SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
A 155 NM RADIUS OF 15.2S 171.6E 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 070130Z INDICATES THAT A
CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 15.3S 171.4E. THE SYSTEM IS
MOVING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 02 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION (INVEST 91P) PREVIOUSLY LOCATED
NEAR 15.2S 171.4E, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 15.3S 171.4E, APPROXIMATELY
376 NM WEST-NORTHWEST OF NADI, FIJI. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A 062143Z METOP-A 89GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE DEPICT
A CONSOLIDATING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH DEEP
CONVECTION PERSISTING OVER THE LLCC AND SOME BANDING BEGINNING TO
WRAP INTO THE CENTER. THE SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN AN AREA OF
FAIR UPPER LEVEL DIVERGENCE AND WARM SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE (28-29
CELSIUS), OFFSET BY MODERATE (15-20 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR.
HOWEVER, THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTH INTO A MORE FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT THAT WILL SUPPORT DEVELOPMENT. GLOBAL MODELS INDICATE
THE SYSTEM WILL REMAIN QUASISTATIONARY FOR THE NEXT 12 HOURS WITH
MODEL GUIDANCE BEYOND TAU 12 SPLIT BETWEEN SOUTHEASTWARD TO
SOUTHWESTWARD MOVEMENT. GLOBAL MODELS DO AGREE 91P WILL DEVELOP
BETWEEN TAU 24 TO TAU 42. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE
ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED
TO BE NEAR 1000 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A
SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS HIGH.

REMARKS:
082100Z POSITION NEAR 16.7S 171.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (KENI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 155 NM EAST-
NORTHEAST OF PORT VILA, VANUATU, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS A CONSOLIDATING SYSTEM WITH IMPROVED DEEP CONVECTIVE
BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THIS
IMPROVED CONVECTIVE STRUCTURE IS EVIDENT IN A 081902Z SSMIS 91GHZ
IMAGE, WHICH SHOWS DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A DEFINED
LLCC. OVERALL, THERE IS GOOD CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION AND
RECENT TRACK MOTION. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS IMPROVED
NEAR-RADIAL OUTFLOW WITH A DISTINCT POLEWARD CHANNEL ENHANCED BY THE
MIDLATITUDE WESTERLIES TO THE SOUTH. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS
ASSESSED AT 35 KNOTS BASED ON DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T2.5 (35
KNOTS) FROM KNES AND PGTW. AFTER A BRIEF PERIOD OF QUASISTATIONARY
MOTION, TC 19P IS CURRENTLY TRACKING SOUTHEASTWARD ALONG THE
SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE LOW- TO MID-LEVEL STEERING RIDGE
POSITIONED TO THE NORTHEAST. TC 19P WILL ACCELERATE EAST-
SOUTHEASTWARD TO SOUTHEASTWARD AS IT PASSES JUST SOUTH OF FIJI
BETWEEN TAU 24 AND TAU 36 WITH LAND INTERACTION SLIGHTLY HINDERING
DEVELOPMENT. DUE TO THE FAVORABLE OUTFLOW AND WARM SST, TC 19P IS
FORECAST TO INTENSIFY TO A PEAK OF 65 KNOTS BY TAU 36, HOWEVER, NEAR
TAU 36 THE SYSTEM WILL BEGIN TO INTERACT WITH A DEEP MIDLATITUDE
TROUGH AND WILL COMMENCE EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT). BY TAU 48,
THE SYSTEM WILL BECOME EMBEDDED WITHIN THE LEADING EDGE OF THE
TROUGH AND WILL WEAKEN MORE RAPIDLY AS IT ENCOUNTERS STRONG VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR AND COOLER SST. TC 19P IS FORECAST TO COMPLETE ETT BY TAU
72 AS IT GAINS FRONTAL CHARACTERISTICS AND TRACKS NEAR THE JET.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 081800Z IS 9 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS
AT 090300Z, 090900Z, 091500Z AND 092100Z. THIS CANCELS AND

