SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
180 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 18.6S 113.8E TO 24.2S 108.0E
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 20 TO 25 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY AT
150130Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 18.9S
113.2E.  THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 15 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 18.0S
117.4E IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 18.9S 113.2E, APPROXIMATELY 195 NM NORTH-
NORTHWEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS
THE SYSTEM HAS RAPIDLY CONSOLIDATED OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS WITH
FORMATIVE BANDING ALONG THE SOUTHERN SEMICIRCLE. THIS IS SUPPORTED BY
A 142135Z SSMIS MICROWAVE IMAGERY. THE SAME ANIMATION SHOWS GOOD
EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS
JUST TO THE NORTH OF A RIDGE AXIS IN AN AREA OF LOW TO MODERATE
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. RECENT SCATTEROMETRY PASSES OUTLINE A
WELL-DEFINED, ALBEIT BROAD, LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER WITH 20-25
KNOT UNFLAGGED WINDS AROUND THE OUTER RIM. NUMERICAL MODELS INCLUDING
ECMWF, NOGAPS, AND GFS ALL INDICATE SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT OVER THE
NEXT 12-24 HOURS. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 20-25
KNOTS AND MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE AT 1003 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR
THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24
HOURS ID UPGRADED TO GOOD.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
160230Z.//

REMARKS:
160300Z POSITION NEAR 19.1S 111.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 245 NM NORTHWEST OF
LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 05 KNOTS OVER THE PAST
SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS AN
ORGANIZED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH IMPROVED DEEP
CONVECTION. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON A 152238Z SSMIS
MICROWAVE SATELLITE IMAGE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON PGTW,
APRF, AND KNES DVORAK ESTIMATES OF 35 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS LOCATED BENEATH THE RIDGE AXIS IN AN AREA OF
LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. ADDITIONALLY, BOTH EQUATORWARD AND POLEWARD
OUTFLOW ARE FAVORABLE. THE SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY TRACKING SLOWLY
WESTWARD IN A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT, WHICH SHOULD REMAIN FOR THE
NEXT 24 HOURS. NEAR TAU 36, A STEERING RIDGE CENTERED TO THE
SOUTHEAST IS EXPECTED TO STRENGTHEN AND ALLOW TC 16S TO TRACK
POLEWARD. TC 16S IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY THROUGH TAU 72 WITH HIGH
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND IMPROVING OUTFLOW INTO AN APPROACHING
MID-LATITUDE TROUGH. AROUND TAU 96, LOWER SST'S AND INCREASED
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR WILL CAUSE THE SYSTEM TO BEGIN WEAKENING.
NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS SOMEWHAT SPREAD, BUT GENERALLY TRACK THE
SYSTEM SOUTHWARD.  ECMWF IS THE WESTERLY OUTLIER AND GFS TRACKS THE
SYSTEM CLOSER TO THE WEST COAST OF AUSTRALIA. THIS WARNING
SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS REF A, NAVMARFCSTCEN 150221Z FEB 11 TROPICAL
CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT (WTXS21 PGTW 150230) MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 160000Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 161500Z AND

REMARKS:
161500Z POSITION NEAR 18.9S 111.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (DIANNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 250 NM
NORTHWEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED NORTHEASTWARD AT 03
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE TC HAS BEEN NAMED DIANNE BY TCWC
PERTH. DIANNE CONTINUES TO DRIFT IN A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT
WHILE MODESTLY INTENSIFYING. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS 40 KNOTS AND
IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND APRF, WHICH INDICATE A 35
TO 45 KNOT SYSTEM. THE POSITION OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
WAS DETERMINED BY EXTRAPOLATION OF A 161111Z SSMIS MICROWAVE IMAGE.
THE TC WILL LIKELY MEANDER OFF THE NORTHWEST COAST OF AUSTRALIA FOR
THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS GIVEN THE ABSENCE OF A STRONG STEERING
MECHANISM. BEYOND 36 HOURS THE SYSTEM WILL SLOWLY BEGIN TO
ACCELERATE POLEWARD TOWARDS A DEEP LAYER TROUGH WHICH IS TRANSITING
THROUGH THE MID-LATITUDES. ONCE THIS TROUGH PUSHES DOWNSTREAM OF THE
CYCLONE NEAR DAY 4 OF THE FORECAST, THE STEERING RIDGE TO THE
SOUTHWEST WILL STRENGTHEN AND TRACK THE SYSTEM SLIGHTLY MORE
WESTWARD. ALL THE WHILE THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO STEADILY INTENSIFY
GIVEN FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS UNTIL TAU 72. THEREAFTER
DIANNE WILL WEAKEN AS VERTICAL WIND SHEAR INCREASES AND THE WATER
COOLS. ALL AVAILABLE MODEL GUIDANCE INDICATES A GENERAL, AND
INITIALLY SLOW, POLEWARD TRACK. GFS IS THE ONLY MODEL THAT DOES NOT
SWING THE TRACK BACK TO THE WEST AS THE RIDGE STRENGTHENS IN THE
LATER FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 161200Z IS
14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 170300Z AND 171500Z. REFER TO TROPICAL
CYCLONE 13S (BINGIZA) WARNINGS (WTXS31 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY
UPDATES. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 15S (CARLOS) WARNINGS (WTXS32

