SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
150 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 13.4S 115.5E TO 14.4S 110.6E
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 27 TO 32 KNOTS. METSAT IM-
AGERY AT 171730Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 13.5S 115.0E.  THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 15
KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: AN AREA OF CONVECTION NEAR 13.5S 115.0E, APPROXIMATELY 
525 NM NORTH OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS PERSISTED OVER THE PAST 12 
HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED IMAGERY SHOWS DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDS 
WRAPPING AROUND THE SOUTHWEST QUADRANT AND INTO THE CENTER OF A WELL-
DEFINED CIRCULATION. A 171405Z AMSU-B IMAGE SHOWS A WELL-DEFINED 
DEEP CONVECTIVE BAND WRAPPING AROUND THE SOUTH AND INTO A WELL 
DEFINED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). POCKETS OF DEEP 
CONVECTION ARE ALSO EVIDENT AROUND THE LLCC. THE SYSTEM IS IN AN 
AREA OF MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND HIGH SEA SURFACE 
TEMPERATURES. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 27 TO 
32 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE 1000 MB. 
BECAUSE THE SYSTEM IS TRACKING WEST-SOUTHWEST TOWARDS LOWER VERTICAL 
WIND SHEAR WHILE CONTINUING TO CONSOLIDATE. THE POTENTIAL FOR 
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS 
IS GOOD.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY 
182000Z.
4. JUSTIFICATION FOR CORRECTION: CORRECTED POSITION IN PARA 2.

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 22S (ILSA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 550 NM
NORTH-NORTHWEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 12
KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED IMAGERY INDICATES A
RAPID INTENSIFICATION OF TC 22S OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. THE OVERALL
STRUCTURE OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) HAS IMPROVED
OVER THE 12 HOURS. AN 181212Z SSMIS PASS REFLECTS DEEP BANDING
CONVECTION HAS PERSISTED AND INCREASED OVER THE LLCC. UPPER LEVEL
ANALYSIS INIDICATES THAT TC 22S IS LOCATED ALONG THE EQUATORWARD
SIDE OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGING IS PROVIDING
STRONG DIVEGENT FLOW, WITH A POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL THAT CONTINUES
TO DEVELOP.  TC 22S IS LOCATED IN IN A REGION OF LOW TO MODERATE
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND HIGH SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES PROVIDING
ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT. AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS TO THE WEST IT WILL
MOVE CLOSER TO THE AXIS OF THE UPPER LEVEL ANTI-CYCLONE AND WILL BE
IN AN AREA OF MORE FAVORABLE VERTICAL WINDSHEAR AND UPPER-LEVEL
OUTFLOW. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 181200Z IS 15 FEET.

REMARKS:
190300Z POSITION NEAR 15.5S 108.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 22S (ILSA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 720 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF COCOS ISLAND HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT
12 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY
SHOWS THAT THE CONVECTION AROUND THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER HAS FURTHER DEEPENED AND CONSOLIDATED, CURRENT CENTRAL
WIND SPEED IS BASED ON SATELLITE INTENSIY ESTIMATES FROM PGTW,
KNES, AND APRF. UPPER LEVEL ANAYLYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM HAS
TRACKED CLOSER TO THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AXIS AND CONSEQUENTLY,
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR HAS WEAKENED, CONTRIBUTING TO THE RAPID
INTENSIFICATION OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. TC 22S WILL CONTINUE TO
TRACK WEST-SOUTHWEST ALONG THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTRO-
PICAL RIDGE AND FURTHER INTENSIFY UP TO TAU 36. AFTER TAU 36,
THE SYSTEM WILL SLIGHTLY WEAKEN WITH INCREASED VWS AS THE RIDGE
TO THE SOUTH BUILDS. THE MAJORITY OF NUMERIC GUIDANCE ARE IN 
AGREEMENT WITH THIS OUTLOOK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
190000Z IS 18 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 191500Z AND 200300Z.//NNN

REMARKS:
191500Z POSITION NEAR 16.5S 106.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 22S (ILSA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 625 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF COCOS ISLAND HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. TC 22S HAS RAPIDLY INTENSIFIED OVER THE PAST
12 HOURS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND STRONG
POLEWARD OUTFLOW. THE CURRENT POSITION AND INTENSITY ESTIMATES ARE
BASED ON DVORAK SATELLITE FIXES FROM PGTW AND APRF AND ASSOCIATED T-
NUMBER VALUES OF 5.5 FROM BOTH REPORTING AGENCIES. THE CYCLONE IS
TRACKING ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
EXTENSION. GENERALLY WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD MOTION IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD UNDER THE CONTINUED STEERING INFLUENCE OF
THIS SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL CONDITIONS SHOULD ALLOW
FURTHER INTENSIFICATION OVER THE NEXT 12 HOURS. HOWEVER, THE CYCLONE
WILL ENCOUNTER DECREASING ALONG-TRACK SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND
SLIGHTLY LESS FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL CONDITIONS AFTER TAU 12, WHICH
SHOULD RESULT IN SLOW WEAKENING. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
191200Z IS 24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 200300Z AND 201500Z.//

