SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
155 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 11.2S 75.4E TO 12.3S 67.3E
WITHIN THE NEXT 06 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 28 TO 33 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY
AT 051230Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 11.3S 74.7E. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WESTWARD AT 12 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS:
   THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 10.7S 78.1E,
IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 11.3S 74.7E, APPROXIMATELY 270 NM SOUTH-SOUTHEAST
OF DIEGO GARCIA. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS
FORMATIVE CONVECTIVE BANDS HAVE FURTHER DEEPENED AND WRAPPED TIGHTER
INTO A WELL-DEFINED, ALBEIT PARTIALLY EXPOSED, LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC). A 050638Z SCATTEROMETRY PASS CLEARLY SHOWS A TIGHTER
AND MORE SYMMETRIC LLCC WITH 30-KNOT WIND BARBS FEEDING INTO IT FROM
THE WESTERN AND SOUTHERN QUADRANTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES
THE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR HAS RELAXED AS THE CYCLONE IS NOW MOVING
WESTWARD AND IN-PHASE WITH THE UPPER LEVEL WIND FLOW. ADDITIONALLY,
WESTWARD AND EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW REMAIN ROBUST. THESE ARE EVIDENT ON
RECENT ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY. ALONG-TRACK SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES REMAIN FAVORABLE (28 TO 29 DEGREES CELSIUS) FOR FURTHER
DEVELOPMENT. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 28 TO
33 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1001 MB.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
061300Z.   //

REMARKS:
060900Z POSITION NEAR 10.9S 72.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 220 NM SOUTH OF
DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 04 KNOTS DURING THE
PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS AN
ELONGATED AREA OF DEEP CONVECTION WITH FORMATIVE BANDING WRAPPING
INTO AN ILL-DEFINED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 060502Z
TRMM 37 GHZ IMAGE REVEALS THE ELONGATED NATURE OF THE LLCC AND
SUGGESTS THE POSSIBILITY OF MULTIPLE VORTICES. THE INITIAL POSITION
IS BASED ON THE AFOREMENTIONED TRMM IMAGE AND POSITION FIXES FROM
PGTW AND KNES WITH LOW CONFIDENCE DUE TO THE BROADNESS OF THE
CIRCULATION. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 35 KNOTS BASED ON
DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND KNES. UPPER LEVEL
ANALYSIS INDICATES TC 21S IS JUST EQUATORWARD OF THE SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE (STR) AXIS WITH GOOD RADIAL OUTFLOW BEGINNING TO DEVELOP, AS
INDICATED BY ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY. CONVECTIVE ORGANIZATION
IS BEING HAMPERED BY MODERATE (20 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS).
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE FAVORABLE AT 29 DEGREE CELSIUS. TC 21S
WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE
DEEP LAYER STR TO THE SOUTH. AS VWS BECOMES MORE FAVORABLE, THE
SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO GRADUALLY INTENSIFY TO A PEAK OF 100 KNOTS BY
TAU 96. AFTER TAU 96, TC 21S IS EXPECTED TO SLOW AND DEFLECT
POLEWARD AS AN APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH BEGINS TO BREAKDOWN
THE STR. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMICAL MODEL AND ENSEMBLE GUIDANCE IS IN
GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS FORECAST SCENARIO, HOWEVER, THE OVERALL
FORECAST CONFIDENCE IS LOW DUE TO THE DIFFICULTY IN ASSESSING THE
INITIAL POSITION. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 060600Z IS 10
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 062100Z AND 070900Z. THIS WARNING
SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS REF A, JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI

REMARKS:
062100Z POSITION NEAR 10.8S 71.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 200 NM SOUTH-
SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 05 KNOTS DURING
THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS
PERSISTENT CONVECTION, WHICH BECOMES SHEARED TO THE WEST BY MODERATE
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) LEAVING THE EASTERN PORTION OF THE LOW-
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) PARTIALLY-EXPOSED. THE INITIAL
POSITION IS BASED ON A 061621Z ASCAT AMBIGUITY ANALYSIS ALONG WITH
THE 061707Z AMSU-B, WHICH CORRELATE VERY WELL WITH THE PGTW CENTER
FIX, WITH FAIR CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 35
KNOTS BASED ON DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND KNES
ALONG WITH THE ASCAT PASS. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES TC 21S IS
APPROXIMATELY 05 DEGREES EQUATORWARD OF THE SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE (STR) AXIS AND MODERATE 20-KNOT VWS CONTINUES TO HAMPER THE
CONVECTIVE DEVELOPMENT. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATES GOOD
POLEWARD OUTFLOW, HOWEVER EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW IS LIMITED DUE TO
TROUGHING NORTH AND EAST OF MADAGASCAR. TC 21S WILL CONTINUE TO
TRACK WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE DEEP LAYERED STR
TO THE SOUTH. BY TAU 48 AN UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH WILL RE-ORIENTATE THE
CURRENT WEST-EAST ORIENTATED STR TO A NORTHWEST-SOUTHEAST
ORIENTATION. THIS WILL ALLOW VWS TO RELAX AS THE SYSTEM NEARS THE
STR AXIS. IN ADDITION, A WARMER POOL OF SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND
OCEAN HEAT CONTENT DURING THIS TIME WILL ALLOW TC 21S TO INTENSIFY
SOMEWHAT RAPIDLY. FURTHER INTENSIFICATION IS EXPECTED THRU TAUS 72-
96 AS POLEWARD OUTFLOW INCREASES IN RESPONSE TO A DIFFERENT AND
DEEPER UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH APPROACHING FROM THE WEST. THIS TROUGH
WILL FURTHER BREAK DOWN THE STEERING STR AND ALLOW FOR TC 21S TO DIP
POLEWARD TOWARDS THE MID-LATITUDES. THE FORECAST STILL CALLS FOR A
PEAK OF 100 KNOTS BY TAU 96 BUT THIS MAY NEED TO BE ADJUSTED AS THE
INFLUENCE OF FAVORABLE FACTORS BEGINS TO TAKE THEIR EFFECTS. MODEL
GUIDANCE IS IN A GENERAL AGREEMENT WITH THE POLEWARD DEFLECTION IN
THE EXTENDED FORECAST HOWEVER THE TIMING AND SHARPNESS IN THE
DEFLECTION ARE STILL UNCLEAR. THE WBAR AND EGRR HAVE BEEN
SUBJECTIVELY DISCOUNTED DUE TO THEIR ERRONEOUS TRACKS. THE OFFICIAL
FORECAST IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS FORECAST BUT THE TAU 120
POSITION DIPS FURTHER POLEWARD THAN PREVIOUSLY FORECAST. THERE IS
HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE THREE DAY FORECAST BUT LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE
EXTENDED PORTION. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 061800Z IS 11
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 070900Z AND 072100Z.//

