MSGID/GENADMIN/JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI//
SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
110 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 12.2S 164.7W TO 15.8S 164.4W
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 140900Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 12.5S 164.1W. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04
KNOTS.
2. REMARKS:
   THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 13.2S 165.3W, IS
NOW LOCATED NEAR 12.5S 164.1W, APPROXIMATELY 394 NM EAST-NORTHEAST
OF PAGO PAGO, AMERICAN SAMOA. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS FORMATIVE BANDS HAVE SLIGHTLY DEEPENED AND WRAPPED
TIGHTER INTO A BETTER-DEFINED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC).
THE LLCC IS EASILY DISCERNIBLE FROM THE 140835Z AMSUB-B MICROWAVE
IMAGE. ADDITIONALLY, A 140609Z ASCAT PASS SHOWS A WELL-DEFINED LLCC
WITH 20 TO 25 KNOT WINDS AROUND THE CENTER. HOWEVER, 30 KNOT WIND
BARBS WITHIN THE CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH THE FORMATIVE BAND TO
THE NORTHEAST HAVE BEGUN TO WRAP CLOSER INTO THE LLCC. UPPER LEVEL
ANALYSIS INDICATES A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH MODERATE (15-20
KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR OFFSET BY STRONG DIVERGENT OUTFLOW WITH
CHANNELS ON BOTH THE EQUATOR AND POLEWARD SIDE. SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES ARE NEAR 30 CELSIUS AND HIGHLY CONDUCIVE FOR
DEVELOPMENT. GLOBAL MODELS SHOW SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT WITHIN 24-36
HOURS AS IT TRACKS TO THE SOUTH. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE
ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED
TO BE NEAR 1000 MB. IN VIEW OF THE IMPROVED BANDING AND FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT, 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
151030Z.

REMARKS:
142100Z POSITION NEAR 14.1S 165.3W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (SEVEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 320 NM EAST
OF PAGO PAGO, AMERICAN SAMOA HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 05 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS A DEEPENING WITHIN THE CURVED BANDING THAT IS
WRAPPING INTO A CONSOLIDATING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A
141815Z SSMIS 91GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING
WRAPPING INTO THE CENTER FROM THE EASTERN PERIPHERY. THE INITIAL
POSITION IS BASED ON THE BROAD LLCC IN THE ABOVE IMAGERY WITH FAIR
CONFIDENCE. THE INTENSITY HAS BEEN INCREASED TO 35 KNOTS BASED ON
THE IMPROVED OVERALL STRUCTURE AND IS SUPPORTED BY A T2.5 (35 KNOT)
DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATE FROM NFFN AND PGTW. THE SYSTEM IS TRACKING
SLOWLY POLEWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A DEEP LAYERED SUB-TROPICAL
RIDGE (STR) TO THE EAST. THIS STR WILL REMAIN THE DOMINANT STEERING
MECHANISM THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
ARE VERY CONDUCIVE FOR INTENSIFICATION WITH LOW (5-10 KNOT) VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR (VWS), RADIAL OUTFLOW, WARM SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES
(SSTS) AND HIGH OCEAN HEAT CONTENT. THESE FAVORABLE CONDITIONS WILL
SUPPORT A PERIOD OF RAPID INTENSIFICATION OVER THE NEXT 24 TO 36
HOURS AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS SLOWLY SOUTHWESTWARD. AFTERWARDS, THE
SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY, ALBEIT AT A SLOWER RATE DUE TO
SLOWLY DECREASING SSTS, REACHING A PEAK INTENSITY AT TAU 72. IN THE
EXTENDED FORECAST, VWS WILL INCREASE AS SSTS CONTINUE TO DROP OFF,
BEGINNING A WEAKENING TREND. LIMITED MODEL GUIDANCE SHOWS A
BIFURCATION IN THE EXTENDED FORECAST. NAVGEM AND HWRF SHOW THE
SYSTEM ROUNDING THE SUB-TROPICAL RIDGE AXIS AND ACCELERATING
SOUTHEASTWARD. GFS AND THE GFS ENSEMBLE MEAN DEPICT A STR BUILDING
IN SOUTH OF THE CYCLONE CREATING QUASI-STATIONARY MOVEMENT. DUE TO
LIMITED MODEL GUIDANCE IN POOR AGREEMENT, THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN
THE INITIAL JTWC FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
141800Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 150900Z AND 152100Z. THIS

REMARKS:
150900Z POSITION NEAR 14.5S 166.3W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 07P (VICTOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 262 NM EAST
OF PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 07 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS
INCREASED CONSOLIDATION OF DEEP CONVECTION WRAPPING INTO THE LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 150517Z CORIOLIS 37GHZ MICROWAVE
IMAGE SHOWS DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING NEARLY WRAPPING COMPLETELY
AROUND THE LLCC. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE BROAD LLCC IN
THE ABOVE IMAGERY WITH FAIR CONFIDENCE. THE INTENSITY HAS BEEN
INCREASED TO 40 KNOTS BASED ON THE IMPROVED OVERALL STRUCTURE AND IS
SUPPORTED BY A T2.5 (35 KNOT) DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATE FROM PGTW
AND KNES AND A T3.0 (45 KNOT) DVORAK ESTIMATE FROM PHFO. THE SYSTEM
IS CURRENTLY TRACKING UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A DEEP SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE TO THE SOUTHEAST. THIS STR WILL REMAIN THE DOMINANT STEERING
MECHANISM THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
ARE VERY FAVORABLE FOR INTENSIFICATION WITH LOW (5-10 KNOT) VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR (VWS), GOOD RADIAL OUTFLOW FROM AN UPPER-LEVEL
ANTICYCLONE CENTERED OVER THE TOP OF THE LLCC, WARM SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES (SSTS) NEAR 30 DEG CELSIUS AND (SSTS) AND VERY HIGH
OCEAN HEAT CONTENT (OHC) VALUES. THESE FAVORABLE CONDITIONS WILL
SUPPORT INTENSIFICATION OVER THE NEXT 72 HOURS AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS
SLOWLY POLEWARD, REACHING PEAK INTENSITY AT TAU 72. IN THE
EXTENDED FORECAST, TC 07P WILL BEGIN A SLOW WEAKENING TREND AS IT
ENCOUNTERS INCREASING VWS AND DECREASING SSTS AND OHC. DYNAMIC MODEL
GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH A GENERALLY SOUTHERLY TRACK
THROUGH TAU 36 AND THEN A PRONOUNCED SPREADING BEYOND TAU 36. NAVGEM
AND GFDN TAKE A WEAKER SYSTEM FURTHER WESTWARD BEFORE TURNING
SHARPLY SOUTHEASTWARD WITH A STR BUILDING IN SOUTH OF THE CYCLONE
CREATING QUASI-STATIONARY MOVEMENT BY TAU 120.  AVNO AND HWRF
INDICATE A MORE SOUTHERLY TRACK IN THE INITIAL TAUS BEFORE RAPIDLY

REMARKS:
152100Z POSITION NEAR 14.6S 166.4W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 07P (VICTOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 256 NM EAST OF
PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 02 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS.
ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THE CONSOLIDATION OF
BANDING, DEEP CONVECTION WITHIN ALL QUADRANTS OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRC-
ULATION CENTER (LLCC). DVORAK ESTIMATES AND RECENT SCATTEROMETRY DATA
INDICATE IMPROVING ORGANIZATION AND A PERIOD OF RAPID INTENSIFICATION
IS POSSIBLE WITHIN THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS. THE SURFACE AND UPPER
LEVEL ENVIRONMENT ARE FAVORABLE FOR MAINTAINING TC 07P THROUGH THE
NEXT 72 TO 96 HOURS. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (SSTS) AND OCEAN HEAT
CONTENT (OHC) VALUES WILL REMAIN POSITIVE NORTH OF 20 DEGREES SOUTH
AND WILL ENHANCEMENT THE LOW LEVEL STRUCTURE. AN UPPER LEVEL POINT
SOURCE ANTICYCLONE CONTINUES TO DEVELOP SLIGHTLY EASTWARD OF THE LLCC
AND IS CREATING AMPLE OUTFLOW FOR THE SYSTEM. THIS DIVERGENT PATTERN
WILL REMAIN IN PLACE THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST, BUT IS EXPECTED TO
WEAKEN SLIGHTLY IN THE 96 TO 120 TIMEFRAME. AS SSTS AND OHC DECREASE
AND UPPER LEVEL OUTFLOW WEAKENS, BEYOND TAU 96, THE OVERALL INTENSITY
WILL DECREASE, ALTHOUGH THE SYSTEM WILL REMAIN A STRONG TROPICAL
CYCLONE. TC 07P HAS BEEN UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A WEAK STEERING RIDGE
TO THE EAST WITH MODEL GUIDANCE INDICATING THIS RIDGE WILL STRENGTHEN
OVER THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS, CAUSING A SOUTHWARD TURN WITH MARGINAL
ACCELERATION THROUGH TAU 72. A TURN TO THE SOUTHWEST IN THE EXTENDED
FORECAST IS EXPECTED AS THE STEERING INFLUENCE BUILDS TO THE SOUTH OF
TC VICTOR. MODEL GUIDANCE SPREAD HAS DECREASED OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS
LEADING TO IMPROVED CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST TRACK. THE TRACK HAS
BEEN KEPT SLIGHTLY WEST OF THE CONSENSUS AS IT HAS BEEN SLOWLY
SHIFTING WESTWARD OVER THE PAST FEW MODEL CYCLES. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 151800Z IS 20 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 160900Z AND

REMARKS:
160900Z POSITION NEAR 15.3S 166.2W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (VICTOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 266 NM EAST
OF PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 05 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX
HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS FURTHER
CONSOLIDATION OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER, WITH THE
FORMATION OF A RAGGED EYE FEATURE BECOMING CLOUD-FILLED OVER THE
PAST SEVERAL HOURS. A 160556Z SSMIS 91 GHZ IMAGE DEPICTS A BROAD
MICROWAVE EYE WITH DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING ALONG THE WESTERN
PERIPHERY OF THE SYSTEM. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS SUPPORTED BY
DVORAK ESTIMATES OF T4.5 (77 KNOTS). THE UPPER-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT IS
EXTREMELY FAVORABLE TO SUPPORT RAPID INTENSIFICATION OVER THE NEXT
36 HOURS WITH NEAR RADIAL OUTFLOW AND LOW (10 TO 15 KNOTS) VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR. WARM SEA-SURFACE TEMPERATURES IN EXCESS OF 28 DEGREES
CELSIUS AND HIGH OHC VALUES WILL ALSO AID IN THE INTENSIFICATION OF
THE SYSTEM DURING THIS PERIOD. TC 07P IS BEING STEERED SOUTHWARD BY
A NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTHEAST. THIS RIDGE WILL CONTINUE
TO BUILD SOUTHWESTWARD AFTER TAU 48 CAUSING TC VICTOR TO RECURVE TO
THE WEST AROUND TAU 72 AND THEN WEST-NORTHWESTWARD FROM TAU 72

REMARKS:
162100Z POSITION NEAR 15.3S 166.7W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 07P (VICTOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 236 NM EAST OF
PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 03 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS.
ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED (EIR) SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS TC 07P HAS
BEEN UNDERGOING A PERIOD OF CYCLIC DEVELOPMENT AND WEAKENING WITH A
WELL DEFINED EYE FEATURE OBSERVED ONLY TO DEGENERATE AND BECOME
CLOUD-FILLED OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. THE CURRENT INTENSITY OF 75
KNOTS IS BASED ON THE T4.0/4.5 DVORAKS FROM PGTW AND KNES WITH AN
OLDER RSCAT PASS SHOWING A DIRECT PASS OVER THE CORE OF THE SYSTEM,
HELPING TO DEFINE THE WIND FIELD. A RECENT 1346Z SSMIS 37H MICROWAVE
IMAGE CLEARLY SHOWS THE EYE REMAINS WELL DEFINED IN THE MID TO LOW
LEVELS AS DEEP CONVECTION HAS OBSCURED THE EYE IN THE EIR IMAGERY.
SURFACE CONDITIONS REMAIN FAVORABLE WITH SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES
(SSTS) IN THE 27 TO 28 CELSIUS RANGE, AND FAVORABLE OCEAN HEAT
CONTENT AVAILABLE TO THE NORTH OF 20 DEGREES SOUTH. UPPER LEVEL
ANALYSIS INDICATES THE POINT-SOURCE ANTICYCLONE LOCATED TO THE EAST
OF TC 07P IS SUPPORTING A VERY FAVORABLE RADIAL OUTFLOW PATTERN,
WITH ONLY LOW TO MEDIUM LEVELS (10 TO 15 KNOTS) OF VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR IN THE VICINITY OF THE SYSTEM. MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS
CONSISTENT WITH THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE EXTENSION, LOCATED TO THE
SOUTHEAST OF TC 07P, TO BUILD SOUTHWARD STEERING TC VICTOR TO THE
SOUTH IN THE NEXT 12 HOURS. THE RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO BUILD ALONG THE
SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF TC 07P BEYOND TAU 48, TURNING THE SYSTEM TO
THE WEST THROUGH THE EXTENDED PORTIONS OF THE FORECAST. A SLIGHT
DECREASE IN UPPER LEVEL SUPPORT AND LESS FAVORABLE SSTS AROUND 20
DEGREES SOUTH WILL CAUSE A SLIGHT WEAKENING IN THE INTENSITY, BUT
OVERALL THE SYSTEM WILL REMAIN AN INTENSE TROPICAL CYCLONE
THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. GIVEN THE TIMING OF THE STEERING
RIDGE DEVELOPMENT AND THE CURRENT QUASI-STATIONARY POSITIONING OF TC
07P, THE CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST TRACK HAS BEEN LOWERED TO
MODERATE CONFIDENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 161800Z IS
24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 170900Z AND 172100Z.//

