SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE
WITHIN 085 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 12.5S 80.6E TO 15.5S
78.3E 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 IMAGERY AT 032330Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER
IS LOCATED NEAR 12.8S 80.2E.  THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 12.2S
81.5E, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 12.8S 80.2E, APPROXIMATELY 560 NM
SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA. RECENT INFRARED AND WATER VAPOR IMAGERY
SHOW FLARING CONVECTION OVER A WELL DEFINED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC), WHICH WAS EVIDENT IN PREVIOUS MULTISPECTRAL IMAGERY.
A 040112Z TRMM MICROWAVE IMAGE DEPICTS CONVECTIVE BANDING BEGIN-
NING TO WRAP INTO THE LLCC. A 031300Z QUIKSCAT PASS CONFIRMS THIS
CIRCULATION CENTER AND DEPICTS AN AREA OF 20 TO 30 KNOT WINDS ON
THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE LLCC. THE CONVECTION HAS IMPROVED
OVER THE DEVELOPING LLCC, WHICH IS NOW LOCATED IN A NARROW REGION
OF LOW TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE
WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE
IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1000 MB. BASED ON THE IMPROVED CONVECTION,
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 050300Z.//

REMARKS:
041500Z POSITION NEAR 13.2S 80.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (NONAME) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 580 NM 
SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT METSAT IMAGERY INDICATES A WELL ORGA-
NIZED SYSTEM WITH CONVECTION DEVELOPING OVER THE LOW LEVEL CIRCU-
LATION CENTER (LLCC). THE CONVECTION HAS MADE IT DIFFICULT TO LOCATE
THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER AND HAS LOWERED THE CONFIDENCE IN
THE INITIAL POSITION. THE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT CONTINUES TO PROVIDE
FAVORABLE CONDITIONS FOR DEVELOPMENT WITH LOW VERTICAL SHEAR VALUES
AND GOOD DIVERGENCE ALOFT. THE SYSTEM IS UNDER A WEAK STEERING ENVI-
RONMENT FROM THE RIDGE TO THE NORTH WHICH WILL SLOWLY CAUSE THE STORM 
TO TRACK EASTWARD ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE STEERING RIDGE.
FAVORABLE OCEAN HEAT CONTENT AND OUTFLOW ALOFT WILL ALLOW TC 16S TO
CONTINUE TO STRENGTHEN THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE DYNAMIC
AIDS ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH BOTH THE TRACK AND INTENSITY FORECAST.

REMARKS:
050300Z POSITION NEAR 13.5S 80.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (NONAME) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 585 NM SOUTH-
EAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 03 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A 041955Z
AMSR-E IMAGE DEPICT IMPROVED CONSOLIDATION OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS WITH
DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING FROM THE EAST INTO THE NORTH
QUADRANT. THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT POSITION WHICH IS
BASED ON EXCELLENT CONVECTIVE BANDING AND A CLEAR LOW-LEVEL CIRC-
ULATION CENTER (LLCC) EVIDENT IN 36 GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGERY. ANIMATED
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS A DEVELOPING ANTICYCLONE OVER THE CENTER
WITH IMPROVED RADIAL OUTFLOW ENHANCED BY AN UPPER-LOW NEAR 17S 68E.
TC 16S HAS INTENSIFIED OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS WITH DVORAK ESTIMATES
RANGING FROM 35 TO 55 KNOTS. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON AN
AVERAGE OF THESE ESTIMATES. THE SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY TRACKING UNDER
THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE LOW- TO MID-LEVEL NEAR EQUATORIAL
RIDGE (NER) NORTH OF THE SYSTEM AND IS EXPECTED TO TRACK SLOWLY
THROUGH TAU 24 DUE TO THE COMPETING STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUB-
TROPICAL RIDGE (STR) SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM. AFTER TAU 24, THE STR IS
FORECAST TO WEAKEN WITH THE APPROACH OF A MIDLATITUDE TROUGH AND THE
NER SHOULD BECOME THE DOMINANT STEERING INFLUENCE. THE AVAILABLE
DYNAMIC AIDS REFLECT THE WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT AND INDICATE
QUASI-STATIONARY OR VERY SLOW TRACK SPEEDS THROUGH TAU 24 THEN
SLIGHT ACCELERATION THROUGH TAU 48. TC 16S IS FORECAST TO SLOWLY
INTENSIFY THROUGH TAU 12 BUT SHOULD INTENSIFY AT A FASTER RATE AS
THE UPPER-LOW SHIFTS WEST, ALLOWING FOR IMPROVED POLEWARD OUTFLOW,
AND THE EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW IMPROVES. THIS FORECAST IS POSITIONED
SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF THE CONSENSUS BASED ON THE CURRENT TRACK AND THE
LIKELY TRACK EASTWARD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 050000Z
IS 14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 051500Z AND 060300Z.//

