1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
145 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 11.2S4 130.7E1 TO 11.8S0
126.3E2 WITHIN THE NEXT 06 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 151730Z7 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS
LOCATED NEAR 11.3S5 130.3E7. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD
AT 09 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 11.0S2
131.2E7 IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 11.3S5 130.3E7, APPROXIMATELY 90 NM
NORTH-NORTHWEST OF DARWIN, AUSTRALIA. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES SUSTAINED CYCLING DEEP CONVECTION OVER
AN IMPROVED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) AT THE SURFACE.
RECENT MICROWAVE IMAGERY SHOWS INCREASED DEEP CONVECTION AND IMPROVED
ORGANIZATION. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES DECREASING VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR IN THE REGION WITH MODERATE DIFFLUENCE ALOFT. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED
SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL
PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE 1000 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT
OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS UPGRADED
TO GOOD.

REMARKS:
180900Z8 POSITION NEAR 13.3S7 126.3E2.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S, IS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 635 NM
NORTHEAST OF PORT HEDLAND, AUSTRALIA AND HAS BEEN MOSTLY
QUASISTATIONARY OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION
IS BASED ON 172330Z6 MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING
INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 55
AND 65 KNOTS AND ANIMATED RADAR IMAGERY. RECENT ANIMATED RADAR
IMAGERY FROM WYNDHAM, AUSTRALIA SHOWS A DEFINITE CIRCULATION JUST
OFF THE COAST OF CAPE TALBOT. AN 180700Z6 SYNOPTIC OBSERVATION AT
TROUGHTON ISLAND REPORTED SUSTAINED WINDS AT 27 KNOTS AND A MEAN
SEA LEVEL PRESSURE AT 994.1 MB. TC 18S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
TRACKING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A
MID LEVEL STEERING RIDGE ANCHORED SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM. TC 18S IS
EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT ALOFT
BUT AT SLIGHTLY LESS THAN A CLIMOTOLOGICAL RATE DUE TO INFLOW OF
HOT, DRY AIR FROM THE SOUTH. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING
OF NOGAPS, GFDN, NCEP GFS, TLAPS, TCLAPS AND EGRR ARE IN FAIR
AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON A CONSENSUS
OF ALL THE AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 180600Z IS 15
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 182100Z2 AND 190900Z9.//

REMARKS:
200900Z1 POSITION NEAR 13.3S7 124.1E8.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (FAY), IS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY
520 NM NORTHEAST OF PORT HEDLAND, AUSTRALIA AND HAS TRACKED
WESTWARD AT 05 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION
IS BASED ON 200530Z0 ENHANCED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE
WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 77 AND 90 KNOTS. TC 18S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
TRACKING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF A
MID LEVEL STEERING RIDGE SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM. TC 18S IS EXPECTED
TO CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY AT A NEAR CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE FOR THE
FORECAST PERIOD IN A FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT OF MODERATE
UPPER LEVEL OUTFLOW AND WEAK VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. THE AVAILABLE
DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, NCEP GFS, TLAPS, TCLAPS AND
EGRR ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. THIS FORECAST IS
BASED ON A CONSENSUS OF ALL AVAILABLE AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 200600Z8 IS 23 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 202100Z5 AND

REMARKS:
212100Z6 POSITION NEAR 14.2S7 121.2E6.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (FAY), IS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY
410 NM NORTH-NORTHEAST OF PORT HEDLAND, AUSTRALIA AND HAS
TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 07 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS.
THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 211730Z4 ENHANCED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 115 AND 127 KNOTS.
TC 18S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD
THROUGH 24 HOURS ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A MID
LEVEL STEERING RIDGE SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM. A PASSING SHORTWAVE
TROUGH IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN THE RIDGE AND SHIFT THE TRACK
POLEWARD FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. TC 18S IS
EXPECTED TO CONTINUE INTENSIFYING AT A LESS THAN CLIMATOLOGICAL
RATE THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD IN A MODERATELY FAVORABLE UPPER
LEVEL ENVIRONMENT. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING OF
NOGAPS, NCEP GFS, TLAPS, TCLAPS, AFWA MM5 AND EGRR ARE IN FAIR
AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. EGRR AND GFS ARE LOOKING FOR A
SHARPER POLEWARD TURN AND RECURVATURE INTO NORTH WESTERN
AUSTRALIA. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF THE AVAILABLE
AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 211800Z2 IS 24 FEET.

