MSGID/GENADMIN/NAVPACMETOCCEN PEARL HARBOR HI/JTWC//
SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT 231351Z JAN 05//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN 200
NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 14.2S7 110.9E1 TO 18.5S4 105.3E9 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. METSAT IMAGERY AT 231130Z0 INDI-
CATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 15.0S6 110.0E2. THE
SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTHWESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 14.0S5
112.0E4 IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 15.0S6 110.0E2, APPROXIMATELY 490 NM
NORTH-NORTHWEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA. RECENT ANIMATED MULTISPEC-
TRAL AND MICROWAVE SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS AN INCREASE IN DEEP
CONVECTION AROUND AN EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC).
ADDITIONALLY, ENHANCED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS AN INCREASE IN
RADIAL OUTFLOW WITH A DEVELOPING CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST. UPPER LEVEL
ANALYSIS INDICATES THE LLCC IS UNDERNEATH AN AXIS OF THE SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND FAVORABLE
DIVERGENCE. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO
30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1005 MB.
DUE TO THE INCREASE IN SURFACE INFLOW AS EVIDENT ON MICROWAVE IMAGERY
AND THE PERSISTENCE IN DEEP CONVECTION, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVEL-
OPMENT 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
241400Z1.//

REMARKS:
232100Z8 POSITION NEAR 16.2S9 109.2E2.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 13S (TIM), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 455 NM
NORTHWEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 11
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
231730Z6 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY
IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 35 AND 45 KNOTS.
RECENT MICROWAVE IMAGERY REVEALS DEEPENING CONVECTION OVER A WELL
DEVELOPED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). TC 13S IS FORECAST
TO TRACK SOUTHWESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A LOW
TO MID LEVEL ANTICYCLONE ANCHORED TO THE SOUTHEAST OF THE SYSTEM.
THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY STEADILY IN A FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT OF LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND GOOD POLEWARD OUTFLOW.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 231800Z4 IS 08 FEET. THIS WARNING

REMARKS:
240900Z5 POSITION NEAR 16.2S9 107.8E6.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 13S (TIM), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 500 NM NORTH-
WEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 05 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 240530Z4 MULTI-
SPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATEL-
LITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 35 KNOTS FROM ALL FIXING AGEN-
CIES. RECENT ANIMATED ENHANCED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY REVEALS DEEP CONVECTION
IS CYCLING, AND MULTISPECTRAL IMAGERY SHOWS THE SYSTEM HAS BECOME
SOMEWHAT QUASISTATIONARY. TC 13S IS EXPECTED TO MAINTAIN A GENERAL
SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE INTENSITY WILL
REMAIN STAGNANT AS INCREASED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR OFFSETS THE SURFACE
INFLOW. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 240600Z2 IS 12 FEET.