REMARKS:
051500Z POSITION NEAR 13.7S 81.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (HONDO) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 630 NM SOUTH-
EAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED METSAT IMAGERY AND SATELLITE INTENSITY
ESTIMATES INDICATE THE SYSTEM HAS UNDERGONE A PERIOD OF RAPID INTEN-
SIFICATION OVER THE LAST 12 HOURS. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON
AN AVERAGE OF THE INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM FMEE, KNES AND PGTW. UPPER
LEVEL ANALYSIS REVEALS AN UPPER LEVEL MESO-ANTICYCLONE JUST EAST OF
CENTER AND GOOD DUAL OUTFLOW CHANNELS. THIS FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL
ENVIRONMENT WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD AND ALLOW THE
SYSTEM TO INTENSIFY. TC 16S WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK UNDER THE STEERING
INFLUENCE OF THE LOW- TO MID-LEVEL NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE (NER) NORTH
OF THE SYSTEM AND IS EXPECTED TO TRACK SLOWLY THROUGH TAU 24 DUE TO
THE COMPETING STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE SOUTH OF THE
SYSTEM. OVERALL THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT AND
REFLECT THE WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT WITH VERY SLOW EASTWARD TRACK
SPEEDS. THE FORECAST INTENSITIES HAVE BEEN CHANGED SIGNIFICANTLY FROM
THE PREVIOUS WARNING DUE TO THE RAPID INTENSIFICATION OF THE SYSTEM.
THIS CHANGE IN THE FORECAST IS ALSO REFLECTED IN THE CURRENT DYNAMIC
AIDS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 051200Z IS 30 FEET. NEXT
WARNINGS AT 060300Z AND 061500Z.//

REMARKS:
060300Z POSITION NEAR 14.0S 81.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (HONDO) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 640 NM SOUTH-
EAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 03 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL IMAGERY SHOWS A
RAPIDLY DEVELOPING PINPOINT EYE. A 060046Z SSMI MICROWAVE IMAGE
DEPICTS AN EYEWALL WITH GOOD CONVECTIVE BANDING NORTH AND SOUTH OF
THE CENTER. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY DEPICTS IMPROVED RADIAL
OUTFLOW ENHANCED BY THE UPPER LEVEL LOW LOCATED TO THE WEST OF THE
SYSTEM. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON THE HIGH-CONFIDENCE EYE
POSITION. THE SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY TRACKING ON A MORE SOUTHEASTWARD
COURSE THAN PREVIOUSLY FORECAST DUE TO THE NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE
BUILDING IN TO THE EAST OF THE SYSTEM BUT IS EXPECTED TO MAINTAIN AN
EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD TRACK THROUGH THE PERIOD. THE FORECAST IS BASED
ON THE CONSENSUS OF THE DYNAMIC AIDS WHICH ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT.
THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES OF 77 KNOTS.
TC 16S IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY UNDER FAVORABLE CONDITIONS AT A
15 KNOT PER DAY RATE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 060000Z
IS 32 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 061500Z AND 070300Z.//

REMARKS:
061500Z POSITION NEAR 14.2S 81.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (HONDO) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 685 NM SOUTH-
EAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 05 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT METSAT AND MICROWAVE IMAGERY SHOWS AN EYE
GIVING THE INITIAL POSITION A HIGH DEGREE OF CONFIDENCE. THE CURRENT
INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 90 KNOTS. UPPER
LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH GOOD RADIAL OUT-
FLOW ENHANCED BY THE UPPER LEVEL LOW LOCATED TO THE WEST OF THE SYSTEM.
THE SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD DUE TO THE STEERING
INFLUENCE OF THE NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTHEAST OF THE SYSTEM
WHICH WILL REMAIN IN PLACE FOR THE ENTIRE FORECAST PERIOD. THE SYSTEM
WILL CONTINUE TO STRENGTHEN AS THE FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT
WILL PERSIST. THE FORECAST IS BASED ON THE CONSENSUS OF THE DYNAMIC
AIDS WHICH ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT. THE FORECAST HAS NOT SIGNIFICANTLY
CHANGED SINCE THE PREVIOUS ONE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
061200Z IS 36 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 070300Z AND 071500Z.//

REMARKS:
062100Z POSITION NEAR 14.5S 82.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (HONDO) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 705 NM
SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. TC 16S HAS RAPIDLY INTENSIFIED OVER THE
PAST 06 HOURS. THIS RAPID INTENSIFICATION AND RESULTANT HIGHER
FORECAST INTENSITIES ARE DEPARTURES FROM THE PREVIOUS FORECAST.
SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 115 TO 127 KNOTS SUPPORT
THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 120 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS CONTINUES
TO INDICATE A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH GOOD RADIAL OUTFLOW EN-
HANCED BY THE UPPER LEVEL LOW LOCATED TO THE WEST OF THE SYSTEM.
THE SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD DUE TO THE STEERING
INFLUENCE OF THE NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTHEAST OF THE SYSTEM
THAT WILL REMAIN IN PLACE FOR THE ENTIRE FORECAST PERIOD. THE STORM
WILL STRENGTHEN SLIGHTLY OVER THE NEXT 12 HOURS BEFORE MAINTAINING
INTENSITY THROUGH TAU 36 AS THE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT WILL REMAIN
FAVORABLE. THE STORM WILL BEGIN TO WEAKEN SLIGHTLY BY TAU 48 AS
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR BEGINS TO INCREASE DUE TO AN APPROACHING MID-
LATITUDE TROUGH. THE FORECAST IS BASED ON THE CONSENSUS OF THE
DYNAMIC AIDS WHICH ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 061800Z IS 38 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 070900Z AND
072100Z.//

REMARKS:
080900Z POSITION NEAR 15.2S 83.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (HONDO) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 802 NM SOUTH-
EAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED EASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST
SIX HOURS. THE INTENSITY OF TC 16S HAS DIMINISHED SLIGHTLY SINCE THE
PREVIOUS FORECAST, WHICH IS SEEN IN MULTISPECTRAL AND MICROWAVE
IMAGERY WHICH DEPICT THE MAJORITY OF THE DEEP CONVECTION CONFINED TO
THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE OF THE STORM. TC 16S IS TRACKING SLOWLY
SOUTHEASTWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO
THE NORTHEAST. AS PREVIOUSLY ANTICIPATED THE SYSTEM HAS BEGUN A POLE-
WARD TURN AND IS EXPECTED TO ACCELERATE AS IT TRACKS SOUTH-SOUTHEAST-
WARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF AN APPROACHING MIDLATITUDE TROUGH. THE
SYSTEM WILL ALSO BEGIN TO GRADUALLY WEAKEN AS INTERACTION WITH THE
APPROACHING TROUGH OCCURS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 080600Z
IS 40 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 082100Z AND 090900Z. REFER TO TROPICAL
CYCLONE 17S (NONAME) WARNINGS (WTXS32 PGTW) AND TROPICAL CYCLONE
18S (IVAN) WARNINGS (WTXS33 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES. JUSTI-
FICATION FOR CORRECTION: CORRECTED ERROR IN WAVE HEIGHT IN REMARKS.

REMARKS:
082100Z POSITION NEAR 15.9S 84.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (HONDO) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 870 NM SOUTH-
EAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED INFRARED IMAGERY REVEALS A SYMMETRIC
AND MATURE SYSTEM WITH DUAL OUTFLOW CHANNELS. A 081456Z 85 GHZ SSMI/S
MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS DEEP CONVECTION AROUND THE WELL-DEFINED EYE.
HOWEVER, RECENT DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES REFLECTED A SLIGHT DECREASE
IN INTENSITY OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. THE SYSTEM WILL TRACK SOUTHWARD
ALONG THE ANTICYCLONE LOCATED TO THE WEST OF THE SYSTEM. THIS FORECAST
IS BASED ON THE CONSENSUS OF THE AVAILABLE OBJECTIVE MODEL AIDS, WHICH
ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT. THE INTENSITY FORECAST IS BASED ON STIPS, WHICH
FORECASTS A SLIGHT DECREASE IN INTENSITY AS THE STORM TRACKS TOWARD
LOWER, BUT STILL ADEQUATE SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 081800Z IS 38 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 090900Z AND 092100Z.
REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 17S (NONAME) WARNINGS (WTXS32 PGTW) FOR
TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 18S (IVAN)
WARNINGS (WTXS33 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES.

REMARKS:
090900Z POSITION NEAR 17.0S 85.6E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (HONDO) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 940 NM SOUTH-
EAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 07 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT METSAT IMAGERY REVEALS A SYMMETRIC AND MATURE
SYSTEM WITH DUAL OUTFLOW CHANNELS AND A WELL-DEFINED EYE. HOWEVER,
RECENT DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES REFLECTED A SLIGHT DECREASE IN
INTENSITY OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. THE SYSTEM WILL TRACK SOUTHWARD
ALONG THE ANTICYCLONE LOCATED TO THE WEST OF THE SYSTEM. THE INTENSITY
WILL CONTINUE TO SLOWLY DECREASE AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS OVER COOLER
WATERS AND THE EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW DECREASES. THIS FORECAST TRACK AND
INTENSITY IS BASED ON THE CONSENSUS OF THE AVAILABLE OBJECTIVE MODEL
AIDS, WHICH REMAIN IN GOOD AGREEMENT. OVERALL THE FORECAST HAS NOT
SIGNIFICANTLY CHANGED SINCE THE PREVIOUS ONE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 090600Z IS 40 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 092100Z AND 100900Z.

