AN AREA OF CONVECTION HAS PERSISTED NEAR 24.1N 159.8E,
APPROXIMATELY 480 NM NORTHWEST OF WAKE ISLAND. ANIMATED
MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS AN EXTENSIVE AREA OF DEEP
CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH THE MONSOON TROUGH THAT IS BEGINNING TO
WRAP AROUND THE EASTERN SEMI-CIRCLE OF A DEVELOPING, ELONGATED, LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 021913Z WINDSAT 37 GHZ IMAGE
REVEALS IMPROVED CONVECTIVE BANDING AROUND THE LLCC. THE AREA HAS AN
ELONGATED VORTICITY SIGNATURE BUT HAS CONTINUED TO STRENGTHEN OVER
THE PAST 12 HOURS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT THE AREA IS
UNDER STRONG (20-30 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR BUT HAS AMPLE
EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW AND ALSO HAS ABUNDANT POLEWARD OUTFLOW INTO
THE TROPICAL UPPER TROPOSPHERIC TROUGH. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE
FAVORABLE (29-30 DEGREES CELSIUS) FOR TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION.
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 15 TO 20 KNOTS.
MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1006 MB. THE
POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE
WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS MEDIUM.

interesting that this system is still subtropical but slowly transitioning into a warm core tropical system...


THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 23.2N
162.6EIMATELE, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 23.3N 162.9E, APPROXIMATELY 310
NM NORTHWEST OF WAKE ISLAND. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY AND A 040828Z SSMIS 91 GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE DEPICT A LARGE,
EXPOSED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH VIGOROUS
PERIPHERAL RAIN BANDS OVER THE EASTERN PERIPHERY. THE LLCC WAS
PRODUCED BY A TROPICAL UPPER TROPOSPHERIC TROUGH (TUTT) CELL THAT
BUILT DOWN TO THE SURFACE. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE TUTT
CELL IS SLIGHTLY DISPLACED NORTHWEST OF THE LLCC AND THEREFORE NOT
VERTICALLY STACKED ANYMORE. THE MOST RECENT AMSU CROSS SECTION
(041800Z) SHOWS A PLUS THREE DEGREE CELSIUS WARM CORE ANOMALY NEAR
2,000 KILOMETERS (KM) WITH A BUILDING PLUS ONE DEGREE CELSIUS WARM
CORE ANOMALY REACHING UP TO 10 KM. THE TREND IN THE AMSU CROSS
SECTIONS AND MODEL DERIVED PHASE SPACE OUTPUT INDICATES A CURRENT
SUBTROPICAL, SHALLOW WARM CORE SYSTEM WHICH MAY TRANSITION INTO A
TROPICAL, DEEPER WARM CORE SYSTEM.
UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS AND
ANIMATED TOTAL PRECIPITABLE WATER IMAGERY SHOW THE LLCC CLOSING
ITSELF OFF IN A COCOON OF MOISTURE SURROUNDED BY MODERATE TO STRONG
(25-30 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR TO THE NORTH AND WEST WITH A
POCKET OF WEAK (05-10 KNOTS) VWS OVER THE LLCC. THE DISTURBANCE
SHOULD DRIFT IN A GENERAL POLEWARD DIRECTION AS A MID-LATITUDE
TROUGH HAS WEAKENED THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE NORTH OF IT. ADDITIONALLY
A BUILDING NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE LOCATED TO THE SOUTHEAST SHOULD
HELP TO PUSH IT POLEWARD. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATES
THAT POLEWARD OUTFLOW INTO A TUTT CELL POSITIONED FURTHER EAST
CURRENTLY PROVIDES THE ONLY EXHAUST MECHANISM. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED
SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 15 TO 20 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL
PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1004 MB. SEE REF B (WTPN21 PGTW
041100) FOR FURTHER DETAILS. DUE TO INDICATIONS OF A CONTINUED
TRANSITION INTO A TROPICAL WARM CORE SYSTEM, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24
HOURS REMAINS HIGH.

WDPN31 PGTW 050300
MSGID/GENADMIN/JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI//
SUBJ/PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TROPICAL DEPRESSION 13W (THIRTEEN)
WARNING NR 02//
RMKS/
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TROPICAL DEPRESSION 13W (THIRTEEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 360 NM
NORTHWEST OF WAKE ISLAND, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 07
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) HAS BEEN
IMPROVING IN THE OVERALL ORGANIZATION WITHIN THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE
TRACK HAS BEEN ERRATIC, TRACKING SOUTHWARD BRIEFLY IN THE CURRENTLY
QUASI-STATIONARY STEERING ENVIRONMENT. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS
INDICATES A STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL IS BEING SUPPORTED BY A
TROPICAL UPPER TROPOSPHERIC TROUGH CELL LOCATED TO THE EAST OF THE
LLCC. ADDITIONALLY, ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY AND TOTAL
PRECIPITABLE WATER SHOW A RIBBON OF DRY AIR HAS ALMOST FULLY
ENCOMPASSED THE SYSTEM, AND APPEARS TO BE DIMINISHING THE EASTERN
OUTFLOW CHANNEL. THIS IS BEING OFFSET BY INCREASING POLEWARD OUTFLOW
TOWARDS A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH TO THE NORTH OF THE SYSTEM. VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR OVER THE AREA IS LOW (05 TO 10 KNOTS). SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES (SSTS) ARE FAVORABLE (28 TO 29 CELSIUS) ALLOWING FOR
CONTINUED DEVELOPMENT.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. NO CHANGE TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY SINCE THE PREVIOUS
PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE.
B. TD 13W IS FORECAST TO TURN NORTHWARD AS A DIGGING TROUGH
LOCATED TO THE NORTH WEAKENS THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) LOCATED TO
THE NORTHEAST OF TD 13W. A BUILDING NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE
SOUTHEAST OF TD 13W IS EXPECTED TO HELP TRACK THE SYSTEM NORTHWARD
THROUGH TAU 72. MARGINAL UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT AND SLOWLY
DECREASING SSTS WILL KEEP TD 13W FROM DEVELOPING SIGNIFICANTLY OVER
THE NEXT 72 HOURS.
C. BEYOND TAU 72, DECREASING SSTS AND THE APPROACH OF A SECONDARY
TROUGH IN THE MID-LATITUDES WILL BEGIN TO ABSORB TD 13W, AND WILL
ALSO MODIFY THE STR, WHICH BECOMES THE DOMINANT STEERING MECHANISM
AFTER TAU 72, INTO A MORE NORTHWEST-SOUTHEAST ORIENTATION. THIS
ORIENTATION WILL CAUSE TD 13W TO TRACK NORTHWESTWARD TOWARDS THE
TROUGH. EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN AROUND TAU 96.
DUE TO THE HIGH LEVEL OF UNCERTAINTY WITHIN THE TRACK AND INTENSITY
FORECAST, CONFIDENCE REMAINS LOW.//

interesting change in track!



WDPN31 PGTW 051500
MSGID/GENADMIN/JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI//
SUBJ/PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TROPICAL STORM 13W (THIRTEEN)
WARNING NR 04//
RMKS/
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TROPICAL STORM 13W (THIRTEEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 390 NM
NORTHWEST OF WAKE ISLAND, HAS TRACKED NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD AT 11
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS THE SYSTEM HAS MAINTAINED ITS CENTRAL DEEP CONVECTION.
THE INITIAL POSITION WAS BASED ON THE ABOVE ANIMATION AND
EXTRAPOLATED FROM A 050941Z AMSU-B MICROWAVE IMAGE WITH POOR
CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY WAS BASED ON A DVORAK ESTIMATE FROM
PGTW. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS TO THE NORTH
AND WEST OF RIDGE AXES IN AN AREA OF LOW TO MODERATE (10-15 KNOT)
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). THE CYCLONE IS TRACKING UNDER THE STEERING
INFLUENCE OF A BUILDING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE NORTHEAST.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. THERE IS NO CHANGE TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY FROM THE PREVIOUS
PROGNOSTIC REASONING BULLETIN.
B. TS 13W IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TRACKING NORTHWARD UP TO TAU
48. DURING THIS TIME FRAME, THE STORM WILL SEE A SLIGHT
INTENSIFICATION AS UPPER LEVEL CONDITIONS AND SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES REMAIN FAVORABLE. AFTER TAU 48, THE STEERING RIDGE IS
EXPECTED TO EXTEND WESTWARD AND CAUSE THE CYCLONE TO TRACK ON A MORE
WESTWARD TRAJECTORY. THIS WILL PLACE THE STORM MOTION IN SHARP
CONTRAST WITH UPPER LEVEL FLOW, RESULTING IN HIGHER VWS WHICH WILL
CAUSE THE GRADUAL WEAKENING OF THE SYSTEM.
C. BEYOND TAU 72, DECREASING SST'S AND PERSISTENTLY HIGH VWS WILL
ERODE THE SYSTEM DOWN TO A 25-KNOT SYSTEM BY END OF FORECAST PERIOD.
THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE TRACK FORECAST UP TO TAU 48, AFTER
TAU 48, THE NUMERICAL MODELS SIGNIFICANTLY DIVERGE. GFDN, NOGAPS, AND
GFS BRING THE VORTEX POLEWARD INTO THE BUILDING RIDGE, AN UNLIKELY
SCENARIO. THE JTWC WESTWARD TRACK FORECAST AFTER TAU 48 IN RESPONSE
TO A BUILDING RIDGE, IS CLOSER TO THE ECMWF SOLUTION. DUE TO THE
VARIANCE IN THE MODEL GUIDANCE, THERE IS A LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE
TRACK FORECAST AFTER TAU 48. //

interesting that euro is developing 13W into a monster typhoon just southeast of japan...although weakening is forecast from JTWC...maybe the environment will become extremely favorable down the road...

MSGID/GENADMIN/JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI//
SUBJ/PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TROPICAL STORM 13W (THIRTEEN) WARNING
NR 08//
RMKS//
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TROPICAL STORM 13W (THIRTEEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 550 NM
NORTH-NORTHWEST OF WAKE ISLAND, HAS TRACKED NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD AT
13 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A 061101Z AMSU-B 89 GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOW
THE DEEPEST CONVECTION REMAINS ALONG THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE SYSTEM
WITH FLARING CENTRAL CONVECTION OVER THE PARTIALLY EXPOSED LOW-
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON
THE ABOVE MENTIONED IMAGERY WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. THE CURRENT
INTENSITY IS BASED ON PERSISTENCE FROM A 060130Z OSCAT PASS
INDICATING 40-45 KNOTS OVER THE NORTHEASTERN QUADRANT OF THE LLCC.

UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM CURRENTLY RESIDES IN
BETWEEN THE NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTHEAST AND THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE NORTH WITH A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH PULLING
OUT OF THE AREA TO THE NORTH-NORTHEAST. THIS COMPLEX UPPER-LEVEL
ENVIRONMENT IS PROVIDING FOR MODERATE TO STRONG (20-30 KNOTS)
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS
OUTFLOW INTO THE TROPICAL UPPER TROPOSPHERIC TROUGH CELL TO THE
EAST AND NORTHWARD INTO THE PROPAGATING TROUGH BUT NO EVIDENCE OF
EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. THERE IS NO CHANGE TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY FROM THE
PREVIOUS PROGNOSTIC REASONING BULLETIN.
B. TS 13W IS EXPECTED TO COME UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF
THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE BUILDING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE DURING
THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. INTENSITY SHOULD REMAIN
CONSTANT AS VWS SHOULD DECREASE AND SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES WILL
REMAIN NEAR 26 DEGREES CELSIUS. HOWEVER, AS THE SYSTEM GAINS
POLEWARD LATITUDE THE AIR MASS WILL BECOME DRIER AND ENTRAIN INTO
THE LLCC HINDERING ANY FURTHER INTENSIFICATION.
C. BY TAU 96 TS 13W WILL HAVE DISSIPATED OVER WATER AND MAY EVEN
TRANSITION INTO A COLD-CORE SYSTEM BEFORE THIS TIME, AS INDICATED
BY PHASE SPACE MODEL OUTPUT. THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE
FORECAST TRACK DUE TO TIGHTLY GROUPED OBJECTIVE AIDS.//

NR 12//
RMKS//
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TROPICAL STORM 13W (THIRTEEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 745 NM NORTH-
NORTHWEST OF WAKE ISLAND, HAS TRACKED NORTHWESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
SHOWS THE CONVECTIVE BANDS HAVE BECOME MORE SHALLOW, FRAGMENTED AND
LOOSE. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON THE ABOVE ANIMATION AND
SUPPORTED BY A DISTINCT LOW LEVEL FEATURE ON A 071041Z AMSU-B
MICROWAVE IMAGE. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS HELD SLIGHTLY HIGHER THAN
THE DVORAK ESTIMATE FROM PGTW TO REFLECT GRADUAL WEAKENING. UPPER-
LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE CYCLONE IS TO THE WEST AND SOUTH OF
RIDGE AXES IN IN AN AREA OF LIGHT TO MODERATE (10-20 KNOT) VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR (VWS). IT IS BEING STEERED BY A RIDGE TO THE NORTHEAST.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. THERE IS A CHANGE TO THE PREVIOUS PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE:
THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO MAINTAIN A WARM CORE AND WILL LIKELY
DISSIPATE BEFORE TRANSITIONING TO A SUBTROPICAL OR EXTRA-TROPICAL SYSTEM.
B. TS 13W IS FORECAST TO MAINTAIN ITS CURRENT TRACK AND GRADUALLY
UNRAVEL AND ERODE DUE TO INCREASING VWS AND COOLING SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES. IT IS EXPECTED TO DISSIPATE AS A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL
CYCLONE OVER WATER BY TAU 48. THE MODELS ARE IN VERY TIGHT AGREEMENT
THROUGH THE END OF THE FORECAST, THEREFORE, THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE
IN THE FORECAST TRACK. //
