1. IMMEDIATE DELIVERY REQ TO AMEMBASSY SUVA
2. AMEMBASSY SUVA REQ PASS TO USAID OFDA ADVISOR
3. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
090 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 9.1S0 75.3E5 TO 12.2S5 71.8E6
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
170530Z6 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 9.2S1
75.2E4. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTHWESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS.
4. REMARKS:
THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 7.0S7 75.8E0 IS NOW
LOCATED NEAR 9.2S1 75.2E4, ABOUT 200 NM ESE OF DIEGO GARCIA.
ANIMATED VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES INCREASING ORGANIZATION
OF A FAIRLY WELL DEFINED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). RECENT
170309Z0 SSMI PASS ALONG WITH 170328Z1 PARTIAL TRMM PASS BOTH
INDICATE INCREASING CONSOLIDATION OF CONVECTION NEAR THE LLCC WITH
DEVELOPING BANDING IN THE NORTHWEST SEMICIRCLE OF THE CIRCULATION.
200 MB ANALYSIS INDICATES CONVECTION CURRENTLY IN A REGION OF WEAK
TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND MOVING INTO AN AREA OF STRONG
DIFFLUENT FLOW ALOFT AND A LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ENVIRONMENT. THE
POTENTIAL FOR DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN
THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS NOW GOOD.
5. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
180630Z8.//

REMARKS:
172100Z1 POSITION NEAR 11.8S0 72.0E9.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (DINA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 230 NM SOUTH
OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 14 KNOTS DURING THE
PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 171730Z9 INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 35 TO 55 KNOTS. RECENT SPECIAL SENSOR
MICROWAVE IMAGERY (SSM/I) INDICATES A DEVELOPING EYEWALL. THE SYSTEM
IS EXPECTED TO TRACK SOUTHWESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF
THE LOW TO MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. AN APPROACHING
MID-LATITUDE TROUGH IS EXPECTED TO CREATE A WEAKNESS IN THE MID-
LATITUDE RIDGE SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM THAT SHOULD CAUSE THE TRACK TO
TURN MORE POLEWARD AFTER 48 HOURS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT
AT 171800Z7 IS 14 FEET. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS REF A,

192100Z3 POSITION NEAR 17.3S1 65.4E5.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (DINA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 200 NM
NORTHEAST OF RODRIGUES ISLAND, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 06
KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
191730Z1 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED
ON SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 102 AND 115 KNOTS. ANIMATED
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS COOLING CLOUD TOPS AND A RAGGED
EYE FORMING AT THIS TIME. A MID-LEVEL HIGH HEIGHT CENTER SITUATED
OVER THE SOUTHERN TIP OF MADAGASCAR IS FORECAST TO BUILD GRADUALLY
EASTWARD OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS CREATING A MORE WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD
MOTION IN THE SYSTEM. OUR FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF AVAILABLE
NWP (NOGAPS, AVN, GFDN, UKMET SPECTRAL). MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 191800Z9 IS 23 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 200900Z1 AND

REMARKS:
200900Z1 POSITION NEAR 18.1S0 63.8E7.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (DINA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 110 NM
NORTH-NORTHEAST OF RODRIGUES ISLAND, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD
AT 09 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED
ON 200530Z0 VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS
BASED ON SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 127 TO 140 KNOTS. IMAGERY
ANALYSIS INDICATES A SIGNIFICANT COOLING TREND OF THE TOPS OF THE
CONVECTIVE RING, AS WELL AS THE EMERGENCE OF A DISTINCT (APPROX) 19
NM EYE. THEREFORE, WE BUMPED UP THE INTENSITY TO 130 KNOTS. A
BUILDING MID-LEVEL RIDGE EXTENDING SOUTHEASTWARD FROM THE SOUTHERN
TIP OF MADAGASCAR TO (APPROX) 30.0S3 60.0E6 SHOULD INFLUENCE A
GENERALLY WESTWARD TRACK THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. OUR FORECAST
IS BASED ON A BLEND OF AVAILABLE NWP (NOGAPS, AVN, GFDN, UKMET
SPECTRAL) AND THE DEEP LAYER BETA ADVECTION MODEL BASED ON THE
200000Z2 NOGAPS RUN. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 200600Z8 IS
26 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 202100Z5 AND 210900Z2.//

