RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
110 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 9.8S7 122.8E3 TO 11.2S4 118.6E6
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 311130Z9 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS
LOCATED NEAR 10.0S1 122.5E0. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 12 KNOTS.

THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 8.3S1 126.8E7 IS NOW
LOCATED NEAR 10.0S1 122.5E0, NEAR THE WESTERN COAST OF EAST TIMOR IN
THE SAVU SEA. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES
IMPROVED ORGANIZATION AND INCREASED SPIRAL BANDING AS THE SYSTEM
APPROACHES THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE AXIS. ANALYSIS ALOFT INDICATES WEAK
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND ENHANCED POLEWARD OUTFLOW. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED
SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL
PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED AT 1005 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT
OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS
UPGRADED TO GOOD.

020300Z5 POSITION NEAR 11.1S3 119.0E1.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 26S (INIGO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 60 NM
SOUTHWEST OF SUMBA ISLAND, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 012330Z9
VISIBLE AND ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING
INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 45
KNOTS. ANIMATED AND MICROWAVE SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A RECENT
QUIKSCAT PASS INDICATE SYSTEM ORGANIZATION HAS CONTINUED TO IMPROVE
OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. TC 26S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TRACKING IN A
GENERALLY WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD DIRECTION THROUGH 36 HOURS UNDER THE
STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE LOW TO MID-LEVEL RIDGE SOUTH OF THE
SYSTEM. AFTER 36 HOURS, TC 26S IS FORECAST TO TRACK MORE SOUTHWEST
AS A WEAKNESS IN THE RIDGE DEVELOPS TO THE SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF THE
SYSTEM. TC 26S IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY AT A CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE
UNDER A FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT, WITH ENHANCED POLEWARD
OUTFLOW, OVER THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE DYNAMIC AIDS CONSISTING OF
UKMET GLOBAL (EGRR), NCEP AVIATION (AVN), GFDN AND NOGAPS ARE IN
FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. DIFFERENCES IN TRACK DIRECTION
AND SPEED ARE DUE TO VARYING INITIAL AND FORECAST INTENSITIES, AS
WELL AS SOME INTERACTION WITH A LOW DEVELOPING OFF THE WEST COAST OF
SUMATRA. THE FORECAST IS BASED ON PERSISTENCE AND A BLEND OF ALL OF
THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
020000Z2 IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 021500Z8 AND 030300Z6.

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 26S (INIGO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 160 NM
SOUTHWEST OF SUMBA ISLAND, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 04
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON

IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 77 AND 90
KNOTS. A 022334Z4 SPECIAL SENSOR MICROWAVE IMAGER (SSM/I) PASS
INDICATES SYSTEM ORGANIZATION HAS DEVELOPED A 25 NM EYE. ANIMATED
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THE SYSTEM HAS CONSOLIDATED AND
INTENSIFIED OVER THE LAST 12 HOURS. TC 26S IS EXPECTED TO TRACK
WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD GUIDED BY THE MID TO
HIGH LEVEL RIDGE SITUATED TO THE SOUTHEAST OF THE SYSTEM. TC 26S IS
NOW EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY AT A CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE UNDER THE RIDGE
AXIS THROUGH 24 HOURS AND THEN BEGIN TO WEAKEN UNDER INCREASING
SHEAR. THE DYNAMIC AIDS CONSISTING OF UKMET GLOBAL (EGRR), NCEP
AVIATION (AVN), AFWA MM5, NOGAPS, AND THE AUSTRALIAN GLOBAL (TLAPS)
AND REGIONAL (TCLAPS) MODELS ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT. AVIATION AND
EGGR INITIALIZE THE SYSTEM WEAKER AND AS A RESULT, TRACKS TC 26S

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 26S (INIGO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 220 NM
SOUTHWEST OF SUMBA ISLAND, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 05
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
031130Z8 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY
IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 102 AND 115
KNOTS. TC 26S CONTINUES TO INTENSIFY IN A FAVORABLE OUTFLOW
ENVIRONMENT, AND IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE ON A WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD
TRACK AROUND THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE EAST-SOUTHEAST OF THE SYSTEM. TC
26S IS NOW EXPECTED TO CONTINUE INTENSIFICATION AT ABOVE A
CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE THROUGH THE NEXT 12 HOURS AND THEN HOLD
INTENSITY BEFORE SLIGHT WEAKENING OCCURS TOWARD THE END OF THE
FORECAST. THE SYSTEM WILL ENTER A REGION OF SIGNIFICANT VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR IN THE 72 TO 96 HOUR TIME FRAME, WHEN MORE PRONOUNCED
WEAKENING WILL OCCUR. THE DYNAMIC AIDS CONSISTING OF UKMET GLOBAL
(EGRR), AFWA MM5, NOGAPS, AND GFDN ARE IN CLOSE AGREEMENT WITH THIS
SCENARIO, WITH THE NCEP AVIATION MODEL TRACKING THE SYSTEM FURTHER
WEST BEFORE RECURVATURE. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON A CONSENSUS OF
THE DYNAMIC AIDS EXCLUDING THE AVIATION MODEL. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 031200Z6 IS 24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 040300Z7 AND

