SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 170 NM RADIUS OF 11.1S 158.7E 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 030300Z INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 11.1S 158.7E. THE SYSTEM IS
MOVING SOUTHWESTWARD AT 03 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 10.7S 
159.4E IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 11.1S 158.7E, APPROXIMATELY 695 NM EAST 
OF PORT MORESBY, PAPUA NEW GUINEA. RECENT ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL 
SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS PERSISTENT DEEP CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH 
A CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THERE IS LOW 
CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION AS A LARGE CDO FEATURE IS 
OBSCURING THE IDENTIFICATION OF THE PRECISE SYSTEM CENTER. UPPER-
LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS LOCATED IN A FAVORABLE 
ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND STRONG POLEWARD 
OUTFLOW. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 
KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1001 MB. 
DUE TO THE INCREASED CONSOLIDATION AND IMPROVING DEEP CONVECTIVE 
FEATURES, 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

WRAPPING AROUND THE EASTERN AND SOUTHERN QUADRANTS, WHILE THE 
NORTHWEST QUADRANT REMAINS WEAK AT 10-20 KNOTS. UPPER-
LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS LOCATED IN A MARGINALLY 
FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH MODERATE (15-20) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND 
STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE 
ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED 
TO BE NEAR 1001 MB. DYNAMIC MODELS SHOW CONTINUED CONSOLIDATION AS 
THE SYSTEM TRACKS AWAY FROM THE SOLOMON ISLANDS. DUE TO THE 
FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A 
SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS REMAINS HIGH.

REMARKS:
042100Z POSITION NEAR 11.4S 155.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 23P (TWENTYTHREE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 687 NM
EAST-NORTHEASTWARD OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE CURRENT 
POSITION IS BASED ON A RECENT SATELLITE FIX FROM PGTW AND A 041757Z 
SSMIS PASS. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON A DVORAK SATELLITE FIX 
ESTIMATE OF 35 KNOTS FROM PGTW. TC 23P HAS INTENSIFIED TO THE 
WARNING THRESHOLD INTENSITY OF 35 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS IN 
RESPONSE TO PERSISTENT DEEP CONVECTION BUILDING OVER THE EASTERN 
PORTION OF ITS CONSOLIDATING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). 
THE WESTERN PORTION OF THE LLCC REMAINS EXPOSED DUE TO WESTERLY FLOW 
AND SUBSIDENCE ALOFT INDUCED BY A WEAK UPPER LEVEL LOW TO THE WEST. 
TC 23P IS TRACKING GENERALLY WESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY 
OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE BUILDING TO THE SOUTH AND WEST OF THE SYSTEM. 
GENERALLY WESTWARD MOTION IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE THROUGH THE 
FORECAST PERIOD AS THE STEERING RIDGE PERSISTS, ALTHOUGH THE SYSTEM 
SHOULD DIP POLEWARD IN THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS AS A MID-LATITUDE 
TROUGH PASSING TO THE SOUTH WEAKENS THE RIDGE SLIGHTLY. SLOW 
INTENSIFICATION WILL OCCUR IN THE NEAR TERM AS THE FAVORABLE 
INFLUENCES OF PASSAGE OVER WARM WATER AND GOOD POLEWARD OUTFLOW ARE 
OFFSET BY CONTINUED EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ALOFT. STEADIER 
INTENSIFICATION IS EXPECTED LATER IN THE FORECAST PERIOD AS SHEAR 
RELAXES A BIT. THE NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GENERALLY GOOD 
AGREEMENT WITH THE CURRENT FORECAST SCENARIO, ALTHOUGH TRACK SPEEDS 
VARY, WITH GFS SHOWING A SLOWER TRACK IN THE NEAR TERM IN RESPONSE 
TO ANTICIPATED WEAKENING OF THE STEERING RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. THE 
RIDGE WEAKENING IN GFS IS INCONSISTENT WITH CURRENT EXPECTATIONS FOR 
EVOLUTION OF THE STEERING PATTERN. THUS, THE CURRENT FORECAST TRACK 
FAVORS A SCENARIO DEPICTED BY NAVGEM, THE UKMET MODEL, AND ECMWF, 
WHICH SHOW A STEADY WESTWARD TRACK DRIVEN BY A CONTINUOUS, UNBROKEN 
RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 041800Z IS 12 
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 050900Z AND 052100Z. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES 
AND CANCELS REF A, JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI 040321Z APR

