MSGID/GENADMIN/NAVPACMETOCCEN PEARL HARBOR HI//
SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
110 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 12.3S 59.4E TO 13.3S 64.8E
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 27 TO 32 KNOTS. METSAT
IMAGERY AT 070000Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 12.4S 59.7E.  THE SYSTEM IS MOVING EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 11
KNOTS.
2. REMARKS:  AN AREA OF CONVECTION HAS PERSISTED NEAR 11.5S 58.2E,
APPROXIMATELY 600 NM NORTH-NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION, OVER THE PAST
12 HOURS. RECENT INFRARED AND WATER VAPOR IMAGERY DEPICT A CONSOLI-
DATING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH CONVECTIVE BANDING
EQUATORWARD AND DEVELOPING BANDS POLEWARD OF THE CENTER. A 062121Z
AMSR-E 37 GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE REVEALS A WELL DEFINED LLCC WITH THE
AFORMENTIONED CONVECTIVE BANDING. PREVIOUS QUIKSCAT IMAGES DEPICTED
25 TO 30 KNOT UNFLAGGED WINDS NEAR THE CENTER. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES THAT THE LLCC REMAINS UNDER LOW TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR WITH GOOD UPPER LEVEL DIFFLUENCE. AN UPPER LEVEL LOW THAT HAS
BEEN IMPINGING ON THE POLEWARD SIDE OF THE DISTURBANCE CONTINUES
TO MOVE WESTWARD, WHICH WILL CREATE AN EVEN MORE FAVORABLE ENVIRON-
MENT FOR DEVELOPMENT. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED
AT 27 TO 32 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE
NEAR 1002 MB. DUE TO THE STRONG LOW-LEVEL SIGNATURE AND IMPROVING
UPPER-LEVEL CONDITIONS, 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 080130Z.//

REMARKS:
070900Z POSITION NEAR 13.0S 61.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (NONAME) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 770 NM WEST-
SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 11 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A
070136Z TRMM IMAGE DEPICT A WELL DEFINED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
(LLCC) WITH DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE CENTER OF THE
SYSTEM. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS SUPPORTED BY DVORAK INTENSITY ESTI-
MATES OF 30 TO 45 KNOTS AND A RECENT QUIKSCAT IMAGE DEPICTING 25 TO
30 KNOT UNFLAGGED WINDS NEAR THE LLCC. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES
THAT THE LLCC REMAINS UNDER LOW TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR WITH
GOOD UPPER LEVEL DIFFLUENCE. THE SYSTEM WILL STRENGTHEN GRADUALLY
UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THIS FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT AS IT
TRACKS EASTWARD DUE TO THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE NEAR EQUATORIAL
RIDGE TO THE NORTH OF THE SYSTEM WHICH WILL REMAIN IN PLACE THROUGH-
OUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. THIS FORECAST IS BASED ON THE CONSENSUS OF
THE DYNAMIC AIDS WHICH ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES
AND CANCELS REF A, NAVPACMETOCCEN 070121Z FEB 08 TROPICAL CYCLONE
FORMATION ALERT (WTXS22 PGTW 070130). MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT
AT 070600Z IS 16 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 072100Z AND 080900Z. REFER TO

REMARKS:
072100Z POSITION NEAR 14.7S 62.6E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (IVAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 735 NM SOUTH-
WEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 11 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST 06 HOURS. TC 18S HAS UNDERGONE CONSIDERABLE DEVELOPMENT SINCE
THE LAST WARNING FROM THIS AGENCY, WITH MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WIND SPEEDS
ESTIMATED AT 55 KNOTS. MICROWAVE IMAGERY SHOWS AN EYE LIKE FEATURE
WHICH SUPPORTS THIS ESTIMATED WIND SPEED. THE SYSTEM IS TRACKING ON
THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE, AND IS
EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TRACKING GENERALLY EASTWARD THROUGHOUT THE FORE-
CAST PERIOD. AFTER TAU 24 THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO TRACK SLIGHTLY
EQUATORWARD TOWARD A WEAKNESS IN THE NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE. THE
SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE INTENSIFYING THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST
PERIOD. AS THE SYSTEM UNDERGOES FURTHER DEVELOPMENT, THE DEVELOPMENT
OF DUAL OUT-FLOW CHANNELS IS POSSIBLE AND MAY RESULT IN A PERIOD OF
MORE RAPID INTENSIFICATION. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
071800Z IS 18 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 080900Z AND 082100Z. REFER TO
TROPICAL CYCLONE 16S (HONDO) WARNINGS (WTXS31 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-
HOURLY UPDATES. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 17S (NONAME) WARNINGS

SLOWLY TRACKING SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGH TAU 24, AND THEN BEGIN A
GRADUAL TURN TO THE SOUTH-SOUTHWEST NEAR THE END OF THE FORECAST
PERIOD AS THE RIDGE TO THE SOUTHEAST FURTHER STRENGTHENS. THE UPPER
LEVEL ENVIRONMENT REMAINS VERY FAVORABLE, AND THUS TC 16S IS FORECAST
TO CONTINUE INTENSIFYING THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 080600Z IS 18 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
082100Z AND 090900Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 16S (HONDO) WARNINGS

REMARKS:
082100Z POSITION NEAR 16.1S 63.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (IVAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 730 NM SOUTH-
WEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST 06 HOURS. INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM
PGTW AND FMEE. A 081447Z SSMI 85 GHZ PASS SHOWS A DEVELOPING BANDING
EYE. RECENT ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY REVEALS A WELL-ESTABLISHED
POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL AND LIMITED EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW DUE IN PART
TO UPPER LEVEL TROUGHING. THE SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY IN A WEAK STEERING
ENVIRONMENT. THE MOST RECENT FORECAST REFLECTS AN EVEN SLOWER TRACK
THAN THE PREVIOUS. THE AIDS ARE IN POOR AGREEMENT; AND THEIR LARGE
SPREAD IS USUALLY INDICATIVE OF QUASI-STATIONARY MOTION. THE STORM
IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN IN WEAK STEERING THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST
PERIOD. TC 18P WILL SLIGHTLY INTENSIFY THROUGH TAU 48. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 081800Z IS 22 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
090900Z AND 092100Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 16S (HONDO)
WARNINGS (WTXS31 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES. REFER TO TROPICAL
CYCLONE 17S (NONAME) WARNINGS (WTXS32 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY

092100Z POSITION NEAR 15.4S 63.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (IVAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 700 NM SOUTH-
WEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-NORTHEAST AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE 
PAST 06 HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED INFRARED IMAGERY REVEALS AN ASYMMETRIC 
SYSTEM WITH EXCELLENT EQUATORWARD AND LIMITED POLEWARD OUTFLOW. THE 
LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) APPEARS TO HAVE WEAKENED ON THE
MOST RECENT 091420Z 37 GHZ SSMI PASS, WHICH IS REFLECTED IN LOWER
DVORAK ESTIMATES. THE SYSTEM HAS BEEN IN A REGION OF COMPETING 
STEERING INFLUENCES BETWEEN THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE BUILDING IN FROM 
THE SOUTHWEST AND THE SOUTHERN PORTION OF THE NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE. 
TC 18S IS CURRENTLY UNDER MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. A GENERALLY
EASTWARD, BUT SLOW TRACK IS EXPECTED THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD.
THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY SLIGHTLY FASTER AFTER TAU 24 DUE 
TO ENHANCED POLEWARD OUTFLOW ASSOCIATED WITH A MIDLATITDE TROUGH. 
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 091800Z IS 28 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS 
AT 100900Z AND 102100Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 16S (HONDO) 
WARNINGS (WTXS31 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES. REFER TO TROPICAL

