MSGID/GENADMIN/NAVPACMETOCCEN PEARL HARBOR HI/JTWC//
SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT/072021ZJAN2006//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
120 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 14.5S 122.4E TO 17.5S 119.2E
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 IM­
AGERY AT 071730Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 14.7S 122.3E.  THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT
09 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: AN AREA OF CONVECTION NEAR 14.7S 122.3E, APPROXIMATELY
410 NM NORTH-NORTHEAST OF PORT HEDLAND, AUSTRALIA, HAS PERSISTED
OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGE-
RY INDICATE DEEP CONVECTION OVER A WELL DEFINED LOW LEVEL CIRC-
ULATION CENTER HAS INCREASED SIGNIFICANTLY. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS
SHOWS THAT THE SYSTEM HAS GOOD WESTWARD AND EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW AND
A LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ENVIRONMENT. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE 
WINDS ARE ESTIMATED TO BE 30 TO 35 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE
IS ESTIMATED TO BE 1000 MB. DUE TO INCREASED DEEP CONVECTION AND A
FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 
HOURS IS GOOD.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