REMARKS:
200300Z POSITION NEAR 16.6S 104.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 22S (ILSA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 530 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF COCOS ISLAND HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE SYSTEM HAS SLIGHTLY INTENSIFIED AS 
CONVECTIVE BANDS THAT ARE WRAPPED AROUND THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION 
CENTER CONSOLIDATED AND DEEPENED OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. ENHANCED
POLEWARD OUTFLOW IS ALSO EVIDENT ON ANIMATED WATER VAPOR SATELLITE
IMAGERY. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE CYCLONE IS TRACKING 
UNDER AN AREA OF LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS ) ALONG THE NORTHWES-
TERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE EXTENSION. THE CURRENT POSITION
AND INTENSITY ESTIMATES ARE BASED ON DVORAK SATELLITE FIXES FROM 
PGTW AND APRF WITH T-NUMBER VALUES AT 5.5 AND 5.0, RESPECTIVELY. 
THE CYCLONE IS EXPECTED TO TRACK WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD THROUGH THE 
FORECAST PERIOD UNDER THE CONTINUED STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUB-
TROPICAL RIDGE. TC 22S WILL GRADUALLY WEAKEN AS VWS WILL BEGIN TO 
INCREASE AND ALONG-TRACK SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES DROP TO BELOW 26
DEGREES CELSIUS. THE MAJORITY OF AVAILABLE NUMERIC MODELS ARE IN 
AGREEMENT WITH THIS FORECAST PHILOSOPHY. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE 
HEIGHT AT 200000Z WAS 28 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 201500Z AND 210300Z.

REMARKS:
201500Z POSITION NEAR 16.0S 103.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 22S (ILSA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 460 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF COCOS ISLAND, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. THE CURRENT POSITION ESTIMATE IS BASED ON SATELLITE
FIXES FROM PGTW AND APRF AND A 201116Z WINDSAT PASS. THE CURRENT
INTENSITY ESTIMATE OF 85 KNOTS IS CONSISTENT WITH DVORAK T-NUMBERS OF
4.5 FROM PGTW AND 5.0 FROM APRF. TC 22S HAS WEAKENED OVER THE PAST 12
HOURS IN RESPONSE TO AN INCREASE IN EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. A
LOSS OF THE CLEAR EYE FEATURE PREVIOUSLY EVIDENT IN WATER VAPOR AND
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY HAS ACCOMPANIED THIS WEAKENING. THE CYCLONE
IS TRACKING WESTWARD AND SLIGHTLY EQUATORWARD UNDER THE STEERING
INFLUENCE OF A CONTINUOUS, ZONALLY-ORIENTED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE
SOUTH. THE FORECAST TRACK HAS BEEN NUDGED EQUATORWARD BASED ON CURRENT
STORM MOTION AND ANALYSIS OF THE STEERING RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. GENERALLY
WESTWARD TO WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD MOTION IS EXPECTED TO OCCUR THROUGH THE
FORECAST PERIOD AS THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE REMAINS THE PRIMARY STEERING
INFLUENCE. INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND DECREASING ALONG-TRACK
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES WILL DRIVE STEADY WEAKENING DURING THE NEXT 48
HOURS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 201200Z IS 30 FEET. NEXT
WARNINGS AT 210300Z AND 211500Z.//

211500Z POSITION NEAR 16.0S 99.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 22S (ILSA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 310 NM SOUTH-
EAST OF COCOS ISLAND, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS OVER THE PAST
SIX HOURS. THE CURRENT POSITION AND INTENSITY ESTIMATES ARE BASED ON
SATELLITE DVORAK FIXES FROM PGTW AND APRF. TC 22S HAS WEAKENED SLOWLY
OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. A 211041Z SSMI-S IMAGE INDICATES THAT THE
BROKEN RING OF DEEP CONVECTION CONTINUES TO PERSIST, AND DRY AIR
CONTINUES TO WRAP AROUND THE SYSTEM. WITHIN THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS
IT IS EXPECTED TO ISOLATE THE INNER CORE OF WARMER, MOISTER AIR AND
LEAD TO DEGRADATION OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE TO DECREASE QUICKLY OVER THE NEXT 24
HOURS AND WILL BECOME UNFAVORABLE AFTER TAU 24. THE CYCLONE IS
TRACKING WESTWARD AND SLIGHTLY EQUATORWARD UNDER THE STEERING
INFLUENCE OF A CONTINUOUS, ZONALLY-ORIENTED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE
SOUTH. GENERALLY WESTWARD TO WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD MOTION IS EXPECTED TO
MAINTAIN THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD AS THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE REMAINS

