REMARKS:
211500Z POSITION NEAR 10.9S 87.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (NONAME), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 525 NM
WEST OF THE COCOS ISLANDS, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 13
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT MULTISPECTRAL AND WATER
VAPOR SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOW DEEP CONVECTION FLARING OVER A
TIGHTENING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. THE STORM IS TRACKING
ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN EXTENSION OF A BROAD SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
ANCHORED OVER WESTERN AUSTRALIA. THIS RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO
REMAIN THE DOMINANT STEERING INFLUENCE THROUGH TAU 48, ALLOWING
THE SYSTEM TO TAKE A GENERALLY SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK. THE STORM WILL
INTENSIFY SLOWLY THROUGH TAU 36 IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF LESS THAN
OPTIMAL VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND GOOD EQUATORWARD DIFFLUENCE ALOFT.
AFTER TAU 36, DECREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND INCREASING POLE-
WARD OUTFLOW WILL ALLOW FOR MORE RAPID INTENSIFICATION. THIS

REMARKS:
220300Z POSITION NEAR 11.3S 84.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (NONAME), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 785 NM
WEST-SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE SYSTEM HAS MAINTAINED MINIMUM TROPICAL
CYCLONE INTENSITY OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. A 212026Z AMSU MICROWAVE
PASS INDICATES CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING FROM THE SOUTHERN TO NORTH-
WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. A BRANCH OF THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) ANCHORED OVER WESTERN AUSTRALIA IS THE CURRENT
STEERING MECHANISM FOR TC 16S. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY REVEALS A
DEVELOPING UPPER LEVEL LOW NEAR 85E, AND THE DYNAMIC AIDS ARE IN GOOD
AGREEMENT IN FORECASTING THIS LOW TO DEEPEN AND BREAK DOWN THE STR
SOUTH OF Tc 16S BETWEEN TAU 36 AND 48. THIS BREAK IN THE STR WILL
INDUCE A POLEWARD TURN AND ADDITIONALLY ENHANCE POLEWARD OUTFLOW AT
THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. THUS, THE SYSTEM WILL DEVELOP SLOWLY
THROUGH TAU 24, AND THEN WILL BEGIN TO INTENSIFY AT A CLIMATOLOGICAL
RATE AS POLEWARD OUTFLOW INCREASES. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT
AT 220000Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 221500Z AND 230300Z. REFER TO
TROPICAL CYCLONE  14S (FAVIO) WARNINGS (WTXS31 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-
HOURLY UPDATES. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE  15S (GAMEDE) WARNINGS
(WTXS32 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES.//

REMARKS:
230300Z POSITION NEAR 12.9S 82.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (NONAME) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 660 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER
THE LAST SIX HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED IMAGERY AND A
230009Z TRMM PASS INDICATE CONVECTION IS FINALLY BEGINNING TO CONSOL-
IDATE OVER THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER WHICH WAS PREVIOUSLY
PARTIALLY EXPOSED. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS REVEALS A MIDLATITUDE TROUGH
ENHANCING POLEWARD OUTFLOW SOUTHEAST OF THE STORM. THIS OUTFLOW
CHANNEL WILL PERSIST THROUGH TAU 48, CAUSING TC 16S TO INTENSIFY AT A
CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE. THE SYSTEM IS TRACKING ON THE NORTHWESTERN PER-
IPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) BRANCH ANCHORED OVER WESTERN
AUSTRALIA. A DEEPENING TROUGH WEST OF THE SYSTEM HAS CREATED A BREAK
IN THE STR, CAUSING A MORE POLEWARD TURN FOR TC 16S. THE SYSTEM WILL
CONTINUE TO TRACK SOUTH TO SOUTHWESTWARD TOWARD THE RIDGE AXIS
THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS ARE IN GOOD
AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
230000Z IS 15 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 231500Z AND 240300Z. REFER TO
TROPICAL CYCLONE  14S (FAVIO) WARNINGS (WTXS31 PGTW) FOR THE FINAL
WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES. REFER TO
TROPICAL CYCLONE 15S (GAMEDE) WARNINGS (WTXS32 PGTW)

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (HUMBA) LOCATED NEAR 13.6S 81.2E
APPROXIMATELY 640 NM SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED
MULTISPECTRAL IMAGERY AND A 230829Z AMSRE MICROWAVE IMAGE INDICATE
CONVECTION HAS FULLY WRAPPED AROUND THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER.
TC 16S HAS INTENSIFIED AT A CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE OVER THE LAST 12
HOURS DUE TO GOOD EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. BEGINNING AT TAU 24, THE
EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL WILL WEAKEN WHILE THE CURRENTLY WEAK
POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL WILL STRENGTHEN SLIGHTLY. OVERALL THIS
SCENARIO WILL RESULT IN A LESS THAN CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE OF INTENS-
IFICATION AFTER TAU 24. THE SYSTEM IS TRACKING ON THE NORTHWESTERN
PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) ANCHORED OVER WESTERN
AUSTRALIA. THE SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD
TOWARD THE RIDGE AXIS THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD.  THE AVAILABLE
DYNAMIC AIDS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. MAXIMUM SIG-

REMARKS:
241500Z POSITION NEAR 16.7S 79.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (HUMBA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 680 NM
SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 08
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. TC 16S IS TRACKING GENERALLY SOUTH-
WARD ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AN-
CHORED WEST OF AUSTRALIA. THIS MOTION IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD, WITH A SLIGHT INCREASE IN FORWARD
TRACK SPEED AFTER TAU 24 AS A DEVELOPING TROUGH TO THE SOUTHWEST
BEGINS TO INTERACT WITH THE SYSTEM. THIS DEVELOPING TROUGH IS
ALREADY BEGINNING TO IMPINGE ON THE SOUTHWESTERN QUADRANT OF THE
SYSTEM, REDUCING UPPER LEVEL OUTFLOW AND INCREASING VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR NEAR STORM CENTER. GOOD EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW AND SUFFICIENT
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO OFFSET THESE NEGATIVE
EFFECTS AND ALLOW THE STORM TO MAINTAIN INTENSITY THROUGH TAU 24.
THEREAFTER, INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH THE
FOREMENTIONED TROUGH AND DECREASING SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE
EXPECTED TO INDUCE BOTH WEAKENING AND, BY TAU 48, THE FIRST PHASE
OF EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
241200Z IS 23 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 250300Z AND 251500Z. REFER
TO TROPICAL CYCLONE  15S (GAMEDE) WARNINGS (WTXS32 PGTW) FOR
TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES.//

BEYOND THIS TIME, THE SYSTEM WILL MOVE POLEWARD OF THE RIDGE AXIS

INTERACTS WITH THE SYSTEM. THIS TROUGH CONTINUES TO IMPINGE ON THE

12 AND WILL THEN BEGIN TO WEAKEN DUE TO INCREASING VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH THE AFOREMENTIONED TROUGH AND DECREASING SEA
