Tropical Cyclone DIANNE-JERY : JTWC Advisories
Season 2001-2002 Summaries (Operational Data): [AU] [SIO] [SPAC] [SH]
---> Tropical Cyclone DIANNE-JERY Track Map and Data

RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
180 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 10.9S0 101.3E5 TO 13.5S9 95.7E1
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 20 TO 25 KNOTS. METSAT
IMAGERY AT 060830Z7 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS
LOCATED NEAR 11.1S3 101.1E3. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTHWESTWARD
AT 06 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS:
THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 10.5S6 100.9E0 IS NOW
LOCATED NEAR 11.1S3 101.1E3, APPROXIMATELY 255 NM EAST-NORTHEAST OF
THE COCOS ISLANDS. VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS AN INCREASE IN
ORGANIZATION OF THE DEEP CONVECTION NEAR THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC) WITH A DEVELOPING BAND IN THE SOUTHERN QUADRANT. THE
060000Z6 200 MB ANAL REVEALED THAT THE AREA IS UNDERNEATH THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AXIS. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY REVEALS AN
APPROACHING MAJOR SHORTWAVE TROUGH TO THE SOUTHWEST WHICH SHOULD
ENHANCE POLEWARD OUTFLOW AND FURTHER DEVELOPMENT. A RECENT QUIKSCAT
PASS INDICATED 20 TO 25 KNOT WINDS ASSOCIATED WITH THE LLCC. MAXIMUM
SUSTAINED WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 20 TO 25 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL
PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE 1005 MB. BECAUSE OF THE INCREASE IN
CONVECTIVE ORGANIZATION AND MORE FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT,
THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE
WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS NOW GOOD.

REMARKS:
070300Z0 POSITION NEAR 12.6S9 97.7E3.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 21S HAS DEVELOPED OVER THE SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN ABOUT
76 NM EAST-SOUTHEAST OF COCOS ISLAND. TC 21S HAS TRACED WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING
POSITION IS BASED ON 062330Z4 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE
CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 35 KNOTS.
SATELLITE ANIMATION AND RECENT MICROWAVE IMAGERY DEPICT SIGNIFICANT
DEVELOPMENT OF DEEP CONVECTION OVER THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
(LLCC). A MID-LEVEL RIDGE EXTENDING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD OFF OF THE
WEST COAST OF AUSTRALIA IS EXPECTED TO INFLUENCE THE TRACK THROUGH
THE PERIOD. AVAILABLE NWP (NOGAPS, UKMET SPECTRAL, AND AVN) WERE
USED AS THE BASIS OF OUR FORECAST. TC 21S SHOULD CONTINUE TO
INTENSIFY OVER THE NEXT 48 HOURS AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS BENEATH A
FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 070000Z7

REMARKS:

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (DIANNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 260 NM
SOUTHWEST OF THE COCOS ISLANDS IN THE SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN, HAS
TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 15 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE
WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 072330Z5 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY AND
A 072300Z2 TROPICAL RAINFALL MEASURING MISSION (TRMM) PASS. THE
CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES
OF 55 AND 65 KNOTS. SATELLITE ANIMATION DEPICTS CONTINUED
ORGANIZATION OF DEEP CONVECTION OVER THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC). THE 0723000Z2 TRMM PASS REVEALED TIGHTLY CURVED BANDS
WITH A DEVELOPING BANDING EYE FEATURE. THE SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY BEING
STEERED TO THE WEST-SOUTHWEST UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE MID-LEVEL
RIDGE LOCATED SOUTHEAST OF THE SYSTEM. TC 21S IS FORECAST TO TRACK
WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS BEFORE TURING MORE TO THE
SOUTHWEST IN RESPONSE TO THE APPROACH OF A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH. THE
FORECAST IS BASED ON THE CONSENSUS OF FOUR AVAILABLE NWP MODELS
(NOGAPS, UKMET SPECTRAL, NCEP AVN, AND GFDN). TC 21S SHOULD CONTINUE
TO INTENSIFY OVER THE NEXT 48 HOURS AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS BENEATH A

