MSGID/GENADMIN/NAVMARFCSTCEN PEARL HARBOR HI/JTWC//
SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
130 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 14.5S 126.5E TO 18.1S 120.0E
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 25 TO 30 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY
AND RADAR DATA AT 241200Z INDICATE THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS
LOCATED NEAR 14.7S 126.1E. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD
AT 05 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 14.5S
126.6E IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 14.7S 126.1E, APPROXIMATELY 305 NM WEST-
SOUTHWEST OF DARWIN AUSTRALIA. RECENT ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY AND A RADAR LOOP FROM WYNDHAM, AUSTRALIA DEPICT A DEVELOPING
LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH TIGHTLY CURVED CONVECTIVE
BANDING AND CONSOLIDATING CONVECTION ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN COAST OF
AUSTRALIA. AT 24/06Z, SURFACE OBSERVATIONS FROM TRUSCOTT SHOWED A
DECREASE IN SEA LEVEL PRESSURE (SLP) OF ALMOST 4 MB IN THE LAST 24
HOURS AND A MINIMUM SLP OF 999 MB WITH 25 TO 30 KNOT WINDS. MORE
RECENT OBSERVATIONS REVEAL INCREASING PRESSURE NEAR TRUSCOTT (1002
MB) AND DECREASING PRESSURE TO THE SOUTHWEST NEAR DOONGAN (999 MB),
SUGGESTING THE LLCC IS DRIFTING SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG THE COAST. UPPER
LEVEL ANALYSIS REVEALS THE SYSTEM IS EQUATORWARD OF THE RIDGE AXIS
IN A REGION OF MODERATE EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND DIFFLUENT
FLOW ALOFT. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO
30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 999 MB.
DUE TO INCREASED CONSOLIDATION OF THE LLCC AND OBSERVED PRESSURE
FALLS, 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
251230Z.//

REMARKS:
251500Z POSITION NEAR 17.6S 121.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (TEN). LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 525 NM
EAST-NORTHEAST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 15 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED WATER
VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS CONVECTION HAS DEEPENED AND CONSOLIDATED AROUND
THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER AS THE SYSTEM HAS MOVED OFF THE
COASTLINE INTO THE SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN OFF BROOME. THE SAME ANIMATION
SHOWS GOOD EQUATORWARD AND IMPROVING POLEWARD OUTFLOW. THE CURRENT
INTENSITY IS EXTRAPOLATED FROM A SURFACE OBSERVATION OF 30 KTS/996
MB JUST TO THE NORTH OF THE LLCC. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON
ANIMATED RADAR IMAGERY FROM BROOME. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES
THE SYSTEM IS JUST TO THE SOUTH OF A POINT SOURCE AND TO THE NORTH
OF A RIDGE AXIS ORIENTED WEST-EAST ALONG 23S LATITUDE. TC 10S IS
UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A DEEP-LAYERED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO
THE SOUTHEAST ANCHORED OVER CENTRAL AUSTRALIA. IT IS EXPECTED TO
CONTINUE TRACKING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AND GRADUALLY INTENSIFY OVER
THE NEXT 72 HOURS AS VERTICAL WIND SHEAR DECREASES TOWARDS THE RIDGE
AXIS. THE AVAILABLE NUMERICAL GUIDANCE ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH
THE SOLE EXCEPTION OF WBAR, WHICH UNREALISTICALLY TRACKS THE SYSTEM
INLAND INTO THE RIDGE. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS REF A,

REMARKS:
260300Z POSITION NEAR 19.2S 119.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (BIANCA). LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 380 NM
EAST-NORTHEAST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT
14 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. BECAUSE OF THE SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK
OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS, THE TRACK HAS BEEN SHIFTED SOUTH RESULTING
IN A CLOSER CPA TO LEARMONTH (36 NM NORTH AT 27/07Z); THE TIMING
REMAINS CONSISTENT WITH THE PREVIOUS WARNING. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY AND RADAR IMAGERY DEPICT A RAPIDLY CONSOLIDATING
LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH TIGHTLY-CURVED BANDING AND
A WELL DEFINED CENTER. A 260109Z TRMM 37 GHZ IMAGE SHOWS A MICROWAVE
EYE FEATURE SURROUNDED BY A LOW-LEVEL SYMMETRIC RING SIGNATURE
TYPICAL OF RAPIDLY INTENSIFYING SYSTEMS. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS
BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 35 TO 55 KNOTS AS WELL AS ON
26/00-01Z SURFACE OBSERVATIONS FROM BEDOUT ISLAND, LOCATED 60 NM
SOUTHWEST OF THE CENTER, INDICATE SUSTAINED EASTERLY WINDS OF 39-47
KNOTS WITH 995 MB SLP. TC 10S IS EXPECTED TO TRACK WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD TO SOUTHWESTWARD THROUGH TAU 48 UNDER THE STEERING
INFLUENCE OF A DEEP SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) POSITIONED OVER WESTERN
AUSTRALIA. AFTER TAU 48, THE SYSTEM WILL RE-CURVE SOUTHWARD AHEAD OF
A DEEP MIDLATITUDE SHORTWAVE TROUGH. MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD
AGREEMENT OVERALL WITH THE EXCEPTION OF GFDN, WHICH ERRONEOUSLY
TRACKS THE SYSTEM SOUTHWARD INTO THE STR AND RAPIDLY WEAKENS THE
SYSTEM OVER LAND. THIS FORECAST IS POSITIONED SLIGHTLY WEST OF THE
MODEL CONSENSUS (NOGAPS, GFS, ECMWF, UKMO, WBAR AND GFDN) DUE TO THE
POOR GFDN TRACK WHICH IS WELL EAST AND OUTSIDE THE AIDS ENVELOPE.
BASED ON THE HIGH SST AND OCEAN HEAT CONTENT VALUES, AND EXCELLENT
OUTFLOW THROUGH TAU 36, TC 10S IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY AT 30 KNOT
PER DAY RATE WITH A PEAK OF 90 KNOTS BY TAU 36. AFTER TAU 36, THE
SYSTEM WILL BEGIN TO MOVE OVER COOLER SST AND ENCOUNTER HIGH
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH THE MIDLATITUDE TROUGH. TC 10S
WILL BEGIN EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT) NEAR TAU 72 AND COMPLETE
ETT BY TAU 96. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 260000Z IS 11 FEET.

REMARKS:
260900Z POSITION NEAR 19.8S 117.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (BIANCA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 290 NM
NORTHEAST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT
15 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL IMAGERY
SHOWS THE SYSTEM HAS SIGNIFICANTLY DEEPENED AND CONSOLIDATED AS
RADIAL OUTFLOW CONTINUES TO IMPROVE. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON
ANIMATED RADAR IMAGERY FROM PORT HEDLAND, AUSTRALIA, DEPICTING A
WELL-DEFINED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) SURROUNDED BY HIGHLY
REFLECTIVE CONVECTION. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS SUPPORTED BY DVORAK
INTENSITY ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 50 TO 65 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS TRACKING TOWARDS A RIDGE AXIS IN AN AREA OF
DECREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). TC 10S IS UNDER THE STEERING
INFLUENCE OF A DEEP-LAYERED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE OVER SOUTH-CENTRAL
AUSTRALIA. IT IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE ALONG ITS TRACK AND FURTHER
INTENSIFY UP TO TAU 36 BEFORE IT BEGINS TO RECURVE TO THE SOUTHEAST
IN RESPONSE TO AN APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH. AT THAT POINT,
HIGHER VWS ASSOCIATED WITH THE STRONG WESTERLIES WILL BEGIN TO ERODE
THE SYSTEM AS IT ACCELERATES TOWARDS EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION (ET).
CONCURRENTLY, COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES WILL RAPIDLY WEAKEN THE
SYSTEM. TC BIANCA WILL COMPLETE ET BY TAU 72. THE AVAILABLE NUMERICAL
GUIDANCE ARE IN CLOSE AGREEMENT WITH THIS TRACK FORECAST, WITH THE
EXCEPTION OF GFDN ERRONEOUSLY REVERSING TRACK AT TAU 48 AND
CONSEQUENTLY SKEWING THE CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT
AT 260600Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 261500Z, 262100Z, 270300Z AND

REMARKS:
262100Z POSITION NEAR 19.7S 115.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (BIANCA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 200 NM
NORTH-NORTHEAST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 10
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. RADAR FROM DAMPIER, AUSTRALIA AND
ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOW A TIGHTLY WRAPPED, WELL-
DEFINED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. A 261806Z AMSU MICROWAVE IMAGE
DEPICTS AN EYE WITH THE DEEPEST CONVECTION ALONG THE WESTERN AND
NORTHERN PERIPHERIES. THERE IS GOOD CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL
POSITION, WHICH WAS BASED ON THE RADAR. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS
BASED ON PGTW, KNES, AND APRF DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 55 TO 77
KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL
DIVERGENCE AND POLEWARD OUTFLOW INTO AN UPPER LEVEL MID-LATITUDE
TROUGH TO THE SOUTHEAST. TC 10S IS CURRENTLY TRACKING ALONG THE
NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE CENTERED OVER
AUSTRALIA. AROUND TAU 36, AN UPPER LEVEL, MID-LATITUDE TROUGH IS
EXPECTED TO WEAKEN THE STEERING RIDGE AND TURN THE SYSTEM SOUTHWARD.
THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO THEN RECURVE INTO THE MID-LATITUDE
WESTERLIES AND COMPLETE EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION BY TAU 72.
AVAILABLE NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS
FORECAST. TC BIANCA IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY UNDER
IMPROVED OUFTLOW AND OCEANIC CONDITIONS. AFTER TAU 36, THE SYSTEM
SHOULD BEGIN TO WEAKEN AS SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES DROP BELOW 26
DEGREES CELSIUS AND VERTICAL WIND SHEAR INCREASES. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 261800Z IS 15 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
270300Z, 270900Z, 271500Z AND 272100Z.//

REMARKS:
270900Z POSITION NEAR 20.7S 113.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (BIANCA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 100 NM
NORTH OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 12
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY AND A RADAR LOOP FROM LEARMONTH DEPICT TIGHTLY CURVED
CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A 20 NM VISIBLE EYE. THERE IS HIGH
CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT POSITION BASED ON THE VISIBLE EYE. THE
CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 55 TO 77
KNOTS FROM PGTW, KNES, AND APRF. WIND RADII ARE BASED ON A 270205Z
ASCAT PASS AND OBSERVATIONS FROM LEARMONTH INDICATING WINDS GUSTING
UP TO 40 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES TC 10S IS LOCATED
JUST NORTH OF THE RIDGE AXIS IN A REGION OF MODERATE (20 KNOTS)
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND EXCELLENT RADIAL OUTFLOW. TC BIANCA IS
CURRENTLY TRACKING ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL
STEERING RIDGE CENTERED OVER AUSTRALIA. NEAR TAU 36, TC 10S IS
FORECAST TO SLOW AND BEGIN TO RECURVE TO THE SOUTHEAST AHEAD OF AN
APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH. TC BIANCA IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN
EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION (ET) AS IT ROUNDS THE RIDGE AXIS AND IS
FORECAST TO COMPLETE ET PRIOR TO TAU 72. TC 10S IS FORECAST TO
STEADILY INTENSIFY OVER THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS AS POLEWARD OUTFLOW
IMPROVES AHEAD OF THE MID-LATITUDE TROUGH AND SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES REMAIN FAVORABLE, BUT WILL GRADUALLY WEAKEN AFTER TAU
36 AS SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES BEING TO DROP OFF AND VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR INCREASES. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH
THE EXCEPTION OF NGPS AND GFDN WHICH INDICATE A WESTWARD TRACK AFTER
TAU 72, WHICH SEEMS UNLIKELY GIVEN THE APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE

REMARKS:
271500Z POSITION NEAR 21.2S 112.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (BIANCA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 100 NM
NORTH-NORTHWEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY, A RADAR LOOP FROM LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, AND A
271102Z CORIOLIS 37H MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOW TIGHTLY CURVED CONVECTIVE
BANDING WITH A CONCENTRIC EYE-WALL AND MICROWAVE EYE. THERE IS HIGH
CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT POSITION BASED ON THE AFOREMENTIONED
MICROWAVE IMAGE. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES
RANGING FROM 55 TO 77 KNOTS FROM PGTW, KNES, AND APRF. UPPER LEVEL
ANALYSIS SHOWS GOOD RADIAL OUTFLOW WITH IMPROVED OUTFLOW AHEAD OF A
TRANSITORY MID-LATITUDE TROUGH. THE SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY TRACKING
ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE
CENTERED OVER AUSTRALIA. TC 10S IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY SLIGHTLY
WITHIN THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS AS OUTFLOW AHEAD OF THE MID-LATITUDE
TROUGH CONTINUES TO IMPROVE AND SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES REMAIN
FAVORABLE. TC BIANCA IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION
BY 29/00Z AND WILL BE FULLY ABSORBED BY THE MID-LATITUDE WESTERLIES
BY 20/12Z. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS TIGHTLY PACKED, WITH THE
EXCEPTION OF NGPS AND GFDN WHICH CONTINUE TO TRACK THE SYSTEM
SOUTHWESTWARD INTO THE APPROACHING UPPER LEVEL TROUGH. BASED ON
THESE MODEL INCONSISTENCIES, THE CURRENT FORECAST TRACK IS SLIGHTLY
LEFT AND FASTER THEN MODEL CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 271200Z IS 23 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 280300Z AND 281500Z.//

REMARKS:
272100Z POSITION NEAR 22.8S 111.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (BIANCA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 100 NM
NORTHWEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 15
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
AND A RADAR LOOP FROM LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA SHOW SIGNIFICANTLY
IMPROVED DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A WELL-DEFINED LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE INITIAL POSITION WAS BASED ON
THE RADAR LOOP WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY WAS BASED
ON PGTW, KNES, AND APRF DVORAK ESTIMATES OF 90 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL
ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS LOCATED BENEATH THE SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE AXIS IN AN AREA OF FAVORABLE EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW AND A
POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL INTO A TRANSITORY MID-LATITUDE TROUGH. TC
10S IS CURRENTLY TRACKING ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A
SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE CENTERED OVER AUSTRALIA. AS AN UPPER
LEVEL, MID-LATITUDE TROUGH WEAKENS THE STEERING RIDGE, THE SYSTEM IS
FORECAST TO TURN POLEWARD AND RECURVE INTO THE WESTERLIES BY TAU 48.
TC BIANCA IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY WITHIN THE NEXT 12 HOURS DUE TO
THE FAVORABLE OUTFLOW. AFTER TAU 12, IT SHOULD BEGIN TO WEAKEN DUE
TO LOW SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
AND COMPLETE EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION BY TAU 48.  THE PREVIOUS
INTENSITY WAS RE-ANALYZED TO 75 KNOTS AND THE SYSTEM HAS RAPIDLY
INTENSIFIED WITHIN THE PAST 6 HOURS, THEREFORE, THE CURRENT FORECAST
INTENSITY IS HIGHER THAN THE PREVIOUS FORECAST. NUMERICAL MODEL
GUIDANCE IS TIGHTLY PACKED, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF GFDN, WHICH
CONTINUE TO TRACK THE SYSTEM SOUTHWESTWARD INTO THE APPROACHING
UPPER LEVEL TROUGH. BASED ON THESE MODEL INCONSISTENCIES, THE
CURRENT FORECAST TRACK IS SLIGHTLY LEFT AND FASTER THEN MODEL
CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 271800Z IS 26 FEET.

REMARKS:
280900Z POSITION NEAR 24.4S 108.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (BIANCA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 310 NM
WEST-SOUTHWEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT
15 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTI-SPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY INDICATES TC 10S HAS UNDERGONE RAPID INTENSIFICATION OVER
THE PAST 24 HOURS AND HAS DEVELOPED A ROUND 9 NM EYE WITH A
CONCENTRIC EYE WALL. THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT
POSITION BASED ON A 28/0532Z PGTW EYE FIX. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS
BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 102 TO 115 KNOTS FROM APRF
AND PGTW. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES TC BIANCA IS LOCATED UNDER
THE RIDGE AXIS WITH GOOD EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW AND ENHANCED POLEWARD
OUTFLOW AHEAD OF TRANSITORY MID-LATITUDE TROUGH. TC 10S IS CURRENTLY
TRACKING ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A DEEP-LAYERED SUBTROPICAL
STEERING RIDGE CENTERED OVER AUSTRALIA. WITHIN THE NEXT 12 TO 24
HOURS, TC BIANCA SHOULD EXPERIENCE GRADUAL WEAKENING AS IT BEGINS TO
ENCOUNTER COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND INCREASED VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR. AS AN UPPER LEVEL, MID-LATITUDE TROUGH WEAKENS THE
STEERING RIDGE, THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO TURN POLEWARD BY TAU 24,
AND BE COMPLETELY ABSORBED INTO THE MID-LATITUDE WESTERLIES BEFORE
LANDFALL WITH SOUTHWESTERN AUSTRALIA. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN
GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS FORECAST, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF GFDN AND
NGPS WHICH DEPICT A NORTHWESTWARD TRACK AFTER TAU 48. THIS TRACK
SEEMS UNLIKELY GIVEN THE APPROACHING UPPER LEVEL TROUGH; THEREFORE
THIS FORECAST IS SLIGHTLY INSIDE AND FASTER THEN MODEL CONSENSUS.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 280600Z IS 30 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS
AT 282100Z AND 290900Z.//

REMARKS:
282100Z POSITION NEAR 27.2S 108.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (BIANCA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 520 NM
NORTHWEST OF PERTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT
14 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED (IR) SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS RAPIDLY ERODING DEEP CONVECTION RESULTING FROM THE
SYSTEM'S TRACK OVER COOL SST (24-25C). TC 10S, HOWEVER, HAS
MAINTAINED A STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL, ASSOCIATED WITH A
DEEPENING MIDLATITUDE SHORTWAVE TROUGH TO THE WEST, WHICH IS OFF-
SETTING THE COOL SST AND ALLOWING THE SYSTEM TO MAINTAIN A 20 NM EYE.
A 281747Z AMSU IMAGE DEPICTS A PARTIAL EYEWALL OVER THE WESTERN SEMI-
CIRCLE AND TIGHTLY-CURVED BANDING. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS ASSESSED
AT 75 KNOTS AND IS BASED ON THE DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES
FROM PGTW AND APRF OF 77 KNOTS. THERE IS GOOD CONFIDENCE IN THE
CURRENT POSITION BASED ON THE EYE FEATURE. TC 10S IS FORECAST TO RE-
CURVE AND WILL CONTINUE TO RAPIDLY WEAKEN DUE TO INCREASING VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR AND DECREASING SST (< 24C). THE SYSTEM WILL BEGIN EXTRA-
TROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT) WITHIN THE NEXT 12 HOURS AND WILL COMPLETE
ETT BETWEEN TAU 24-36. THERE IS A GOOD POSSIBILITY THAT THE REMNANTS
OF TC 10S WILL STALL NEAR TAU 36 OR TRACK NORTHWESTWARD UNDER
SOUTHEASTERLY FLOW ASSOCIATED WITH A STRONG LOW-LEVEL RIDGE FORECAST
TO BUILD OVER THE EASTERN INDIAN OCEAN. MODEL GUIDANCE IS
INCREASINGLY SUPPORTING THIS SCENARIO. REGARDLESS, TC 10S IS
FORECAST TO WEAKEN BELOW 35 KNOTS BY TAU 36. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 281800Z IS 25 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 290900Z AND

REMARKS:
290900Z POSITION NEAR 29.8S 109.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (BIANCA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 390 NM
WEST-NORTHWEST OF PERTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT
17 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS
THE SYSTEM HAS BEGUN TO ACCELERATE AND BECOME ELONGATED AS THE MAIN
CONVECTION IS DISPLACED TOWARDS THE SOUTHEAST QUADRANT. THE SAME
ANIMATION SHOWS EXCESSIVE POLEWARD OUTFLOW. THE CURRENT POSITION AND
INTENSITY ARE BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATE FIXES FROM PGTW AND KNES.
UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES TC 10S IS NOW ENTRENCHED IN THE
MID-LATITUDE TROUGH APPROACHING FROM THE WEST, EXPOSING THE SYSTEM TO
INCREASED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH THE PREVAILING
WESTERLIES. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES HAVE ALSO DECREASED TO BELOW
25C. TC BIANCA IS EXPECTED TO RAPIDLY DECAY, GIVEN THE HARSH
ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS, AND BECOME EXTRA-TROPICAL BY TAU 24. ITS
REMNANTS MAY STALL AND EVEN RECURVE NORTHWESTWARD AROUND THIS TIME
FRAME AS A LOW LEVEL RIDGE TO THE SOUTHWEST ASSUMES STEERING. MODEL
GUIDANCE IS INCREASINGLY SUPPORTING THIS SCENARIO. REGARDLESS, TC 10S
IS FORECAST TO WEAKEN TO BELOW 30 KNOTS BY TAU 24. MAXIMUM

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 10S (BIANCA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 265 NM
WEST OF PERTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 13 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
INDICATES THAT THE SYSTEM HAS CLEARLY COMMENCED EXTRA-TROPICAL
TRANSITION (ETT) WITH THE DEEP CONVECTION RAPIDLY DECAYING OVER
VERY COOL SST (< 22C) AND SHEARING SOUTHEAST OF THE DE-COUPLED
LLCC. TC 10S IS INTERACTING WITH A WEAK BAROCLINIC ZONE ASSOCIATED
WITH A DEEP SHORTWAVE TROUGH. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON
DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 35 TO 55 KNOTS AND A 291350Z ASCAT
IMAGE SUPPORTING 40-45 KNOT WINDS OVER THE EASTERN SEMI-CIRCLE.
THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO WEAKEN AS IT TRACKS SOUTH-
EASTWARD AND WILL COMPLETE ETT BY TAU 12. 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.
