1. IMMEDIATE DELIVERY REQ TO AMEMBASSY PORT LOUIS
2. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
150 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 10.8S9 64.9E9 TO 14.1S6 61.3E0
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 042130Z0 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 11.2S4 64.6E6. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT
06 KNOTS.
3. REMARKS:
THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 10.8S9 64.9E9 IS
NOW LOCATED NEAR 11.4S6 63.8E7, APPROXIMATELY 580 NM WEST-
SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED AND RECENT
MICROWAVE SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEAL THAT THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC) CONTINUES TO BECOME BETTER ORGANIZED. THE DEEP
CONVECTION HAS INCREASED OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS, IS NO LONGER
CYCLIC AND IS MORE ORGANIZED, WITH IMPROVING OUTFLOW IN THE
POLEWARD DIRECTION. 200 MB ANALYSIS INDICATES MODERATE TO GOOD
DIFFLUENCE ALOFT AND WEAK VERTICAL WIND SHEAR OVER THE REGION.
MAXIMUM SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM
SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1006 MB. BASED ON
CONTINUED IMPROVEMENT IN ORGANIZATION, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE
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 052300Z0.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 03S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 690 NM
WEST-SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD
AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED
ON 051730Z6 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING
INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF
30 KNOTS. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR AND ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY REVEALS THAT THE APPROACH OF A MAJOR SHORTWAVE FROM THE
SOUTHWEST IS BEGINNING TO ENHANCE THE P0LEWARD OUTFLOW ALLOWING
TC 03S TO INTENSIFY TO NEAR TROPICAL STORM STRENGTH. TC 03S IS
EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO TRACK SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG THE LOW TO MID
LEVEL STEERING RIDGE ANCHORED TO THE SOUTHEAST AND THEN TRANSITION
TO A MORE WESTERLY TRACK LATE IN THE FORECAST PERIOD AS THE SHORTWAVE
IS REPLACED BY A TRANSITORY HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE. SLOW BUT STEADY
INTENSIFICATION IS EXPECTED THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD DUE TO
THE ENHANCED POLEWARD OUTFLOW EARLY AND THE EXPECTATION THAT TC 03S
WILL REMAIN IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT OF DIFFLUENCE ALOFT AND WEAK
VERTICAL SHEAR. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING OF UKMET
(EGRR), NCEP GFS, AND WBAI ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO;
THE NOGAPS MODEL WAS NOT AVAILABLE FOR THIS CONSENSUS. THIS FORECAST
IS BASED ON PERSISTENCE AND A BLEND OF THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 051800Z4 IS 8 FEET. THIS WARNING

AT 11 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
101730Z2 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY
IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 25 AND 30 KNOTS.
RECENT ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS DEEP CONVECTION
BEGINNING TO REGENERATE OVER THE OLD LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER OF
TC 03S. THE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT REMAINS FAVORABLE WITH GOOD
DIFFLUENCE AND WEAK VERTICAL SHEAR. TC 03S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
TRACKING POLEWARD ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A LOW LEVEL STEERING
RIDGE TO THE EAST. AN ALTERNATE SCENARIO IS FOR TC 03S TO LINK UP WITH
THE MAJOR SHORTWAVE TO THE SOUTH-SOUTHWEST, MAKE LANDFALL IN WESTERN
MADAGASCAR AND CEASE TO EXIST AS A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE. THE
LIMITED AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS CONSISTING OF NOGAPS AND NCEP GFS ARE
IN POOR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. NEITHER MODEL FORECASTS THE
SYSTEM TO REMAIN AT WARNING LEVEL STRENGTH. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON
PERSISTENCE AND A BLEND OF THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC MODELS. MAXIMUM

POLEWARD ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A LOW LEVEL STEERING
RIDGE TO THE EAST. A TROUGH APPROACHING FROM THE WEST IS EXPECTED
TO WEAKEN THE POLEWARD DIFFLUENCE AND CONTRIBUTE TO WEAKENING
THE INTENSITY OF THE SYSTEM. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING
OF NOGAPS, EGRR, NCEP GFS, GFDN AND WBAR ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT
DURING THE INITIAL 24 HOURS AND THEN TRACKS DIVERGE RAPIDLY DUE
TO THE WEAK INTENSITY OF THE SYSTEM FORECAST BY AVAILABLE AIDS.

