SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT 260051Z FEB 00//
RMKS/
1. IMMEDIATE DELIVERY REQ TO AMEMBASSY PORT MORESBY
2. IMMEDIATE DELIVERY REQ TO AMEMBASSY SUVA
3. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 200 NM RADIUS OF 16.4S1 1.9E3 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 30 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY AT 262230Z5 INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 16.0S7 150.2E8. THE SYSTEM IS
QUASI-STATIONARY.
4. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION HAS REMAINED APPROXIMATELY 300 NM
EAST OF THE CAPE YORK PENINSULA IN THE CORAL SEA. SCATTEROMETER DATA
INDICATES A DEVELOPING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC)
ASSOCIATED WITH THE INCREASING CONVECTION. ANIMATED VISIBLE IMAGERY
REVEALS CONVECTION DEVELOPING INTO BANDING FEATURES AROUND THE LLCC.
252100Z0 SYNOPTIC DATA ALSO REFLECTS THE LLCC ALONG WITH FALLING
SURFACE PRESSURES. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SUGGESTS WEAK TO
MODERATE VERTICAL SHEAR ACROSS THE REGION WITH FAIR OUTFLOW ALOFT.
MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED NEAR 1000 MB. THE POTENTIAL
FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE
NEXT 24 HOURS IS NOW GOOD.
5. THIS ALERT VALID UNTIL 270100Z0.

WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 261730Z9 SATELLITE IMAGERY AND 261800Z7
SURFACE SYNOPTIC DATA. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED UPON SYNOPTIC
OBSERVATIONS OF 32 KNOTS (10 MINUTE AVERAGE) AND SATELLITE CURRENT
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 30 KNOTS. ANIMATED INFRARED IMAGERY INDICATES
CONTINUED ORGANIZATION OF THE SYSTEM DURING THE PAST 18 HOURS WITH
CONVECTION RECENTLY BUILDING OVER THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
(LLCC). SURFACE PRESSURES HAVE CONTINUED TO FALL BELOW 1000 MB AND
SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS CLOSE TO THE LLCC REMAIN NEAR 30 KNOTS (10
MINUTE AVERAGE). ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY REVEALS GOOD OUTFLOW
ALOFT, ESPECIALLY TO THE NORTH, AND WEAK VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ACROSS
THE REGION. TC 14P IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING TOWARDS THE WEST
WITHIN THE STEERING FLOW OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. THE
SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO MAKE LANDFALL NEAR CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, AROUND
THE 12 HOUR FORECAST PERIOD. TC 14P MAY INTENSIFY SLIGHTLY BEFORE
MOVING ONSHORE AND SHOULD DISSIPATE OVER LAND BY THE END OF THE 36
HOUR FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 261800Z7 IS

KIMBERLEY, AUSTRALIA DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION
IS BASED ON 031730Z4 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY AND SYNOPTIC DATA.
THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SURFACE SYNOPTIC REPORTS AND
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 25 AND 30 KNOTS. THE
WARNING INTENSITY HAS BEEN ADJUSTED TO REFLECT CURRENT SYNOPTIC
REPORTS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS THAT DEEP
CONVECTION HAS REMAINED NEAR THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. IT
APPEARS THAT THE INFLOW OF MOISTURE FROM THE TIMOR SEA HAS HELPED TO
KEEP THE SYSTEM INTACT. A MID-LEVEL HIGH SITUATED OVER SOUTHWEST
AUSTRALIA IS EXPECTED TO BUILD NORTHWARD OVER THE NEXT 12 HOURS
CAUSING TC 14P (STEVE) TO TRACK GENERALLY WESTWARD THROUGH THE

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 14P (STEVE), LOCATED ABOUT 85 NM EAST OF
YAMPI SOUND, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 11 KNOTS
OVER KIMBERLEY, AUSTRALIA DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING
POSITION IS BASED ON 032330Z1 INFRARED AND MULTI-SPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY AND SYNOPTIC DATA. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SURFACE
SYNOPTIC REPORTS AND SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 25 AND
30 KNOTS. ANIMATED IMAGERY CONTINUES TO DEPICT DISORGANIZED YET
PERSISTENT CONVECTION SHIELDING KIMBERLEY, AUSTRALIA. SYNOPTIC DATA
INDICATES AN ELONGATED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC)
ASSOCIATED WITH THE SYSTEM. THE DEEP CONVECTION APPEARS TO BE
SITUATED JUST SOUTHEAST OF THE LLCC. 200 MB ANALYSIS REVEALS WEAK
MID-LEVEL RIDGING EXTENDING OVER THE REGION. A MID-LEVEL HIGH
SITUATED OVER SOUTHWEST AUSTRALIA IS EXPECTED TO BUILD NORTHWARD
OVER THE NEXT 6 TO 12 HOURS CAUSING TC 14P (STEVE) TO TRACK
GENERALLY WESTWARD THROUGH THE PERIOD. ONCE THE SYSTEM MOVES OFF THE
COAST, TC 14P (STEVE) SHOULD INTENSIFY AT A CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 040000Z4 IS 10 FEET. NEXT

