REF/A/RMG/NAVPACMETOCCEN PEARL HARBOR HI/301851Z DEC 03//

1. IMMEDIATE DELIVERY REQ TO AMEMBASSY SUVA
2. AMEMBASSY SUVA REQ PASS TO USAID OFDA ADVISOR
3. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 120 NM RADIUS OF 13.4S8 176.9W3 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 20 TO 25 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY AT 311730Z5 INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 13.1S5 177.1W6. THE SYSTEM IS
DRIFTING SOUTHWARD AT 01 KNOTS.
4. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 13.1S5
176.7W1 IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 13.1S5 177.1W6, APPROXIMATELY 260 NM
WEST OF APIA, WESTERN SAMOA. RECENT INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
REVEALS THAT DEEP CYCLING CONVECTION IS DISPLACED NORTHEAST OF
A LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. UPPER AIR ANALYSIS REVEALS AN
ENVIRONMENT OF WEAK VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND WEAK EQUATORWARD
OUTFLOW. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 998MB.
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 20 TO 25 KNOTS.
THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE
WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS REMAINS GOOD. THIS SUPERSEDES REF A.
5. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED
BY 011900Z1.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY
240 NM NORTHWEST OF APIA, WESTERN SAMOA, HAS TRACKED
NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX
HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 312330Z2 MULTI-
SPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS
BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 25
AND 35 KNOTS.  RECENT MICROWAVE IMAGERY REVEALS THAT
THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER IS NO LONGER EXPOSED
AND THAT DEEP CONVECTION HAS INCREASED SIGNIFICANTLY
OVER THE LAST 6 HOURS. TC 07P IS EXPECTED TO TRACK
EASTWARD WITH THE EQUATORIAL WESTERLIES THROUGH 24 HOURS.
AFTER TAU 24, TC 07P IS FORECAST TO TRACK POLEWARD ALONG
THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE LOW-MID LEVEL RIDGE LOCATED
TO THE SOUTHEAST. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY
SLOWLY IN A MODERATELY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT THROUGH
THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND
OF NOGAPS, UKMET (EGRR), AND THE BETA ADVECTION MODELS.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 010000Z1 IS 15 FEET.
THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS REF A (WTPS21 PGTW 311900).

REMARKS:
020900Z1 POSITION NEAR 8.1S9 174.0W2.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY
340 NM NORTH-NORTHWEST OF APIA, WESTERN SAMOA, HAS
TRACKED EAST-NORTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 020530Z0
INFARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED
ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 35, 45 AND 55
KNOTS. RECENT MICROWAVE IMAGERY REVEALS THE DEEP CONVECTION
IS NORTH OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). TC 07P
IS EXPECTED TO INITIALLY TRACK EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AND THEN
CONTINUE RECURVING TO A MORE POLEWARD TRACK. THE SYSTEM IS
FORECAST TO INTENSIFY SLOWLY IN A MODERATELY FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC
AIDS, CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, NCEP GFS, UKMET (EGRR) AND THE BETA
ADVECTION MODELS ARE SEPARATED INTO TWO DISTINCT CLUSTERS.
THE DYNAMIC AIDS DEPICT A SHARP RECURVE SCENARIO WITH THE
TC RECURVING BACK UPON ITSELF AND CROSSING OVER THE HISTORICAL
TRACK. THE BETA ADVECTION MODELS CONTINUE TO DEPICT A MORE
GRADUAL RECURVE SITUATION. THE FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND
OF NOGAPS, UKMET (EGRR), AND THE BETA ADVECTION MODELS.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 020600Z8 IS 17 FEET.

REMARKS:
031500Z9 POSITION NEAR 11.0S2 174.3W5.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (HETA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 240 NM
NORTHWEST OF APIA, WESTERN SAMOA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD
AT 07 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED
ON 031130Z8 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS
BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 65 KNOTS. ANIMATED
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATES GOOD RADIAL OUTFLOW AND AN INCREASE IN
DEEP CONVECTION OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. TC 07P IS EXPECTED TO
CONTINUE TRACKING POLEWARD ALONG THE WESTERN EDGE OF A BUILDING MID-
LEVEL STEERING RIDGE TO THE EAST THROUGH 36 TO 48 HOURS AND THEN
ACCELERATE TO THE SOUTHEAST AS A PASSING TROUGH WEAKENS THE STEERING
RIDGE. TC 07P IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY AT A CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE
THROUGH 36 HOURS, AND THEN WEAKEN AS IT BEGINS TO TRANSITION INTO
AN EXTRATROPICAL SYSTEM. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS CONSISTING OF
NOGAPS, UKMET (EGRR), GFDN, AND NCEP GFS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH
THIS SCENARIO. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF THE AVAILABLE
DYNAMIC AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 031200Z6 IS 28 FEET.