FROM 65 TO 77 KNOTS. THE UPPER-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT IS FAVORABLE FOR
FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS WITH GOOD POLEWARD
OUTFLOW AND LOW (10 TO 15 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. TC VICTOR WILL
CONTINUE TRACKING SOUTHWARD ALONG AN AREA OF WARM SST (27 TO 28
DEGREE CELSIUS) OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS WHICH SHOULD AID IN THE
SLIGHT INTENSIFICATION OF THE SYSTEM. AFTER TAU 36, THE SYSTEM WILL
BEGIN TRACKING OVER COOLER WATER LEADING TO GRADUAL WEAKENING. TC
07P IS BEING STEERED SOUTHWARD BY A NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE
NORTHEAST. THIS RIDGE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD SOUTHWESTWARD AFTER TAU
36 CAUSING TC VICTOR TO TRACK WESTWARD AROUND TAU 48. FROM TAU 72
THROUGH 120, A WEAKNESS BETWEEN THE RIDGE TO THE NORTHEAST AND
ANOTHER RIDGE TO THE SOUTHWEST WILL CAUSE THE SYSTEM TO SLOW IN
FORWARD SPEED. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT ON THE
OVERALL FORECAST TRACK, THEREFORE THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK IS
SUPPORTED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
170600Z IS 24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 172100Z AND 180900Z.//

REMARKS:
172100Z POSITION NEAR 17.7S 166.4W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 07P (VICTOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 310 NM SOUTHEAST
OF PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX
HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THE
TIGHTLY CURVED BANDING FEATURES HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING TO MAINTAIN THE
DEEP LAYERED BANDING CONVECTION NEAR THE CORE OF TC 07P. THE CURRENT
INTENSITY HAS BEEN DECREASED TO 65 KNOTS TO REFLECT THIS LOSS OF DEEP
CONVECTION WITHIN THE BANDING FEATURES. DVORAK ESTIMATES REMAIN
STEADY AT T4.0 OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS AND SUPPORT THIS RECENT DROP IN
INTENSITY. TC 07P IS TRACKING SOUTH ALONG THE WESTERN EXTENT OF A
DEVELOPING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) EXTENSION. MODEL GUIDANCE INDI-
CATES THE STR WILL BUILD ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF TC VICTOR IN
THE NEXT 24 HOURS, SHIFTING THE TRACK TO THE WEST THROUGH TAU 96.
AFTER WHICH, TC 07P WILL BEGIN TO TURN SOUTHWEST AROUND THE WESTERN
EXTENT OF THIS STR EXTENSION. INTENSITY GUIDANCE HAS SHIFTED OVER THE
PAST 24 HOURS, SUGGESTING A MORE STEADY STATE FOR THE NEXT 36 HOURS
AS THE SURFACE AND UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENTS BECOME LESS FAVORABLE
WITH SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (SSTS) DECREASING BELOW 27 DEGREES
CELSIUS POLEWARD OF 20 DEGREES SOUTH AND VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS)
SLOWLY INCREASES AFTER TAU 24. THE FORECASTS PEAK INTENSITY OF 80
KNOTS AT TAU 24 IS BASED ON THE MARGINAL ENVIRONMENT PERSISTING WITH
THE AN OBSERVED INCREASE IN POLEWARD OUTFLOW AS THE SYSTEM TAPS INTO
A MID-LATITUDE WESTERLY FLOW. EVENTUALLY THE DECREASING SSTS AND THE
STEADY INCREASE IN VWS WILL CREATE A WEAKENING TREND THROUGH THE
REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD
AGREEMENT ON THE OVERALL FORECAST TRACK, THEREFORE THE JTWC FORECAST
TRACK IS SUPPORTED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 171800Z IS 24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 180900Z AND 182100Z.//

REMARKS:
180900Z POSITION NEAR 19.4S 166.1W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (VICTOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 391 NM
SOUTHEAST OF PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 09 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS DEEP
CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A BROAD LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER. A 180614Z SSMIS 91 GHZ IMAGE DEPICTS A LARGE MICROWAVE EYE
FEATURE THAT SUPPORTS THE CURRENT POSITION WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE.
CLOUD-TOPS HAVE COOLED CONSIDERABLY OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS WITH
INCREASING DVORAK ESTIMATES OF T4.5, WHICH SUPPORT THE CURRENT
INTENSITY OF 75 KNOTS. THE UPPER-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT IS FAVORABLE FOR
FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS WITH GOOD POLEWARD
OUTFLOW AND LOW (10 TO 15 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). TC
VICTOR WILL CONTINUE TRACKING SOUTHWARD ALONG AN AREA OF WARM SST
(27C) OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS WHICH SHOULD AID IN THE SLIGHT
INTENSIFICATION OF THE SYSTEM. AFTER TAU 24, THE SYSTEM WILL BEGIN
TRACKING OVER COOLER WATER LEADING TO GRADUAL WEAKENING. TC 07P IS
BEING STEERED SOUTHWARD BY A NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE
NORTHEAST. THIS RIDGE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD SOUTHWESTWARD THROUGH
TAU 72 CAUSING TC VICTOR TO TURN TO THE SOUTHWEST, AND THEN WEST.
AFTER TAU 72, A DEEPENING UPPER LEVEL TROUGH APPROACHES FROM THE
WEST, RECURVING THE SYSTEM, AND THEN ACCELERATING IT SOUTHWARD. TC
07P WILL BEGIN WEAKENING RAPIDLY AFTER TAU 72 AS IT ENCOUNTERS MUCH
COLDER WATER AND HIGHER VWS VALUES IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE UPPER-
LEVEL TROUGH. THE SYSTEM WILL BEGIN EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION AS IT
ENTERS THE SUBTROPICAL WESTERLIES BY TAU 120 AND THEREAFTER.
NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE HAS CONSOLIDATED ON THE FORECAST TRACK OVER
THE LAST COUPLE RUNS, THEREFORE THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK IS SUPPORTED
WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 180600Z IS

