MSGID/GENADMIN/JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI//
SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
145 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 5.7S 83.3E TO 9.9S 79.5E 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 27 TO 32 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY AT
080130Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 6.2S
82.6E. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS:
   THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 6.0S 83.5E
IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 6.2S 82.6E, APPROXIMATELY 605 NM EAST OF DIEGO
GARCIA. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS FORMATIVE BANDING
HAS SIGNIFICANTLY CONSOLIDATED AND DEEPENED AS THE LLCC HAS BECOME
BETTER-DEFINED. A SERIES OF MICROWAVE IMAGES, THE LATEST OF WHICH IS A
072334Z SSMI-S MICROWAVE PASS, SHOW THE PROGRESSIVE CONSOLIDATION OF
THE FEEDER BANDS THAT ARE MOSTLY TO THE SOUTH OF THE LLCC. UPPER-LEVEL
ANALYSIS SHOWS THE SYSTEM IS JUST TO THE NORTH OF A RIDGE AXIS IN AN
AREA OF MODERATE TO STRONG (20-30 KNOTS) NORTHERLY VWS. THE VWS,
HOWEVER, IS OFFSET BY EXCELLENT WESTWARD AND POLEWARD OUTFLOW. THE
CYCLONE IS EXPECTED TO START TRACKING MORE POLEWARD INTO LOWER VWS.
THE DYNAMIC MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW CONTINUED DEVELOPMENT OVER THE
NEXT 24 HOURS. BASED ON RECENT SCATTEROMETRY DATA, MAXIMUM SUSTAINED
SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 27 TO 32 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL
PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1004 MB. IN VIEW OF THE SIGNIFICANT
CONSOLIDATION AND ANTICIPATED LOWER VWS, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24
HOURS IS UPGRADED TO HIGH.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
090200Z.  //

REMARKS:
081500Z POSITION NEAR 6.1S 84.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 24S (TWENTYFOUR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 685 NM
EAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-NORTHEASTWARD AT 04
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY REVEALS A CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION WITH A
BUILDING CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST FEATURE. A 081133Z TRMM 37 GHZ
MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS THE OVERALL IMPROVED STRUCTURE OF THE SYSTEM
WITH DEEPENING CENTRAL CONVECTION AND SHALLOW BROKEN CONVECTIVE
BANDING ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY AS THE SYSTEM HAS BECOME MORE
TIGHTLY WRAPPED. THERE IS FAIR CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION
BASED UPON THE AFOREMENTIONED IMAGERY. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS
ASSESSED AT 35 KNOTS WHICH IS SLIGHTLY HIGHER THAN A DVORAK
INTENSITY ESTIMATE OF 30 KNOTS FROM PGTW, BASED UPON THE IMPROVED
ORGANIZATION AND DEEPENING CONVECTION. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS REVEALS
A MODERATELY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT AS FAVORABLE OUTFLOW IS OFFSET BY
MODERATE TO STRONG VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (20-30 KNOTS). TC 24S HAS
BEEN NEARLY QUASI-STATIONARY OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS AS IT HAS
CONTINUED TO CONSOLIDATE. TC 24S IS FORECAST TO DRIFT SLOWLY
SOUTHWEST TO SOUTH OVER THE NEXT DAY AS IT CONTINUES TO IMPROVE IN
ORGANIZATION AND INTENSIFY. PAST TAU 24, A DEEP-LAYERED
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH WILL ASSUME STEERING AND DRIVE THE
SYSTEM WEST, CONTINUALLY INTENSIFYING UNDER THE MODERATELY FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT OF EXCELLENT OUTFLOW AND MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR.
DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS SPREAD, BUT GENERALLY AGREES WITH A SLOW
SOUTHERN TRACK THAT BECOMES WESTWARD IN THE LATER TAUS. DUE TO THIS
SPREAD, THE FORECAST TRACK LIES CLOSE TO MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS WITH
LOW CONFIDENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 081200Z IS 12
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 090300Z AND 091500Z. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES

REMARKS:
082100Z POSITION NEAR 6.2S 85.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 24S (TWENTYFOUR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 771 NM
EASTWARD OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS A CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION (LLCC) WITH A
BUILDING CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST (CDO) FEATURE. A 081429Z SSMIS
MICROWAVE IMAGE REVEALS THE CDO FEATURE IS SHEARED OFF TO THE WEST,
PARTIALLY EXPOSING THE LLCC. THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL
POSITION BASED UPON THE AFOREMENTIONED IMAGERY. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 40 KNOTS BASED ON A 081606Z ASCAT PASS.
UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS REVEALS A MODERATELY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT AS
MODERATE TO STRONG (20-30 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) IS OFFSET
BY STRONG WESTWARD AND POLEWARD OUTFLOW. TC 24S HAS BEEN QUASI-
STATIONARY OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS AS IT HAS CONTINUED TO
CONSOLIDATE. TC 24S IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN A COL AREA AND IS SLOWLY
DRIFTING SOUTHWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE EASTERN EXTENSION OF
THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. PAST TAU 72, A DEEP-LAYER SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
WILL DEVELOP TO THE SOUTH AND ASSUME THE STEERING, DRIVING THE
SYSTEM TO THE WEST. TC 24S WILL CONTINUE TO ORGANIZE AND INTENSIFY
AS VWS BEGINS TO DECREASE AS IT APPROACHES THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
AXIS. THE MAXIMUM INTENSITY WILL BE ACHIEVED AT APPROXIMATELY TAU 72
AFTER THE SYSTEM CROSSES INTO THE POELWARD SIDE OF THE RIDGE AND
BECOMES EXPOSED TO THE WESTERLIES. BEYOND TAU 72 THE SYSTEM WILL
BEGIN TO DECAY DUE TO INCREASING VWS. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS
SPREAD, BUT GENERALLY AGREES WITH A SLOW SOUTHERN TRACK THAT BECOMES
WESTWARD IN THE LATER TAUS. EGRR AND WBAR ARE EASTWARD OUTLIERS
ACTING TO ERRONEOUSLY SKEW CONW TO THE EAST. THEREFORE THE JTWC
FORECAST TRACK IS PLACED SLIGHTLY WEST OF CONW. DUE TO THIS SPREAD,
THE FORECAST TRACK LIES CLOSE TO MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS WITH LOW
CONFIDENCE. JUSTIFICATION FOR RELOCATION: RELOCATED INITIAL POSITION
OF TC 24S FURTHER EASTWARD BASED ON NEWLY AVAILABLE MICROWAVE
IMAGERY. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 081800Z IS 14 FEET. NEXT

REMARKS:
090900Z POSITION NEAR 7.1S 85.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 24S (TWENTYFOUR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 774 NM
EAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
(MSI) DEPICTS AN EXPOSED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH A
LARGE CLUSTER OF DEEP CONVECTION DISPLACED OVER THE WESTERN SEMI-
CIRCLE. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE MSI WITH GOOD
CONFIDENCE. DUE TO THE SHEARED NATURE OF THE SYSTEM, DVORAK
ESTIMATES APPEAR LOW AND RANGE FROM 30 TO 35 KNOTS. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS ASSESSED SLIGHTLY HIGHER AT 40 KNOTS HEDGED CLOSER TO A
RECENT SATCON ESTIMATE OF 48 KNOTS. TC 24S IS LOCATED WITHIN A
MARGINAL ENVIRONMENT WITH STRONG (30 TO 40 KNOTS) EASTERLY VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR (VWS) OFFSET BY FAVORABLE POLEWARD OUTFLOW. TC 24S IS
FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING SOUTHWARD ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY
OF THE SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE THROUGH TAU 48. THEREAFTER, THE
SYSTEM SHOULD TURN INCREASINGLY WESTWARD AND ACCELERATE AS IT
TRANSITIONS TO THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A STRONG HIGH ANCHORED TO
THE SOUTH. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE UKMO TRACKER, WHICH TRACKS THE
SYSTEM EASTWARD, DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR AGREEMENT. THE
MODELS ARE CONSISTENT IN TURNING TC 24S WESTWARD BUT DIFFER IN THE
TIMING OF THIS TURN. THE JTWC FORECAST IS CONSISTENT WITH THE
PREVIOUS FORECAST AND CONTINUES TO FAVOR THE GFS AND ECMWF SOLUTION.
