SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT 042051Z JAN 05//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 150 NM RADIUS OF 9.4S3 173.5E6 WITHIN THE NEXT 06 TO 24 HOURS.
AVAILABLE DATA DOES NOT JUSTIFY ISSUANCE OF NUMBERED TROPICAL CY
CLONE WARNINGS AT THIS TIME. WINDS IN THE AREA ARE ESTIMATED TO
BE 25 TO 30 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY AT 041925Z1 INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 9.3S2 174.3E5. THE SYSTEM IS
MOVING NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS:
THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 9.1S0
174.9E1, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 9.3S2 174.3E5 APPROXIMATELY 585 NM
NORTH-NORTHWEST OF SUVA, FIJI. ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS
INCREASED ORGANIZATION OF THE DEEP CONVECTION. RECENT MICROWAVE
AND QUIKSCAT DATA SHOW A LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH
STRONGER CONVECTION ON THE EASTERN SEMICIRCLE. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS
REVEALS FAVORABLE DIFFLUENCE ALOFT AND LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR.
MAXIMUM SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM
SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1000 MB. 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 052100Z8.//

AT 09 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION
IS BASED ON 042330Z2 MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE
WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 30 AND 35 KNOTS. ANIMATED VISIBLE AND MICRO-

TC 08P IS FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTHWESTWARD AND THEN WEST-
WARD ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE STRENGTHENING
MID-LEVEL RIDGE ANCHORED SOUTHEAST OF FIJI. AVAILABLE
NUMERICAL MODELS ARE INITIALIZING POORLY ON THIS SYSTEM
BRINGING SOME UNCERTAINTY TO THE TRACK CONFIDENCE. TC 08P
SHOULD INTENSIFY AT A NEAR CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE IN A MOD-

REMARKS:
070300Z0 POSITION NEAR 16.6S3 166.0E3.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 08P (KERRY), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY
360 NM NORTH OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 15 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE
WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 35 AND 45 KNOTS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY INDICATES THE CONVECTION HAS BEGUN TO INCREASE
AND BECOME MORE ORGANIZED AS IT PASSED THROUGH VANUATU.
A RECENT SYNOPTIC OBSERVATION AT LAMAP, VANUATU REPORTED
30 KNOTS SUSTAINED WHILE BAUERFIELD TO THE SOUTH REPORTED
A MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE OF 1000.3 MB. A 061900Z6 QUIK-
SCAT PASS SHOWS THAT THE STRONGEST WINDS CONTINUE TO RE-
SIDE IN THE SOUTHERN SEMICIRCLE. TC 08P IS FORECAST TO
CONTINUE TRACKING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN
PERIPHERY OF THE MID-LEVEL RIDGE ANCHORED TO THE SOUTHEAST.
LATE IN THE FORECAST PERIOD, TC 08P IS EXPECTED TO SLOW
DOWN AS A MID-LEVEL RIDGE BUILDS IN FROM THE SOUTHWEST.
TC 08P IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY AT A NEAR CLIMATOLOGICAL
RATE AS IT BEGINS TO ENCOUNTER A MORE FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL
ENVIRONMENT. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS CONSISTING OF
NOGAPS, UKMET, GFDN, TCLAPS, AFWA MM5, WBAR AND NCEP GFS
ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. MAXIMUM SIG-
NIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 070000Z7 IS 20 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS
AT 071500Z3 AND 080300Z1.//

WESTWARD AT 13 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING
POSITION IS BASED ON 072330Z5 MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY.
THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 45, 65, AND 75 KNOTS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THAT THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO
INTENSIFY WITH INCREASED POLEWARD OUTFLOW. A 072140Z4 SSMI

IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG
THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE MID-LEVEL RIDGE ANCHORED
TO THE SOUTHEAST AND TO SLOW DOWN TO NEAR QUASISTATIONARY
AS IT ENCOUNTERS A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT. TC 08P IS
EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY IN A FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL
ENVIRONMENT OF WEAK VERTICAL SHEAR AND OUTFLOW IN THE
POLEWARD DIRECTION. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS CONSISTING OF
NOGAPS, UKMET, GFDN, TCLAPS, AFWA MM5, WBAR AND NCEP GFS
ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. MM5 IS A SIGNFICANT
POLEWARD OUTLIER RELATIVE TO THE OTHER MODELS. THIS FORECAST

IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 65 AND 77 KNOTS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THAT THE SYSTEM REMAINS WELL
ORGANIZED. A 080721Z8 QUIKSCAT PASS INDICATES THE SURFACE
WIND FIELD HAS BECOME MORE SYMMETRIC. A 081013Z3 SSMI PASS AT
85 GHZ DEPICTS A WELL DEFINED CLOUD FILLED EYE. TC 08P IS
FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG THE
NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE MID-LEVEL RIDGE CENTERED TO THE
SOUTHEAST AND CONTINUE TO SLOW AS IT ENCOUNTERS A WEAK
STEERING ENVIRONMENT. TC 08P IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO
INTENSIFY IN A FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT OF WEAK
VERTICAL SHEAR AND OUTFLOW IN THE POLEWARD DIRECTION. MODEL
DEPICTED STEERING ENVIRONMENTS DISAGREE AMONG THE AVAILABLE
DYNAMIC AIDS AND INCREASING DIVERGENCE IN MODEL SOLUTIONS FOR
THE TRACK OF TC 08P HAS DEVELOPED OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 081200Z1 IS 26 FEET.

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 08P (KERRY), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY
295 NM WEST-NORTHWEST OF POUM, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 03 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING
POSITION IS BASED ON 082330Z6 MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 65 AND 77 KNOTS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEAL A 11 NM RAGGED EYE FEATURE. TC 08P
IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD TO
WESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE MID-LEVEL
RIDGE CENTERED TO THE EAST-SOUTHEAST. TRACK IS FORECAST TO
REMAIN SLOW AS THE STEERING ENVIRONMENT REMAINS SOMEWHAT
WEAK. TC 08P IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY IN AN
UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT OF WEAK VERTICAL SHEAR WITH THE
POTENTIAL FOR INCREASED OUTFLOW IN THE POLEWARD DIRECTION.
MODEL DEPICTED STEERING ENVIRONMENTS ARE IN VERY POOR
AGREEMENT AMONG THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS, WITH 3 CLUSTERS
REMAINING. UKMET EGRR AND NCEP GFS STEERING THE SYSTEM
NORTHWEST, TOWARD THE EQUATOR, WITH THE PRIMARY STEERING
INFLUENCE ALTERING TO THE RIDGE WEST OF THE SYSTEM. GFDN
CONTINUES TO INDICATE A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT BETWEEN
THE TWO RIDGES THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. NOGAPS TRACKS
THE SYSTEM POLEWARD, ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE RIDGE
TO THE EAST WITH INCREASING TRACK SPEED AT THE END OF THE
FORECAST PERIOD. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF ALL
THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS WITH CONSIDERATION OF THE WEAK
STEERING ENVIRONMENT. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT

REMARKS:
101500Z7 POSITION NEAR 19.3S3 159.5E0.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 08P (KERRY), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 440 NM
WEST-NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD
AT 06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED
ON 101130Z6 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING
INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF
90 KNOTS. TC 08P HAS BEGUN TO TRACK POLEWARD ALONG THE WESTERN
PERIPHERY OF THE MIDDLE LEVEL STEERING RIDGE LOCATED EAST OF THE
SYSTEM. THE CYCLONE WILL BEGIN TO SLOWLY WEAKEN AS IT TRACKS POLE-
WARD INTO AN ENVIRONMENT OF HIGHER VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND COOLER
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
101200Z4 IS 36 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 110300Z5 AND 111500Z8.//

POSITION IS BASED ON 102330Z9 MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY.
THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 65 AND 102 KNOTS AND A SIGNIFICANT WEAKENING TREND
NOTED IN SATELLITE IMAGERY. ANIMATED VISIBLE AND MICROWAVE
IMAGERY SHOW DEEP INFLOW OF COOL, DRY AIR INTO THE LOW LEVEL

SIDE OF THE WEAKENING DEEP CONVECTION. TC 08P IS FORECAST TO
CONTINUE TRACKING SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHEASTERN PERIPHERY
OF THE STRENGTHENING LOW LEVEL STEERING RIDGE ANCHORED SOUTH AND
WEST OF THE SYSTEM. THE CYCLONE IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN STEADILY
AND DISSIPATE BY TAU 48 AS IT TRACKS INTO AN ENVIRONMENT OF
HIGHER VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND COOL, DRY AIR. MAXIMUM SIGNI-
FICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 110000Z2 IS 28 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