REMARKS:
081500Z4 POSITION NEAR 15.7S3 90.3E2.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (DIANNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 400 NM
WEST-SOUTHWEST OF THE COCOS ISLANDS IN THE SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN, HAS
TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 12 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE
WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 081130Z3 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY.
THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 77 AND 90 KNOTS. EARLIER VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY
REVEALED A DEVELOPING CLOUD FILLED BANDING EYE FEATURE. ANIMATED
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATES AN IMPROVED SINGLE POLEWARD OUTFLOW
CHANNEL ENHANCED BY THE APPROACHING SHORT WAVE TROUGH. THE SYSTEM IS
CURRENTLY TRACKING TO THE WEST-SOUTHWEST UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE
MID-LEVEL RIDGE LOCATED SOUTHEAST OF THE SYSTEM. TC IS FORECAST TO
TRACK WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD OVER THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS BEFORE TURNING
MORE TO THE SOUTH IN RESPONSE TO THE APPROACH OF A MID-LATITUDE
TROUGH. THE FORECAST IS BASED ON THE CONSENSUS OF SIX AVAILABLE NWP
MODELS (NOGAPS, UKMET SPECTRAL, NCEP AVN, TCLAPS, TLAPS, AND GFDN).
TC 21S IS EXPECTED TO REACH ITS MAXIMUM INTENSITY IN 24 TO 36 HOURS
AS IT TRACKS BENEATH A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT. THEREAFTER, IT SHOULD
BEGIN TO SLOWLY WEAKEN AS IT ENCOUNTERS INCREASING VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 081200Z1 IS 17 FEET.

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (DIANNE-JERY), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 500
NM SOUTHWEST OF THE COCOS ISLANDS IN THE SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN, HAS
TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE
WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 082330Z6 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY.
THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 90 KNOTS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
INDICATES A 15 NM EYE HAS DEVELOPED. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY
DEPICTS ENHANCED POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL DUE TO AN APPROACHING
SHORT WAVE TROUGH. THE SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY TRACKING TO THE SOUTHWEST
UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE
SOUTHEAST. TC 21S IS FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTHWESTWARD OVER THE NEXT
24 TO 36 HOURS BEFORE TURNING SOUTH AS THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
WEAKENS. THE FORECAST IS BASED ON A CONSENSUS OF SIX AVAILABLE NWP
MODELS, INCLUDING NOGAPS, UKMET SPECTRAL, NCEP AVN, TCLAPS, TLAPS,
AND GFDN. TC 21S IS EXPECTED TO REACH ITS MAXIMUM INTENSITY IN 24
HOURS IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT, THEN SLOWLY WEAKEN AS IT TRACKS

CONVECTION BEING SHEARED TO THE SOUTHEAST OF THE LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE 110000Z2 SSMI PASS ALSO INDICATES A
COMPLETELY EXPOSED LLCC. THE SSMI PASS ALSO SHOWS A LARGE BAND OF
DRY AIR TO THE NORTH BEGINNING TO WRAP INTO THE LLCC. THESE FACTORS
CONTINUE TO SUGGEST THAT EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION IS WELL UNDER WAY.
THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING SOUTHEASTWARD AND IS
EXPECTED TO COMPLETE EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION IN 24 HOURS. TC 21S
WILL CONTINUE TO WEAKEN AS IT TRACKS POLEWARD AND ENCOUNTERS
INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. THE FORECAST IS BASED ON A CONSENSUS
OF SEVEN AVAILABLE NUMERICAL WEATHER PREDICTION MODELS INCLUDING
NOGAPS, UK-MET OFFICE, NCEP AVN, TCLAPS, TLAPS, AFWA MM5 AND GFDN.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 110000Z2 IS 24 FEET. NEXT
WARNING AT 111500Z8. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S (BONNIE)

REMARKS:
111500Z8 POSITION NEAR 23.2S7 89.1E8.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (DIANNE-JERY) IN THE SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN,
HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 07 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS.
THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 111130Z7 MULTI-SPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY AND A RECENT TROPICAL RAINFALL MEASUREMENT MISSION (TRMM)
PASS. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 35 KNOTS. ANIMATED MULTI-SPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
INDICATES A COMPLETELY EXPOSED LOW LEVEL WITH THE REMAINING DEEP
CONVECTION SHEARED TO THE SOUTHEAST. THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO
CONTINUE TRACKING SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AND COMPLETE EXTRATROPICAL
TRANSITION IN THE NEXT 12 HOURS. TC 21S WILL CONTINUE TO WEAKEN AS
IT TRACKS POLEWARD AND ENCOUNTERS INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR.
THE FORECAST IS BASED ON A CONSENSUS OF SEVEN AVAILABLE NUMERICAL
WEATHER PREDICTION MODELS INCLUDING NOGAPS, UK-MET OFFICE, NCEP AVN,
TCLAPS, TLAPS, AFWA MM5 AND GFDN. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
111200Z5 IS 15 FEET. THIS IS THE FINAL WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM BY THE
JOINT TYPHOON WARNING CENTER (NAVPACMETOCCEN). THE SYSTEM WILL BE
CLOSELY MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF REGENERATION. REFER TO TROPICAL
CYCLONE 22S (BONNIE) WARNINGS (WTXS32 PGTW) FOR THEE FINAL
WARNING.//
