SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 150 NM RADIUS OF 14.0S 149.6E 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 AT 130930Z INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 14.0S 149.7E. THE SYSTEM IS
MOVING NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD AT 04 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 14.8S
150.0E IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 14.0S 149.7E, APPROXIMATELY 285 NM
NORTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL IMAGERY
INDICATES RAPID CONSOLIDATION AND INTENSIFICATION OF THE LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. A 130356Z AMSR-E
37GHZ IMAGE SHOWS IMPROVED CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A WELL-
DEFINED CENTER. RECENT WATER VAPOR ANIMATION INDICATES AN
ANTICYCLONE HAS FORMED OVER THE LLCC WHICH HAS RESULTED IN IMPROVED
OUTFLOW AND DECREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. SATELLITE-DERIVED SST
RANGE FROM 30 TO 32 DEGREES CELSIUS. THE 24 HR SURFACE PRESSURE
FALLS IN THE AREA ARE APPROXIMATELY 03 MB. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE
WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS
ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1001 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
141000Z.//

REMARKS:
140300Z POSITION NEAR 12.3S 151.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (SEVEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 415 NM
NORTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-NORTHEASTWARD AT 07
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY INDICATES THIS SYSTEM HAS RAPIDLY DEVELOPED OVER THE PAST 12
HOURS. RECENT MICROWAVE PASSES SHOW A WELL DEFINED LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) AND TIGHTLY CURVED CONVECTIVE BANDING. THE
CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES OF 35 KNOTS FROM
PGTW, KNES, AND ABRF. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS
CURRENTLY LOCATED IN A REGION OF STRONG DIFFLUENT FLOW AND LOW
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (< 15 KNOTS). THE SYSTEM HAS BEGUN TO MAKE AN
EASTWARD TURN AND IS EXPECTED TO TRACK GENERALLY SOUTHEAST AFTER TAU
12 ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE LOW TO MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL
STEERING RIDGE. TC 07P IS FORECAST TO STEADILY INTENSIFY THROUGH TAU
72, BUT MAY INTENSIFY MORE SLOWLY IN THE EARLIER TAUS DUE TO
SUPPRESSED CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH AN UPPER LEVEL LOW JUST TO THE
SOUTH. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION AS
IT INTERACTS WITH A WEAK BAROCLINIC BOUNDARY AFTER TAU 72. NUMERICAL
MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN EXCELLENT AGREEMENT; THEREFORE THIS FORECAST IS
CLOSE TO MODEL CONSENSUS. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS REF A,

REMARKS:
141500Z POSITION NEAR 13.4S 152.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (ZELIA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 850 NM
NORTH OF BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 09
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY INDICATES VIGOROUS CONVECTION CONSOLIDATING OVER THE
CORE OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) AND THE WESTERN
QUADRANT. A 140811Z 37GHZ WINDSAT IMAGE SHOWS A CLEAR MICROWAVE EYE
WITH THICK AND WELL DEFINED CONVECTIVE BANDING. THE CURRENT
INTENSITY IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 45 TO 55 KNOTS
BY PGTW, KNES, AND ABRF, AS WELL AS THE MICROWAVE SIGNATURE.
ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS THE SYSTEM HAS DEVELOPED RADIAL
OUTFLOW DURING THE PAST 12 HRS. SSTS ARE 29-31 DEGREES CELSIUS.
UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN A
REGION OF STRONG DIFFLUENT FLOW AND LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (< 15
KNOTS). TC 07P IS EXPECTED TO TRACK GENERALLY SOUTHEASTWARD ALONG
THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE LOW TO MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL STEERING
RIDGE AND IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY TO A PEAK OF 80 KNOTS BEFORE
BEGINNING EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN
EXCELLENT AGREEMENT; THEREFORE THIS FORECAST IS CLOSE TO MODEL
CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 141200Z IS 12 FEET.

REMARKS:
150300Z POSITION NEAR 14.9S 152.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (ZELIA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 780 NM
NORTH OF BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 09
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A WELL-
DEFINED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) AND A 141941Z SSMIS
MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS DEEP CONVECTION WRAPPING AROUND THE LLCC. THE
CURRENT POSITION WAS INTERPOLATED FROM THIS MICROWAVE IMAGE. THE
INITIAL INTENSITY OF 55 KNOTS WAS HIGHER THAN THE PGTW AND ABRF
DVORAK ESTIMATES OF 45 KNOTS DUE TO THE GOOD MICROWAVE CONVECTIVE
SIGNATURE. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES GOOD RADIAL OUTFLOW AND
LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). ADDITIONALLY, SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES (SST) ARE HIGH (APPROXIMATELY 28 DEGREES CELSIUS). TC
07P IS CURRENTLY TRACKING ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A MID-LEVEL
STEERING RIDGE AND IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TRACKING GENERALLY
SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. AFTER TAU 36, LOWER
SSTS AND INCREASED VWS WILL BEGIN TO BECOME UNFAVORABLE FOR FURTHER
DEVELOPMENT, AND THE SYSTEM SHOULD BEGIN TO WEAKEN. BY TAU 48, TC
ZELIA IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION AND BECOME FULLY
ABSORBED INTO THE MID-LATITUDE WESTERLIES AS AN INTENSE
EXTRATROPICAL SYSTEM BY TAU 72. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN
EXCELLENT AGREEMENT. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 150000Z IS
17 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 151500Z AND 160300Z. REFER TO TROPICAL
CYCLONE 05P (VANIA) WARNINGS (WTPS31 PGTW)FOR TWELVE-HOURLY

