AMPN/REF IS TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT (WTPS21 PGTW 041930)//
RMKS/
1. IMMEDIATE DELIVERY REQ TO AMEMBASSY PORT MORESBY
2. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
155 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 18.6S5 164.3E4 TO 12.9S2
168.0E5 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 041630Z4 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 13.9S3 167.3E7. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTHWESTWARD AT 13 KNOTS.
3. REMARKS:
THE AREA OF CONVECTION LOCATED OVER NORTHERN VANAUATU, HAS CONTINUED
TO ORGANIZE OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. RECENT MICROWAVE IMAGERY
INDICATES THE BANDS OF STRONG CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH THE SYSTEM.
RECENT SYNOPTIC AND SCATTEROMETER DATA INDICATE A LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER ASSOCIATED WITH THE CONVECTION. UW-CIMSS VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR PRODUCT INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS UNDER WEAK TO MODERATE
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND BENEATH AN UPPER-LEVEL ANTI-CYCLONE. MINIMUM
SEA LEVEL PRESSURES IS ESTIMATED AT 1001 MB THE POTENTIAL FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24
HOURS IS UPGRADED TO GOOD.
4. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
051930Z8.

TROPICAL CYCLONE 19P (SOSE) HAS DEVELOPED OVER THE SOUTHERN
CORAL SEA JUST NORTH OF VANUATU. TC 19P HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT
08 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSTION IS BASED ON
051730Z6 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED
ON CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 30 TO 45 KNOTS. INFRARED ANIMATION
DEPICTS A SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN DEEP CONVECTION COVERAGE DURING
THE PAST 6 HOURS. WATER VAPOR LOOP REVEALS IMPRESSIVE OUTFLOW
OVER THE SYSTEM. TC 19P SHOULD DRIFT WESTWARD OVER THE NEXT 24
HOURS BEFORE SHOWING A MORE SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK. SYSTEM IS
FORECAST TO INTENSIFY AT A CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE THROUGH THE
PERIOD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 051800Z4 IS 12 FEET.

072100Z0 POSITION NEAR 18.2S1 168.0E5.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (SOSE), LOCATED JUST WEST OF EFATE ISLAND,
HAS TRACKED SOUTHEAST AT 12 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE
WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 071730Z8 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY AND
071800Z6 SYNOPTIC DATA. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON CURRENT
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 65 TO 70 KTS. ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY
INDICATES TC 19P HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS
AND MAINTAINED ORGANIZATION AS THE LOW-LEVEL FLOW CONTINUES TO
INTERACT WITH THE NEW HEBRIDES ISLANDS. TC 19P WILL CONTINUE TO
TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS IN RESPONSE TO MID-LEVEL
STEERING FLOW ASSOCIATED WITH RIDGING TO THE EAST AND A WEAK
MID-LEVEL TROUGH TO THE WEST OF THE SYSTEM. THE TROUGH TO THE WEST
OF TC 19P WILL BEGIN TO FILL AFTER 24 HOURS AS A WEAK MID-LEVEL RIDGE
PASSES TO THE SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM RESULTING IN SLOW SOUTHWARD
MOVEMENT THROUGH 48 HOURS. TC 19P WILL INTENSIFY SLOWLY OVER THE
NEXT 24 HOURS AS IT REMAINS IN A FAVORABLE UPPER-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 071800Z6 IS 20 FEET.
