MSGID/GENADMIN/NAVPACMETOCCEN PEARL HARBOR HI/JTWC//
SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT 082200ZNOV2003//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
100 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 4.6S0 79.5E1 TO 7.8S5 76.6E9
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 IM
AGERY AT 111730Z3 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 5.0S5 79.1E7. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WESTWARD AT 04 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS:
THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR
5.0S5 79.3E9 IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 5.0S5 79.1E7, APPROXIMATELY
425 NM EAST-NORTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA. ANIMATED ENHANCED
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THAT THE DEEP CONVECTION
HAS INCREASED AND THE SYSTEM IS CONSOLIDATING INTO A POSSIBLE
CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST OVER THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER.
THE 200 MB ANALYSIS DEPICTS WEAK VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND A POINT
SOURCE OVER THE REGION SUPPORTING THE OBSERVED RADIAL OUTFLOW.
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS.
MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1003 MB. DUE
TO IMPROVED ORGANIZATION, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF
A TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS UPGRADED TO GOOD.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED
BY 092152Z9.//

122100Z6 POSITION NEAR 10.2S3 74.6E7.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 02S (BENI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 175 NM SOUTHEAST OF
DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06
HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 121730Z4 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES
OF 65 AND 77 KNOTS. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR AND ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
DEPICTS INCREASED CONVECTION AND CONTINUED INTENSIFICATION ALLOWING TC 02S TO
REACH TYPHOON STRENGTH. THE STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW OF TC 02S HAS BEEN ENHANCED
BY A MAJOR TRANSITORY SHORTWAVE TROUGH PASSING TO THE SOUTH OF TC 02S. TC 02S
CONTINUES TO TRACK SOUTHWARD ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE MID LEVEL
STEERING RIDGE TO THE EAST. LATE IN THE FORECAST PERIOD, THE STEERING FLOW WILL
TRANSITION TO A STEERING RIDGE TO THE SOUTH ALLOWING TC 02S TO TRACK WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHERN EDGE OF THIS RIDGE. THERE HAS BEEN A CHANGE
IN REASONING FOR THE INTENSIFICATION OF TC 02S. THE TRANSITORY SHORTWAVE SOUTH
OF TC 02S, ACTING AS AN ENHANCED POLEWARD OUTFLOW MECHANISM FOR TC 02S, SHOULD
MOVE EASTWARD TO BE FOLLOWED BY HIGHER PRESSURE BUILDING IN. THIS SHOULD SEE
THE INTENSIFICATION RATE DECREASE SOON. HOWEVER, TC 02S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
TO INTENSIFY SLOWLY AT A LESS THAN CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE FOR THE ENTIRE FORECAST
PERIOD AS HIGH PRESSURE MOVES IN FROM THE SOUTHWEST. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS,
CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, GFDN, UKMET EGRR, AND NCEP GFS ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH
THIS SCENARIO. EGGR AND THE GFS EXPECT A STRONGER STEERING RIDGE TO THE SOUTH
RESULTING IN A MORE WESTWARD TRACK SOONER; NOGAPS AND GFDN RESOLVE A WEAKER
RIDGE AND ULTIMATELY A MORE POLEWARD TRACK. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND
OF THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 121800Z2 IS
22 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 130900Z3 AND 132100Z7.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 02S (BENI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 250 NM SOUTHEAST OF
DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06
HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 130530Z2 MULTISPECTRAL AND ENHANCED
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 77 AND 90 KNOTS. A 1310418Z8 SSM/I PASS AND
ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICT A 15 NM EYE AND THE
SYSTEM BECOMING MORE SYMMETRIC. TC 02S IS EXPECTED TO TRACK SOUTHWARD ALONG
THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE MID-LEVEL STEERING RIDGE TO THE EAST OVER THE
NEXT 36 HOURS. BY 48 HOURS, A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE SOUTHWEST OF THE SYSTEM IS
EXPECTED TO BUILD AND PROPAGATE EASTWARD, TURNING TC 02S ON A SOUTHWESTWARD
TRACK. TC 02S IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT OVER THE
NEXT 24 HOURS, THEN WEAKEN AS THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH BUILDS AND
CUTS OFF THE POLEWARD OUTFLOW. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING OF
NOGAPS, UKMET EGRR, AND NCEP GFS ARE IN POOR AGREEMENT. NCEP GFS BUILDS A
BUFFER TO THE NORTH AND TURNS THE SYSTEM EQUATORWARD AFTER 24 HOURS. NOGAPS
AND UKMET BUILD THE RIDGE TO THE SOUTH, BUT UKMET TURNS THE SYSTEM WESTWARD
EARLIER. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS,

