RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 180 NM RADIUS OF 10.5S6 82.5E5 WITHIN THE NEXT 03 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 052030Z0 INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 10.5S6 82.5E5. THE SYSTEM IS
MOVING SOUTHWESTWARD AT 03 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS:
THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 10.5S6 82.5E5 HAS
REMAINED QUASI-STATIONARY, APPROXIMATELY 620 NM EAST-SOUTHEAST OF
DIEGO GARCIA. ANIMATED INFRARED IMAGERY SHOWS AN INCREASE IN THE
DEEP CONVECTION OVER THE PARTIALLY EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC). RECENT QUIKSCAT DATA REVEALS A DEFINED LLCC. THE
200MB ANALYSIS INDICATES THE REGION IS IN A MODERATE VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR ENVIRONMENT WITH GOOD OUTFLOW ALOFT. 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 IS NOW GOOD.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
062330Z4.//

REMARKS:
060900Z5 POSITION NEAR 11.4S6   83.0E1.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 01S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 663 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 7 KNOTS DURING
THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 060530Z4
VISIBLE AND INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS
BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 25 TO 35 KNOTS.
ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS AN EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC) APPROXIMATELY 30 NM EAST OF THE DEEP CONVECTION. THE
200 MB ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT THE DISTURBANCE IS UNDER THE UPPER
LEVEL RIDGE AXIS IN A REGION OF 20 TO 30 KNOTS OF VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 060600Z2 IS 9 FEET.
