SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT 062351Z JAN 01//
REF/A/RMG/NAVPACMETOCCEN PEARL HARBOR HI/052351Z JAN 01//
AMPN/REF IS TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT (WTXS22 PGTW 060000)//
RMKS/
1. IMMEDIATE DELIVERY REQ TO AMEMBASSY PORT LOUIS
2. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
120 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 11.1S3 78.7E2 TO 11.9S1 74.2E3
WITHIN THE NEXT 06 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 062330Z4 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS
LOCATED NEAR 11.2S4 77.7E1. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS.
3. REMARKS:
THIS SUPERSEDES REF A.
ENHANCED INFRARED IMAGERY CONTINUES TO DEPICT A REGION OF
PERSISTENT DEEP CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH A WEAK LOW-LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 061727Z3 TROPICAL RAINFALL
MEASURING MISSION (TRMM) PASS REVEALED A PARTIALLY EXPOSED LLCC
EAST OF THE DEEP CONVECTION. 200 MB ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT THE
SYSTEM REMAINS EQUATORWARD OF THE UPPER RIDGE. HOWEVER, THE
SYSTEM IS TRACKING TOWARD THE RIDGE AXIS. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS
ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS
ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1000 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT
OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS
REMAINS GOOD.
4. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
080000Z8.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 05S HAS DEVELOPED APPROXIMATELY 283 NM SOUTH-
SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA OVER THE SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN. TROPICAL
CYCLONE (TC) 05S HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS DURING
THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 071730Z8 INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 30 AND 35 KNOTS. A 071614Z9 SPECIAL
SENSOR MICROWAVE IMAGER (SSM/I) PASS DEPICTED A CONVECTIVE BANDING
FEATURE DEVELOPING NEAR THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A
RECENT QUIKSCAT PASS ALSO INDICATED THE POSSIBILITY OF MULTIPLE
LLCCS ALONG THE NEAR EQUATORIAL TROUGH WITHIN THE AREA. TC 05S IS
FORECAST TO TRACK WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD WITHIN THE STEERING FLOW OF A
WEAKENING MID-LEVEL RIDGE EXTENDING ALONG 30.0S3. THE SYSTEM SHOULD
INTENSIFY AT A NEAR CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE AS IT TRACKS JUST
EQUATORWARD OF THE UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE AXIS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE

REMARKS:
100900Z0 POSITION NEAR 16.3S0   72.8E7.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 05S, LOCATED SOUTH OF DIEGO GARCIA IN THE
SOUTHERN INDIAN OCEAN, HAS REMAINED QUASI-STATIONARY DURING THE PAST
6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 100530Z9 VISIBLE AND
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 77 KNOTS. ANIMATED
SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THE SYSTEM HAS WEAKENED OVER THE PAST
12 HOURS, UNDER INCREASED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. THERE IS NO EYE
FEATURE EVIDENT IN THE CLOUD PATTERN ANY LONGER. A MID TO UPPER-
LEVEL RIDGE HAS WEAKENED THE SUB-TROPICAL RIDGE, AND THE SYSTEM
CONTINUES TO DRIFT IN WEAK STEERING FLOW. TC 05S IS FORECAST TO
TRACK WESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUB-TROPICAL
RIDGE TO THE SOUTH AS IT BEGINS TO BUILD OVER THE NEXT 12 TO 24
HOURS. THE SYSTEM WILL BEGIN TO DIP SOUTHWARD AFTER THE 24 HOUR
TIMEFRAME AS AN APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH BEGINS TO WEAKEN THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO WEAKEN SLOWLY IN A
MARGINAL UPPER-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT THROUGH THE PERIOD. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 100600Z7 IS 22 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
102100Z4 (DTG 101951Z7) AND 110900Z1 (DTG 110751Z5). REFER TO

A 120019Z3 TROPICAL RAINFALL MEASURING MISSION PASS DEPICTED A WELL
DEFINED PRIMARY BANDING FEATURE WRAPPING IN TOWARD THE CENTER FROM
THE SOUTH QUADRANT, AND DEEPENING EYEWALL CONVECTION. A LARGE FEEDER
BAND WAS ALSO EVIDENT EXTENDING OVER THE EASTERN HALF OF THE SYSTEM.
MID-LEVEL RIDGE BUILDING SOUTH OF TC 05S ALONG 35.0S8 HAS INFLUENCED
THE SYSTEM TO TAKE A WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK DURING THE PAST 12

REMARKS:
150900Z5 POSITION NEAR 20.1S3 65.4E5.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 05S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 140 NM EAST OF PORT
MATHURIN, RODRIGUES ISLAND, IN THE SOUTHERN INDIAN OCEAN, HAS
TRACKED WESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING
POSITION IS BASED ON 150530Z4 VISIBLE AND INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 55 AND 45 KNOTS. ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY
INDICATES THAT TC 05S HAS WEAKENED OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. A RECENT
MICROWAVE IMAGE DEPICTED AN EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
(LLCC) WITH CONVECTION SHEARED TO THE SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM. UW-CIMSS
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR PRODUCT INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS UNDER MODERATE
TO STRONG VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. TC 05S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE
TRACKING WESTWARD INITIALLY, THEN INCREASINGLY SOUTHWESTWARD AS IT
MOVES INTO A WEAKNESS IN THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE CAUSED BY AN
APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE SYSTEM. THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE
WEAKENING UNDER STRONG VERTICAL WIND SHEAR, AND WILL BEGIN EXTRA-
TROPICAL TRANSITION WITHIN THE NEXT 36 HOURS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 150600Z2 IS 14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 152100Z9 (DTG
151951Z2) AND 160900Z6 (DTG 160751Z0).//

REMARKS:
152100Z9 POSITION NEAR 20.8S0 64.0E0.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 05S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 75 NM SOUTHEAST OF
PORT MATHURIN, RODRIGUES ISLAND, IN THE SOUTHERN INDIAN OCEAN, HAS
TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWEST AT 09 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE
WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 151730Z7 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY.
THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 45 KNOTS. ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THAT TC
05S HAS MAINTAINED INTENSITY OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. IMAGERY
INDICATES THAT THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) IS ON THE
NORTHEASTERN EDGE OF THE DEEP CONVECTION. A 151740Z8 SPECIAL SENSOR
MICROWAVE IMAGER PASS DEPICTS A PARTIALLY-EXPOSED LLCC WITH
CONVECTION ELONGATED SOUTHEASTWARD. A 151305Z5 QUIKSCAT
SCATTEROMETER PASS SHOWS AN EXTENSIVE AREA OF CONVERGENT FLOW AND
GALE FORCE WINDS SOUTH OF THE LLCC, EQUATORWARD OF A HIGH SITUATED
NEAR 37S0 65E1. THE UW-CIMSS ANALYSIS INDICATES MODERATE TO STRONG
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. TC 05S IS FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTHWESTWARD TO
SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AS IT MOVES INTO A WEAKNESS IN THE LOW TO MID-
LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE CREATED BY AN APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE
TROUGH. BASED ON QUIKSCAT AND MICROWAVE IMAGERY, THE SYSTEM APPEARS
TO BE IN THE EARLY STAGES OF EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION, AND IS ALSO
FORECAST TO WEAKEN UNDER INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. TC 05S IS
EXPECTED TO COMPLETE EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION WITHIN THE NEXT 36 TO
48 HOURS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 151800Z5 IS 14 FEET.
NEXT WARNINGS AT 160900Z6 (DTG 160751Z0) AND 162100Z0 (DTG
