1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
110 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 10.9S0 62.3E1 TO 12.8S1 58.4E7
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 25 TO 30 KNOTS. METSAT
IMAGERY AT 020716Z6 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS
LOCATED NEAR 11.1S3 61.8E5. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 05 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS:
THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 11.7S9 62.7E5 IS NOW
LOCATED NEAR 11.1S3 61.8E5, APPROXIMATELY 700 NM EAST-NORTHEAST OF
ANTALAHA, MADAGASCAR. ANIMATED VISIBLE AND INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICT IMPROVED ORGANIZATION OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS WITH
INCREASED CONVECTIVE BANDING. A 020449Z9 SPECIAL SENSOR MICROWAVE
IMAGER PASS DEPICTS A PARTIALLY EXPOSED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
(LLCC) EAST OF THE DEEP CONVECTION. THE 200 MB ANALYSIS SHOWS THAT
THE AREA IS UNDER THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AXIS AND HAS GOOD OUTFLOW.
MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1000 MB. THE
POTENTIAL FOR DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN
THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS NOW GOOD.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY

REMARKS:
050900Z4 POSITION NEAR 16.9S6 55.5E5.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 04S (ANDO), LOCATED EAST OF MADAGASCAR IN THE
SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS
DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 050516Z7
INFRARED AND VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS
BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 115 KNOTS.
ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY CONTINUES TO DEPICT IMPROVED
ORGANIZATION AND A 10 NM EYE. CONVECTION HAS INTENSIFIED SLIGHTLY IN
ALL QUADRANTS. TC 04S CONTINUES TO MOVE INTO A WEAKNESS IN THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE, CAUSED BY THE APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH.
THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO TRACK THROUGH THE WEAKNESS AND BEGIN
RECURVATURE. THE SYSTEM WILL MAINTAIN INTENSITY IN A FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT, THEN BEGIN TO WEAKEN UNDER INCREASING VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR TOWARD THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 050600Z1 IS 20 FEET. REFER TO WWIO30 RJTX FOR
ADDITIONAL SEA HEIGHT INFORMATION. NEXT WARNINGS AT 052100Z8 (DTG
051952Z2) AND 060900Z5 (DTG 060752Z0).//

DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 051730Z6
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A 051716Z0 SPECIAL SENSOR MICROWAVE
IMAGER (SSM/I). THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 115 AND 127 KNOTS. THE SSM/I IMAGE DEPICTS A
PRIMARY BAND OVER THE SOUTHERN QUADRANTS AND A 20 NM CONCENTRIC
EYEWALL. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY CONTINUES TO DEPICT A
WELL-ORGANIZED, SYMMETRIC SYSTEM. TC 04S SHOULD REMAIN IN A WEAKNESS
CREATED BY A QUASI-STATIONARY LONGWAVE TROUGH, SITUATED OVER SOUTH
AFRICA, THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. THEREFORE, TC 04S IS FORECAST
TO TRACK GENERALLY SOUTHWARD THROUGH THE PERIOD. LITTLE CHANGE IN
INTENSITY IS FORECAST OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS. AFTERWARDS, THE SYSTEM
SHOULD BEGIN A SLOW WEAKENING TREND. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT
AT 051800Z4 IS 20 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 060900Z5 (DTG 060752Z0) AND