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 14P (STEVE), LOCATED ABOUT 50 NM NORTHWEST OF
BROOME, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS DURING
THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 042330Z2 INFRARED
AND VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY, SYNOPTIC DATA, AND RADAR DATA. THE
WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SURFACE SYNOPTIC REPORTS AND SATELLITE
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 35 AND 45 KNOTS. ANIMATED MULTI-
SPECTRAL IMAGERY DEPICTS IMPROVED CONSOLIDATION AND INCREASE IN
AREAL COVERAGE AS TC 14P CONTINUES TO MOVE FURTHER AWAY FROM THE
DAMPIER LAND COAST. BROOME, AUSTRALIA RADAR LOOP INDICATES HEAVIER
PRECIPITATION IS CONFINED TO THE ROEBUCK PLAINS JUST SOUTHEAST
OF BROOME. A MID-LEVEL RIDGE SITUATED OVER SOUTHERN AUSTRALIA IS
FORECAST TO BUILD NORTHWARD OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS, EAST OF TC 14P.
THIS WILL CAUSE TC 14P (STEVE) TO TAKE A MORE SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK.
TC 14P SHOULD CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY AS IT MOVES FURTHER AWAY FROM
THE COAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 050000Z5 IS 18 FEET.

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 14P (STEVE) HAS TAKEN A SUDDEN WESTWARD TURN
AWAY FROM THE COAST OVER THE PAST 3 HOURS. EARLIER WARNING PROJECTED
THE SYSTEM TO MOVE ON SHORE AROUND 060600Z2. LANDFALL IS NO LONGER
EXPECTED DUE TO THE SHIFT TO THE WEST. THEREFORE, WARNING 21 HAS
BEEN AMENDED TO REFLECT THE TRACK CHANGE. TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 14P
(STEVE), LOCATED ABOUT 22 NM NORTH OF PORT HEDLAND, AUSTRALIA, HAS
TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE
WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 051730Z6 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY,
SYNOPTIC DATA, AND RADAR DATA. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 45 AND 55 KNOTS AND
SYNOPTIC SURFACE DATA. A 051308Z7 SPECIAL SENSOR MICROWAVE IMAGER
(SSM/I) DEPICTED TWO BANDING FEATURES ASSOCIATED WITH THE SYSTEM.
THE FIRST, EXTENDING OVER THE SOUTHEAST QUADRANT, FROM THE EIGHTY
MILE BEACH TO PORT HEDLAND. THE SECOND, OVER THE NORTHWEST QUADRANT.
IMAGERY ALSO INDICATED THAT OVERALL, THE CONVECTION HAS REMAINED
OVER THE PERIPHERY OF THE SYSTEM. PORT HEDLAND, AUSTRALIA RADAR LOOP
REVEALS A RATHER BROAD LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER JUST NORTH OF
POISSONIER POINT. THE HEAVIEST PRECIPITATION APPEARS TO BE
ASSOCIATED WITH THE CONVECTIVE BAND OVER THE SOUTHEAST QUADRANT.
MID-LEVEL RIDGE EXTENDING FROM SOUTHWEST AUSTRALIA TO THE NORTHWEST
REGION OF QUEENSLAND IS FORECAST TO MAINTAIN ITS POSITION THROUGH 48
HOURS. AFTERWARD, IT WILL WEAKEN OVER SOUTHWEST AUSTRALIA AND SHIFT
INTO A MORE POLEWARD PATTERN AS AN APPROACHING SHORT WAVE TROUGH
MOVES TOWARD THE SOUTHWEST COAST. TC 14P (STEVE) IS EXPECTED TO
TRACK SOUTHWESTWARD OVER THE NEXT 48 HOURS. AFTERWARD, TC 14P SHOULD
TRACK MORE SOUTHWARD WITHIN A WEAKNESS IN THE RIDGE. TC 14P (STEVE)
SHOULD CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY AS IT APPROACHES THE NORTHWEST CAPE.
JUSTIFICATION FOR AMMENDMENT: SUDDEN SHIFT IN TRACK. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 051800Z4 IS 18 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
060300Z9 (DTG 060151Z3), 060900Z5 (DTG 060751Z9), 061500Z2 (DTG

