SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
140 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 12.7S 72.8E TO 12.7S 67.8E 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 111230Z
INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 12.8S 72.2E. THE
SYSTEM IS MOVING WESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 12.5S
72.5E IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 12.8S 72.2E, APPROXIMATELY 325 NM SOUTH
OF DIEGO GARCIA. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A
CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH IMPROVED
ORGANIZATION. A 111005Z SSMI 85GHZ IMAGE DEPICTS DEEP CONVECTIVE
BANDING WRAPPING FROM THE SOUTHEAST QUADRANT INTO THE WEST QUADRANT
OF THE LLCC WITH TIGHTLY-CURVED SHALLOW BANDING WRAPPING INTO A WELL-
DEFINED CENTER. A 110408Z ASCAT IMAGE DEPICTS A DEFINED CIRCULATION
WITH 25 TO 30 KNOT WINDS OVER THE SOUTHERN SEMI-CIRCLE. UPPER-LEVEL
ANALYSIS INDICATES A MARGINALLY-FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH MODERATE
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR OFFSET BY GOOD POLEWARD OUTFLOW. MAXIMUM
SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM
SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1002 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

REMARKS:
112100Z POSITION NEAR 12.9S 71.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 354 NM
SOUTH OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS
A RAPIDLY CONSOLIDATING SYSTEM WITH DEEP CONVECTION CONVERGING INTO
A COLD DENSE OVERCAST (CDO). A 111945Z PARTIAL AMSU-B 89 GHZ
MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWED A COMPACT SYSTEM WITH TIGHTLY-CURVED
CONVECTION PRIMARILY ALONG THE SOUTHERN AND WESTERN PERIPHERIES,
WHICH SUPPORTS THE CURRENT POSITION WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. THE
CURRENT INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 35 KNOTS BASED ON RECENT DVORAK
ESTIMATES OF T2.5 (35 KNOTS) FROM ALL AGENCIES. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES TC 19S IN A GENERALLY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH GOOD
POLEWARD AND INCREASING EQUATORWARD, OUTFLOW AND LOW (10 TO 15
KNOTS) EFFECTIVE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). THE VWS VECTOR IS FROM
THE EAST AS EVIDENCED BY THE DISPLACEMENT OF THE DEEP CONVECTION TO
THE WEST OF THE CENTER. TC FANTALA IS BEING STEERED WESTWARD ALONG
THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF AN EAST-WEST ORIENTED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
(STR) CENTERED TO THE SOUTHWEST. THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE
TRACKING GENERALLY WESTWARD UNDER THE SAME STEERING INFLUENCE
THROUGH TAU 48. AFTERWARDS, TC FANTALA WILL BEGIN MOVING A BIT MORE
WEST-NORTHWEST AS THE STR BEGINS TO REORIENT TO A SOUTHEAST-
NORTHWEST ORIENTATION. AS THE STR REORIENTS, THE SYSTEM WILL SLOW AS
IT ENTERS A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT BETWEEN THE STR TO THE
SOUTHWEST AND A NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE (NER) TO THE NORTHWEST BY TAU
96. TC FANTALA WILL INTENSIFY OVER THE NEXT 12 HOURS AT A SLIGHTLY
FASTER RATE THAN CLIMATOLOGY AS THE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT IMPROVES
AS A POINT SOURCE DEVELOPS OVER TOP OF THE LLCC. BETWEEN TAUS 24-36
THE SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY, THOUGH CLOSER TO THE
CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE, AS IT ENCOUNTERS AN AREA OF SOMEWHAT DRIER AIR
WHICH GETS ENTRAINED INTO THE SYSTEM. AFTER TAU 48, THE ATMOSPHERE
AGAIN MOISTENS, ALLOWING TC 19S TO INTENSIFY TO PEAK INTENSITY OF 95
KTS BY TAU 72. AS THE FORWARD MOTION BEGINS TO SLOW BY TAU 96
THROUGH TAU 120, TC FANTALA WILL INDUCE A LOCALIZED REDUCTION IN
OCEAN HEAT CONTENT (OHC) AND SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES RESULTING IN
GRADUAL WEAKENING AT THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. DYNAMIC MODEL
GUIDANCE IS IN RELATIVELY GOOD AGREEMENT THROUGH TAU 48, BUT
INCREASINGLY UNCERTAIN IN BOTH SPEED AND TRACK IN THE LONGER RANGE
FORECAST TAU'S LEADING TO LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 111800Z IS 14 FEET. NEXT

REMARKS:
120900Z POSITION NEAR 13.3S 69.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 407 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
DEPICTS A DEVELOPING 15NM CLOUD FILLED EYE FEATURE THAT SUPPORTS THE
CURRENT POSITION WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. AN INCREASE IN CENTRAL
CONVECTION AND IMPROVED BANDING IS ALSO EVIDENT. A 120434Z AMSU-B
MICROWAVE IMAGE REVEALS THAT THE BULK OF DEEP CONVECTION IS CONFINED
TO THE WESTERN PERIPHERY. THE INITIAL INTENSITY HAS BEEN INCREASED
TO 60 KNOTS BASED ON AN ASSESSMENT OF DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES
RANGING FROM 55 TO 65 KNOTS AND IS SUPPORTED BY THE IMPROVED CORE
STRUCTURE AND THE DEVELOPING EYE FEATURE. TC FANTALA IS TRACKING IN
A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW TO MODERATE (10-20 KNOT) VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND STRONG DIVERGENT OUTFLOW, EVIDENT IN WATER
VAPOR IMAGERY. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE ALSO VERY FAVORABLE NEAR
29 CELSIUS AND HIGH OCEAN HEAT CONTENT IS SUPPORTING THE CURRENT
RAPID INTENSIFICATION PHASE. TC 19S IS TRACKING WESTWARD UNDER THE
INFLUENCE OF A DEEP LAYERED SUB-TROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTHWEST. THE
CYCLONE WILL CONTINUE TRACKING UNDER THIS STEERING MECHANISM THROUGH
TAU 72 PRIOR TO BECOMING NEARLY QUASI-STATIONARY DUE TO A BUILDING
NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTH THAT WILL COMPETE AS THE DOMINANT
STEERING FORCE. VERY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST
FOR THE NEXT THREE DAYS ALLOWING THE CYCLONE TO REACH A PEAK
INTENSITY OF 120 KNOTS. BEYOND TAU 72, A REDUCED POLEWARD OUTFLOW
AND INCREASING VWS WILL CAUSE A SLIGHT WEAKENING TREND. DYNAMIC
MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN VERY TIGHT AGREEMENT THROUGH TAU 72; HOWEVER,
THERE IS A SPREAD ONCE THE STEERING ENVIRONMENT BECOMES MORE
COMPLEX. DUE TO THE UNCERTAINTY IN THE EXTENDED FORECAST, THERE IS
AN OVERALL LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 120600Z IS 18 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT

REMARKS:
122100Z POSITION NEAR 12.8S 68.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 406 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD
AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A SYSTEM WITH AN OVERALL WEAKENED
APPEARANCE AS COMPARED TO 12 HOURS AGO, THOUGH IT IS IMPROVING OVER
THE PAST COUPLE OF HOURS WITH DEEP CONVECTION BEGINNING TO REFORM
AND CONSOLIDATE INTO A CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST (CDO). A 121707Z AMSU-
B 85 GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE REVEALS THAT THE CONVECTION HAS
CONSOLIDATED AND COMPLETELY ENCIRCLED A SMALL MICROWAVE EYE FEATURE,
WHICH WAS ALSO EVIDENT IN 121356Z AMSR-2 91 GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGERY,
LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE INITIAL POSITION. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY HAS BEEN INCREASED TO 65 KNOTS BASED ON ASSESSMENT OF
DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T4.0 (65 KNOTS) FROM ALL FIXING
AGENCIES AND IS SUPPORTED BY THE IMPROVING STRUCTURE AND THE
DEVELOPING MICROWAVE EYE FEATURE. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE
SYSTEM IS IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW (10-15 KNOT) VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND STRONG DIVERGENT OUTFLOW, EVIDENT IN WATER
VAPOR IMAGERY. COUNTERING THESE FAVORABLE PARAMETERS, THE SYSTEM HAS
BEEN ENTRAINING SOMEWHAT DRIER AIR FROM THE SOUTHWEST OVER THE PAST
12 HOURS, RESULTING IN A PERIOD OF VERY SLOW INTENSIFICATION. TC 19S
IS TRACKING WESTWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A DEEP LAYER SUB-
TROPICAL RIDGE (STR) TO THE SOUTHWEST. FORWARD MOTION HAS SLOWED
OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS AS AN EXTENSION OF THE STR HAS DEVELOPED TO
THE WEST OF THE SYSTEM. THIS RIDGE WILL SLOWLY WEAKEN BY TAU 24,
ALLOWING TC FANTALA TO PICK UP SPEED ONCE AGAIN WHILE MAINTAINING
ITS WESTWARD TRACK. THE CYCLONE WILL CONTINUE TRACKING UNDER THIS
STEERING MECHANISM THROUGH TAU 72. AFTER TAU 72, THE SYSTEM WILL
BEGIN TRACKING MORE NORTHWESTWARD TOWARDS A WEAKNESS BETWEEN THE STR
TO THE SOUTHWEST AND A BUILDING NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE
NORTHEAST. BY TAU 120, THE SYSTEM WILL SLOW SIGNIFICANTLY AS IT
ENTERS A WEAK AND COMPETING STEERING ENVIRONMENT BETWEEN THE TWO
RIDGES. THE AFOREMENTIONED DRY AIR WILL CONTINUE TO ENTRAIN INTO THE
SYSTEM THROUGH TAU 24, LIMITING INTENSIFICATION TO THE
CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE. AFTER TAU 24, ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS BECOME
VERY FAVORABLE FOR INTENSIFICATION, WITH MOISTURE INCREASING AND
SHEAR DECREASING AS A POINT SOURCE DEVELOPS OVER TOP OF THE SYSTEM,
LEADING TO A PERIOD OF RAPID INTENSIFICATION BETWEEN TAU 24 AND 48.
BEYOND TAU 72, A REDUCED EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW AND INCREASING VWS WILL
CAUSE A SLOW WEAKENING TREND. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN VERY
TIGHT AGREEMENT THROUGH TAU 72; HOWEVER, THERE IS A SPREAD ONCE THE
STEERING ENVIRONMENT BECOMES MORE COMPLEX. DUE TO THE UNCERTAINTY IN
THE EXTENDED FORECAST, THERE IS AN OVERALL LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE
JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 121800Z IS
20 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 130900Z AND 132100Z.//

REMARKS:
130900Z POSITION NEAR 12.9S 66.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 488 NM
SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 12 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS
SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT WITH DEEPENING CORE CONVECTION SURROUNDING A
5-NM EYE FEATURE THAT SUPPORTS THE CURRENT POSITION WITH HIGH
CONFIDENCE. WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS EXPANDING RADIAL OUTFLOW AND
AN INCREASINGLY SYMMETRIC STRUCTURE. A 130252Z SSMIS 91GHZ MICROWAVE
IMAGE SHOWS DEEP CORE CONVECTION NOW FULLY SURROUNDING THE MICROWAVE
EYE FEATURE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY HAS BEEN INCREASED TO 80 KNOTS
BASED ON CONCURRING DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T4.5 (77 KNOTS)
FROM ALL REPORTING AGENCIES AND IS SUPPORTED BY THE NOTED
IMPROVEMENT IN ALL IMAGERY. TC FANTALA IS TRACKING WESTWARD UNDER
THE INFLUENCE OF A DEEP LAYERED SUB-TROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. THE
SYSTEM WILL REMAIN ON A WESTWARD TRAJECTORY THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST
PERIOD. IN THE EXTENDED FORECAST, A BUILDING NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE
TO THE NORTH WILL SLOW THE FORWARD SPEED OF THE CYCLONE. TC 19S IS
TRACKING IN A VERY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR (VWS), RADIAL OUTFLOW, VERY FAVORABLE SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES
AND HIGH OCEAN HEAT CONTENT. THESE CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST OVER THE
NEXT 48 HOURS SUPPORTING CONTINUED INTENSIFICATION, REACHING A PEAK
OF 125 KNOTS. BEYOND TAU 72, INCREASING VWS AND DECREASED OUTFLOW
WILL BEGIN A SLIGHT WEAKENING TREND. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE HAS
SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED IN THE OVERALL FORECAST SCENARIO LEADING TO
HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 130600Z IS 24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 132100Z AND 140900Z.//

REMARKS:
132100Z POSITION NEAR 12.7S 64.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 627 NM
NORTHEAST OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 09
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS A COMPACT SYSTEM WITH DEEP CORE CONVECTION
FORMING A CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST (CDO) WITH NO DISCERNABLE EYE
IN THE INFRARED IMAGERY. A 131647Z AMSU-B 85GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE
SHOWS DEEP CONVECTION FULLY SURROUNDING A SMALL MICROWAVE EYE
FEATURE PROVIDING HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE INITIAL POSITION. THE
INITIAL INTENSITY HAS BEEN INCREASED TO 85 KNOTS BASED ON DVORAK
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES BETWEEN T4.5 (77 KNOTS) AND T5.0
(90 KNOTS). TC FANTALA CONTINUES TO TRACK WESTWARD UNDER THE
INFLUENCE OF A DEEP-LAYER SUB-TROPICAL RIDGE (STR) TO THE SOUTH.
THE SYSTEM WILL REMAIN ON THIS WESTWARD TRAJECTORY THROUGH TAU 48.
BEYOND TAU 48 AND THROUGH TAU 96, THE SYSTEM WILL SLOW AND TURN
NORTHWESTWARD AS THE STR BUILDS AND REORIENTS TO A NORTHWEST TO
SOUTHEAST ORIENTATION. BY TAU 120, THE STR WILL WEAKEN SIGNIFICANTLY
AND THE PRIMARY STEERING MECHANISM SHIFTS TO THE A BUILDING NEAR
EQUATORIAL RIDGE (NER) TO THE NORTH, RESULTING IN A GRADUAL TURN
TOWARDS THE SOUTH. TC FANTALA CONTINUES TO TRACK IN AN OVERALL VERY
FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS), GOOD
RADIAL OUTFLOW, VERY FAVORABLE SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (SSTS) AND
HIGH OCEAN HEAT CONTENT (OHC). HOWEVER THE SYSTEM IS STILL ENTRAINING
RELATIVELY DRIER AIR FROM THE SOUTHWEST THROUGH NORTHEAST SECTORS,
RESULTING IN THE CURRENT SLOW INTENSIFICATION RATE. OVER THE NEXT
6-12 HOURS, THE MOISTURE ENVELOPE WILL INCREASE ONCE AGAIN,
SUPPORTING CONTINUED INTENSIFICATION, REACHING A PEAK OF 115 KNOTS
BY TAU 60. BEYOND TAU 60, INCREASING VWS, DECREASING OUTFLOW AND
LOWER OHC VALUES WILL RESULT IN A SLOW WEAKENING TREND. DYNAMIC
MODEL GUIDANCE HAS IMPROVED IN THE OVERALL FORECAST SCENARIO LEADING
TO HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 131800Z IS 26 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 140900Z AND

REMARKS:
140900Z POSITION NEAR 12.5S 62.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 575 NM
NORTHEAST OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 08
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS A RAPIDLY INTENSIFYING (INCREASE OF 20 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST 12 HOURS) SYSTEM WITH A 13-NM EYE. A 140240Z SSMIS 91GHZ
IMAGE SHOWS A COMPACT CORE WITH DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING
TIGHTLY INTO THE SOUTH QUADRANT. DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES HAVE
JUMPED TO T5.5 (102 KNOTS) WITH A RECENT SATCON ESTIMATE AT 110
KNOTS, THEREFORE, THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 105 KNOTS.
ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY CONTINUES TO REVEAL RADIAL OUTFLOW AND
ENHANCED POLEWARD OUTFLOW ASSOCIATED WITH THE STRONG WESTERLY FLOW
TO THE SOUTH. THE 34-KNOT AND 50-KNOT WIND RADII HAVE BEEN REDUCED
SIGNIFICANTLY BASED ON ANALYSIS OF A 140450Z ASCAT BULLS-EYE IMAGE.
TC 19S IS FORECAST TO TRACK WESTWARD TO WEST-NORTHWESTWARD ALONG THE
NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) THROUGH TAU 72.
AFTER TAU 72, THE STEERING INFLUENCE IS FORECAST TO TRANSITION TO
THE NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE (NER) AS THE STR WEAKENS SIGNIFICANTLY AS
A MIDLATITUDE TROUGH DEEPENS OVER THE MADAGASCAR REGION. THIS WILL
LEAD TO A DECREASE IN TRACK SPEEDS AND EVENTUAL SHARP TRACK CHANGE
TO A SOUTHEASTWARD TRACK MOTION AS THE SYSTEM BEGINS TO STEER WITHIN
THE FLOW BETWEEN THE AFOREMENTIONED TROUGH AND THE NER. DYNAMIC
GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH ALL TRACKERS SHOWING THIS
DRAMATIC SLOW DOWN AND TRACK CHANGE. THE MODEL TRACKERS, HOWEVER,
DIFFER ON THE TIMING AND DEGREE OF THIS TRACK CHANGE. CONSEQUENTLY,
THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST DUE TO THE UNCERTAINTY
AFTER TAU 72. TC 19S IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY THROUGH TAU 36 BUT
SHOULD WEAKEN GRADUALLY BY TAU 72 AS THE DEEP TROUGH ENVELOPS THE
SYSTEM. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 140600Z IS 30 FEET. NEXT
WARNINGS AT 142100Z AND 150900Z.//

REMARKS:
142100Z POSITION NEAR 12.3S 61.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 529 NM
NORTH-NORTHEAST OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT
09 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON
RECENT SATELLITE FIXES FROM PGTW AND KNES AND A 141718Z AMSU-B
IMAGE. THE INTENSITY OF 100 KNOTS IS CONSISTENT WITH RECENT
SUBJECTIVE DVORAK AND AUTOMATED SATELLITE INTENSITY ESTIMATES. TC
19S HAS BECOME A BIT LESS ORGANIZED AND WEAKENED SLIGHTLY OVER THE
PAST TWELVE HOURS, WITH THE PREVIOUSLY-EVIDENT EYE FEATURE BECOMING
CLOUD FILLED. ALTHOUGH POLEWARD OUTFLOW REMAINS STRONG, IT APPEARS
THAT RESTRICTED EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW MAY BE AT LEAST PARTIALLY
RESPONSIBLE FOR THE RECENT INTENSITY TREND. INTENSITY IS EXPECTED TO
REMAIN FAIRLY STEADY AS TC 19S TRACKS WESTWARD TO NORTHWESTWARD
ALONG THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE DURING
THE NEXT 72 HOURS DUE TO THE COMPETING INFLUENCES OF LESS-THAN-
OPTIMAL UPPER LEVEL OUTFLOW, LOW TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR,
AND PASSAGE OVER WARM WATER. TRACK SPEED IS EXPECTED TO SLOW
CONSIDERABLY AROUND TAU 72 AS THE STEERING PATTERN REORIENTS AHEAD
OF AN APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH AND THE PRIMARY STEERING
INFLUENCE SHIFTS TO A NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTHEAST OF THE
CYCLONE. TC 19S SHOULD ACCELERATE OUT OF THIS TRANSITIONING STEERING
ENVIRONMENT BY TAU 120. SOME INTENSIFICATION IS EXPECTED DURING THE
EXTENDED PERIOD DUE TO STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW AND A FAVORABLE SHEAR
PATTERN. NUMERICAL MODELS ARE IN GOOD GENERAL AGREEMENT WITH THE
CURRENT FORECAST, ALTHOUGH THE NAVGEM AND DEPENDENT MESOSCALE MODELS
DEPICT A TRACK SLIGHTLY FARTHER TO THE SOUTH OF THE MAIN CONSENSUS
MODEL GROUPING AND ENSEMBLE MODEL FORECASTS. THE CURRENT FORECAST
TRACK FAVORS THE PRIMARY MODEL GROUPING WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE THROUGH
TAU 72. THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE TRACK FORECAST AFTER TAU 72
GIVEN UNCERTAINTY IN THE EXACT LOCATION AND TIMING OF THE POLEWARD
TURN AND SUBSEQUENT ACCELERATION EXPECTED DURING THAT TIMEFRAME.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 141800Z IS 30 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS
AT 150900Z AND 152100Z.//

REMARKS:
150900Z POSITION NEAR 12.3S 59.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 488 NM
NORTH-NORTHEAST OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT
10 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY (MSI) DEPICTS TIGHTLY CURVED SPIRAL BANDING WRAPPING INTO A
10 NM DIAMETER CLOUD-FILLED EYE. A 150513Z METOPA 89 GHZ IMAGE ALSO
SHOWS A SMALL MICROWAVE EYE, WITH THE DEEPEST CONVECTION RUNNING
ALONG THE SOUTHERN PORTION OF THE EYEWALL. THE CURRENT POSITION IS
BASED ON THE MSI AND SATELLITE FIXES FROM PGTW AND KNES WITH HIGH
CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 100 KNOTS BASED ON
DVORAK 5.5 FINAL-T ESTIMATES (102 KNOTS) FROM ALL REPORTING
AGENCIES. CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR FURTHER INTENSIFICATION WITH
LOW (10 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS), WARM SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES, AND ROBUST POLEWARD OUTFLOW THAT IS BEING FURTHER
ENHANCED BY AN UPPER LEVEL LOW LOCATED 2,200 MILES TO THE SOUTHEAST.
TC 19S IS EXPECTED TO TRACK GENERALLY WEST TO WEST-NORTHWEST THROUGH
TAU 72 UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A DEEP LAYER SUB-TROPICAL
RIDGE (STR) TO THE SOUTH. AROUND TAU 72, A TROUGH WILL MOVE OVER
MADAGASCAR AND BEGIN TO ERODE THE STR, RESULTING IN A TEMPORARY SLOW
DOWN UNTIL A BUILDING NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTH TAKES OVER
THE STEERING FLOW AND TURNS THE SYSTEM BACK TO THE SOUTHEAST FOR THE
REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. GIVEN THE FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT,
FANTALA IS FORECAST TO INTENSIFY TO A PEAK NEAR 115 KNOTS BEFORE TAU
72, WHEN VWS WILL INCREASE DUE TO THE APPROACHING TROUGH. AFTER THE
TURN, GOOD OUTFLOW SHOULD RESUME, HOWEVER THE FORECAST INTENSITY IS
HELD STEADY GIVEN THE POTENTIAL FOR LOWER SSTS DUE TO UPWELLING, AS
THE SYSTEM TRACKS BACK ON ITSELF. DESPITE THE FAIRLY COMPLEX TRACK
SCENARIO, NUMERICAL MODELS ARE IN GENERALLY GOOD AGREEMENT, WITH THE
UKMET MODEL NOW THE PRIMARY OUTLIER AS IT TURNS BACK TO THE
SOUTHEAST BY TAU 48. GIVEN THE INCREASINGLY SMALL SPREAD IN THE
GUIDANCE, THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST TRACK.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 150600Z IS 30 FEET. NEXT
WARNINGS AT 152100Z AND 160900Z.

REMARKS:
152100Z POSITION NEAR 12.4S 57.6E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 464 NM
NORTH OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 07 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED (IR) SATELLITE IMAGERY
DEPICTS TIGHTLY CURVED BANDING WRAPPING INTO A 12 NM DIAMETER EYE. A
151746Z METOP-A 89 GHZ IMAGE ALSO SHOWS A SMALL MICROWAVE EYE, WITH
THE DEEPEST CONVECTION ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN PORTION OF THE
EYEWALL. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON A COMBINATION OF ENHANCED
IR IMAGERY, THE MICROWAVE DATA AND POSITION FIXES FROM PGTW AND KNES
WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 130 KNOTS
BASED ON DVORAK FINAL-T ESTIMATES OF 6.5 (127 KNOTS) FROM ALL
REPORTING AGENCIES. TC FANTALA CONTINUES TRACKING IN A FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT WHICH IS CONDUCIVE FOR FURTHER SLIGHT INTENSIFICATION
WITH LOW (10 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS), WARM SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES, AND VIGOROUS POLEWARD OUTFLOW. TC 19S IS EXPECTED TO
TRACK GENERALLY WESTWARD THROUGH TAU 12 UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE
OF A DEEP-LAYER SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) TO THE SOUTHWEST. THE TRACK
BECOMES MORE NORTHWESTWARD THROUGH TAU 72 AS THE STR BUILDS AND
EXTENDS TO THE WEST OF TC FANTALA. AROUND TAU 72, A TROUGH WILL MOVE
OVER MADAGASCAR AND ERODE THE STR, RESULTING IN TC FANTALA BECOMING
QUASI-STATIONARY FOR A SHORT PERIOD BEFORE A BUILDING NEAR
EQUATORIAL RIDGE (NER) BECOMES THE STEERING MECHANISM, RESULTING IN
A RAPID AND SHARP TURN TO THE SOUTHEAST FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE
FORECAST PERIOD. GIVEN THE FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT, FANTALA IS
FORECAST TO INTENSIFY SLIGHTLY OVER THE NEXT 12 HOURS, PEAKING AT
135 KNOTS, BEFORE DECREASING OUTFLOW WILL RESULT IN A SLOW WEAKENING
TREND THROUGH TAU 48. BY TAU 72 AS THE SYSTEM BECOMES QUASI-
STATIONARY AN UPPER-LEVEL POINT SOURCE REDEVELOPS OVER THE SYSTEM
AND ROBUST POLEWARD OUTFLOW IS REESTABLISHED. HOWEVER THIS SHOULD BE
OFFSET BY LOWER OCEAN HEAT CONTENT (OHC) DUE TO UPWELLING AS THE
SYSTEM TRACKS BACK ON ITSELF RESULTING IN A VERY SLOW WEAKENING
TREND. NUMERICAL MODELS ARE IN GENERALLY GOOD AGREEMENT THROUGH TAU
48 WITH INCREASING UNCERTAINLY AFTERWARDS REGARDING THE PRECISE
NATURE OF THE TURN SOUTHEASTWARD. GIVEN THE INCREASING SPREAD IN THE
GUIDANCE, THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 151800Z IS 36 FEET. NEXT

REMARKS:
160900Z POSITION NEAR 12.2S 55.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 472 NM
NORTH OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED (IR) SATELLITE IMAGERY
SHOWED A SLIGHT OVERALL WEAKENING; HOWEVER, IN THE PAST HOUR THE
CYCLONE BECAME MORE SYMMETRIC WITH A DISTINCT 10-NM EYE ONCE AGAIN.
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS A RESTRICTED EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW WITH AN
ENHANCED POLEWARD OUTFLOW INTO THE MID-LATITUDE WESTERLIES. A
160208Z SSMIS 91GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE REVEALS THAT THE BULK OF
SIGNIFICANT CONVECTION IS ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE STORM
DUE TO 10 TO 20 KNOT NORTHERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). THE
CURRENT POSITION IS LAID WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE BASED ON THE 10-NM EYE
IN THE IR IMAGERY. THE INTENSITY HAS BEEN HELD AT 130 KNOTS BASED ON
A DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATE OF T6.5 (127 KNOTS) FROM PGTW. TC
FANTALA IS TRACKING NORTHWESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHEASTERN PERIPHERY
OF A DEEP LAYERED SUB-TROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTHWEST. THIS RIDGE
WILL REMAIN THE DOMINANT STEERING MECHANISM OVER THE NEXT 48 HOURS
PRIOR TO A BUILDING NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTHEAST ASSUMING
STEERING. THIS WILL CAUSE A SHARP POLEWARD TURN ALONG A
SOUTHEASTWARD TRAJECTORY. TC 19S WILL SLOWLY WEAKEN THROUGH MOST OF
THE FORECAST PERIOD AS IT MOVES AWAY FROM THE STRONG POLEWARD
OUTFLOW ALLOWING THE MODERATE VWS TO HAVE A GREATER IMPACT. IN
ADDITION, ALONG TRACK SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO
DECREASE DUE TO COOLER WATER UPWELLED FROM THE STORM. IN THE
EXTENDED FORECAST, TC FANTALA WILL SLIGHTLY INTENSIFY AS IT REGAINS
A POLEWARD OUTFLOW DUE TO A PASSING SHORTWAVE TROUGH TO THE SOUTH.
DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR AGREEMENT ON THE OVERALL SCENARIO;
HOWEVER, THERE IS A LARGE SPREAD IN THE TIMING AND LOCATION OF THE
POLEWARD TURN. DUE TO THIS SPREAD AND THE COMPLEX STEERING SCENARIO,
THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 160600Z IS 38 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
162100Z AND 170900Z.//

REMARKS:
162100Z POSITION NEAR 11.3S 54.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 542 NM
NORTH OF ST DENIS, LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 10
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED (EIR)
SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS A MEDIUM-SIZED CYCLONE WITH A
SHARPLY-OUTLINED 12-NM EYE IN A VERY DEEP CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST. THE
EIR LOOP ALSO SHOWS THE SYSTEM HAS BECOME MORE SYMMETRIC. WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY SHOWS A RESTRICTED EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW WITH A ROBUST POLEWARD
OUTFLOW INTO THE MID-LATITUDE WESTERLIES. THE INITIAL POSITION IS
BASED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE ON THE EYE FEATURE IN THE EIR IMAGERY. THE
INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON AN OVERALL ASSESSMENT OF DVORAK
ESTIMATES FROM ALL REPORTING AGENCIES. TC FANTALA IS TRACKING ALONG
THE NORTHEASTERN PERIPHERY OF A DEEP-LAYERED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR)
TO THE SOUTHWEST. THE STR WILL BE THE DOMINANT STEERING MECHANISM
OVER THE NEXT 48 HOURS. AFTERWARDS, A BUILDING NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE
(NER) TO THE NORTHEAST WILL SLOWLY ASSUME STEERING. AFTER AN
APPROXIMATELY 12-HOUR OF QUASI-STATIONARY MOTION, TC 19S WILL TURN
SHARPLY SOUTHEASTWARD ALONG THE SOUTHWEST PERIPHERY OF THE NER. TC
FANTALA WILL SLOWLY WEAKEN THROUGH MOST OF THE FORECASTPERIOD AS IT
MOVES AWAY FROM THE STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW AND INTO INCREASING

REMARKS:
170900Z POSITION NEAR 10.4S 52.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 631 NM
NORTH-NORTHWEST OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED WEST-
NORTHWESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED
MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A DEEPENING CENTRAL CORE
STRUCTURE SURROUNDING A SHARP 11-NM EYE FEATURE WHICH SUPPORTS THE
CURRENT POSITION WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. ALTHOUGH THE CLOUD TOPS ARE
COOLING, THE CORE STRUCTURE HAS BECOME MORE ASYMMETRIC AND ELONGATED
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. IN LIEU OF THIS AND DVORAK INTENSITY
ESTIMATES DECREASING TO T6.5 (127 KNOTS), THE INITIAL INTENSITY HAS
BEEN LOWERED TO 130 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES A MARGINAL
ENVIRONMENT WITH MODERATE (15-20 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND
DECREASED POLEWARD OUTFLOW. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES REMAIN
FAVORABLE. TC 19S CONTINUES TO TRACK NORTHWESTWARD UNDER THE
STEERING INFLUENCE OF A DEEP-LAYERED SUB-TROPICAL RIDGE OVER
MADAGASCAR. THIS RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS,
ALLOWING A BUILDING NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTH TO ASSUME
STEERING. THIS WILL CAUSE A SHARP POLEWARD TURN TO A SOUTHEASTWARD
TRAJECTORY. THE SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO WEAKEN SLOWLY AS MODERATE
VWS AND THE RESTRICTED OUTFLOW HAMPER FURTHER INTENSIFICATION. IN
THE EXTENDED FORECAST, AN APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH WILL
CREATE ANOTHER STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL ALLOWING AN
ADDITIONAL INTENSIFICATION PHASE PRIOR TO VWS INCREASING. DYNAMIC
MODEL GUIDANCE CONTINUES TO STRUGGLE AGREEING ON THE EXACT TIMING
AND LOCATION OF THE POLEWARD TURN LEADING TO LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE
JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 170600Z IS
36 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 172100Z AND 180900Z.//

REMARKS:
172100Z POSITION NEAR 9.7S 50.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (TC) (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 693 NM
NORTH-NORTHWEST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 10
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED (EIR)
SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS A SYMMETRIC AND COMPACT CYCLONE WITH A
SHARPLY-OUTLINED 21-NM EYE IN A VERY DEEP CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST. THE
EIR LOOP ALSO SHOWS THE SYSTEM HAS REGAINED RADIAL OUTFLOW. THE
INITIAL POSITION IS BASED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE ON THE EYE FEATURE.
THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON AN OVERALL ASSESSMENT OF DVORAK
ESTIMATES FROM ALL REPORTING AGENCIES AND REFLECTS THE IMPROVED STATE
OF THE CYCLONE. TC FANTALA IS TRACKING ALONG THE NORTHEASTERN
PERIPHERY OF A DEEP-LAYERED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) TO THE SOUTHWEST.
THE STR WILL CONTINUE TO STEER THE TC OVER THE NEXT 12 HOURS.
AFTERWARDS, A BUILDING NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE (NER) TO THE NORTHEAST
WILL SLOWLY ASSUME STEERING. AFTER AN APPROXIMATELY 24-HOUR
QUASI-STATIONARY MOTION, TC 19S WILL TURN SHARPLY SOUTHEASTWARD ALONG
THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE NER. TC FANTALA WILL SLOWLY WEAKEN
AS VERTICAL WIND SHEAR INCREASES BUT WILL REMAIN AT VERY STRONG
INTENSITIES ABOVE 100 KNOTS. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR
AGREEMENT ON THE OVERALL SCENARIO; HOWEVER, THERE IS A LARGE SPREAD
IN THE TIMING AND LOCATION OF THE POLEWARD TURN. DUE TO THIS SPREAD
AND THE COMPLEX STEERING SCENARIO, THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE
JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 171800Z IS 40
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 180900Z AND 182100Z.//

REMARKS:
180900Z POSITION NEAR 9.3S 49.6E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 783 NM
NORTHWEST OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD
AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY (MSI) DEPICTS A DISTINCT 16-NM EYE SURROUNDED BY
AN INTENSE CONVECTIVE CORE STRUCTURE. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY
DEPICTS A SYMMETRIC SYSTEM WITH RADIAL OUTFLOW SUPPORTING THE
CURRENT INTENSITY. AN 180331Z SSMIS 91GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS AN
INTENSE CONVECTIVE RING SURROUNDING THE EYE FEATURE WITH A SECOND
CONVECTIVE RING BEGINNING TO DEVELOP. ADDITIONALLY, DEEP CONVECTIVE
BANDING IS WRAPPING IN FROM THE NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN PERIPHERIES.
THE CURRENT POSITION IS PLACED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE BASED ON THE EYE
FEATURE IN MSI IMAGERY. THE INTENSITY REMAINS AT 150 KNOTS BASED ON
AN ASSESSMENT OF SUBJECTIVE AND OBJECTIVE DVORAK INTENSITY
ESTIMATES. TC 19S IT TRACKING SLOWLY NORTHWESTWARD IN A VERY
CONDUCIVE ENVIRONMENT TO SUSTAIN THE CONVECTIVE STRUCTURE WITH LOW
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND VERY WARM SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES
(SSTS). THE CYCLONE HAS SLOWED SIGNIFICANTLY OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS
INDICATING THAT THE STEERING MECHANISM IS BEGINNING TO SHIFT FROM
THE MID-LATITUDE RIDGE POSITIONED TO THE SOUTH TO A BUILDING NEAR-
EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTH. THIS WILL DRIVE THE SYSTEM
SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGH TAU 72. THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD TC
FANTALA IS EXPECTED TO SLOWLY WEAKEN DUE TO INCREASING VWS AND
DECREASING SSTS AS IT GAINS LATITUDE. IN THE EXTENDED FORECAST, A
SECOND MID-LATITUDE RIDGE WILL BUILD IN TO THE SOUTH TURNING THE
CYCLONE WESTWARD TOWARDS MADAGASCAR. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN
FAIR AGREEMENT ON THE OVERALL SCENARIO WITH SOME DIFFERENCES IN THE
TIMING AND LOCATION OF THE MULTIPLE TRACK CHANGES. DUE TO THIS
DISAGREEMENT AND THE COMPLEX STEERING ENVIRONMENT, THERE IS LOW
CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 180600Z IS 40 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 182100Z AND 190900Z.//