REMARKS:
050900Z POSITION NEAR 11.9S 155.6E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23P (TWENTYTHREE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 652 NM
EAST-NORTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 03 
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE 
IMAGERY (MSI) DEPICTS IMPROVED DEEP CONVECTION WITH SPIRAL BANDING 
WRAPPED INTO A CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). 
THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE MSI WITH FAIR CONFIDENCE. THE 
CURRENT INTENSITY OF 45 KNOTS IS BASED ON CONGRUENT DVORAK ESTIMATES 
FROM PGTW AND KNES. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS 
LOCATED IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND 
EXCELLENT OUTFLOW. TC 23P IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TRACKING WESTWARD 
ALONG THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE BUILDING TO THE 
SOUTH AND WEST OF THE SYSTEM. THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO DIP POLEWARD 
IN THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS AS A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH PASSING TO THE 
SOUTH WEAKENS THE RIDGE SLIGHTLY. FAVORABLE CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED 
TO PERSIST THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD ALLOWING THE SYSTEM TO 
FURTHER INTENSIFY. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR AGREEMENT; 
HOWEVER, TRACK SPEEDS VARY AMONG AVAILABLE MODEL TRACKERS. DUE TO 
THE UNCERTAINTY OF WEAKENING OF THE STEERING RIDGE IN THE NEAR TERM, 
THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK WHICH IS 
POSITIONED CLOSE TO MULTI-CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT 
AT 050600Z IS 14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 052100Z AND 060900Z.//

REMARKS:
052100Z POSITION NEAR 12.3S 154.8E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 23P (ITA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 599 NM EAST-
NORTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 05 
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON A 
RECENT PGTW SATELLITE FIX AND A 051614Z SSMI PASS. THE CURRENT 
INTENSITY OF 45 KNOTS IS CONSISTENT WITH DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM KNES 
AND PGTW. DEEP CONVECTION HAS PERSISTED ALONG THE EASTERN AND 
SOUTHERN PERIPHERIES OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) OVER 
THE PAST 12 HOURS IN THE PRESENCE OF LIGHT TO MODERATE EASTERLY 
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. TC 23P IS TRACKING GENERALLY WESTWARD ALONG A 
SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE EXTENSION TO THE SOUTH. THIS MOTION 
SHOULD CONTINUE FOR THE NEXT 12 HOURS. HOWEVER, A MID-LATITUDE 
TROUGH PASSING TO THE SOUTH OF TC 23P IS EXPECTED TO INDUCE A BREAK 
IN THE STEERING RIDGE AFTER TAU 12. AS A RESULT, THE CYCLONE WILL 
ENTER A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT AND LIKELY REMAIN NEARLY 
QUASISTATIONARY BETWEEN TAU 24 AND TAU 48. AS THE MID-LATITUDE 
TROUGH TRANSLATES EASTWARD, SUBTROPICAL RIDGING WILL BUILD IN ITS 
WAKE AND IS EXPECTED TO STEER TC 23P BACK TOWARD A WESTWARD TRACK 
AFTER TAU 48. THE SYSTEM WILL INTENSIFY SLOWLY IN THE NEAR TERM, AS 
FAVORABLE POLEWARD OUTFLOW IS OFFSET BY CONTINUING, THOUGH 
DECREASING, VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND POTENTIAL OCEAN COOLING DURING 
THE ANTICIPATED PERIOD OF QUASISTATIONARY MOTION. AFTER TAU 48, 
HOWEVER, GENERALLY STEADIER INTENSIFICATION IS ANTICIPATED. DYNAMIC 
MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN POOR AGREEMENT REGARDING THE EXACT TRACK, 
ALTHOUGH MOST OF THE CONSENSUS MODELS SUPPORT A PERIOD OF 
QUASISTATIONARY MOTION IN THE MEDIUM TERM, FOLLOWED BY THE 
RESUMPTION OF A WESTWARD TO SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK. THE CURRENT 
FORECAST LIES CLOSE TO THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS. HOWEVER, BASED ON 
DIVERGING NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE, THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE 
JTWC FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 051800Z IS 
16 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 060900Z AND 062100Z.//

REMARKS:
062100Z POSITION NEAR 12.3S 153.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 23P (ITA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 525 NM EAST-
NORTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 03 
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON A 
RECENT PGTW SATELLITE FIX AND A 061638Z TRMM IMAGE. THE INTENSITY OF 
45 KNOTS IS CONSISTENT WITH DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM 
PGTW, KNES, AND ABRF. THERE HAS BEEN LITTLE CHANGE TO STORM 
STRUCTURE OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS, WITH DEEP CONVECTION STILL 
PRIMARILY CONCENTRATED OVER THE SOUTHERN AND EASTERN PORTIONS OF THE 
LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. TC 23P HAS ENTERED A WEAK STEERING 
ENVIRONMENT BETWEEN A NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE EAST AND A 
BUILDING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. THE SYSTEM WILL REMAIN IN 
THE WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT FOR THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS BEFORE THE 
BUILDING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE BECOMES FIRMLY ENTRENCHED AND CARRIES THE 
SYSTEM ON A WESTWARD TO SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK THROUGH THE REST OF THE 
FORECAST PERIOD. TC 23P IS LOCATED IN AN AREA OF LOW VERTICAL WIND 
SHEAR, FAVORABLE OUTFLOW ENHANCED BY AN UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH TO THE 
SOUTHEAST, AND WARM SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES. THESE FAVORABLE 
CONDITIONS WILL SUPPORT INTENSIFICATION IN THE NEAR TERM, ALTHOUGH 
OCEAN COOLING DUE TO SLOW TRACK SPEEDS IS EXPECTED TO KEEP THE 
INTENSIFICATION TREND SLOW THROUGH TAU 24. STEADIER INTENSIFICATION 
IS EXPECTED AFTER TAU 24 AS THE SYSTEM PROGRESSES WESTWARD AND 
FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS REMAIN IN PLACE. DYNAMIC MODEL 
GUIDANCE REMAINS IN POOR AGREEMENT REGARDING THE EXACT TRACK, 
ALTHOUGH MOST OF THE CONSENSUS MODELS CONTINUE TO PROJECT A PERIOD 
OF QUASISTATIONARY MOTION IN THE NEAR TERM, FOLLOWED BY A WESTWARD 
TO SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK. THE CURRENT FORECAST TRACK LIES WITHIN THE 
PRIMARY GROUPING OF MODELS, WHICH INCLUDES THE GFS, NAVGEM, UKMET, 
HWRF, AND COAMPS-TC. HOWEVER, BASED ON SPREAD IN THE NUMERICAL MODEL 
GUIDANCE, THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK. 
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 061800Z IS 20 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS 
AT 070900Z AND 072100Z.//

REMARKS:
070900Z POSITION NEAR 12.1S 153.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23P (ITA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 532 NM 
EAST-NORTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD 
AT 02 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL 
SATELLITE IMAGERY (MSI) DEPICTS PERSISTENT DEEP CONVECTION WITH 
SPIRAL BANDING TIGHTLY-WRAPPED INTO A CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL 
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 070403Z NOAA-19 MICROWAVE IMAGE ALSO 
REVEALS TIGHTLY-CURVED CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE WELL-
DEFINED LLCC. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON THE MSI AND ABOVE 
MICROWAVE IMAGE WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. THE CURRENT INTENSITY OF 45 
KNOTS IS BASED ON AN ASSESSMENT OF DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM 
ALL REPORTING AGENCIES. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS 
LOCATED IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW TO MODERATE VERTICAL 
WIND SHEAR AND EXCELLENT OUTFLOW, AS EVIDENT IN THE WATER VAPOR 
IMAGERY. HOWEVER, TC 23P IS UNDER INFLUENCE OF A WEAK STEERING 
ENVIRONMENT BETWEEN A NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE EAST AND A 
BUILDING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH, CAUSING SLOW TRACK SPEEDS 
AND POSSIBLY QUASISTATIONARY MOVEMENT THROUGH TAU 24. BY TAU 36, THE 
BUILDING STR WILL DOMINATE THE STEERING ENVIRONMENT AND DRIVE TC 23P 
ON A WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK. FAVORABLE CONDITIONS AS WELL AS WARM 
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO PERSIST, ALLOWING TC 23P TO 
STEADILY INTENSIFY WITH A PEAK INTENSITY OF 95 KNOTS BY TAU 96.  TC 
23P IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN GRADUALLY AS IT PASSES OVER LAND BY TAU 
120. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN POOR AGREEMENT REGARDING THE EXACT 
TRACK, ALTHOUGH MOST OF THE CONSENSUS MODELS SUPPORT A PERIOD OF 
QUASISTATIONARY MOTION IN THE NEAR TERM, FOLLOWED BY THE RESUMPTION 
OF A WESTWARD TO SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK.  BASED ON DIVERGING NUMERICAL 
MODEL GUIDANCE AND THE UNCERTAINTY OF MOVEMENT IN THE NEAR TERM, 
THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK, WHICH IS 
POSITIONED CLOSE TO THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT 
WAVE HEIGHT AT 070600Z IS 22 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 072100Z AND 
080900Z.//

