SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
120 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 14.3S 116.6E TO 19.0S 115.3E
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 25 TO 30 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY AT
102230Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 14.9S
116.5E. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 14.7S
116.3E IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 14.9S 116.5E, APPROXIMATELY 450 NM NORTH-
NORTHEAST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A BETTER CONSOLIDATED CONVECTIVE SIGNATURE
WRAPPING INTO AN ELONGATED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A
102006Z SSMIS MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS WELL DEFINED SPIRAL BANDING WITH
MOST OF THE CONVECTION ALONG THE NORTHERN QUADRANT. UPPER LEVEL
ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS LOCATED IN A MARGINALLY FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT WITH MODERATE (10 TO 20 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR OFFSET
BY GOOD DUAL CHANNEL OUTFLOW. THE SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY TRACKING
SOUTHWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A SUB-TROPICAL RIDGE TO THE EAST.
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS.
MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1000 MB. 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
112300Z.//

REMARKS:
110900Z POSITION NEAR 16.7S 116.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19S (NINETEEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 387 NM
NORTH-NORTHEAST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT
06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS AN AREA OF PERSISTENT DEEP CONVECTION ASSOCIATED
WITH A CONSOLIDATING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE 89 GHZ
110439Z AMSR2 AND 85 GHZ 110507Z TRMM MICROWAVE IMAGES REVEAL
FRAGMENTED, BUT QUICKLY IMPROVING CONVECTIVE BANDING FEATURES
SPIRALING INTO THE SYSTEM CENTER. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON
THE AFOREMENTIONED MSI ANIMATION AND MICROWAVE IMAGES WITH GOOD
CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 35 KNOTS IS BASED ON A PARTIAL
110148z ASCAT PASS AND THE OVERALL IMPROVED STRUCTURE OF THE SYSTEM.
UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS IN A FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW (10-20 KTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND
STRONG EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. TC 19S IS CURRENTLY TRACKING AROUND THE
WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A DEEP LAYER SUBTROPICAL RIDGE(STR) TO THE
EAST. TC 19S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TRACKING TO THE SOUTHWEST
THROUGH TAU 36 WITH GRADUAL INSTENSIFICATION AS IT APPROACHES THE
AUSTRALIAN COAST. ONCE THE SYSTEM MAKES LANDFALL, JUST EAST OF
LEARMONTH, THE SYSTEM WILL BEGIN ROUNDING THE STR AXIS AND WEAKEN
OVER LAND BY TAU 72. THOUGH GUIDANCE IS LIMITED AT THIS TIME, MODEL
TRACKERS SHOW LITTLE SPREAD, THUS THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK IS LAID
CLOSE TO THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS WITH GOOD CONFIDENCE. HOWEVER,
DUE TO THE LIMITED GUIDANCE AVAILABLE AT THE FIRST WARNING, THERE IS
LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 110600Z IS 10 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 111500Z, 112100Z,
120300Z AND 120900Z.//

REMARKS:
111500Z POSITION NEAR 17.8S 115.8E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19S (OLWYN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 233 NM
NORTHWEST OF PORT HEDLAND, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 12 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED

THE 89 GHZ 111154Z SSMIS MICROWAVE IMAGE REVEALS IMPROVED CONVECTIVE
BANDING FEATURES SPIRALING INTO THE SYSTEM CENTER WITH THE DEEPEST
CONVECTION LOCATED ON THE SOUTHERN AND EASTERN PERIPHERIES. THE
LOCATION IS BASED ON THE AFOREMENTIONED MICROWAVE IMAGE WITH GOOD
CONFIDENCE AND INTENSITY BASED ON A DVORAK ESTIMATE OF T3.0 FROM ALL
REPORTING AGENCIES. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS IN
A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW (10 KTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS)
AND STRONG EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. TC 19S IS CURRENTLY TRACKING AROUND
THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A DEEP LAYER SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR)
ANCHORED OVER THE WESTERN TERRITORY. TC OLWYN IS EXPECTED TO
CONTINUE TRACKING TO THE SOUTHWEST THROUGH TAU 24 WITH GRADUAL
INTENSIFICATION AS IT APPROACHES THE AUSTRALIAN COAST. ONCE THE
SYSTEM MAKES LANDFALL JUST BEYOND TAU 24 THE SYSTEM WILL BEGIN
ROUNDING THE AXIS OF THE RETREATING STR AND WEAKEN DUE TO LAND

REMARKS:
112100Z POSITION NEAR 18.7S 115.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (OLWYN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 255 NM NORTH-
NORTHEAST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT
11 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED (IR) SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS A BROAD DEEP CONVECTIVE BAND WRAPPING AROUND THE
SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF A CONSOLIDATED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
(LLCC). THE 111419Z METOP-A MICROWAVE IMAGE REVEALS THE SIGNIFICANT
STRUCTURE OF THE AFOREMENTIONED BANDING FEATURE AS WELL AS A BROAD
MICROWAVE EYE FEATURE. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE
AFOREMENTIONED IR ANIMATION, MICROWAVE IMAGE, AS WELL AS THE PGTW
FIX WITH GOOD CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 55
KTS BASED ON THE DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM PGTW, KNES, AND
APRF AS WELL AS THE 111420 ASCAT PASS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES TC 19S IS IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW (10-20
KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND WELL ESTABLISHED EQUATORWARD
AND POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNELS. TC 19S IS CURRENTLY TRACKING ALONG
THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE DEEP LAYERED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) TO
THE EAST. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN ON THE CURRENT SOUTHWEST
TRACK OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS AS IT MAKES LAND FALL NEAR LEARMONTH,
AUSTRALIA. FURTHER INTENSIFICATION IS EXPECTED UNTIL TAU 24. AFTER
THAT, THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO GRADUALLY WEAKEN AS IT RECURVES
ACROSS THE WESTERN EDGE OF THE CONTINENT, EVENTUALLY DISSIPATING
OVER THE WATER SOUTH OF AUSTRALIA. MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN TIGHT
AGREEMENT LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK WHICH
IS LAID CLOSE TO THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 111800Z IS 16 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 120300Z, 120900Z,

REMARKS:
120300Z POSITION NEAR 19.1S 114.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (OLWYN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 227 NM NORTH-
NORTHEAST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE CURRENT
POSITION IS BASED ON A 120015Z PGTW SATELLITE FIX AND A 112307Z
SSMIS IMAGE. THE INTENSITY OF 60 KNOTS IS CONSISTENT WITH SUBJECTIVE
DVORAK FIX DATA FROM PGTW AND KNES AND AN 112156Z AUTOMATED
SATELLITE CONSENSUS ESTIMATE OF 62 KNOTS FROM CIMSS. TC 19S
CONTINUES TO TRACK POLEWARD ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A DEEP-
LAYERED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE EAST. DEEP CONVECTION HAS WANED A
BIT DURING THE PAST FEW HOURS, PARTICULARLY OVER THE SOUTHWESTERN
PORTION OF THE CIRCULATION. HOWEVER, MICROWAVE SATELLITE IMAGERY,
INCLUDING THE 112307Z SSMIS PASS, INDICATE GRADUALLY IMPROVING LOW-
LEVEL STRUCTURE DESPITE THE TEMPORARY CONVECTIVE DISRUPTION. TC 19S
WILL CONTINUE TRACKING ALONG THE PERIPHERY OF THE CURRENT STEERING
RIDGE THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD, SKIRTING THE NORTHWEST
AUSTRALIAN COAST OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS. GIVEN STRONG AGREEMENT
AMONG THE FORECAST MODELS AND A STRAIGHTFORWARD STEERING SCENARIO,
THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST TRACK. FAVORABLE POLEWARD
OUTFLOW AND PASSAGE OVER WARM WATER SHOULD SUPPORT FURTHER
INTENSIFICATION OVER THE NEXT 12 HOURS BEFORE LAND INTERACTION
BEGINS. THE SYSTEM IS NOW EXPECTED TO COMPLETE EXTRATROPICAL
TRANSITION BEFORE DISSIPATING, AS INTERACTION WITH A MID-LATITUDE
TROUGH APPROACHING FROM THE SOUTHWEST BEGINS AFTER TAU 24. TC 19S IS
EXPECTED TO BECOME FULLY EXTRATROPICAL BY TAU 48. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 120000Z IS 18 FEET. NEXT

121500Z POSITION NEAR 21.9S 114.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19S (OLWYN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 60 NM NORTH
OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 16
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED (EIR)
SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS DEEP CONVECTION SURROUNDING A RAGGED 15NM
EYE. A 121129Z SSMIS MICROWAVE IMAGE DEPICTS INTENSE CONVECTIVE
BANDING SURROUNDING A MICROWAVE EYE FEATURE WITH MOST OF THE
SOUTHERN BANDING NOW OVER LAND. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON THE
EYE FEATURES IN THE EIR LOOP AND THE AFOREMENTIONED MICROWAVE IMAGE
AS WELL AS THE LEARMONTH RADAR LOOP WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. THE
INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON AN AVERAGE OF AGENCY DVORAK INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF T4.0. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT TC OLWYN IS
LOCATED JUST SOUTH OF THE RIDGE AXIS WITH LOW TO MODERATE (10-20
KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR OFFSET BY EXCELLENT POLEWARD OUTFLOW,
WHICH MAY SUPPORT A SLIGHT INTENSIFICATION JUST PRIOR TO LANDFALL.
AFTER LANDFALL, THE CYCLONE WILL BEGIN ITS WEAKENING TREND DUE TO
LAND INTERACTION. TC 19S WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK ALONG THE WESTERN
PERIPHERY OF THE DEEP MEAN LAYER SUB-TROPICAL RIDGE THROUGHOUT THE
FORECAST PERIOD. BY TAU 36, THE SYSTEM WILL ROUND THE RIDGE AXIS AND
BEGIN TO INTERACT WITH A SHORTWAVE TROUGH IN THE MID-LATITUDE
WESTERLIES, THUS BEGINNING EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT). TC OLWYN
WILL COMPLETE ETT BY THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. THERE IS HIGH
CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST AS DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS IN

