SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT 040621ZMAR2003//
RMKS/
1. IMMEDIATE DELIVERY REQ TO AMEMBASSY SUVA
2. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 150 NM RADIUS OF 19.5S5 152.0E8 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 AND SYNOPTIC DATA AT
040530Z2 INDICATE THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR
20.1S3 152.1E9. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04
KNOTS.
3. REMARKS:
THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 20.3S5 152.9E7 IS NOW
LOCATED NEAR 20.1S3 152.1E9, APPROXIMATELY 400 NM EAST-SOUTHEAST OF
CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL IMAGERY INDICATES
INCREASED ORGANIZATION OF THE DEEP CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH A
DEVELOPING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). ALTHOUGH, QUIKSCAT
REVEALS ELONGATED TROUGHING, WITH THE STRONGEST WINDS WELL AWAY FROM
THE LLCC. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES DECREASED VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR POLEWARD OF THE SYSTEM AND FAVORABLE DIVERGENCE ALOFT. MAXIMUM
SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA
LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 998 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS
IS NOW GOOD.
4. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
050630Z4.

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 22P, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 550 NM, EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 12
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
041130Z9 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED
ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 30 AND 45 KNOTS. TC 22S
IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TRACKING SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGH THE NEXT 12
HOURS UNDER WEAK STEERING INFLUENCE BEFORE TURNING EQUATORWARD FOR
THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD AS THE LOW TO MID-LEVEL RIDGE
SOUTH OF TC 22S BUILDS EQUATORWARD. TC 22S IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY
SLIGHTLY IN RESPONSE TO DECREASED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR EARLY IN THE
FORECAST PERIOD. THE DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, NCEP
AVIATION, AUSTRALIA'S GLOBAL AND REGIONAL MODELS AND UKMET (EGRR)
ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS SOLUTION. OUR FORECAST IS BASED ON A
BLEND OF THE ABOVE AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 041200Z7

REMARKS:
130300Z7 POSITION NEAR 19.8S8 162.0E9.
THE WARNING IS AMENDED BASED ON AN INTENSIFICATION TREND HIGHER THAN
PREVIOUSLY FORECAST. TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 22P (ERICA), IS LOCATED
APPROXIMATELY 310 NM WEST-NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, AND
WAS TRACKING SOUTHEASTWARD AT 09 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS.
THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 122330Z1 ENHANCED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 125 KNOTS. TC 22P IS FORECAST TO
CONTINUE ON A SOUTHEASTWARD TRACK ALONG THE LOW TO MID-LEVEL RIDGE
LOCATED TO THE EAST-NORTHEAST OF THE SYSTEM. TC 22P CONTINUES TO
INTENSIFY IN FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL DIVERGENCE AND WEAK VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR BELOW THE RIDGE AXIS, AND IS FORECAST TO BEGIN TO SLOWLY
WEAKEN AFTER 24 HOURS AS VERTICAL SHEAR INCREASES. THE AVAILABLE
DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, GFDN, UKMET OFFICE (EGRR), AND
NCEP AVIATION (AVN) MODELS ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO,
ALL MAINTAIN THE GENERAL TRACK SOUTHEAST. OUR FORECAST IS BASED ON A
CONSENSUS OF THE AVAILABLE AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT

130900Z3 POSITION NEAR 20.5S7 162.4E3.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 22P (ERICA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 115 NM 
WEST-NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKING SOUTH-
SOUTHEASTWARD AT 07 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING 
POSITION IS BASED ON 130530Z2 VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING 
INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 127 
AND 140 KNOTS. TC 22P IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE ON A SOUTHEASTWARD 
TRACK ALONG THE LOW TO MID-LEVEL RIDGE LOCATED TO THE EAST-NORTHEAST 
OF THE SYSTEM. TC 22P IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY SLIGHTLY IN THE NEXT 
12 HOURS AS IT REMAINS IN FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL DIVERGENCE AND WEAK 
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR BELOW THE RIDGE AXIS. THEREAFTER, TC 22P IS 
EXPECTED TO WEAKEN RAPIDLY AS VERTICAL WIND SHEAR INCREASES AND THE 
SYSTEM BEGINS EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION NEAR THE END OF THE FORECAST 
PERIOD. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, GFDN, 
UKMET OFFICE (EGRR), AND NCEP AVIATION (AVN) MODELS ARE IN GOOD 
AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. OUR FORECAST IS BASED ON A CONSENSUS 
OF THE AVAILABLE AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 130600Z0 
IS 20 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 132100Z7 AND 140900Z4. REFER TO 
TROPICAL CYCLONE 24S (CRAIG) WARNINGS (WTPS33 PGTW) FOR THE FINAL