REMARKS:
070900Z POSITION NEAR 10.7S 70.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (TWENTYONE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 230 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 04 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
DEPICTS A PARTIALLY-EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC)
LOCATED TO THE EAST OF PERSISTENT DEEP CONVECTION. A 070305Z SSMIS
37GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE REVEALS CURVED BANDING WRAPPING INTO AN
ELONGATED LLCC. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE AFOREMENTIONED
SSMIS IMAGE AS WELL AS PGTW AND KNES FIX CENTERS. THE INTENSITY IS
ASSESSED AT 35 KNOTS BASED ON DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES
BETWEEN 30 TO 35 KNOTS FROM PGTW AND KNES, AS WELL AS A 070414Z
ASCAT PASS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES TC 21S IS APPROXIMATELY
FIVE DEGREES EQUATORWARD OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) AXIS.
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) REMAINS MODERATE (15-20 KNOTS), CAUSING
THE DEEP CONVECTION TO BE SHEARED TO THE WEST. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY DEPICTS MODERATE POLEWARD OUTFLOW, HOWEVER, EQUATORWARD
OUTFLOW IS LIMITED DUE TO TROUGHING. TC 21S WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK
WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD THROUGH TAU 72 UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE DEEP
LAYERED STR TO THE SOUTH. A GRADUAL DECREASE IN VWS AND FAIR OUTFLOW
WILL ALLOW FOR INTENSIFICATION. ADDITIONALLY, A POOL OF HIGHER OCEAN
HEAT CONTENT LOCATED ALONG THE FORECAST TRACK WILL AID IN THIS
INTENSIFICATION. AFTER TAU 72, A DEEP LAYER MID-LATITUDE TROUGH WILL
MOVE IN FROM THE WEST AND BEGIN TO REORIENT THE STR IN THE NORTH-
SOUTH DIRECTION, ALLOWING FOR TC 21S TO TURN POLEWARD. THE FORECAST
CALLS FOR A PEAK INTENSITY OF 95 KNOTS BY TAU 96. THOUGH DYNAMICAL
MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GENERALLY GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE POLEWARD
DEFLECTION IN THE EXTENDED FORECAST, THE TIMING AND SHARPNESS IN THE
DEFLECTION ARE STILL UNCLEAR. THIS IS FURTHER EVIDENCED BY
INCREASING SPREAD NOTED IN ENSEMBLE MODEL PRODUCTS. THE OFFICIAL
FORECAST IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS FORECAST, WITH THE POLEWARD
DEFLECTION NOW BECOMING MORE EVIDENT IN THE LATER TAUS. THERE IS
HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE THREE DAY FORECAST, BUT LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE
EXTENDED PORTION. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 070600Z IS 13
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 072100Z AND 080900Z.//

SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 11
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY

REMARKS:
082100Z POSITION NEAR 11.1S 63.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (IMELDA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 755 NM
NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON RECENT SATELLITE
FIXES FROM PGTW AND KNES AND A 081531Z SSMIS PASS. THE CURRENT
INTENSITY OF 45 KNOTS IS SET SLIGHTLY ABOVE A CONSENSUS OF SUBJECTIVE
DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM MULTIPLE REPORTING AGENCIES BASED ON STRUCTURE
EVIDENT IN MICROWAVE IMAGERY AND HIGHER AUTOMATED INTENSITY
ESTIMATES. RECENT ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS DEEP
CONVECTION FLARING OVER A LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) EVIDENT
IN THE AFOREMENTIONED SSMIS PASS. TC 21S LIES SLIGHTLY EQUATORWARD OF
AN UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE AXIS, IN AN AREA OF MODERATE EASTERLY VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR AND RADIAL OUTFLOW ALOFT. THE SYSTEM IS TRACKING WESTWARD
ALONG THE PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. TC 21S WILL
TURN POLEWARD AFTER TAU 36 AS MID-LATITUDE TROUGH APPROACHING FROM
THE SOUTHWEST WEAKENS THE STEERING RIDGE. STEADY INTENSIFICATION IS
EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS AS VERTICAL WIND SHEAR RELAXES AND
THE CYCLONE PASSES ACROSS WARM WATER. ENHANCED POLEWARD OUTFLOW AFTER
TAU 36 WILL RESULT IN A BRIEF PERIOD OF FASTER INTENSIFICATION BEFORE
INCREASING WESTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR USHERS IN SLOW WEAKENING.
ALTHOUGH DYNAMICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GENERALLY GOOD AGREEMENT WITH
THIS FORECAST SCENARIO, SPREAD IN THE SHARPNESS OF THE POLEWARD TURN
REMAINS. THIS TREND IS ALSO NOTED IN ENSEMBLE MODEL PRODUCTS. BASED
ON THIS SPREAD IN THE GUIDANCE, THERE IS DECREASED CONFIDENCE IN THE
JTWC FORECAST TRACK AFTER TAU 48. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
081800Z IS 19 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 090900Z AND 092100Z.//

REMARKS:
090900Z POSITION NEAR 11.7S 60.8E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (IMELDA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 650 NM
NORTH-NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 13
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON
RECENT ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS AVERAGED FROM SUBJECTIVE DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM MULTIPLE
REPORTING AGENCIES INCLUDING PGTW, KNES, FMEE, AND FIMP. ANIMATED
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS DEEPENED CONVECTION OVER A LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER THAT IS BEGINNING TO FORM INTO AN EYE-LIKE
FEATURE. TC 21S LIES SLIGHTLY EQUATORWARD OF AN UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE
AXIS, IN AN AREA OF MODERATE (15-20 KNOT) EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR (VWS); HOWEVER, ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS EXCELLENT
RADIAL OUTFLOW. THE SYSTEM IS TRACKING WESTWARD ALONG THE PERIPHERY
OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. TC 21S WILL TURN POLEWARD AFTER
TAU 24 AS A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH APPROACHING FROM THE SOUTHWEST
WEAKENS THE STEERING RIDGE. STEADY INTENSIFICATION IS EXPECTED OVER
THE NEXT 24 HOURS AS VWS RELAXES AND THE CYCLONE PASSES ACROSS
RELATIVELY WARM WATER. ENHANCED POLEWARD OUTFLOW AFTER TAU 24 WILL
RESULT IN A BRIEF PERIOD OF FASTER INTENSIFICATION BEFORE INCREASING
WESTERLY VWS BEGINS TO ERODE THE SYSTEM. ALTHOUGH DYNAMICAL MODEL
GUIDANCE IS IN GENERALLY GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS FORECAST SCENARIO,
SPREAD IN THE SHARPNESS OF THE POLEWARD TURN REMAINS. EGRR IS THE
EXTREME LEFT OUTLIER AND NAVGEMS IS ON THE RIGHT MARGIN OF THE MODEL
ENVELOPE. BASED ON THIS SPREAD IN THE GUIDANCE, THERE IS DECREASED

REMARKS:
092100Z POSITION NEAR 11.7S 59.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (IMELDA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 620 NM
NORTH-NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 07 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON RECENT
SATELLITE FIXES FROM VARIOUS REPORTING AGENCIES AND A 091423Z
CORIOLIS IMAGE SHOWING A CLEAR LOW LEVEL CENTER. THE INTENSITY OF 60
KNOTS IS CONSISTENT WITH SUBJECTIVE DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW,
KNES, AND FMEE. TC 21S CONTINUES TO TRACK GENERALLY WESTWARD ALONG
THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE TO THE SOUTH.
A MIDLATITUDE TROUGH APPROACHING FROM THE SOUTHWEST WILL ERODE AND
EVENTUALLY BREAK THE STEERING RIDGE OVER THE NEXT 72 HOURS, INDUCING
A POLEWARD TURN FOLLOWED BY SOUTHEASTWARD MOTION IN THE EXTENDED
TERM. THE SYSTEM SHOULD STEADILY INTENSIFY THROUGH THE TURN AS
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR REMAINS LOW AND POLEWARD OUTFLOW IMPROVES AHEAD
OF THE APPROACHING TROUGH. ALTHOUGH DYNAMICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN
AGREEMENT WITH THIS FORECAST SCENARIO, SPREAD IN THE SHARPNESS OF
THE POLEWARD TURN REMAINS. HOWEVER, THERE IS GENERAL AGREEMENT AMONG
THE MODELS THAT TC 21S WILL REMAIN SEPARATED FROM THE BAROCLINIC
ZONE THROUGH TAU 120, BEFORE EVENTUALLY BECOMING EXTRATROPICAL AFTER
THE CURRENT FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
091800Z IS 21 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 100900Z AND 102100Z. REFER TO