REMARKS:
182100Z POSITION NEAR 9.3S 49.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 793 NM
NORTHWEST OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 01
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS AN EYE FEATURE, PREVIOUSLY WELL DEFINED, NOW
BECOMING CLOUD FILLED AS THE SYSTEM IS BEGINNING TO WEAKEN. THIS
FEATURE ALSO LENDS HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE INITIAL POSITION.
SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THE OVERALL CONVECTIVE STRUCTURE HAS
WEAKENED OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS AND THE STORM MOTION IS
NOW EXPERIENCING A QUASI-STATIONARY SCENARIO DUE TO A LACK OF A
DOMINANT STEERING MECHANISM. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT
140 KNOTS AND IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM ALL AGENCIES
REPORTING A CURRENT INTENSITY OF T7.0 (140 KNOTS). THE ENVIRONMENT
IS CURRENTLY MARGINAL WITH GOOD RADIAL OUTFLOW ALOFT AND
LOW (10 TO 15 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) BEING OFFSET BY OCEAN
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (SST) NEAR 29 CELSIUS, BUT RELATIVELY LOW
OCEAN HEAT CONTENT. COOLER WATER IS BEING UPWELLED FROM BELOW
AND IS CONTRIBUTING TO THE CURRENT WEAKENING TREND. CURRENTLY A NEAR
EQUATORIAL RIDGE IS BUILDING TO THE NORTH AND WILL BEGIN TO STEER
THE STORM TO THE SOUTHEAST IN THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS. THE INTENSITY
IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE A GRADUAL WEAKENING TREND AS VWS INCREASES.
THE FORECASTED TRACK IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE SOUTHEAST UNTIL AROUND
TAU 96. AT THAT TIME A DEEP-LAYER SUBTROPICAL RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO
FORM OVER MADAGASCAR SHIFTING THE TRACK TO THE WEST. DYNAMIC MODEL
GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT IN THE OVERALL FORECAST PHILOSOPHY BUT
DIFFER IN THE EXACT TIMING AND LOCATION OF THE TRACK CHANGES GIVING
LOW CONFIDENCE TO THE TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 181800Z IS 40 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 190900Z AND 192100Z.

REMARKS:
190900Z POSITION NEAR 9.4S 50.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 774 NM
NORTHWEST OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD
AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED
ON SATELLITE FIXES FROM MULTIPLE REPORTING AGENCIES AND A 190319Z
SSMIS IMAGE. THE INTENSITY OF 105 KNOTS IS CONSISTENT WITH RECENT
SUBJECTIVE DVORAK AND AUTOMATED SATELLITE CONSENSUS INTENSITY
ESTIMATES. TC 19S HAS STEADILY WEAKENED DURING THE PAST TWELVE HOURS
AS A NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTH AND EAST TRANSITIONED TO THE
DOMINANT STEERING MECHANISM AND SHIFTED THE CYCLONE ON AN EAST-
SOUTHEASTWARD TRAJECTORY THAT CROSSED COOLER WATER PREVIOUSLY
UPWELLED BY THE STORM. TC 19S IS EXPECTED TO TRACK POLEWARD OVER THE
NEXT 48 TO 72 HOURS UNDER THE ONGOING INFLUENCE OF THE NEAR-
EQUATORIAL STEERING RIDGE. SLOW WEAKENING IS ANTICIPATED AS THE
CYCLONE PASSES OVER COOLER WATER CLOSE TO ITS PREVIOUS TRACK DURING
THE NEXT 36 HOURS AND AS VERTICAL WIND SHEAR INCREASES SLIGHTLY
THEREAFTER. AROUND TAU 72, A DEEP-LAYER SUBTROPICAL RIDGE IS
EXPECTED TO FORM OVER MADAGASCAR AND SHIFT THE TRACK WESTWARD.
RESTRICTED UPPER-LEVEL OUTFLOW WILL LIKELY CONTRIBUTE TO A CONTINUED
DOWNWARD INTENSITY TREND DURING THE EXTENDED FORECAST PERIOD.
NUMERICAL MODELS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT REGARDING THE OVERALL
FORECAST SCENARIO OF A POLEWARD FOLLOWED BY WESTWARD TRACK. HOWEVER,
THERE IS SIGNIFICANT SPREAD IN THE LOCATION OF WESTWARD TURN AND
ORIENTATION OF THE SUBSEQUENT TRACK. THE CURRENT FORECAST LIES CLOSE
TO THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS, WHICH HAS REMAINED FAIRLY CONSISTENT
OVER THE PAST FEW CYCLES. HOWEVER, GIVEN LARGE MODEL SPREAD
PARTICULARLY IN THE EXTENDED PERIOD, THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE
TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 190600Z IS 31
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 192100Z AND 200900Z.//

REMARKS:
192100Z POSITION NEAR 10.0S 51.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 715 NM
NORTH-NORTHWEST OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED EAST-
SOUTHEASTWARD AT 06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A RAGGED 27 NM EYE FEATURE THAT
HAS REFORMED IN THE LAST SIX HOURS GIVING FAIR CONFIDENCE TO THE
INITIAL POSITION. RECENT MICROWAVE IMAGERY SHOWS A WEAKENING TREND
IN THE CONVECTIVE BANDING, HOWEVER, DEEP FLARING CONVECTION IS
NOW BEING OBSERVED IN THE LATEST FRAMES OF WATER VAPOR IMAGERY. THE
INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 85 KNOTS AND IS CONSISTENT WITH
RECENT SUBJECTIVE DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM MULTIPLE AGENCIES.
TC FANTALA HAS WEAKENED SIGNIFICANTLY OVER THE LAST 24 HOURS AS THE
QUASI-STATIONARY STORM MOTION HAS CAUSED UPWELLING OF COOLER WATERS
FROM BELOW. IN THE LAST TWELVE HOURS A NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE HAS
BUILT IN TO THE NORTHWEST AND IS STEERING TC FANTALA SOUTHEAST
DIRECTLY OVER THE TRACK PREVIOUSLY TRAVERSED. SLIGHTLY COOLER WATERS
ARE EXPECTED OVER THIS TRACK AND WILL CONTRIBUTE TO A SLIGHT
INTENSITY DECREASE. HOWEVER, UPPER-LEVEL OUTFLOW IS EXPECTED TO
IMPROVE OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS AS A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH PASSES TO
THE SOUTH. THE COMBINATION OF LOWER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND
ENHANCED OUTFLOW WILL SERVE TO MAINTAIN AN INTENSITY OF AROUND 80
KNOTS IN THE NEAR TERM. BEYOND TAU 36, STEERING IS EXPECTED TO
TRANSITION TO A DEEP-LAYER SUBTROPICAL RIDGE FORMING OVER MADAGASCAR
SHIFTING THE TRACK BACK TO THE NORTHWEST. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS
IN AGREEMENT TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY BUT DIFFER IN THE TIMING AND
LOCATION OF THE TURN TO THE NORTHWEST. DUE THE COMPLEX STEERING
ENVIRONMENT THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE TO THE FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 191800Z IS 28 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
200900Z AND 202100Z.

