SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT REISSUED 170151Z MAY 07//
REF/A/NAVPACMETOCCEN PEARL HARBOR HI/160151Z MAY 07//
AMPN/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 120 NM RADIUS OF 11.0S 156.1E WITHIN THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS.
AVAILABLE DATA DOES NOT JUSTIFY ISSUANCE OF NUMBERED TROPICAL CY-
CLONE WARNINGS AT THIS TIME.  WINDS IN THE AREA ARE ESTIMATED TO
BE 30 TO 35 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY AT 170000Z INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 11.0S 156.1E.  THE SYSTEM IS
MOVING WESTWARD AT 03 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 10.4S
157.3E IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 11.0S 156.1E, APPROXIMATELY 245NM WEST-
SOUTHWEST OF HONIARA, SOLOMON ISLANDS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS A DEFINED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC), HOWEVER CONVECTION HAS NOT CONSOLIDATED OVER THE
CENTER AND HAS REMAINED SPORADIC IN NATURE. DESPITE THIS
FACT, THE DISTURBANCE REMAINS IN A FAVORABLE REGION FOR DEVELOP-
MENT WITH AN ANTICYCLONE SITUATED JUST SOUTH OF THE DISTURBANCE
PROVIDING GOOD POLEWARD OUTFLOW AND LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR.
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 20 TO 25 KNOTS.
MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1002 MB. DUE TO
THE CONTINUED FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24
HOURS REMAINS GOOD. THIS SUPERSEDES REF A.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
180200Z.//

170900Z POSITION NEAR 11.0S 155.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 24P (PIERRE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 510 NM
EAST OF PORT MORESBY, PAPUA NEW GUINEA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 05
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS A CONSOLIDATING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC) WITH DEEP CONVECTION FLARING NEAR THE CENTER. THE
SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY TRACKING ALONG THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE ANCHORED TO THE SOUTH OVER THE CORAL SEA. THE
SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO TRACK SLOWLY WESTWARD THROUGH THE FORECAST
PERIOD. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS REF A, NAVPACMETOCCEN

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 24P (PIERRE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 455 NM
EAST OF PORT MORESBY, PAPUA NEW GUINEA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 07
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE STORM HAS REMAINED A MINIMAL TC

A REGION OF RELATIVELY COOLER AND DRIER AIR JUST SOUTH OF NEW
GUINEA. THIS ENVIRONMENT WILL INHIBIT INTENSIFICATION OF THE TC.

REMARKS:
180900Z POSITION NEAR 11.0S 152.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 24P (PIERRE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 350 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF PORT MORESBY, PAPUA NEW GUINEA, HAS TRACKED
WESTWARD AT 11 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE SYSTEM REMAINS
A MINIMAL TROPICAL CYCLONE, AND A 180308Z AMSR-E MICROWAVE
SATELLITE IMAGE DEPICTS DISORGANIZED DEEP CONVECTION ON THE
PERIPHERIES OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. THE STORM IS
EXPECTED TO CONTINUE ON A GENERALLY WESTWARD TRACK IN THE
LOW TO MID-LEVEL EASTERLY FLOW INDUCED BY SUBTROPICAL RIDGING TO
THE SOUTH. VERTICAL WIND SHEAR REMAINS LOW AND DIFFLUENCE ALOFT
IS EXPECTED TO IMPROVE AS A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH PASSING TO THE
SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM PROVIDES A POLEWARD OUTFLOW MECHANISM.
HOWEVER, DRIER AIR AND MARGINAL SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE
EXPECTED TO OFFSET GENERALLY FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL CONDITIONS
SUFFICIENTLY TO ALLOW ONLY MINIMAL INTENSIFICATION ALONG THE
FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 180600Z IS
15 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 182100Z AND 190900Z.//