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (IMELDA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 570 NM
NORTH-NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 04
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS THE SYSTEM HAS SLOWED DOWN AND BEGAN TO TRACK MORE
SOUTH OF WESTWARD AS IT FURTHER DEEPENED. THE INITIAL POSITION IS
BASED ON THE ABOVE ANIMATION AND FROM A 100451Z AMSU-B MICROWAVE
PASS. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS A CONSENSUS OF SUBJECTIVE DVORAK
ESTIMATES FROM PGTW, KNES, AND FMEE. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES
THE SYSTEM IS JUST TO THE NORTH OF A RIDGE AXIS IN AN AREA OF LIGHT
(05-10 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND GOOD RADIAL OUTFLOW. THE
CYCLONE IS BEGINNING TO ROUND THE NORTHWEST PERIPHERY OF A
DEEP-LAYERED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTHEAST. A MID-LATITUDE
TROUGH APPROACHING FROM THE SOUTHWEST WILL ERODE THE STEERING RIDGE
AND CAUSE TC 21S TO TRACK MORE POLEWARD AFTER TAU 24, FOLLOWED BY A
SOUTHEASTWARD TRACK IN THE EXTENDED TAUS. THE SYSTEM SHOULD STEADILY
INTENSIFY THROUGH THE TURN AS VWS REMAINS LOW AND POLEWARD OUTFLOW

REMARKS:
102100Z POSITION NEAR 12.4S 57.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (IMELDA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 545 NM
NORTH-NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 02
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS THE SYSTEM HAS CONTINUED TO SLOW AS A DEEP LAYERED
TROUGH PREVIOUSLY LOCATED OVER SOUTHERN AFRICA HAS STARTED TO MOVE
INTO THE SOUTHWESTERN INDIAN OCEAN WEAKENING THE WESTERN EXTENT OF
THE SUBTROPICAL HIGH (STH) STEERING THE SYSTEM. AS THE SYSTEM HAS
SLOWED OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS, THE OVERALL ORGANIZATION HAS
IMPROVED WITH DVORAK ESTIMATED FROM PGTW AND KNES REFLECTING THE
RECENT INCREASE IN INTENSITY TO 85 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS JUST TO THE NORTH OF A RIDGE AXIS IN AN AREA
OF LIGHT (05-10 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND GOOD RADIAL
OUTFLOW. THE CYCLONE IS BEGINNING TO ROUND THE NORTHWEST PERIPHERY
OF A DEEP-LAYERED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTHEAST. THE DEEP
LAYERED TROUGH IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TRACKING EASTWARD, CAUSING A
SHIFT IN THE STH, BRINGING TC 21S SOUTHWARD THROUGH TAU 72. BEYOND
TAU 72 THE SYSTEM WILL SHIFT TO A SOUTHEASTWARD TRACK AROUND THE
SOUTHWESTERN QUADRANT OF THE STH. MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR
AGREEMENT WITH THE FORECAST TRACK WITH THE EXCEPTION OF NVGM AND
GFDN SHOWING A MORE WESTWARD TRACK BEFORE EVENTUALLY TURNING TO THE
SOUTHEAST LIKE THE REMAINDER OF THE OBJECTIVE AIDS. A LACK OF MID-
LATITUDE INTERACTION WILL KEEP VERTICAL WIND SHEAR LOW AND AS THE
SYSTEM REMAINS OVER FAVORABLE SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES, TC 21S IS
EXPECTED REMAIN AN INTENSE TROPICAL CYCLONE THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST
PERIOD. BASED ON THE FAIR AGREEMENT IN MODEL GUIDANCE THERE IS HIGH
CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
101800Z IS 28 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 110900Z AND 112100Z. REFER TO

REMARKS:
110900Z POSITION NEAR 13.1S 57.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (IMELDA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 515 NM
NORTH-NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 02 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
DEPICTS TIGHTLY CURVED SPIRAL BANDING WRAPPING INTO A LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER. AN 110358Z SSMIS 37GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE DEPICTS
DEEP CONVECTION FAVORING THE EASTERN QUADRANTS IN RESPONSE TO
SLIGHTLY INCREASED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS), HOWEVER THE CENTER
REMAINS WELL DEFINED. THE SYSTEM IS NOW QUASI-STATIONARY AS THE
STEERING RIDGE TO THE SOUTHEAST IS WEAKENING AND BECOMING RE-
ORIENTED IN RESPONSE TO AN APPROACHING DEEP-LAYER TROUGH (DLT). THE
INITIAL POSITION IS EXTRAPOLATED FROM THE AFOREMENTIONED SSMIS IMAGE
WITH FAIR CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 75 KNOTS
BASED ON A RANGE OF DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM 65 TO 77
KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM HAS A POINT SOURCE
OVERHEAD PROVIDING MODERATE RADIAL OUTFLOW, WITH VWS INCREASING
SLIGHTLY TO 10 TO 15 KNOTS. TC 21S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING
GENERALLY SOUTHWARD THROUGH TAU 48 AS THE STEERING RIDGE BECOMES RE-
ESTABLISHED. BEYOND TAU 48 THE SYSTEM WILL SHIFT TO A SOUTHEASTWARD
TRACK AS IT ROUNDS THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE STEERING RIDGE.
MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THE FORECAST TRACK, WITH
NVGM BEING THE WESTERN-MOST OUTLIER AND EGRR THE EASTERN-MOST. THERE
IS ALSO FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO IN THE AVAILABLE ENSEMBLE
MODEL PRODUCTS. DESPITE THE SLIGHT WEAKENING TREND OVER THE PAST 12
HOURS, FAVORABLE (28 TO 29 DEGREES CELSIUS) SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES, LOW TO MODERATE VWS, AND ENHANCED OUTFLOW FROM THE DLT
SHOULD ALLOW FOR A PERIOD OF SLIGHT RE-INTENSIFICATION THROUGH TAU
48. AFTER THAT TIME, INCREASING INTERACTION WITH MID-LATITUDE
WESTERLIES WILL RESULT IN HIGHER VWS, BEGINNING A GRADUAL
DISSIPATION OF TC 21S. ALTHOUGH THERE IS SOME VARIABILITY IN THE
TRACK SPEEDS AMONG DYNAMICAL MODELS, THEY SUGGEST THAT TC 21S WILL
BEGIN TO INTERACT WITH THE BAROCLINIC MID-LATITUDE FLOW AROUND TAU
120. BASED ON THE FAIR AGREEMENT IN MODEL GUIDANCE THERE IS HIGH
CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
110600Z IS 30 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 112100Z AND 120900Z. REFER TO

