SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT/050751ZMAR2005//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN 150
NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 17.2S0 166.6W9 TO 20.7S9 163.0W0 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 050530Z3 INDI-
CATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 17.7S5 166.1W4. THE
SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTHEASTWARD AT 12 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 16.7S4
167.0W4 IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 17.7S5 166.1W4, APPROXIMATELY 420 NM
WEST-NORTHWEST OF RAROTONGA. A 050612Z4 QUIKSCAT PASS INDICATES A
WELL DEVELOPED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). RECENT SATELLITE
IMAGERY INDICATES THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO BECOME MORE ORGANIZED WITH
A SPIRAL BAND CURVATURE FEATURE EVIDENT IN THE SOUTHERN QUADRANT.
UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES GOOD EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW AND THE LLCC
IS LOCATED IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. MAXIMUM
SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 30 TO 35 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 UPGRADED TO GOOD.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
060800Z4.//

REMARKS:
060300Z9 POSITION NEAR 21.8S1  163.6W6.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21P, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 265 NM WEST
OF RAROTONGA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 17 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST 06 HOURS. TC 21P IS FORECAST TO SLOW SIGNIFICANTLY
AND SHIFT TO A SOUTHWEST TRACK IN THE MID-PERIOD IN RESPONSE TO A
STRENGTHENING OF THE MID-LEVEL RIDGE LOCATED SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM.
INTENSIFICATION IS EXPECTED TO BE SLOW DUE TO A MODERATE VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR ENVIRONMENT. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS REF
A, (WTPS21 PGTW 050800). NEXT WARNINGS AT 061500Z2 AND 070300Z0.//
