SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT 311721ZDEC2004//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
115 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 14.7S2 120.9E2 TO 18.8S7
120.6E9 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 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MET
SAT IMAGERY AT 311430Z2 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS
LOCATED NEAR 15.2S8 120.9E2. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTH-SOUTH
EASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 14.7S2
120.9E2 IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 15.2S8 120.9E2, APPROXIMATELY 190 NM
WEST-NORTHWEST OF YAMPI SOUND, AUSTRALIA. ANIMATED SATELLITE IM-
AGERY REVEALS INCREASED CONSOLIDATION OF THE DEEP CONVECTION
OVER A POTENTIAL LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. ALL AVAILABLE
QUIKSCAT INFORMATION DOES  NOT SUPPORT THE EXISTENCE OF A WELL
DEFINED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER AT THE SURFACE. FURTHERMORE,
NEITHER THE NOGAPS OR GFS MODELS INITIALIZE ON A CIRCULATION. UPPER
LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES AN ENVIRONMENT OF LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
AND FAVORABLE DIVERGENCE UNDER THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. MAXIMUM
SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL
PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1000 MB. DUE TO INCREASED 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 011730Z2.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 315 NM NORTH-
NORTHEAST OF PORT HEDLUND, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT
05 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
311730Z5 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 35 KNOTS. A RECENT 311132Z1
COLOR ENHANCED MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS DEEP CONVECTION PERSISTING OVER A
DEVELOPING CIRCULATION. THIS IMAGE ALSO REVEALED LOW LEVEL CLOUD LINES
CONVERGING TOWARDS THE CENTER. TC 07S IS FORECAST TO TRACK SLOWLY TO THE
SOUTHWEST ALONG THE NORTHERN EDGE OF A LOW TO MID LEVEL STEERING RIDGE
LOCATED IN CENTRAL AUSTRALIA. NONE OF THE AVAILABLE NUMERICAL MODELS HAVE
INITIALIZED ON THIS SYSTEM BRINGING SOME UNCERTAINTY TO THE CONFIDENCE OF
THE TRACK. TC 07S SHOULD CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT
UNDER THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 311800Z3

REMARKS:
010900Z0 POSITION NEAR 14.2S7 121.7E1.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 160 NM
NORTHWEST OF YAMPI SOUND, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED NORTH-
NORTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE
WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 010530Z9 MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 35 KNOTS. RECENT
MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY CLEARLY INDICATES THE LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) HAS BECOME FULLY EXPOSED
TO THE NORTHEAST OF THE DEEP CONVECTION. PREVIOUS POSITION
FIXING CORRELATED TO DEEP COVECTION WHICH HAS BEEN DISPLACED
TO THE SOUTHWEST OF THE LLCC. 010425Z2 TRMM, 010108Z0 SSMI,
312243Z5 SSMI AND 312228Z8 AMSU MICROWAVE IMAGES SUPPORT
THE NORTHEASTWARD TRACK OF THE LLCC OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS
AND THE RELOCATED WARNING POSITION. TC 07S IS FORECAST TO
INITIALLY TRACK SLOWLY TO THE NORTHEAST AND TURN SOUTHWARD
LATER IN THE FORECAST PERIOD. A LOW TO MID LEVEL STEERING
RIDGE LOCATED IN CENTRAL AUSTRALIA APPEARS TO BE PROVIDING
THE STEERING FLOW. HOWEVER, THE OVERALL STEERING ENVIRONMENT
IS WEAK. THE AVAILABLE NUMERICAL MODELS DO NOT INITIALIZE
WELL ON THIS SYSTEM. NOGAPS HOLDS NO CIRCULATION ON THIS
SYSTEM WHILE UK MET FORECASTS TC 07S TO BE QUASISTATIONARY
OVER THE FORECAST PERIOD AND NCEP GFS DEPICTS A FASTER
TRACK NORTHEAST THEN SOUTHWARD. AS A RESULT OF UNCERTAINTY
ASSOCIATED WITH THE MODEL DEPICTED STEERING ENVIRONMENT,
CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST TRACK FOR TC 07S IS REDUCED.
TC 07S SHOULD CONTINUE TO MODERATELY INTENSIFY IN A
FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT UNDER THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 010600Z7 IS 14 FEET. NEXT

012100Z4 POSITION NEAR 14.3S8 122.7E2.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 145 NM
NORTH-NORTHWEST OF YAMPI SOUND, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED
EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 03 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE
WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 011730Z2 INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 35 KNOTS. RECENT INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY INDICATES DEEP CONVECTION IS BEGINNING TO INCREASE
AND BECOME MORE ORGANIZED OVER A LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER. THE SYSTEM IS FORECASTED TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD
TOWARDS LAND AS IT IS STEERED ALONG THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF A
BUFFER TO THE NORTHEAST. THE LOCATION OF THE SYSTEM
EQUATORWARD OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AXIS IS BRINGING THE
SYSTEM PERIODS OF UNFAVORABLE VERTICAL SHEAR FROM THE
NORTHEAST. HOWEVER, ENOUGH POLEWARD DISPLACEMENT IS
EXPECTED TO OCCUR TO ALLOW THE SHEAR TO WEAKEN SUPPORTING
MODERATE INTENSIFICATION PRIOR TO LANDFALL. THE CONFIDENCE
IN FORECAST TRACK HAS INCREASED SIGNIFICANTLY NOW THAT MOST
OF THE NUMERICAL MODELS HAVE INITIALIZED ON THE SYSTEM. ALL
AVAILABLE MODELS FORECAST THE SYSTEM TO MAKE LANDFALL IN LESS
THAN 24 HOURS. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON A BLEND OF THE MODEL
GUIDANCE AND PERSISTENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
011800Z IS 17 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 020900Z1 AND 022100Z5.//
