SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT 031351ZFEB2005//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
215 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 12.9S2 169.5W1 TO 17.6S4
163.2W2 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 30 TO 35 KNOTS.
METSAT IMAGERY AT 031130Z8 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS
LOCATED NEAR 14.0S5 168.1W6. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING NORTH-NORTH
EASTWARD AT 08 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 15.0S6
168.1W6 IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 14.0S5 168.1W6, APPROXIMATELY 150 NM
EAST OF PAGO PAGO, AMERICAN SAMOA. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY INDICATES IMPROVED CONVECTION OVER A WELL DEVELOPED LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY AND UPPER
LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES GOOD OUTFLOW AND LOW TO MODERATE VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR OVER THE AREA. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE
ESTIMATED AT 30 TO 35 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED
TO BE 1001 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
041400Z9.//

032100Z6 POSITION NEAR 13.6S0 166.7W0.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 15P, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 220 NM EAST
OF PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED EAST-NORTHEASTWARD AT 09 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 031730Z4
ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS
BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 30, 35 AND
45 KNOTS. THE 031719Z1 AMSU/B AND 031754Z0 SSM/I MICROWAVE IM-
AGES REVEAL THAT THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER HAS RECENTLY
BECOME PARTIALLY EXPOSED. TC 15P IS FORECAST TO TRACK EASTWARD
EARLY IN THE FORECAST PERIOD, INTENSIFYING SLOWLY IN AN ENVIR-
ONMENT OF WEAK VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND FAVORABLE DIFFLUENCE.
AFTER 12 HOURS, THE SYSTEM WILL BEGIN TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD
ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE LOW TO MID-LEVEL STEERING
RIDGE ANCHORED TO THE SOUTHEAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 031800Z2 IS 14 FEET. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND
CANCELS REF A, NAVPACMETOCCEN 031351ZFEB2005 TROPICAL CYCLONE
FORMATION ALERT (WTPS21 PGTW 031400). NEXT WARNINGS AT 040900Z3

REMARKS:
040900Z3 POSITION NEAR 14.1S6 166.7W0.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 15P (MEENA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 275 NM
EAST OF PAGO PAGO, AMERICAN SAMOA, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEAST
AT 06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED
ON 040530Z2 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING
INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF
55 AND 65 KNOTS. RECENT ANIMATED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THAT DEEP
CONVECTION CONTINUES TO CYCLE OVER A WELL DEFINED LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS GOOD
VENTILATION IN THE EQUATORWARD DIRECTION. TC 15P IS FORECAST TO
BEGIN TRACKING POLEWARD AS A MID LEVEL STEERING RIDGE BEGINS TO
BUILD IN FROM THE EAST. ALL AVAILABLE MODELS SHOW THAT THE VERTICAL
SHEAR WILL REMAIN WEAK AND THE OUTFLOW FAVORABLE, SO THE CYCLONE IS
FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY. THE AVAILABLE NUMERICAL MODELS
OF NCEP GFS, NOGAPS, WBAR, AND UKMET ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH
THIS SCENARIO. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 150600Z2 IS 26
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 042100Z7 AND 050900Z4.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 15P (MEENA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 300 NM EAST
OF PAGO PAGO, AMERICAN SAMOA, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEAST AT 07 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 55, 65, AND 77 KNOTS.
RECENT ANIMATED ENHANCED WATER VAPOR SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS STRONG
EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW SOURCING FROM THE EASTERN SEMICIRCLE OF THE SYS-
TEM. DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS, TC 15P IS FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTHEAST-
WARD AROUND THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE STEERING RIDGE. OUTFLOW
IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN FAVORABLE, HOWEVER A SLIGHT INCREASE IN VERTI-
CAL WIND SHEAR WILL SLOW THE INTENSIFICATION RATE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFI-
CANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 041800Z3 IS 26 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 050900Z4

