS NORTH OF
THE DISTURBANCE. BOTH 200 MB ANALYSIS AND ANIMATED WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY INDICATE GOOD OUTFLOW ALOFT. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE
ESTIMATED AT 20 TO 25 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA SURFACE PRESSURE IS
ESTIMATED TO BE 1005 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A
SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS GOOD.

REMARKS:
052100Z8 POSITION NEAR  9.2S1  130.8E2.
TC 06S HAS BEEN RELOCATED FURTHER EAST. TROPICAL CYCLONE 06S IS A
VERY BROAD CIRCULATION AREA WITH WIDESPREAD DEEP CONVECTION. THE
AREA CONTINUES ON A WESTWARD TRACK  AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6
HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION AND INTENSITY (25 KTS) ARE
BASED ON  051730Z6 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES.
ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS TC 06S HAS BECOME BETTER
ORGANIZED AND INCREASED IN AREAL EXTENT OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. THIS
INCREASE IN AREAL EXTENT IS MAKING IT MORE DIFFICULT TO PINPOINT THE
CENTER OF THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR SATELLITE
IMAGERY AND UW-CIMSS 0501200Z8 WATER VAPOR WINDSHEAR PRODUCTS
INDICATE THE UPPER AIR ENVIRONMENT REMAINS FAVORABLE FOR FURTHER
DEVELOPMENT. TROPICAL CYCLONE 06S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO TRACK
WESTWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE LOCATED TO ITS
SOUTH. TC 06S SHOULD CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY SLOWLY OVER THE NEXT 48
HOURS AS THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO ORGANIZE OVER THE WARM WATERS NORTH
OF AUSTRALIA. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 051800Z4 IS 12
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 060900Z5 (DTG 060753Z1) AND 062100Z9 (DTG

TROPICAL CYCLONE 06S HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 2
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED
UPON 060530Z4 VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY, AND THE WARNING
INTENSITY IS BASED UPON A CURRENT SATELLITE INTENSITY
ESTIMATE OF 45 KNOTS. TROPICAL CYCLONE 06S CONTINUES TO
ORGANIZE OFF THE NORTH COAST OF AUSTRALIA. HOWEVER, CURRENT
ANIMATED INFRARED AND VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES
THAT ALTHOUGH TC 06S CONTINUES TO ORGANIZE, THE ASSOCIATED
LOW LEVELCIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) REMAINS BROAD IN NATURE.
SINCE THE BROAD NATURE OF THE LLCC MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO
PINPOINT THE LLCC LOCATION WITH VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY,
IT WILL BECOME EVEN MORE SO AS WE GO INTO NIGHTFALL AND
HAVE TO RELY ON INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. TROPICAL CYCLONE
06S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO TRACK WESTWARD UNDER THE

REMARKS:
062100Z9 POSITION NEAR 9.4S3 130.7E1.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 06S HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 02 KNOTS OVER THE PAST
6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION AND CURRENT INTENSITY (55KTS) ARE
BASED ON 061730Z7 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY ANALYSIS. TROPICAL
CYCLONE 06S CONTINUES TO ORGANIZE OFF THE NORTH COAST OF AUSTRALIA.
SATELLITE ANIMATION SHOWS THE SYSTEM HAS BECOME QUASI-STATIONARY AND
IS BEGINNING TO CONTRACT. THIS IS A GOOD INDICATION OF INCREASING
INTENSITY. AS IT CONTINUES TO CONTRACT AND BECOME MORE ORGANIZED THE
ASSOCIATED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) SHOULD BECOME EASIER
TO LOCATE. UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN DIVERGENCE CHARTS AND ANIMATED
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATE UPPER-LEVEL DIVERGENCE HAS INCREASED
OVER THE PAST SEVERAL HOURS AND OUTFLOW HAS IMPROVED. THEY ALSO
INDICATE MINIMAL VERTICAL WINDSHEAR ABOVE THE SYSTEM. TROPICAL
CYCLONE 06S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO SLOWLY DRIFT WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE LOCATED
TO ITS SOUTH. AS CONDITIONS REMAIN FAVORABLE FOR DEVELOPMENT, TC 06S
IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVEHEIGHT AT 061800Z5 IS 16 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT

REMARKS:
070900Z6 POSITION NEAR 10.0S1 131.0E5.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 06S (THELMA) HAS REMAINED QUASI-STATIONARY IN THE
ARAFURA SEA OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS, BUT HAS DRIFTED SOUTHWARD AT 2
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED UPON A
070530Z5 VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGE. THE WARNING INTENSITIES ARE BASED
UPON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 65 AND 95 KNOTS.
ALTHOUGH TC 06S (THELMA) IS UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO ITS SOUTH, ANIMATED INFRARED AND WATER VAPOR
SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATE AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH IS MITIGATING THE
STEERING EFFECTS OF THE RIDGE. APPARENTLY, THE TROUGH, WHICH
EXTENDS ACROSS THE EASTERN COAST OF AUSTRALIA AND DIGS NORTH
TOWARDS TC 06S (THELMA), IS CREATING ENOUGH WESTERLY FLOW NEAR TC
06S (THELMA) TO COUNTERACT THE EASTERLY WINDS ASSOCIATED WITH THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE LOCATED TO THE SOUTH. THIS MITIGATION EFFECT HAS
ALLOWED TC 06S (THELMA) TO DRIFT TOWARDS THE SOUTH. ACCORDING TO
THE NAVAL OPERATIONAL GLOBAL ATMOSPHERIC PREDICTION SYSTEM
(NOGAPS), THE TROUGH/RIDGE INTERACTION SHOULD AFFECT THE TRACK OF
TC 06S (THELMA) FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT 24 HOURS. BY THE 48 HOUR
MARK, TC 06S (THELMA) SHOULD TAKE A MORE WESTERLY TRACK AS THE
RIDGE TO THE SOUTH BEGINS TO HAVE SOME SWAY OVER THE COURSE OF TC
06S (THELMA). HENCE, THE FORECAST TRACK REMAINS SLOW TO
QUASISTATIONARY OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS, BUT TENDS TOWARD THE SOUTH-
SOUTHWEST OVER THE 48 HOUR PERIOD. THE WIND RADII ARE BASED UPON
CLIMATOLOGY FOR AN AVERAGE SIZED SYSTEM BUT WERE SOMEWHAT REDUCED
DUE TO THE AVAILABLE SURFACE SYNOPTIC INFORMATION OVER NORTHERN
AUSTRALIA. UW-CIMSS DIVERGENCE CHARTS INDICATE THE UPPER LEVEL
ENVIRONMENT REMAINS FAVORABLE FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT, AND INDEED
TC 06S (THELMA) HAS DEVELOPED RAPIDLY OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 06S (THELMA) SHOULD CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY, BUT NOT
AT SUCH AN ACCELERATED RATE, AS TC 06S (THELMA) SHOULD BEGIN TO USE
UP THE AVAILABLE SURFACE LEVEL ENERGY. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 070600Z3 IS 18 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 072100Z0 (DTG

