AMPN/REF IS TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT (WTXS21 PGTW 200830)//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
110 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 7.3S0 79.5E1 TO 8.8S6 76.6E9
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 35 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY AT
212330Z1 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 8.0S8
78.3E8. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING EAST-NORTHEASTWARD AT 05 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 7.7S4
77.4E8, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 8.0S8 78.3E8, APPROXIMATELY 375 NM
EAST OF DIEGO GARCIA. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL AND RECENT MICROWAVE
IMAGERY SHOW THAT CONVECTION HAS BECOME MORE ORGANIZED OVER A
CONSOLIDATING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND FAVORABLE DIVERGENCE ALOFT.
MAXIMUM SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM
SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1002 MB. THE POTENTIAL
FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE
NEXT 24 HOURS IS REMAINS GOOD. THIS SUPERSEDES REF A.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
220230Z9.
4. JUSTIFICATION FOR REISSUE: UPDATED FORMATION AREA PARA 1, AND
REMARKS IN PARA 2.//

REMARKS:
222100Z7 POSITION NEAR 8.7S5 76.3E6.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 04S (BENTO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 265 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT
05 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED
ON 221730Z5 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING
INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF
102 KNOTS. TC 04S HAS OSCILLATED SLIGHTLY NORTH, HOWEVER, THE
FORECASTED TRACK IS WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHERN PERI-
PHERY OF THE ANTICYCLONE ANCHORED SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM FOR THE
FORECAST PERIOD. TC 04S RAPIDLY INTENSIFIED AS A TROUGH LOCATED
TO THE SOUTHEAST OF THE SYSTEM MOVED EASTWARD CREATING A STRONG
POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL. THE INTENSITY OF TC 04S IS FORECAST TO
INTENSIFY SLIGHTLY AS IT REMAINS IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT OF LOW
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. THE SYSTEM WILL BEGIN TO WEAKEN LATE IN THE
FORECAST PERIOD AS THE OUTFLOW CHANNEL DIMINISHES AND TC 04S BEGINS
TO MOVE ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE RIDGE. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 221800Z3 IS 15 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
230900Z4 AND 232100Z8.//

REMARKS:
230300Z8 POSITION NEAR 8.4S2 76.1E4.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 04S (BENTO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 240 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT
04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
222330Z2 MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY
IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 115 AND 127
KNOTS. TC 04S HAS CONTINUED TO TRACK WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AS THE
NORTHWEST AND NORTHEAST QUADRANTS OF THE RIDGE HAVE BUILT EQUATOR-
WARD AROUND THE SYSTEM. THE RIDGE IS FORECAST TO WEAKEN IN THE NEXT
12 TO 24 HOURS AND TC 04S WILL BEGIN TO TRACK WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD
FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. TC 04S HAS CONTINUED TO
INTENSIFY AS IT REMAINS IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT OF LOW VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR AND GOOD UPPER LEVEL POLEWARD DIFFLUENCE. THE INTENSITY
OF TC 04S IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY SLIGHTLY UNTIL LATE IN THE
FORECAST PERIOD WHEN IT WILL START TO DECREASE AS THE OUTFLOW
CHANNEL DIMINISHES AND TC 04S BEGINS TO MOVE ALONG THE WESTERN
PERIPHERY OF THE RIDGE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 230000Z5
IS 18 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 231500Z1 AND 240300Z9.//

REMARKS:
230900Z4 POSITION NEAR 8.2S0 75.4E6.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 04S (BENTO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 210 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 05 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 230530Z3
MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 115, 127, AND 140 KNOTS.
RECENT ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL AND ENHANCED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY
REVEALS THE SYSTEM IS VENTING IN ALL RADIAL DIRECTIONS, AND THE POLE-
WARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL REMAINS VERY STRONG. ADDITIONALLY, THE SYSTEM
HAS A WELL-DEFINED EYE WITH INCREASED DEEP CONVECTION. TC 04S CONTIN-
UES TO TRACK AROUND THE NORTHWEST PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE SITUATED TO THE SOUTHEAST. DURING THE NEXT 12 HOURS, THE SYSTEM
WILL BEGIN TO TURN POLEWARD AND START TRACKING SOUTHWESTWARD. THE
INTENSITY OF TC 04S WILL GRADUALLY INCREASE AS THE OUTFLOW REMAINS
STRONG. AFTER TAU 36, THE SYSTEM WILL BEGIN TO WEAKEN AS IT MOVES
INTO AN ENVIRONMENT OF INCREASED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. MAXIMUM SIGNIF-
ICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 230600Z1 IS 20 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 231500Z1,
232100Z8, 240300Z9 AND 240900Z5.//

REMARKS:
231500Z1 POSITION NEAR 8.7S5 74.9E0.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 04S (BENTO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 175 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 231130Z0
ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED
ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 127 AND 140 KNOTS. RECENT
ANIMATED ENHANCED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY REVEALS THE POLEWARD OUTFLOW
CHANNEL HAS WEAKENED, HOWEVER THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO MAINTAIN GOOD
RADIAL OUTFLOW. ADDITIONALLY, AERIAL COVERAGE OF DEEP CONVECTION
AROUND THE EYE HAS DECREASED. DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS, THE SYSTEM
IS FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTHWESTWARD THEN BECOME MORE POLEWARD AS IT
MOVES AROUND THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE.
THE INTENSITY OF TC 04S WILL INCREASE GRADUALLY UP TO TAUS 24 AND 36.
AFTER TAU 48, INCREASED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR WILL BEGIN TO WEAKEN THE
SYSTEM. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 231200Z8 IS 20 FEET. NEXT
WARNINGS AT 240300Z9 AND 241500Z2.//

