SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
160 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 17.7S 152.0E TO 15.9S 157.1E
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
060000Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 17.7S
153.4E. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING EASTWARD AT 11 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 17.4S
150.1E IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 17.7S 153.4E, APPROXIMATELY 215NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF WILLIS ISLAND, AUSTRALIA. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS AN ELONGATED BUT CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH FLARING DEEP CONVECTION NEAR THE LLCC
AND IMPROVED CONVECTIVE BANDING IN THE NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN
PERIPHERIES. A 052233Z ASCAT PASS REVEALS THE OVERALL ELONGATED
ORIENTATION OF THE SYSTEM AS IT IS EMBEDDED WITHIN THE MONSOON
TROUGH AND ALSO SHOWS THE STRONGEST WINDS ARE LOCATED IN THE
PERIPHERIES. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS CONTINUES TO SHOW A DEVELOPING
ANTICYCLONE NEAR THE CENTER WITH GOOD POLEWARD AND EQUATORWARD
OUTFLOW. THE LLCC IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN AN AREA OF MODERATE (10-20
KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) WITH AREAS OF STRONG VWS LOCATED
JUST TO THE NORTH AND SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES
ARE FAVORABLE AT 28 TO 30 DEGREES CELSIUS. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE
WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS
ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 996 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A
SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS HIGH. THIS
ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
070300Z.//

REMARKS:
071500Z POSITION NEAR 15.4S 156.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 660 NM NORTHWEST OF
NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-NORTHEASTWARD AT 11 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS
THE CONVECTIVE BANDS, ALTHOUGH STILL FRAGMENTED, HAVE EXPANDED,
DEEPENED AND WRAPPED TIGHTER INTO AN ILL-DEFINED LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE MAIN CONVECTIVE AREA IS SLIGHTLY
DISPLACED TO THE WEST OF THE LLCC. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON A
071043Z ASCAT PASS AND FROM A 071041Z AMSU-B MICROWAVE IMAGE WITH
POOR CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON THE DVORAK
ESTIMATE OF 35 KNOTS FROM ABRF. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE
SYSTEM IS IN THE VICINITY OF AN ANTICYCLONE IN AN AREA OF LIGHT TO
MODERATE (10-20 KNOT) EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS); HOWEVER,
THE ANTICYCLONE IS ALSO PRIMARILY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE EXCELLENT
RADIAL OUTFLOW OVER THE SYSTEM. THE CYCLONE IS CURRENTLY TRACKING
ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE. AFTER TAU
48, AN EXTENSION OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE EAST IS EXPECTED TO
BUILD AND ASSUME STEERING, BRINGING THE CYCLONE TO A MORE
SOUTHEASTWARD TRAJECTORY. DUE TO STRONG OUTFLOW AND RELATIVELY LOW
VWS, TC 19P IS EXPECTED TO GRADUALLY INTENSIFY, PEAKING AT 95 KNOTS
BY TAU 72. THE AVAILABLE NUMERICAL GUIDANCE IS IN POOR AGREEMENT WITH
GFDN TO THE EXTREME LEFT OF THE MODEL ENVELOPE AND GFS DEPICTING A
TIGHT CLOCKWISE RECURVATURE INTO AUSTRALIA. THIS FORECAST IS LAID
WITH LOW CONFIDENCE CLOSE TO THE MODEL CONSENSUS. THIS WARNING

KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS FLARING DEEP CENTRAL CONVECTION OVER A WELL-DEFINED
LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED
ON AN EXTRAPOLATION FROM A 072121Z SSMIS 37GHZ IMAGE, CLOSE TO THE
KNES AND ABRF CENTER FIXES, WITH POOR CONFIDENCE DUE TO THE
EXTRAPOLATION METHOD. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON CONGRUENT
DVORAK ESTIMATES OF 45 KNOTS FROM ALL REPORTING AGENCIES (PGTW,
KNES, AND ABRF). UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS WEST
OF AN ANTICYCLONE IN AN AREA OF LIGHT TO MODERATE (10-20 KNOT)
EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY
SHOWS AMPLE EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW WITH ENHANCED EASTWARD OUTFLOW INTO
DEEP TROUGHING NEAR THE DATELINE. ADDITIONALLY, THERE IS SLIGHT
POLEWARD ENHANCEMENT TO THE OUTFLOW PROVIDED BY AN UPPER-LEVEL LOW
OVER EASTERN AUSTRALIA. THE CYCLONE IS CURRENTLY TRACKING
ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE. AFTER TAU
48, AN EXTENSION OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE EAST IS EXPECTED TO
BUILD AND ASSUME STEERING, BRINGING THE CYCLONE TO A MORE
SOUTHEASTWARD TRAJECTORY. ALL ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS SUPPORT FURTHER
INTENSIFICATION DURING THE FORECAST PERIOD WITH A PEAK OF 95 KNOTS
EXPECTED BY TAU 72. TC 19S SHOULD BEGIN TO WEAKEN BY TAU 120 AS VWS
INCREASES AND OCEAN PARAMETERS BECOME LESS FAVORABLE. MODEL GUIDANCE
REMAINS IN POOR AGREEMENT WITH GFS CONTINUING TO DEPICT A CURVE TO
THE SOUTHWEST AND NOGAPS SHOWING A SLOW DRIFT TO THE SOUTH. THE ONLY
MODEL TRACKER THAT HAS REMAINED CONSISTENT AND VERIFIED THE BEST IS
THE ECMWF. THEREFORE, THE CURRENT FORECAST LIES CLOSE TO ITS
SOLUTION AND REMAINS INLINE WITH THE PREVIOUS FORECAST. DUE TO THE
POOR MODEL AGREEMENT, TRACK FORECAST CONFIDENCE REMAINS LOW. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 080000Z IS 15 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
081500Z AND 090300Z.//

REMARKS:
081500Z POSITION NEAR 15.0S 157.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (SANDRA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 645 NM
NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED EASTWARD AT 06 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS
DEEPENED CENTRAL CONVECTION OVER A WELL-DEFINED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER. THE INITIAL POSITION IS EXTRAPOLATED FROM AN EYE FEATURE ON A
080957Z SSMIS 37GHZ IMAGE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS SLIGHTLY HIGHER
THAN THE DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND KNES TO ACCOUNT FOR THE
DEVELOPING EYE IN THE SSMIS MICROWAVE IMAGE. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS WEST OF AN ANTICYCLONE IN AN AREA OF LIGHT TO
MODERATE (10-20 KNOT) EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). ANIMATED
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS AMPLE EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW WITH ENHANCED
EASTWARD OUTFLOW INTO DEEP TROUGHING NEAR THE DATELINE. ADDITIONALLY,
THERE IS SLIGHT POLEWARD ENHANCEMENT TO THE OUTFLOW PROVIDED BY AN
UPPER-LEVEL LOW OVER EASTERN AUSTRALIA. THE CYCLONE IS CURRENTLY
TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE.
AFTER TAU 48, AN EXTENSION OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE EAST IS
EXPECTED TO BUILD AND ASSUME STEERING, BRINGING THE CYCLONE TO A MORE
SOUTHEASTWARD TRAJECTORY. ALL ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS SUPPORT FURTHER
INTENSIFICATION DURING THE FORECAST PERIOD WITH A PEAK OF 100 KNOTS
EXPECTED BY TAU 72. TC 19S SHOULD BEGIN TO WEAKEN BY TAU 96 AS VWS
INCREASES AND OCEAN PARAMETERS BECOME LESS FAVORABLE. MODEL GUIDANCE
HAS COME INTO BETTER AGREEMENT WITH GFS THE SLOWEST AND TO THE RIGHT
OF CONSENSUS. THE CURRENT FORECAST LIES JUST TO THE LEFT OF AND
FASTER THAN CONSENSUS TO OFFSET GFS. DUE TO THE IMPROVED MODEL
AGREEMENT, THERE IS NOW A HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE TRACK FORECAST.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 081200Z IS 20 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (SANDRA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 615 NM
NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD
AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY (MSI) SHOWS DEEP CONVECTION WRAPPING AROUND THE
WESTERN AND NORTHERN SEMI-CIRCLES OF A DEVELOPING YET RAGGED AND
POORLY DEFINED EYE. THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION
BASED ON THE EYE FEATURE IN THE MSI AND A 082309Z AMSU-B MICROWAVE
IMAGE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON CONGRUENT DVORAK ESTIMATES
OF 65 KNOTS FROM PGTW AND KNES. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE
SYSTEM IS JUST WEST OF A POINT SOURCE ANTICYCLONE IN AN AREA OF
LIGHT (05-10 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) WITH FAVORABLE POLAR
AND EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. TC 19P IS CURRENTLY TRACKING ALONG THE
SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE AND FORECAST TO
CONTINUE TO THIS TRACK THROUGH THE NEXT TWO DAYS. AFTER TAU 48, AN
EXTENSION OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE EAST IS EXPECTED TO
AMPLIFY AND ASSUME STEERING, GIVING TC 19P A SLIGHTLY MORE SOUTHERN
COMPONENT. THE CURRENTLY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS WILL ALLOW
TC 19P TO INTENSIFY TO A PEAK OF 90 KNOTS BY TAU 48. AFTER TAU 48,
SHARPLY INCREASING VWS AND DECREASING SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES WILL
BEGIN TO WEAKEN THE SYSTEM. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS IN FAIR
AGREEMENT WITH SLIGHT DIFFERENCES IN TRACK SPEED AND THE EXTENT OF
THE SOUTHERN TRACK. FORECAST CONFIDENCE REMAINS HIGH BASED UPON THE
FAIR AGREEMENT OF THE DYNAMIC MODELS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 090000Z IS 24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 091500Z AND 100300Z.//

REMARKS:
091500Z POSITION NEAR 15.8S 159.8E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (SANDRA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 550 NM
NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD
AT 07 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY INDICATES THAT THE SYSTEM HAS CONSOLIDATED SLIGHTLY OVER THE
PAST TWELVE HOURS WITH INTENSE DEEP CONVECTION LOCATED PRIMARILY
OVER THE NORTHERN SEMI-CIRCLE AND A BANDING EYE. DESPITE THE
ASYMMETRIC CONVECTIVE STRUCTURE, A 090945Z SSMIS 37GHZ IMAGE DEPICTS
TOGHTLY-CURVED CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A WELL-DEFINED LOW-
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER WITH A THICK RING SURROUNDING A MICROWAVE
EYE FEATURE, WHICH MAY INDICATE AN IMMINENT RAPID INTENSIFICATION
PHASE. THERE IS GOOD CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION BASED ON THE
DEVELOPING EYE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 65 KNOTS BASED
ON DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 65 KNOTS. TC 19P IS
TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE
BUT IS EXPECTED TO TURN SOUTHWARD AS IT TRANSITIONS TO THE STEERING
INFLUENCE OF A POLEWARD-ORIENTED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE, POSITIONED TO
THE EAST. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO TRACK SOUTHWARD TO SOUTH-
SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. DYNAMIC
MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS IN FAIR AGREEMENT AND THERE IS HIGH
CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST TRACK. TC 19P IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY
SHARPLY THROUGH TAU 36 UNDER FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS.
AFTER TAU 48, THE SYSTEM SHOULD WEAKEN AS IT TRACKS OVER COOLER SST
AND BEGINS TO ENCOUNTER INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ASSOCIATED
WITH AN ENCROACHING UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 091200Z IS 27 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 100300Z AND 101500Z.//

100300Z POSITION NEAR 16.1S 160.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (SANDRA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 510 NM
NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED EASTWARD AT 05 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
(MSI) INDICATES THAT THE SYSTEM HAS RAPIDLY CONSOLIDATED OVER PAST
TWELVE HOURS WITH DEEP CONVECTION NOW COMPLETELY WRAPPING AROUND A
15NM RAGGED EYE. THIS IS READILY APPARENT IN A 092248Z AMSU-B
MICROWAVE IMAGE. THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION
BASED ON THE READILY VISIBLE EYE IN THE MSI. THE INITIAL INTENSITY
IS ASSESSED AT 85 KNOTS BASED ON AN AVERAGE OF DVORAK INTENSITY
ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 77 TO 90 KNOTS FROM PGTW AND KNES,
RESPECTIVELY. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS REVEALS A CONTINUED FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT AS AMPLE POLEWARD AND EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW REMAINS WITHIN
A LOW (05-10 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ENVIRONMENT. TC 19P IS
CURRENTLY TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE NEAR-
EQUATORIAL RIDGE BUT IS EXPECTED TO TURN SOUTHEASTWARD AS IT
TRANSITIONS TO THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A POLEWARD-ORIENTED
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS AND INCREASE TO A PEAK
INTENSITY OF 100 KNOTS AS ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS REMAIN FAVORABLE.
AFTER TAU 24, THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO TRACK SOUTH TO SOUTH-
SOUTHEASTWARD SLOWLY DECREASING IN INTENSITY AS VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
INCREASES AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH. AFTER TAU 72,
DECREASING SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES WILL ALLOW FOR A FURTHER
DECREASE IN INTENSITY AS THE SYSTEM BEGINS EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION
NEAR TAU 120. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE HAS STARTED TO SPLIT INTO TWO
DIFFERENT SETS OF SOLUTIONS. GFS, GFDN AND NAVGEM FAVOR A SHARPER
TURN TO THE SOUTH IN THE NEXT 12 HOURS WHILE ECMWF, EGRR AND JGSM
TEND TO SHOW A MORE GRADUAL TURN TO THE SOUTH OVER THE NEXT 24
HOURS. DUE TO THIS BIFURCATION OF THE MODELS, THE OFFICIAL FORECAST
LIES CLOSE TO MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS AND FAVORS THE ECMWF SOLUTION
WHICH HAS BEEN THE MOST CONSISTENT WITH CURRENT STORM MOTION. DUE TO
THIS SPREAD IN THE MODELS, THERE IS NOW LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE
OFFICIAL FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 100000Z IS 28
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 101500Z AND 110300Z.//

REMARKS:
101500Z POSITION NEAR 16.8S 161.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (SANDRA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 455 NM
NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
AND RECENT MICROWAVE IMAGERY DEPICT A RAPIDLY CONSOLIDATING SYSTEM
WITH A 30 NM ROUND EYE AND A LARGE CONVECTIVE SIGNATURE. BASED ON
THE EYE, THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION AND RECENT
MOTION. OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS, TC 19P HAS RAPIDLY INTENSIFIED FROM
65 TO 110 KNOTS WITH IMPROVED, NEAR-RADIAL OUTFLOW. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS BASED ON THE HIGHER END OF DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES
RANGING FROM 102 TO 115 KNOTS. TC 19P HAS SLOWED ITS FORWARD MOTION
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS AND HAS TURNED MORE SOUTHWARD AS IT BEGINS
TO TRACK ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE DEEP SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
POSITIONED TO THE EAST. TC 19P IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING
SOUTHWARD THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD AND IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN EXTRA-
TROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT) BY TAU 96 AS IT BEGINS TO INTERACT WITH A
WEAK BAROCLINIC ZONE NEAR LATITUDE 30S. THE SYSTEM SHOULD COMPLETE
ETT BY TAU 120. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THE
BULK OF THE MODELS SUPPORTING THE CURRENT JTWC FORECAST TRACK. GFS
REMAINS AN OUTLIER, CONTINUING TO SHOW AN UNLIKELY SHARP
SOUTHWESTWARD TURN AFTER TAU 72; HOWEVER, ANALYSIS OF THE MODEL
FIELDS INDICATES THAT THE GFS MODEL IS ERRONEOUSLY MERGING THE
SYSTEM INTO AN APPROACHING MIDLATITUDE SHORTWAVE TROUGH. TC 19P IS
EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY TO A PEAK INTENSITY OF 120 KNOTS BY TAU 12 AND
IS FORECAST TO WEAKEN SIGNIFICANTLY AFTER TAU 36 AS THE SYSTEM
ENCOUNTERS STRONG VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND TRACKS OVER COOLER SST. A
SHARPER WEAKENING TREND IS EXPECTED AFTER TAU 72 AS TC 19P TRACKS
OVER VERY COLD SST (LESS THAN 23C). MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT
AT 101200Z IS 33 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 110300Z AND 111500Z.//

REMARKS:
111500Z POSITION NEAR 18.5S 162.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (SANDRA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 350 NM
NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD
AT 05 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED (IR)
SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THAT THE SYSTEM HAS WEAKENED OVER THE
PAST 12 HOURS WITH DEEP CONVECTION DECREASING IN AREAL EXTENT. A
111058Z METOP-A IMAGE DEPICTS A WELL-DEFINED CENTER WITH A MICROWAVE
EYE FEATURE; HOWEVER, DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING HAS BECOME MORE
FRAGMENTED. THERE IS GOOD CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION BASED
ON THE METOP-A IMAGE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 90 KNOTS
BASED ON THE LOWER END OF DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 90
TO 102 KNOTS. TC 19P IS TRACKING SLOWLY ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY
OF THE DEEP SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) POSITIONED TO THE EAST. SINCE
THE STR IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN NORTH-SOUTH ORIENTED, TC 19P IS
FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING SOUTHWARD THROUGH TAU 72. THE SYSTEM
IS FORECAST TO BEGIN EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT) BY TAU 48 AND
SHOULD COMPLETE ETT BY TAU 72. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD
AGREEMENT WITH THE BULK OF THE MODELS SUPPORTING THE CURRENT JTWC
FORECAST TRACK. TC 19P IS TO WEAKEN SIGNIFICANTLY AFTER TAU 24 AS
THE SYSTEM ENCOUNTERS STRONG VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND TRACKS OVER
COOLER SST. A SHARPER WEAKENING TREND IS EXPECTED AFTER TAU 36 AS TC
19P TRACKS OVER VERY COLD SST (LESS THAN 23C). OVERALL, THERE IS
HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 111200Z IS 30 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 120300Z AND 121500Z.//

REMARKS:
130300Z POSITION NEAR 24.1S 161.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (SANDRA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 270 NM
WEST-SOUTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED
SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED
MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER HAS BECOME ALMOST FULLY EXPOSED AS THE CONVECTION HAS
SIGNIFICANTLY WEAKENED AND SHEARED SOUTHWARD. THE INITIAL POSITION IS
BASED ON THE ABOVE ANIMATION WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS BASED ON THE HIGH END OF DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW,
PHFO, AND NFFN. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM HAS MOVED
WELL SOUTH OF THE RIDGE AXIS AND INTO AN AREA OF STRONG (30-40) KNOT
NORTHERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). THE CYCLONE IS TRACKING ALONG
THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A DEEP SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AND IS EXPECTED TO
CONTINUE ALONG THIS TRACK UNTIL IT BECOMES EMBEDDED IN THE BAROCLINIC
ZONE AND BECOMES A COLD CORE LOW BY TAU 48. TC 19P WILL GRADUALLY
WEAKEN AS STRONG VWS PERSISTS AND SSTS DROP TO BELOW 25 CELSIUS AFTER
TAU 24. THERE IS A DISTINCT POSSIBILITY THAT TC SANDRA WILL DISSIPATE
BEFORE END OF FORECAST DUE TO THE HIGH VWS AND LOW SSTS. THE JTWC
FORECAST IS LAID WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE CLOSE TO MODEL CONSENSUS
DESPITE THE MODERATE SPREAD IN THE AVAILABLE NUMERIC GUIDANCE.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 130000Z IS 23 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS
AT 131500Z AND 140300Z.   //

REMARKS:
131500Z POSITION NEAR 26.6S 162.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (SANDRA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 325 NM
SOUTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 12
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) HAS BEEN FULLY
EXPOSED FOR THE PAST 18 HOURS BUT REMAINS WELL ORGANIZED. A RECENT
131015Z ASCAT PASS INDICATED 35 TO 40 KNOT WINDS ALONG THE EASTERN
PERIPHERY. THE CURRENT INTENSITY HAS BEEN MAINTAINED ABOVE THE
DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW, PHFO, AND NFFN, WHICH INDICATE A MUCH
WEAKER SYSTEM THAN THE ASCAT PASS SUGGESTS. TOTAL PRECIPITABLE WATER
IMAGERY INDICATES DRY AIR WRAPPING INTO THE LLCC FROM THE WESTERN
PERIPHERY AND HAS NEARLY SEPARATED THE CENTRAL CORE OF TROPICAL
MOISTURE FROM THE LARGER SOURCE OF TROPICAL MOISTURE TO THE
NORTHEAST. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES A TROUGH TO THE SOUTHWEST
AND RIDGING TO THE NORTHEAST ARE CREATING HIGH LEVELS (30 TO 40
KNOTS) OF VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). CONTINUED INFLOW OF DRY AIR AND
HIGH VWS WILL START THE EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION PROCESS WITHIN THE
NEXT 12 HOURS, AND WILL BE FULLY EXTRA-TROPICAL BY TAU 36. BASED ON
GOOD AGREEMENT IN THE MODEL GUIDANCE, THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN
THE FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 131200Z IS 20
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 140300Z AND 141500Z.//

REMARKS:
140300Z POSITION NEAR 29.6S 162.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (SANDRA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 465 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT
20 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY (MSI) SHOWS THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) HAS
BECOME ELONGATED ALONG AN EAST TO WEST AXIS AND REMAINED FULLY-
EXPOSED DURING THE LAST TWELVE HOURS. THE REMAINING CONVECTION
ASSOCIATED WITH THE SYSTEM IS DISPLACED OVER THE RIGHT FRONT
QUADRANT AND STRATOCUMULUS FIELDS CAN BE SEEN STREAMING IN FROM THE
EAST. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE MSI AND PGTW FIX WITH
POOR CONFIDENCE DUE TO THE POORLY-DEFINED NATURE OF THE LLCC. THE
INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON A PRIOR 131109Z ASCAT PASS THAT SHOWED
A LARGE 40-45 KNOT WIND FIELD OVER THE EASTERN PORTION OF THE
CIRCULATION AND A MORE RECENT 38-42 KNOT OBJECTIVE INTENSITY
ESTIMATE, AS SUBJECTIVE DVORAKS DO NOT ACCURATELY CLASSIFY THE
SYSTEM'S CURRENT STATE. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES TC 19P IS
LOCATED WELL POLEWARD OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AXIS AND JUST EAST OF
A DEVELOPING UPPER-LEVEL LOW. VERTICAL WIND SHEAR IS HIGH AT 30-40
KNOTS AND UPPER-LEVEL DIVERGENCE REMAINS POLEWARD OF THE LLCC DUE TO
SPEED DIVERGENCE FROM THE SUBTROPICAL JET FLOW OVERHEAD. BASED ON
THE ABOVEMENTIONED DYNAMICS OVER TC 19P AND 25 DEGREE CELSIUS SEA
SURFACE TEMPERATURES, THE SYSTEM IS ASSESSED AS EXTRA-TROPICAL AND
WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP INTO A MODERATE MID-LATITUDE COLD-CORE
SYSTEM DURING THE NEXT FEW DAYS. 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 140000Z IS 19 FEET. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 20P
(TIM) WARNINGS (WTPS32 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES.//
