REMARKS:
230300Z POSITION NEAR 15.6S 149.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 09P (ANTHONY) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 190 NM
EAST-NORTHEASTWARD OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA HAS TRACKED EASTWARD AT 11
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY AND RADAR FROM WILLIS ISLAND DEPICT TIGHTLY WRAPPED
CONVECTIVE BANDING. INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS A SIGNIFICANT
INCREASE IN DEEP CONVECTION WITHIN THE PAST 6 HOURS. THERE WAS FAIR
CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION BASED ON THE RADAR. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY WAS BASED ON PGTW, KNES, AND ABRF DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING
FROM 35 TO 45 KNOTS. ADDITIONALLY, NEARBY OBSERVATION STATIONS ARE
REPORTING SEA LEVEL PRESSURES AS LOW AS 997 MB. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES TC 09P IS LOCATED BENEATH THE RIDGE AXIS WITH GOOD RADIAL
OUTFLOW AND LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. TC ANTHONY IS CURRENTLY
TRACKING UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO
THE NORTH AND SHOULD CONTINUE UNTIL AROUND TAU 36 WHEN A SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE TO THE SOUTH WILL STRENGTHEN AND BECOME THE DOMINANT STEERING
INFLUENCE. AT THIS TIME, THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO SLOW UNDER A
COMPETING STEERING ENVIRONMENT AND THEN TRACK BACK WESTWARD. TC 09P
SHOULD INITIALLY INTENSIFY DUE TO INCREASED POLEWARD OUTFLOW INTO A
MID-LATITUDE UPPER LEVEL TROUGH CURRENTLY LOCATED TO THE SOUTH, THEN
SHOULD STEADILY INTENSIFY THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD UNDER
FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL CONDITIONS AND HIGH OCEAN HEAT CONTENT.
NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO
EXCEPT FOR WBAR, GFDN, AND UKMO WHICH CONTINUE TRACKING THE SYSTEM
EASTWARD. THIS IS UNLIKELY BECAUSE OF THE EXPECTED STRENGTH OF THE
STEERING RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
230000Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 231500Z AND 240300Z. REFER TO
TROPICAL CYCLONE 08P (WILMA) WARNINGS (WTPS31 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-
HOURLY UPDATES.//

REMARKS:
231500Z POSITION NEAR 16.7S 153.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 09P (ANTHONY) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 420 NM
EAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 22 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED MICROWAVE IMAGERY AND A
231056Z AMSU MICROWAVE IMAGE DEPICT TIGHTLY CURVED BANDING WRAPPING
INTO THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH ENHANCED DEEP
CONVECTION OVER THE SYSTEM CENTER. A 231057Z PARTIAL ASCAT PASS
CONFIRMS THE CURRENT POSITION WITH FAIR CONFIDENCE AND REVEALS 40
KNOT WIND BARBS NEAR THE SYSTEM CENTER. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS
BASED ON THE AFOREMENTIONED ASCAT PASS AND THE HIGHER END OF DVORAK
INTENSITY ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 30 TO 55 KNOTS FROM KNES, PGTW, AND
ABRF.  UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS SLIGHTLY
POLEWARD OF THE RIDGE AXIS IN AN AREA OF MODERATE VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR (20 KNOTS) AND STRONG DIFFLUENCE ALOFT. TC ANTHONY IS RAPIDLY
TRACKING EASTWARD ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE NEAR
EQUATORIAL RIDGE AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO FOR THE NEXT 24 TO 36
HOURS.  AS A DEEP LAYERED SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE BUILDS TO THE
SOUTH AND BECOMES THE DOMINANT STEERING MECHANISM, TC 09P WILL
SLOWLY TURN BACK TO THE WEST AND MAINTAIN A GENERALLY WESTWARD TRACK
THROUGH TAU 120. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY THROUGHOUT THE
FORECAST PERIOD AS IT CONTINUES TO TRACK ALONG HIGH SST AND OHC
VALUES AND MAINTAINS GOOD UPPER LEVEL SUPPORT. NUMERICAL MODEL
GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THE TIMING OF THE TURN BACK TO
THE WEST. WBAR AND GFDN REMAIN OUTLIERS, DRIVING THE SYSTEM
ERRONEOUSLY SOUTHWARD AFTER TAU 48 INTO THE BUILDING SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE. THIS FORECAST IS SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF THE PREVIOUS FORECAST
TRACK BUT IS CONSISTENT WITH A SLIGHT SHIFT IN MODEL TRACKERS, WHICH
ARE NOW FAVORING A LOOP TO THE SOUTH OF THE CURRENT TRACK. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 231200Z IS 15 FEET.

