SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT 061751Z FEB 05//
REF/A/RMG/NAVPACMETOCCEN PEARL HARBOR HI/051751Z FEB 05//
AMPN/REF A IS A TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT (WTXS21
/PGTW 051800)//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN A
120 NM RADIUS OF 16.5S2 117.1E0 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 061430Z4 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER
IS LOCATED NEAR 16.1S8 116.8E6. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING EASTWARD AT 02
KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 15.5S1
116.9E7 IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 16.1S8 116.8E6, APPROXIMATELY 395 NM
NORTH-NORTHEAST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA. RECENT ANIMATED ENHANCED
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS CONTINUED CYCLING DEEP CONVECTION,
AND ENHANCED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS THE PRESENCE OF A WEAK POLE-
WARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL. AT 060949Z8, A QUIKSCAT PASS DEPICTS A WELL
ESTABLISHED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC), AND RECENT MICROWAVE
IMAGERY SUGGESTS THE LLCC IS PARTIALLY DECOUPLED FROM THE REGION OF
DEEP CONVECTION. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE LLCC IS UNDER-
NEATH THE AXIS OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF LOW
TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND VERY WEAK STEERING FLOW. MAXIMUM
SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 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 REMAINS GOOD. THIS SUPERSEDES REF A.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
071800Z6.//

REMARKS:
070300Z0 POSITION NEAR 16.5S2 116.3E1.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 17S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 370 NM NORTH-
NORTHEAST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT
03 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON
062330Z4 MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS
BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 35 AND 45 KNOTS.
RECENT ANIMATED ENHANCED WATER VAPOR SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS AN
INCREASE IN DEEP CONVECTION AS WELL AS SUSTAINED RADIAL OUTFLOW FROM
THE WESTERN SEMICIRCLE. A 062218Z9 SSMI MICROWAVE PASS SHOWS A PAR-
TIALLY EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER WITH DEEP CONVECTION
CONFINED PRIMARILY TO THE SOUTHWESTERN QUADRANT. DURING THE NEXT 36
HOURS, TC 17S WILL RESIDE IN A VERY WEEK STEERING ENVIRONMENT AND
IS EXPECTED TO SLOWLY MIGRATE WESTWARD. BY TAU 48, THE SYSTEM WILL
BEGIN TO TRACK ALONG THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF A DEVELOPING SUBTRO-
PICAL RIDGE. THE INTENSITY OF TC 17S WILL RISE SLOWLY AS NO DECENT
OUTFLOW CHANNEL IS FORECAST TO ESTABLISH. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 070000Z7 IS 11 FEET. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 17S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 260 NM
NORTHWEST OF PORT HEDLAND, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-
WESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING
POSITION IS BASED ON 071130Z2 ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE

WITH A DECREASE IN INTENSITY BY TAU 36. TC 17S IS CURRENTLY
LOCATED IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
WHICH IS HAMPERING FURTHER DEVELOPMENT. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 17S (VIVIENNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 310
NM NORTH-NORTHWEST OF PORT HEDLAND, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED NORTH-
WARD AT 01 KNOT OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS

IMAGERY SHOWS THAT THE DEEP CONVECTION HAS WEAKENED SIGNIFICANTLY
OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO DRIFT SLOWLY
NORTHWARD WITHIN A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT AND WEAKEN SLOWLY DUE
TO MARGINAL VERTICAL WIND SHEAR CONDITIONS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 081200Z1 IS 15 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.//