REMARKS:
072100Z POSITION NEAR 11.7S 153.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23P (ITA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 531 NM
NORTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED NORTHWESTWARD AT 04 
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE 
IMAGERY DEPICTS A CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL CICRULATION CENTER (LLCC) 
OBSCURED BY A CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST FEATURE. A 071543Z TRMM IMAGE 
INDICATES TIGHTLY-CURVED BANDING WRAPPING INTO A WELL-DEFINED LLCC, 
WHICH SUPPORTS THE INITIAL POSITION WITH GOOD CONFIDENCE. ANIMATED 
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS EXCELLENT POLEWARD OUTFLOW, ENHANCED BY 
STRONG MIDLATITUDE WESTERLIES. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 
60 KNOTS BASED ON AN AVERAGE OF DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 55 TO 
65 KNOTS. TC 23P HAS TURNED WESTWARD OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS AND IS 
FORECAST TO ACCELERATE WESTWARD TO WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AS THE MID-
LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) BUILDS OVER THE CORAL SEA. THE BULK OF 
THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC GUIDANCE IS IN TIGHT AGREEMENT THROUGH TAU 48, 
THEREFORE, THE FORECAST IS POSITIONED CLOSE TO THE MULTI-MODEL 
CONSENSUS. THERE IS INCREASING UNCERTAINTY AFTER TAU 48 DUE TO AN 
APPROACHING MAJOR SHORTWAVE TROUGH, CURRENTLY POSITIONED OVER 
WESTERN AUSTRALIA, WHICH WILL SERVE TO WEAKEN THE WESTERN EXTENT OF 
THE STR AND PROVIDE A POLEWARD STEERING PATTERN. THE JTWC FORECAST 
FAVORS THE NAVGEM AND GFS SOLUTIONS AS THE ECMWF AND UKMO SOLUTIONS 
APPEAR UNLIKELY AND DRIVE THE SYSTEM WESTWARD OVER THE GULF OF 
CARPENTARIA INTO THE AFOREMENTIONED TROUGH. TC 23P IS FORECAST TO 
INTENSIFY TO A PEAK INTENSITY OF 110 KNOTS BY TAU 72 DUE TO 
FAVORABLE POLEWARD OUTFLOW AND WARM SST (28 TO 29 CELSIUS). AFTER 
TAU 72, THE SYSTEM WILL WEAKEN DUE TO LAND INTERACTION BUT IS 
EXPECTED TO REMAIN STRONG DUE TO THE CLOSE PROXIMITY TO WATER AS IT 
RE-CURVES SOUTHWARD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 071800Z IS 
22 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 080900Z AND 082100Z.//

