REMARKS:
232100Z POSITION NEAR 14.5S 69.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 05S (DAVID), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 470 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 04
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. A 231320Z 37H GHZ CORIOLIS MICROWAVE
IMAGE SHOWS LESS ORGANIZED BANDING WRAPPING INTO A LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER WITH MOST OF THE CONVECTION LOCATED IN THE
SOUTHEASTERN QUADRANT. THE CURRENT POSITION WAS BASED ON ANIMATED
INFRARED IMAGERY IN THE CENTER OF THE DENSE OVERCAST AREA. INTENSITY
IS BASE ON CURRENT DVORAK ESTIMATES OF 45 TO 55 KNOTS. WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY INDICATES CONTINUED GOOD POLEWARD AND EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW,
WITH RADIAL OUTFLOW OUT OF THE SOUTHWEST QUADRANT. UPPER AIR
ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN AN AREA OF
MODERATE TO HIGH VERTICAL WIND SHEAR OF 20 TO 30 KNOTS, WHICH
APPEARS TO BE CAUSING THE SYSTEM TO WEAKEN. TC 05S WILL BEGIN
TURNING SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS AND SLOW AS THE
STEERING ENVIRONMENT WEAKENS. THE SYSTEM WILL THEN TURN SOUTHWEST-
WARD DUE TO THE STRENGTHENING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE BUILDING TO THE
SOUTH. DUE TO THE HIGH SHEAR AND LOW OCEAN HEAT CONTENT, TC 05S
SHOULD BEGIN DISSIPATING BY TAU 72 AND DISSIPATE BY TAU 96.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 231800Z IS 16 FEET. NUMERICAL
GUIDANCE IS SPREAD ON WHEN EXACTY THE SYSTEM WILL TURN, HOWEVER THIS
FORECAST REMAINS JUST SOUTH OF MODEL CONSENSUS. NEXT WARNINGS AT
240900Z AND 242100Z.//

STORM
.
2.B OTHER INFORMATIONS:
T=CI=3.5
THE SYSTEM SHOWS A CURVED BAND PATTERN LEADING TO DT 3.5.
DAVID SHOULD REMAIN FOR THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS UNDER THE AXIS OF THE
UPPER LEVEL RIDGE, AND MAINTAIN ITS INTENSIFICATION. IT COULD THEN
REACH
THE MINIMAL STAGE OF TROPICAL CYCLONE.
AVAILABLE NWP ARE NOT IN GOOD AGRREMENT WITH THEIR TRACKS.
THE LOW PREVIOUSLY MENTIONNED AND LOCATED NEAR 16S/81E DOES NOT SEEM
TO
INFLUENCE THE SYSTEM TRACK, WHICH HAS KEPT ON SLOWLY TRACKING
EAST-SOUTHEASTWARDS OVER THE LAST HOURS.
DAVID REMAINS UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE EQUATORWARD RIDGE
FOR
THE NEXT 12 HOURS, BUT IT SHOULD BE SLOWN DOWN BY A BUILDING RIDGE IN
THE
EAST, WHICH SHOULD BE THE STEERING FLOW BEYOND 24 HOURS, TOWARDS THE
SOUTHWEST.
BEYOND 60H, DAVID SHOULD BE UNDER THE STEERING FLOW OF THE
SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE BUILDING IN THE SOUTHWEST AND TRACK GENERALLY SOUTHWESTWARD.=

REMARKS:
240900Z POSITION NEAR 14.6S 70.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 05S (DAVID), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 445 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF DIEGO GARCIA, HAS TRACKED EASTWARD AT 06
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. DAVID HAS INTENSIFIED TO 55 KNOTS
DESPITE MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). THIS INTENSITY IS BASED
ON 3.5 DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM BOTH PGTW AND FMEE. THE TC IS
EXPECTED TO ENTER A WEAKENED STEERING ENVIRONMENT OVER THE NEXT 24
HOURS AND SLOW UNTIL MID-LEVEL RIDGING REBUILDS TO THE SOUTH OF THE
SYSTEM WITH THE PASSAGE OF AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH. THIS RIDGE WILL
BECOME THE PREDOMINANT STEERING MECHANISM AND BEGIN TO TRACK THE TC
WESTWARD. A PEAK INTENSITY OF 65 KNOTS IS NOT UNLIKELY GIVEN THAT
THE STRONGEST VWS WILL REMAIN TO THE SOUTH AND OUTFLOW WILL CONTINUE
TO IMPROVE UNTIL THE TROUGH PASSES. BY TAU 72, HOWEVER, VWS WILL
ELEVATE AND WEAKEN THE SYSTEM. DISSIPATION IS ANTICIPATED BY TAU 96.
MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GENERAL AGREEMENT WITH A TURN TO THE WEST
WITHIN THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS AND INTENSIFICATION PRIOR TO
WEAKENING. THE FORECAST TRACK IS TO THE EAST OF, AND SLOWER THAN THE
MODEL CONSENSUS TO ACCOUNT FOR A MORE GRADUAL SLOW DOWN (AND TURN)
AS THE SYSTEM BECOMES QUASISTATIONARY. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 240600Z IS 17 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 242100Z AND 250900Z.//

SYSTEM OF
SMALL SIZE.
THE WEAKENING OF THE SYSTEM SHOULD GO ON AS THE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
REMAINS MODERATE.
THE SYSTEM SHOULD TRACK SLOWLY FOR THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS, UNDER THE
OPPOSITE EFFECT OF THE WEAKENING STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE
EQUATORWARD
RIDGE, AND THE STEERING FLOW OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE BUILDING IN THE
SOUTHWEST AND THEN ACCELERATE SOUTHWESTWARDS BEYOND.=

AN AREA OF CONVECTION HAS PERSISTED NEAR 14.9S 62.7E,
APPROXIMATELY 550 NM NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION. RECENT ANIMATED
MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A 281331Z 37V GHZ SSMIS IMAGE
SHOW BURSTS OF POORLY ORGANIZED CONVECTION DEVELOPING ALONG A WEAK
AND ELONGATED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE LLCC IS
UNDER AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE AXIS, IN AN AREA OF LOW VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR AND IMPROVING POLEWARD OUTFLOW. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE
WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 15 TO 20 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE
IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1005 MB. BASED ON THE WEAK LOW LEVEL
SIGNATURE, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT
TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS POOR.
