SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT/272051ZJAN2006//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
125 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 17.9S 148.8E TO 18.5S 153.2E
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 25 TO 30 KNOTS. METSAT IM
AGERY AT 271800Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 17.9S 149.0E. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING EAST-NORTHEASTWARD AT 05
KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 18.0S
148.5E IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 17.9S 149.0E, APPROXIMATELY 195 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA. ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY CONTINUES TO DEPICT INCREASED CONVECTION NEAR A WELL
DEFINED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES THAT THE SYSTEM IS LOCATED NEAR A RIDGE AXIS WITH LOW
TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND FAVORABLE DIVERGENCE ALOFT.
ADDITIONALLY 850 MB VORTICITY VALUES HAVE INCREASED OVER THE LAST
12 HOURS. MAXIMUM SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS.
MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 998 MB. GIVEN
THE INCREASE IN CONVECTION AND A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT FOR FUR-
THER INTENSIFICATION, 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 282100Z.//

REMARKS:
280300Z POSITION NEAR 17.4S 149.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10P (JIM), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 220 NM
EAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-NORTHEASTWARD AT 
05 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED 
SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS AN INCREASE IN DEEP CONVECTION NEAR
THE CYCLONE CENTER. TC 10P IS TRACKING EASTWARD ON THE SOUTHERN
PERIPHERY OF A MID-LEVEL RIDGE AXIS TO ITS NORTH. THE OVERALL 
STORM ENVIRONMENT IS FAVORABLE FOR ADDITIONAL INTENSIFICATION
THROUGH THE 36 HOUR FORECAST POINT. HOWEVER, THE CYCLONE SHOULD
BEGIN TO WEAKEN AFTER 48 HOURS AS IT WILL INCREASE ITS FORWARD
SPEED AND ENCOUNTER HIGHER VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. THIS WARNING
SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS REF A, NAVPACMETOCCEN 272051Z JAN 06

SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 280000Z IS 14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT

REMARKS:
291500Z POSITION NEAR 16.4S 157.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10P (JIM), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 660 NM WEST-
NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED EASTWARD AT 12 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY RE-
VEALS A REDEVELOPMENT OF DEEP CONVECTION AND IMPROVED RADIAL OUTFLOW.
TC 10P IS FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD TOWARD NEW CALEDONIA UNDER
THE SHARED INFLUENCE OF AN EQUATORIAL RIDGE AXIS AND SUBTROPICAL
UPPER LEVEL LOW. BY THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD, TC 10P WILL BEGIN
TO MERGE WITH THE MIDLATITUDE FLOW AND WEAKEN AS VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
INCREASES. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 291200Z IS 23 FEET.
NEXT WARNINGS AT 292100Z, 300300Z, 300900Z AND 301500Z.//

WEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED EASTWARD AT 15 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE STORM IS FORECAST TO TURN SOUTHEASTWARD

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10P (JIM), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 475 NM NORTH-
WEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT
19 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE STORM IS RAPIDLY TRACKING
SOUTHEASTWARD UNDER THE SHARED INFLUENCE OF AN EQUATORIAL RIDGE AXIS
NORTH OF THE SYSTEM AND A SUBTROPICAL UPPER LEVEL LOW SOUTH OF NEW
CALEDONIA. A 292111Z SSMIS PASS DEPICTS A NORTHWEST- TO SOUTHEAST-
ORIENTED BAROCLINIC ZONE JUST POLEWARD OF TC 09C. THE CYCLONE IS
FORECAST TO WEAKEN AS IT TRAVERSES LOWER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES
AND INTERACTS WITH THE AFOREMENTIONED BAROCLINIC ZONE. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 300000Z IS 18 FEET. THIS IS THE LAST SIX
HOUR WARNING INTERVAL FOR TC 10P. THE JOINT TYPHOON WARNING CENTER
WILL ISSUE TC 10P WARNINGS EVERY 12 HOURS HEREAFTER. NEXT WARNINGS
AT 301500Z AND 310300Z.//

301500Z POSITION NEAR 18.8S 164.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10P (JIM), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 290 NM NORTH-
WEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 18
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY
REVEALS IMPROVED CONVECTION AND A RELATIVELY SYMMETRIC CENTRAL DENSE
OVERCAST. RECENT MICROWAVE IMAGERY SUGGESTS THE CONVECTIVE PATTERN IS
BECOMING ELONGATED, MOST LIKELY DUE TO AN INCREASE IN FORWARD SPEED
AND A REGION OF STRONGER WINDS TO THE SOUTHWEST. DURING THE NEXT 48
HOURS, TC 10P WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD AS IT IS STEERED
BY A SUBTROPICAL UPPER LEVEL LOW POLEWARD OF NEW CALEDONIA. BY TAU 48
THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO BEGIN EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION AS THE LOW
FILLS AND MERGES WITH THE MIDLATITUDE WESTERLY FLOW. THE INTENSITY
OF TC 10P WILL WEAKEN RAPIDLY AFTER TAU 24 DUE TO INCREASED VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR AND COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 301200Z IS 20 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 310300Z AND
311500Z.//

REMARKS:
310300Z POSITION NEAR 20.5S 167.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10P (JIM), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 135 NM NORTH
OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 19 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. TC 10P IS BEING STEERED TO THE SOUTHEAST
BY A NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTH. GUIDANCE SINCE THE PREVIOUS
WARNING HAS CHANGED, MOVING AWAY FROM AN EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION.
MODEL GUIDANCE SHOWS THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE WEST OF THE SYSTEM
OVER AUSTRALIA BUILDING EASTWARD IN RESPONSE TO A FASTER THAN EX-
PECTED FILLING OF AN UPPER LEVEL LOW SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM. THIS WILL
RESULT IN A RELAXATION OF THE MID LEVEL FLOW STEERING THE STORM, AND
SHOULD SLOW THE SYSTEM DOWN SIGNIFICANTLY. UKMET, NOGAPS, AND GFDN
ALL SHOW STRONG ENOUGH RIDGING BUILDING IN TO TURN THE STORM BACK
EQUATORWARD. COMPARISON OF MODEL FIELDS WITH SATELLITE WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY CONFIRMS A FAIR MODEL ANALYSIS IN THESE DYNAMIC AIDS. HOWEVER,
FORECAST CONFIDENCE IS LOW PAST 24 DUE TO POOR AGREEMENT WITH THE OTHER
AIDS. INTENSITY GUIDANCE IS ALSO MIXED. HOWEVER, LESS THAN FAVORABLE
OUTFLOW AND NON IDEAL SST SHOULD KEEP THE SYSTEM FROM INTENSIFYING,
ESPECIALLY ONCE THE SYSTEM SLOWS DOWN. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT
AT 310000Z IS 22 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 311500Z AND 010300Z.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10P (JIM), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 430 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 21
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE SYSTEM WILL BEGIN TO SLOW AS ITS

IS NOT EXPECTED TO MEET WARNING CRITERIA LONG ENOUGH TO BE STEERED