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 14P (STEVE), LOCATED ABOUT 52 NM WEST-
NORTHWEST OF PORT HEDLAND, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD
AT 08 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED
ON 052330Z3 INFRARED AND VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY, SYNOPTIC DATA,
AND RADAR DATA. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 55 KNOTS AND SYNOPTIC SURFACE DATA. ANIMATED
VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTED NEW CONVECTION DEVELOPING AND
BUILDING IN TOWARD THE BROAD LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER FROM THE
NORTHWEST. THE MAJORITY OF THE CONVECTION CONTINUES TO REMAIN OVER
THE PERIPHERY OF THE SYSTEM. PORT HEDLAND, AUSTRALIA RADAR LOOP
REVEALS A RATHER BROAD LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER JUST NORTH-
NORTHWEST OF PORT HEDLAND. THE HEAVIEST PRECIPITATION IS PROPAGATING
OVER THE ROEBOURNE, DAMPIER AREA. MID-LEVEL RIDGE EXTENDING FROM
SOUTHWEST AUSTRALIA TO THE NORTHWEST REGION OF QUEENSLAND IS
FORECAST TO MAINTAIN ITS POSITION THROUGH 36 HOURS. AFTERWARD, IT
WILL WEAKEN OVER SOUTHWEST AUSTRALIA AND SHIFT INTO A MORE POLEWARD
PATTERN AS AN APPROACHING SHORT WAVE TROUGH MOVES TOWARD THE
SOUTHWEST COAST. TC 14P (STEVE) IS EXPECTED TO TRACK WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD JUST OFF THE COAST OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS. AFTERWARD,
TC 14P SHOULD TRACK MORE SOUTHWARD WITHIN A WEAKNESS IN THE RIDGE.
TC 14P (STEVE) SHOULD SLOWLY INTENSIFY AS IT APPROACHES THE
NORTHWEST CAPE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 060000Z6 IS 18
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 060900Z5 (DTG 060751Z9), 061500Z2 (DTG

REMARKS:
070300Z0 POSITION NEAR 22.6S0 115.0E7.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 14P (STEVE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 60 NM EAST
OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS
DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 062330Z4
VISIBLE AND INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY, SYNOPTIC DATA, AND RADAR
DATA. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 55 AND 65 KNOTS AND SYNOPTIC DATA. ANIMATED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THAT TC 14P (STEVE) HAS CONTINUED TO WEAKEN
OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS WITH THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC)
LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 60 NM EAST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA. ANIMATED
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY CONTINUES TO INDICATE GOOD OUTFLOW ALOFT. TC 14P
(STEVE) IS EXPECTED TO TRACK GENERALLY SOUTHWESTWARD, SKIRTING THE
NORTHWEST COAST OF AUSTRALIA THROUGH THE 24 HOUR PERIOD UNDER THE
STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE MID-LEVEL RIDGE OVER WESTERN AUSTRALIA.
AFTER 24 HOURS, THE MID-LEVEL RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN DUE TO AN
APPROACHING MIDLATITUDE SHORT WAVE TROUGH. THIS WILL RESULT IN A
SHIFT TO A POLEWARD PATTERN, WHICH WILL STEER TC 14P (STEVE)
SOUTHWARD. THE SYSTEM SHOULD WEAKEN SLIGHTLY DUE TO INTERACTION WITH
LAND OVER THE NEXT 12 HOURS. AS THE SYSTEM MOVES SOUTH, INCREASING
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR WILL INHIBIT THE POSSIBILITY FOR ANY FURTHER
INTENSIFICATION AS IT MOVES BACK OVER WATER. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 070000Z7 IS 14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 070900Z6
(DTG 070751Z0), 071500Z3 (DTG 071351Z7), 072100Z0 (DTG 071951Z3) AND

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 14P (STEVE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 100 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED
SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 4 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING
POSITION IS BASED ON 072330Z5 VISIBLE AND INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
AND RADAR DATA. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 55 KNOTS. ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS
THE CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH TC 14P (STEVE) HAS CONTINUED TO
ORGANIZE OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. ANIMATED RADAR IMAGERY FROM DAMPIER,
AUSTRALIA CLEARLY SHOWS THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) IS
SITUATED JUST OFF THE COAST AND NORTH OF CAPE CUVIER. ANIMATED WATER
VAPOR IMAGERY CONTINUES TO INDICATE GOOD OUTFLOW ALOFT. TC 14P
(STEVE) IS FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD INITIALLY, THEN
RECURVE THROUGH A WEAKNESS IN THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. THE SYSTEM IS
FORECAST TO INTENSIFY SLIGHTLY AS IT CONTINUES TO MOVE OVER WATER
DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS. AS THE SYSTEM MOVES SOUTH, AFTER THE 24
HOUR PERIOD, INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR WILL INHIBIT DEVELOPMENT
AND THEN SERVE TO WEAKEN THE SYSTEM, UNTIL IT IS ABSORBED INTO THE
PASSING MID-LATITUDE SYSTEM. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
