AMPN/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT WTPS21 PGTW 200300//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
195 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 18.3S2 167.1W5 TO 24.1S7
163.2W2 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 200230Z7 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS
LOCATED NEAR 20.8S0 165.0W2.   THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTHWARD AT
05 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS:
THIS SUPERSEDES REF A. ANIMATED VISIBLE AND INFRARED IMAGERY REVEAL
A WEAK LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER PERSISTS WEST OF THE DEEP
CONVECTION. A 192029Z3 SPECIAL SENSOR MICROWAVE IMAGER (SSM/I) SHOWS
MOST OF THE CONVECTION IS ASSOCIATED WITH LOW LEVEL CONVERGENCE EAST
OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 191717Z6 QUICKSCAT
PASS CONFIRMED A WEAK LLCC OUTSIDE OF THE DEEP CONVECTION. WATER
VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS MAINTAINING GOOD OUTFLOW
ALOFT. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL
CYCLONE REMAINS GOOD.
3. JUSTIFICATION FOR COR: TO CORRECT MANOP LINE FROM PGTW TO PHNC
AND CORRECT THE DTG OF METSAT IMAGERY FROM 192330Z8 TO 200230Z7.
4. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
210300Z6.//

REMARKS:
TROPICAL CYCLONE 11P, LOCATED 205 NM WEST-SOUTHWEST OF 
RAROTONGA ISLAND IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC OCEAN, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEAST 
AT 11 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED 
ON 201730Z3 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS 
BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 35 KNOTS. ANIMATED 
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS IMPROVING ORGANIZATION OVER THE 
PAST 12 HOURS WITH DEEP CONVECTION WRAPPING AROUND THE EASTERN SEMI-
CIRCLE OF THE SYSTEM. A 201615Z5 SPECIAL SENSOR MICROWAVE IMAGER 
PASS DEPICTS DEEP CONVECTION PRIMARILY EAST OF THE LOW LEVEL 
CIRCULATION CENTER. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY DEPICTS IMPROVED 
OUTFLOW OVER THE SYSTEM. AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH TO THE SOUTHWEST IS 
EXPECTED TO STEER THE SYSTEM SOUTHEAST THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. 
THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY AT A CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE IN THE 
NEXT 24 HOURS BEFORE UNDERGOING EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION LATE IN THE 
FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 201800Z1 IS 12 
FEET. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS REF A, NAVPACMETOCCEN

REMARKS:
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 11P (OMA), LOCATED 155 NM SOUTH OF RAROTONGA 
ISLAND IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC OCEAN, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEAST AT 19 
KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 
210530Z1 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS

NEARBY SYNOPTIC REPORT OF 47 KNOTS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE 
IMAGERY DEPICTS IMPROVING ORGANIZATION OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS WITH 
DEEP CONVECTION WRAPPING AROUND THE EASTERN SEMI-CIRCLE OF THE 
SYSTEM. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY DEPICTS IMPROVED OUTFLOW OVER 
THE SYSTEM. TC 11P IS EXPECTED TO TRACK SOUTHEAST UNDER THE STEERING 
INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE EAST. THE SYSTEM 
IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY SLIGHTLY IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS BEFORE 
UNDERGOING EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION LATE IN THE FORECAST PERIOD. TC 
11P IS EXPECTED TO COMPLETE EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION BY THE 48 HOUR 
FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 210600Z9 IS 16

REMARKS:
TROPICAL CYCLONE 11P, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 430 NM SOUTHWEST OF
DAHUREI ISLAND, IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC OCEAN, HAS TRACKED 
SOUTHEASTWARD AT 35 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING 
POSTION IS BASED ON A 220530Z2 INFRARED IMAGERY. THE WARNING 
INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 45 
KNOTS. SATELLITE ANIMATION DEPICTS TC 11P HAS COMPLETED ITS EXTRA-
TROPICAL TRANSITION. IMAGERY ALSO REVEALS THAT THE MAJORITY OF 
CONVECTION IS DISPLACED WELL TO THE SOUTHEAST OF THE CENTER. TC 11P 
IS FORECAST TO CONTNUE ON A SOUTHEASTWARD TRACK THROUGH THE PERIOD. 
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 220600Z0 IS 18 FEET. 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.//