REMARKS:
200900Z POSITION NEAR 10.8S 53.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 634 NM
NORTH-NORTHWEST OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD
AT 09 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED
ON A 200307Z SSMIS PASS AND POSITION FIXES FROM MULTIPLE REPORTING
AGENCIES. THE INTENSITY OF 105 KNOTS IS CONSISTENT WITH RECENT
SUBJECTIVE DVORAK AND SATELLITE AUTOMATED INTENSITY CONSENSUS DATA.
TC 19S HAS REINTENSIFIED AND DEVELOPED A CLEAR EYE FEATURE OVER THE
PAST TWELVE HOURS WHILE TRACKING POLEWARD ALONG THE PERIPHERY OF A
NEAR-EQUATORIAL STEERING RIDGE TO THE NORTHEAST. ANIMATED WATER
VAPOR SATELLITE IMAGERY AND SATELLITE-DERIVED UPPER-LEVEL WIND DATA
INDICATE A STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL, WHICH IS LIKELY A
PRIMARY DRIVER OF THE RECENT INTENSIFICATION TREND. TC 19S IS
EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TRACKING POLEWARD UNDER THE CONTINUED STEERING
INFLUENCE OF THE NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS BEFORE
ENTERING A COMPETING STEERING ENVIRONMENT. A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE IS
THEN EXPECTED TO BUILD POLEWARD OF THE SYSTEM AND STEER IT WESTWARD
TO NORTHWESTWARD AFTER TAU 48. ADDITIONAL INTENSIFICATION IS
POSSIBLE IN THE NEAR-TERM AS POLEWARD OUTFLOW REMAINS FAVORABLE, BUT
GRADUAL WEAKENING SHOULD OCCUR IN THE MEDIUM TO EXTENDED RANGE AS
OUTFLOW BECOMES RESTRICTED. NUMERICAL MODELS ARE IN GOOD GENERAL
AGREEMENT REGARDING THE OVERALL TRACK FORECAST SCENARIO, ALTHOUGH
THERE IS SOME UNCERTAINTY IN THE TIMING AND DIRECTION OF THE
STEERING MECHANISM TRANSITION. THE CURRENT FORECAST LIES CLOSE TO
THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS WITH LOW CONFIDENCE GIVEN NOTED
UNCERTAINTY. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 200600Z IS 33 FEET.
NEXT WARNINGS AT 202100Z AND 210900Z.//

REMARKS:
202100Z POSITION NEAR 11.8S 54.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 548 NM
NORTH-NORTHWEST OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED
SOUTHEASTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED
SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A 20 NM RAGGED EYE FEATURE THAT HAS
CHANGED LITTLE OVER THE LAST SIX HOURS, AND LENDS HIGH CONFIDENCE TO
THE INITIAL POSITION.  RECENT MICROWAVE IMAGERY SHOWS THAT TC
FANTALA HAS MAINTAINED A STRONG AND SYMMETRICAL CONVECTIVE CORE
STRUCTURE. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 105 KNOTS AND IS
BASED ON SUBJECTIVE DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM ALL AGENCIES.  UPPER-LEVEL
ANALYSIS INDICATES THE PRESENCE OF A STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL
ASSOCIATED WITH A PASSING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH THAT HAS HELPED
MAINTAIN THE INTENSITY, HOWEVER THIS OUTFLOW CHANNEL WILL SOON
WEAKEN AS THE TROUGH PASSES. BY TAU 24 TC FANTALA WILL AGAIN BECOME
QUASI-STATIONARY FOR A PERIOD AS A DEEP-LAYER SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
BUILDS OVER MADAGASCAR CAUSING A TRANSITION IN THE STEERING
ENVIRONMENT.  THIS PERIOD OF SLOW MOVEMENT WILL OCCUR OVER WATER
WITH RELATIVELY LOW OCEAN HEAT CONTENT AND SERVE TO WEAKEN THE
STORM. IN THE EXTENDED FORECAST BEYOND TAU 96 THE NORTHWESTWARD
TRACK WILL AGAIN BRING TC FANTALA NORTH OF MADAGASCAR AND BACK INTO
AN AREA OF WARM SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES WHERE INTENSIFICATION IS
HIGHLY PROBABLE. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN POOR AGREEMENT WITH
THE PRECISE TIMING AND LOCATION OF THE TURN TO THE NORTHWEST AND THE
EXTENDED FORECAST TRACK POSITION. DUE TO THIS UNCERTAINTY THERE IS
LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 201800Z IS 33 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 210900Z AND 212100Z.

REMARKS:
212100Z POSITION NEAR 13.0S 56.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 434 NM
NORTH OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS A RELATIVELY COMPACT AREA OF CIRCULATION THAT HAS
MAINTAINED ITS STRUCTURE OVER THE LAST SIX HOURS. RECENT MICROWAVE
IMAGERY SHOWS A CONCENTRATION OF STRONG CONVECTIVE ACTIVITY NEAR THE
CENTER OF A SMALL EYE FEATURE GIVING HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE INITIAL
POSITION. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 80 KNOTS AND IS
CONSISTENT WITH SUBJECTIVE DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND
KNES. INTENSITY IS EXPECTED TO INCREASE SLIGHTLY OVER 24 HOURS DUE
TO ENHANCED OUTFLOW FROM A PASSING TROUGH TO THE SOUTH. TC FANTALA
IS CURRENTLY IN TRANSITION FROM BEING STEERED BY A NEAR-EQUATORIAL
RIDGE TO THE NORTHEAST TO A BUILDING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE
SOUTHWEST. DURING THIS TRANSITION TC FANTALA IS EXPECTED BECOME
QUASI-STATIONARY OVER WATER WITH LOW HEAT CONTENT, PREVENTING
FURTHER INTENSIFICATION. AS THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE BUILDS IN FROM THE
SOUTH TC FANTALA WILL SHIFT BACK TO A NORTHWESTWARD TRACK. DYNAMIC
MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT, AND THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE TO
THE FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 211800Z IS 24
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 220900Z AND 222100Z.