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 02S (BENI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 300
NM SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 05
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
131730Z5 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING
INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF
102 KNOTS. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR AND ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY REVEALS THAT THE STRONG UPPER LEVEL FLOW FROM THE NORTHWEST
THAT GAVE TC 02S IT'S EXCELLENT POLEWARD OUTFLOW YESTERDAY IS NOW
CREATING AN UNFAVORABLE VERTICAL SHEAR ENVIRONMENT. A 131444Z7 SSM/I
PASS SHOWS THAT MUCH OF THE CONVECTION HAS DECREASED IN THE PAST 6
TO 12 HOURS WITH THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER NEARLY FULLY EXPOSED.
ANALYSIS OF THE 200 MB WIND FIELDS FROM THE UW CIMSS CHART SHOWS
THAT TC 02S IS SIGNIFICANTLY EMBEDDED IN A MODERATE TO HIGH SHEAR
ENVIRONMENT. FOR THESE REASONS, THE FORECAST FOR TC 02S HAS CHANGED
SIGNIFICANTLY FROM THE PREVIOUS FORECAST. TC 02S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
TO TRACK SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE MID-LEVEL
STEERING RIDGE TO THE EAST. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING IN FROM THE SOUTHWEST
WILL SLOWLY TRANSITION TC 02S TO A MORE SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK LATE IN THE
FORECAST PERIOD. TC 02S IS CURRENTLY BEING HELD AT A CURRENT SATELLITE
INTENSITY ESTIMATE OF 100 KNOTS, BUT IS FORECASTED TO RAPIDLY DECREASE
TO TROPICAL STORM STRENGTH ONLY AS THE LOW LEVEL WIND FLOW BEGINS TO
RAPIDLY DECLINE DUE TO THE LOSS OF CONVECTION. TC 02S MAY SEE SOME SLIGHT
REINTENSIFICATION LATE IN THE FORECAST PERIOD AS THE SHEAR PROPAGATES
EASTWARD. AN ALTERNATE SCENARIO IS FOR TC 02S TO DISSIPATE OVER THE
OPEN WATER AND CEASE TO EXIST AS A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE. TH
AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING OF UKMET (EGRR), NCEP GFS, GFDN, AND
NOGAPS ARE IN POOR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. BOTH EGGR AND NCEP GFS
DEPICT UNREALISTIC TRACKS DUE TO INTERACTION WITH A DEVELOPING SYSTEM TO
THE NORTH. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON PERSISTENCE AND A BLEND OF THE AVAILABLE
DYNAMIC AIDS WITH LESS EMPHASIS ON EGGR AND NCEP GFS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 131800Z3 IS 26 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 140900Z4 AND 142100Z8.

LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). TC 02S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE MID-LEVEL
STEERING RIDGE TO THE EAST THROUGH THE NEXT 12 HOURS. THEREAFTER, A
HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING IN FROM THE SOUTHWEST WILL SLOWLY TRANSITION
TC 02S TO A MORE SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK. TC 02S IS FORECAST TO SLOWLY
WEAKEN AS IT ENCOUNTERS INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR, DECREASED
OUTFLOW ALOFT, AND ENCOUNTERS DRY AIR ENTRAINMENT FROM THE WEST.
THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS CONSISTING OF UKMET (EGRR), NCEP GFS,
AND NOGAPS ARE IN POOR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. BOTH EGRR AND
NCEP GFS DEPICT UNREALISTIC TRACKS DUE TO INTERACTION WITH A
DEVELOPING SYSTEM TO THE NORTH. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON
PERSISTENCE AND A BLEND OF NOGAPS AND THE BETA ADVECTION MODELS.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 150600Z2 IS 20 FEET. NEXT
