AMPN/REF IS TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT (WTXS21 PGTW 171900)//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 180 NM RADIUS OF 20.8S 42.2E WITHIN THE NEXT 06 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 25 TO 30 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY AT 180430Z INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 20.9S 42.3E. THE SYSTEM IS
MOVING SOUTHWARD AT 05 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 20.6S
42.5E, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 20.9S 42.3E, APPROXIMATELY 295 NM WEST-
SOUTHWEST OF ANTANANARIVO, MADAGASCAR. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A SMALL, RAPIDLY CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH TIGHTLY-CURVED CONVECTIVE BANDING
WRAPPING INTO A SYMMETRIC, CDO-LIKE FEATURE. AN 180334Z SSMIS COLOR
IMAGE ALSO INDICATES RAPID CONSOLIDATION WITH A WELL-DEFINED LLCC.
ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS THAT AN ANTICYCLONE HAS DEVELOPED
OVER THE SYSTEM WITH MUCH IMPROVED DUAL CHANNEL OUTFLOW ENHANCED BY
AN APPROACHING MIDLATITUDE SHORTWAVE TROUGH SOUTHWEST OF THE SYSTEM.
UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES WEAK TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR.
ADDITIONALLY, SST VALUES ARE HIGH, NEAR 30C AND OCEAN HEAT CONTENT
IS FAVORABLE. 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 VERY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT AND THE RAPID
CONSOLIDATION, 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 190530Z.

REMARKS:
190300Z POSITION NEAR 21.3S 41.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 09S (NINE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 355 NM WEST-
SOUTHWEST OF ANTANANARIVO, MADAGASCAR HAS TRACKED NORTHWESTWARD
AT 03 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. AN 18/1927Z ASCAT PASS SHOWS 
WINDS OF 30-35 KTS AT THE SYSTEM'S CENTER. TC 09S IS IN A REGION OF 
WEAK STEERING IN THE MOZAMBIQUE CHANNEL, AND MAY BE BEGINNING TO 
FEEL THE INFLUENCE OF TC 08S, WHICH IS APPROXIMATELY 535 NM TO THE 
NORTHEAST. TC 09S IS FORECAST TO TRACK SLOWLY NORTHEASTWARD 
THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD IN RESPONSE TO TC 08S, WHICH WILL 
TRACK SOUTHWARD DOWN THE EASTERN COAST OF MADAGASCAR. ALTHOUGH THE 
MODELS GENERALLY IN AGREEMENT, THE POTENTIAL INTERACTION WITH TC 08S 
GREATLY INCREASES THE FORECAST UNCERTAINTY. REGARDING INTENSITY, THE 
UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH TO THE SOUTH OF MADAGASCAR WILL PROVIDE A 
POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL, ALLOWING FOR SOME INTENSIFICATION THOUGH 
TAU 48. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS REF A, NAVMARFCSTCEN

REMARKS:
191500Z POSITION NEAR 21.7S 41.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 09S (FANELE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 375 NM
WEST-SOUTHWEST OF ANTANANARIVO, MADAGASCAR HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT
02 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY INDICATES THAT TC 09S HAS INTENSIFIED OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS
WITH TIGHTLY-CURVED BANDING AND A POSSIBLE EYE. A 191058z AMSR-E
IMAGE DEPICTS A PINPOINT MICROWAVE EYE AS WELL AS EXCELLENT CONV-
ECTIVE BANDING OVER ALL QUADRANTS. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY
CONTINUES TO SHOW GOOD RADIAL OUTFLOW. TC 09S HAS TRACKED SLOWLY
WESTWARD OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS UNDER A WEAK FINGER OF THE LOW-
TO MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE POSITIONED SOUTHWEST OF THE SYSTEM
BUT IS EXPECTED TO TURN NORTHEASTWARD IN RESPONSE TO TC 08S. AFTER
TAU 12-24 THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO ACCELERATE SLIGHTLY AND TRACK
SOUTHEASTWARD IN RESPONSE TO A DEEPENING MIDLATITUDE SHORTWAVE
TROUGH CURRENTLY MOVING ACROSS SOUTH AFRICA. DYNAMIC MODEL
GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. TC 09S IS NOW
FORECAST TO INTENSIFY TO 65 KNOTS PRIOR TO MAKING LANDFALL.
THERE IS STILL POTENTIAL INTERACTION POSSIBLE WITH TC 08S NEAR
20/00Z AS THE SYSTEMS APPROACH WITHIN 430 NM WHICH MAY SLIGHTLY
AFFECT THE FORECAST TRACKS OF BOTH STORMS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 191200Z IS 11 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 200300Z AND
201500Z. REFER TO TC 08S (ERIC) WARNINGS (WTXS31 PGTW) FOR

REMARKS:
192100Z POSITION NEAR 21.6S 41.8E.
A 191530Z CORIOLIS WINDSAT MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS A WELL-DEFINED
MICROWAVE EYE, WITH THE LATEST ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
SHOWING A BUDDING VISIBLE EYE. A SERIES OF MICROWAVE IMAGES FROM 12Z
TO 18Z SUGGEST THE SYSTEM HAS TRACKED GENERALLY EASTWARD OVER THE
PAST 06 HOURS, WITH THE 1800Z POSITION BEING A COMPROMISE AMONG
SATELLITE FIXES FROM PGTW, KNES, AND FMMM, AND MORE SO THE
191530Z WINDSAT, AND A LATER 191621Z SSMI IMAGE. DVORAK SATELLITE
INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM FMEE AND PGTW INDICATE A 60 TO 65 KNOT
SYSTEM. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO TRACK MORE NORTHEASTWARD OVER THE
NEXT 12 HOURS AS THE TROUGH AXIS TO THE SOUTH PUSHES PAST THE
SYSTEM. TO A LESSER EXTENT INTERACTION WITH TC 08S WILL ALSO
FACILITATE SUCH MOTION. AFTER TAU 12 RIDGING SHOULD REBUILD TO THE
NORTH OF TC 09S FORCING THE SYSTEM WELL-INLAND BY TAU 24. THE SYSTEM
WILL RAPIDLY DEGRADE OVER THE RUGGED TERRAIN OF SOUTH-CENTRAL
MADAGASCAR. PRIOR TO MAKING LANDFALL THE SYSTEM SHOULD INTENSIFY TO
NEAR 80 KNOTS DUE TO SUSTAINED DUAL OUTFLOW CHANNELS AND WARM SEAS.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 191800Z IS 15 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS
AT 200900Z AND 202100Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 08S (ERIC)

200900Z POSITION NEAR 20.3S 42.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 09S (FANELE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 260 NM
WEST-SOUTHWEST OF ANTANANARIVO, MADAGASCAR HAS TRACKED NORTHEAST AT
O8 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS
EXCELLENT EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW WITH DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDS WRAPPING
INTO THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES
FROM PGTW, FMEE, AND KNES INDICATE THE SYSTEM HAS INTENSIFIED OVER
THE PAST 12 HOURS. CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON ANIMATED MULTISPEC-
TRAL IMAGERY AND A 200456Z SSMI MICROWAVE PASS WITH A HIGH DEGREE OF
CONFIDENCE. ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS INDICATES TC 09S REMAINS IN A
FAVORABLE AREA WITH WARM SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE AND LOW VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR ALOFT. THE SYSTEM IS TRACKING ALONG THE EASTERN PERIPHERY
OF A DEEP LEVEL RIDGE EXTENDING OUT OF MOZAMBIQUE. THIS TRACK IS
FURTHER ENHANCED BY THE CYCLONE'S INTERACTION WITH TC 08S LOCATED OFF
THE SOUTHEASTERN COAST OF MADAGSCAR. TC 09S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
TO INTENSIFY AND TRACK NORTHEASTWARD OVER THE NEXT 12 HOURS BEFORE IT
RECURVES SOUTHEASTWARD AS IT DRIFTS INTO THE WESTERN BOUNDARY OF
ANOTHER MID-LEVEL RIDGE EAST OF MADAGASCAR. THIS RECURVATURE WILL
DRAG THE SYSTEM INTO LAND, CAUSING IT TO DISSIPATE BY TAU 48. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 200600Z IS 18 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
202100Z AND 210900Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 08S (ERIC) WARNINGS
(WTXS31 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES.

WEST-SOUTHWEST OF ANTANANARIVO, MADAGASCAR, HAS TRACKED EAST AT O6
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS
STRONG EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW AND DEGRADATION OF DEEP CONVECTIVE
BANDING AS THE SYSTEM APPROACHES THE WESTERN SHORE OF MADAGASCAR.
SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM PGTW, FMEE, AND KNES INDICATE
THAT SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT HAS PLATEAUED DURING THE PAST 12 HOURS.
CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON ANIMATED INFRARED IMAGERY AND A 201606Z

ANALYSIS INDICATES TC 09S REMAINS IN A FAVORABLE AREA WITHIN WARM
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ALOFT. THE
SYSTEM IS TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN FLANK OF THE SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE EXTENDING WEST FROM OVER THE SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN. TC 09S IS
EXPECTED TO WEAKEN AS IT APPROACHES LAND IN THE NEXT 12 HOURS. THE
SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS
BEFORE IT CURVES SOUTHWARD DUE TO THE STRENGTHENING MID-LEVEL RIDGE.
THIS TRACK OVER LAND WILL SEVERELY WEAKEN THE SYSTEM CAUSING IT TO
