SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
090 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 15.5S 151.7E TO 17.9S 150.1E
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 240000Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 15.8S 151.5E. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 07
KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION (INVEST 91P) PREVIOUSLY LOCATED
NEAR 15.2S 151.8E, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 15.8S 151.5E, APPROXIMATELY
100 NM EAST-NORTHEAST OF WILLIS ISLAND, AUSTRALIA. ANIMATED MULTI-
SPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A 232049Z MHS NOAA-18 89GHZ MICROWAVE
PASS SHOW CURVED BANDING WRAPPING INTO A RAPIDLY DEVELOPING LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. THE DISTURBANCE IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN A
FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH EXCELLENT DUAL CHANNEL OUTFLOW, LOW
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (10-15 KNOTS), AND WARM SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES
(29-30 C). GLOBAL MODELS INDICATE DEVELOPMENT OF A TROPICAL CYCLONE
IS LIKELY WITHIN 12 TO 24 HOURS AS THIS DISTURBANCE TRACKS
SOUTHWESTWARD. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25
TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1005
MB. BASED ON IMPROVED STRUCTURE AND FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL
CONDITIONS, 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
250130Z.

REMARKS:
242100Z POSITION NEAR 17.4S 152.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 13P (THIRTEEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 356 NM EAST
OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS A
SYSTEM THAT IS WELL ORGANIZED WITH A BROAD BUT DEFINED LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE CIRCULATION IS ALSO EVIDENT IN
SCATTEROMETRY AND THE WILLIS ISLAND RADAR LOOP.  DESPITE MULTIPLE
IMAGERY SOURCES THE CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION IS FAIR DUE
TO THE BROAD NATURE OF THE LLCC. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS HELD
HIGHER THAN DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T2.5 (35 KNOTS) BASED ON A
PREVIOUS 241156Z ASCAT PASS SHOWING 40KT WINDS TO THE SOUTH.
ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS ARE VERY FAVORABLE WITH HIGH SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES (30 C) AND LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. THE SYSTEM SHOWS
STRONG DUAL CHANNEL OUTFLOW AND A STRONG VORTICITY SIGNATURE. THE
SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY TRACKING SOUTHWARD ALONG A SUB TROPICAL RIDGE
LOCATED TO THE EAST TOWARD A TROUGH LOCATED TO THE SOUTH. DURING
THIS PERIOD, EXPECT A SLOW BUT STEADY INTENSIFICATION AS THE CYCLONE
CONTINUES TO CONSOLIDATE. AFTERWARDS, THE STORM WILL TURN TO THE
WEST AS IT BEGINS TO INTERACT WITH HIGH PRESSURE CURRENTLY BUILDING
OVER CENTRAL AUSTRALIA. VERY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS WILL
PERSIST ALLOWING A PERIOD OF RAPID INTENSIFICATION PRIOR TO LANDFALL
JUST BEFORE TAU 72. THE PEAK INTENSITY WILL OCCUR NEAR TAU 60. AS
THE SYSTEM TRACKS OVER INLAND, THE FRICTIONAL EFFECTS OF LAND
INTERACTION WILL RAPIDLY ERODE THE CYCLONE LEADING TO ITS COMPLETE
DISSIPATION BY THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. MODEL GUIDANCE FROM
THE PAST 48 HOURS SHOWED THE SYSTEM TRAVELING FURTHER SOUTH BEFORE
MAKING THE WESTWARD WITH EACH NEW MODEL RUN. THE SHIFT IS LIKELY DUE
TO THE SLOWED ARRIVAL OF THE HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM. DESPITE THE
CONTINUAL SHIFT IN THE TAU AT WHICH THE STORM WILL TURN WEST, THE
MODELS ARE IN GENERAL AGREEMENT OF THE TRACK LENDING FAIR CONFIDENCE
IN THE FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 241800Z IS
10 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 250900Z AND 252100Z. THIS CANCELS AND
SUPERSEDES REF A (WTPS22 PGTW 240130).//

250900Z POSITION NEAR 17.8S 152.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 13P (DEBBIE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 364 NM EAST
OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 02 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A
250558Z SSMIS 37 GHZ IMAGE DEPICT A RAPIDLY CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER WITH IMPROVED CONVECTIVE BANDING, AND A LARGE
MICROWAVE EYE. THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE
BASED ON THE ABOVE IMAGERY. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 55 KNOTS IS ON
THE HIGH END OF AGENCY DVORAKS OF T3.0 (45 TO 55 KNOTS) BASED ON THE
RAPIDLY IMPROVING STRUCTURE OF THE SYSTEM. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES A VERY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH RADIAL OUTFLOW AND LOW
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. TC DEBBIE IS CURRENTLY TRACKING SLOWLY
SOUTHWARD TOWARD A WEAKNESS BETWEEN A NER TO THE EAST AND A STR TO
THE SOUTHWEST. THE NER WILL TAKE OVER AS THE DOMINANT STEERING
FEATURE THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD AS IT BEGINS TO BUILD AND
MIGRATE WESTWARD, CAUSING TC DEBBIE TO CHANGE COURSE TO THE
SOUTHWEST. THIS SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO UNDERGO RAPID INTENSIFICATION
OVER THE NEXT 48 HOURS AS SSTS AND THE UPPER-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT
REMAIN EXTREMELY FAVORABLE. PEAK INTENSITY WILL OCCUR JUST PRIOR TO
LANDFALL, SHORTLY AFTER TAU 48. AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS INLAND, THE
FRICTIONAL EFFECTS OF LAND INTERACTION WILL RAPIDLY ERODE THE
CYCLONE LEADING TO ITS COMPLETE DISSIPATION BY THE END OF THE
FORECAST PERIOD. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE CONTINUE TO CONSOLIDATE ON
THE FORECAST TRACK LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE JTWC FORECAST

REMARKS:
252100Z POSITION NEAR 18.0S 151.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 13P (DEBBIE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 343 NM EAST
OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 02 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A
251711Z SSMIS 37 GHZ IMAGE DEPICT A CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH AN EYE VISIBLE ON THE MICROWAVE
IMAGE. THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE BASED ON
THE MICROWAVE IMAGERY. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 65 KNOTS IS HEDGED
SLIGHTLY ABOVE THE AGENCY DVORAKS OF T3.5 (55 KNOTS) BASED ON THE
PREVIOUS SATCON VALUE OF 64 KTS AND THE STRUCTURAL IMPROVEMENT.
UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT FOR CONTINUED
DEVELOPMENT WITH GOOD OUTFLOW, BOTH POLEWARD AND EQUATORWARD, AND
LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR VALUES. TC DEBBIE HAS BEEN TRACKING SLOWLY
SOUTHWARD ALONG A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE LOCATED TO THE EAST AND HAS
BEGUN TO SHIFT DIRECTION TO THE WEST DUE TO THE INFLUENCE OF THE
RIDGE LOCATED OVER CENTRAL AUSTRALIA. THE RIDGE OVER CENTRAL
AUSTRALIA WILL REMAIN AS THE DOMINANT STEERING FEATURE FOR THE
DURATION OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. THIS SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO UNDERGO
RAPID INTENSIFICATION OVER THE NEXT 24 TO 48 HOURS AS THE SEA
SURFACE TEMPERATURE AND THE UPPER-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT REMAIN
FAVORABLE. PEAK INTENSITY WILL OCCUR JUST PRIOR TO
LANDFALL, WHICH WILL OCCUR SHORTLY AFTER TAU 48. AS THE SYSTEM
TRACKS INLAND, THE FRICTIONAL EFFECTS OF RUGGED TERRAIN WILL RAPIDLY
ERODE THE CYCLONE LEADING TO COMPLETE DISSIPATION BY THE END OF THE
FORECAST PERIOD. MODEL GUIDANCE HAS CONTINUED TO CONSOLIDATE ON
THE FORECAST TRACK LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE JTWC FORECAST
TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 251800Z IS 16 FEET. NEXT

REMARKS:
260900Z POSITION NEAR 18.4S 151.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 13P (DEBBIE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 320 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT
03 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS AN ORGANIZED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER WITH
FLARING DEEP CONVECTION WRAPPING INTO THE SYSTEM. A 260545Z SSMIS 37
GHZ IMAGE REVEALS TIGHTLY CURVED CONVECTIVE BANDING, A LARGE
MICROWAVE EYE, AND SUPPORTS THE CURRENT JTWC BEST TRACK POSITION
WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 70 KNOTS IS SUPPORTED
BY MULTI-AGENCY DVORAKS OF T3.5 (55 TO 70 KNOTS) LATEST SATCON
ESTIMATES AROUND 65 KNOTS, AND THE IMPROVED CONVECTIVE ORGANIZATION.
UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS CONTINUES TO INDICATE A VERY FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT FOR DEVELOPMENT WITH RADIAL OUTFLOW AND LOW VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR. HOWEVER, RECENT TPW IMAGERY SHOWS SOME DRY CONTINENTAL
AIR BEING ENTRAINED INTO THE SYSTEM, WHICH HAS SLOWED THE
INTENSIFICATION OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. TC DEBBIE HAS BEEN TRACKING
SLOWLY SOUTHWESTWARD BETWEEN THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A NER AND A
STR TO THE SOUTHWEST. THIS SYSTEM WILL REMAIN UNDER THE SHARED
STEERING INFLUENCE OF BOTH FEATURES THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD,
WHICH WILL MAINTAIN ITS SOUTHWESTWARD TRAJECTORY. FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST UNTIL TC 13P MAKES LANDFALL
SHORTLY AFTER TAU 36, ALLOWING FOR A PERIOD OF STEADY
INTENSIFICATION. AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS INLAND, THE FRICTIONAL EFFECTS
OF RUGGED TERRAIN WILL RAPIDLY ERODE THE CYCLONE LEADING TO COMPLETE
DISSIPATION BY THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. DYNAMIC MODEL
GUIDANCE HAVE CONTINUED TO CONSOLIDATE ON THE FORECAST TRACK LENDING
HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 260600Z IS 18 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 262100Z AND 270900Z.//

REMARKS:
262100Z POSITION NEAR 18.7S 150.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 13P (DEBBIE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 277 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT
06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS A WELL ORGANIZED STORM WITH FLARING CONVECTION
WRAPPING INTO THE SYSTEM. A 261500Z GCOMW1 36GHZ IMAGE REVEALS THAT
THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER IS OFFSET SLIGHTLY TO THE NORTH OF
THE UPPER LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER AND LENDS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE
INITIAL POSITION. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 70 KNOTS IS SUPPORTED BY
MULTI-AGENCY DVORAKS OF T4.0 (65KTS) AND THE LATEST SATCON
ESTIMATE OF 68 KNOTS. THE STORM IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN AN AREA OF
LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS SHOWS STRONG POLEWARD
OUTFLOW WITH LESS ORGANIZED EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. THE SYSTEM IS ALSO
BEGINNING TO ENTRAIN DRY AIR ON THE EQUATORWARD SIDE FROM
CONTINENTAL AUSTRALIA, EVIDENT IN TOTAL PERCEPTIBLE WATER LOOPS,
WHICH HAS SLOWED THE RATE OF INTENSIFICATION. TC DEBBIE IS
CONTINUING TO TRACK SLOWLY TO THE SOUTHWEST UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE LOCATED TO THE EAST AND A RIDGE POSITIONED OVER
CENTRAL AUSTRALIA. THESE TWO RIDGES WILL CONTINUE TO STEER THE
SYSTEM TO THE SOUTHWEST AS IT MAKES LANDFALL SHORTLY AFTER TAU 24,
AND FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. ENVIRONMENTAL
CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN FAVORABLE HOWEVER, AS SYSTEM BEGINS TO
INTERACT WITH LAND THE RUGGED TERRAIN OF EASTERN AUSTRALIA WILL
RAPIDLY DISSIPATE THE CYCLONE BY THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD.
MODEL GUIDANCE CONTINUES TO BE IN GOOD AGREEMENT ON THE FORECAST
TRACK LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 261800Z IS 18 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
270900Z AND 272100Z.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 13P (DEBBIE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 295 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD

IMAGERY DEPICTS A RAPIDLY ORGANIZING SYSTEM WITH A RESURGENCE IN
DEEP CONVECTION AROUND THE CENTER, THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A 16 NM

HIGH CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 90 KNOTS IS SUPPORTED BY
AGENCY DVORAKS OF T5.0 AND OBJECTIVE INTENSITY ESTIMATES AROUND 90
KNOTS. ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS HAVE BECOME MORE FAVORABLE FOR
DEVELOPMENT WITH IMPROVED MID-LEVEL MOISTURE ENTRAINMENT, RADIAL
UPPER-LEVEL OUTFLOW, LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR, AND WARM (29C) SSTS.
TC DEBBIE HAS BEEN TRACKING SOUTHWESTWARD BETWEEN THE WESTERN
PERIPHERY OF A NER AND A STR TO THE SOUTHWEST. THIS SYSTEM WILL
REMAIN UNDER THE SHARED STEERING INFLUENCE OF BOTH FEATURES THROUGH
THE FORECAST PERIOD, MAINTAINING A PREDOMINANTLY SOUTHWESTWARD
TRAJECTORY. FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST UNTIL TC
DEBBIE MAKES LANDFALL, BETWEEN TAU 12 AND 24, ALLOWING FOR STEADY TO