REMARKS:
112100Z POSITION NEAR 13.4S 58.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (IMELDA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 510 NM
NORTH-NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS CONVECTION NEAR THE CENTER OF THE SYSTEM HAS BEEN
SLOWLY WEAKENING OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS WITH A PARTIALLY EXPOSED LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES A
DEVELOPING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH TO THE SOUTHWEST OF THE SYSTEM HAS
STARTED TO MITIGATE THE EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL AND IS CREATING
LOW TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) ALONG THE WESTERN BOUNDARY
OF THE LLCC. OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS, THIS SHIFT IN UPPER LEVEL
SUPPORT HAS LED TO THE OBSERVED WEAKENING TREND IN DVORAK ESTIMATES
FROM PGTW, KNES, FMEE AND FIMP. MODEL GUIDANCE INDICATES THAT THE
NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE (NER), STEERING TC 21S, WILL BUILD TO THE
SOUTHEAST AS A DEEP-LAYERED TROUGH (DLT) TO THE SOUTHEAST WEAKENS
AND CONTINUES TO MOVE EASTWARD. BASED ON THE TIMING OF THIS FEATURE
AND THE APPROACH OF A SECOND DLT FROM THE SOUTHWEST, THE FORECAST
TRACK WILL UNDERGO A WEAKLY DEFINED STAIR-STEP PATH TO THE SOUTHEAST
AS THE NER RE-ORIENTS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE TRANSITORY MID-
LATITUDE TROUGHS. THE SECOND DLT TO THE SOUTHWEST WILL CONTINUE
TRACKING EASTWARD, ALLOWING THE EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL TO RE-
ESTABLISH ITSELF, IMPROVING THE OVERALL UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT BY
TAU 24. FAVORABLE SEA SURFACE CONDITIONS IN ASSOCIATION WITH
IMPROVED OUTFLOW ALOFT WILL ALLOW FOR THE RE-INTENSIFICATION OF THE
SYSTEM THROUGH TAU 72. BEYOND TAU 72 INCREASING VWS AND DECREASING
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES WILL STIFLE FURTHER DEVELOPMENT, LEADING TO
A WEAKENING TREND THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. DUE
TO THE CURRENT POOR STEERING ENVIRONMENT AND MODEL GUIDANCE
PERSISTING WITH A STRONGER SOUTHERLY TRACK FOR THE PAST 24 HOURS,
THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 111800Z IS 28 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
120900Z AND 122100Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S (VICTORIA)

REMARKS:
120900Z POSITION NEAR 14.3S 58.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (IMELDA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 465 NM
NORTH-NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 06
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY (MSI) DEPICTS SHALLOW CURVED BANDING WRAPPING INTO A FULLY
EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). SEVERAL RECENT
SCATTEROMETRY PASSES INDICATE THAT THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION IS
STILL WELL DEFINED, WITH NUMEROUS 40-45 KNOT WIND BARBS WITHIN A
FAIRLY SYMMETRIC RADIUS. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE MSI
AND SCATTEROMETRY WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS
BASED ON DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 45 KNOTS FROM ALL FIXING
AGENCIES. OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS, INTENSITY GUIDANCE HAS
PERSISTENTLY CALLED FOR A SIGNIFICANT RE-DEVELOPMENT OF TC 21S,
HOWEVER, THE ENVIRONMENT HAS BECOME INCREASINGLY UNFAVORABLE. THE
CURRENT ANALYSIS HAS LEAD TO A CHANGE OF FORECAST PHILOSOPHY THAT
NOW SUPPORTS A GRADUAL DISSIPATION OVER THE NEXT 72 HOURS. UPPER
LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES AN EQUATORWARD EXTENSION OF AN APPROACHING
DEEP LAYER TROUGH HAS AMPLIFIED DUE TO AN ANTICYCLONE OVER THE
MOZAMBIQUE CHANNEL, AND IS NOW MOVING ALMOST DIRECTLY OVER THE
SYSTEM. THE IMPACT OF THE SUBSIDENCE IS CLEARLY SEEN IN THE EROSION
OF CONVECTION NOTED IN MSI, AS WELL AS IN ANIMATED WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY. THIS AREA OF TROUGHING HAS ALSO CUT OFF NEARLY ALL WESTWARD
AND EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) CURRENTLY REMAINS
LOW TO MODERATE AND SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE STILL FAVORABLE,
HOWEVER THESE FACTORS ARE NOT ENOUGH TO OVERCOME THE EFFECTS OF THE
TROUGHING ON THE SYSTEM. MODEL GUIDANCE INDICATES THAT TC 21S WILL
MAINTAIN ITS STRUCTURE AND TRACK ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF
A DEEP LAYER NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE EAST. VWS VALUES ARE
EXPECTED TO INCREASE AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS POLEWARD, CONTRIBUTING TO
THE GRADUAL DISSIPATION BY TAU 72. AS THE SYSTEM DISSIPATES, THE
STEERING FLOW WILL BEGIN TO SHIFT TO LOWER LEVELS. SOME MODELS ARE
BEGINNING TO SUGGEST THAT THE LLCC COULD BECOME COMPLETELY UNCOUPLED
FROM THE UPPER LEVEL FLOW, CAUSING THE REMNANTS OF TC 21S TO TURN
BACK TO THE WEST. DUE TO THE LARGE SPREAD IN TRACKS BASED ON THE
STORM DEPTH, THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT TRACK FORECAST.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 120600Z IS 22 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS
AT 122100Z AND 130900Z.REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 22S (VICTORIA)

INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON CONGRUENT SUBJECTIVE DVORAK ESTIMATES
FROM PGTW, KNES, AND FIMP. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM
IS 10 DEGREES SOUTH OF A RIDGE AXIS IN AN AREA OF LOW TO MODERATE
(05-10 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). ALONG-TRACK SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES REMAIN FAVORABLE AT 28-30 DEGREES CELSIUS. THESE

PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS
REBUILDING CONVECTION AROUND A DEFINED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION WITH
THE BULK OF THE DEEP CONVECTION CONFINED TO THE SOUTHERN SEMI-
CIRCLE. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE ABOVE ANIMATION AND A
130530Z AMSU-B MICROWAVE IMAGE WITH FAIR CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS BASED ON CONGRUENT DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM
PGTW, FMEE, AND FIMP, AND IS FURTHER SUPPORTED BY A 130335Z SSMI-S
WIND PRODUCT AND A 130531Z ASCAT PASS SHOWING 35 KNOT WINDS IN THE
PERIPHERIES OF THE SYSTEM. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM
IS LOCATED SOUTH OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AXIS IN AN AREA OF LOW (05-
10 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY
REVEALS FAVORABLE POLEWARD OUTFLOW WHICH IS BEING AIDED BY AN UPPER-
LEVEL LOW NEAR THE WEST COAST OF AUSTRALIA AND THE SUBTROPICAL JET
LOCATED JUST SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM. TC 21S IS EXPECTED TO TRACK ALONG
THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE

FAVORABLE CONDITIONS OF LOW VWS AND GOOD POLEWARD OUTFLOW ARE
FORECAST. AFTER TAU 24, INCREASING VWS AHEAD OF A MID-LATITUDE
TROUGH APPROACHING FROM THE WEST WILL OFFSET THE FAVORABLE OUTFLOW
ALLOWING FOR DISSIPATION BY TAU 48. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE CONTINUES
TO SHOW A LARGE SPREAD IN TRACKS, ALTHOUGH THERE IS A LOOSE
AGREEMENT IN A GENERAL SOUTH TO SOUTHEASTWARD TRACK THROUGH THE

REMARKS:
132100Z POSITION NEAR 16.8S 58.6E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (IMELDA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 315 NM
NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 03 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS A
DEEPENED CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST FEATURE OVER A WELL-DEFINED LOW-LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER. THIS IS ALSO EVIDENT ON A 131610Z 37 GHZ SSMI-S
MICROWAVE PASS. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON CLOSELY GROUPED
AGENCY FIXES AND ON THE ABOVE MICROWAVE IMAGE WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE.
THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS AN AVERAGE OF SUBJECTIVE DVORAK ESTIMATES
FROM PGTW, KNES, AND FIMP. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS (ULA) INDICATES THE
SYSTEM IS BETWEEN TWO RIDGE AXES - ONE TO THE NORTH AND ANOTHER TO
THE SOUTH IN AN AREA OF LOW (05-10 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS).
TC 21S HAD UNPREDICTABLY TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD OVER THE PAST 12
HOURS. FROM THE SAME ULA, THE STEERING RIDGE TO THE EAST WAS NOT
SIGNIFICANTLY WEAKENED BY A PASSING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH AS PREVIOUSLY
FORECAST. INSTEAD, THE RIDGE WAS DEFORMED INTO A KIDNEY-SHAPED
ANTICYCLONE ALONG A MERIDIONAL AXIS. IN RESPONSE TO THIS
TRANSFORMATION TO THE STEERING RIDGE, 21S JOGGED WESTWARD. THIS
RECENT DEVELOPMENT NECESSITATED A SLIGHT CHANGE IN THE JTWC TRACK
FORECAST PHILOSOPHY. TC IMELDA SHOULD REVERT TO A GENERALLY POLEWARD
TRAJECTORY BY TAU 12 AFTER IT ROUNDS THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF THE
STEERING RIDGE. AFTER TAU 48, A BUILDING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE
SOUTH WILL BEGIN TO DEFLECT THE CYCLONE WESTWARD. THE SYSTEM WILL
PEAK INTENSITY OVER THE NEXT 12 HOURS AS GOOD OUTFLOW PERSISTS;
AFTERWARDS, INCREASING VWS WILL GRADUALLY WEAKEN AND EVENTUALLY
DISSIPATE THE SYSTEM BY TAU 72. THE AVAILABLE NUMERIC GUIDANCE IS
WIDELY SPREAD AND LENDS LOW CONFIDENCE TO THE TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 131800Z IS 25 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
140900Z AND 142100Z.
JUSTIFICATION FOR CORRECTION: CORRECTED MINOR TYPOGRAPHICAL ERRORS.

