SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT CORRECTED 011451ZJAN2004//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
145 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 16.5S2 123.9E5 TO 17.9S7
117.0E9 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 35 KNOTS. MET
SAT IMAGERY, SYNOPTIC DATA AND RADAR DATA AT 011130Z6 INDICATE
THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 16.4S1 123.1E7. THE
SYSTEM IS MOVING WESTWARD AT 11 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: LATEST ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
REVEALS A LOW PRESSURE AREA OVER LAND IS MOVING OFF SHORE AND
HAS THE POTENTIAL TO DEVELOP INTO A TROPICAL CYCLONE. RECENT
MICROWAVE IMAGERY SUPPORTS LOCATION OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
021500Z8.
4. JUSTIFICATION FOR CORRRECTION: CORRECTED GRAMMAR AND
SPACING ERROR IN RMKS.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 08S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY
320 NM NORTHWEST OF PORT HEDLAND, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD
AT 10 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION
IS BASED ON 011730Z2 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY.
THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON CURRENT SATELLITE
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 25 AND 30 KNOTS.  TC 08S IS EXPECTED
TO TRACK WESTWARD THROUGH THE FORECAST ALONG THE EQUATORWARD
PERIPHERY OF A MID LEVEL  RIDGE LOCATED TO THE SOUTHEAST.
TC 08S IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY SLOWLY THROUGH THE FORECAST
PERIOD IN A MODERATELY FAVORABLE WIND SHEAR ENVIRONMENT.
THE FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF NOGAPS, NCEP GFS, UKMET
(EGRR), WBAR AND THE BETA ADVECTION MODELS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 011800Z0 IS 08 FEET. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND

REMARKS:
030900Z2 POSITION NEAR 16.5S2 116.9E7.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 08S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 410 NM NORTH-
NORTHEAST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 04
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
030530Z1 MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY
IS BASED ON CURRENT SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 35 KNOTS.
TC 08S IS EXPECTED TO TRACK GENERALLY WESTWARD THROUGH THE
FORECAST PERIOD ALONG THE NORTHWEST PERIPHERY OF A MID-LEVEL
RIDGE ANCHORED OVER AUSTRALIA. TC 08S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE
TO INTENSIFY SLOWLY AS IT REMAINS EQUATORWARD OF THE UPPER
LEVEL RIDGE AXIS WITH MODERATE OUTFLOW CONDITIONS. THE FORECAST
IS BASED ON A BLEND OF NOGAPS, NCEP GFS, GFDN, UKMET (EGRR),
AND WBAR. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 030600Z9 IS 12
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 031500Z9, 032100Z6, 040300Z7 AND 040900Z3.

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 08S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 345 NM
NORTH-NORTHEAST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE
WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 031730Z4 ENHANCED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 30 AND 35 KNOTS.
TC 08S CONTINUES TO REMAIN WEAK AND DIFFICULT TO LOCATE.
TC 08S IS EXPECTED TO TRACK SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG THE
NORTHWEST PERIPHERY OF A MID-LEVEL STEERING RIDGE LOCATED
TO THE SOUTHEAST OF THE SYSTEM AND THEN TRANSITION TO A
MORE POLEWARD TRACK LATER IN THE FORECAST PERIOD AS A
MAJOR SHORTWAVE TROUGH APPROACHES FROM THE SOUTHWEST AND
WEAKENS THE RIDGE. TC 08S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO
SLOWLY INTENSIFY THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE
FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF NOGAPS, NCEP GFS, GFDN,
AND UKMET (EGRR). THE GFDN SOLUTION IS A SIGNIFICANT
OUTLIER RELATIVE TO THE OTHER DYNAMIC MODELS RECURVING
TC 08S TOWARDS THE EQUATOR. THIS SOLUTION IS CONSIDERED
UNLIKELY BASED ON THE CURRENT SYNOPTIC SITUATION. THE
FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF PERSISTENCE AND THE
CONSENSUS OF THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC MODELS WITH LESS
EMPHASIS ON GFDN. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