151500Z POSITION NEAR 15.9S 153.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (ZELIA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 730 NM
NORTH OF BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 06
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. AFTER MAINTAINING 55 KNOTS FOR THE
PAST DAY THE CYCLONE HAS NOW BEGUN TO INTENSIFY. THE INITIAL
FORECAST INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 60 KNOTS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES
FROM PGTW AND ABRF. A 150753Z WINDSAT MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS A CLEAR
CUT MICROWAVE EYE AND SHEDS FAIR TO HIGH CONFIDENCE ON THE 12Z
POSITION. THE CYCLONE IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY IN
FAVORABLE WATERS AND LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN
EXCELLENT AGREEMENT IN REGARDS TO TRACK. THE CYCLONE WILL ACCELERATE
GENERALLY SOUTHEASTWARD IN THE WAKE OF EX TC 05P IN A HIGH AMPLITUDE
PATTERN TOWARDS THE MID-LATITUDES. THE CYCLONE WILL BEGIN

REMARKS:
161500Z POSITION NEAR 21.6S 161.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (ZELIA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 345 NM
WEST-NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-
SOUTHEASTWARD AT 24 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ZELIA CONTINUES
TO RACE DOWN THE MONSOON TROUGH IN A MODIFIED HIGH AMPLITUDE PATTERN
AS A MIDGET CYCLONE. CURRENTLY THE SYSTEM IS ASSESSED AT 90 KNOTS
BASED A 5.0 DVORAK EYE FIX FROM PGTW. THE EYE HAS MORE RECENTLY
BEGUN TO FILL AND ENLARGE, WHICH IS INDICATIVE OF SHORT TERM
WEAKENING AS THE CONVECTION CYCLES. AFTER TAU 12 SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES WILL NO LONGER SUPPORT INTENSIFICATION AND THE SYSTEM
WILL QUICKLY WEAKEN AS IT ACCELERATES TOWARDS THE MID-LATITUDES IN
EXCESS OF 20 KNOTS. BY TAU 24 THE SYSTEM WILL REST JUST SHY OF 30.0S
AND BEGIN TO UNDERGO EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION. ZELIA WILL BE FULLY
EXTRATROPICAL BEFORE REACHING NEW ZEALAND. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 161200Z IS 34 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 170300Z AND 171500Z.

171500Z POSITION NEAR 31.4S 170.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (ZELIA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 495 NM
NORTH-NORTHWEST OF AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD
AT 32 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. DESPITE ITS LATITUDE AND COOL
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ZELIA MAINTAINS MOST OF ITS TROPICAL
CHARACTERISTICS AS IT ACCELERATES POLEWARD IN THE MOIST WAKE
(VERIFIED BY CIMMS TPW) OF THE FORMER TC 05P. A 06Z CIRA AMSU RADIAL
CROSS SECTION INDICATES A WARM TEMPERATURE ANOMALY ALOFT, CONFIRMING
THE SYSTEM IS STILL TROPICAL. BECAUSE OF WHICH ZELIA DOES NOT MEET
THE JTWC CRITERIA FOR A FINAL WARNING AT THIS TIME. NONETHELESS
CONVECTION IS QUICKLY DEPLETING NEAR THE CENTER, AND AS A RESULT THE
LATEST DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATE FROM PGTW HAS DROPPED TO A 3.0/4.0
OR 45 TO 65 KNOTS. THE INITIAL FORECAST INTENSITY IS THE AVERAGE OF
THESE TWO VALUES. THE SYSTEM WILL BEGIN EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION
OVER THE NEXT FEW HOURS AND WILL COMPLETE THIS TRANSITION OFFSHORE
OF NEW ZEALAND WITHIN 12 HOURS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (ZELIA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 310 NM
NORTHWEST OF AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD
AT 32 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A 171727Z SSMIS IMAGE SHOW A FULLY EXPOSED BUT
WELL-DEFINED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH RAPIDLY
DECAYING AND ISOLATED DEEP CONVECTION DISPLACED OVER THE EAST
QUADRANT. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT TC 07P IS LOCATED
UNDER THE LEADING EDGE OF A BROAD, DEEP TROUGH WITH STRONG
NORTHWESTERLY FLOW AND MODERATE (20-25 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
(VWS). THE CURRENT INTENSITY OF 45 KNOTS IS BASED ON AN AVERAGE OF
DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND KNES RANGING FROM 35 TO 55 KNOTS. TC
07P IS CURRENTLY TRACKING OVER COLD SST (20-22C) AND IS FORECAST TO
CONTINUE WEAKENING WHILE UNDERGOING EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT).
THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO COMPLETE ETT WITHIN 12 HOURS. 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 171800Z IS 24
