MSGID/GENADMIN/NAVPACMETOCCEN PEARL HARBOR HI/JTWC//
SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT 071451ZAPR2004//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE
WITHIN 155 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 14.7S2 173.6E7 TO
17.5S3 178.7E3 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 30 TO 35
KNOTS. MET SAT IMAGERY AT 071130Z2 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION
CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 14.9S4 174.1E3. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING
EAST-SOUTH EASTWARD AT 10 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS:
THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY NEAR 14.6S1 173.5E6, IS NOW
LOCATED NEAR 14.9S4 174.1E3, APPROXIMATELY 320 NM NORTHWEST OF
SUVA, FIJI. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS
DEEP CYCLING CONVECTION INCREASING OVER A WELL DEFINED LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) EMBEDDED IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC CONVERGENCE
ZONE. A RECENT 070818Z4 QUIKSCAT REVEALS AN ORGANIZED CIRCULATION
WITH 30 KNOT WINDS. A RECENT 071001Z9 MICROWAVE PASS REVEALS
CONVECTION OVER THE LLCC WITH SPIRAL BANDS BEGINNING TO FORM. UPPER
LEVEL ANALYSES DEPICT A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT OF WEAK TO MODERATE
VERTICAL SHEAR WITH SOME OUTFLOW IN THE POLEWARD DIRECTION. MAXIMUM
SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 30 TO 35 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA
LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1000 MB. DUE TO IMPROVED
ORGANIZATION, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT
TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS UPGRADED TO GOOD.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED
BY 081500Z4.//

REMARKS:
072100Z0 POSITION NEAR 16.4S1  176.5E9.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 22P, IS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 180 NM
NORTHWEST OF SUVA, FIJI IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC OCEAN AND HAS BEEN
MOVING SOUTHEAST AT 12 KNOTS OVER OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING
POSITION IS BASED ON 071730Z8 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE
WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES
OF 30 KNOTS AND QUIKSCAT WINDS DEPICTING 35 TO 40 KNOTS NEAR THE LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. TC 22P IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO TRACK
SOUTHEAST IN A STRONG STEERING ENVIRONMENT. TC 22P IS EXPECTED TO
INTENSIFY BRIEFLY BEFORE IT GETS ABSORBED BY STRONG NORTHWESTERLY FLOW.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 071800Z IS 09 FEET. DYNAMIC AIDS WERE
IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND
CANCELS REF A, NAVPACMETOCCEN 071451Z APR 04 TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION
