Paolo from the Philippines.

Weather Bulletin Number One
Tropical Cyclone Alert: Tropical Depression “#Paolo”
Issued At 5:00 Pm, 26 September 2013
(Valid for broadcast until the next bulletin to be issued at 11 PM today)

The Low Pressure Area (LPA) west of Zambales has developed into a Tropical Depression and was named “PAOLO”.

Location of eye/center: At 4:00 PM today, the center of Tropical Depression “PAOLO” was estimated based on all available data at 230 km West of Subic, Zambales (14.9°N, 117.9°E).

Strength: Maximum winds of 45 kph near the center.

Movement: Forecast to move West at 7 kph.

Forecast Positions: Tropical Depression “PAOLO” is expected to be at 400 km West of Subic, Zambales by tomorrow afternoon. By Saturday afternoon, it is expected to be outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) at 570 km West of Subic, Zambales.

•Estimated rainfall amount is from 5 – 7.5 mm per hour (moderate – occasionally heavy) within the 300 km diameter of the Tropical Depression.
•Tropical Depression “PAOLO” will not yet affect any part of the country. However, it will enhance the Southwest Monsoon that will bring moderate to occasionally heavy rains and thunderstorms over Zambales, Bataan, Mindoro and Northern Palawan.
•The public and the disaster risk reduction and management council concerned are advised to take appropriate actions and watch for the next bulletin to be issued at 11 PM today.

WTPN21 PGTW 260800
MSGID/GENADMIN/JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI//
SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
110 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 14.7N 118.1E TO 16.2N 113.6E
WITHIN THE NEXT 06 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 18 TO 23 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY AT
260730Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 14.8N
117.5E. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 05 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 14.5N
117.3E, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 14.8N 117.5E, APPROXIMATELY 205 NM WEST
OF MANILA, PHILIPPINES. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
SHOWS A BROAD AND ELONGATED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER WITH
FORMATIVE BANDING CONCENTRATED ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY. RECENT
SCATTEROMETRY DATA INDICATES 15-20 KNOT WIND BARBS EMBEDDED IN THE
CONVECTIVE BANDS. UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS REVEALS THE SYSTEM IS JUST TO
THE NORTHWEST OF A RIDGE AXIS IN AN AREA OF LOW (05-10 KNOT)
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR WITH A ROBUST EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA ARE PERENIALLY FAVORABLE FOR
DEVELOPMENT AT 28 TO 30 DEGREES CELSIUS. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE
WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 18 TO 23 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS
ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1005 MB. IN VIEW OF THE IMROVED UPPER LEVEL
CONDITIONS, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT
TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS UPGRADED TO HIGH.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
270800Z. //

1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TROPICAL DEPRESSION 20W (TWENTY), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 728 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF HANOI, VIETNAM, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT
03 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES A CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC) WITH IMPROVED CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE
DEFINED LLCC. A 261543Z OSCAT PASS AND A 261820Z AMSU-B MICROWAVE
IMAGE SUPPORT THE CURRENT POSITION WITH FAIR CONFIDENCE AND SHOW
IMPROVED DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING. ADDITIONALLY, THE DVORAK INTENSITY
ESTIMATES FROM PGTW, KNES, AND RJTD HAVE INCREASED TO T1.5 (25
KNOTS) AND IN ASSOCIATION WITH AVAILABLE SURFACE OBSERVATIONS,
SUPPORT THE CURRENT INTENSITY OF 25 KNOTS. OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS,
THE VORTICITY SIGNATURE HAS SIGNIFICANTLY STRENGTHENED AND BECOME
MORE SYMMETRIC. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES A FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT OF LOW TO MODERATE (05 TO 15 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
(VWS) AND FAVORABLE OUTFLOW. TD 20W IS SLOWLY TRACKING ALONG THE
SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF A LOW- TO MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) TO
THE NORTH.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. THIS IS THE INITIAL PROGNOSTIC REASONING AND SETS THE FORECAST
PHILOSOPHY.
B. TD 20W SHOULD CONTINUE TRACKING ALONG THE PERIPHERY OF THE STR
IN THE NEAR-TERM. AS THE SYSTEM INTENSIFIES, THE STEERING INFLUENCE
WILL SHIFT TO PREDOMINANTLY THE MID-LEVEL STR, CAUSING A SLIGHT TURN
TO THE WEST-SOUTHWEST BETWEEN TAU 24 AND 36. A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH
IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN THE STR BETWEEN TAU 36 AND TAU 48, ALLOWING TD
20W TO TURN BACK TO A WEST-NORTHWESTWARD TRACK AS AN EXTENSION OF
THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE REORIENTS TO THE NORTH OF THE SYSTEM. A STEADY
INTENSIFICATION IS EXPECTED THROUGH TAU 72 AS UPPER LEVEL REMAINS
FAVORABLE AND CONTINUES TO IMPROVE. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (SST)
WILL REMAIN FAVORABLE ALONG TRACK THROUGH TAU 72 (28 TO 29 CELSIUS).
C. BEYOND TAU 72, THE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT IS EXPECTED TO
REMAIN FAVORABLE THROUGH TAU 84, WHEN A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH TRANSITS
OVER CENTRAL ASIA, CREATING INCREASING LEVELS OF VWS OVER THE LLCC.
ADDITIONALLY, THE SST VALUES ARE EXPECTED TO DECREASE AS TD 20W
APPROACHES THE COAST OF VIETNAM. BEYOND TAU 96, INCREASING VWS,
DECREASING SST VALUES AND LAND INTERACTION WILL CAUSE THE SYSTEM TO
WEAKEN. AFTER LANDFALL, THE SYSTEM IS FORECASTED TO START
DISSIPATING DUE TO FRICTIONAL LAND EFFECTS THROUGH TAU 120. BASED ON
THE CURRENT SLOW TRACK SPEED AND VARIATIONS IN MODEL GUIDANCE, THE
CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST TRACK IS LOW.//

Active monsoon trough over western Pacific
Last week the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) moved slowly over the Maritime Continent and far western Pacific and contributed to enhanced tropical convection along an active monsoon trough that stretched from the Arabian Sea to the west Pacific. The MJO also aided in tropical cyclone development over the Northwest Pacific. Last week, typhoon Usagi became the third storm to reach typhoon strength, and the strongest tropical cyclone in the Northwest Pacific, so far this year. Recently, severe tropical storm Pabuk became the twenty-first named storm this season and is forecast to move slowly to the northwest and intensify in coming days. Based on the movement of the MJO, the risk of tropical cyclone development over the Northwest Pacific is likely to remain high for the coming two weeks.
Later this week the MJO is likely to move slowly eastwards into the west Pacific, enhancing convection over the region.

THE SYSTEM HAS SOLIDLY CONSOLIDATED AS THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER RELOCATED APPROXIMATELY 65 NM TO THE NORTH OF THE PREVIOUS
TRACK. CENTRAL CONVECTION HAS DEEPENED AND THE OVERALL STRUCTURE HAS
BECOME MORE SYMMETRICAL. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE ABOVE
ANIMATION AND ON CLOSELY-SPACED AGENCY FIXES WITH FAIR CONFIDENCE.
THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON THE HIGH END OF DVORAK ESTIMATES
FROM PGTW, KNES, AND RJTD TO REFLECT THE INTENSIFYING TREND. UPPER
LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS JUST TO THE SOUTH OF A RIDGE
AXIS IN AN AREA OF LOW (05 TO 10 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND
