SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT 042121ZMAR03//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 125 NM RADIUS OF 11.5S7 78.4E9 WITHIN THE NEXT 06 TO 24 HOURS.
AVAILABLE DATA DOES NOT JUSTIFY ISSUANCE OF A NUMBERED TROPICAL
CYCLONE WARNING AT THIS TIME. WINDS IN THE AREA ARE ESTIMATED TO BE
25 TO 35 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY AT 041730Z5 INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 11.5S7 78.4E9. THE SYSTEM IS
QUASI-STATIONARY.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 11.6S8
78.5E0, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 11.5S7 78.7E2, APPROXIMATELY 445 NM
SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A
041307Z5 SPECIAL SENSOR MICROWAVE IMAGER (SSM/I) PASS INDICATES DEEP
CONVECTION OVER A LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) HAS INCREASED
IN ORGANIZATION OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. DEEP CONVECTION IS LOCATED
PRIMARILY WEST THROUGH SOUTHWEST OF THE LLCC. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES WEAK TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND FAVORABLE
DIVERGENCE ALOFT OVER THE AREA. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE
ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 35 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED
TO BE NEAR 1006 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A
SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS UPGRADED TO
GOOD.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
052130Z1.

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 390 NM SOUTHEAST OF
DIEGO GARCIA HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 050530Z3
MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 25 AND 45 KNOTS. ANIMATED
VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A RECENT SPECIAL SENSOR MICROWAVE
IMAGER (SSM/I) PASS REVEAL THAT THE DEEP CONVECTION OVER THE LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) HAS INCREASED IN ORGANIZATION OVER
THE PAST 6 HOURS. TC 23S IS EXPECTED TO TRACK WESTWARD UNDER THE
INFLUENCE OF THE MID LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE THROUGH 36 HOURS BEFORE
TURNING POLEWARD TOWARDS A WEAKNESS IN THE RIDGE THROUGH THE
REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. TC 23S IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY AT
A CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE UNDER THE FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT
EQUATORWARD OF THE RIDGE AXIS. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS,
CONSISTING OF NOGAPS AND THE UKMET OFFICE (EGRR) ARE IN DISAGREEMENT
WITH THIS SCENARIO. OUR FORECAST IS BASED ON UKMET, THE BETA EFFECT

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23S (KALUNDE), LOCATED IN THE SOUTH INDIAN
OCEAN, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 05 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6
HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 091130Z4 VISIBLE SATELLITE
IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 115 AND 125 KNOTS. A RECENT MICROWAVE PASS
REVEALS THAT CONVECTION IS STARTING TO ERODE ON THE NORTHWESTERN
QUADRANT OF THE EYEWALL. TC 23S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE ON A
SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK THROUGH 24 HOURS, THEN MORE POLEWARD, AROUND THE
MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AS IT PROPAGATES EASTWARD. TC 23S WILL
WEAKEN SLOWLY THROUGH 24 HOURS AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS OVER RELATIVELY
COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND WILL WEAKEN MORE RAPIDLY AS IT
APPROACHES THE RIDGE AXIS AND ENCOUNTERS INCREASED VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, GFDN, NCEP
AVIATION (AVN), AFWA MM5, AND THE UKMET OFFICE (EGRR) MODELS ARE IN
GOOD AGREEMENT. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON PERSISTENCE AND A BLEND OF
THE AVAILABLE AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 091200Z2 IS