REMARKS:
182100Z POSITION NEAR 20.2S 166.3W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 07P (VICTOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 365 NM WEST
OF RAROTONGA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL AND VISIBLE SATELLITE
IMAGERY REVEAL DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING AROUND A RAGGED EYE
WHICH HAS DECREASED SIGNIFICANTLY IN SIZE OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS.
AN 180728Z PARTIAL SSMIS 91 GHZ IMAGE DEPICTED A LARGE MICROWAVE EYE
FEATURE THAT SUPPORTS THE CURRENT POSITION WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE.
DVORAK ESTIMATES OF T5.0 FROM ALL AGENCIES SUPPORT THE INITIAL
INTENSITY OF 90 KNOTS AND REFLECT THE DECREASE IN THE EYE DIAMETER.
THE UPPER-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT CONTINUES TO BE FAVORABLE WITH ANIMATED
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWING A STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL TO THE
SOUTHEAST AND LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). WHILE THIS OUTFLOW
CHANNEL WILL MAINTAIN ITSELF OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS, TC 07P WILL
BEGIN MOVING INTO AN AREA OF DECREASING SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES
(SSTS) AND OCEAN HEAT CONTENT (OHC). TC 07P HAS REACHED MAXIMUM
INTENSITY AND WILL BEGIN TO SLOWLY WEAKEN AFTER TAU 12. THE NEAR
EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTHEAST IS THE DOMINANT STEERING FEATURE
AND IS BUILDING TOWARDS THE SOUTHWEST, STEERING THE SYSTEM ONTO A
WESTERLY TRACK THROUGH TAU 72. AFTER TAU 72, A DEEPENING UPPER LEVEL
TROUGH APPROACHING FROM THE WEST WILL WEAKEN THE STEERING RIDGE AND
CAUSE THE SYSTEM TO RECURVE AND ACCELERATE SOUTHWARD. AHEAD OF THE
APPROACHING TROUGH, TC 07P WILL EXPERIENCE INCREASED UPPER LEVEL
OUTFLOW, ALLOWING THE SYSTEM TO MAINTAIN TROPICAL STORM STRENGTH FOR
A SHORT TIME BEFORE RAPIDLY WEAKENING AFTER TAU 120 AS IT ENCOUNTERS
MUCH COLDER WATER AND HIGH VWS. THE SYSTEM WILL BEGIN EXTRA-TROPICAL
TRANSITION AS IT ENTERS THE SUBTROPICAL WESTERLIES BY TAU 120 AND
THEREAFTER. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE HAS CONSOLIDATED ON THE
FORECAST TRACK THROUGH TAU 96, AND THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE
JTWC FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 181800Z IS
32 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 190900Z AND 192100Z.//

REMARKS:
190900Z POSITION NEAR 20.9S 167.3W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (VICTOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 410 NM
WEST OF RAROTONGA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES A
FAIRLY SYMMETRIC CIRCULATION WITH DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING
INTO A RAGGED 35NM EYE; HOWEVER, ANIMATED ENHANCED IR IMAGERY SHOWS
A SLIGHT WEAKENING IN THE CENTRAL CONVECTION OVER THE PAST SIX
HOURS. A 190528Z SSMIS 37GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE REVEALS A SMALLER
(25NM) AND MORE DEFINED EYE FEATURE SUPPORTING THE CURRENT POSITION
WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM PGTW
AND KNES HAVE HELD STEADY AT T5.0 (90 KTS); HOWEVER, SATCON
INTENSITY ESTIMATES HAVE DROPPED TO 81 KTS. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES A STRONG EASTWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL WITH LOW VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR. TC VICTOR IS TRACKING WESTWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A LOW
TO MID-LEVEL SUB-TROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. THIS RIDGE WILL REMAIN
THE DOMINANT STEERING MECHANISM FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST
PERIOD. VERTICAL WIND SHEAR IS EXPECTED TO RAPIDLY INCREASE DUE TO
AN APPROACHING TROUGH WHICH WILL CONTINUE THE CURRENT WEAKENING
TREND. TC 07P WILL BEGIN A WEAK EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION BY TAU 120
AS IT INTERACTS WITH THE BAROCLINIC ZONE. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS
IN TIGHT AGREEMENT FOR THE FIRST 36 HOURS SUPPORTING A WESTWARD
TRACK AND FURTHER WEAKENING, BUT SPREADS BEYOND TAU 36 AS THE
AFOREMENTIONED TROUGH ABSORBS THE CYCLONE. THE INCREASING MODEL
SPREAD BEYOND TAU 36 LEADS TO LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK
FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 190600Z IS 32 FEET. NEXT

REMARKS:
192100Z POSITION NEAR 21.2S 168.2W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 07P (VICTOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 406 NM EAST
OF TONGA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 03 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES AN
ASYMMETRIC EAST-WEST ELONGATED CIRCULATION WITH CONVECTIVE BANDING
WRAPPING INTO A RAGGED, CLOUD-FILLED 45-NM EYE. ANIMATED ENHANCED IR
IMAGERY SHOWS THAT WHILE THE CENTRAL CONVECTION HAS BEEN MAINTAINED
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS, IT HAS BECOME WEAKER AND SHALLOWER IN
DEPTH. BLENDED MICROWAVE TOTAL PRECIPITABLE WATER (TPW) IMAGERY
INDICATES DRY AIR ENTRAINING INTO TC VICTOR FROM THE NORTH. THIS,
COMBINED WITH DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND KNES
OF T4.0, RESULT IN A REDUCTION OF INITIAL INTENSITY TO 65 KTS. TC
VICTOR REMAINS IN A LOW TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS)
ENVIRONMENT (10-20KTS) WITH A WELL-DEFINED EASTWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL.
DUE TO ITS RELATIVELY SHALLOW VERTICAL EXTENT, THE PRIMARY STEERING
MECHANISM FOR TC VICTOR IS THE LOW TO MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
CENTERED TO THE SOUTHEAST, RESULTING IN A WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK
ALONG THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF THIS RIDGE. THIS RIDGE WILL REMAIN
THE DOMINANT STEERING MECHANISM FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST
PERIOD. HOWEVER, BY TAU 72, THE RIDGE WILL WEAKEN AND RECEDE
EASTWARD, ALLOWING TC VICTOR TO TURN TO THE SOUTH. CONCURRENTLY, TC
VICTOR WILL BEGIN TO INTERACT WITH AN APPROACHING UPPER-LEVEL
TROUGH, MAINTAINING STRENGTH FOR A SHORT TIME DUE TO INCREASED
OUTFLOW, BEFORE AGAIN WEAKENING AS SHEAR INCREASES. TC VICTOR WILL
BEGIN A WEAK EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION BY TAU 96 AS IT INTERACTS
WITH THE BAROCLINIC ZONE ASSOCIATED WITH THE TROUGH. DYNAMIC MODEL
GUIDANCE IS IN TIGHT AGREEMENT FOR THE FIRST 48 HOURS SUPPORTING A
WESTWARD TRACK AND FURTHER WEAKENING, BUT SPREADS BEYOND TAU 48 AS
THE AFOREMENTIONED TROUGH INTERACTS WITH THE SYSTEM. THE INCREASING
MODEL SPREAD BEYOND TAU 48 LEADS TO MEDIUM CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC
TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 191800Z IS 24
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 200900Z AND 202100Z.

STEADY CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A RAGGED, CLOUD-FILLED 45-NM

INTENSITY HAS CHANGED LITTLE OVER THE LAST SIX HOURS, AND A 200515Z
SATCON INTENSITY ESTIMATE IS 68 KTS WHICH SUPPORTS THE CURRENT
INTENSITY. THE UPPER-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT IS FAVORABLE WITH LOW (10-15
KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND A STRONG EASTWARD OUTFLOW
CHANNEL WHICH IS SUSTAINING THE LIMITED CONVECTION. THE PRIMARY
STEERING MECHANISM FOR TC VICTOR IS THE LOW TO MID-LEVEL

WESTWARD TRACK ALONG THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF THIS RIDGE. BY TAU 48
A LONGWAVE TROUGH WILL MOVE IN FROM THE WEST WEAKENING THE RIDGE AND
INCREASING THE VWS. CONCURRENTLY, TC 07P WILL ALSO ROUND THE STR
AXIS, INDUCING A SOUTHWARD TRACK INTO COLDER SSTS FURTHER
EXACERBATING THE WEAKENING TREND. BY TAU 96 TC VICTOR WILL BEGIN
EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION AS IT INTERACTS WITH THE MID-LATITUDE
WESTERLIES, BECOMING A WEAK COLD CORE LOW BY TAU 120. DYNAMIC MODEL