DRIVE STEADY WEAKENING DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT

REMARKS:
220300Z POSITION NEAR 16.1S 99.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 22S (ILSA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 280 NM SOUTH-
EAST OF COCOS ISLAND, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 05 KNOTS OVER THE PAST
SIX HOURS. THE CURRENT POSITION AND INTENSITY ESTIMATES ARE BASED ON
SATELLITE DVORAK FIXES FROM PGTW AND APRF. TC 22S HAS MAINTAINED
INTENSITY OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. A 220027Z SSMI-S IMAGE INDICATES A
BAND OF DEEP CONVECTION TIGHTLY WRAPPED INTO THE LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) AND DRY AIR ENCIRCLING THE SYSTEM. WITHIN
THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS IT IS EXPECTED TO ISOLATE THE INNER CORE OF
WARMER, MOISTER AIR AND LEAD TO DEGRADATION OF THE LLCC. SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE TO DECREASE AND VERTICAL WIND SHEAR WILL
INCREASE OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS AND BOTH WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THE
WEAKENING OF THE SYSTEM AFTER TAU 12. THE CYCLONE IS TRACKING
WESTWARD AND SLIGHTLY EQUATORWARD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A
CONTINUOUS, ZONALLY-ORIENTED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) TO THE SOUTH.
GENERALLY WESTWARD TO WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD MOTION IS EXPECTED TO
MAINTAIN THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD DUE TO THE INFLUENCE OF TH STR.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 220000Z IS 28 FEET.
NEXT WARNINGS AT 221500Z AND 230300Z.

REMARKS:
222100Z POSITION NEAR 17.3S 96.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 22S (ILSA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 310 NM SOUTH
OF COCOS ISLAND, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. OVER THE LAST 6 HOURS TC 22S HAS DROPPED IN
INTENSITY AS INCREASING AMOUNTS OF DRY AIR BECOME ENTRAINED IN THE
CIRCULATION AND SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES CONTINUE TO FALL. ANIMATED
INFRARED IMAGERY DEPICTS A LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) THAT
HAS MAINTAINED ORGANIZATION BUT WITH DIMINISHED CONVECTION OVER THE
LAST 6 HOURS. A 221628Z TRMM IMAGE SHOWS A CONVECTIVE MAXIMUM TO THE
NORTH OF THE LLCC WITH DRY AIR SURROUNDING THE CORE CIRCULATION.
UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT ILSA IS LOCATED NEAR AN UPPER
LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AXIS IN A REGION OF GOOD
DIFFLUENT FLOW AND LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. ILSA IS CURRENTLY
TRACKING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AS THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE BEGINS TO RE-
ORIENT AS A SHORTWAVE TROUGH HAS TRACKED THROUGH THE MID-LATITUDES
SOUTH OF TC 22S. INTENSITY WILL CONTINUE TO WEAKEN DUE TO A
COMBINATION OF UNFAVORABLE SURFACE CONDITIONS AND DRY AIR
ENTRAINMENT. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 221800Z IS 21 FEET.
NEXT WARNINGS AT 230900Z AND 232100Z.

230900Z POSITION NEAR 17.6S 93.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 22S (ILSA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 365 NM SOUTH-
SOUTHWEST OF COCOS ISLAND, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 12 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS TC 22S HAS CONTINUED

232100Z POSITION NEAR 18.6S 91.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 22S (ILSA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 470 NM SOUTH-
WEST OF COCOS ISLAND, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. TC 22S CONTINUES TO WEAKEN UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF
MODERATE EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND DECREASING ALONG-TRACK SEA
SURFACE TEMPERATURES. THE CYCLONE IS TRACKING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD
ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE.
PERSISTENT VERTICAL WIND SHEAR, PASSAGE OVER COOLER WATER, AND
ENTRAINMENT OF DRIER AIR LOCATED POLEWARD OF THE LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER WILL WEAKEN THE SYSTEM BELOW THE 35 KNOT WARNING
THRESHOLD BY TAU 12. THEREFORE, THIS IS THE FINAL WARNING ON THIS
SYSTEM BY THE JOINT TYPHOON WARNING CENTER (NAVMARFCSTCEN). THE
SYSTEM WILL BE CLOSELY MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF REGENERATION. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 231800Z IS 18 FEET.//