THE JTWC FORECAST IS POSITIONED WEST OF THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS
AND FASTER TO OFFSET THE UNLIKELY UKMO SOLUTION. THERE IS LOW
CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST DUE TO THE MODEL SPREAD AND DIFFERENCES
IN TIMING OF THE WESTWARD TURN. AFTER TAU 12, VWS IS FORECAST TO
RELAX, ALLOWING FOR FURTHER CONSOLIDATION AND INTENSIFICATION. TC
24S SHOULD PEAK AT ABOUT 65 KNOTS BY TAU 72 THEN GRADUALLY WEAKEN
DUE TO THE INFUSION OF COOLER, DRIER AIR ASSOCIATED WITH THE
AFOREMENTIONED HIGH TO THE SOUTH. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
090600Z IS 14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 092100Z AND 100900Z.//

REMARKS:
092100Z POSITION NEAR 8.2S 86.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 24S (TWENTYFOUR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 805 NM
EASTWARD OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED (EIR)
IMAGERY DEPICTS A LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) LOCATED UNDER
THE EASTERN SEMICIRCLE OF A LARGE CLUSTER OF DEEP CONVECTION. THE
INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE EIR AND PGTW FIX WITH FAIR
CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 45 KNOTS BASED ON A
RECENT ASCAT PASS AND A SATCON ESTIMATE OF 52 KNOTS. TC 24S
CONTINUES TO BE LOCATED IN A MARGINAL ENVIRONMENT WITH STRONG (40 TO
50 KNOTS) EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) OFFSET BY FAVORABLE
POLEWARD OUTFLOW. TC 24S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING SOUTHWARD
ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE
THROUGH TAU 48. THEREAFTER, THE SYSTEM SHOULD TURN INCREASINGLY
WESTWARD AND ACCELERATE AS IT TRANSITIONS TO THE STEERING INFLUENCE
OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR). DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS BIFURCATED
AS GFS AND ECMWF DEPICT A WESTWARD TREND, NVGM AND GFDN DEPICT A
QUASI-STATIONARY MOTION, AND WBAR AND EGRR DEPICT AN EASTWARD TREND.
THE JTWC FORECAST IS CONSISTENT WITH THE PREVIOUS FORECAST AND
HEDGES JUST WEST OF THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS, CONSISTENT WITH THE
WESTWARD TRENDING MODEL GUIDANCE. THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE
FORECAST DUE TO THE MODEL SPREAD AND DIFFERENCES IN TIMING OF THE
WESTWARD TURN. TC 24S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO CONSOLIDATE AND
INTENSIFY AS VWS RELAXES AND THE SYSTEM TRACKS SOUTHWARD THROUGH TAU
48. TC 24S SHOULD PEAK AT ABOUT 70 KNOTS BY TAU 72 THEN GRADUALLY
WEAKEN DUE TO THE INFUSION OF COOLER, DRIER AIR ASSOCIATED WITH THE
STR BUILDING TO THE SOUTH. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
091800Z IS 18 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 100900Z AND 102100Z.//

REMARKS:
102100Z POSITION NEAR 9.5S 86.8E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 24S (JAMALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 854 NM
EASTWARD OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 06
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED (IR) SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS A PARTIALLY-EXPOSED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
(LLCC) WITH A LARGE CLUSTER OF DEEP CONVECTION DISPLACED OVER THE
WESTERN SEMI-CIRCLE. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE IR IMAGERY
ALONG WITH A 101523Z AMSU-B IMAGE WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 35 KNOTS BASED ON CONGRUENT DVORAK
ESTIMATES FROM PGTW, KNES, AND FMEE. TC 24S IS LOCATED WITHIN A
MARGINAL ENVIRONMENT WITH STRONG (30 TO 40 KNOTS) EASTERLY VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR (VWS) SLIGHTLY OFFSET BY FAVORABLE POLEWARD OUTFLOW. TC
24S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING SLOWLY TO THE SOUTH-SOUTHEAST
ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE
THROUGH TAU 24. THEREAFTER, THE SYSTEM SHOULD TURN INCREASINGLY
WESTWARD AND ACCELERATE AS IT TRANSITIONS TO THE STEERING INFLUENCE
OF A STRONG HIGH ANCHORED TO THE SOUTH. THE MODELS ARE NOW
CONSISTENT IN TURNING TC 24S WESTWARD BUT DIFFER IN
THE TIMING OF THIS TURN. THE JTWC FORECAST IS CONSISTENT WITH THE
PREVIOUS FORECAST AND CONTINUES TO FAVOR THE GFS AND ECMWF SOLUTION.