REMARKS:
210900Z POSITION NEAR 21.5S 171.3W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (VICTOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 432 NM
SOUTH OF PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 07 KNOTS OVER THE PAST
SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A
DECOUPLING LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC), WITH WARMING CLOUD-
TOPS, INDICATING THAT THE SYSTEM IS BEGINNING TO ENTER ANOTHER
WEAKENING PHASE. A 210628Z SSMIS 91 GHZ IMAGE REVEALS THAT THE LLCC
REMAINS TIGHTLY WRAPPED, HOWEVER, IT IS DISPLACED SLIGHTLY TO THE
WEST OF CENTRAL CONVECTION. THE CURRENT INTENSITY OF 65 KNOTS IS
SUPPORTED BY RECENT DVORAK VALUES OF T4.0 FROM MULTIPLE AGENCIES.
UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS SHOWS GOOD POLEWARD OUTFLOW AND MODERATE (15 TO
20 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) OFFSET BY MARGINAL (26C) SEA-
SURFACE TEMPERATURES. TC VICTOR IS CURRENTLY TRACKING WESTWARD
ALONG THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE STEERING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
LOCATED TO THE SOUTH. BY TAU 24, AN APPROACHING TROUGH FROM THE WEST
WILL BEGIN TO RECURVE THE SYSTEM SOUTHWESTWARD AND THEN SOUTHWARD AT
TAU 48. INCREASING VWS AND COOLING SSTS WILL BEGIN TO WEAKEN THE
SYSTEM AS IT GAINS LATITUDE, ESPECIALLY AFTER TAU 48. TC VICTOR IS
FORECAST TO BE FULLY DISSIPATED BY THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD.
THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST IS POSITIONED CLOSE TO THE MULTI-MODEL
CONSENSUS AND IS SUPPORTED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
WAVE HEIGHT AT 210600Z IS 22 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 212100Z AND

REMARKS:
212100Z POSITION NEAR 21.7S 172.7W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 07P (VICTOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 159 NM EAST OF
TONGA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS.
ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS DEEP CONVECTION
THROUGHOUT THE SYSTEM HAS DRASTICALLY WEAKENED OVER THE PAST 12
HOURS. DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND KNES REFLECT THIS WEAKENING
TREND. INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) HAS FURTHER ENHANCED THE
SEPARATION OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) FROM THE UPPER
LEVEL. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (SSTS) HAVE BECOME UNFAVORABLE AND
WILL STEADILY DECREASE AS THE SYSTEM TURNS SOUTHWARD IN THE NEXT 24
HOURS. THE INCREASING VWS AND DECREASING SSTS, IN COMBINATION WITH
MID-LATITUDE INTERACTION WILL QUICKLY LEAD TO THE DISSIPATION OF THE
LLCC AS A TROPICAL SYSTEM BY TAU 48. THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST IS
POSITIONED CLOSE TO THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS AND IS SUPPORTED WITH
HIGH CONFIDENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 211800Z IS 18
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 220900Z AND 222100Z.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (VICTOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 473 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF SUVA, FIJI, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
DEPICTS A FULLY EXPOSED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH
MINIMAL DEEP CONVECTION BEING SHEARED TO THE EAST OF THE SYSTEM.
HOWEVER, A 220704Z 91 GHZ IMAGE STILL SHOWS TIGHT SHALLOW BANDING
WRAPPING INTO THE LLCC. TC VICTOR IS BEING STEERED WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHWEST PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
AND HAS ENTERED A REGION OF INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND
DECREASING SEA-SURFACE TEMPERATURES. THESE UNFAVORABLE CONDITIONS
HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO RAPID WEAKENING OF THE SYSTEM OVER THE LAST 12
HOURS. TC VICTOR IS FORECAST TO FULLY DISSIPATE BY TAU 36 AS IT
BECOMES FULLY ENVELOPED IN AN UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH APPROACHING FROM
THE WEST. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE INDICATES THE SYSTEM MAY REGAIN
INTENSITY WITHIN THE TROUGH AFTER TAU 36 AS IT ATTAINS SUBTROPICAL
CHARACTERISTICS. THE FORECAST FOR THE NEXT WARNING CYCLE MAY INCLUDE
SUBTROPICAL TRANSITION IF NUMERICAL MODEL FORECASTS AND ADDITIONAL
GUIDANCE CONVERGE ON THAT SOLUTION. THE CURRENT JTWC TRACK FORECAST
IS POSITIONED CLOSE TO THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS AND IS SUPPORTED BY
A TIGHT PACKING OF MODEL FORECAST TRACKS WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE.

KNOTS IS BASED ON DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T2.0. TC VICTOR HAS
TURNED MORE SOUTHWESTERLY OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS, BEING STEERED
ALONG THE NORTHWEST PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE. TC VICTOR HAS
MOVED INTO AN UNFAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT OF HIGH VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
(VWS) AND DECREASING SEA-SURFACE TEMPERATURES, WHICH HAVE CAUSED THE
SYSTEM TO DISSIPATE. THE TRACK FORECAST IS POSITIONED CLOSE TO THE
