271500Z5 POSITION NEAR 11.5S7 64.5E5.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY
520 NM WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED
SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 02 KNOTS DURING THE PAST SIX HOURS.
THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 271130Z4 MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 25 AND 35 KNOTS.
ENHANCED WATER VAPOR SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS AN INCREASE
IN CONVECTION OVER THE LAST SIX HOURS. TC 10S IS CURRENTLY
BEING STEERED BY A LOW TO MID-LEVEL RIDGE LOCATED TO
THE SOUTH. TC 10S IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY AT A LESS
THAN CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE DUE TO MODERATE OUTFLOW
AND WEAK TO MODERATE SHEAR. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS
CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, NCEP AVIATION, AND UKMET EGRR ARE
IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. THIS FORECAST IS
BASED ON A CONSENSUS OF THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 271200Z2 IS 08 FEET.

AT 09 KNOTS DURING THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS
BASED ON 281730Z1 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY AND RECENT
MICROWAVE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 55, 65, AND 77 KNOTS. TC 10S IS
CURRENTLY BEING STEERED BY A LOW TO MID-LEVEL RIDGE LOCATED TO
THE EAST AND SOUTH. TC 10S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TRACKING
POLEWARD THROUGH 24 HOURS AND THEN WESTWARD AS THE RIDGE BUILDS
BACK TO THE WEST. TC 10S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY
AT A SLIGHTLY HIGHER THAN CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE THROUGH 36 HOURS
WHILE IN A GOOD ENVIRONMENT. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS
CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, GFDN, NCEP AVIATION, AND UKMET EGRR ARE
IN POOR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. NOGAPS AND GFDN ARE 
STEERING THE SYSTEM AT A SHALLOWER LEVEL AND KEEP THE MOVEMENT

REMARKS:
302100Z6 POSITION NEAR 15.5S1 61.6E3.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (FRANK), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 365 
NM NORTHEAST OF MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD AT 03
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS
BASED ON 301730Z4 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING 
INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 102 
AND 115 KNOTS. TC 10S IS CURRENTLY BEING STEERED BY A MID-LEVEL
RIDGE BUILDING IN FROM THE SOUTHWEST. HIGH PRESSURE IS EXPECTED
TO BUILD IN FROM THE NORTH TRANSITIONING TC 10S TO A NEW STEERING
ENVIRONMENT AND SENDING TC 10S ON A MORE EASTWARD TRACK. TC 10S IS 
EXPECTED TO INITIALLY TRACK SLOWLY WESTWARD AND THEN RECURVE
EASTWARD UNDER THIS SCENARIO. TC 10S SHOULD CONTINUE TO SLOWLY
INTENSIFY AS MOST OF THE MODELS DEPICT A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT FOR
CONTINUED INTENSIFICATION. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS CONSISTING OF 
NOGAPS, GFDN, NCEP GFS, WBAR AND UKMET EGRR ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH 
THIS SCENARIO. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 301800Z2 IS 22 FEET.

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (FRANK), LOCATED IN THE SOUTH INDIAN
OCEAN, HAS MOVED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS.
THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 311730Z5 ENHANCED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 102 AND 115 KNOTS. THE LATEST ANALYSIS
OF ENHANCED INFRARED IMAGERY SHOWS THAT THE 15 NM DIAMETER IRREGULAR
EYE HAS BECOME MORE DISTINCT AND HAS WARMED IN THE PAST 6 HOURS.
TC 10S IS EXPECTED TO INCREASE IN SPEED AND BEGIN TRACKING POLEWARD
AS A MID-LEVEL RIDGE BUILDS TO THE EAST. TC 10S IS EXPECTED TO SLOWLY
INTENSIFY OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS WHILE OUTFLOW REMAINS FAVORABLE.
TC 10S WILL THEN SLOWLY WEAKEN THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST
PERIOD AS THE OUTFLOW WEAKENS. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS CONSISTING OF
NOGAPS, GFDN, WBAI, NCEP GFS, AND UKMET EGRR ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH

REMARKS:
020900Z1 POSITION NEAR 17.4S2 67.6E9.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (FRANK), LOCATED 645 NM SOUTH-
SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD
AT 10 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION
IS BASED ON 020530Z0 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY.
THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 102, 115, AND 127 KNOTS. A 020700Z9 VISIBLE
SATELLITE IMAGE DEPICTS A SMALL, SYMMETRICAL 10 NM DIAMETER
EYE. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS FAVORABLE OUTFLOW ALOFT
AND IS EXPECTED TO MAINTAIN INTENSITY OVER THE NEXT 12 HOURS
AND THEN SLOWLY WEAKEN. TC 10S IS EXPECTED TO TRACK EAST-SOUTH-
EASTWARD THROUGH 24 HOURS ALONG A MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
TO THE NORTHEAST AND THEN MORE POLEWARD AS A RIDGE BUILDS TO THE
EAST. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, GFDN,
NCEP GFS, AND UKMET EGRR ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 020600Z8 IS 40 FEET. NEXT
WARNINGS AT 022100Z5 AND 030900Z2. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 09S
(ELITA) WARNINGS (WTXS31 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES. REFER

REMARKS:
042100Z7 POSITION NEAR 19.3S3 69.9E4.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (FRANK), LOCATED 710 NM EAST OF
MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 05 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 041730Z5
ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY
IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 102
AND 115 KNOTS. TC 10S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TRACKING
POLEWARD THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD ALONG THE WESTERN
PERIPHERY OF THE MID-LEVEL STEERING RIDGE TO THE EAST OF
THE SYSTEM. TC 10S IS FORECAST TO REMAIN STEADY OR WEAKEN
IN INTENSITY SLOWLY THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD AS THE
SYSTEM TRACKS TOWARDS COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND
THE EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL WEAKENS. THE AVAILABLE
DYNAMIC AIDS CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, GFDN, NCEP GFS, AND
UKMET EGRR ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 041800Z3 IS 24 FEET.
NEXT WARNINGS AT 050900Z4 AND 052100Z8. REFER TO TROPICAL

REMARKS:
050900Z4 POSITION NEAR 20.1S3 70.0E7.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (FRANK), LOCATED 700 NM EAST OF
MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 03 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 050530Z3
MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY
IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 90
AND 102 KNOTS. TC 10S IS EXPECTED TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD
ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE TO THE EAST. TC 10S IS FORECAST TO WEAKEN SLOWLY
THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS TOWARDS
COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW
DECREASES. TC 10S IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN EXTRATROPICAL
TRANSITION IN 36 TO 48 HOURS. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS,
CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, GFDN, NCEP GFS, AND UKMET EGRR ARE
IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. GFS FIELDS INDICATE
FASTER EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION, RESULTING IN A FASTER
TRACK. THE FORECAST IS BASED ON A CONSENSUS OF ALL
AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
050600Z1 IS 24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 052100Z8 AND 060900Z5.

REMARKS:
062100Z9 POSITION NEAR 24.3S9 076.4E7.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (FRANK), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 1040
NM EAST-SOUTHEAST OF MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED EAST
SOUTHEASTWARD AT 17 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE
WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 061730Z7 ENHANCED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 30 AND 45 KNOTS. DEEP CONVECTION
OVER TC 10S HAS DISSIPATED DUE TO HIGH EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR. TC 10S HAS TRANSITIONED INTO AN EXTRATROPICAL SYSTEM
ALONG A WEAK BAROCLINIC BOUNDARY. TC 10S IS FORECAST TO
CONTINUE TO WEAKEN THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD AS THE SYSTEM
TRACKS TOWARDS COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND
CONTINUES TO ENCOUNTER UNFAVORABLE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. THE
SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD
ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE MID-LEVEL
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE NORTHEAST. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC
AIDS, CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, GFDN, NCEP GFS, AND UKMET EGRR ARE IN
FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON A
CONSENSUS OF ALL AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 061800Z5 IS 24 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.//