REMARKS:
080900Z POSITION NEAR 11.5S 152.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 23P (ITA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 507 NM
NORTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-
NORTHWESTWARD AT 03 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS.
ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY (MSI) DEPICTS A 
CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL CICRULATION CENTER (LLCC) 
OBSCURED BY A CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST FEATURE. DEEP CENTRAL 
CONVECTION IS BUILDING OVER THE LLCC AS THE SYSTEM BEGINS TO MOVE 
AWAY FROM SUDEST ISLAND. A 080515Z PARTIAL AMSU 89 GHZ IMAGE DEPICTS 
THE LLCC SURROUNDED BY TIGHTLY CURVED BANDING ALONG THE EASTERN SEMI-
CIRCLE, AND SUPPORTS THE INITIAL POSITION. MSI SHOWS EXCELLENT 
POLEWARD OUTFLOW REMAINS, ENHANCED BY STRONG MIDLATITUDE WESTERLIES. 
THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 65 KNOTS BASED ON DVORAK 
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND KNES, WITH THE ABRF AND 
SATCON ESTIMATES AT 77 KNOTS AND 55 KNOTS, RESPECTIVELY. TC 23P IS 
FORECAST TO ACCELERATE WESTWARD TO WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AS THE MID-
LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) BUILDS OVER THE CORAL SEA. THE BULK OF 
THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS 
MOVEMENT THROUGH TAU 48 AS THE SYSTEM NEARS THE AUSTRALIAN 
COASTLINE. THEREFORE, THE FORECAST IS POSITIONED CLOSE TO THE MULTI-
MODEL CONSENSUS. UNCERTAINTY INCREASES AFTER TAU 48 DUE TO AN 
APPROACHING MAJOR SHORTWAVE TROUGH, CURRENTLY POSITIONED OVER 
WESTERN AUSTRALIA, WHICH WILL SERVE TO WEAKEN THE WESTERN EXTENT OF 
THE STR AND CAUSE A SHARP RECURVATURE TO THE SOUTHEAST. THE GUIDANCE 
VARIES GREATLY IN THE TIMING AND SPEED OF RECURVATURE, LEADING TO 
POOR FORECAST CONFIDENCE AFTER TAU 48. THE ECMWF AND UKMO SOLUTIONS 
ARE SIGNIFICANT OUTLIERS, CONTINUING TO DRIVE THE SYSTEM WESTWARD 
OVER THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA. TC 23P IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY TO A 
PEAK INTENSITY OF AROUND 110 KNOTS AFTER TAU 48 DUE TO FAVORABLE 
POLEWARD OUTFLOW AND WARM SSTS (28 TO 29 CELSIUS). BY TAU 72, THE 
SYSTEM WILL BEGIN TO WEAKEN DUE TO INCREASED LAND INTERACTION BUT IS 
EXPECTED TO REMAIN STRONG DUE TO THE CLOSE PROXIMITY TO WATER AS IT 
RE-CURVES SOUTHWARD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 080600Z IS 
23 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 082100Z AND 090900Z.

REMARKS:
082100Z POSITION NEAR 11.4S 151.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23P (ITA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 489 NM 
NORTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 03 KNOTS 
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE 
IMAGERY DEPICTS A CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) 
WITH A CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST FEATURE. A 081707Z SSMI IMAGE DEPICTS 
TIGHTLY-CURVED DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE LLCC. THERE 
IS GOOD CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION BASED ON THE 
AFOREMENTIONED IMAGERY. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 70 
KNOTS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND KNES RANGING FROM 65 
TO 77 KNOTS. TC 23P HAS TRACKED WESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING 
INFLUENCE OF THE MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) POSITIONED OVER 
THE CORAL SEA. THE BULK OF THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS 
IN FAIR AGREEMENT, THEREFORE, THE FORECAST IS POSITIONED CLOSE TO 
THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS. THE ONLY EXCEPTIONS ARE ECMWF AND JGSM 
SOLUTIONS, WHICH INDICATE AN UNLIKELY WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD TO 
SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK OVER THE CAPE YORK PENINSULA. THERE IS 
INCREASING UNCERTAINTY AFTER TAU 48 DUE TO AN APPROACHING MAJOR 
SHORTWAVE TROUGH, CURRENTLY POSITIONED OVER CENTRAL AUSTRALIA, WHICH 
WILL SERVE TO WEAKEN THE WESTERN EXTENT OF THE STR AND PROVIDE A 
POLEWARD STEERING PATTERN. THE JTWC FORECAST FAVORS THE NAVGEM AND 
GFS SOLUTIONS. TC 23P IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY TO A PEAK INTENSITY 
OF 110 KNOTS BY TAU 48 DUE TO FAVORABLE POLEWARD OUTFLOW AND WARM 
SST (28 TO 29 CELSIUS). BY TAU 72, THE SYSTEM WILL WEAKEN DUE TO 
LAND INTERACTION AS IT SKIRTS THE EAST COAST OF AUSTRALIA. TC 23P IS 
FORECAST TO BEGIN EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION NEAR TAU 120. MAXIMUM 
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 081800Z IS 23 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 
090900Z AND 092100Z.//

REMARKS:
090900Z POSITION NEAR 11.6S 149.8E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 23P (ITA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 413 NM
NORTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 09
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE 
IMAGERY (MSI) DEPICTS TIGHTLY CURVED BANDING WRAPPING INTO A 
CONSOLIDATING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH A CENTRAL 
DENSE OVERCAST FEATURE. A 090537Z TRMM 37GHZ IMAGE DEPICTS A WELL-
FORMED MICROWAVE EYE. THERE IS GOOD CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL 
POSITION BASED ON THE AFOREMENTIONED IMAGERY. THE INITIAL INTENSITY 
IS ASSESSED AT 80 KNOTS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES OF 77 KNOTS FROM 
PGTW AND KNES AND TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE IMPROVING STRUCTURE. TC 
23P HAS TRACKED WESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE MID-
LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) POSITIONED OVER THE CORAL SEA. UPPER 
LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES TC 23P IS IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH 
LOW (05 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND ROBUST OUTFLOW, IN ADDITION 
TO WARM SSTS. THE BULK OF THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE 
REMAINS IN FAIR AGREEMENT, THEREFORE, THE FORECAST IS POSITIONED 
CLOSE TO THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS. THE ONLY EXCEPTIONS ARE THE 
ECMWF AND JGSM SOLUTIONS, WHICH INDICATE AN UNLIKELY WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD TO SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK OVER THE CAPE YORK PENINSULA. 
THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY CALLS FOR AN APPROACHING MAJOR SHORTWAVE 
TROUGH TO WEAKEN THE WESTERN EXTENT OF THE STR AND PROVIDE A 
SOUTHWARD RECURVATURE INTO A POLEWARD STEERING PATTERN. THE JTWC 
FORECAST FAVORS THE NAVGEM, GFS, AND HWRF SOLUTIONS. TC 23P IS 
FORECAST TO INTENSIFY TO A PEAK INTENSITY OF 105-110 KNOTS BY TAU 36 
DUE TO FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS, AFTER WHICH INCREASING 
LAND INTERACTION ALONG THE EASTERN AUSTRALIAN COAST WILL GRADUALLY 
WEAKEN THE SYSTEM. TC 23P IS FORECAST TO BEGIN EXTRA-TROPICAL 
TRANSITION NEAR TAU 120.MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 090600Z 
IS 25 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 092100Z AND 100900Z. //

REMARKS:
092100Z POSITION NEAR 11.9S 148.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 23P (ITA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 355 NM NORTH-
NORTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD 
AT 07 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED 
(EIR) SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST FEATURE 
WITH TIGHTLY CURVED BANDING WRAPPING INTO A CONSOLIDATED LOW LEVEL 
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 091833Z SSMIS IMAGE REVEALS A WELL-
DEFINED MICROWAVE EYE WITH MULTIPLE CONVECTIVE BANDS WRAPPING INTO 
THE SYSTEM CENTER. THERE IS GOOD CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL 
POSITION BASED ON THE AFOREMENTIONED IMAGERY. THE INITIAL INTENSITY 
IS ASSESSED AT 90 KNOTS BASED ON CONGRUENT DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY 
ESTIMATES FROM PGTW, KNES, AND ABRF. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES 
TC 23P IS IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW (05 KNOTS) VERTICAL 
WIND SHEAR AND STRONG EQUATORWARD AND POLEWARD OUTFLOW. TC 23P HAS 
TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWEST UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE MID-LEVEL 
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) POSITIONED OVER THE CORAL SEA. THE BULK OF 
THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE HAS COME INTO TIGHTER AGREEMENT 
AND THE FORECAST REMAINS POSITIONED CLOSE TO THE MULTI-MODEL 
CONSENSUS. THE ONLY EXCEPTION IS THE JGSM SOLUTION, WHICH INDICATES 
AN UNLIKELY WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD TO SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK OVER THE CAPE 
YORK PENINSULA. THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY CALLS FOR AN APPROACHING 
SHORTWAVE TROUGH TO WEAKEN THE WESTERN EXTENT OF THE STR, ALLOWING 
FOR A RECURVE SCENARIO INTO THE MID-LATITUDE STEERING PATTERN. THE 
JTWC FORECAST FAVORS THE NAVGEM, GFS, AND HWRF SOLUTIONS. TC 23P IS 
FORECAST TO INTENSIFY TO A PEAK INTENSITY OF 110 KNOTS BY TAU 24 DUE 
TO FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS. AFTER WHICH INCREASING LAND 
INTERACTION ALONG THE EASTERN AUSTRALIAN COAST WILL GRADUALLY WEAKEN

100900Z POSITION NEAR 12.7S 146.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23P (ITA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 275 NM NORTH-
NORTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 09 
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE 
IMAGERY (MSI) SHOWS MULTIPLE CONVECTIVE BANDS HAVE WRAPPED TIGHTER 
INTO A 10-NM PINHOLE EYE AS THE SYSTEM - CHARACTERIZED BY SHARP 
CURVED OUTLINES - HAS BECOME BETTER DEFINED. THE INITIAL POSITION IS 
BASED ON THE MSI LOOP WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS 
BASED ON CONGRUENT DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND KNES. UPPER LEVEL 
ANALYSIS INDICATES TC 23P IS IN A HIGHLY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH 
LOW (05 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND STRONG RADIAL OUTFLOW. THE 
CYCLONE IS UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE DEEP-LAYERED 
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) ANCHORED OVER THE CORAL SEA. AFTER TAU 12, 
TC 23P WILL BEGIN TO ROUND THE STR AXIS IN ANTICIPATION FOR A 
SOUTHEASTWARD RECURVATURE AS A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH APPROACHING FROM 
THE SOUTHWEST IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN THE STR. AFTER TAU 48, THE 
CYCLONE WILL BEGIN TO ACCELERATE SOUTHEASTWARD THEN BEGIN EXTRA-
TROPICAL TRANSITION BY TAU 96. TC ITA WILL PEAK AT 135 KNOTS OVER 
THE NEXT 24 HOURS AS FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL CONDITIONS PERSIST. 
AFTERWARDS, INTERACTION WITH THE AUSTRALIAN COAST AS IT MAKES 
LANDFALL NORTH OF CAIRNS WILL GRADUALLY ERODE THE SYSTEM. THE 
CYCLONE IS EXPECTED TO EXIT BACK INTO THE CORAL SEA BEFORE TAU 72 
BUT WITH INCREASING VWS AND COOLING SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES, A 
GRADUAL WEAKENING IS EXPECTED. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE 
REMAINS IN A TIGHT AGREEMENT LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE JTWC 
FORECAST THAT IS LAID CLOSE TO THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM 
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 100600Z IS 30 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 
102100Z AND 110900Z.  //

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23P (ITA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 146 NM NORTH 
OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS 
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY 
(MSI) SHOWS A VERY INTENSE AND GEOMETRIC CYCLONE THAT IS FAST 
APPROACHING THE EASTERN COAST OF YORK PENINSULA. THE FEEDER BAND TO 
THE SOUTH HAS BEGUN TO FRAGMENT AS IT INTERACTS WITH THE AUSTRALIAN 
LANDMASS. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE 08-NM EYE FEATURE IN 
THE MSI LOOP WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON 
CONGRUENT DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND KNES. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS 
INDICATES TC 23P IS IN A HIGHLY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW 
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND DUAL CHANNEL OUTFLOW. THE CYCLONE IS 
UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE DEEP-LAYERED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE

AXIS, PRELUDE TO A SOUTHEASTWARD RECURVATURE AS A MID-LATITUDE 
TROUGH APPROACHING FROM THE SOUTHWEST IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN THE STR. 
AFTER TAU 24, THE CYCLONE WILL ACCELERATE SOUTHEASTWARD THEN BEGIN 
EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION BY TAU 48. A RAPID WEAKENING IS EXPECTED 
AFTER THE SYSTEM MAKES LANDFALL OVER THE NEXT FEW HOURS JUST NORTH

112100Z POSITION NEAR 15.8S 145.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23P (ITA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 96 NM NORTH-
NORTHWEST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT
06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. TC 23P MADE LANDFALL NEAR CAPE 
FLATTERY AROUND 11/12Z AND HAS CONTINUED INLAND OVER THE PAST SIX 
HOURS. SURFACE OBSERVATIONS AT CAPE FLATTERY INDICATED MAXIMUM 10-
MINUTE SUSTAINED WINDS OF 61 KNOTS GUSTING TO 86 KNOTS AND A MINIMUM 
SLP OF 962 MB. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY AND CAIRNS RADAR 
IMAGERY SHOW A RAPIDLY WEAKENING SYSTEM WITH DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING 
DISPLACED PRIMARILY OVER THE SOUTHERN SEMI-CIRCLE DUE TO INCREASING 
NORTHERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. THIS STRUCTURE IS ALSO EVIDENT IN AN 
111734Z NOAA-18 IMAGE. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON RADAR 
IMAGERY. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 75 KNOTS. TC 23P IS 
FORECAST TO RE-CURVE SOUTHEASTWARD AFTER TAU 24 ALONG THE SOUTHWEST 
PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AND SHOULD BEGIN EXTRA-TROPICAL 
TRANSITION (ETT) NEAR TAU 36 AS IT ENCOUNTERS INCREASING WESTERLIES 
AND STRONG VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. TC 23P IS FORECAST TO COMPLETE ETT 
NEAR TAU 72 AS IT GAINS FRONTAL CHARACTERISTICS AND ACCELERATES INTO 
THE MIDLATITUDE WESTERLIES. DYNAMIC GUIDANCE IS IN TIGHT AGREEMENT, 
THEREFORE, THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK. 
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 111800Z IS 25 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS

REMARKS:
120900Z POSITION NEAR 17.0S 145.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23P (ITA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 31 NM WEST-
NORTHWEST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 
06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE 
IMAGERY (MSI) REVEALS THAT, DESPITE REMAINING OVERLAND FOR THE 
MAJORITY OF THE DAY, THE STRUCTURE OF THE SYSTEM HAS REMAINED WELL 
DEFINED AND THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) HAS REMAINED 
TIGHTLY WRAPPED. RADAR IMAGERY FROM CAIRNS SHOWS DEEP CONVECTIVE 
BANDING ALONG THE EASTERN FLANK AS THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO RECEIVE 
TROPICAL MOISTURE FROM THE CORAL SEA WHILE THE CONVECTION ALONG THE 
WESTERN FLANK HAS SLIGHTLY SHALLOWED. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED 
UPON THE RADAR ANIMATION ALONG WITH THE MSI LOOP WITH FAIR 
CONFIDENCE DUE TO THE FAIRLY DEFINED LLCC. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 
50 KNOTS IS BASED UPON SURFACE OBSERVATIONS IN THE AREA WITH 46 KNOT 
SUSTAINED 10-MINUTE WINDS RECORDED AT LOW ISLES LIGHTHOUSE. TC 23P 
HAS STARTED TO TRACK SOUTHEAST AND IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE 
SOUTHEASTWARD ALONG THE SOUTHWEST PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE 
AND SHOULD BEGIN EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT) NEAR TAU 36 AS IT 
BEGINS TO ENCOUNTER THE WESTERLIES AND THE ASSOCIATED STRONG 
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR WHILE SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES WILL START TO 
BECOME MARGINAL. TC ITA WILL COMPLETE ETT BY TAU 72 AND BECOME A 
GALE FORCE, COLD CORE LOW. NUMERIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN TIGHT 
AGREEMENT; THEREFORE, THE JTWC FORECAST IS POSITIONED SLIGHTLY 
FASTER AND INSIDE THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS TO OFFSET A KNOWN 
HISTORICAL BIAS DURING THE RECURVE SCENARIO WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE.

REMARKS:
140900Z POSITION NEAR 24.0S 155.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23P (ITA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 260 NM NORTH-
NORTHEAST OF BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 
23 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE 
IMAGERY (MSI) REVEALS TC 23P HAS STARTED TO RAPIDLY UNDERGO EXTRA-
TROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT) AS IT BECOMES FURTHER EMBEDDED IN THE MID-
LATITUDE WESTERLIES. THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER HAS STARTED TO 
ELONGATE WHILE THE DEEP CONVECTION HAS BECOME SHEARED TO THE 
SOUTHEAST AS THE SYSTEM HAS STARTED TO TAKE ON FRONTAL 
CHARACTERISTICS. THE LATEST AMSU CROSS SECTION ADDITIONALLY SHOWS A 
DEVELOPING WARM CORE ANOMALY IN THE LOWER LEVELS, INDICATIVE OF A 
DEVELOPING WARM FRONT, WHILE THE UPPER-LEVEL WARM CORE ANOMALY HAS 
DISSIPATED. AS TC ITA CONTINUES SOUTHEAST, THE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR 
FROM THE WESTERLIES WILL CONTINUE TO FURTHER ACCELERATE THE ETT 
PROCESS, TRANSITIONING THE SYSTEM INTO A GALE FORCE LOW WITHIN THE 
NEXT 12 HOURS. 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 140600Z
IS 12 FEET.//
