MSGID/GENADMIN/JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI//
SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 285 NM RADIUS OF 12.6S 70.4E 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 052300Z INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 13.4S 72.0E. THE SYSTEM IS
MOVING WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 13.7S
72.8E, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 13.4S 72.0E, APPROXIMATELY 370 NM SOUTH
OF DIEGO GARCIA. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS DEEP
CONVECTIVE BANDING SLOWLY WRAPPING INTO A CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER, WHICH IS ALSO EVIDENT IN A 051656Z METOP-A
MICROWAVE IMAGE. A 051856Z SCATTEROMETER PASS SHOWS AN ELONGATED
CIRCULATION WITH 25 TO 30 KNOT WINDS ALONG THE NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN
PERIPHERIES WITH WEAKER (20 TO 25 KNOT) WINDS IN THE CORE. UPPER-
LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS LOCATED IN A FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW TO MODERATE (10 TO 15 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
AND GOOD EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. WARM (GREATER THAN 28 DEGREES CELSIUS)
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND HIGH OCEAN HEAT CONTENT ARE ALSO
CONDUCIVE FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS
ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS
ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1000 MB. DUE TO IMPROVING CONVECTION AND
ORGANIZATION, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT
TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS HIGH.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
062330Z.

REMARKS:
062100Z POSITION NEAR 13.1S 70.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 14S (FOURTEEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 377 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 07 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY (MSI) DEPICTS CONSOLIDATED DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING OVER THE
NORTHERN SEMI-CIRCLE SLOWLY WRAPPING INTO AN EXPOSED LOW-LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 061730Z METOP-B MICROWAVE IMAGE REVEALS
THE BULK OF THE DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING IS LOCATED OVER THE
NORTHWEST QUADRANT OF THE LLCC AND IS WRAPPING TOWARDS THE
CENTER. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE MSI AND MICROWAVE IMAGE
WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. A RECENT ASCAT PASS INDICATES A 30 KNOT
CIRCULATION WITH 35 KNOT WIND BARBS ALONG THE NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN
PERIPHERIES. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 30 KNOTS IS BASED ON THE
AFOREMENTIONED ASCAT PASS AND HEDGES HIGHER THAN DVORAK ESTIMATES
FROM PGTW, KNES AND FMEE. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM
IS LOCATED IN A MARGINALLY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH MODERATE (15
TO 20 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR OFFSET BY GOOD EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW.
TC 14S IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT, LEADING
TO SLOW MOVEMENT AND IS EXPECTED TO TURN SOUTHEASTWARD IN THE NEAR
TERM AS A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) BUILDS IN FROM THE EAST. AFTER TAU
48, TC 14S IS FORECAST TO TURN SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AS THE STR WILL
DOMINATE THE STEERING PATTERN THROUGHOUT THE REMAINDER OF THE
FORECAST PERIOD. MOREOVER, IMPROVING UPPER-LEVEL CONDITIONS, WARM
(GREATER THAN 28 DEGREES CELSIUS) SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND HIGH
OCEAN HEAT CONTENT ARE CONDUCIVE FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT, ALLOWING
THE INTENSITY TO PEAK AT 60 KNOTS BY TAU 72. DUE TO A WEAK STEERING
ENVIRONMENT IN THE NEAR TERM AND A SLIGHT SPREAD AMONG AVAILABLE
MODEL TRACKERS, THERE IS OVERALL LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST
TRACK, WHICH IS POSITIONED CLOSE TO CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 061800Z IS 8 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 070900Z AND
072100Z. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS REF A, JOINT TYPHOON

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 14S (FOURTEEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 814 NM
EAST-NORTHEAST OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 08
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY (MSI) DEPICTS AN EXPOSED, ELONGATED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC) WITH DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING OVER THE NORTHERN SEMI-
CIRCLE. DESPITE THE LACK OF STRONG DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING, A
070309Z SSMIS IMAGE DEPICTS TIGHTLY-CURVED SHALLOW BANDING. A
070436Z ASCAT PARTIAL IMAGE CONTINUES TO INDICATE A BROAD
CIRCULATION EMBEDDED WITHIN THE MONSOON TROUGH. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS
SHOWS A MARGINAL ENVIRONMENT WITH GOOD EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW BUT
RESTRICTED POLEWARD OUTFLOW. VERTICAL WIND SHEAR HAS DECREASED TO
MODERATE LEVELS (15 TO 20 KNOTS) BUT IS HINDERING CONVECTIVE
DEVELOPMENT. THERE IS GOOD CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION BASED
ON THE MSI. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 35 KNOTS BASED ON

REMARKS:
072100Z POSITION NEAR 16.2S 69.6E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 14S (FOURTEEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 566 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT
07 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS PERSISTENT DEEP CENTRAL CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH A
CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 071709Z METOP-B
37 COMPOSITE MICROWAVE MAGE REVEALS TIGHTLY-CURVED SHALLOW BANDING
WRAPPING INTO THE LLCC. A 071711Z ASCAT PARTIAL IMAGE CONTINUES TO

UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS SHOWS A MARGINAL ENVIRONMENT WITH MODERATE
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND GOOD EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. THE INITIAL
POSITION IS BASED THE AFOREMENTIONED MICROWAVE IMAGE WITH HIGH
CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS HEDGED HIGHER THAN DVORAK
ESTIMATES OF 35 KNOTS FROM PGTW, KNES AND FMEE. TC 14S IS CURRENTLY
LOCATED IN A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT, LEADING TO SLOW SOUTHWARD
MOVEMENT, BUT IS EXPECTED TO TURN EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD IN THE NEAR

STR BUILDS IN TO THE SOUTH. DYNAMIC MODELS INDICATES AN UPPER-LEVEL
TROUGH IS CURRENTLY POSITIONED TO THE SOUTHEAST, WHICH IS FORECAST
TO HINDER FURTHER DEVELOPMENT AS A RESTRICTS OUTFLOW. BY TAU 72, TC
14S IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN AS IT ENCOUNTERS INCREASING VWS AND COOL
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES, LEADING TO DISSIPATION BY TAU 96. DUE TO A
WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT IN THE NEAR TERM AND A SLIGHT SPREAD AMONG
AVAILABLE MODEL TRACKERS IN THE EARLY TAUS, THERE IS OVERALL LOW
CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK, WHICH IS POSITIONED CLOSE TO
CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 071800Z IS 14 FEET.

REMARKS:
080900Z POSITION NEAR 15.0S 70.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 14S (FOBANE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 500 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT
07 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS AN EXPANSIVE, ALBEIT SHALLOW CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST
FEATURE, IS OBSCURING THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). BASED
ON MICROWAVE SATELLITE PASSES OVER THE PAST 18 HOURS, THE LLCC
APPEARS TO HAVE LOOPED IN A CLOCKWISE MOTION. THE INITIAL POSITION IS
BASED ON A 080418Z ASCAT SCATTEROMETRY DATA. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS
BASED ON CONGRUENT DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW, KNES, AND FIMP. UPPER
LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS 06 DEGREES SOUTH OF THE RIDGE
AXIS IN AN AREA OF MODERATE 20-KNOT VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. HOWEVER, A
STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW IS SUSTAINING THE ASSOCIATED CONVECTION. A
NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTH HAS NUDGED THE CYCLONE FROM A COL
AREA AND IS NOW STEERING IT EASTWARD. AFTER TAU 36, A SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE TO THE SOUTHEAST IS EXPECTED TO ASSUME STEERING AND DRIVE THE
CYCLONE SOUTHWESTWARD. TC 14S IS NOT EXPECTED TO SIGNIFICANTLY
INTENSIFY DUE TO THE SUBSIDENT IMPACT OF A DEEP MID-LATITUDE TROUGH
TO THE SOUTH. TC FOBANE WILL PEAK AT 45 KNOTS BEFORE IT GETS ERODED
BY INCREASING VWS AND COOLING SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES BY TAU 96. THE
AVAILABLE NUMERIC GUIDANCE IS IN AGREEMENT WITH THE EVENTUAL
SOUTHWESTWARD STORM TRACK BUT IS WIDELY SPREAD, LENDING LOW
CONFIDENCE TO THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 080600Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 082100Z AND 090900Z.  //

REMARKS:
082100Z POSITION NEAR 15.7S 72.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 14S (FOBANE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 501 NM
SOUTH OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS
AN ELONGATED SYSTEM WITH FLARING AND BROKEN DEEP CONVECTION WHICH
CONTINUES TO OBSCURE THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A
081648Z AMSU-B MICROWAVE IMAGE REVEALS A SLIGHT INCREASE IN
CONSOLIDATION ALTHOUGH THE BANDING FEATURES ARE BROKEN AND CONFINED
TO THE EASTERN SEMI-CIRCLE. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE
AFOREMENTIONED SATELLITE IMAGERY WITH LOW CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 45 KNOTS BASED ON CONGRUENT DVORAK
INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND KNES. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS
REVEALS A CURRENTLY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT AS AN UPPER-LEVEL LOW IS
POSITIONED TO THE SOUTHEAST AND IS PROVIDING STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW
WHILE THE SYSTEM IS EXPERIENCING ONLY MODERATE (10 TO 20 KNOTS)
LEVELS OF VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). TC FOBANE IS CURRENTLY TRACKING
EAST-SOUTHEAST ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
(STR) THAT IS BUILDING IN SOUTHWEST OF THE SYSTEM. THIS STR IS
EXPECTED TO BE THE DOMINATE STEERING INFLUENCE THROUGH THE REMAINDER
OF THE FORECAST AS IT TURNS TC 14S BACK TO THE SOUTHWEST AS IT MOVES
THE SYSTEM POLEWARD. TC 14S IS EXPECTED TO SLIGHTLY INTENSIFY,
REACHING A PEAK OF 55 KNOTS IN THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS AS THE
FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL SUPPORT CONTINUES. THE PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED
UPPER LEVEL LOW WILL HAVE A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON THE INTENSITY
FORECAST AS IF IT MOVES CLOSER TO THE SYSTEM THE SUBSIDENCE ALOFT
WILL WEAKEN THE SYSTEM AND IF IT OPENS DISTANCE IT COULD ALLOW FOR
FURTHER INTENSIFICATION WITH INCREASED POLEWARD OUTFLOW. AFTER TAU
48, DECREASING SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES WILL BEGIN TO WEAKEN THE
SYSTEM AND LEAD TO ITS DISSIPATION BY TAU 96. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE
IS IN AGREEMENT WITH THE FORECAST TRACK, WHICH IS POSITIONED CLOSE
TO MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS WITH LOW CONFIDENCE DUE TO A SLIGHT SPREAD
IN THE TRACKERS THROUGH THE TURN. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
081800Z IS 14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 090900Z AND 092100Z.//

IN THE MSI LOOP WITH GOOD CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED
ON CONGRUENT DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW, KNES, AND FIMP. UPPER LEVEL
ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS 06 DEGREES SOUTH OF THE RIDGE AXIS
IN AN AREA OF LIGHT (05-10 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND GOOD
EQUATORWARD AND SOUTHEASTWARD OUTFLOW. HOWEVER, A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH
SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM IS CAUSING SUBSIDENCE ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN
PERIPHERY. TC 14S IS CURRENTLY TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY
OF A NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTH. AFTER TAU 12, A MID-LAYERED
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTHEAST WILL ASSUME STEERING AND DEFLECT
THE SYSTEM SOUTHWESTWARD. TC FOBANE IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY UP TO 70
KNOTS OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS AS FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL CONDITIONS
PERSIST. AFTERWARDS, INCREASING VWS AND COOLING SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES WILL GRADUALLY WEAKEN THE SYSTEM. THE AVAILABLE NUMERIC
GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT UP TO TAU 48 BEFORE IT SIGNIFICANTLY
SPREADS. THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST UP TO
TAU 48. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 090600Z IS 18 FEET. NEXT

REMARKS:
092100Z POSITION NEAR 19.4S 75.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 14S (FOBANE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 715 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHEAST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT
21 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY (IR) SHOWS THAT OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS, TC 14S HAS BECOME
MORE CONSOLIDATED AND TIGHTER WRAPPED DESPITE WANING CONVECTION DUE
TO INCREASING SHEAR FROM AN UPPER LEVEL LOW LOCATED SOUTHWEST OF THE
SYSTEM. A RECENT TRMM 37 GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS THE SYSTEM HAS
DECREASED IN SIZE AS IT CONSOLIDATED WHILE SEVERAL PREVIOUS
MICROWAVE IMAGES SHOWED A MICROWAVE EYE FEATURE WHICH HAS FALLEN
APART IN THE LATEST TRMM IMAGE. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED UPON
THE FAIRLY DEFINED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER SEEN IN THE IR LOOP
WITH GOOD CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 60 KNOTS IS BASED ON
AN AVERAGE OF DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM PGTW, KNES,
AND FMEE THAT RANGE FROM 55 TO 65 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS SOUTH OF THE RIDGE AXIS IN AN AREA OF STRONG
(20 TO 30 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND GOOD EQUATORWARD AND
SOUTHEASTWARD OUTFLOW. TC 14S HAS STARTED TO ACCELERATE TO THE SOUTH-
SOUTHEAST ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF A NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO
THE NORTH AND THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) TO
THE EAST. AFTER TAU 12, THE STR WILL BUILD TO THE SOUTHEAST AND
BECOME THE DOMINANT STEERING INFLUENCE AND DEFLECT THE SYSTEM
SOUTHWEST TO WESTWARD. TC FOBANE IS EXPECTED MAINTAIN ITS CURRENT
INTENSITY OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS AS THE CURRENT UPPER LEVEL
CONDITIONS PERSIST. AFTERWARDS, DECREASED POLEWARD OUTFLOW AND
COOLING SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES WILL GRADUALLY WEAKEN THE SYSTEM.
THE AVAILABLE NUMERIC GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT UP TO TAU 72
BEFORE IT SIGNIFICANTLY SPREADS. THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE
JTWC TRACK FORECAST UP TO TAU 72. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
091800Z IS 22 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 100900Z AND 102100Z.//

REMARKS:
100900Z POSITION NEAR 23.0S 71.8E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 14S (FOBANE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 973 NM
EAST OF ST. DENIS, LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 21 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
SHOWS THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER BECAME PARTIALLY EXPOSED AS
THE SYSTEM ACCELERATED SOUTHWESTWARD AFTER A BUILDING SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE (STR) TO THE EAST ASSUMED STEERING. THE INITIAL POSITION IS
BASED ON THE ABOVE ANIMATION WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS BASED ON CONGRUENT DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND KNES.
UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM HAS DRIFTED INTO AN AREA OF
MODERATE TO HIGH (25-30 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. ADDITIONALLY, A
MID-LATITUDE LOW MOVED TO JUST WEST OF THE CYCLONE AND IS DRASTICALLY
ERODING THE NORTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE SYSTEM. HOWEVER, THE STR IS
PROVIDING A POLEWARD OUTFLOW MECHANISM FOR THE REMNANT CONVECTION
ASSOCIATED WITH TC 14S. THE CYCLONE IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE ALONG ITS
TRACK AND GRADUALLY DECAY DUE TO PERSISTENTLY HIGH VWS AND COOLING
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES. TC FOBANE WILL EVENTUALLY DISSIPATE OVER
WATER BY TAU 72, POSSIBLY SOONER. THE AVAILABLE NUMERIC GUIDANCE IS
IN FAIRLY TIGHT AGREEMENT FOR THE NEXT 36 HOURS BEFORE SIGNIFICANTLY
SPREADING OUT - A TYPICAL INDICATION OF A WEAKENING VORTEX. IN VIEW
OF THIS, THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE ONLY TO THE INITIAL PORTION OF THE
JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 100600Z IS 24
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 102100Z AND 110900Z.  //

SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS A WELL ORGANIZED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC) THAT REMAINS TIGHTLY WRAPPED. A RECENT 110457Z ASCAT
PASS MISSED THE CORE WINDS, BUT WAS ABLE TO IDENTIFY THE EASTERN
PERIPHERY HAS WINDS RANGING FROM 35 TO 40 KNOTS, LENDING CREDENCE TO
THE CURRENT INTENSITY OF 45 KNOTS. TOTAL PRECIPITABLE WATER LOOPING
IMAGERY INDICATES WARMER TROPICAL AIR HAS KEPT THE LLCC COCOONED
FROM DRYER AIR WRAPPING ALONG THE SOUTHERN AND WESTERN PERIPHERY
INTO THE NORTHWESTERN QUADRANT OF THE SYSTEM. RECENT AMSU CROSS-
SECTIONS INDICATE THE SYSTEM HAS MAINTAINED A WEAKLY TROPICAL
VERTICAL STRUCTURE IN THE LOW TO MID LEVELS OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS.
HOWEVER, AN UPPER LEVEL LOW LOCATED OVER THE LLCC HAS STIFLED DEEP
CONVECTION FROM DEVELOPING NEAR THE CORE OF TC 14S. MODEL GUIDANCE
HAS BECOME SPLIT BETWEEN TWO SCENARIOS, THE FIRST WITH A STEADY
TRACK WESTWARD, AND THE SECOND BEING A TRACK TO THE SOUTHWEST. THIS
FORECAST FAVORS THE LATTER WITH A SLOW DISSIPATION SCENARIO AS
INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND DECREASING SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES IMPACT THE OVERALL STRUCTURE OF THE LLCC. CURRENTLY
FULL DISSIPATION IS EXPECTED WITHIN THE NEXT 48 HOURS. GIVEN THE
RECENT SHIFT IN MODEL GUIDANCE AND THE TURN TO THE SOUTH-SOUTHWEST
OBSERVED WITH TS 14S, THE CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST TRACK HAS
DECREASED TO LOW CONFIDENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
110600Z IS 18 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 112100Z AND 120900Z.//
