SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT/190752ZMAR2006//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
190 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 15.6S 164.8E TO 18.5S 158.8E
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 190530Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 15.7S 164.4E. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 17
KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: AN AREA OF CONVECTION NEAR 15.7S 164.4E, APPROXIMATELY
415 NM NORTH-NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS PERSISTED
OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY REVEALS INCREASING DEEP CONVECTION BECOMING SUPERPOSED WITH
A LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS IND-
ICATES THE AREA IS AN ENVIRONMENT OF DECREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
WITH GOOD EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE
ESTIMATED TO BE 30 TO 35 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS EST-
IMATED TO BE NEAR 1001 MB. DUE TO AN IMPROVING ENVIRONMENT AND IN-
CREASED CONVECTION, 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
200800Z.

REMARKS:
191500Z POSITION NEAR 16.2S 162.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18P (WATI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 420 NM
NORTH-NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA HAS TRACKED WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 13 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. TC 18P IS
UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE NORTHEASTERN EXTENT OF A
LARGE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. TC 18P WILL TRACK IN A
WEST-SOUTHWESTERLY DIRECTION THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD.
DUE TO ITS ORIENTATION WITH THE STEERING RIDGE, OUTFLOW IS ONLY
FAVORABLE IN THE EQUATORWARD DIRECTION. THIS LACK OF OUTFLOW
AND AN INCREASINGLY UNFAVORABLE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ENVIRONMENT
WILL LIMIT THE DEVELOPMENT OF TC 18P. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES
AND CANCELS REF A, NAVPACMETOCCEN 190752Z MAR 06 TROPICAL
CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT (WTPS21 PGTW 190800). MAXIMUM SIGNIF-
ICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 191200Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
200300Z AND 201500Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 17P (LARRY)

REMARKS:
200900Z POSITION NEAR 17.8S 158.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18P (WATI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 750 NM EAST
OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 14 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. TC 18P REMAINS ON THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF A
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH AND WILL TRACK IN A WEST-SOUTHWESTERLY
DIRECTION THROUGH TAU 24. AFTERWARDS, THE SYSTEM WILL SLOW, TURN
SOUTHWARD, AND EVENTUALLY ACCELERATE TO THE SOUTHEAST AS THE MID-
LATITUDE WESTERLIES MOVE EQUATORWARD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT
AT 200600Z IS 20 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 201500Z, 202100Z, 210300Z AND
210900Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 17P (LARRY) WARNINGS (WTPS31 PGTW
200900) FOR THE FINAL WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM.//

REMARKS:
201500Z POSITION NEAR 18.1S 157.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18P (WATI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 680 NM EAST
OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 12 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. TC 18P IS CURRENTLY UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH, WHICH WILL STEER THE SYSTEM TO THE
WEST-SOUTHWEST OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS. A DEEPENING MIDLATITUDE
TROUGH WILL WEAKEN THE RIDGE PAST TAU 24 AND CAUSE A FULL EXTRA-
TROPICAL TRANSITION BY TAU 72. WHILE THE SYSTEM WILL REMAIN IN A
LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ENVIRONMENT FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS, POOR UPPER
LEVEL OUTFLOW WILL LIMIT INTENSIFICATION. AFTER TAU 24, VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR WILL INCREASE, RESULTING IN A WEAKENING TREND THROUGH THE RE-
MAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 201200Z IS 20 FEET.

REMARKS:
210300Z POSITION NEAR 17.6S 155.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18P (WATI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 550 NM EAST
OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 
SIX HOURS. TC 18P IS CURRENTLY UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A SUBTROPICAL 
RIDGE TO THE SOUTH, WHICH WILL CONTINUE TO STEER THE SYSTEM TOWARD 
THE WEST OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS. A DEEPENING MIDLATITUDE TROUGH WILL 
WEAKEN THIS STEERING RIDGE AND INDUCE A POLEWARD TURN BY 24 HRS. THE 
SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY AS IT REMAINS IN A LOW VERTICAL WIND 
SHEAR ENVIRONMENT AND UPPER LEVEL OUTFLOW IMPROVES. TC 18P WILL BEGIN
TO INTERACT WITH THE MIDLATITUDE FLOW AND START EXTRATROPICAL TRAN-
SITION BY THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE 
HEIGHT AT 210000Z IS 28 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 210900Z, 211500Z, 
212100Z AND 220300Z.//

