REF/A/RMG/NAVPACMETOCCEN PEARL HARBOR HI/250601Z JAN 00//
AMPN/REF A IS TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT (WTPS22 PGTW
250600)//
RMKS/
1. IMMEDIATE DELIVERY REQ TO AMEMBASSY PORT LOUIS
2. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 150 NM RADIUS OF 15.4S0 56.1E2 WITHIN THE NEXT 3 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 250530Z5 INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 15.4S0 56.3E4. THE SYSTEM IS
MOVING SOUTHWESTWARD AT 01 KNOTS.
3. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 15.1S7
56.5E6 IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 15.4S0 56.3E4, APPROXIMATELY 335 NM EAST
OF MADAGASCAR. ANIMATED VISIBLE AND INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS
PERSISTENT CONVECTION THAT HAS BECOME MORE ORGANIZED DURING THE PAST
6 HOURS. A RECENT PARTIAL SCATTEROMETER PASS SUGGESTS A BROAD LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION ASSOCIATED WITH THE CONVECTION. UW-CIMSS ANALYSIS
INDICATES WEAK VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND FAIR OUTFLOW ALOFT. MAXIMUM
SUSTAINED WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL
PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1002 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24
HOURS IS NOW GOOD.
4. THIS ALERT VALID UNTIL 261000Z9.

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 08S (CONNIE) IS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 380 NM
NORTH-NORTHWEST OF MAURITIUS AND HAS REMAINED QUASI-STATIONARY OVER
THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED UPON 261730Z9
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 55 KNOTS. ANIMATED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES PERSISTENT CONVECTION AND INCREASED
ORGANIZATION WITH GOOD OUTFLOW ALOFT. TC 08S (CONNIE) REMAINS WITHIN
A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT AND IS FORECAST TO REMAIN QUASI-
STATIONARY DURING THE INITIAL 12-24 HOURS. AFTERWARDS, THE SYSTEM IS
FORECAST TO TRACK SLOWLY SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD THROUGH THE 72 HOUR
PERIOD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
TO THE EAST. TC 08S IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY AT A NEAR-
CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM

08S IS FORECAST TO TRACK TOWARDS THE SOUTH-SOUTHWEST WITHIN A
WEAKNESS IN THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY
REVEALS VERY GOOD OUTFLOW ALOFT WITH MINIMAL SHEAR ACROSS THE

REMARKS:
290300Z4 POSITION NEAR 18.3S2 56.0E1.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 08S (CONNIE) IS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 130 NM
NORTHWEST OF MAURITIUS AND HAS MOVED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 282330Z8 INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 90 AND 115 KNOTS. TC 08S (CONNIE)
HAS CONTINUED TO SHOW WEAKENING OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. ANIMATED
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THE SYSTEM MAINTAINS A RAGGED
10 NM EYE, BUT WITH CONTINUED SHEARING TO THE SOUTH. WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY INDICATES A WEAK TROPICAL UPPER-TROPOSPHERIC TROUGH (TUTT)
TO THE SOUTHWEST OF THE SYSTEM. THIS TUTT IS ENHANCING THE
UPPERLEVEL WIND FLOW, AND CAUSING AN INCREASE OF VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
OVER THE SOUTHERN QUADRANT. TC 08S (CONNIE) IS FORECAST TO TRACK
SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD INTO A WEAKNESS IN THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. TC 08S
(CONNIE) IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE WEAKENING DUE TO THE INCREASING
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH A TROUGH
MOVING EASTWARD IN THE MID-LATITUDE WESTERLIES WILL SERVE TO FURTHER
INCREASE THE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR OVER THE SYSTEM, AND SUPPORT ITS
EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION BY THE 72 HOUR TIME FRAME. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 290000Z1 IS 25 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
291500Z7 (DTG 291353Z3) AND 300300Z6 (DTG 300153Z2). REFER TO

REMARKS:
300300Z6 POSITION NEAR 22.4S8 52.9E6.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 08S (CONNIE) IS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 145 NM
WEST-SOUTHWEST OF REUNION ISLAND, AND HAS MOVED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 11
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
292330Z9 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED
ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 65 AND 77 KNOTS.
ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THE SYSTEM HAS
WEAKENED SOMEWHAT OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE EYE IS NO LONGER
EVIDENT AND THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO ELONGATE TO THE SOUTHEAST. WATER
VAPOR IMAGERY CONTINUES TO INDICATE A WEAK TROPICAL UPPER-
TROPOSPHERIC TROUGH (TUTT) TO THE SOUTHWEST OF THE SYSTEM. THIS TUTT
IS ENHANCING THE UPPER-LEVEL WIND FLOW, AND CAUSING AN INCREASE OF
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR OVER THE SOUTHERN QUADRANT. DRIER AIR FROM THE
TUTT IS BEING INJECTED INTO THE INFLOW OF THE SYSTEM. THE DRY, COLD
AIR WILL ALSO ENHANCE EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION. TC 08S (CONNIE) IS
FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD THROUGH THE 24 HOUR PERIOD,
THEN TURN SOUTHWARD THROUGH A WEAKNESS IN THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE.
AFTER 48 HOURS THE SYSTEM WILL BEGIN TO MOVE IN A MORE EASTWARD
DIRECTION AS IT ENTERS THE MID-LATITUDE WESTERLIES. THE SYSTEM IS
EXPECTED TO CONTINUE WEAKENING DUE TO THE INCREASING VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR AND DRY AIR ENTRAINMENT. VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH A
TROUGH MOVING EASTWARD IN THE MID-LATITUDE WESTERLIES WILL SERVE TO
FURTHER INCREASE THE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR OVER THE SYSTEM, AND ALSO
SUPPORT ITS EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION BY THE 72 HOUR TIME FRAME.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 300000Z3 IS 22 FEET. NEXT
WARNINGS AT 300900Z2 (DTG 300753Z8), 301500Z9 (DTG 301353Z5),

012100Z4 POSITION NEAR 32.5S0 53.7E5.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 08S (CONNIE) IS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 550 NM
SOUTHEAST OF THE SOUTHERN TIP OF MADAGASCAR, AND HAS MOVED
SOUTHEASTWARD AT 06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING
POSITION IS BASED ON 011730Z2 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE
WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES
OF 30 TO 45 KNOTS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A
011451Z2 SPECIAL SENSOR MICROWAVE IMAGER (SSM/I) PASS DEPICT A FULLY
EXPOSED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH WEAKENING
CONVECTION DISPLACED APPROXIMATELY 65 NM SOUTHWEST OF THE CENTER. TC
08S (CONNIE) IS FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGH THE FORECAST
PERIOD. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN DUE TO INCREASING VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH THE MID-LATITUDE WESTERLIES. IT APPEARS
TC 08S WILL NOT UNDERGO EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION AS PREVIOUSLY
STATED. TC 08S WILL REMAIN EQUATORWARD OF THE JETSTREAM. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 011800Z0 IS 18 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
020900Z1 (DTG 020753Z7). REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE  09S (KIRRILY)

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 08S (CONNIE) IS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 670 NM
SOUTHEAST OF THE SOUTHERN TIP OF MADAGASCAR, AND HAS MOVED
SOUTHEASTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING
POSITION IS BASED ON 020530Z0 VISIBLE AND INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT

DEPICT A FULLY EXPOSED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH
WEAKENING CONVECTION DISPLACED APPROXIMATELY 75 NM NORTHEAST OF THE
CENTER. TC 08S (CONNIE) IS FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGH
THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE WEAKENING
DUE TO INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH THE MID-