REMARKS:
072100Z0 POSITION NEAR 11.1S3  130.4E8.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 06S (THELMA) HAS DRIFTED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 6
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION AND INTENSITY
(115KTS) ARE  BASED ON 071130Z2 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES. IMAGERY REVEALS A 19NM RAGGED EYE WITH THE
EYEWALL APPROACHING BATHURST AND MELVILLE ISLANDS, JUST NORTH OF
DARWIN, AUSTRALIA. ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS AN INCREASE IN
INTENSITY OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. ANIMATION ALSO INDICATES A
SLIGHTLY MORE WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK OVER THE PAST 3 HOURS.
SYNOPTIC OBSERVATIONS AND SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATE A FAIRLY
CONTRACTED WIND RADII. ALTHOUGH TC 06S (THELMA) IS UNDER THE WEAK
STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO ITS SOUTH, ANIMATED
INFRARED AND WATER VAPOR SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATE AN UPPER LEVEL
TROUGH TO THE SOUTHEAST IS MITIGATING THE STEERING EFFECTS OF THE
RIDGE. THIS MITIGATION EFFECT ALLOWED TC 06S (THELMA) TO DRIFT MORE
TOWARDS THE SOUTH OVER THE PAST 18 HOURS. ACCORDING TO THE NAVAL
OPERATIONAL GLOBAL ATMOSPHERIC PREDICTION SYSTEM (NOGAPS), THE
TROUGH/RIDGE INTERACTION IS WEAKENING AND SHOULD ONLY AFFECT THE
TRACK OF TC 06S (THELMA) FOR THE NEXT 12-24 HOURS. AFTERWARDS, THE
FORECAST TRACK IS MORE WESTERLY AS THE RIDGE TO THE SOUTH BEGINS TO
BECOME THE PRIMARY STEERING INFLUENCE. THE FORECAST TRACK SPEED
GRADUALLY INCREASES AS THE STEERING FLOW TRANSITIONS.  TC 06S SHOULD
NOW BE AT MAX INTENSITY AS IT BEGINS TO INTERACT WITH THE AUSTRALIAN
ISLANDS AND NORTH COAST. TC 06S (THELMA)=S INTENSIFY IS FORECAST TO
SLOWLY WEAKEN DUE TO THIS INTERACTION. THE WIND RADII ARE BASED UPON
CLIMATOLOGY FOR A SMALLER THAN AVERAGE SIZED SYSTEM, SATELLITE
SIGNATURE, AND AVAILABLE SURFACE SYNOPTIC DATA. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 071800Z6 IS 21 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 080900Z7 (DTG
080753Z3) AND 082100Z1 (DTG 081953Z6). //

TROPICAL CYCLONE 06S (THELMA) HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 5 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WESTWARD COMPONENT IS DUE TO INFLUENCE
BY A PASSING TROUGH TO THE SOUTH. ALTHOUGH HAVING BEEN OVER LAND FOR
AWHILE, THE ATMOSPHERIC ENVIRONMENT REMAINS FAVORABLE AND THE SYSTEM
IS MAINTAINING ITS LOW- AND MID-LEVEL ORGANIZATION AS WELL AS SOME
CENTRAL CONVECTION. DUE TO THIS, IN ADDITION TO IT APPROACHING THE
COASTLINE, THE FORECAST PERIOD IS THE FULL 48 HOURS, EVEN THOUGH THE
INTENSITY IS EXPECTED TO DROP BELOW WARNING CRITERIA DUE TO
CONTINUED LAND INTERACTION. THE WARNING POSITION AND INTENSITY ARE
BASED ON 120530Z VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 120600Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 122100Z6 (DTG
121953Z1) AND 130900Z3 (DTG 130753Z9).//

TROPICAL CYCLONE 06S (THELMA) HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 6
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
121730Z4 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED
ON 121730Z4 SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATE. TROPICAL CYCLONE 06S
(THELMA) HAS BEEN MOVING SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD IN THE STEERING FLOW
FROM THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO ITS SOUTHEAST. ALTHOUGH TROPICAL
CYCLONE 06S (THELMA) IS LOCATED OVER THE GREAT SANDY DESERT, THE
SYSTEM HAS BEEN MAINTAINING GOOD UPPER LEVEL SUPPORT AND MOIST
INFLOW FROM THE COAST, WHICH HAS ALLOWED THE SYSTEM TO TEMPORARILY
INTENSIFY TO 40 KNOTS. TROPICAL CYCLONE 06S (THELMA) IS FORECAST TO
TRACK SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD INITIALLY, AND THEN TURN SOUTHWESTWARD, IN
THE LOW-LEVEL FLOW. DUE TO ITS CONTINUED PROXIMITY TO THE COAST AND
STEADY ORGANIZED STRUCTURE, TROPICAL CYCLONE 06S (THELMA) IS
FORECAST TO ONLY WEAKEN TO 35 KNOTS OVER THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE
WIND RADII ARE BASED ON THE CURRENT CLOUD SIGNATURE. NEXT WARNINGS
AT 130900Z3 (DTG 130753Z9) AND 132100Z7 (DTG 131953Z2).//