REMARKS:
140900Z POSITION NEAR 17.4S 59.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (IMELDA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 325 NM
NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 03 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS
FLARING DEEP CONVECTION ENCIRCLING A WELL-DEFINED LOW-LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER THAT HAS DEVELOPED INTO A RAGGED EYE OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. A 140510Z AMSU-B MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS A CONCENTRIC
RING OF DEEP CONVECTION AROUND A DEFINED MICROWAVE EYE FEATURE. THE
INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE AFOREMENTIONED IMAGERY WITH HIGH
CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 60 KNOTS IS BASED ON AN AVERAGE
OF SUBJECTIVE DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND KNES RANGING
FROM 55 TO 65 KNOTS. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES TC 21S CONTINUES
TO HAVE ROBUST POLEWARD OUTFLOW BUT VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) HAS
SLIGHTLY INCREASED TO MODERATE LEVELS (10-20 KNOTS). TC 21S HAS
STARTED TO TRACK SOUTHEAST AROUND A BUILDING EXTENSION OF THE NEAR-
EQUATORIAL RIDGE (NER) TO THE NORTHEAST. TC 21S WILL CONTINUE ON
THIS SOUTHEASTWARD TRACK FOR THE NEXT 36 HOURS AS THE NER REMAINS
THE DOMINANT STEERING INFLUENCE. AFTER TAU 36, A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
IS EXPECTED TO BUILD SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM DRIVING TC 21S ON A MORE
WESTWARD TRAJECTORY. TC 21S IS EXPECTED TO REACH A PEAK INTENSITY OF
65 KNOTS IN THE NEXT 12 HOURS AS ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS REMAIN
FAVORABLE. AFTER TAU 12, FURTHER INCREASING VWS WILL HAMPER THE
SYSTEM AND ALLOW FOR DISSIPATION BY TAU 72. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF
NAVGEM, WHICH HAS A MORE SOUTHERN TRAJECTORY, DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE
GENERALLY AGREES ON A SOUTHEASTWARD TRACK THROUGH TAU 48, WITH
VARYING TRACK SPEEDS AND THE EXTENT OF THE WESTWARD TURN AT THE END
OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. DUE TO THIS, THE FORECAST TRACK LIES CLOSE
TO MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS WITH LOW CONFIDENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 140600Z IS 28 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 142100Z AND

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (IMELDA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 340 NM
EAST-NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 14 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
INDICATES THE SYSTEM HAS SIGNIFICANTLY DEEPENED AND OPENED AND CLOSED
AN EYE IN THE PAST 12 HOURS. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON
CLOSELY-GROUPED AGENCY FIXES AND LINED UP WELL WITH A CENTRAL WARM
SPOT ON A 141558Z SSMI-S MICROWAVE PASS. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS
BASED ON A CONSENSUS OF SUBJECTIVE DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW, KNES,
AND FIMP. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS SOUTH OF A
RIDGE AXIS IN AN AREA OF MODERATE (15-20 KNOT) NORTHWESTERLY VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR (VWS); HOWEVER, POLEWARD OUTFLOW, WHICH IS ENHANCING THE
CONVECTION, REMAINS ROBUST, AS EVIDENCED ON ANIMATED WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY. THE CYCLONE IS TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHWEST PERIPHERY OF A
NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE AND IS EXPECTED TO RECURVE WESTWARD AFTER TAU
36 AS A BUILDING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH ASSUMES STEERING. AS
THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO MOVE POLEWARD, THE VWS WILL STEADILY INCREASE
CAUSING ITS GRADUAL EROSION AND, FINALLY, DISSIPATION BY TAU 72. THE
AVAILABLE NUMERIC GUIDANCE IS IN OVERALL GOOD AGREEMENT WITH WBAR AS
THE SOLE OUTLIER EXTENDING THE TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD BEYOND 72 HOURS.
THE REMAINDER OF THE MODELS RECURVE THE VORTEX WESTWARD, ALBEIT AT