REMARKS:
050900Z4 POSITION NEAR 15.2S8 163.5W5.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 15P (MEENA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 450
NM NORTH-NORTHWEST OF RAROTONGA, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEAST
AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS
BASED ON 050530Z3 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE
WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 77 AND 90 KNOTS. RECENT ANIMATED ENHANCED WATER
VAPOR SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS GOOD EQUATORWARD AND EASTWARD
OUTFLOW. TC 15P IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING SOUTHEASTWARD
AROUND THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE STEERING RIDGE. OUTFLOW IS
EXPECTED TO REMAIN FAVORABLE, BUT WILL BE OFFSET BY A SLIGHT
INCREASE IN VERTICAL WIND SHEAR WHICH WILL SLOW THE INTENSIFICATION
RATE. BY TAU 48, TC 15P WILL BEGIN THE EARLY STAGES OF EXTRA-
TROPICAL TRANSITION. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 050600Z1
IS 36 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 052100Z8 AND 060900Z5.//

REMARKS:
052100Z8 POSITION NEAR 17.2S0 162.4W3.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 15P (MEENA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 325 NM
NORTH-NORTHWEST OF RAROTONGA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 10
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
051730Z6 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY
IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 115 AND 127
KNOTS. RECENT ANIMATED ENHANCED WATER VAPOR SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS
SIGNIFICANT EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW, AND MICROWAVE IMAGERY SHOWS A WELL
DEFINED EYE. TC 15P IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING POLEWARD AROUND
THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE ANCHORED OVER
TAHITI. DUE TO VERY FAVORABLE OUTFLOW AND THE FORMATION OF AN EYE,
THE INTENSITY OF TC 15P IS EXPECTED TO STRENGTHEN AT A CLIMATOLOGICAL
RATE THROUGH THE ENTIRE FORECAST PERIOD. AFTER TAU 48, THE SYSTEM
SHOULD MERGE WITH THE MIDLATITUDE WESTERLIES AND BEGIN EXTRATROPICAL
TRANSITION. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 051800Z4 IS 38 FEET.

REMARKS:
062100Z9 POSITION NEAR 22.2S6 158.0W4.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 15P (MEENA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 45 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF RAROTONGA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 24 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 061730Z7 ENHANCED
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATEL-
LITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 115 AND 127 KNOTS. RECENT ANIMA-
TED ENHANCED WATER VAPOR SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS A DECREASE IN
EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW AND AN EROSION OF DEEP CONVECTION ON THE WESTERN
SEMICIRCLE. TC 15P IS FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD IN RESPONSE
TO A TRANSIENT MAJOR SHORTWAVE TROUGH. BETWEEN TAUS 24 AND 36, THE
SYSTEM WILL START TO MERGE WITH THE BAROCLINIC ZONE AND BEGIN EXTRA-
TROPICAL TRANSITION. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 061800Z5 IS
22 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 070900Z6 AND 072100Z0. REFER TO TROPICAL
CYCLONE 16P (HARVEY) WARNINGS (WTPS32 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY
UPDATES.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 15P (MEENA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 260 NM SOUTH-

06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 070530Z5 ENHANCED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 77 AND 102 KNOTS. RECENT UPPER AIR ANALYSIS
INDICATES A DECREASE IN OUTFLOW AND MODERATE TO HIGH VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR. ANIMATED ENHANCED WATER VAPOR SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS AN
OVERALL DECREASE IN DEEP CONVECTION. TC 15P IS FORECAST TO RAPIDLY
TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD IN RESPONSE TO A TRANSIENT MAJOR SHORTWAVE TROUGH.
BETWEEN TAUS 24 AND 36, THE SYSTEM WILL START TO MERGE WITH THE BARO-
CLINIC ZONE AND BEGIN TRANSITION TO AN EXTRA-TROPICAL SYSTEM. EXPECT
TRANSITION TO BE COMPLETE BY THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM

32 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS
BASED ON 071730Z8 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY.
THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON QUIKSCAT MEASUREMENTS
OF 50 KNOTS AND SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF
55 AND 77 KNOTS. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR SATELLITE IMAGERY
INDICATES THAT THE SYTEM IS FULLY INTEGRATED INTO THE
MID-LATITUDES AND HAS COMPLETED EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 071800Z6 IS 08 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.//
