REMARKS:
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 241800Z IS 16 FEET. ANIMATED 
VISUAL SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THAT CONVECTION HAS CONTINUED 
TO INCREASE OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS AS THE SYSTEM INTENSIFIES. IMAGERY
ALSO SHOWS THAT LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER CONTINUES TO BE 
PARTIALLYEXPOSED. MODEL DATA INDICATES A MORE WESTWARD TRACK THAN 
PREVIOUSLY FORECAST. NEXT WARNINGS AT 250900Z6 AND 252100Z0.//

ALTHOUGH OVERALL CONVECTION FOR TROPICAL CYCLONE 13P HAS 
DECREASED, STRONG CONVECTION REMAINS EVIDENT TO THE EASTERN
QUADRANTS. OUTFLOW HAS DECREASED CONSIDERABLY THE PAST 12
HOURS AS WELL. WEAKENING OF THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST AS COOLER
SST'S OF 23 DEGREES CELSIUS EFFECT THE SYSTEM. TC 13P IS FORECAST
TO TRACK SOUTHWARD AFTER THE 36 HR PERIOD AS THE SYSTEM
CONTINUES TO BE STEERED BY AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGED POSITIONED
JUST SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM.  NEXT WARNINGS AT 290900Z0 AND 292100Z4.

REMARKS:
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 291800Z IS 12 FEET.
TC 13P MAINTAINS INTENSITY THROUGH THE NEXT 12 HOURS, THEN 
WEAKENING IS FORECAST AS THE SYSTEM IS AFFECTED BY THE COOLER SST'S.
MOVEMENT OF THE SYSTEM CONTINUES SOUTHWEST THROUGH 12 HOURS
THEN MORE SOUTHWARD AS IT ROUNDS THE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE TO ITS 
EAST. THIS IS THE FINAL WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM BY THE NAVAL PACIFIC
METEOROLOGY AND OCEANOGRAPHY CENTER (NAVPACMETOCCEN).  THE SYSTEM
WILL BE CLOSELY MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF REGENERATION.