REMARKS:
170300Z POSITION NEAR 19.2S 111.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (DIANNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 220 NM
NORTHWEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT
02 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. DIANNE CONTINUES TO DRIFT IN A
WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT WITH LITTLE CHANGE IN INTENSITY. THE
INITIAL INTENSITY OF 40 KNOTS IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW
AND APRF, WHICH INDICATE A 35 TO 45 KNOT SYSTEM. THE CURRENT
POSITION WAS DETERMINED FROM A 16/2246Z TRMM MICROWAVE IMAGE
DEPICTING SPIRAL BANDING WRAPPING INTO A WELL-DEFINED LLCC. DIANNE
IS EXPECTED TO SLOWLY TRACK SOUTHWARD OFF THE NORTHWEST COAST OF
AUSTRALIA FOR THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS GIVEN THE ABSENCE OF A STRONG
STEERING MECHANISM. BEYOND 36 HOURS THE SYSTEM WILL SLOWLY BEGIN TO
ACCELERATE POLEWARD TOWARDS A DEEP LAYER TROUGH WHICH IS TRANSITING
THROUGH THE MID-LATITUDES. ONCE THIS TROUGH PUSHES DOWNSTREAM OF THE
CYCLONE, THE STEERING RIDGE TO THE SOUTHEAST WILL STRENGTHEN AND
TRACK THE SYSTEM SLIGHTLY WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED
TO STEADILY INTENSIFY AS VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) REMAINS LOW AND
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (SSTS) REMAIN HIGH UNTIL TAU 72.
THEREAFTER, DIANNE WILL BEGIN TO DISSIPATE AS VWS INCREASES AND SSTS
RAPIDLY DROP-OFF BELOW 26 DEGREES CELSIUS. AVAILABLE MODEL GUIDANCE
INDICATES A GENERAL, AND INITIALLY SLOW, POLEWARD TRACK.  AFTER TAU
48, MODELS BEGIN TO SPREAD IN BOTH SPEED AND DIRECTION OFF THE WEST
COAST OF AUSTRALIA. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 170000Z IS 19
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 171500Z AND 180300Z. REFER TO TROPICAL
CYCLONE 13S (BINGIZA) WARNINGS (WTXS31 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY
UPDATES. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 15S (CARLOS) WARNINGS (WTXS32