040900Z3 POSITION NEAR 11.7S9 174.5W7.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (HETA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 225 NM
NORTHWEST OF APIA, WESTERN SAMOA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-
SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE WARNING
POSITION IS BASED ON 040530Z2 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE
WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 77 AND 90 KNOTS. A 040508Z7 QUIKSCAT PASS DEPICTS
A VERY LARGE SYSTEM. TC 07P IS FORECASTED TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD
ALONG THE WESTERN EDGE OF A MID-LEVEL STEERING RIDGE TO THE EAST
AND ACCELERATE BY THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD AS IT BEGINS
EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION. TC 07P IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY
THROUGH 24 TO 36 HOURS. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS CONSISTING
OF NOGAPS, UKMET (EGRR), GFDN, AND NCEP GFS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT
WITH THIS SCENARIO. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF
PERSISTENCE AND THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT

FORECAST THE FAVORABLE OUTFLOW ENVIRONMENT TO CONTINUE FOR ANOTHER
6 TO 12 HOURS. THEREFORE, TC 07P STILL HAS THE POTENTIAL TO INTENSIFY
FOR AT LEAST ANOTHER ONE HALF ON THE DVORAK SCALE. TC 07P WILL REACH
PEAK INTENSITY IN 6 TO 12 HOURS AND THEN SLOWLY WEAKEN AS IT ENCOUNTERS
INCREASING VERTICAL SHEAR AND COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES. TC 07P
IS FORECASTED TO TRACK POLEWARD ALONG THE WESTERN EDGE OF A MID-LEVEL
STEERING RIDGE TO THE EAST AND THEN ACCELERATE SOUTHEASTWARD AS IT
TRANSITIONS TO AN EXTRATROPICAL LOW IN 48 HOURS. TC 07P SHOULD COMPLETE
TRANSITION TO AN EXTRATROPICAL LOW IN 72 HOURS. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC
AIDS CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, UKMET (EGRR), GFDN, AND NCEP GFS ARE IN GOOD
AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF
PERSISTENCE AND THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 050000Z5 IS 39 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 050900Z4, 051500Z1,

REMARKS:
072100Z0 POSITION NEAR 29.5S6 159.9W4.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (HETA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 420 NM
SOUTH OF RAROTONGA, COOK ISLANDS, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT
16 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED
ON 071730Z8 MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY
IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 65 KNOTS.
ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS COOLER, DRIER AIR BEING
ENTRAINED FROM THE WEST WHICH IS CAUSING THE SYSTEM TO RAPIDLY
WEAKEN. A RECENT MICROWAVE PASS INDICATES A FULLY EXPOSED LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER. TC 07P IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING
SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD AS IT INTERACTS WITH
MID-LATITUDE NORTHWESTERLIES ASSOCIATED WITH THE TROUGH TO THE WEST.
THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO WEAKEN AS IT ENCOUNTERS
INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND TRANSITIONS TO AN EXTRATROPICAL
SYSTEM. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, UKMET (EGRR),
AND GFDN ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. THIS FORECAST IS
BASED ON A BLEND OF PERSISTENCE AND THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 071800Z6 IS 37 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
080900Z7 AND 082100Z1.//

REMARKS:
080900Z7 POSITION NEAR 32.3S8 158.4W8.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (HETA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 615 NM
SOUTH OF RAROTONGA, COOK ISLANDS, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT
16 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
080530Z6 MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS
BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 25 AND 45 KNOTS.
ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY AND RECENT MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
REVEALS THAT TC 07P HAS ALMOST COMPLETELY TRANSITIONED INTO AN
EXTRATROPICAL LOW. THE LOW LEVEL REMAINS EXPOSED WITH COLD, DRY AIR
ENTRAINING FROM THE NORTHWEST AND COMPLETE ABSENCE OF DEEP CONVECTION
OVER THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS
CONSISTING OF NOGAPS, UKMET (EGRR), NCEP GFS AND GFDN ARE IN GOOD
AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF
PERSISTENCE AND THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 080600Z4 IS 20 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.//
