SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT 080621ZFEB2003//
RMKS/
1. IMMEDIATE DELIVERY REQ TO AMEMBASSY PORT LOUIS
2. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 160 NM RADIUS OF 15.3S9 54.3E2 WITHIN THE NEXT 06 TO 24 HOURS.
AVAILABLE DATA DOES NOT JUSTIFY ISSUANCE OF NUMBERED TROPICAL
CYCLONE WARNING AT THIS TIME. WINDS IN THE AREA ARE ESTIMATED
TO BE 25 TO 30 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY AT 080530Z6 INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 15.6S2 55.6E6. THE SYSTEM IS
MOVING SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 03 KNOTS.
3. REMARKS:
THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 15.1S7 55.7E7, IS
NOW LOCATED NEAR 15.6S2 55.6E6 APPROXIMATELY 290 NM NORTH-NORTHWEST
OF MAURITIUS. ANIMATED INFRARED IMAGERY SHOWS IMPROVED CONVECTION
NEAR A LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE 200 MB ANALYSIS
INDICATES GOOD DIFFLUENCE ALOFT AND WEAK TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR OVER THE AREA. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED
AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE
NEAR 1004 MB. BASED ON THE IMPROVED ORGANIZATION OF THE CONVECTION,
THE POTENTIAL FOR DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE
WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS NOW UPGRADED TO GOOD.
4. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
090630Z8.//

REMARKS:
082100Z1 POSITION NEAR 14.5S0 55.9E9.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 350 NM NORTH-
NORTHWEST OF MAURITIUS IN THE SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN, HAS REMAINED 
QUASISTATIONARY OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED 
ON 081730Z9 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING 
INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 30 
AND 35 KNOTS. TC 16S IS EXPECTED TO DRIFT SLOWLY SOUTHWARD AND THEN 
WESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE LOW TO MID-LEVEL RIDGE 
SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM FOR THE FIRST 24 HOURS. AFTERWARDS, A MORE 
POLEWARD TRACK IS FORECAST AS A DEEPENING TROUGH WEAKENS THE 
STEERING RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. TC 16S IS FORECAST TO INTENSITY AT JUST 
BELOW A CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD AS IT 
CONSOLIDATES AND REMAINS IN A MODERATE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT. THE 
FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF PERSISTENCE, NOGPS, THE UKMET GLOBAL 
(EGRR) AND THE BETA ADVECTION MODELS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE 
HEIGHT AT 081800Z7 IS 14 FEET. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS 
REF A, NAVPACMETOCCEN 080621Z FEB 03 TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION 
ALERT (WTXS21 PGTW 080630). NEXT WARNINGS AT 090900Z8 AND 092100Z2.

FURTHER NORTH BASED UPON RECENT VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY AND
SPECIAL SENSOR MICROWAVE IMAGERY SUPPORTING CONSOLIDATION IN THIS
VICINITY. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 090530Z7 VISIBLE AND
ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED

EXPECTED TO LOOP TO THE NORTHEAST BEFORE TRACKING POLEWARD AS A
DEEPENING TROUGH WEAKENS A RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. TC 16S IS FORECAST TO
INTENSIFY AT A CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE IN A FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL
ENVIRONMENT. THE FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF PERSISTENCE,
NOGAPS, UKMET GLOBAL (EGRR), AVN AND BETA ADVECTION MODELS. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 090600Z5 IS 15 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT

102100Z4 POSITION NEAR 11.9S1 54.9E8.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 520 NM NORTH-
NORTHWEST OF MAURITIUS IN THE SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN, HAS TRACKED
SOUTH-SOUTHEAST AT 06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING
POSITION IS BASED ON 101730Z2 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY.
THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 45 AND 55 KNOTS. A 101743Z6 SSM/I DEPICTS THE DEEP
CONVECTION IN THE NORTHERN AND WESTERN QUADRANTS. TC 16S IS EXPECTED
TO CONTINUE TRACKING SOUTHEAST AS IT BEGINS TO INTERACT WITH TC 17S
LOCATED TO THE EAST. TC 16S IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY AT
CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT. THE FORECAST IS
BASED ON A BLEND OF PERSISTENCE, NOGAPS, GFDN, UKMET GLOBAL (EGRR),
AVN AND BETA ADVECTION MODELS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
101800Z0 IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 110900Z1 AND 112100Z5.

REMARKS:
130900Z3 POSITION NEAR 19.8S8 58.9E2.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (GERRY), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 65 NM 
EAST-NORTHEAST OF MAURITIUS IN THE SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN, HAS TRACKED 
EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 13 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING 
POSITION IS BASED ON 130530Z2 VISIBLE AND INFRARED SATELLITE 
IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT 
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 102 KNOTS. ANIMATED MULTI-SPECTRAL IMAGERY 
REVEALS THAT TC 16S HAS DEVELOPED A WELL-DEFINED EYE FEATURE AS IT 
CONTINUES TO INTENSIFY. UPPER AIR ANALYSIS INDICATES FAVORABLE 
OUTFLOW IN ALL QUADRANTS. THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE ON A 
SOUTHEASTWARD TRACK AROUND THE LOW TO MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO 
THE NORTHEAST. TC 16S SHOULD CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY DURING THE NEXT 
12 HOURS, THEN WEAKEN AS IT ENCOUNTERS INCREASING VERTICAL WIND 
SHEAR. ALL THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS ARE IN AGREEMENT WITH THIS 
SCENARIO. THE FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF NOGAPS, GFDN, UKMET 
GLOBAL (EGRR), AFWA MM5, AND THE NCEP AVIATION (AVN) MODEL.

