REF/A/RMG/NAVPACMETOCCEN PEARL HARBOR HI/181151Z JAN 01//
AMPN/REF IS TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT (WTXS21 PGTW 181200)//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 120 NM RADIUS OF 15.0S6 83.6E7 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 190530Z8 INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 14.3S8 84.8E0. THE SYSTEM IS
MOVING SOUTHWESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS:
THIS SUPERSEDES REF A.
THE TROPICAL DISTURBANCE IN THE SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN, HAS SHOWN
SOME IMPROVEMENT IN ORGANIZATION OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. ANIMATED
SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
(LLCC) HAS BEGUN TO MOVE BENEATH THE CONVECTION. A RECENT
QUICKSCATT PASS INDICATES INCREASED WIND SPEEDS AT THE SURFACE.
UW-CIMSS VERTICAL WIND SHEAR PRODUCT INDICATES THE SYSTEM REMAINS
UNDER WEAK VERTICAL WIND SHEAR WITH IMPROVING UPPER-LEVEL
OUTFLOW. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT
TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS REMAINS GOOD.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
200630Z1.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 06S (CHARLY) HAS DEVELOPED APPROXIMATELY 800
NM SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA OVER THE SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN. TROPICAL
CYCLONE (TC) 06S HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 07 KNOTS DURING
THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 191730Z1 INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 30 TO 45 KNOTS. ANIMATED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THAT TC 06S HAS IMPROVED ORGANIZATION
OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS WITH A WEAK CONVECTIVE BAND DEVELOPING SOUTH-
SOUTHEAST OF THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 191125Z9
TROPICAL RAINFALL MEASURING MISSION PASS DEPICTED A WELL-DEFINED
LLCC WITH A CONVECTIVE BAND WRAPPING INTO THE WESTERN QUADRANT.
IMAGERY ALSO SHOWS THAT CONVECTION HAS CYCLED AS THE SYSTEM
CONSOLIDATES. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS IMPROVED OUTFLOW,
ESPECIALLY IN THE SOUTHERN SEMI-CIRCLE, WITH A NORTHWESTERLY JET
ENHANCING THE OUTFLOW. A LOW-MID LEVEL HIGH, CENTERED SOUTH-
SOUTHEAST OF TC 06S AT APPROXIMATELY 33S6 91E0, IS PROVIDING THE
DOMINANT STEERING FLOW. THE RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO BUILD WESTWARD AND
STRENGTHEN THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD, WHICH WILL PROVIDE A
GENERALLY WESTWARD STEERING INFLUENCE AFTER 12-24 HOURS. THE SYSTEM
SHOULD INTENSIFY AT A CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE THROUGH THE PERIOD.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 191800Z9 IS 10 FEET. THIS WARNING

REMARKS:
212100Z6 POSITION NEAR 18.1S0 75.7E9.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 06S (CHARLY), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 740 NM
EAST OF PORT MATHURIN, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWEST AT 09 KNOTS DURING
THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 211730Z4 INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 77 TO 90 KNOTS. ANIMATED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A 29-NM IRREGULAR EYE WITH IMPROVED SYSTEM
ORGANIZATION OVER THE PAST 8 HOURS. A 211615Z6 SPECIAL SENSOR
MICROWAVE IMAGER PASS DEPICTED A PRIMARY BAND WRAPPING INTO THE
WESTERN QUADRANT OF THE SYSTEM. THE 200 MB ANALYSIS INDICATES THE
SYSTEM REMAINS UNDER THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY DEPICTS GOOD OUTFLOW OVER TC 06S, AND ALSO SHOWS A
MIDLATITUDE LOW NEAR 30.0S3 67.0E3 WITH ASSOCIATED TROUGH EXTENDING
NORTHWEST. TC 06S IS EXPECTED TO TRACK WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD TOWARD A
WEAKNESS IN THE MID-LEVEL RIDGE CREATED BY THE APPROACHING MID-LAT
TROUGH THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. TC 06S SHOULD REMAIN UNDER THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AXIS FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS AND IS EXPECTED TO
INTENSIFY AT A CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE. AFTERWARDS, TC 06S IS EXPECTED
TO GRADUALLY WEAKEN AS IT ENCOUNTERS INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
SOUTH OF THE UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE AXIS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT
AT 211800Z2 IS 18 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 220900Z3 (DTG 220751Z7) AND

REMARKS:
240900Z5 POSITION NEAR 22.8S2 63.8E7.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 06S (CHARLY), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 420 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 16
KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
240530Z4 INFRARED AND VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING
INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 55
KNOTS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS TC 06S HAS
CONTINUED TO WEAKEN RAPIDLY AND HAS LITTLE DEEP CONVECTION
REMAINING. THE UW-CIMSS UPPER LEVEL WIND ANALYSIS INDICATES THE
SYSTEM HAS MOVED SOUTH OF THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE AND IS IN AN AREA OF
20 TO 30 KNOTS OF VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY
DEPICTS DRIER AIR BEING ENTRAINED INTO THE SYSTEM FROM THE WEST
WHICH HAS ALSO SERVED TO WEAKEN THE SYSTEM. TC 06S IS EXPECTED TO
TRACK WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE LOW TO
MID-LEVEL RIDGE TO THE SOUTHEAST. TC 06S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
WEAKENING AS IT ENCOUNTERS INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR POLEWARD
OF THE UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE AXIS AND SLIGHTLY COOLER SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 240600Z2 IS 18
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 242100Z9 (DTG 241951Z2) AND 250900Z6 (DTG
250751Z0).//

242100Z9 POSITION NEAR 23.8S3 60.7E3.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 06S (CHARLY), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 365 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWEST AT 15 KNOTS
DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 241730Z7
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 35 TO 55 KNOTS. ANIMATED
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THAT TC 06S HAS CONTINUED TO WEAKEN
RAPIDLY WITH REMAINING DEEP CONVECTION LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 150 NM
SOUTHEAST OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 241712Z7
SPECIAL SENSOR MICROWAVE IMAGER PASS FURTHER INDICATES A FULLY
EXPOSED LLCC. THE UW-CIMSS UPPER LEVEL WIND ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT
THE SYSTEM IS SOUTH OF THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE AXIS IN AN AREA OF 20
TO 30 KNOTS OF VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. TC 06S IS EXPECTED TO TRACK
WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE LOW TO MID-
LEVEL RIDGE TO THE SOUTHEAST. TC 06S SHOULD CONTINUE WEAKENING AS IT
ENCOUNTERS INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND SLIGHTLY COOLER SEA
SURFACE TEMPERATURES. TC 06S SHOULD DISSIPATE WITHIN THE NEXT 24-36
HOURS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 241800Z5 IS 15 FEET. NEXT