REMARKS:
220900Z POSITION NEAR 13.2S 56.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 414 NM
NORTH OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 01
KNOT OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS A COMPACT, CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER WITH A 10-NM EYE. A 220242Z SSMIS IMAGE ALSO INDICATES
IMPROVED CORE STRUCTURE WITH A MICROWAVE EYE FEATURE. THE CURRENT
INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 90 KNOTS BASED ON CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES OF 90 TO 102 KNOTS AND A SATCON ESTIMATE OF 89 KNOTS AT
0230Z. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS AND ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY
INDICATE IMPROVED OVERALL OUTFLOW, ESPECIALLY POLEWARD OUTFLOW. TC
19S IS FORECAST TO TRACK SLOWLY WITHIN A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT
BUT IS FORECAST TO TURN NORTHWESTWARD AFTER TAU 12 AS THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE BUILDS TO THE SOUTH. AVAILABLE DYNAMIC GUIDANCE IS
IN GOOD AGREEMENT AND SUPPORTS THE TRACK THROUGH TAU 120. TC 19S IS
FORECAST TO INTENSIFY TO A PEAK OF 110 KNOTS BY TAU 24 UNDER
FAVORABLE CONDITIONS. ALTHOUGH SST REMAIN FAVORABLE AFTER TAU 72,
UPPER-LEVEL WESTERLIES ARE FORECAST TO STRENGTHEN NORTH OF
MADAGASCAR, WHICH SHOULD LEAD TO GRADUAL WEAKENING AS THE SYSTEM
TRACKS WESTWARD. OVERALL, THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC
FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 220600Z IS 28 FEET.

REMARKS:
222100Z POSITION NEAR 12.8S 57.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 432 NM
NORTH OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED NORTHWARD AT 01 KNOT
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED IMAGERY DEPICTS
A VERY TIGHTLY-WOUND AND COMPACT STRUCTURE WITH FLARING CENTRAL
CONVECTION OBSCURING THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER, THUS GIVING
LOW CONFIDENCE TO THE INITIAL POSITION. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS
ASSESSED AT 80 KNOTS AND IS IN ALIGNMENT WITH RECENT SUBJECTIVE
DVORAK ESTIMATES. TC FANTALA HAS REMAINED QUASI-STATIONARY OVER THE
LAST 24 HOURS AS THE STEERING ENVIRONMENT IS SHIFTING. THE CURRENT
POSITION IS IN A REGION WITH RELATIVELY LOW OCEAN HEAT CONTENT AND
UPWELLING IS MOST LIKELY CONTRIBUTING TO THE RECENT WEAKENING TREND.
A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE IS BUILDING TO THE SOUTHWEST, AND IN THE NEXT 12
HOURS WILL BEGIN TO STEER TC FANTALA ON A NORTHWESTWARD TRACK.
CURRENTLY A GOOD POLEWARD OUTFLOW EXISTS WHICH WILL ALLOW FOR A
BRIEF PERIOD OF INTENSIFICATION. HOWEVER, POTENTIAL FOR
INTENSIFICATION IS LIMITED BEFORE TAU 72 AS THE FORECAST TRACK IS
OVER ITS PREVIOUSLY TRAVERSED TRACK AND WILL EXPERIENCE DECREASED
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD
AGREEMENT, AND THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST TRACK.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 221800Z IS 26 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS
AT 230900Z AND 232100Z.

230900Z POSITION NEAR 12.2S 55.8E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 473 NM
NORTH OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT
10 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON
RECENT MICROWAVE AND MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWING A
PARTIALLY EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. THE INTENSITY OF 60
KNOTS IS CONSISTENT WITH RECENT SUBJECTIVE DVORAK AND AUTOMATED
SATELLITE INTENSITY CONSENSUS DATA. TC 19S IS TRACKING WEST-
NORTHWESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL STEERING
RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. THIS GENERAL MOTION IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE CYCLONE HAS WEAKENED
SIGNIFICANTLY OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS DUE TO INCREASING WESTERLY
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND PASSAGE OVER COOL WATER UPWELLED BY THE
SYSTEM DURING THE PAST SEVERAL DAYS. FORECAST INTENSITIES HAVE BEEN
SHIFTED DOWNWARD BASED ON THE RECENT TREND AND ANTICIPATED
CONTINUATION OF UNFAVORABLE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND INTERACTION WITH
THE COOL SEA SURFACE. DISSIPATION IS NOW ANTICIPATED BY TAU 96.
NUMERICAL MODELS ARE IN GENERALLY GOOD AGREEMENT, LENDING HIGH
CONFIDENCE TO THE FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
230600Z IS 20 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 232100Z AND 240900Z.//

REMARKS:
232100Z POSITION NEAR 11.5S 54.5E. TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (FANTALA),
LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 524 NM NORTH-NORTHWEST OF PORT LOUIS,
MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE PAST
SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED IMAGERY DEPICTS A VERY COMPACT
AND TIGHT STRUCTURE WITH WEAK CONVECTION. END OF DAY MULTISPECTRAL
IMAGERY FROM AROUND 1500Z HINTED THAT THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC) WAS BECOMING EXPOSED. THIS WAS CONFIRMED BY A 231732Z
SSMIS 89 GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE DEPICTING A COMPLETELY EXPOSED LLCC,
PROVIDING HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION. THE INTENSITY IS
ASSESSED AT 50 KNOTS, CONSISTENT WITH BUT SLIGHTLY WEAKER THAN
SUBJECTIVE DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES, REFLECTING THE
OVERALL WEAK STRUCTURE AND EXPOSED LLCC. TC 19S IS TRACKING WEST-
NORTHWESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
(STR) TO THE SOUTH. THIS GENERAL MOTION IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. TC FANTALA CONTINUES TO WEAKEN
PRIMARILY DUE TO PASSAGE OVER COOL WATER UPWELLED BY THE SYSTEM
DURING ITS PREVIOUS TRACKS OVER THIS AREA, LIMITING AVAILABLE
ENERGY, AND ENTRAINMENT OF DRY AIR. WHILE SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES
SHOULD INCREASE BEYOND TAU 48, UPPER-LEVEL CONDITIONS WILL NOT BE
FAVORABLE, WITH HIGH VWS IMPACTING THE SYSTEM BY THIS POINT. THE
OVERALL INTENSITY FORECAST PHILOSOPHY REMAINS UNCHANGED, WITH
CONTINUING WEAKENING, LEADING TO DISSIPATION OF THE SYSTEM OVER
WATER BY TAU 96. NUMERICAL MODELS ARE IN GENERALLY GOOD AGREEMENT IN
BOTH TRACK AND INTENSITY, LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE FORECAST
TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 231800Z IS 26 FEET. NEXT
WARNINGS AT 240900Z AND 242100Z.//

REMARKS:
240900Z POSITION NEAR 10.2S 52.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (FANTALA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 630 NM NORTH-
NORTHWEST OF PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD
AT 09 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED,
WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE, ON VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWING A FULLY-
EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. THE INTENSITY OF 35 KNOTS IS
CONSISTENT WITH RECENT SUBJECTIVE DVORAK AND AUTOMATED SATELLITE
INTENSITY CONSENSUS ESTIMATES AND WIND SPEEDS DEPICTED IN A 240619Z
ASCAT PASS. TC 19S CONTINUES TO RAPIDLY WEAKEN AS IT PASSES, FOR A
SECOND TIME, OVER A POOL OF COOL OCEAN WATER UPWELLED BY THE CYCLONE
ALONG ITS PREVIOUS PATH. CONTINUED PASSAGE OVER COOL WATER AND
PERSISTENT VERTICAL WIND SHEAR WILL PREVENT TC 19S FROM
REINTENSIFYING, AND DISSIPATION BELOW THE WARNING THRESHOLD
INTENSITY OF 35 KNOTS IS IMMINENT. THEREFORE, 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 240600Z IS 15 FEET.//
