IDW10800
Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology
Western Australia

TROPICAL CYCLONE OUTLOOK FOR NORTHWESTERN AUSTRALIA
Issued at 2:00pm WDT on Sunday the 23rd of December 2007
For the area between LONGITUDES 110 - 125 EAST

There are no significant tropical lows evident at this time although there is
increased thunderstorm activity north of 10S near an active monsoon trough.
Computer models develop a low between 115E and 120E early in the week with an
increasing chance of cyclone formation from Wednesday onwards. At this stage the
likelihood of a tropical cyclone developing in the next three days is:
Monday: LOW
Tuesday: LOW
Wednesday: MODERATE

** NOTE: Development potential is an estimate of the probability of **
** tropical cyclone development within a 24 hour period. **
** LOW = 10% or less MODERATE = 20-40% HIGH = 50% or more **

JTWC, wake up!!

JTWC 还是没有醒,我已经通知中国台风论坛,密切关注澳大利亚近海这几天的情况。

JTWC has still not waken up. But I've informed the Chinese typhoon forums and told them to be attentive on the Australian seas these days.

THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 9.5S 116.5E, IS
NOW LOCATED NEAR 10.6S 116.1E, APPROXIMATELY 100 NM SOUTH OF THE LESSER
SUNDA ISLANDS (INDONESIA). ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY AND
A 261227Z SSMIS IMAGE DEPICT CONSOLIDATING DEEP CONVECTION WITH A LARGE
AREA OF CONVECTION PERSISTING OVER THE SOUTHWEST QUADRANT. A 261338Z
ASCAT IMAGE DEPICTS A DEFINED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC)
WITH 20-25 KNOT WINDS NEAR THE CENTER AND 25-30 KNOT WESTERLY WINDS
NORTHWEST OF THE CENTER. AVAILABLE SURFACE OBSERVATIONS SUPPORT THE
STRONG WESTERLY FLOW NORTH OF THE DISTURBANCE AND ALSO SHOW SLP
NEAR 1005 MB. AN UPPER LEVEL ANTICYCLONE IS DEVELOPING JUST TO THE
EAST OF THE DISTURBANCE, PROVIDING FAVORABLE OUTFLOW AND LIMITING
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 20 TO
25 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1002 MB.
BASED ON THE IMPROVED CONSOLIDATION AND DEFINED LLCC, THE POTENTIAL
FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT
24 HOURS IS UPGRADED TO FAIR.

REMARKS:
Early visible images give a wrap of 0.5 and a DT2.5. System organisation has
significantly improved in the last 24 hours with further development likely as
it moves to the south into a more favourable environment with less wind shear.

The next bulletin for this system will be issued by: 28/0700 UTC by Perth TCWC.