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 09P (ANTHONY) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 635 NM
EAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 22 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL IMAGERY INDICATES
THE DEEP CONVECTION HAS SHEARED 100 NM TO THE SOUTHEAST OF A

WAS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION DUE TO THE UNORGANIZED
LLCC. THE INITIAL INTENSITY WAS BASED ON PGTW, ABRF, AND KNES DVORAK
ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 35 TO 45 KNOTS. AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH TO THE
EAST HAS DEEPENED MORE THAN PREVIOUSLY EXPECTED AND CAUSED AN
INCREASE IN VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). WITH THE HIGH VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR, TC 09P SHOULD NOW CONTINUE TO WEAKEN AND DISSIPATE BELOW 35
KNOTS WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS. AFTER THE UPPER LEVEL TROUGH PASSES,
THE LOW LEVEL STEERING RIDGE TO THE SOUTH IS EXPECTED TO BUILD AND
TURN THE SYSTEM BACK WESTWARD. THE CURRENT FORECAST PHILOSOPHY HAS
CHANGED FROM THE PREVIOUS FORECAST.  THE ALTERNATE SCENARIO IS STILL
POSSIBLE WHERE TC 09P WILL RE-INTENSIFY AFTER THE PASSAGE OF THE
UPPER LEVEL TROUGH AS SOME OF THE MODELS ARE STILL INDICATING.
HOWEVER, WITH THE CURRENT MAGNITUDE OF THE TROUGH, THIS SCENARIO IS
UNLIKELY. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 240000Z IS 13 FEET.

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 09P (ANTHONY) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 820 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD
AT 15 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY AND A 221034Z AMSU MICROWAVE PASS SHOW CONVECTIVE BANDING
WRAPPING INTO THE SYSTEM FROM THE NORTHEASTERN QUADRANT AND DEEP
CONVECTION BEGINNING TO RECONSOLIDATE OVER THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC). THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES
RANGING FROM 30 TO 45 KNOTS FROM ABRF, KNES, AND PGTW, AS WELL AS A
241038Z ASCAT PASS SHOWING A WELL DEFINED LLCC WITH 35 KNOT WINDS AT
THE CENTER AND 40 KNOT WINDS ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY WITHIN THE
DEEPEST CONVECTION. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES HIGH VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH A DEEP TROUGH EXTENDING UP INTO THE CORAL
SEA. TC 09P IS CURRENTLY TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF A
NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE, BUT IS EXPECTED TO TURN BACK TO THE WEST
WITHIN THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS AS THE SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE
EXTENDING OVER EASTERN AUSTRALIA BECOMES THE DOMINATE STEERING
MECHANISM. TC ANTHONY IS FORECAST TO MAINTAIN INTENSITY THROUGH TAU
48 AND DISSIPATE AS A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE BY TAU 72 AS A
CUT-OFF LOW CAUSES SUBSIDENCE ALOFT AND HINDERS OUTFLOW. NUMERICAL
MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE TIMING OF THE TURN BACK
TO THE WEST, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF WBAR WHICH DEPICTS A LATER TURN
JUST SOUTH OF NEW CALEDONIA. INTENSITY GUIDANCE SUGGESTS AN
ALTERNATE SCENARIO IN WHICH TC 09P RE-INTENSIFIES AS IT TRACKS
WESTWARD AFTER THE PASSAGE OF THE UPPER LEVEL TROUGH. THIS SCENARIO
SEEMS UNLIKELY GIVEN THE HIGH AMPLITUDE PATTERN OF THE TROUGH AND
ASSOCIATED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. THIS FORECAST IS CONSISTENT WITH THE
PREVIOUS FORECAST TRACK AND IS WITHIN THE TIGHTLY CLUSTERED AIDS
PACKAGE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 241200Z IS 13 FEET.

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 09P (ANTHONY) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 865 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD
AT 07 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. TC 09P HAS WEAKENED OVER THE
PAST 06 HOURS AND HAS BEGUN TO SLOW AND TURN WESTWARD; MOTION OVER

PERIPHERY OF THE SYSTEM. A 242259Z TRMM IMAGE SHOWS THE
CORRESPONDING AREA OF DRY AIR ALONG THE PERIPHERY OF THE CIRCULATION
FROM THE SOUTH THROUGH THE NORTHWEST QUADRANT. TC 09P IS LOCATED
WITHIN A WEAK LOW-LEVEL STEERING ENVIRONMENT, HOWEVER, A DEEP
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) IS BUILDING OVER EASTERN AUSTRALIA AND IS
EXPECTED TO PROVIDE A WESTWARD STEERING INFLUENCE THROUGH THE
FORECAST PERIOD. MODEL GUIDANCE (ECMWF, GFS, NOGAPS, AND JGSM) IS IN
GOOD AGREEMENT EXCEPT FOR GFDN AND WBAR, WHICH INDICATE UNREALISTIC
TRACKS CONSIDERING THE BUILDING STR SOUTH AND SOUTHWEST OF THE
SYSTEM. THIS FORECAST IS CONSISTENT WITH THE PREVIOUS FORECAST AND

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 09P (ANTHONY), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 355 NM
WEST-NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS BECOME QUASI-STATIONARY
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS
CONVECTION HAS FLARED OVER THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER IN
RESPONSE TO THE WEAKENED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). HOWEVER, DVORAK
INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND KNES HAVE COME DOWN TO 30 KNOTS. TC
09P IS COMPLETING ITS U-TURN WESTWARD AS A BUILDING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
