SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
140 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 11.1S 172.8W TO 12.4S 176.0W
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 30 TO 35 KNOTS. METSAT IM-
AGERY AT 101800Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 11.2S 173.4W. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 03
KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 11.4S
172.4E IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 11.2S 173.4W, APPROXIMATELY 245 NM
NORTHWEST OF PAGO PAGO. RECENT ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY INDICATES CONSOLIDATION OF DEEP CONVECTION ABOUT A
DEVELOPING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. SEA LEVEL PRESSURE
THROUGHOUT THE SAMOAN ISLANDS GENERALLY RANGES FROM 1006 TO 1007 MB
WITH NO SIGNIFICANT 24-HOUR PRESSURE TRENDS. THE DISTURBANCE HAS
CONTINUED TO STRENGTHEN DESPITE MARGINAL CONDITIONS ALOFT. A TROUGH
THAT HAD BUILT INTO THE SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM LESS THAN 12 HOURS AGO
IS CURRENTLY SUPPRESSING CLOUD GROWTH IN THE SOUTHERN SEMICIRCLE.
HOWEVER, A DIFFLUENT SOURCE REGION TO THE NORTHEAST IS PROVIDING
FAVORABLE EQUATORWARD VENTING. 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 GOOD.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
112230Z.//

REMARKS:
111500Z POSITION NEAR 11.0S 175.6W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (NINETEEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 340 NM
NORTHWEST OF PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 07 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS
INCREASED CONVECTIVE BANDING AROUND A DEVELOPING LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) AND A 110655Z ASCAT PASS REVEALS A BAND OF
30-KNOT WINDS IN THE NORTHERN SEMI-CIRCLE THAT IS STARTING TO WRAP
INTO THE SYSTEM CENTER. ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM
HAS A POINT-SOURCE ALOFT WITH WEAK VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND STRONG
EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. ADDITIONALLY, AN UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH SOUTHWEST
OF THE SYSTEM HAS HELPED POLEWARD OUTFLOW THOUGH IT HAS ALSO
SUPPRESSED DEEP CONVECTION IN THE SOUTHERN SEMI-CIRCLE. CURRENT
POSITION AND INTENSITY ESTIMATES ARE BASED ON DVORAK FIXES FROM
PGTW, PHFO AND NFFN. THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD, TC 19P WILL
CONTINUE TO TRACK ALONG THE PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL STEERING
RIDGE LOCATED TO THE SOUTH-SOUTHWEST. BY TAU 36, A MID-LATITUDE
TROUGH IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN WEAKENING THE STEERING RIDGE, ENABLING
THE SYSTEM TO RE-CURVE AFTER TAU 72. BY TAU 120, TC 19P SHOULD START
TO INTERACT WITH THE MID-LATITUDE BAROCLINIC ZONE. AS FOR THE
INTENSITY FORECAST, TC 19P WILL STEADILY INTENSIFY OVER THE NEXT 72
HOURS DUE TO VERY GOOD OUTFLOW, LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR, AND
FAVORABLE OCEAN HEAT CONTENT VALUES. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO REACH
A MAXIMUM INTENSITY OF 105 KNOTS AS IT APPROACHES THE SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE AXIS AND THE POLEWARD OUTFLOW IS ENHANCED BY THE MID-LATITUDE
JETSTREAM. AFTER THE SYSTEM ROUNDS THE RIDGE AXIS, IT WILL START TO
WEAKEN AS IT ENCOUNTERS COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND
INCREASINGLY UNFAVORABLE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. THE NUMERICAL MODEL
GUIDANCE IS IN VERY GOOD AGREEMENT WITH A RE-CURVE SCENARIO. THIS
WARNING SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS REF A (WTPS22 PGTW 102230). MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 111200Z IS 11 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
120300Z AND 121500Z.//

REMARKS:
120300Z POSITION NEAR 10.7S 177.4W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (NINETEEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 485 NM
WEST-NORTHWEST OF PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 07 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
INDICATES A STRENGTHENING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER BENEATH
BUDDING CENTRAL CONVECTION. CONVECTIVE BANDING HAS IMPROVED IN
NEARLY ALL QUADRANTS OF THE CIRCULATION, THOUGH DEEP CONVECTION IS
STILL LIMITED WITHIN THE SOUTHERN SEMICIRCLE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY
IS BASED ON DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND KNES, WHICH
BOTH INDICATE A 35 KNOT SYSTEM. NFFN IS ASSESSING THE INTENSITY
SLIGHTLY HIGHER AT 40 KNOTS. THE CYCLONE IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO
TRACK ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A STEERING RIDGE TO THE
SOUTHEAST. THE TRACK WILL BEND TOWARDS FIJI AS A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH
DEEPENS EQUATORWARD AND WEAKENS THE STEERING RIDGE. BEYOND FIJI THE
CYCLONE WILL BEGIN TO ACCELERATE WITH THE TROUGH TOWARDS THE MID-
LATITUDES. THE INTENSITY FORECAST CALLS FOR STEADY INTENSIFICATION
THROUGH TAU 72. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES HOVERING NEAR 30C AND
STRONG RADIAL OUTFLOW ALOFT SHOULD SUPPORT THIS INTENSIFICATION. THE
CYCLONE SHOULD BEGIN TO WEAKEN THEREAFTER DUE TO INCREASED VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR AND MARGINAL SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES/OCEAN HEAT CONTENT.
THE MODEL CONSENSUS HAS SLOWED SINCE THE PREVIOUS FORECAST IN
RESPONSE TO THE ADDITION OF THE ECMWF TRACKER TO THE CONSENSUS
(WHICH IS NOW THE SLOWEST MEMBER AVAILABLE) AND A SLOWER GFS RUN.
EGRR REMAINS MUCH FASTER THAN THE REST OF THE MODEL PACKING. THE
OFFICIAL FORECAST HAS BEEN SLOWED TO REFLECT THE CONSENSUS. BECAUSE
THE FORECAST HAS BEEN SLOWED EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION HAS BEEN
DELAYED. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 120000Z IS 11 FEET. NEXT
WARNINGS AT 121500Z AND 130300Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 20P

REMARKS:
121500Z POSITION NEAR 11.6S 177.2W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (TOMAS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 500 NM
NORTHEAST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A
120716Z SSMIS MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS TIGHTLY-WRAPPED CONVECTIVE
BANDING AS WELL AS CONTINUED SUPPRESSION OF DEEP CONVECTION IN THE
SOUTHERN SEMI-CIRCLE DUE TO AN UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH LOCATED SOUTH OF
THE SYSTEM. DIRECTLY ALOFT OF TC 19P, HOWEVER, AN ANTICYCLONE IS
PROVIDING EXCELLENT EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. ACCORDINGLY, THE SYSTEM HAS
INTENSIFIED BY 20 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. CURRENT POSITION AND
INTENSITY ESTIMATES ARE BASED ON DVORAK FIXES FROM PGTW AND PHFO. TC
TOMAS WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK ALONG THE PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL
STEERING RIDGE TO THE SOUTH THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. THROUGH
TAU 72, THE SYSTEM WILL STEADILY INTENSIFY DUE TO STRONG OUTFLOW AND
HIGH OCEAN HEAT CONTENT (OHC) VALUES. AROUND TAU 72, TOMAS SHOULD
ROUND THE RIDGE AXIS AS A DIGGING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH WEAKENS THE
STEERING RIDGE AND ENABLES A RE-CURVE SCENARIO. AT THE SAME TIME,
TOMAS SHOULD ALSO REACH MAXIMUM INTENSITY AS POLEWARD OUTFLOW INTO
THE MID-LATITUDES INCREASES. BEYOND TAU 72, THE CYCLONE IS EXPECTED
TO GRADUALLY WEAKEN AS OHC VALUES FALL OFF AND UNFAVORABLE VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR INCREASES. THE MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN VERY GOOD AGREEMENT
WITH THE RE-CURVE SCENARIO. HOWEVER, THE NOGAPS, GFDN AND UKMO
MODELS INDICATE THE SYSTEM COULD TRACK A BIT FURTHER WEST BEFORE THE
SYSTEM RE-CURVES. THE MODELS ARE SHOWING THE MID-LATITUDE TROUGH
PUSHING QUICKLY EASTWARD, ENABLING THE RIDGE TO TEMPORARILY BUILD
BACK TO THE WEST BEFORE A SECOND MID-LATITUDE TROUGH PULLS THE
SYSTEM INTO THE MID-LATITUDES. THE FORECAST COMPENSATES FOR THIS
POSSIBILITY BY KEEPING THE SYSTEM SLOW AS IT APPROACHES AND ROUNDS
THE RIDGE AXIS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 121200Z IS 16
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 130300Z AND 131500Z. REFER TO TROPICAL
CYCLONE 20P (TWENTY) WARNINGS (WTPS31 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (TOMAS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 440 NM
NORTHEAST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
SHOWS TIGHTLY-WRAPPED CONVECTIVE BANDING AROUND A WELL-DEFINED LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES TC 19P IS
JUST TO THE SOUTH OF AN ANTICYCLONE THAT IS ENHANCING EXCELLENT
EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW, AS EVIDENCED IN ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY.
THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED IN SATELLITE ANIMATION WITH A HIGH
DEGREE OF CONFIDENCE. THE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES ARE BASED ON
DVORAK FIXES FROM PGTW AND PHFO. TC TOMAS WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK
ALONG THE PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE TO THE SOUTH
AND EAST THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. THROUGH TAU 72, THE SYSTEM
WILL STEADILY INTENSIFY DUE TO STRONG OUTFLOW AND HIGH OCEAN HEAT
CONTENT (OHC) VALUES. AFTER TAU 48, TOMAS SHOULD ROUND THE RIDGE AXIS
AS A DIGGING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH WEAKENS THE STEERING RIDGE AND
ENABLES A RE-CURVE SCENARIO. AT THE SAME TIME, THE SYSTEM SHOULD ALSO
REACH MAXIMUM INTENSITY AS POLEWARD OUTFLOW INTO THE MID-LATITUDES
INCREASES. BEYOND TAU 72, THE CYCLONE IS EXPECTED

131500Z POSITION NEAR 12.6S 179.0W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (TOMAS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 380 NM
NORTHEAST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS
CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER AND
A 130703Z SSMIS IMAGE SHOWS A DEFINED MICROWAVE EYE. THE INTENSITY
HAS NOT INCREASED AS EXPECTED IN THE PREVIOUS FORECAST AND REMAINS
AT 65 KNOTS BASED ON PGTW, ABRF, AND CPHC DVORAK INTENSITY
ESTIMATES. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS SHOWS THAT TC 19P IS LOCATED IN AN
AREA OF LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS), BENEATH AN AREA OF DIFFLUENCE
PROVIDING GOOD RADIAL OUTFLOW. TC 19P IS CURRENTLY TRACKING ON THE
NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE THAT IS
WEAKENING DUE TO A TRANSITORY MID-LATITUDE, UPPER LEVEL TROUGH. THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE WILL CONTINUE TO WEAKEN AND ALLOW TOMAS TO ROUND
THE RIDGE AXIS BY TAU 72 AND THEN BEGIN TO RECURVE TO THE SOUTHEAST.
TC 19P IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY THROUGH TAU 72, WHEN
OCEAN HEAT CONTENT WILL DECREASE AND VWS WILL INCREASE AS TOMAS
BEGINS TO INTERACT WITH THE BAROCLINIC ZONE. NUMERICAL MODEL
GUIDANCE IS IN AGREEMENT WITH THE RECURVATURE SCENARIO, HOWEVER THE
TIMING OF THE RECURVE DIFFERS SLIGHTLY. THE GFS MODEL IS AN OUTLIER
WITH A SHARPER TURN AND A SIGNIFICANTLY FASTER TRACK SPEED THAN THE
OTHER MODELS. THE CURRENT FORECAST IS BASED ON THE CONSENSUS OF
AVAILABLE GUIDANCE, WHICH INDICATES A TRACK OVER VANUA LEVU, FIJI
WITH SPEEDS SLIGHTLY SLOWER THAN CONSENSUS AT THE EXTENDED TAUS TO
ACCOUNT FOR GFS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 131200Z IS 19

REMARKS:
141500Z POSITION NEAR 14.8S 179.4W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (TOMAS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 270 NM
NORTHEAST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 04 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS
IMPROVED CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC). INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THIS TIGHTLY CURVED
BANDING. CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON PGTW AND PHFO DVORAK
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 100 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES AN
ANTICYCLONE ALOFT IS PROVIDING GOOD RADIAL OUTFLOW AND LOW VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR (VWS). TOMAS IS TRACKING ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF
THE SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE AND WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK SOUTHWARD
THROUGH TAU 48. AT THAT TIME, TC 19P WILL BEGIN TO ROUND THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) AXIS AND RECURVE TO THE SOUTHEAST. AS THE
SYSTEM TRACKS ALONG THE STR, INTENSITIES WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE
WITH LOW VWS AND HIGH OCEAN HEAT CONTENT (OHC). AFTER TAU 48, TC 19P
WILL ENCOUNTER HIGHER VWS ASSOCIATED WITH AN UPPER LEVEL MID-
LATITUDE TROUGH AND DECREASING OHC, WHICH WILL CAUSE INTENSITIES TO
DECREASE. BY TAU 96, TOMAS WILL BEGIN TO INTERACT WITH THE
BAROCLINIC ZONE AND THEN BY TAU 120 WILL TRANSITION TO AN
EXTRATROPICAL SYSTEM. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 141200Z IS
24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 150300Z AND 151500Z. REFER TO TROPICAL
CYCLONE 20P (ULUI) WARNINGS (WTPS31 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY
UPDATES.//

REMARKS:
151500Z POSITION NEAR 16.9S 179.7W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (TOMAS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 170 NM
EAST-NORTHEAST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 05 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS
CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER WITH
A 10 NM EYE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON PGTW, PHFO, KNES, AND
ABRF DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 115 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES AN ANTICYCLONE ALOFT IS PROVIDING LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
(VWS) AND GOOD RADIAL OUTFLOW. TOMAS IS CURRENTLY TRACKING SOUTHWARD
ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDE (STR) IN AN AREA
OF HIGH SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (>27 DEGREES CELSIUS). TC 19P IS
FORECAST TO BEGIN ROUNDING THE STR AXIS AFTER TAU 24 WHEN IT WILL
BEGIN TO INCREASE IN SPEED AND TURN SOUTHEASTWARD. THE SYSTEM WILL
BEGIN TO TRANSITION TO AN EXTRATROPICAL SYSTEM BY TAU 48 AND FULLY
BECOME EXTRATROPICAL BY TAU 72 AS TOMAS INTERACTS WITH THE
BAROCLINIC ZONE. INTENSITIES WILL WEAKEN AS TC 19P APPROACHES THE
WESTERLIES WITH INCREASING VWS AND DECREASING OHC. NUMERICAL MODEL
GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS FORECAST. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 151200Z IS 26 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
160300Z AND 161500Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 20P (ULUI) WARNINGS

REMARKS:
160300Z POSITION NEAR 18.9S 179.4W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (TOMAS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 180 NM EAST
OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX
HOURS. THOUGH THE SYSTEM HAS WEAKENED SLIGHTLY OVER THE PAST 12
HOURS, ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THE SYSTEM IS
STILL WELL ORGANIZED WITH STRONG RADIAL OUTFLOW AND A 20-NM RAGGED
EYE. TC TOMAS IS TRACKING ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE
SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE AND MAY BE SOUTH OF THE RIDGE AXIS. OVER
THE NEXT 48 HOURS THE SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK POLEWARD AND
STEADILY WEAKEN AS IT ENCOUNTERS UNFAVORABLE SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES AND INCREASED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. AFTER TAU 36 THE
CYCLONE SHOULD BEGIN TO INTERACT WITH THE APPROACHING BAROCLINIC
ZONE AND WILL COMPLETE EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION BY TAU 72. THE MODEL
GUIDANCE IS IN VERY GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE FORECAST SCENARIO.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 160000Z IS 26 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS

REMARKS:
162100Z POSITION NEAR 24.1S 177.0W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (TOMAS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 420 NM
SOUTHEAST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 18 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
AND A 161637Z SSMIS MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOW TC TOMAS HAS INTENSIFIED
SLIGHTLY OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS AS THE SYSTEM HAS RE-ESTABLISHED A
PARTIAL EYEWALL THROUGH THE SOUTHERN SEMI-CIRCLE AND DVORAK
ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND PHFO HAVE COME UP TO 115 KNOTS. TC TOMAS HAS
INTENSIFIED DUE TO AN ENHANCED POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL TO THE
SOUTHEAST CAUSED BY A DIGGING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH. TC TOMAS IS SOUTH
OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AXIS AND ACCELERATING INTO THE MID-LATITUDE
WESTERLIES. OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS, THE SYSTEM WILL QUICKLY UNDERGO
EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION AS IT ENCOUNTERS HOSTILE VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH THE MID-LATITUDE JETSTREAM, TRACKS OVER
UNFAVORABLE SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES, AND STARTS TO ENTRAIN DRY AIR
FROM THE SOUTHWEST. THE NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN VERY GOOD
AGREEMENT WITH THIS FORECAST SCENARIO. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 161800Z IS 26 FEET. NEXT WARNING AT 170900Z. REFER TO
TROPICAL CYCLONE 20P (ULUI) WARNINGS (WTPS31 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY
UPDATES.//

REMARKS:
170900Z POSITION NEAR 28.4S 173.1W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (TOMAS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 710 NM
SOUTHEAST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 27 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. TOMAS HAS BEGUN EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION
AND IS ACCELERATING POLEWARD. CONVECTION IS BECOMING BIASED TOWARDS
THE SOUTHEASTERN QUADRANT DUE TO MODERATE TO STRONG VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH A JET RUNNING ALONG 30S. SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES AND OCEAN HEAT CONTENT HAVE ALSO DROPPED BELOW
SUSTAINABLE LEVELS. DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM PGTW HAVE
PLUMMETED TO A 3.5/4.5 (55-77 KNOTS) FROM A 5.0/6.0 (90-115 KNOTS)
APPROXIMATELY 12 HOURS AGO. THE SYSTEM WILL COMPLETE EXTRATROPICAL
TRANSITION WITHIN THE NEXT 12 HOURS AS IT IS ABSORBED INTO A STRONG
BAROCLINIC BOUNDARY. 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 170600Z IS 23 FEET. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 20P
(ULUI) WARNINGS (WTPS31 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES.//