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 03S (CELA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 150 NM
WEST OF MOZAMBIQUE, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
151730Z7 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A 151711Z6 MICROWAVE
PASS. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 35 AND 45 KNOTS. THE MICROWAVE PASS INDICATES A MID-LEVEL
EYE FEATURE, WITH A BANDING FEATURE WRAPPING AROUND THE SOUTH. ANIMATED
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY REVEALS THAT A TRANSIENT SHORT WAVE TROUGH IS ABOUT
TO MOVE OUT AND A RIDGE IS BUILDING TO THE SOUTH BEHIND IT. TC 03S
IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN QUASI-STATIONARY OVER THE NEXT FEW HOURS AS IT
TRACKS IN THE WEAKNESS BETWEEN THE TROUGH AND RIDGE. THE RIDGE IS EXPECTED
TO BUILD SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM AND WILL REMAIN THE DOMINANT STEERING FLOW. AS
A RESULT, A WESTWARD TRACK IS EXPECTED THROUGH 48 HOURS. POLEWARD OUTFLOW IS
BEING ENHANCED BY THE SHORTWAVE TROUGH, BUT SHOULD BEGIN TO WEAKEN IN THE NEXT
12 TO 24 HOURS AS THAT TROUGH MOVES THROUGH AND THE RIDGE BUILDS IN. THEREFORE,
SLIGHT INTENSIFICATION IS EXPECTED EARLY IN THE PERIOD, AND THEN THE SYSTEM
SHOULD SLIGHTLY WEAKEN. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, EGRR,
NCEP GFS, GFDN AND WBAR ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. EGRR AND NGPS
KEEP THE RIDGE TO THE SOUTH STRONG AND TRACK THE SYSTEM DUE WEST, WHILE GFS AND
GFDN WEAKEN THE RIDGE LATE IN THE PERIOD, RESULTING IN A MORE POLEWARD
TRACK. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON PERSISTENCE AND A BLEND OF THE AVAILABLE
DYNAMIC MODELS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 151800Z5 IS 10 FEET.

REMARKS:
160900Z6 POSITION NEAR 20.6S8 41.6E1.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 03S (CELA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 310 NM WEST-
SOUTHWEST OF ANTANANARIVO, MADAGASCAR, HAS BEEN ALMOST QUASISTATIONARY
OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS WITH A SLIGHT DRIFT TO THE EAST AT 2 KNOTS. THE
WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 160530Z5 MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY.
THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES
OF 55 AND 65 KNOTS. A RECENT 060239Z0 SSMI IN THE 37 GHZ FREQUENCY
REVEALS THAT TC 03S HAS INTENSIFIED RAPIDLY TO TYPHOON STRENGTH WITH
THE EMERGENCE OF AN 18 NM IRREGULAR EYE. ENHANCED INFRARED WATER VAPOR
SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THAT POLEWARD OUTFLOW HAS BEEN ENHANCED BY A
PASSING MAJOR SHORTWAVE TROUGH SOUTH OF TC 03S. THIS TRANSIENT SHORTWAVE
WILL SOON BE REPLACED BY ADVANCING HIGH PRESSURE TRANSITIONING THE
DOMINANT STEERING FLOW FROM A POLEWARD PATTERN TO A MORE WESTWARD
PATTERN. THE ENHANCED POLEWARD OUTFLOW WILL SOON SUBSIDE ALLOWING FOR A
GRADUAL DECREASE IN INTENSITY OF TC 03S THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD.
THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, EGGR, WBAR AND NCEP GFS
ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO WITH WBAR BEING THE SIGNIFICANT
OUTLIER. WBAR FORECASTS TC 03S TO REMAIN IN A STRICT POLEWARD PATTERN
WHICH DIFFERS FROM THE OTHER MODELS. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON PERSISTENCE
AND A BLEND OF THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC MODELS WITH LESS EMPHASIS ON WBAR.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 160600Z3 IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT

REMARKS:
170900Z7 POSITION NEAR 21.7S0 40.7E1.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 03S (CELA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 370 NM
WEST-SOUTHWEST OF ANTANANARIVO, MADAGASCAR, HAS TRACKED WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 4 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING
POSITION IS BASED ON 170530Z6 MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY.
THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 55 AND 65 KNOTS. RECENT ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A 170332Z6 AMSU PASS REVEALS THAT THE LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER OF TC 03S HAS BECOME FULLY EXPOSED WITH
DISORGANIZED DEEP CONVECTION OCCURRING ONLY IN THE SOUTHERN
QUADRANTS. TC 03S IS INITIALLY EXPECTED TO TRACK SOUTHWESTWARD
ALONG THE NORTHERN EDGE OF A TRANSIENT HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM
LOCATED TO THE SOUTH. TC 03S WILL THEN TRANSITION TO A MORE
POLEWARD TRACK MIDWAY THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD AS THE HIGH
PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVES EASTWARD AND THE CYCLONE MOVES TOWARDS THE
WEAKNESS BEHIND. TC 03S HAS CURRENTLY LOST MUCH OF ITS POLEWARD
OUTFLOW SO IT SHOULD CONTINUE TO DECREASE IN INTENSITY. A MAJOR
SHORTWAVE IN THE UPPER LEVELS WILL APPROACH FROM THE SOUTHWEST
LATE IN THE FORECAST PERIOD, ENHANCING THE POLEWARD OUTFLOW,
ALLOWING TC 03S TO BEGIN TO REINTENSIFY. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC
AIDS CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, EGRR, WBAR AND NCEP GFS ARE IN GOOD

SOUTHWEST OF ANTANANARIVO, MADAGASCAR, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD
AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED
ON 172330Z6 MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE  WARNING INTENSITY
IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY  ESTIMATES OF 45, 55, AND
77 KNOTS. TC 03S IS EXPECTED TO TRACK SOUTHWESTWARD AROUND A WEAK
LOW TO MID-LEVEL RIDGE LOCATED TO THE EAST. BY TAU 12, THE LOW TO
MID-LEVEL RIDGE WILL BUILD TO THE NORTHEAST OF TC 03S PROVIDING A
STRONGER STEERING FLOW. AFTER TAU 12, TC 03S WILL TRACK ALONG THE
SOUTHWEST PERIPHERY OF THE STEERING RIDGE GIVING TC 03S A SOUTHEAST
TRACK. BY TAU 48, TC 03S WILL PICK UP SPEED AND START TO INTERACT WITH
THE BARACLINIC ZONE. TC 03S IS EXPECTED TO MAINTAIN ITS INTENSITY THROUGH
THE FIRST SIX TO  TWELVE HOURS. BY TAU 12, TC 03S WILL SLIGHTLY DECREASE
AS IT PASSES THE RIDGE AXIS AND ENCOUNTERS A DECREASE IN OUTFLOW ALOFT.
BY TAU 36, INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND A FURTHER DECREASE IN OUTFLOW
ALOFT WILL WEAKEN THE SYSTEM. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS CONSISTING OF NOGAPS,
GFDN, EGRR, AND GFS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. EGRR AND GFS
DIFFER SLIGHTLY AFTER TAU 24. THOSE TWO MODELS HAVE A FASTER TRACK TOWARD THE
SOUTHEAST DUE TO A STRONGER RIDGE TO THE EAST. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON
