SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT 050651Z FEB 03//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 170 NM RADIUS OF 12.4S7 163.6W6 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 25 TO 30 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY AT 050630Z4 INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 10.8S9 162.9W8.  THE SYSTEM IS
QUASI-STATIONARY AT 00 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS:
THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 10.0S1
162.4W3 IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 10.8S9 163.0W0, APPROXIMATELY 495 NM
EAST-NORTHEAST OF PAGO PAGO. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL AND ENHANCED
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THAT THE DEEP CONVECTION
CONTINUES TO ORGANIZE OVER AN AREA OF BROAD TROUGHING AT THE
SURFACE. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES FAVORABLE OUTFLOW ALOFT
ASSOCIATED WITH A POINT SOURCE AND MINIMAL VERTICAL WIND SHEAR.
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 22 TO 28 KNOTS AND
MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE 1002 MB. BASED ON
IMPROVED ORGANIZATION AND PERSISTANCE, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE
NEXT 24 HOURS IS NOW UPGRADED TO GOOD
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
060700Z3.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 15P, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 460 NM EAST-
NORTHEAST OF PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEAST AT 08 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 051730Z6 ENHANCED
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 30 TO 40 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL
ANALYSIS INDICATES FAVORABLE OUTFLOW ALOFT AND WEAK VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR OVER THE SYSTEM. TC 15P IS FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTH-SOUTHEAST
THROUGH 24 HOURS, THEN SOUTHWESTERLY THEREAFTER, WHILE INTENSIFYING
AT A CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. OUR FORECAST
IS BASED ON A CONSENSUS OF THE AVAILABLE NWP, CONSISTING OF NGPS,
THE UKMET GLOBAL SPECTRAL MODEL, AND THE BETA ADVECTION MODELS.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 051800Z4 IS 13 FEET. THIS WARNING

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 15P (DOVI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 370 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 04 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 071730Z8
ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED
ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 127 KNOTS. TC 15P HAS
DEVELOPED RAPIDLY AND HAS FORMED A SMALL SYMMETRICAL EYE IN THE PAST
12 HOURS. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES GOOD
OUTFLOW REMAINS TO THE EAST AND A POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL IS
BEGINNING TO DEVELOP. TC 15P IS FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTHWESTWARD
THROUGH 24 HOURS ALONG THE LOW TO MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
SOUTHEAST OF THE SYSTEM. A DEEPENING TROUGH TO THE SOUTHWEST IS
EXPECTED TO WEAKEN THE RIDGE BY THE MID-PERIOD AS IT PROPAGATES
EASTWARD, CAUSING THE TRACK TO BECOME MORE POLEWARD. TC 15P IS
FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY AT A CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE THROUGH
THE NEXT 24 HOURS AS OUTFLOW CONDITIONS REMAIN FAVORABLE BUT BEGIN
TO DECREASE IN INTENSITY BY THE END OF THIS FORECAST PERIOD. ALL THE
AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, INCLUDING NGPS, GFDN, UKMET (EGRR), AND NCEP
AVIATION (AVN) ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. OUR
FORECAST IS BASED ON PERSISTENCE AND A BLEND OF ALL THE AVAILABLE
DYNAMIC AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 071800Z6 IS 28

REMARKS:
092100Z2 POSITION NEAR 22.5S9 169.2W8.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 15P (DOVI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 450 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHEAST OF PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED SOUTH AT 06 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 091730Z0 ENHANCED
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 102 AND 115 KNOTS. ANIMATED
WATER VAPOR SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS GOOD POLEWARD OUTFLOW. TC 15P
IS FORECAST TO TRACK POLEWARD DURING THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS ALONG
THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A POLEWARD ORIENTED RIDGE TO THE EAST.
AFTERWARDS, A LOW TO MID-LEVEL RIDGE BUILDING SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM
WILL INFLUENCE A SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK NEAR THE END OF THE
FORECAST PERIOD. TC 15P IS FORECAST TO SLOWLY WEAKEN IN THE NEXT 24
HOURS. AFTERWARDS, THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO WEAKEN MORE RAPIDLY
TOWARDS THE END OF THE PERIOD AS IT TRACKS OVER COOLER SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES, INTO INCREASINGLY UNFAVORABLE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND
ENTRAINS DRY AIR. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, INCLUDING NGPS, GFDN,
UKMET (EGRR), AND NCEP AVIATION (AVN) ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH
THIS SCENARIO. OUR FORECAST IS BASED ON PERSISTENCE AND A BLEND OF
THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
091800Z8 IS 44 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 100900Z0 AND 102100Z4.//