REMARKS:
102100Z POSITION NEAR 14.5S 65.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (IVAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 605 NM SOUTH-
WEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED NORTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE 
PAST 06 HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED INFRARED IMAGERY SHOWS INCREASED 
CONVECTION NEAR THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) OVER 
THE PAST 12 HOURS. A 101613Z SSMI/S 89 GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE ONCE
AGAIN SHOWS THE PRESENCE OF A BANDING EYE. THE STORM CONTINUES
TO TRACK SLOWLY NORTHEASTWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE NEAR
EQUATORIAL RIDGE. HOWEVER, A STRONG SUBTROPICAL RIDGE IS FORECAST
TO BUILD IN FROM THE WEST AND BECOME THE PRIMARY STEERING INFLUENCE
FOR TC 18S. THE AVAILABLE OBJECTIVE AIDS ALL FORECAST A TURN BACK
TOWARD THE WEST FOR THE STORM, BUT DISAGREE ON THE TIMING OF THIS 
TURN. DUE TO THIS UNCERTAINTY, THE FORECAST TRACK STAYS VERY CLOSE
TO THE CONSENSUS. THE STORM WILL CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY, ESPECIALLY 
AS POLEWARD OUTFLOW IS ENHANCED BY A MIDLATITUDE TROUGH SOUTHEAST 
OF THE SYSTEM. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 101800Z IS 30 FEET.
NEXT WARNINGS AT 110900Z AND 112100Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE

REMARKS:
110900Z POSITION NEAR 14.2S 65.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (IVAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 595 NM
SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD AT
03 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. RECENT METSAT IMAGERY REVEALS
AN EYE FEATURE HAS DEVELOPED OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. THE SYSTEM
IS IN A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT AND WILL REMAIN QUASISTATIONARY
UNTIL AFTER TAU 24. AFTER TAU 24, THE SYSTEM WILL TRANSITION TO
A SLOW WESTWARD TRACK AS A STRONG SUBTROPICAL RIDGE IS FORECAST
TO BUILD IN FROM THE WEST AND BECOME THE PRIMARY STEERING INFLUENCE.
THE AVAILABLE OBJECTIVE AIDS ALL FORECAST A TURN BACK TOWARD THE
WEST FOR THE STORM, BUT DISAGREE ON THE TIMING OF THIS TURN. THE
STORM WILL CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY, ESPECIALLY AS POLEWARD OUTFLOW
IS ENHANCED BY A MIDLATITUDE TROUGH SOUTHEAST OF THE SYSTEM. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 101800Z IS 28 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
110900Z AND 112100Z. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 110600Z
IS 35 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 112100Z AND 120900Z. REFER TO TROPICAL
CYCLONE 16S (HONDO) WARNINGS (WTXS31 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES.

REMARKS:
112100Z POSITION NEAR 14.3S 64.8E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (IVAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 615 NM
SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS REMAINED QUASISTATIONARY OVER THE
PAST 06 HOURS. THE SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY IN A WEAK STEERING ENVIR-
ONMENT BUT WILL TRANSITION TO A SLOW WESTWARD TRACK NEAR TAU 12
AS A STRONG SUBTROPICAL RIDGE BUILDS IN FROM THE SOUTHWEST AND
BECOMES THE PRIMARY STEERING INFLUENCE. THE STORM WILL INTESIFY
VERY SLOWLY THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD DUE TO INHIBITED POLEWARD
OUTFLOW. AFTER TAU 48, THE INTENSIFICATION RATE IS EXPECTED TO
INCREASE AS POLEWARD OUTFLOW IS ENHANCED BY A MIDLATITUDE TROUGH

HEIGHT AT 111800Z IS 40 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 120900Z AND
122100Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE  16S (HONDO) WARNINGS (WTXS31

REMARKS:
120900Z POSITION NEAR 14.0S 64.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (IVAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 660 NM
NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 03
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. TC 18S IS BEGINNING TO TRACK MORE
RAPIDLY WESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF A BUILDING SUB-
TROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. THIS RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN
THE PRIMARY STEERING INFLUENCE THROUGH THE NEXT 48 HOURS,
INDUCING A GENERALLY WESTWARD TRACK THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD.
THE STORM HAS WEAKENED OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS IN RESPONSE TO
INCREASING EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND PASSAGE OVER AN
AREA OF LOWER OCEAN HEAT CONTENT. THIS WEAKENING TREND IS EXPEC-
TED TO CONTINUE THROUGH THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS. THEREAFTER,
IMPROVED POLEWARD OUTFLOW AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE
TROUGH AND HIGHER OCEAN HEAT CONTENT SHOULD ALLOW THE STORM TO
REINTENSIFY SLIGHTLY. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 120600Z
IS 31 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 122100Z AND 130900Z. REFER TO
TROPICAL CYCLONE  16S (HONDO) WARNINGS (WTXS31 PGTW) FOR THE
FINAL WARNING ON THAT SYSTEM.//

REMARKS:
122100Z POSITION NEAR 14.0S 63.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (IVAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 640 NM NORTH-
EAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 03 KNOTS OVER THE PAST
06 HOURS. TC 18S IS TRACKING WESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF
A BUILDING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. THIS RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO
REMAIN THE PRIMARY STEERING INFLUENCE THROUGH THE NEXT 48 HOURS,
MAINTAINING A GENERALLY WESTWARD TRACK THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD.
THE STORM HAS FURTHER WEAKENED OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS IN RESPONSE TO
INCREASING EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND PASSAGE OVER AN AREA OF
LOWER OCEAN HEAT CONTENT. AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS WESTWARD, AN APPROAC-
HING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH AND HIGHER OCEAN HEAT CONTENT SHOULD ALLOW
THE STORM TO BEGIN INTENSIFYING NEAR TAU 48. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 121800Z IS 32 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 130900Z AND 132100Z.
REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE  19S (NONAME) WARNINGS (WTXS32 PGTW) FOR
TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES.

REMARKS:
130900Z POSITION NEAR 13.8S 61.8E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (IVAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 580 NM NORTH-
EAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE PAST
06 HOURS. TC 18S CONTINUES TO MOVE WESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHERN
PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE SITUATED TO THE SOUTH OF THE STORM.
THE STORM IS EXPECTED TO TRACK GENERALLY WESTWARD AND SLIGHTLY POLE-
WARD THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD AS IT CONTINUES ALONG THE PERIPHERY
OF THE CURRENT STEERING RIDGE. TC 18S HAS WEAKENED DURING THE PAST
12 HOURS UNDER THE DUAL INFLUENCES OF MODERATE EASTERLY VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR AND LOW OCEAN HEAT CONTENT. HOWEVER, THE STORM WILL CROSS
OVER HIGHER OCEAN HEAT CONTENT AND APPROACH A REGION OF LOWER VER-
TICAL WIND SHEAR NEAR THE AXIS OF AN UPPER LEVEL ANTICYCLONE AFTER
TAU 12. THESE IMPROVING ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS SHOULD ALLOW THE STORM
TO MAINTAIN INTENSITY OR INTENSIFY SLIGHTLY THROUGH TAU 36. THERE-
AFTER, INCREASING POLEWARD OUTFLOW AHEAD OF A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH
TO THE SOUTHWEST WILL ALLOW THE STORM INTENSIFY MORE RAPIDLY.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 130600Z IS 24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS
AT 132100Z AND 140900Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (NICHOLAS)

140900Z POSITION NEAR 13.5S 59.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (IVAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 515 NM
NORTH-NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO TRACK ALONG THE
NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR). THE STR WILL
REMAIN THE PRIMARY STEERING INFLUENCE THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST
PERIOD. THE AIDS REMAIN IN GOOD AGREEMENT THROUGH THE FORECAST
PERIOD. PGTW AND KNES INTENSITY ESTIMATES INDICATE TC 18S HAS
INTENSIFIED OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE STORM WILL CONTINUE TO
INTENSIFY DUE TO FAVORABLE OUTFLOW AND MOVEMENT OVER WATER WITH
HIGHER OCEAN HEAT CONTENT. THIS FORECAST REMAINS CONSISTENT WITH
THE PREVIOUS WARNING. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 140600Z
IS 26 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 142100Z AND 150900Z. REFER TO TROPICAL

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (IVAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 320 NM
NORTH-NORTHWEST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 09
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. RECENT METSAT IMAGERY SHOWS CONT-
INUED INTENSIFICATION OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS WITH GOOD RADIAL
OUTFLOW AND A BANDING EYE DEVELOPING WITH DEEP CONVECTION CONF-