REMARKS:
090900Z POSITION NEAR 17.5S 173.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19P (KENI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 248 NM EAST OF
PORT VILA, VANUATU, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 13 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MSI SHOWS THE SYSTEM HAS BECOME MORE
CONSOLIDATED AS CONVECTIVE BANDS COALESCED AND WRAPPED INTO AN
OBSCURED LLC. THE INITIAL POSITION IS EXTRAPOLATED DOWNSTREAM FROM A
LOW REFLECTIVITY CIRCULATION FEATURE IN THE 090315Z SSMI 37 GHZ PASS
AND JUST SOUTHEASTWARD OF AN OVERSHOOTING DIMPLE FEATURE IN THE
090600Z VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON
THE DVORAK ESTIMATE OF T3.0 (45 KNOTS) FROM PGTW AND REFLECTS THE
IMPROVED STATE OF THE CYCLONE. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES TC 19P
IS IN AN AREA OF LIGHT TO MODERATE (10-15 KNOT) SOUTHWESTERLY VWS
THAT IS MOSTLY OFFSET BY EXCELLENT DUAL OUTFLOW. ALONG-TRACK SSTS AT
30C ARE ALSO CONDUCIVE. TC KENI IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TRACKING
SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN
PERIPHERY OF THE NER TO THE NORTHEAST. THE AFOREMENTIONED OVERALL
FAVORABLE CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL IN THE NEAR TERM AND FUEL GRADUAL
INTENSIFICATION UP TO 70 KNOTS BY TAU 24. AFTERWARD, INCREASING VWS
AND COOLING SSTS WILL STEADILY ERODE THE CYCLONE. BY TAU 36, TC 19P
WILL ACCELERATE INTO THE BAROCLINIC ZONE AND COMMENCE EXTRA-TROPICAL
TRANSITION. BY TAU 72, THE SYSTEM WILL TRANSFORM INTO A STRONG
GALE-FORCE COLD CORE LOW WITH AN EXPANDING WIND FIELD. THE AVAILABLE
NUMERIC GUIDANCE IS IN TIGHT AGREEMENT, LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE TO
THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 090600Z
IS 13 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 091500Z, 092100Z, 100300Z AND 100900Z.//

REMARKS:
092100Z POSITION NEAR 18.3S 175.6E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19P (KENI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 206 NM WEST OF
SUVA, FIJI, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 10 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED EIR SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS A LARGE MASS OF 
DEEP CONVECTION COVERING UP THE LLCC. THE EDGE OF THIS CENTRAL DENSE 
OVERCAST (CDO) REGION HAS SHARPENED, AND CLOUD TOPS HAVE COOLED OVER 
THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH MODERATE 
CONFIDENCE BASED ON TIGHTLY CURVED CONVECTIVE BANDING OBSERVED IN 
SHORTWAVE INFRARED (SWIR) IMAGERY. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON 
DVORAK ESTIMATES OF T4.0 (65 KNOTS) FROM PGTW AND PHFO, SUPPORTED BY 
A 091800Z ADVANCED DVORAK TECHNIQUE ESTIMATE OF 63 KNOTS. UPPER 
LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES TC 19P IS IN AN AREA OF LIGHT TO MODERATE 
(15 TO 20 KNOTS) SOUTHWESTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) THAT IS 
MOSTLY OFFSET BY EXCELLENT DUAL CHANNEL OUTFLOW TO THE SOUTHEAST AND 
NORTHEAST. ALONG-TRACK SSTS AT 28C TO 29C ARE ALSO CONDUCIVE. TC 
KENI IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TRACKING SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGHOUT THE 
FORECAST ALONG THE PERIPHERY OF THE NER TO THE NORTHEAST. THE 
AFOREMENTIONED OVERALL FAVORABLE CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL IN THE NEAR 
TERM AND FUEL STEADY INTENSIFICATION UP TO 85 KNOTS BY TAU 24. 
AFTERWARD, AN UPPER LEVEL LONGWAVE TROUGH IS EXPECTED TO DEEPEN 
UPSTREAM OF 19P, CAUSING RAPIDLY INCREASING VWS. INCREASING VWS AND 
COOLING SSTS WILL STEADILY ERODE THE CYCLONE AS IT ACCELERATES INTO 
THE BAROCLINIC ZONE AND COMMENCES EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION. BY TAU 
48, THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO BE TRANSFORMED INTO A STRONG GALE-
FORCE COLD CORE LOW WITH AN EXPANDING WIND FIELD. THE AVAILABLE 
NUMERIC GUIDANCE REMAINS IN TIGHT AGREEMENT, LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE 
TO THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 
091800Z IS 20 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 100300Z, 100900Z, 101500Z AND

REMARKS:
100300Z POSITION NEAR 19.4S 178.0E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19P (KENI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 87 NM WEST-
SOUTHWEST OF SUVA, FIJI, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 18
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTI-SPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY (MSI) DEPICTS A LARGE MASS OF DEEP CONVECTION
CENTRALLY LOCATED OVER AND OBSCURING THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER. THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE BASED ON
A FORMING DIMPLE FEATURE IN THE MSI LOOP AND A 092140Z METOP-B 89GHZ
AMSU MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWING DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A
MICROWAVE EYE FEATURE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 70 KNOTS IS BETWEEN
MULTI-AGENCY DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES RANGING FROM T4.0 TO
T4.5 (65-77 KNOTS). UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM HAS
STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW WITH LESS ORGANIZED EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW.
ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS SHOWS THAT TC 19P IS IN AN AREA OF LIGHT TO
MODERATE (15 TO 20 KNOTS) NORTHWESTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS)
AND IS TRACKING THROUGH WARM (28-29 CELSIUS) SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES. TC KENI IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO ACCELERATE
SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST ALONG THE PERIPHERY OF THE NER
LOCATED TO THE NORTHEAST. GENERALLY FAVORABLE CONDITIONS WILL
PERSIST FOR THE NEXT 12 HOURS ALLOWING FOR STEADY INTENSIFICATION UP
TO 85 KNOTS BY TAU 12. AFTER TAU 12, SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES WILL
DECREASE AND VWS WILL INCREASE DUE TO AN UPPER LEVEL LONGWAVE TROUGH
DEEPENING UPSTREAM. THE OVERALL UNFAVORABLE CONDITIONS WILL CAUSE
THE SYSTEM TO BEGIN A WEAKENING TREND. AROUND TAU 24 TC 19P WILL
ALSO BEGIN EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT), COMPLETING ETT BY TAU
48. THE INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR IS IN PHASE WITH THE STORM
MOTION WHICH WILL ALLOW THE SYSTEM TO MAINTAIN STRONG WINDS
RESULTING IN AN EXTRA-TROPICAL SYSTEM WITH AN EXPANSIVE GALE FORCE
WIND FIELD.  AVAILABLE NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS IN TIGHT
AGREEMENT, LENDING OVERALL HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE JTWC TRACK
FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 100000Z IS 26 FEET. NEXT
WARNINGS AT 100900Z, 101500Z, 102100Z AND 110300Z.

REMARKS:
101500Z POSITION NEAR 22.1S 177.6W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (KENI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 243 NM
SOUTHEAST OF SUVA, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 25 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
SHOWS THAT TC 19P NO LONGER HAS AN EYE FEATURE AND THAT THE DEEP
CONVECTION IS BEGINNING TO WEAKEN. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON A
101011Z METOP-B ASCAT IMAGE WHICH CLEARLY SHOWS THE LOCATION OF THE
LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 85
KNOTS IS HEDGED SLIGHTLY BELOW DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY (CI)
ESTIMATES OF T5.0 (90 KNOTS) FROM PGTW AND KNES BASED ON A WEAKENING
CONVECTIVE STRUCTURE. ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS SHOWS FAVORABLE VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR (5 TO 15 KNOTS) AND EXCELLENT POLEWARD OUTFLOW. SEA
SURFACE TEMPERATURES REMAIN FAVORABLE BETWEEN 27 AND 28 DEGREES
CELSIUS. THESE FAVORABLE CONDITIONS WILL QUICKLY DIMINISH AS TC 19P
RAPIDLY TRACKS SOUTHEASTWARD. TC 19P WILL CONTINUE TO WEAKEN AND
CONTINUE TO ACCELERATE AS IT ENCOUNTERS INCREASED VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
AND COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES. TC 19P WILL BEGIN EXTRATROPICAL
TRANSITION BY TAU 24. BY TAU 36, TC 19P WILL COMPLETE EXTRATROPICAL
TRANSITION AND REMAIN A STRONG SYSTEM AS IT QUICKLY TRACKS
SOUTHEASTWARD. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT,
THEREFORE, THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 101200Z IS 30 FEET. NEXT

REMARKS:
102100Z POSITION NEAR 24.5S 175.0W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19P (KENI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 435 NM
SOUTHEAST OF SUVA, FIJI, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 32 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS AN INTERMITTENT CLOUD FILLED EYE FEATURE AND A SHARP
CLOUD EDGE ON THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE DEEP CONVECTION
INDICATING WESTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). COMPARISON TO A
101721Z SSMI/S 91 GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE REVEALS A DEFINED MID LEVEL
EYE DISPLACED TO THE EAST OF THE UPPER LEVEL FEATURE. THE INITIAL
POSITION IS BASED ON EXTRAPOLATION OF THE 101721Z SSMI/S IMAGE WITH
MODERATE CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 85 KNOTS IS BASED ON
A CONSENSUS OF MULTI-AGENCY DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY (CI) ESTIMATES
RANGING FROM T4.5 TO T5.0 (77 TO 90 KNOTS), HEDGED SLIGHTLY HIGHER
DUE TO A RECENT SATCON ESTIMATE OF 90 KNOTS. ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS
SHOWS THAT VWS IS BECOMING UNFAVORABLE (15 TO 30 KNOTS) AS TC 19P
BECOMES EMBEDDED IN AN UPPER LEVEL LONGWAVE TROUGH. SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES (SSTS) ARE NOW MARGINAL (26C) AND EXPECTED TO DROP BY 4
DEGREES IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS. AS TC 19P RAPIDLY ACCELERATES
SOUTHEASTWARD, THESE QUICKLY DETERIORATING CONDITIONS WILL LEAD TO
STEADY WEAKENING BEFORE TAU 12 AND THEN RAPID WEAKENING AFTER.
EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT) HAS BEGUN AND IS EXPECTED TO BE
COMPLETE BY TAU 24, WITH WINDS STILL UP TO 60 KNOTS. DYNAMIC MODEL
GUIDANCE IS IN TIGHT AGREEMENT, LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC
FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 101800Z IS 29
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 110300Z, 110900Z AND 111500Z.

REMARKS:
110900Z POSITION NEAR 29.5S 172.0W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (KENI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 540 NM SOUTH-
SOUTHWEST OF NIUE, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 25 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS
WEAKENING AND ASYMMETRIC CONVECTION AS TC 19P BECOMES EXTRATROPICAL.
THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON AN 110551Z SSMIS 91GHZ MICROWAVE
IMAGE SHOWING THE REMAINING DEEP CONVECTION HAS BEEN SHEARED TO THE
SOUTH OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE INITIAL
INTENSITY OF 65 KNOTS IS BASED ON A DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY (CI)
ESTIMATE OF T4.0 (65 KNOTS) FROM PGTW. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS SHOWS TC
19P IS EXPERIENCING UNFAVORABLE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (40 TO 50 KNOTS).
SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES HAVE BECOME UNFAVORABLE, NEAR 25 DEGREES
CELSIUS. TC 19P WILL CONTINUE TO RAPIDLY TRACK TO THE SOUTHEAST AS IT
COMPLETES EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION BY TAU 12 WITH AN INTENSITY OF 55
KNOTS. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT, THEREFORE, THERE
IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK. 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 110600Z IS 27 FEET.//
