WTPS21 PGTW 20061021 22:00z
MSGID/GENADMIN/NAVPACMETOCCEN PEARL HARBOR HI/JTWC//
SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT 212151Z OCT 06//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
120 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 10.9S 167.9E TO 13.5S 166.2E
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 30 TO 35 KNOTS. METSAT IM-
AGERY AT 211800Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 11.0S 167.9E.  THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTHWARD AT 06 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: AN AREA OF CONVECTION NEAR 11.0S 167.9E, APPROXIMATELY
665 NM NORTHWEST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS PERSISTED OVER THE PAST 12
HOURS. RECENT ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS FLARING
CONVECTION WRAPPING INTO A WELL-DEFINED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER EVIDENT IN A 211930Z SSMI MICROWAVE IMAGE. UPPER LEVEL
ANALYSIS INDICATES LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND EXCELLENT OUTFLOW
ALOFT. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 30 TO 35
KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1000 MB.
BASED ON IMPROVED LOWER LEVEL ORGANIZATION, INCREASING CONVECTION,
AND FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL CONDITIONS, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT
24 HOURS IS UPGRADED TO GOOD.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED
BY 
222200Z.//

REMARKS:
220300Z POSITION NEAR 11.2S 167.6E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 01P (XAVIER), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 475
NM EAST-SOUTHEAST OF HONIARA, SOLOMON ISLANDS, HAS TRACKED
SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 02 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THIS
SYSTEM HAS RAPIDLY INTENSIFIED UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF LOW
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND EXCELLENT OUTFLOW ASSOCIATED WITH
UPPER LEVEL RIDGING. THIS RAPID INTENSIFICATION TREND IS
FORECAST TO CONTINUE THROUGH TAU 12, AFTER WHICH STORM INTEN-
SITY IS EXPECTED TO INCREASE MORE SLOWLY AS INCREASING SHEAR
AND COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERTURES BEGIN TO IMPACT DEVELOPMENT.
THE STORM IS EXPECTED TO TRACK GENERALLY SOUTHWESTWARD TOWARD
AN APPROACHING TROUGH CURRENTLY OVER EASTERN AUSTRALIA IN THE
NEAR TERM. THIS WARNING SUPERSEDES AND CANCELS REF A,

REMARKS:
221500Z POSITION NEAR 11.1S 167.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 01P (XAVIER), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 445 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF HONIARA, SOLOMON ISLANDS, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT
03 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS THE SYSTEM
HAS ONLY WEAKLY INTENSIFIED FROM THE PREVIOUS FORECAST. DEEP CONVEC-
TION HAS BECOME LESS ORGANIZED OVER THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
WITH MULTIPLE CELLS DEVELOPING ON THE SOUTHERN AND SOUTH-EASTERN
PERIPHERY. TC 01P REMAINS IN A WEAK VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ENVIRONMENT
WITH FAVORABLE UPPER LEVEL OUTFLOW ALLOWING THE SYSTEM TO CONTINUE
TO INTENSITY THROUGH THE FORECAST. TC 01P WILL BEGIN TO TRACK TOWARDS
A SERIES OF MID-LATITUDE TROUGHS APPROACHING OVER EASTERN AUSTRALIA.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 221200Z IS 21 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS
AT 230300Z AND 231500Z.//

REMARKS:
230300Z POSITION NEAR 11.6S 168.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 01P (XAVIER), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 490 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF HONIARA, SOLOMON ISLANDS, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEAST-
WARD AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. TC 01P HAS RAPIDLY IN-
TENSIFIED OVER THE LAST SIX HOURS AS A POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL
HAS SUSTAINED AND VERTICAL SHEAR HAS REMAINED LOW. TC 01P HAS ALSO
TAKEN A MORE SOUTHEASTERLY TRACK AS A MIGRATORY SHORTWAVE TROUGH
SOUTH OF NEW CALEDONIA HAS CREATED A BREAK IN THE STEERING RIDGE
TO THE EAST OF THE STORM. PAST TAU 24, THE SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL
EXIT THE PATTERN AND THE RIDGE TO THE EAST WILL BEGIN TO BUILD 
NORTH OF TC 01P, INDUCING A TURN TO THE WEST. TC 01P WILL BEGIN
TO WEAKEN AFTER TAU 24 AS IT BEGINS TO ENCOUNTER COOLER SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES AND INCREASED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. THE AVAILABLE DY-
NAMIC AIDS ARE IN POOR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. A LARGE GROUP-
ING FAVORS A WESTWARD TRACK IN THE NEAR TERM, DESPITE THE CURRENT 
ANALYSIS INDICATING A BREAK IN THE STEERING RIDGE INDUCING THE 
SOUTHEASTERLY STORM MOTION. THE FORECAST FAVORS GFDN AND NOGAPS,
WHICH DEPICT A MORE SOUTHERLY TRACK IN THE SHORT TERM. MAXIMUM SIG-
NIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 230000Z IS 28 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 231500Z 
AND 240300Z.//

REMARKS:
231500Z POSITION NEAR 12.9S 168.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 01P (XAVIER), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 600 NM
WEST-NORTHWEST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 05
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS, TC 01P HAS
INTENSIFIED AT A LESS THAN CLIMATOLOGICAL RATE DUE TO AN IMPINGEMENT
OF THE EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW FROM AN UPPER LEVEL ANTICYCLONE LOCATED
TO THE NORTHWEST OF THE SYSTEM. POLEWARD OUTFLOW REMAINS THE DOMI-
NANT OUTFLOW MECHANISM ALLOWING FOR THE SYSTEMS RECENT INTENSIFI-
CATION. MID-LEVEL RIDGING ON THE EASTERN PERIPHERY OF TC 01P CONTIN-
UES TO STEER THE SYSTEM IN A GENERALLY SOUTHWARD DIRECTION. BETWEEN
TAU 24 TO TAU 36 RIDGING BUILDING ON THE SOUTHEASTERN QUADRANT OF
TC 01P WILL INDUCE A SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS
ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT WITH THIS SCENARIO. BEYOND TAU 24 INCREASED
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND UNFAVORABLE SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES WILL
BEGIN TO WEAKEN THE SYSTEM THROUGH TAU 48. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 231200Z IS 31 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 240300Z AND 241500Z.//

REMARKS:
241500Z POSITION NEAR 14.6S 170.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 01P (XAVIER), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 465 NM
WEST-NORTHWEST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 08 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. TC 01P IS TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN
PERIPHERY OF A NORTHWEST-TO-SOUTHEAST-ORIENTED SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
ANCHORED EAST OF FIJI. THE SYSTEM HAS RECENTLY MAINTAINED INTENSITY
UNDER OFFSETTING INFLUENCES OF MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND GOOD
POLEWARD OUTFLOW ALOFT. TC 01P WILL RAPIDLY WEAKEN THROUGHOUT THE
FORECAST PERIOD DUE TO INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. ADDITIONALLY,
THE SYSTEM WILL ENCOUNTER COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES FROM TAU
48 ONWARD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 241200Z IS 33 FEET.
NEXT WARNINGS AT 250300Z AND 251500Z.//

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 01P (XAVIER), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 345 NM
WEST-NORTHWEST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 08 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. TC 01P CONTINUES TO TRACK BETWEEN THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO ITS EAST AND A MIDLATITUDE TROUGH OVER NEW
ZEALAND. TC 01P HAS WEAKENED AS IT HAS ENCOUNTERED A REGION OF MOD-
ERATE TO HIGH VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH THE MIDLATITUDE
WESTERLY FLOW. A 241848Z SSMI PASS INDICATES THAT THE DEEP CONVECT-
ION ASSOCIATED WITH TC 01P IS BEGINNING TO DECOUPLE FROM THE LOW
LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER. THE AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS CONTINUE TO HAVE A
POOR
HANDLE ON THE SYSTEM, REFLECTING A SHARP WESTWARD TURN INCONSISTENT
WITH
THE CURRENT SYNOPTIC ENVIRONMENT. THEREFORE, THIS FORECAST IS
WEIGHTED
TOWARD THE WBAR (THE BEST PERFORMING MODEL SO FAR) AND THE BETA
ADVECTION
MODELS WHICH INDICATE A SOUTHEASTWARD TO SOUTHWARD TRACK. TC 01P
WILL RAP-
IDLY WEAKEN OVER THE NEXT 48 HOURS AS IT CONTINUES TO TRAVERSE THE
HIGH
VERTICAL SHEAR ENVIRONMENT AND COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES.
MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 250000Z IS 29 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 01P (XAVIER), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 320 NM
WEST-NORTHWEST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. TC 01P IS NOW BEING STEERED IN THE LOW-TO-
MID-TROPOSPHERE ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE
ANCHORED EAST OF FIJI. THIS LOWER STEERING LAYER WILL SLOWLY MOVE
TC 01P SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGH A REGION OF STRONG VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR (VWS). TC 01P WILL RAPIDLY WEAKEN UNDER THE STRONG VWS AND
DISSIPATE AS A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE BY TAU 36. THE AVAILABLE
DYNAMIC AIDS ARE IN POOR AGREEMENT, WITH NOGAPS BEING THE WESTERN-
MOST OUTLIER AND WBAR BEING THE EASTERN-MOST. THIS FORECAST IS
BASED ON A BLEND OF PERSISTENCE AND A CONSENSUS OF ALL AVAILABLE
DYNAMIC AIDS, WITH GREATER EMPHASIS ON THE BAMS AND WBAR AIDS.

260300Z POSITION NEAR 14.6S 170.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 01P (XAVIER), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 415 NM
WEST-NORTHWEST OF NADI, FIJI, HAS TRACKED NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD AT
09 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE CURRENT BEST TRACK POSITION
HAS BEEN RELOCATED BASED ON RECENT ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL AND MIC-
ROWAVE SATELLITE IMAGERY, WHICH REVEAL THAT HIGH VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR HAS DECOUPLED THE CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH THIS SYSTEM FROM
THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THIS SATELLITE IMAGERY AND
A 251838Z QUIKSCAT PASS INDICATE THAT THE NOW FULLY EXPOSED LLCC IS
TRACKING NORTHWESTWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF STRONG LOWER LEVEL
SOUTHEASTERLY FLOW. THE FOREMENTIONED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR HAS
CONTRIBUTED TO THE RAPID WEAKENING OF THIS SYSTEM AND FULL DISSIP-
ATION IS EXPECTED BY TAU 12. THEREFORE, THIS IS THE FINAL WARNING
ON THIS SYSTEM BY THE JOINT TYPHOON WARNING CENTER (NAVPACMETOCCEN).
THE SYSTEM WILL BE CLOSELY MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF REGENERATION.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 260000Z IS 14 FEET.//