REMARKS:
050300Z8 POSITION NEAR 14.5S0 113.5E0.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 26S (INIGO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 475 NM
NORTH OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 05
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
042330Z2 MULTISPECTRAL AND ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE
WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES
OF 140 KNOTS. THE SYSTEM HAS AN 18NM SYMMETRICAL EYE. TC 26S IS
FORECAST TO CONTINUE ON A SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK THROUGH THE EARLY
PERIOD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE
SOUTHEAST. AFTERWARDS, TC 26S WILL BEGIN RECURVING TO THE SOUTHEAST
INTO A WEAKNESS IN THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE, MAKING LANDFALL OVER
NORTHWESTERN AUSTRALIA NEAR THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. TC 26S
WILL WEAKEN ONLY SLIGHTLY IN THE EARLY PERIOD AS IT TRACKS THROUGH A
FAVORABLE UPPER-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT, WITH POLEWARD OUTFLOW CONTINUING.
AFTERWARDS, THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO ENCOUNTER INCREASED VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR AS IT APPROACHES AND PASSES THE RIDGE AXIS, CAUSING THE
SYSTEM TO WEAKEN THROUGHOUT THE REMAINDER OF THE PERIOD. AT THE END
OF THE FORECAST PERIOD INTERACTION WITH LAND WILL FURTHER WEAKEN TC
26S. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS REMAIN IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THIS
SCENARIO WITH THE POINT OF RECURVATURE CONTINUING TO DIFFER IN THE
VARIOUS MODELS. NGPS AFWA MM5 RECURVE SLIGHTLY EARLIER, MAKING FOR
LANDFALL NEAR PORT HEDLAND, AUSTRALIA. NCEP AVIATION (AVN), UKMET
GLOBAL (EGRR) AND THE AUSTRALIAN TYPHOON MODEL (TCLAPS) RECURVE
LATER, MAKING FOR LANDFALL JUST EAST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA. THIS
FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF PERSISTENCE AND A CONSENSUS OF THE
DYNAMIC MODELS WITH LESS EMPHASIS ON NGPS AND AFWA MM5. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 050000Z5 IS 28 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
050900Z4, 051500Z1, 052100Z8 AND 060300Z9.

KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
050530Z3 MULTI-SPECTRAL AND ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE
WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES
OF 130 KNOTS. THE SYSTEM HAS MAINTAINED A 18NM (APPROX.) SYMMETRICAL
EYE. TC 26S IS FORECAST TO SLOWLY RECURVE IN THE NEXT 24 TO 26 HOURS
INTO A WEAKNESS CREATED BY A PASSING MID-LAT TROUGH. THE FORECAST
CONTINUES TO CALL FOR LANDFALL OVER NORTHWESTERN AUSTRALIA IN ABOUT
60 HOURS. TC 26S IS FORECAST TO ENCOUNTER INCREASING VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR AND ENTRAIN DRYER AIR AS IT TRACKS POLEWARD CAUSING THE
SYSTEM TO WEAKEN LATE IN THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC
AIDS REMAIN IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. TWO CLUSTERS OF
MODELS DIFFER IN THE DEGREE OF WESTERLY INFLUENCE IN THE STORM
TRACK. NGPS AND AFWA MM5 CALL FOR A STRONGER WESTERLY INFLUENCE AND
TRACK TC 26S TOWARD PORT HEDLAND, AUSTRALIA. NCEP AVIATION (AVN),
UKMET GLOBAL (EGRR) AND THE AUSTRALIAN TC MODEL (TCLAPS) BRING TC
26S CLOSER TO LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA. BASED ON CURRENT ANALYSIS, OUR
FORECAST CONTINUES TO FAVOR THE SECOND MODEL CLUSTER WITH EGRR, AVN,

REMARKS:
070900Z6 POSITION NEAR 17.9S7 114.2E8.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 26S (INIGO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 260 NM
NORTH OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 07
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
070530Z5 MULTI-SPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS
BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 65 AND 77 KNOTS.
VISIBLE IMAGERY REVEALS THE DEEP CONVECTION IS SHEARED EAST OF THE
LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. TC 26S SHOULD CONTINUE TRACKING
SOUTHEASTWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF MID-LATITUDE WESTERLIES AND
MAKE LANDFALL WEST OF PORT HEDLAND, AUSTRALIA. THE CYCLONE IS
EXPECTED TO CONTINUE WEAKENING UNDER UNFAVORABLE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
AND SHOULD DISSIPATE IN 24 TO 36 HOURS AS IT TRACKS OVER LAND. THE
AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH OUR FORECAST
TRACK. OUR FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF PERSISTENCE AND A
CONSENSUS OF ALL AVAILABLE MODELS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT
AT 070600Z3 IS 18 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 071500Z3, 072100Z0,