THE JTWC FORECAST IS POSITIONED CLOSE TO THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS
AND SLIGHTLY FASTER TO OFFSET THE UKMO SOLUTION. BASED ON THE
IMPROVED MODEL AGREEMENT, THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST.
AFTER TAU 24, VWS IS FORECAST TO RELAX AND BECOME MORE IN PHASE WITH
STORM MOTION, ALLOWING FOR FURTHER CONSOLIDATION AND
INTENSIFICATION. TC 24S SHOULD PEAK AT ABOUT 65 KNOTS BY TAU 72 THEN
GRADUALLY WEAKEN DUE TO THE INFUSION OF COOLER, DRIER AIR ASSOCIATED
WITH THE AFOREMENTIONED HIGH TO THE SOUTH. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 101800Z IS 14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 110900Z AND 112100Z.//

REMARKS:
110900Z POSITION NEAR 10.7S 87.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 24S (JAMALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 900 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 07
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY (MSI) DEPICTS A FULLY-EXPOSED AND WELL DEFINED LOW-LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH BROKEN CONVECTION WELL DISPLACED FROM
THE LLCC IN THE NORTHWEST AND SOUTHERN PERIPHERIES. THE INITIAL
POSITION IS BASED UPON THE MSI IMAGERY WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE DUE TO
THE WELL DEFINED AND EXPOSED NATURE OF THE LLCC. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS BEING HELD AT 35 KNOTS AS DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES RANGE FROM 25 TO 35 KNOTS AND THE LATEST CIRA RAMMB
PRODUCT SHOWS AN INTENSITY OF 37 KNOTS. TC 24S IS CURRENTLY LOCATED
WITHIN A POOR TO MARGINAL ENVIRONMENT OF STRONG (30 TO 40 KNOTS)
EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) WHICH IS SLIGHTLY BEING OFFSET BY
FAVORABLE POLEWARD OUTFLOW. TC 24S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING
SLOWLY TO THE SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST FOR THE NEXT DAY IN AN OVERALL WEAK
STEERING ENVIRONMENT WHILE STRUGGLING TO MAINTAIN ITS CURRENT
INTENSITY DUE TO THE STRONG VWS. AFTER TAU 24, TC 24S SHOULD TURN
WESTWARD AND ACCELERATE AS IT TRANSITIONS TO THE STEERING INFLUENCE
OF A STRONG HIGH ANCHORED TO THE SOUTH. TC 24S SHOULD BEGIN TO
INTENSIFY IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS AS IT TRACKS INTO A MORE FAVORABLE
UPPER-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT OF LOWER VWS, REACHING A PEAK INTENSITY OF
60 KNOTS NEAR TAU 96. AFTERWARDS, COOL DRY AIR FROM THE
AFOREMENTIONED HIGH TO THE SOUTH IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN TO WEAKEN THE
SYSTEM. DYNAMIC MODELS CONTINUE TO BE CONSISTENT IN TURNING TC 24S
WESTWARD, BUT DIFFER SLIGHTLY IN THE TIMING OF THIS TURN AND THE
ACCELERATION OF THE WESTWARD TRACK. THE JTWC FORECAST IS SLIGHTLY
FASTER THAN THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS, FAVORING THE ECMWF AND GFS
SOLUTIONS, DUE TO AN ERRATIC UKMO SOLUTION. DUE TO OVERALL GOOD
AGREEMENT OF THE DYNAMIC MODELS, HIGH CONFIDENCE REMAINS IN THE
FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 110600Z IS 14
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 112100Z AND 120900Z.//
