MSGID/GENADMIN/NAVPACMETOCCEN PEARL HARBOR HI//
SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
175 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 12.2S 176.6W TO 14.7S 177.6E
WITHIN THE NEXT 06 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 040130Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 12.5S 177.2W. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 12.6S
176.6W, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 12.5S 177.2W, APPROXIMATELY 440 NM NORTH-
EAST OF NADI, FIJI. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A
032054Z AMSU IMAGE SHOW PERSISTENT DEEP CONVECTION AND IMPROVING CONS-
OLIDATION NEAR A WELL-DEFINED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER OVER THE
LAST 12 HOURS. THE DISTURBANCE LIES DIRECTLY UNDER AN UPPER LEVEL ANT-
ICYCLONE, WHICH IS PROVIDING EXCELLENT OUTFLOW ALOFT AND LIMITING THE
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT
25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR
1005 MB. 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
050230Z.//

REMARKS:
050300Z POSITION NEAR 12.2S 178.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 05P (NONAME), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 330 NM
NORTH-NORTHEAST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON THE LOWER END
OF DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 35 KNOTS (PGTW, KNES) TO 45
KNOTS (ABRF). THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON A WELL-DEFINED
LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER AS EVIDENT IN RECENT MICROWAVE AND
ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. TC 05P IS TRACKING ALONG
THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE LOW-LEVEL SUB-TROPICAL STEERING
RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. GENERAL WESTWARD MOTION IS EXPECTED TO
CONTINUE OVER THE NEXT 12-24 HOURS, WITH THE SYSTEM BEGINNING A
TURN TO THE SOUTH NEAR TAU 24 AS THE STORM ENCOUNTERS A TROUGH
ADVANCING FROM THE WEST. AFTER TAU 24 THE STORM WILL SLOW AND
CONTINUE TO RECURVE AS IT COMES UNDER INCREASING INFLUENCE FROM
THE TROUGH BEFORE COMING TO A SOUTHEASTERLY HEADING NEAR TAU 48.
NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE WAS LIMITED DUE TO THE WEAK NATURE OF THE
STORM BUT IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE FORECAST TRACK AND SYNOPTIC
SITUATION. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS REF A, NAVPACMETOCCEN
040221Z DEC 07 TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT (WTPS21 PGTW
040230). MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 050000Z IS 8 FEET.

REMARKS:
051500Z POSITION NEAR 12.8S 176.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 05P (DAMAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 295 NM NORTH
OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 11 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST 06 HOURS. TC 05P IS TRACKING ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY
OF THE LOW- TO MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. THE
SYSTEM HAS INTENSIFIED SLOWLY OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS, AND IS EXPECTED
TO CONTINUE INTENSIFYING THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. TC 05P WILL
CONTINUE TO TRACK GENERALLY SOUTHWESTWARD THROUGH TAU 24 BEFORE
TURNING TO THE SOUTHEAST UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF AN APPROACHING MID-
LATITUDE TROUGH. THE MID-LATITUDE TROUGH WILL WEAKEN THE SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE BETWEEN TAU 12 AND TAU 24, CAUSING THE SYSTEM TO SLOW AS IT
ENTERS A PERIOD OF WEAK STEERING BEFORE TURNING TO THE SOUTHEAST.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 051200Z IS 10 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS
AT 060300Z AND 061500Z.//

REMARKS:
060300Z POSITION NEAR 15.0S 175.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 05P (DAMAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 190 NM NORTH
OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST 06 HOURS. OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS, TC 05P HAS SLOWED SLIGHTLY AND
TURNED MORE SOUTHWARD AS IT TRACKED ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY
OF THE MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN POS-
ITIONING WHICH WAS BASED ON TIGHTLY-CURVED BANDING AND SEVERAL MICRO-
WAVE IMAGES SHOWING A WELL-DEFINED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER AT
37 GHZ. TC 05P HAS CONTINUED TO INTENSIFY DUE TO THE EXCELLENT DUAL
CHANNEL OUTFLOW EVIDENT IN ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY AS WELL AS
FAVORABLE SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (SST) AND OCEAN HEAT CONTENT (OHC).
THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES OF 55 KNOTS FROM
ALL AVAILABLE AGENCIES. TC 05P IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING ALONG
THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE MID-LEVEL RIDGE THROUGH TAU 24 BUT
WILL GRADUALLY TURN SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AND ACCELERATE WITHIN EN-
HANCED POLEWARD FLOW BETWEEN THE APPROACHING DEEP TROUGH AND THE
RIDGE TO THE EAST. OVERALL, THE DYNAMIC AIDS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT
WITH THIS TRACK BUT DIVERGE SLIGHTLY AFTER TAU 48 DUE TO THE WEAK-
ENING OF THE SYSTEM WITHIN AN INCREASINGLY UNFAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT
OF HIGHER VERTICAL WIND SHEAR, AND LOWER SST/OHC. MAXIMUM SIGNIF-
ICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 060000Z IS 11 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 061500Z
AND 070300Z.//

REMARKS:
061500Z POSITION NEAR 15.6S 176.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 05P (DAMAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 130 NM NORTH-
NORTHWEST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST 06 HOURS. OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS, TC 05P HAS SLOWED TURNED SOUTH-
EASTWARD AS IT RECURVED ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE MID-LEVEL
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. DURING THIS TIME, TC 05P HAS SIGNIFICANTLY INTENSIFIED
AND AN EYE FEATURE DEVELOPED IN ENHANCED INFRARED IMAGERY GIVING A HIGH
CONFIDENCE IN POSITIONING. THE INTENSIFICATION IS DUE TO THE EXCELLENT
DUAL-CHANNEL OUTFLOW EVIDENT IN ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY AS WELL AS
FAVORABLE SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (SST) AND OCEAN HEAT CONTENT (OHC).
THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES OF 65 TO 75 KNOTS FROM
ALL AVAILABLE AGENCIES. TC 05P IS FORECAST TO SLIGHTLY INTENSIFY AS IT
CONTINUES TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE MID-LEVEL RIDGE
THROUGH TAU 24. AFTER TAU 24, 05P WILL GRADUALLY TURN SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD
AND SLIGHTLY ACCELERATE WITHIN ENHANCED POLEWARD FLOW BETWEEN THE APPROACHING
DEEP TROUGH AND THE RIDGE TO THE EAST. OVERALL, THE DYNAMIC AIDS CONTINUE TO
REMAIN IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS TRACK BUT STILL DIVERGE SLIGHTLY AFTER TAU
48 DUE TO THE WEAKENING OF THE SYSTEM WITHIN AN INCREASINGLY UNFAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT OF HIGHER VERTICAL WIND SHEAR, LAND INTERACTION, AND LOWER SST
AND OHC. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 061200Z IS 18 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS
AT 070300Z AND 071500Z.//

REMARKS:
062100Z POSITION NEAR 15.6S 177.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 05P (DAMAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 120 NM NORTH
OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED EASTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS.
TC 05P HAS UNDERGONE A PERIOD OF EXPLOSIVE DEEPENING SUPPORTED BY HIGH
OCEAN HEAT CONTENT AND STRONG UPPER LEVEL OUTFLOW DURING THE PAST 06
HOURS. DVORAK SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM REPORTING AGENCIES
RANGE FROM 5.0/5.0 (PHFO) TO 6.0/6.0 (PGTW) AND THE INITIAL INTENSITY
IS SET ACCORDINGLY AT 100 KNOTS. ALTHOUGH THE INTENSITY FORECAST HAS
BEEN UPDATED TO REFLECT RECENT IMPROVEMENTS IN STORM STRUCTURE, TRACK
FORECAST REASONING HAS NOT CHANGED. TC 05P WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK ALONG
THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AHEAD OF AN APPROACH-
ING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH CURRENTLY LOCATED SOUTHWEST OF THE STORM. THE
CONTINUING INFLUENCES OF GOOD OUTFLOW ALOFT AND WARM WATER BELOW WILL
ALLOW THE STORM TO FURTHER INTENSIFY PRIOR TO MAKING LANDFALL ON VANUA
LEVU ISLAND BETWEEN TAU 12 AND TAU 24. THEREAFTER, LAND INTERACTION AND
DECREASING OCEAN HEAT CONTENT ARE EXPECTED TO INDUCE STRUCTURAL CHANGES
AND SLOW WEAKENING THROUGH TAU 36. MORE RAPID WEAKENING SHOULD OCCUR
BETWEEN TAU 36 AND TAU 48 AS VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH THE
APPROACHING TROUGH INCREASES. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
061800Z IS 25 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 070900Z AND 072100Z.//

070900Z POSITION NEAR 15.9S 178.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 05P (DAMAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 130 NM NORTH-
EAST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED EASTWARD AT 07 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06
HOURS. AFTER UNDER GOING A PERIOD OF EXPLOSIVE DEEPENING, THE EYE HAS
BECOME MORE RAGGED AND COVERED BY CIRRUS CLOUDS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS.
WITH A DVORAK SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATE OF 5.5 FROM PGTW, THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS SET ACCORDINGLY AT 105 KNOTS. ALTHOUGH THE INTENSITY FORECAST
HAS BEEN UPDATED TO REFLECT RECENT EROSION IN THE STORM STRUCTURE, TRACK
FORECAST REASONING HAS NOT CHANGED. TC 05P WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK ALONG
THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING
MID-LATITUDE TROUGH CURRENTLY LOCATED SOUTHWEST OF THE STORM. THE CON-
TINUING INFLUENCE OF GOOD OUTFLOW ALOFT WILL ALLOW THE STORM TO MAINTAIN
MUCH OF THE INTENSITY AS IT MAKES LANDFALL ON EASTERN VANUA LEVU ISLAND
PRIOR TO TAU 12. THEREAFTER, LAND INTERACTION AND DECREASING OCEAN HEAT
CONTENT ARE EXPECTED TO INDUCE STRUCTURAL CHANGES AND SLOW WEAKENING
THROUGH TAU 48. OVERALL, MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH
CURRENT FORECAST REASONING. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 070600Z
IS 26 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 072100Z AND 080900Z.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 05P (DAMAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 240 NM EAST-
NORTHEAST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED EASTWARD AT 12 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST 06 HOURS. TC 05P HAS BEGUN TO WEAKEN IN RESPONSE TO INCREASING
WESTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH AN APPROACHING MID-
ATITUDE TROUGH TO THE SOUTHWEST. THE SYSTEM IS TRACKING EASTWARD
UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE EXTENSION TO
THE NORTH OF THE STORM. HOWEVER, AS THE MID-LATITUDE TROUGH TO THE
SOUTHWEST MOVES CLOSER TO TC 05P, THE STEERING PATTERN IS EXPECTED
TO REORIENT AND INDUCE AN INCREASINGLY POLEWARD STORM TRACK THROUGH
THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE STORM WILL STEADILY WEAKEN AS INCREASING
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND DECREASING SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURATURES
ERODE THE STORM STRUCTURE. EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION SHOULD BEGIN
AROUND TAU 48 AS THE SYSTEM BEGINS TO EMBED WITHIN THE APPROACHING
MID-LATITUDE TROUGH. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 071800Z IS

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 05P (DAMAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 285 NM
EAST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. INCREASING NORTHWESTERLY VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH THE STRONG UPPER LEVEL FLOW AHEAD OF AN
APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH HAS LEFT THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULA-
TION OF TC 05P FULLY EXPOSED. THE STORM HAS BEEN TRACKING ALONG
THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE EXTEN-
SION TO THE NORTH. HOWEVER, A SECOND RIDGE TO THE SOUTH OF THE
STORM IS EXPECTED TO EXERT AN INCREASING INFLUENCE ON STORM
MOTION, PUSHING THE SYSTEM SOUTHWESTWARD AHEAD OF THE AFOREMEN-

TO TRANSITION INTO AN EXTRATROPICAL LOW PRESSURE AREA AS IT
BECOMES EMBEDDED WITHIN THIS TROUGH AFTER TAU 24. BECAUSE
STRONG VERTICAL WIND SHEAR IS EXPECTED TO PERSIST, THE SYSTEM
