SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT 040151ZDEC2004//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
195 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 8.9S7 112.1E5 TO 13.1S5 105.9E5
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
032330Z1 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR
10.6S7 109.8E8. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 08
KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 9.8S7
112.4E8 IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 10.6S7 109.8E8, APPROXIMATELY 320 NM
SOUTHEAST OF JAKARTA, INDONESIA. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR AND ENHANCED
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS LOW LEVEL CLOUD LINES CONVERGING
ON A DEVELOPING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). DEEP CONVECTION
HAS CONTINUED TO IMPROVE OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS WITH SPIRAL BANDING
INDICATING A GOOD OUTFLOW ENVIRONMENT. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES
A FAVORABLE REGION OF WEAK VERTICAL SHEAR AND GOOD UPPER LEVEL
DIVERGENCE. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO
30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE 1005 MB.
BASED ON IMPROVED ORGANIZATION, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF
A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS UPGRADED
TO GOOD.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
050200Z7.//

REMARKS:
040900Z3 POSITION NEAR 11.1S3 109.0E0.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 05S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 320 NM SOUTH-
SOUTHEAST OF JAKARTA, INDONESIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD
AT 07 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED
ON 040530Z2 MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY
IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 30 AND 35
KNOTS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS INCREASING
ORGANIZATION OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) AND AN
INCREASE IN CONVECTION OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. TC 05S IS FORECAST
TO TRACK WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A LOW
TO MID-LEVEL ANTICYCLONE ANCHORED TO THE SOUTHEAST OF THE SYSTEM.
THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY STEADILY IN A FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT THROUGH TAU 24. INTENSIFICATION AFTER TAU 24 WILL BE
HINDERED AS TC 05S ENTERS AN ENVIRONMENT OF MODERATE VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH AN APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 040600Z0 IS 08 FEET. THIS WARNING SUPER-
SEDES AND CANCELS REF A, NAVPACMETOCCEN 040151Z1 DEC 04 TROPICAL
CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT (WTXS21 PGTW 040200). NEXT WARNINGS AT

REMARKS:
042100Z7 POSITION NEAR 12.9S2 107.4E2.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 05S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 390 NM SOUTH
OF JAKARTA, INDONESIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
041730Z5 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING
INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF
35 AND 45 KNOTS. TC 05S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO TRACK SOUTH-
WESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A LOW TO MID-LEVEL
ANTICYCLONE CENTERED TO THE SOUTHEAST OF THE SYSTEM AND THE
TROPICAL EASTERLIES. THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO MODERATELY INTEN-
SIFY IN A MARGINALLY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT OF MODERATE VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR AND POOR UPPER LEVEL DIVERGENCE. HOWEVER, ANIMATED
WATER VAPOR SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS A LOSS OF DEEP CONVECTION
OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
041800Z3 IS 13 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 050900Z4 AND 052100Z8.//