REMARKS:
111500Z8 POSITION NEAR 18.5S4 64.8E8.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23S (KALUNDE), LOCATED IN THE SOUTH INDIAN
OCEAN, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 04 KNOTS DURING THE PAST 6
HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 111130Z7 VISIBLE SATELLITE
IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 102 KNOTS. ANIMATED VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY
SUGGESTS THAT THE SYSTEM HAS BECOME COMPLETELY SYMMETRICAL. TC 23S
IS FORECAST TO TRACK SLOWLY POLEWARD THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. TC
23S WILL WEAKEN SLOWLY AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS INCREASINGLY POLEWARD OF
THE RIDGE AXIS. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING OF NOGAPS,
GFDN, AND AFWA MM5, NCEP AVIATION (AVN) AND UKMET OFFICE (EGRR) ARE
IN FAIR AGREEMENT. THE EGRR MODEL HAS THE SYSTEM AT A WEAKER
INTENSITY AND RESULTS IN A STEERING LEVEL THAT PROPAGATES THE SYSTEM
MORE WESTWARD THAN THE OTHER DYNAMIC AIDS. OUR FORECAST IS BASED ON
A PERSISTENCE AND A BLEND OF ALL THE AVAILABLE MODELS. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 111200Z5 IS 20 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
120300Z6 AND 121500Z9. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 24S (CRAIG)

REMARKS:
140300Z8 POSITION NEAR 23.2S7 65.4E5.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23S (KALUNDE), LOCATED IN THE SOUTH INDIAN
OCEAN, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6
HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 132330Z2 ENHANCED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 65 AND 75 KNOTS. TC 23S IS FORECAST
TO CONTINUE ON A POLEWARD TRACK THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD, BELOW
THE AXIS OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE LOCATED NORTHEAST OF THE SYSTEM.
TC 23S WILL CONTINUE TO WEAKEN GRADUALLY, AS THE SYSTEM MAINTAINS A
POLEWARD TRACK INTO AN ENVIRONMENT OF INCREASING VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR. TC 23S WILL ULTIMATELY DISSIPATE AS A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL
CYCLONE OVER WATER. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING OF
NOGAPS, GFDN, NCEP AVIATION (AVN), AND UKMET OFFICE (EGRR) ARE IN
AGREEMENT. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON A CONSENSUS OF THE AVAILABLE
DYNAMIC AIDS AND PERSISTENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
140000Z5 IS 26 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 141500Z1 AND 150300Z9.

REMARKS:
150300Z9 POSITION NEAR 26.4S2 65.6E7.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23S (KALUNDE), LOCATED IN THE SOUTH INDIAN
OCEAN, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 05 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6
HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 142330Z3 ENHANCED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 45 AND 55 KNOTS. RECENT MICROWAVE AND
ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SUGGEST THE SYSTEM IS TRANSITIONING
INTO AN EXTRATROPICAL SYSTEM, WITH THE DEEP CONVECTION BEING
SHEARED TO THE SOUTHEAST. TC 23S IS FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD
THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. TC 23S WILL CONTINUE TO WEAKEN AS THE
SYSTEM ENCOUNTERS INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. TC 23S IS EXPECTED
TO COMPLETE EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION WITHIN THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS.
THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, GFDN, NCEP
AVIATION (AVN), AND UKMET OFFICE (EGRR) ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT. THIS
FORECAST IS BASED ON A CONSENSUS OF THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS AND

REMARKS:
151500Z2 POSITION NEAR 29.3S4 66.3E5.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23S (KALUNDE), LOCATED IN THE SOUTH INDIAN
OCEAN, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 13 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE
WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 151130Z1 VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE
WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES
OF 25 KNOTS. RECENT ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY SUGGESTS THAT THE
INTENSITY IS SLIGHTLY HIGHER THAN DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES GIVE
DUE TO THE FULLY EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. THE IMAGERY
ALSO SUGGESTS THE SYSTEM IS DISSIPATING WHILE TRANSITIONING INTO AN
EXTRATROPICAL SYSTEM, WITH THE REMAINING DEEP CONVECTION CONFINED TO
THE SOUTHEAST QUADRANT. TC 23S IS FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTHWARD AND BE
EXTRATROPICAL IN 12 HOURS. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING OF
NOGAPS, GFDN, NCEP AVIATION (AVN), AND UKMET OFFICE (EGRR) ARE IN
GOOD AGREEMENT. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON A CONSENSUS OF THE
AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS AND PERSISTENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 151200Z9 IS 15 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. RELEASED
BY CAPT LEEJOICE, USAF.//