REMARKS:
171500Z POSITION NEAR 19.2S 110.6E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (DIANNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 260 NM
NORTHWEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS REMAINED QUASI-STATIONARY
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
DEPICTS A CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH
CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A DEFINED CENTER. A 171059Z SSMIS
37 GHZ IMAGE DEPICTED A MICROWAVE EYE FEATURE. THE CURRENT POSITION
IS BASED ON THE SSMIS IMAGE AS WELL AS A 171217Z AMSU IMAGE WITH
GOOD CONFIDENCE BASED ON THE MICROWAVE EYE FEATURE. THE CURRENT
INTENSITY IS BASED ON AN AVERAGE OF DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 45
TO 65 KNOTS. TC 16S IS POSITIONED BETWEEN TWO MID-LEVEL STEERING
RIDGES AND HAS, CONSEQUENTLY, TRACKED ERRATICALLY OVER THE PAST 12
HOURS. OVERALL, TC 16S IS EXPECTED TO TRACK SOUTHWARD THROUGH THE
PERIOD AND IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN WELL WEST OF THE AUSTRALIAN COAST.
HOWEVER, THERE IS A HIGH DEGREE OF UNCERTAINTY ON THE EXACT TRACK
WITH THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC MODELS (UKMO, NOGAPS, ECMWF, GFDN, GFS,
JGSM AND WBAR) IN FAIR AGREEMENT. THE BULK OF THE MODELS INDICATE A
SLOW SOUTHWARD TO SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK THROUGH TAU 36-48 UNDER THE
STEERING INFLUENCE OF AN EXTENSION OF THE WESTERN STEERING RIDGE TO
THE SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM. THE UKMO, WBAR AND JGSM SOLUTIONS INDICATE
A SOUTHWARD TO SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD TRACK WITH NO SIGNIFICANT RIDGING
SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM. THE MODELS CONTINUE TO DIVERGE AFTER TAU 48 BUT
GENERALLY INDICATE A SOUTHWARD TO SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD TRACK OVER
COOLER SST IN THE EXTENDED TAUS ASSOCIATED WITH THE APPROACH OF A
DEEP MIDLATITUDE TROUGH. TC 16S IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY UNDER
FAVORABLE CONDITIONS THROUGH TAU 72 AND SHOULD THEN WEAKEN RAPIDLY
DUE TO INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND COOLER SST. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 171200Z IS 19 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
180300Z AND 181500Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 13S (BINGIZA)
WARNINGS (WTXS31 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES. REFER TO TROPICAL

REMARKS:
180300Z POSITION NEAR 20.0S 110.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (DIANNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 255 NM
WEST-NORTHWEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS DRIFTED SLOWLY SOUTH-
SOUTHWESTWARD OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY AND A 180006Z 37H SSMIS MICROWAVE IMAGE DEPICT A MICROWAVE
EYE WITH TIGHTLY CURVED BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR SHOWS EXCELLENT RADIAL
OUTFLOW WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE SOUTHWESTERN QUADRANT. 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 65 KNOTS FROM PGTW, KNES, AND APRF. TC 16S IS
CURRENTLY POSITIONED BETWEEN TWO MID-LEVEL STEERING RIDGES CAUSING
SLOW MOVEMENT POLEWARD AND IS EXPECTED TO MAINTAIN A GENERALLY SLOW
AND SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK THROUGH TAU 48. AFTER TAU 48, A
TRANSITORY MID-LATITUDE TROUGH WILL HAVE PASSED , ALLOWING THE
STEERING RIDGE TO BUILD SOUTHWESTWARD AND THE SYSTEM TO TRACK WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD. NEAR TAU 120, AN UPSTREAM MID-LATITUDE TROUGH WILL
ERODE THE STEERING RIDGE AND ALLOW THE SYSTEM TO TURN POLEWARD
AGAIN. THERE IS A HIGH DEGREE OF UNCERTAINTY IN THE FORECAST TRACK
AFTER TAU 48, AS THE NUMERICAL MODELS DIVERGE SIGNIFICANTLY. TC 16S
IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY UNDER FAVORABLE CONDITIONS THROUGH TAU 72
AND SHOULD THEN WEAKEN RAPIDLY DUE TO INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
AND COOLER SSTS. THIS FORECAST TRACK IS SLIGHTLY WEST OF THE
PREVIOUS FORECAST TRACK BASED ON A MAJORITY OF THE DYNAMIC AIDS
(ECMWF, EGRR, NGPS, GFDN, AND GFS) SHIFTING WESTWARD, BUT REMAINS
CLOSE TO MODEL CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 180000Z
IS 23 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 181500Z AND 190300Z. REFER TO TROPICAL
CYCLONE 13S (BINGIZA) WARNINGS (WTXS31 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY

REMARKS:
181500Z POSITION NEAR 21.2S 108.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (DIANNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 305 NM
WEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS
A LARGE CLUSTER OF DEEP CONVECTION PERSISTING OVER THE CENTER WITH
THE BULK OF THE DEEP CONVECTION OVER THE NORTHERN SEMI-CIRCLE. A
181115Z CORIOLIS 37H IMAGE DEPICTS A SMALL MICROWAVE EYE FEATURE
WITH TIGHTLY-CURVED BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE CENTER, AND SUPPORTS
THE CURRENT POSITION WITH GOOD CONFIDENCE. THE CURRENT INTENSITY OF
65 KNOTS IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES OF 65 KNOTS FROM PGTW, KNES
AND APRF. TC 16S IS TRACKING SOUTHWESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING
INFLUENCE OF THE MID-LEVEL RIDGE POSITIONED TO THE SOUTHEAST BUT IS
EXPECTED TO DECREASE TRACK SPEED IN THE NEXT 12-24 HOURS AS THIS
RIDGE WEAKENS WITH THE PASSAGE OF A MIDLATITUDE SHORTWAVE TROUGH.
HOWEVER, THE WESTERN RIDGE IS FORECAST TO BUILD IN AFTER TAU 36 AND
SHOULD SHIFT EASTWARD AHEAD OF A DEEPER MIDLATITUDE SHORTWAVE
TROUGH, WHICH IS EXPECTED TO RE-CURVE THE SYSTEM SOUTHWARD TO
SOUTHEASTWARD AFTER TAU 72. DUE TO THE RAPIDLY EVOLVING STEERING
PATTERN, THERE IS SOME UNCERTAINTY IN THE TRACK AND TRACK SPEEDS
BETWEEN TAU 12-72. MODEL GUIDANCE REFLECTS THIS COMPLEX PATTERN WITH
INCREASING SPREAD AND SOLUTIONS VARYING FROM WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD TO
SOUTHWESTWARD. MODEL GUIDANCE IMPROVES AND IS TIGHTLY CLUSTERED
AFTER TAU 72 DUE TO THE RELATIVELY STRAIGHT FORWARD TRACK FORECAST
ASSOCIATED WITH THE AFOREMENTIONED DEEP TROUGH. TC 16S IS FORECAST
TO INTENSIFY TO A PEAK INTENSITY OF 105 KNOTS WITHIN THE NEXT 36
HOURS DUE TO FAVORABLE SST AND IMPROVING POLEWARD OUTFLOW BUT SHOULD
BEGIN TO WEAKEN AFTER TAU 48 AS IT TRACKS OVER COOLER SST. BY TAU 72-
96, TC 16S SHOULD ENCOUNTER INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AS WELL.
DIANNE SHOULD BEGIN EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT) NEAR TAU 96 AND
WILL COMPLETE ETT BY TAU 120. THE SYSTEM MAY WEAKEN QUICKER THAN
EXPECTED AND WEAKEN BELOW 35 KNOTS PRIOR TO COMPLETING ETT.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 181200Z IS 23 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS
AT 190300Z AND 191500Z.//

190300Z POSITION NEAR 21.7S 107.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (DIANNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 335 NM
WEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 05 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED WATER VAPOR SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS DEEP CONVECTION BECOMING MORE ORGANIZED OVER THE LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). AN 182112Z SSMI PASS CONFIRMS
INCREASED ORGANIZING, SHOWING TIGHTLY CURVED CONVECTION BANDING AND
A DEVELOPING EYE FEATURE. THE CURRENT POSITION ESTIMATE IS BASED ON
RECENT POSITION FIXES FROM PGTW AND APRF AND MICROWAVE IMAGERY. THE
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATE OF 80 KNOTS IS CONSISTENT WITH DVORAK T-
NUMBER ESTIMATES OF 4.5 FROM PGTW AND APRF. TC 16S IS TRACKING ALONG
THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE CENTERED OVER
AUSTRALIA. AS A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH CURRENTLY ANALYZED TO THE SOUTH
OF TC 16S TRANSLATES EASTWARD OVER THE NEXT 48 HOURS, A SECOND
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO BUILD TO THE SOUTH OF TC 16S AND
BECOME THE PRIMARY STEERING MECHANISM. BY TAU 72 ANOTHER MID-
LATITUDE TROUGH IS EXPECTED TO APPROACH FROM THE SOUTHWEST AND
WEAKEN THE STEERING RIDGE, INDUCING POLEWARD RECURVATURE. PASSAGE
OVER WARM WATER AND GOOD POLEWARD OUTFLOW AHEAD OF THE MID-LATITUDE
TROUGH CURRENTLY SITUATED TO THE SOUTH WILL ALLOW TC 16S TO CONTINUE
INTENSIFYING OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS. THEREAFTER, PASSAGE OVER
SOMEWHAT COOLER WATER AND RESTRICTION OF THE POLEWARD OUTFLOW
CHANNEL IS EXPECTED TO INDUCE SLOW WEAKENING. THE WEAKENING TREND
WILL BECOME MORE RAPID AND EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION COMMENCE BY TAU
72 AS THE CYCLONE ENCOUNTERS INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR,
ENTRAINS DRIER AIR FROM THE MIDLATITUDES, AND PASSES OVER MUCH
COOLER WATER. THE EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION PROCESS IS EXPECTED TO
COMPLETE BY TAU 120. THERE IS STILL A POSSIBILITY THAT THE CYCLONE
WILL DISSIPATE BELOW THE 35 KNOT WARNING THRESHOLD PRIOR TO BECOMING
EXTRATROPICAL. THE NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD GENERAL
AGREEMENT WITH THE CURRENT FORECAST, WHICH LIES SLIGHTLY EAST OF THE
MODEL CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 190000Z IS 26

REMARKS:
191500Z POSITION NEAR 23.0S 107.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (DIANNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 355 NM
WEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 05 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE SYSTEM HAS FORMED A 20 NM EYE, BUT DEEP
CONVECTION HAS ALL BUT VANISHED NEAR THE CENTER. LIKELY THE POLEWARD
OUTFLOW CHANNEL THAT HAS DEVELOPED AHEAD OF A LONGWAVE TROUGH
PASSING TO THE SOUTH IS TOO VIGOROUS. THE TC IS FAST-APPROACHING
COOLER WATERS, AND OCEAN HEAT CONTENT IS ALREADY VERY LOW. THE
INTENSITY FORECAST HAS BEEN ADJUSTED ACCORDINGLY TO ACCOUNT FOR
THESE CONDITIONS. IT IS ALSO CONSISTENT WITH THE LATEST INTENSITY
GUIDANCE. ONCE THE TROUGH PUSHES DOWNSTREAM OF THE TC IN THE NEXT 12
TO 24 HOURS THE DEEP LAYER RIDGE TO THE EAST WILL BUILD BACK SOUTH
OF THE SYSTEM, PROMOTING A MORE WEST OF SOUTH TRACK UNTIL ANOTHER
TROUGH PASSES. VERTICAL WIND SHEAR WILL ALSO TEMPORARILY RELAX. THIS
NEXT TROUGH WILL INCITE POLEWARD ACCELERATION AND EXTRATROPICAL
TRANSITION NEAR TAU 72. THIS TRANSITION WILL COMPLETE NEAR TAU 96.
HOWEVER, IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE SYSTEM COULD WEAKEN BELOW TROPICAL
CYCLONE INTENSITY DUE TO HEIGHTENED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AHEAD OF THE
SECOND TROUGH AND COOL SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 191200Z IS 27 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 200300Z AND
201500Z.//

REMARKS:
200300Z POSITION NEAR 24.0S 107.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (DIANNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 385 NM
WEST-SOUTHWEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED
SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 05 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED
MULTI-SPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS RAPID WEAKENING OVER THE PAST
06 HOURS AS CLOUD TOP TEMPERATURES HAVE WARMED SIGNIFICANTLY AND DRY
AIR STRATO-CUMULUS CLOUDS HAVE BEGUN TO WRAP IN FROM THE SOUTHWEST.
ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATES THAT WHILE THE POLEWARD
OUTFLOW CHANNEL REMAINS ENHANCED AHEAD OF A SHORT-WAVE UPPER LEVEL
TROUGH, A MAJORITY OF THE DEEP CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY ASSOCIATED WITH
THE SYSTEM HAS DISSIPATED. ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT THE
SYSTEM IS ALREADY TRACKING OVER COOLER SSTS AND LOW OHC WHICH HAS
PROMOTED THE RAPIDLY WEAKENING TREND. THESE FACTORS ALL CONTRIBUTE TO
THE SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN THE FORECAST INTENSITY FROM THE 19/12Z
WARNING. TC 16S IS CURRENTLY TRACKING ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF
A DEEP-LAYERED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE EXTENDING OVER WESTERN AUSTRALIA AND
WILL CONTINUE ALONG A GENERALLY WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK THROUGH TAU
36 AS THE RIDGE CONTINUES TO BUILD WESTWARD. AFTER TAU 36, A
TRANSITORY MID-LATITUDE TROUGH WILL ERODE THE RIDGE AND ALLOW FOR THE
SYSTEM TO RE-CURVE TO THE SOUTH-SOUTHEAST. TC 16S IS FORECAST TO
CONTINUE TO WEAKEN RAPIDLY AS IT TRACKS OVER INCREASINGLY UNFAVORABLE
SSTS AND IS NOW FORECAST TO DISSIPATE AS A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL
CYCLONE BY TAU 72. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS TIGHTLY CLUSTERED;
THEREFORE THIS FORECAST REMAINS CLOSE TO MODEL CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 200000Z IS 23 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
201500Z AND 210300Z.//

REMARKS:
210300Z POSITION NEAR 25.9S 103.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (DIANNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 590 NM
WEST-SOUTHWEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 12 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE CURRENT
POSITION IS BASED ON RECENT SATELLITE FIXES FROM PGTW AND APRF AND A
202039Z TRMM IMAGE. THE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATE OF 65 KNOTS IS
CONSISTENT WITH DVORAK T-NUMBERS OF 4.0/4.5 FROM APRF AND 3.5/4.5
FROM PGTW. TC 17S IS TRACKING ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A
SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE AND IS EXPECTED TO TURN POLEARD AHEAD OF
A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH APPROACHING FROM THE SOUTHWEST. PASSAGE OVER
COOLER WATER AND ENTRAINMENT OF DRIER AIR WILL RESULT IN STEADY
WEAKENING BELOW THE WARNING INTENSITY THRESHOLD OF 35 KNOTS BY TAU
36. THE NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE
CURRENT FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 210000Z IS 20
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 211500Z AND 220300Z. REFER TO TROPICAL
CYCLONE 15S (CARLOS) WARNINGS (WTXS32 PGTW) FOR SIX-HOURLY UPDATES.//

211500Z POSITION NEAR 27.1S 102.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (DIANNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 685 NM
WEST-SOUTHWEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A 211147Z SSMIS IMAGE DEPICT AN EXPOSED LOW-
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER WITH RAPIDLY DECAYING, ISOLATED DEEP
CONVECTION OVER THE SOUTHERN SEMI-CIRCLE. THE CURRENT POSITION IS
BASED ON THE SSMIS IMAGE AND THE LATEST FIXES. THE CURRENT INTENSITY
IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 35 TO 55 KNOTS FROM KNES,
PGTW AND ABRF. TC 16S IS TRACKING ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE
LOW-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE AND IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
TRACKING SOUTHWARD OVER COOL SST WHILE DISSIPATING BY TAU 24. THE
NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE CURRENT
FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 211200Z IS 18 FEET.

REMARKS:
220300Z POSITION NEAR 29.0S 102.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 16S (DIANNE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 760 NM
WEST-SOUTHWEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 14
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON
RECENT SATELLITE FIXES FROM PGTW, KNES, AND APRF AND THE CURRENT
INTENSITY OF 35 KNOTS IS CONSISTENT WITH A CONSENSUS OF DVORAK
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM THE SAME THREE REPORTING AGENCIES.
PASSAGE OVER COOLER WATER AND INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR HAVE
CAUSED TC 16S TO WEAKEN RAPIDLY OVER THE PAST TWELVE HOURS AS IT
TRACKED POLEWARD ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL
STEERING RIDGE TO THE EAST. THE MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WIND SPEED IS
EXPECTED TO DROP BELOW THE WARNING INTENSITY THRESHOLD OF 35 KNOTS
BY TAU 12 AS UNFAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS PERSIST.
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 220000Z IS 16 FEET. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 15S (CARLOS)
WARNINGS (WTXS32 PGTW) FOR SIX-HOURLY UPDATES.//