REMARKS:
210900Z2 POSITION NEAR 19.0S0 60.0E6.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (DINA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 185 NM 
EAST-NORTHEAST OF PORT LOUIS, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS 
DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 210530Z1 
VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON 
SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 115 AND 127 KNOTS. A 210505Z3 SSM/I 
PASS DEPICTED AN OUTER CONVECTIVE RING DEVELOPING AROUND THE 
EXISTING INNER EYEWALL. CURRENT VISIBLE IMAGERY REVEALS EXPANSION OF 
THE EYE FEATURE. A CONCENTRIC EYEWALL EVENT MAY BE IN THE MAKING, 
WHICH WOULD CAUSE A TEMPORARY INTENSIFICATION PERIOD. THE 
SUBTROPICAL MID-LEVEL RIDGE EXTENDING EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD FROM THE 
SOUTHERN TIP OF MADAGASCAR SHOULD INFLUENCE A GENERALLY WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK THROUGH THE PERIOD. OUR FORECAST IS BASED ON A 
BLEND OF AVAILABLE NWP (NOGAPS, AVN, GFDN, UKMET SPECTRAL) AND 
PERSISTENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 210600Z9 IS 26 FEET. 
NEXT WARNINGS AT 212100Z6 AND 220900Z3.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (DINA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 75 NM
NORTHEAST OF PORT LOUIS, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 11 KNOTS DURING THE
PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 211730Z4 INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 115 AND 127 KNOTS. A 211738Z2 SSM/I PASS IS NO
LONGER INDICATING CONCENTRIC EYEWALLS WITH 26 NM EYE DIAMETER NOTED
IN LATEST INFRARED IMAGERY. THE MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE SOUTH OF
THE SYSTEM SHOULD INFLUENCE A GENERAL WESTWARD TRACK THROUGH THE NEXT
24 HOURS. AN UPSTREAM TROUGH IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN THIS RIDGE BY 36
HOURS AND ALLOW FOR TC 10S (DINA) TO BEGIN TRACKING SOUTHWEST THROUGH
THE REMAINDER OF THE PERIOD. THE FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF
PERSISTENCE AND AVAILABLE NWP (NOGAPS, AVN, GFDN, UKMET) WHICH ARE

232100Z8 POSITION NEAR 23.0S5 53.0E8.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (DINA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 175 NM
SOUTHWEST OF REUNION ISLAND, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 09 KNOTS
DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
231730Z6 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A 231501Z2 SSM/I PASS. THE
WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES
OF 90 AND 102 KNOTS. TC 10S (DINA) SHOULD CONTINUE TRACKING
SOUTHWARD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A MID-LEVEL RIDGE SITUATED
TO THE EAST AND AN APPROACHING MID-LAT TROUGH. MICROWAVE IMAGERY
INDICATES THE ONSEET OF EYEWALL EROSION DURING THE PAST 12 HOU

240900Z5 POSITION NEAR 25.9S6 52.7E4.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (DINA), LOCATED SOUTHEAST OF MADAGASCAR,
HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 14 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE
WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 240530Z4 VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE
WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES
OF 77 TO 90 KNOTS. ANIMATION DEPICTS THAT TC 10S (DINA) HAS BEGUN
EXTRA TROPICAL TRANSITION. TC 10S IS FORECAST TO TURN INCREASINGLY
SOUTHEASTWARD BY MID PERIOD AS THE SYSTEM INTERACTS WITH A MID-
LATITUDE BAROCLINIC SYSTEM. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
240600Z2 IS 26 FEET. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 11S (NO NAME)
WARNINGS (WTXS32 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES. NEXT WARNINGS AT

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (DINA), LOCATED SOUTHEAST OF MADAGASCAR, 
HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD 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 55 KNOTS. ANIMATION DEPICTS THAT TC 10S

IS FORECAST TO TURN INCREASINGLY SOUTHEASTWARD AND ACCELERATE AS IT 
INTERACTS WITH A MID-LATITUDE BAROCLINIC SYSTEM. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT 
WAVE HEIGHT AT 241800Z5 IS 26 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.