REMARKS:
141500Z1 POSITION NEAR 25.0S7 63.6E5.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (GERRY), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 420 NM
SOUTHEAST OF MAURITIUS IN THE SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN, HAS TRACKED
SOUTHEASTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING
POSITION IS BASED ON 141130Z0 INFRARED AND VISIBLE SATELLITE
IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 65 AND 77 KNOTS. ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY
REVEALED AN EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER DECOUPLED
APPROXIMATELY 30 NM NORTHWEST OF THE DEEP CONVECTION. THE SYSTEM
SHOULD CONTINUE TRACKING SOUTHEASTWARD FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS TOWARDS
A WEAKNESS IN THE LOW TO MID-LEVEL RIDGE CAUSED BY A TRANSIENT MID-
LATITUDE TROUGH. THIS TROUGH SHOULD MOVE EAST AS THE RIDGE BUILDS
BACK IN. AS A RESULT, THE CYCLONE IS EXPECTED TO TRACK EASTWARD
THROUGH THE REST OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. TC 16S SHOULD CONTINUE TO
WEAKEN AS IT REMAINS DECOUPLED UNDER UNFAVORABLE VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS EXCEPT FOR UKMET GLOBAL (EGRR) ARE
IN AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. EGRR BUILDS THE RIDGE IN TO THE
SOUTH SOONER AND AS A RESULT KEEPS THE SYSTEM NEARLY STATIONARY. THE
FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF NOGAPS, GFDN, UKMET GLOBAL (EGRR),
AFWA MM5, AND THE NCEP AVIATION (AVN) MODEL. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 141200Z8 IS 24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 150300Z9 AND
151500Z2. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 17S (HAPE) WARNINGS (WTXS33
PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 18S
(ISHA) WARNINGS (WTXS34 PGTW) FOR THE FINAL WARNING.//

REMARKS:
150300Z9 POSITION NEAR 27.1S0   65.8E9.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (GERRY) HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 17
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS IN THE SOUTHERN INDIAN OCEAN. THE
WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 142330Z3 ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY.
THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF
35 AND 45 KNOTS. ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS AN EXPOSED BROAD
LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER DEVOID OF CONVECTION. A WEAK COLD FRONT
FEATURE APPEARS TO HAVE DEVELOPED AND EXTENDS NORTH AND WEST OF THE
SYSTEM. A MORE WELL DEFINED AREA OF CLOUDS TO THE EAST OF THE SYSTEM
APPEARS TO BE A MODERATE WARM FRONT WITH WARM AIR ADVECTION EVIDENT
IN THE MODEL FIELDS. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES AN UPPER-LEVEL
JET SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM, AND AN ASSOCIATED GRADIENT OF INCREASING
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR TO THE SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM. THE SYSTEM IS
FORECAST TO TRACK EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AS IT CONTIUES TO WEAKEN AND
COMPLETE EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION WITHIN THE NEXT 12 HOURS. THE
AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT THROUGH 36 HOURS, THEN
DIVERGE DEPENDING ON THE MAINTAINED STRENGTH OF THE SYSTEM IN THE
MODELS. THE FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF NOGAPS, UKMET GLOBAL
(EGRR), AFWA MM5, AND THE NCEP AVIATION (AVN) MODEL. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 150000Z6 IS 24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
151500Z2 AND 160300Z0. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 17S (HAPE)

151500Z2 POSITION NEAR 27.9S8 67.1E4.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (GERRY), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 700 NM 
SOUTHEAST OF PORT LOUIS, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 06 KNOTS OVER 
THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 151130Z1 VISIBLE 
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE 
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 30 KNOTS AND AN EARLIER QUIKSCAT PASS SHOWING 
A BROAD AREA OF GALE FORCE WINDS. ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS 
AN EXPOSED BROAD LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. THE SYSTEM CONTINUES 
TO WEAKEN OVER COOL WATERS AND IS FORECAST TO DISSIPATE AS A 
SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 12 HOURS. MAXIMUM 
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 151200Z9 IS 16 FEET. THIS IS THE FINAL 
WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM BY THE ALTERNATE JOINT TYPHOON WARNING CENTER 
(FLENUMETOCCEN). THE SYSTEM WILL BE CLOSELY MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF 
REGENERATION. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 17S (HAPE) FOR THE FINAL 
WARNING (WTXS33 PGTW). ALTERNATE JTWC SENDS.//