TO CONTINUE TO TRACK ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. A FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT AND HIGH
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES WILL ALLOW FOR CONTINUED INTENSIFICA-
TION THROUGH TAU 24, HOWEVER THE SYSTEM WILL BEGIN TO WEAKEN
NEAR TAU 36 AS IT BEGINS TO INTERACT WITH LAND. AVAILABLE MODEL
AIDS REMAIN IN GOOD AGREEMENT AND THE FORECAST REFLECTS THE

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (IVAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 195 NM
NORTHEAST OF ANTANANARIVO, MADAGASCAR HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTH-
WESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. TC 18S CONTINUES
TO TRACK GENERALLY WESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY
OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE LOCATED SOUTH OF THE STORM. THE SYSTEM
HAS MADE LANDFALL ON NOSY SAINTE MARIE ISLAND AND IS CONTINUING
TOWARD THE COAST OF MAINLAND MADAGASCAR NEAR THE TOWN OF
SOANIERANA-IVONGO. THE STORM WILL CONTINUE TRACKING ACROSS THE
RUGGED TERRAIN OF MADAGASCAR ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY
OF THE SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD.
ALTHOUGH THE STORM MAY REEMERGE OVER THE MOZAMBIQUE CHANNEL
BETWEEN TAU 48 AND TAU 72, THE AVAILABLE GUIDANCE SUGGESTS THAT
THE CIRCULATION WILL REMAIN OVER OR VERY CLOSE TO LAND AND
SHOULD THEREFORE WEAKEN BELOW THE WARNING THRESHOLD OF 35 KNOTS.
THUS, THE CURRENT WARNING CALLS FOR DISSIPATION OF THE SYSTEM
BY TAU 48 BUT THE POSSIBILITY OF REGENERATION AFTER PASSAGE
ACROSS THE ISLAND REMAINS. THE TRACK AND INTENSITY FORECASTS
ARE CLOSE TO THE NUMERICAL MODEL CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT

171500Z POSITION NEAR 17.2S 48.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (IVAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 155 NM
NORTHEAST OF ANTANANARIVO, MADAGASCAR HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT
08 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. TC 18S CONTINUES TO TRACK
GENERALLY WESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A SUB-
TROPICAL RIDGE LOCATED SOUTH OF THE STORM. THE STORM WILL
CONTINUE TO TRACK ACROSS THE RUGGED TERRAIN OF MADAGASCAR
ALONG THE PERIPHERY OF THE CURRENT STEERING RIDGE THROUGH THE
FORECAST PERIOD. THE STORM HAS WEAKENED RAPIDLY OVER THE PAST
06 HOURS AND IS EXPECTED TO DISSIPATE BELOW THE WARNING
THRESHOLD OF 35 KNOTS BY TAU 36 AS IT CONTINUES TO TRACK OVER
LAND. HOWEVER, IF THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER TAKES AN
UNANTICIPATED TRACK AND REEMERGES OVER THE MOZAMBIQUE CHANNEL
SOME REGENERATION MAY OCCUR. THE AVAILABLE NUMERICAL MODEL
GUIDANCE INDICATES THAT THE CIRCULATION WILL VERY LIKELY REMAIN
OVER LAND THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE CURRENT TRACK AND
INTENSITY FORECASTS REMAIN CLOSE TO THE MODEL CONSENSUS. NEXT

THE SYSTEM HAS WEAKENED BELOW 35 KNOTS. SURFACE OBSERVATIONS FROM
ANTANANARIVO AT CPA (ABOUT 40 NM) INDICATE MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS
OF 25 KNOTS WITH GUSTS TO 43 KNOTS AND MINIMUM SLP NEAR 1003 MB.
ANIMATED INFRARED IMAGERY SHOWS A HIGHLY DISORGANIZED SYSTEM WITH
FLARING CONVECTION CONFINED TO THE NORTHERN SEMICIRCLE. THE
AVAILABLE DYNAMIC MODELS TRACK THE REMNANTS OF TC 18S INTO THE
MOZAMBIQUE CHANNEL NEAR TAU 24, THEREFORE, THE SYSTEM WILL BE
CLOSELY MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF REGENERATION. THIS IS THE FINAL
WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM BY THE JOINT TYPHOON WARNING
CENTER (NAVPACMETOCCEN). REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (NICHOLAS)