REMARKS:
210900Z POSITION NEAR 18.0S 154.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18P (WATI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 525 NM EAST
OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED ENHANCED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY
REVEALS AN INCREASE IN OUTFLOW IN THE EASTERN SEMICIRCLE, HOWEVER
OUTFLOW REMAINS INHIBITED IN THE WESTERN SEMICIRCLE. TC 18P IS BEING
STEERED BY AN ANTICYCLONE SITUATED OVER THE GREAT BARRIER REEF AND
AN ANTICYCLONE SITUATED OVER VANUATU. THE SHARED INFLUENCE OF THESE
TWO PRESSURE SYSTEMS HAS KEPT TC 18P ON A GENERAL WESTWARD TRACK.
DURING THE NEXT 36 HOURS, THE WESTERN ANTICYCLONE WILL BEGIN TO WEA-
KEN AND THE EASTERN ANTICYCLONE WILL REORIENT NORTHWEST-SOUTHEAST IN
RESPONSE TO A DIGGING MAJOR SHORTWAVE TROUGH EQUATORWARD OF NEW
ZEALAND. THIS CHANGE IN RIDGE ORIENTATION WILL MODIFY THE STEERING
FLOW, CAUSING A RECURVATURE. ONCE TC 18P MOVES OUT OF THE TURN, IT
WILL BEGIN TO ACCELERATE TO THE SOUTHEAST. THE INTENSITY OF TC 18P
WILL INCREASE THROUGH THE NEXT 36 HOURS AS IT REMAINS UNDER FAVOR-
ABLE CONDITIONS, HOWEVER ONCE IT BEGINS TRACKING POLEWARD, IT WILL
BEGIN TO WEAKEN DUE TO INCREASED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 210600Z IS 28 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
211500Z, 212100Z, 220300Z AND 220900Z.//

REMARKS:
211500Z POSITION NEAR 17.7S 154.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18P (WATI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 495 NM EAST
OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 05 KNOTS OVER THE PAST
SIX HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED ENHANCED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY REVEALS A
SLIGHT WOBBLE IN THE DEEP CONVECTION AROUND THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER, AND THE CURRENT POSITION HAS TRACKED SLIGHTLY EQUATORWARD.
TWO ANTICYCLONES ARE CONTROLLING THE STEERING FLOW OF TC 18P. ONE IS
SITUATED EAST OF TC 18P, OVER VANUATU, WHILE A SMALLER ANTICYCLONE IS
LOCATED OVER NORTHEAST AUSTRALIA. DURING THE NEXT 36 HOURS, TC 18P
WILL TRACK INTO A WEAKER STEERING ENVIRONMENT AS THE WESTERN ANTI-
CYCLONE BECOMES MORE DIFFUSE AND THE EASTERN ANTICYCLONE REORIENTS
ALONG A NORTHWEST-SOUTHEAST AXIS. AFTER TAU 36, THE SYSTEM SHOULD
BEGIN TRACKING SOUTHEASTWARD WITH THE DEEP LAYER MEAN FLOW. THE
INTENSITY WILL GRADUALLY INCREASE OVER THE NEXT 24 TO 48 HOURS, THEN
DECREASE AS TC 18P MOVES INTO AN ENVIRONMENT OF INCREASED VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 211200Z IS 29 FEET.
NEXT WARNINGS AT 212100Z, 220300Z, 220900Z AND 221500Z.//

REMARKS:
220300Z POSITION NEAR 17.7S 153.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18P (WATI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 460 NM
EAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS BECOME QUASI-STATIONARY OVER 
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
DEPICTS A SYMMETRIC DEEP CONVECTIVE MASS DIRECTLY OVER THE LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. TC 18P IS FORECAST TO BEGIN A SLOW
POLEWARD TRACK ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A BUILDING MID-LEVEL
RIDGE TO THE EAST. ADDITIONAL INTENSIFICATION IS LIKELY EARLY
IN THE FORECAST PERIOD IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF LOW VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR AND IMPROVING UPPER LEVEL OUTFLOW. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 220000Z IS 32 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 220900Z, 221500Z,
222100Z, AND 230300Z.//

REMARKS:
220900Z POSITION NEAR 18.0S 153.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18P (WATI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 460 NM EAST
OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 03 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED ENHANCED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY
REVEALS IMPROVED RADIAL OUTFLOW IN ALL QUADRANTS WITH SIGNIFICANT
OUTFLOW IN THE EASTERN SEMICIRCLE. THE MOVEMENT OF TC 18P HAS BECOME
QUASISTATIONARY DUE TO A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT. A RIDGE SITUATED
OVER VANUATU AND FIJI WILL BECOME THE DOMINANT STEERING MECHANISM AND
CAUSE THE SYSTEM TO BEGIN TRACKING SOUTHEASTWARD WITHIN THE NEXT 12
TO 24 HOURS. THE INTENSITY OF TC 18P WILL INCREASE AS OUTFLOW
IMPROVES, HOWEVER STORM INTENSITY IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN AS THE SYSTEM
TRACKS POLEWARD INTO HIGHER VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND BEGINS EXTRA-
TROPICAL TRANSITION. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 220600Z IS 36
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 221500Z, 222100Z, 230300Z AND 230900Z.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18P (WATI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 560 NM NORTH
OF BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA, REMAINED QUASI-STATIONARY OVER THE PAST SIX
HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED ENHANCED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATES THE
LOSS OF THE EMBEDDED CENTER AND DECREASED CONVECTIVE ORGANIZATION DUE
TO INCREASED NORTHWESTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. AS A TROUGH DEEPENS
INTO THE CORAL SEA, TC 18P WILL TRACK TO THE SOUTH-SOUTHEAST AND
BEGIN EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION BY THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 221800Z IS 38 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS
