SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 250 NM RADIUS OF 20.7S 178.3W WITHIN THE NEXT 12 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 230832Z INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 19.4S 178.0W.  THE SYSTEM IS
MOVING SOUTHWESTWARD AT 14 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS:
THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 19.2S 177.5W,
IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 19.5S 178.1W, APPROXIMATELY 275 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF NADI, FIJI. ANIMATED INFRARED IMAGERY DEPICTS
ORGANIZED DEEP CONVECTION AROUND THE EASTERN PERIPHERY OF THE LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON A
DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATE OF 30 KTS FROM PGTW AT 23/0832Z. 23/0000Z
UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS BENEATH AN ANTICYCLONE,
AND ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS ENHANCED EQUATORWARD AND
EASTWARD OUTFLOW. INCREASED CONVECTIVE BANDING EXTENDING TO THE
NORTH AND EAST OF THE LLCC IS EVIDENT ON A 23/0708Z SSMIS MICROWAVE
IMAGE. VERTICAL WIND SHEAR OF 10 TO 15 KNOTS AND SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES OF 28 TO 30 DEGREES CELSIUS ARE FAVORABLE FOR
DEVELOPMENT. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO
30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1003
MB. DUE TO INCREASED DEEP CONVECTION AND UPPER LEVEL OUTFLOW, 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
240930Z.//

THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS REF A, NAVMARFCSTCEN 230921Z
MAR 11 TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT (WTPS22 PGTW 230930).
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19P, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 200 NM SOUTHEAST
OF SUVA, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS DURING THE PAST
SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED IMAGERY SHOWS CONTINUING INTENSIFICATION
AND CONSOLIDATION OF CONVECTION AROUND THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC). A 231822Z 37GHZ SSMI IMAGE REVEALS ABUNDANT CURVED
BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE LLCC, ALTHOUGH DEEP CONVECTION IS
SUPPRESSED OVER THE WESTERN QUADRANT. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED
ON A DVORAK ESTIMATE OF 35 KNOTS FROM PGTW. WATER VAPOR ANIMATION
SHOWS AN APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH ENHANCING OUTFLOW
OVER THE SOUTHEASTERN QUADRANT, WHICH WILL ACT TO DEEPEN THE SYSTEM
OVER THE SHORT TERM. HOWEVER, THE TROUGH IS ALSO CAUSING SOME
INHIBITION OF OUTFLOW OVER THE WESTERN PORTION OF THE SYSTEM, BUT
OVERALL 19P EXISTS IN A REGION OF WEAK VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. TC 19P
IS CURRENTLY STEERING ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF AN ANTICYCLONE
TO THE SOUTHEAST BUT IS BEGINNING TO TAKE A MORE SOUTHERLY TRACK DUE
TO THE INFLUENCE OF THE ENCROACHING UPPER LEVEL TROUGH. THE TROUGH
IS NOT EXPECTED TO COUPLE WITH THE LLCC, WHICH WILL RESUME A
SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK AS THE TROUGH PASSES AFTER TAU 48. ADDITIONALLY,
STRONG VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH A DEEPER MID-LATITUDE
TROUGH, CURRENTLY MOVING OVER BRISBANE, WILL RAPIDLY WEAKEN AND
DISSIPATE THE SYSTEM AFTER BY TAU 72.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 231800Z IS 15 FEET.

REMARKS:
240900Z POSITION NEAR 21.3S 179.8W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (BUNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 260 NM
SOUTHEAST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 05 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
INDICATES A CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH
DEEP CONVECTION SURROUNDING THE WELL-DEFINED CENTER. ANIMATED WATER
VAPOR IMAGERY DEPICTS IMPROVING OUTFLOW, ESPECIALLY OVER THE WESTERN
SEMI-CIRCLE. A 240654Z SSMIS IMAGE ALSO SUPPORTS A CONSOLIDATING
SYSTEM WITH TIGHTLY-CURVED BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE CENTER AND
MULTIPLE CONVECTIVE BANDS OVER THE EASTERN SEMI-CIRCLE. THE CURRENT
POSITION IS BASED ON A 240538Z SSMIS AS WELL AS THE 240654Z SSMIS
WITH GOOD CONFIDENCE. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON DVORAK
ESTIMATES OF 45 KNOTS FROM PGTW, KNES AND ABRF. TC 19P IS TRACKING
SLOWLY SOUTHWARD ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE LOW- TO MID-
LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AND IS EXPECTED TO MAINTAIN A GENERALLY
SOUTHWARD TRACK THROUGH TAU 72. NEAR TAU 72, TC 19P IS EXPECTED TO
TURN SOUTHEASTWARD AND TO ACCELERATE AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING DEEP
MIDLATITUDE SHORTWAVE TROUGH. THE BULK OF THE DYNAMIC MODELS SUPPORT
THIS TRACK TO INCLUDE UKMO, GFS, GFDN, ECMWF AND WBAR, ALTHOUGH
THERE IS POOR AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE MODELS. THE NOGAPS MODEL IS THE
SOLE OUTLIER WITH AN UNREALISTIC WESTWARD TRACK THROUGH TAU 120 THAT
SOMEHOW STEERS THE SYSTEM WESTWARD DESPITE THE DEEP TROUGH DIGGING
TO THE SYSTEM'S SOUTH. THE UKMO AND GFDN MODELS HAVE INDICATED A
WESTWARD TO SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK THROUGH TAU 72 BUT HAVE BEEN
SHIFTING EASTWARD OVER THE PAST FEW RUNS. THIS FORECAST IS
POSITIONED ON THE EASTERN EDGE OF THE AIDS ENVELOPE CLOSER TO THE
GFS AND ECMWF SOLUTIONS, WHICH APPEAR MORE REALISTIC. PEAK INTENSITY
HAS BEEN INCREASED TO 75 KNOTS BY TAU 72 DUE TO GENERALLY FAVORABLE
CONDITIONS TO INCLUDE FAVORABLE SST, LOW TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR AND GOOD OUTFLOW. AFTER TAU 72, TC 19P IS FORECAST TO BEGIN
EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT) AS IT INTERACTS WITH THE BAROCLINIC
ZONE ASSOCIATED WITH THE AFOREMENTIONED TROUGH. TC 19P IS EXPECTED
TO COMPLETE ETT BY TAU 120. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
240600Z IS 15 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 242100Z AND 250900Z.//

REMARKS:
242100Z POSITION NEAR 21.8S 179.6W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (BUNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 280 NM
SOUTHEAST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
REVEALS ORGANIZED DEEP CONVECTION CONSOLIDATING AROUND A LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 241810Z 37GHZ SSMI IMAGE REVEALS
EXTENSIVE CURVED BANDING AROUND THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER AS
WELL AS A PERSISTENT MICROWAVE EYE FEATURE. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY INDICATES THAT INTERACTION WITH A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH ON THE
POLEWARD SIDE OF THE CYCLONE AND AN UPPER LEVEL LOW TO THE NORTHWEST
ARE SIGNIFICANTLY ENHANCING POLEWARD OUTFLOW. HOWEVER, SOME
SUBSIDENCE INDUCED BY A WEAK UPPER LEVEL TROUGH PERSISTS OVER THE
WESTERN PORTION OF THE CYCLONE. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON
DVORAK ESTIMATES OF 65 KNOTS FROM PGTW AND KNES. TC 19P IS EXPECTED
TO TRACK SLOWLY SOUTHWARD AND THEN SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG A SUBTROPICAL
STEERING RIDGE EXTENSION TO THE SOUTH THROUGH TAU 72. TC 19P IS
EXPECTED TO CONTINUE INTENSIFYING OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS DUE TO
FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL OUTFLOW AND PASSAGE OVER WARM WATER. HOWEVER,
SLOW MOVEMENT OVER A SHALLOW LAYER OF MARGINALLY FAVORABLE SEA
SURFACE TEMPERATURES (27 DEGREES CELSIUS) COUPLED WITH SUBSIDENCE
ASSOCIATED WITH AN INDUCED UPPER LEVEL TROUGH ON THE SOUTHWEST SIDE
OF THE SYSTEM WILL CAP THE INTENSIFICATION OF TC 19P AFTER TAU.
AROUND TAU 72, TC 19P WILL TURN POLEWARD AND ACCELERATE TO THE
SOUTHEAST IN RESPONSE TO AN APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH.
COINCIDENT WITH THE SOUTHEASTWARD TURN, TC 19P WILL WEAKEN AS IT
MOVES INTO A HIGH VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ENVIRONMENT AND OVER A COOLER
SEA SURFACE. BETWEEN TAU 96 AND TAU 120, TC 19P WILL INTERACT WITH
THE MID-LATITUDE FLOW PATTERN AND COMPLETE EXTRA-TROPICAL
TRANSITION, BECOMING A STORM FORCE LOW NORTHEAST OF NEW ZEALAND WITH
THE SUPPORT OF FAVORABLE BAROCLINIC DEVELOPMENT FACTORS. DYNAMIC
MODELS ARE COMING INTO BETTER AGREEMENT REGARDING THE TRACK, BUT
INTENSITY GUIDANCE CONTINUES TO LAG EXPECTED CONDITIONS. PEAK
INTENSITY HAS BEEN INCREASED TO 85 KNOTS BY TAU 24 DUE TO
ANTICIPATED FAVORABLE OUTFLOW ALOFT, PASSAGE OVER WARM WATER, AND
THE RECENT TREND. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 241800Z IS 20
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 250900Z AND 252100Z.//

REMARKS:
250900Z POSITION NEAR 22.5S 179.2W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (BUNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 340 NM
SOUTHEAST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 05 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
INDICATES THAT TC 19P HAS STRENGTHENED OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS
ALTHOUGH DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING HAS REMAINED FRAGMENTED OVER THE
WESTERN SEMI-CIRCLE DUE TO PERSISTENT UPPER-LEVEL TROUGHING AND
CONVERGENT FLOW. A 250554Z CORIOLIS IMAGE CONTINUES TO INDICATE
TIGHTLY-CURVED BANDING, PREDOMINANTLY OVER THE EASTERN SEMI-CIRCLE,
WRAPPING INTO A WELL-DEFINED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC)
WITH A SMALL MICROWAVE EYE FEATURE. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY
CONTINUES TO SHOW ENHANCED POLEWARD OUTFLOW ASSOCIATED WITH A
MIDLATITUDE SHORTWAVE TROUGH LOCATED ALONG 170W AND EXCELLENT
EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON DVORAK
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 77 KNOTS FROM PGTW AND KNES. BASED ON
THE CORIOLIS IMAGE, TC 19P HAS BEGUN TO SLOWLY TURN SOUTHWARD AND IS
FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTHWESTWARD THROUGH TAU 48 IN RESPONSE TO A
BUILDING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTHWEST. AFTER TAU 48, THE
SYSTEM WILL TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD AND ACCELERATE AHEAD OF AN
APPROACHING MIDLATITUDE SHORTWAVE TROUGH, CURRENTLY PUSHING EASTWARD
OFF THE COAST OF EASTERN AUSTRALIA. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN
FAIR AGREEMENT AND SUPPORTS THIS TRACK. TC 19P IS EXPECTED TO
INTENSIFY SLIGHTLY OVER THE NEXT 48 HOURS DUE TO FAVORABLE UPPER
LEVEL OUTFLOW AND PASSAGE OVER WARM WATER. HOWEVER, SLOW MOVEMENT
OVER A SHALLOW LAYER OF MARGINALLY FAVORABLE SST (27 DEGREES
CELSIUS) COUPLED WITH SUBSIDENCE ASSOCIATED WITH AN INDUCED UPPER
LEVEL TROUGH ON THE SOUTHWEST SIDE OF THE SYSTEM WILL CAP THE
INTENSIFICATION OF TC 19P AFTER TAU 24. AROUND TAU 72, TC 19P WILL
BEGIN EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT) AS IT INTERACTS WITH THE
BAROCLINIC ZONE, TRACKS OVER COOLER SST AND ENCOUNTERS INCREASING
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR, ALL OF WHICH WILL SERVE TO WEAKEN THE SYSTEM.
TC 19P IS FORECAST TO COMPLETE ETT BY TAU 96 BUT SHOULD MAINTAIN AS
A 45-55 KNOT EXTRA-TROPICAL LOW NORTHEAST OF NEW ZEALAND. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 250600Z IS 20 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT

REMARKS:
252100Z POSITION NEAR 23.0S 179.6W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (BUNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 340 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHEAST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 03
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
SHOWS WEAKENING DEEP CONVECTION WITHIN THE PAST 12 HOURS. A 251757Z
SSMIS 37H GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE DEPICTS AN ELONGATED LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER, FROM WHICH THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED. THE
INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON PGTW AND KNES DVORAK ESTIMATES OF 65
KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES GOOD EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW AND
SUPPRESSED OUTFLOW ALONG THE WESTERN AND SOUTHERN PERIPHERIES OF THE
SYSTEM DUE TO SUBSIDENCE ALOFT. TC 19P HAS SLOWLY TURNED SOUTH-
SOUTHWESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
(STR) THAT HAS BUILT IN TO THE SOUTH. BY TAU 24, THE SYSTEM IS
EXPECTED TO BEGIN TO TURN POLEWARD AS THE STR WEAKENS FROM A MID-
LATITUDE TROUGH. AROUND TAU 48, TC BUNE SHOULD BEGIN TO INTERACT
WITH THE BAROCLINIC ZONE AND BY TAU 72 IT IS EXPECTED TO COMPLETE
EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION. THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO MAINTAIN
INTENSITY UNTIL TAU 48, WHEN SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES DECREASE AND
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR INCREASES ASSOCIATED WITH THE APPROACHING MID-
LATITUDE TROUGH. MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT; THEREFORE THIS
FORECAST IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH MODEL CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 251800Z IS 24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
260900Z AND 262100Z.//

260600Z POSITION NEAR 23.0S 179.9W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (BUNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 345 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHEAST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS DRIFTED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 01
KNOT OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS PERSISTENT DEEP CONVECTION DURING THE PAST 12 HOURS.
POSITION CONFIDENCE IS HIGH BASED ON A 27 NM RAGGED EYE APPEARING AT
26/0532Z IN INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. A 26/0629Z SSMIS 37 GHZ
MICROWAVE IMAGE VERIFIES THIS POSITION AS WELL. INITIAL INTENSITY IS
BASED ON PGTW AND PHFO DVORAK ESTIMATES OF 65 KNOTS. WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY INDICATES RADIAL OUTFLOW, AND UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS PLACES
THE SYSTEM JUST EAST OF A WEAK UPPER LEVEL RIDGE WHICH IS AHEAD OF A
MUCH STRONGER TROUGH. TC 19P IS IN A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT AND
MOVING SLOWLY SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR). THE STRONG MID-LATITUDE TROUGH APPROACHING
FROM THE WEST WILL BEGIN TO ERODE THE STR AND RESULT IN THE SYSTEM
TRACKING MORE SOUTHWARD DURING THE NEXT 12-24 HOURS. AFTER TAU 36,
TC 19P IS EXPECTED TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD AND THEN BEGIN
EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION BY TAU 48. AS THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO TURN
SOUTHEASTWARD AHEAD OF THE TROUGH, INCREASED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND
DECREASED SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES WILL CAUSE THE SYSTEM TO WEAKEN
SLIGHTLY PRIOR TO COMPLETING EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION NEAR TAU 72.
MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS IN GOOD AGREEMENT, AND THIS FORECAST IS
CONSISTENT WITH THE PREVIOUS FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 260600Z IS 24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 262100Z AND 270600Z.//

REMARKS:
270900Z POSITION NEAR 24.8S 178.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (BUNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 430 NM
SOUTH OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST
SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS A
WEAKENING 40 NM CONVECTIVE BANDING EYE. ADDITIONALLY, A 270523Z SSMI
37 GHZ MICROWAVE SATELLITE IMAGE DEPICTS A WELL-DEFINED LOW LEVEL
EYE, FROM WHICH THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED WITH GOOD CONFIDENCE.
THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON PGTW, KNES, PHFO, AND NFFN DVORAK
INTENSITY ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 60 TO 77 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL
ANALYSIS INDICATES TC 19P IS LOCATED BENEATH AN AREA OF DIVERGENCE
WITH GOOD OUTFLOW IN MOST QUADRANTS. HOWEVER, SUBSIDENCE FROM AN
APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH HAS SLIGHTLY DECREASED OUTFLOW ON
THE WESTERN SEMICIRCLE DURING THE PAST SIX HOURS. FURTHER EVIDENCE
OF THIS APPROACHING TROUGH IS APPARENT AS THE SUBTROPICAL STEERING
RIDGE TO THE EAST OF TC BUNE HAS BEGUN ERODING AND IS ALLOWING THE
SYSTEM TO TAKE A MORE SOUTHWARD TRACK. WITHIN THE NEXT 12-24 HOURS,
TC 19P SHOULD BEGIN TRACKING SOUTHEASTWARD AS IT BEGINS TO INTERACT
WITH THE BAROCLINIC ZONE AND COMPLETES EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION
BETWEEN TAUS 36 AND 48. TC BUNE IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE WEAKENING AS
IT INTERACTS WITH INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND DECREASING SEA
SURFACE TEMPERATURES. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS IN EXCELLENT
AGREEMENT; THEREFORE THIS FORECAST IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE
MODEL CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 270600Z IS 22
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 272100Z AND 280900Z.//

280900Z POSITION NEAR 28.5S 178.1W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (BUNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 620 NM
NORTHEAST OF AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 15
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING AROUND A CENTRAL CORE
WITH THE STRONGEST CONVECTION CONCENTRATED ON THE SOUTHERN AND
EASTERN PERIPHERY. TC 19P IS SLOWLY TAKING ON EXTRATROPICAL
CHARACTERISTICS AS A 28/0507Z SSMI MICROWAVE SATELLITE IMAGE
INDICATES DRIER AIR WRAPPING AROUND THE WESTERN AND NORTHERN
SEMICIRCLE. WATER VAPOR IMAGERY CONTINUES TO SHOW DECREASING OUTFLOW
ON THE WESTERN SIDE OF THE SYSTEM WHILE INCREASING POLEWARD OUTFLOW
IS APPARENT ALONG AND AHEAD OF A TRANSITORY MID-LATITUDE TROUGH.
POSITION CONFIDENCE IS HIGH BASED ON A MICROWAVE EYE IN THE 28/0507Z
IMAGE. CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND
KNES RANGING FROM 45 TO 55 KNOTS. UPPER AIR ANALYSIS INDICATES GOOD
DIVERGENCE ALOFT TO THE SOUTH AND EAST OF TC 19P AS IT TRACKS SOUTH-
SOUTHEASTWARD AROUND THE WESTERN EXTENT OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE.
THIS STEERING RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO BUILD AND NUDGE TC BUNES TRACK
SLIGHTLY POLEWARD DURING THE NEXT 12-24 HOURS AS THE MID-LATITUDE
TROUGH PROGRESSES EASTWARD. TC BUNE IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN AS IT
COMPLETES EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION (ET) BY TAU 24 AND ENCOUNTERS
INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND DECREASING SEA SURFACE