REMARKS:
240300Z9 POSITION NEAR 9.2S1 74.0E1.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 04S (BENTO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 145 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 07 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 232330Z3
MULTISPECTRAL. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 102, 127, AND 140 KNOTS. RECENT ANIMATED
MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS A RAPID INTENSITY DECREASE
AS THE CENTRAL CONVECTION HAS SIGNIFICANTLY DIMINISHED OVER THE PAST
SIX HOURS. THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO HAVE GOOD RADIAL OUTFLOW, HOWEVER,
THE LINKAGE WITH THE POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL IS WEAKENING. TC 04S
HAS BEGUN TO TRACK WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AND IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE
TRACKING POLEWARD FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE 
SYSTEM WILL GRADUALLY BEGIN TO WEAKEN AS IT MOVES INTO AN AREA OF
HIGHER VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
240000Z6 IS 24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 240900Z5, 241500Z2, 242100Z9
AND 250300Z0.//

REMARKS:
240900Z5 POSITION NEAR 9.4S3 73.6E6.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 04S (BENTO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 140 NM
SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 04 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 240530Z4
MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 127 AND 140 KNOTS. RECENT
ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL AND ENHANCED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY REVEALS THE
SYSTEM HAS UNDERGONE AN EYEWALL REPLACEMENT CYCLE, AND RADIAL OUTFLOW
CONTINUES TO BE STRONG IN ALL QUADRANTS. DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS,
TC 04S WILL TRACK SOUTHWESTWARD THEN BEGIN TO TRACK MORE POLEWARD
AFTER TAU 36. A TRANSIENT MAJOR SHORTWAVE TROUGH IS FORECAST TO
SLIGHTLY WEAKEN THE SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE WHICH WILL ALLOW FOR
THE CHANGE IN TRACK DIRECTION. THE INTENSITY OF THE SYSTEM WILL
REMAIN STEADY AS IT CONTINUES TO HAVE GOOD OUTFLOW, HOWEVER INCREASED
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AFTER TAU 48 WILL BEGIN TO WEAKEN TC 04S. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVEHEIGHT AT 240600Z2 IS 24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
242100Z9 AND 250900Z6.//

REMARKS:
242100Z9 POSITION NEAR 9.9S8 73.1E1.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 04S (BENTO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 135 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 04
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
241730Z7 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTEN-
SITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 115 AND
127 KNOTS. RECENT ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS A DECREASE
IN CONVECTION OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. THOUGH POLEWARD OUTLFOW
REMAINS STRONG, DRY AIR INTRUSION IS STARTING TO WEAKEN THE
SYSTEM. TC 04S IS FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTHWESTWARD OVER THE NEXT 24
HOURS, AND THEN MORE POLEWARD AFTER TAU 24. THE INTENSITY OF THE
SYSTEM WILL DECREASE THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD AS THE SYSTEM
TRACKS INTO AN ENVIRONMENT OF DRY AIR AND INCREASED VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 241800Z5 IS 26 FEET. NEXT
WARNINGS AT 250900Z6 AND 252100Z0.//

TRACKING TC 04S MORE SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD THAN PREVIOUSLY
FORECAST. CONVECTION HAS CONTINUED TO SLOWLY DECREASE OVER
THE PAST 12 HOURS. POLEWARD OUTLFOW REMAINS STRONG HOWEVER,
DRY AIR INTRUSION IS CONTRIBUTING TO SYSTEM WEAKENING. THE
INTENSITY OF THE SYSTEM WILL DECREASE THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST
PERIOD AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS INTO AN ENVIRONMENT OF DRY AIR AND
INCREASED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT
AT 250600Z3 IS 22 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 252100Z0 AND 260900Z7.//

BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 65 AND 77 KNOTS.
RECENT ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL AND ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
REVEALS THE SYSTEM IS BECOMING ELONGATED, AND DISORGANIZATION OF THE
DEEP CONVECTION IS WEAKENING THE INTENSITY. ADDITIONALLY, IT APPEARS
THE CONVECTION IS TRYING TO DECOUPLE FROM THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER. DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS, TC 04S IS EXPECTED TO TRACK GENE-
RALLY SOUTHWARD AROUND THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE SITUATED TO THE NORTHEAST. A TRANSIENT MAJOR SHORTWAVE TROUGH
HAS WEAKENED THE STEERING FLOW SLIGHTLY. HOWEVER, ONCE THIS FEATURE
PASSES THROUGH THE REGION, THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO TURN SOUTHWEST
AND BEGIN TRACKING AROUND THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE MIDLATITUDE
RIDGE. TC 04S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE A TREND OF OVERALL WEAKENING
AS IT MOVES INTO AN ENVIRONMENT OF INCREASED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR.

REMARKS:
280900Z9 POSITION NEAR 16.2S9 77.0E4.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 04S (BENTO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 600 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
272330Z7 MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY
IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 45 AND 55 KNOTS.
RECENT ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL IMAGERY REVEALS A FULLY EXPOSED LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC), AND MICROWAVE IMAGERY SHOWS THE
LLCC HAS DECOUPLED FROM THE DEEP CONVECTION. DURING THE NEXT 24 TO 36
HOURS, THE LLCC IS FORECAST TO DRIFT WESTWARD AROUND THE NORTHERN
PERIPHERY OF THE RIDGE AXIS SITUATED TO THE SOUTH. AFTER TAU 48, TC
04S WILL BEGIN TO DISSIPATE. THE INTENSITY OF THE SYSTEM SHOULD
STEADILY DECREASE AS IT MOVES INTO A REGION OF INCREASED VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 280600Z6 IS 16 FEET.
NEXT WARNINGS AT 282100Z3 AND 290900Z0.//