REMARKS:
150900Z POSITION NEAR 19.8S 61.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (IMELDA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 360 NM
EAST-NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 09
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY (MSI) SHOWS A LARGE COLD DENSE OVERCAST (CDO) FEATURE THAT
IS OBSCURING THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WHILE THE
OVERALL STRUCTURE OF THE SYSTEM IS BECOMING ELONGATED. A 150450Z
AMSU-B MICROWAVE IMAGE CONCURS WITH THE MSI AND ADDITIONALLY SHOWS
THE CONVECTION SURROUNDING THE LLCC IS BEGINNING TO WEAKEN. THE
INITIAL POSITION IS POSITIONED WITH LOW CONFIDENCE DUE TO THE CDO
FEATURE OBSCURING THE LLCC AND IS EXTRAPOLATED FROM THE
AFOREMENTIONED MICROWAVE IMAGE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 65 KNOTS IS
BASED ON CONGRUENT DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF THE SAME VALUE FROM
ALL REPORTING AGENCIES AND IS CONCURRENT WITH THE OVERALL WEAKENING
STRUCTURE. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS SOUTH OF A
RIDGE AXIS IN AN AREA OF MODERATE (15-20 KNOT) NORTHWESTERLY
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND POLEWARD OUTFLOW CONTINUES TO BE
FAVORABLE AS THE SUBTROPICAL JET JUST SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM, PROVIDES
ENHANCEMENT. TC 21S IS TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHWEST PERIPHERY OF AN
EXTENSION OF THE NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE AND IS EXPECTED TO SLOW AND
RECURVE WESTWARD AFTER TAU 24 AS A BUILDING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE
SOUTH ASSUMES STEERING. THE SYSTEM SHOULD CONTINUE TO WEAKEN THROUGH
THE FORECAST PERIOD AS TC 21S ENCOUNTERS INCREASING VWS, ALLOWING
FOR DISSIPATION BY TAU 72. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR
AGREEMENT WITH THE WESTWARD TRACK, ALTHOUGH WITH VARYING TRACK
SPEEDS. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST IS POSITIONED CLOSE TO MULTI-MODEL
CONSENSUS WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
150600Z IS 28 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 152100Z AND 160900Z.//

REMARKS:
152100Z POSITION NEAR 20.6S 62.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (IMELDA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 370 NM
EAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 05 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS
RAPIDLY DECAYING DEEP CONVECTION, NOW SHEARED ABOUT 70 NM EAST OF
THE SYSTEM CENTER. A 151545Z SSMIS IMAGE DEPICTS WELL-DEFINED,
TIGHTLY-WRAPPED SHALLOW CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE LOW-
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER WITH AN ISOLATED AREA OF DEEP CONVECTION
NEAR 20S 64E. THERE IS GOOD CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION BASED
ON THIS IMAGE AS WELL AS A 151719Z AMSU COMPOSITE IMAGE. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 55 KNOTS BASED ON DVORAK INTENSITY
ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 45 TO 65 KNOTS. TC 21S IS CURRENTLY TRACKING
SOUTHWARD ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE LOW- TO MID-LEVEL
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE BUT IS FORECAST TO TURN WESTWARD AS IT WEAKENS AND
BEGINS TO STEER UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A BROAD, TRANSITORY
MIDLATITUDE RIDGE BUILDING TO THE SOUTH. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS
IN GOOD AGREEMENT, THEREFORE, THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC
FORECAST TRACK. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN THROUGH THE
FORECAST PERIOD DUE TO PERSISTENT MODERATE TO STRONG VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH SUBTROPICAL WESTERLY FLOW, AND MARGINAL SST
VALUES NEAR 26C. SURFACE WINDS OVER THE SOUTHERN SEMI-CIRCLE ARE
FORECAST TO REMAIN NEAR GALE-FORCE LEVELS DUE TO THE ENHANCED
GRADIENT ASSOCIATED WITH THE AFOREMENTIONED HIGH BUILDING SOUTH OF
THE SYSTEM. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 151800Z IS 22 FEET.

160900Z POSITION NEAR 21.2S 62.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 21S (IMELDA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 410 NM
EAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 05 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS A
FULLY EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) REMAINS, BUT WITH
NO DEEP CONVECTION OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. A RECENT 160431Z ASCAT
PASS REVEALS CENTRAL WINDS BETWEEN 25 TO 35 KNOTS. THE CURRENT
INTENSITY HAS BEEN KEPT ON THE HIGH SIDE OF THE SCATTEROMETRY DATA.
RECENT OBSERVATIONS FROM PLAINE CORAIL, MAURITIUS INDICATE WIND
SPEEDS HAVE BEEN AROUND 20 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS, SUPPORTING
THE WEAKENING TREND OF THE LLCC. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES
INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS), CURRENTLY AT HIGH LEVELS
(GREATER THAN 30 KNOTS), HAS BEEN DIRECTLY IMPACTING THE SYSTEM. IN
ASSOCIATION WITH MARGINAL SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (SST), THE VWS
HAS LED TC 21S TO RAPIDLY WEAKEN FROM THE PREVIOUS FORECAST. MODEL
GUIDANCE INDICATES THE VWS AND SST VALUES WILL REMAIN UNFAVORABLE
UNTIL THE SYSTEM COMPLETELY DISSIPATES. THIS IS THE FINAL WARNING ON
THIS SYSTEM BY THE JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI. THE SYSTEM
WILL BE CLOSELY MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF REGENERATION. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 160600Z IS 21 FEET.//