REMARKS:
122100Z POSITION NEAR 23.0S 113.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (OLWYN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 17 NM WEST OF
LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED (EIR) SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS AN INTENSE AND WELL ORGANIZED SYSTEM WITH AN
APPARENT 25 NM RAGGED EYE FEATURE. THE 121826Z GPM MICROWAVE IMAGE
REVEALS A SHARPLY DEFINED MICROWAVE EYE JUST WEST OF LEARMONTH. THE
INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE EYE FEATURE IN THE EIR ANIMATION
AND SUPPORTED BY THE AFOREMENTIONED MICROWAVE IMAGE. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS BASED ON THE 121430 PGTW FIX, SATCON ESTIMATES, AS WELL
AS OBSERVATIONS REPORTED AT LEARMONTH. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES AN ENVIRONMENT CHARACTERIZED BY LOW TO MODERATE (10-20
KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW. TC 19S IS
CURRENT TRACKING ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE DEEP LAYERED
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE EAST. THE CYCLONE IS EXPECTED TO CREST THE
RIDGE AXIS WITHIN THE NEXT 12 HOURS, BEGIN TO WEAKEN DUE TO LAND
INTERACTION, AND THEN BEGIN TO SLIGHTLY RECURVE TO THE SOUTHEAST.
EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN NEAR TAU 12 WITH
COMPLETION OF THE TRANSITION BY TAU 36 AS A SHORTWAVE TROUGH
PROPAGATES INTO THE AREA AND INTERACTS WITH TC 15S. DYNAMIC MODEL
GUIDANCE REMAINS IN TIGHT AGREEMENT, LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE

REMARKS:
130300Z POSITION NEAR 24.4S 113.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (OLWYN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 83 NM SOUTH-
SOUTHWEST OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 13 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS.  THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON A 122210Z
SSMIS IMAGE AND RECENT SATELLITE FIXES FROM PGTW, KNES, AND APRF.
THE INTENSITY OF 85 KNOTS IS CONSISTENT WITH A CONSENSUS OF
SUBJECTIVE DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM THE SAME REPORTING
AGENCIES. THE SYSTEM HAS INTENSIFIED SLIGHTLY OVER THE PAST SIX
HOURS, DESPITE INTERACTING WITH LAND ALONG ITS EASTERN PERIPHERY,
DUE TO THE COMBINED INFLUENCES OF LOW TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR, FAVORABLE POLEWARD OUTFLOW, AND WARM WATER OFFSHORE.  TC 19S
IS TRACKING POLEWARD ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A DEEP-LAYERED
STEERING RIDGE TO THE EAST. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO ROUND THE
RIDGE AXIS AND UNDERGO EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION WITHIN 36 HOURS AS
IT INTERACTS WITH AN APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH. STEADY
WEAKENING IS ANTICIPATED AS THE SYSTEM MOVES INLAND, ALTHOUGH THE
CYCLONE MAY REMAIN QUITE INTENSE FOR THE NEXT 12 HOURS AS A PORTION
OF THE CIRCULATION REMAINS OVER SUFFICIENTLY WARM WATER OFFSHORE AND
FAVORABLE UPPER-LEVEL OUTFLOW CONTINUES. BECAUSE THE STEERING
SCENARIO IS RELATIVELY STRAIGHTFORWARD AND DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE
REMAINS IN GOOD AGREEMENT, THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT
TRACK FORECAST.  MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 130000Z IS 22
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 131500Z AND 140300Z.//

REMARKS:
131500Z POSITION NEAR 27.7S 114.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19S (OLWYN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 264 NM SOUTH
OF LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 17
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
SHOWS THE SYSTEM HAS MADE LANDFALL INTO SOUTHWEST AUSTRALIA. UPPER
LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE CYCLONE HAS CROSSED INTO THE BAROCLINIC
ZONE AND HAS BEGUN EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION. TC OLWYN IS EXPECTED TO
REMAIN INLAND AND TRANSFORM INTO A STORM-FORCE COLD CORE LOW BY TAU
12. JUSTIFICATION FOR CORRECTION: REMOVED WIND RADII AT TAU 12 SINCE
THEY'RE NOT REQUIRED FOR EXTRA-TROPICAL SYSTEMS, AND CORRECTED STORM
