REMARKS:
240900Z POSITION NEAR 12.2S 84.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 04S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 790 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT
12 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. WHILE TC 04S IS IN AN EN-
VIRONMENT OF LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND HAS DECENT UPPER
LEVEL OUTFLOW, THE SYSTEM WILL BE INHIBITED FROM SIGNIFICANT
DEVELOPMENT DUE TO ITS HIGH SPEED OF MOVEMENT. A SOUTHWESTERLY
TRACK SHOULD CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD AS THE
SYSTEM IS STEERED BY THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTHEAST.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 240600Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT
WARNINGS AT 242100Z AND 250900Z.//

REMARKS:
242100Z POSITION NEAR 12.9S 81.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 04S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 660 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 15 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK WEST-
SOUTHWESTERLY ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS
CONVECTION LIMITED TO THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE TC. UPPER LEVEL
ANALYSIS REVEALS THIS CONVECTIVE PATTERN IS DUE TO MODERATE TO STRONG
EASTERLY SHEAR. THIS SHEAR ENVIRONMENT WILL SLOWLY ABATE OVER THE
FORECAST PERIOD ALLOWING THE TC TO INTENSIFY, BUT AT A LESS THAN
CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 241800Z IS 12
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 250900Z AND 252100Z.//

WANING DEEP CONVECTION WHICH IS DECOUPLED NEARLY 100 NM TO THE WEST
OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES
AN ENVIRONMENT OF MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. THIS UNFAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT IS FORECAST TO PERSIST AND THE SYSTEM WILL DISSIPATE
OVER WATER. 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. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT