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (HONDO) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 1050 NM 
SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 
09 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. TC 16S HAS WEAKENED OVER THE PAST 
12 HOURS DUE TO INCREASED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND LOWER SEA SURFACE 
TEMPERATURES. RECENT ANIMATED INFRARED IMAGERY SHOWS A SMALL, 
IRREGULAR AND RAGGED EYE WITH DECREASED EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW AND 
CONTINUED GOOD POLEWARD OUTFLOW. ADDITIONALLY, A 091443Z SSMI/S PASS 
REVEALS A SLIGHT DISPLACEMENT OF DEEP CONVECTION TO THE SOUTH OF THE 
EYE DUE TO THE HIGHER VERTICAL WIND SHEAR VALUES. THE SYSTEM WILL 
TRACK SOUTHWARD ON A POLEWARD EXTENSION OF THE NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE,
AND THEN TO BEGIN TO TURN MORE TOWARD THE WEST AS THE SUBTROPICAL 
RIDGE STARTS TO BUILD IN TO THE SOUTH AROUND TAU 36. THE STORM WILL 
SLOWLY WEAKEN IN A CONTINUED MARGINAL ENVIRONMENT. NEXT WARNINGS AT 
100900Z AND 102100Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 17S (NONAME)

102100Z POSITION NEAR 21.9S 86.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (HONDO) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 1200 NM 
SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 07 
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED INFRARED IMAGERY SHOWS 
A WEAKENING SYSTEM WITH CONVECTION NOW SHEARED TO THE SOUTHWEST DUE 
TO INCREASED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. HOWEVER, A 101429Z SSMI/S MICROWAVE 
IMAGE STILL INDICATES A WELL-DEFINED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. 
THE SYSTEM HAS BEEN TRACKING POLEWARD ALONG AN UPPER LEVEL ANTI-
CYCLONE SITUATED ITS EAST. WITHIN THE FIRST 12 HOURS, THE SUBTROPICAL 
RIDGE WILL BUILD IN TO THE SOUTHWEST INDUCING A MORE WESTWARD STEERING 
COMPONENT. TC 16S HAS ALREADY WEAKENED MORE THAN PREVIOUSLY FORECAST, 
AND THIS TREND WILL CONTINUE AS IT TRACKS THROUGH LOWER SEA SURFACE 
TEMPERATURES AND A REGION OF HIGH VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. MAXIMUM 
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 101800Z IS 28 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 
110900Z AND 112100Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE  18S (IVAN)

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (HONDO) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 1255 NM
SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 03
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE FULLY-EXPOSED LOW-LEVEL CIRC-

1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
100 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 18.5S 59.7E TO 21.5S 57.5E
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
IMAGERY AT 220530Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 18.8S 59.7E. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTHWARD AT 02 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 18.2S
60.1E, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 18.8S 59.7E, APPROXIMATELY 270 NM EAST-
NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION. RECENT ANIMATED INFRARED AND MULTISPECTRAL
IMAGERY DEPICTS FLARING DEEP CONVECTION NEAR THE WELL-DEFINED LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). RECENT QUIKSCAT AND ASCAT IMAGES
CONTINUE TO DEPICT THIS WELL-DEFINED LLCC WITH 25 TO 30 KNOT WINDS
NEAR THE CENTER OF THE CIRCULATION. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES
THAT THE LLCC IS LOCATED UNDER A MARGINAL UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT
WITH LOW TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR, BUT GOOD DIFFLUENCE ALOFT.
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS.
MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1000 MB. DUE TO
THE WELL-DEFINED LLCC AND FLARING CONVECTION, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT
24 HOURS IS GOOD. THIS SUPERSEDES REF A.

EXPECTED TO CONTINUE WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG THE PERIPHERY OF
THE LOW- TO MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE LOCATED TO THE SOUTH

REMARKS:
240300Z POSITION NEAR 23.4S 53.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (HONDO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 100 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT
15 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. SATELLITE IMAGERY AND SURFACE
OBSERVATIONS INDICATED THAT TC 16S TRACKED OVER THE NORTHWESTERN
CORNER OF THE LA REUNION. THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
WEAKENED SIGNIFICANTLY AS IT TRACKED OVER THE HIGH TERRAIN OF
THE ISLAND. THE SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK POLEWARD TOWARD
UNFAVORABLE SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND OCEAN HEAT CONTENT,
MAKING RE-INTENSIFICATION UNLIKELY. THIS IS THE FINAL WARNING
ON THIS SYSTEM BY THE JOINT TYPHOON WARNING CENTER (NAVPACMETOCCEN).
THE SYSTEM WILL BE CLOSELY MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF REGENERATION.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 240000Z IS 12 FEET.