NORTH-NORTHEAST OF PORT HEDLAND, AUSTRALIA AND HAS TRACKED WESTWARD 
AT 05 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED 
ON 221730Z5 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS 
BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 100 AND 115 
KNOTS. TC 18S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG 
THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A MID-LEVEL STEERING RIDGE SOUTH OF 
THE SYSTEM. A PASSING LONGWAVE TROUGH IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN THE 
RIDGE AND SHIFT THE TRACK MORE POLEWARD FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE 
FORECAST PERIOD. TC 18S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE INTENSIFYING AT A 
LESS THAN CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE PEAKING IN INTENSITY IN 48 HRS IN A 
MODERATELY FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC 
AIDS, CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, NCEP GFS, TCLAPS, WBAI, AVN AND EGRR 
ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. EGRR, AFWA AND TCLAPS 
ARE WESTERN OUTLIERS KEEPING TC 18S IN A MORE WESTWARD TRACK DUE TO 
LESS INTERACTION WITH THE APPROACHING LONGWAVE. THE AVN MODEL IS AN
EASTERN OUTLIER PREDICTING A SHARPER RECURVATURE SCENARIO THAN THE

ON 230530Z3 VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS
BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 100 AND 115
KNOTS. RECENT MICROWAVE IMAGERY INDICATES A WEAK EYE FEATURE WITH
DECREASED BANDING IN THE PAST 24 HOURS. TC 18S IS FORECAST TO
REMAIN QUASI-STATIONARY OVER THE NEXT 12 HOURS AS IT REMAINS IN
A WEAKNESS BETWEEN THE NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTH AND THE
MID-LEVEL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH-SOUTHWEST. THE WEAKNESS HAS BEEN
CREATED BY THE MID-LEVEL TROUGH EXTENDING NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST
OVER CENTRAL AUSTRALIA. TC 18S SHOULD BEGIN TO TRACK MORE
POLEWARD IN 12 TO 24 HOURS AS THAT TROUGH FILLS. ADDITIONALY, THE
LONGWAVE TROUGH CURRENTLY OVER THE SOUTHEASTERN INDIAN OCEAN IS
EXPECTED TO WEAKEN THE RIDGE TO THE SOUTH AS THE NEAR-EQUATORIAL
RIDGE BUILDS TO THE EAST. TC 18S IS EXPECTED TO MAINTAIN
INTENSITY UNDER A MARGINAL UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT THROUGH THE
NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS. THEREAFTER, POLEWARD OUTFLOW IS EXPECTED TO
IMPROVE AND TC 18S IS EXPECTED TO REINTENSIFY. THE AVAILABLE
DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, GFDN, NCEP GFS, TCLAPS, WBAI,
AFWA MM5, AND EGRR ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO.
THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON PERSISTENCE AND A BLEND OF THE
AVAILABLE AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 230600Z1 IS
30 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 232100Z8 AND 240900Z5.//

REMARKS:
242100Z9 POSITION NEAR 16.8S5 121.5E9.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (FAY), IS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 280 NM
NORTHEAST OF PORT HEDLAND, AUSTRALIA, AND HAS TRACKED SOUTH-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 3 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING
POSITION IS BASED ON 241730Z7 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY AND
241430Z4 MICROWAVE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 65 AND 75 KNOTS. THE
MICROWAVE IMAGE DEPICTS A POSSIBLE BANDING EYE FEATURE BEGINNING
TO DEVELOP. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY REVEALS A POLEWARD
OUTFLOW CHANNEL EXTENDING TO THE SOUTHEAST, WHICH HAS MAINTAINED
SYSTEM INTENSITY BY COUNTERACTING THE DEGRADING CONTINENTAL DRY
AIR ENTRAINMENT. THIS BALANCE OF OPPOSING FORCES WILL MAINTAIN
INTENSITY FOR 36 HOURS, THEN LANDFALL WILL DRAMATICALLY DECREASE
INTENSITY. TC 18S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO TRACK POLEWARD INTO
A WEAKNESS IN THE RIDGE TO THE SOUTH AND EAST OF THE SYSTEM. THE
AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, GFDN, NCEP GFS,
TCLAPS, WBAI, AFWA MM5, AND EGRR ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS
SCENARIO. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON PERSISTENCE AND A BLEND OF THE
AVAILABLE AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 241800Z5 IS 28
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 250900Z6 AND 252100Z0. REFER TO TROPICAL

REMARKS:
262100Z1 POSITION NEAR 19.5S5 120.0E3.
THE WARNING HAS BEEN AMENDED BASED ON A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN
FORECAST TRACK AND SPEED FROM THE PREVIOUS WARNING. TROPICAL
CYCLONE (TC) 18S (FAY) IS NOW EXPECTED TO MAKE LANDFALL MUCH
SOONER AND FURTHER EAST THAN THE PREVIOUS FORECAST. TC 18S
IS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 100 NM NORTHEAST OF PORT HEDLAND,
AUSTRALIA, AND HAS TRACKED DUE SOUTH AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST
06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 261730Z9 INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY AND 261720Z8 BROOME RADAR IMAGERY. THE
WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 115 KNOTS. TC 18S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO
TRACK DUE SOUTH BY A MID LEVEL STEERING RIDGE TO THE EAST OF
THE SYSTEM. A 261756Z7 MICROWAVE IMAGERY DEPICTS A 15 NM
DIAMETER EYE. TC 18S IS FORECAST TO MAKE LANDFALL EAST OF THE
COMMUNITY OF PARDOO AT APPROXIMATELY 270200Z1 AND WILL
SLOWLY WEAKEN IN INTENSITY FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST
PERIOD. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, GFDN,
NCEP GFS, TCLAPS, AFWA MM5, AND EGRR ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH
THIS SCENARIO. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON PERSISTENCE AND A BLEND
OF THE AVAILABLE AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
261800Z7 IS 18 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 270900Z8 AND 272100Z2.
