1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
160 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 18.4N 162.2E TO 27.0N 156.4E
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 18 TO 23 KNOTS. METSAT
IMAGERY AT 201800Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 19.0N 161.4E. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 04
KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 18.0N
162.6E IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 19.3N 162.6E, APPROXIMATELY 300 NM WEST
OF WAKE ISLAND. RECENT ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES
THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) IS LOCATED NORTHEAST OF THE
BULK OF CONVECTION. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS REVEALS THAT THE SYSTEM IS
IN AN AREA OF LOW TO MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR WITH GOOD
EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. WHILE THERE IS LIMITED GLOBAL MODEL DEVELOPMENT
OF THIS SYSTEM, THE INCREASE IN PERSISTENT CONVECTION OVER THE PAST
36 HOURS LEADS TO MODERATE CONFIDENCE THAT THIS SYSTEM WILL DEVELOP.
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 18 TO 23 KNOTS.
MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1006 MB. DUE TO
INCREASED CONSOLIDATION OF THE LLCC, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24
HOURS IS HIGH.

There's a swirl escaping to the north, but it looks like a cast-away vort based on the latest GPM pass. Looks like JTWC initialized in the correct location, back near the NE edge of the convection.

Both RSCAT (attached below) and ASCAT actually show a circulation open to the west, with the open trough axis extending back towards what is left of 93W. With this now at light, 26W technically shouldn't be classified as a tropical depression. It had me fooled, and apparently the agencies too.

Image

It should also be noted that the scatterometer passes showed the circulation was closed 12-15 hours ago.

WDPN31 PGTW 220900
MSGID/GENADMIN/JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI//
SUBJ/PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TROPICAL DEPRESSION 26W (TWENTYSIX)
WARNING NR 02//
RMKS//
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TROPICAL DEPRESSION (TD) 26W (TWENTYSIX), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY
747 NM WEST-NORTHWEST OF WAKE ISLAND, HAS TRACKED NORTH-
NORTHWESTWARD AT 19 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED
MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY (MSI) DEPICTS A PARTIALLY EXPOSED
LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH FLARING CONVECTION TO THE
SOUTHEAST OF CENTER. A 220349Z SSMI 85GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS
DEFINED SHALLOW BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE LLCC WITH LIMITED AND
DISORGANIZED DEEP CONVECTION. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE
LLCC IN THE ABOVE IMAGERY WITH LIMITED CONFIDENCE. THE CURRENT
INTENSITY HAS BEEN HELD AT 25 KNOTS USING THE CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND RJTD. TD 25W IS LOCATED IN A MARGINAL
ENVIRONMENT WITH 10 TO 20 KNOT VERTICAL WIND SHEAR BEING PARTIALLY
OFFSET BY DUAL CHANNEL OUTFLOW. HOWEVER, WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS
SUBSIDENCE ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN QUADRANT OF THE LLCC, PREVENTING
CONVECTIVE DEVELOPMENT OVER THE LLCC. THE CYCLONE IS TRACKING ALONG
THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF A LOW- TO MID-LAYERED SUB-TROPICAL RIDGE
(STR) TO THE EAST-NORTHEAST.
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY SINCE THE
PREVIOUS PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE.
B. TD 26W IS EXPECTED TO TRACK NORTHEASTWARD AS IT ROUNDS THE STR
AXIS. OVER THE NEXT 12 HOURS, THE SYSTEM WILL BEGIN TO EMBED IN THE
MID-LATITUDE WESTERLY FLOW; BEGINNING EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION
(ETT). INCREASED POLEWARD OUTFLOW WILL ALLOW THE SYSTEM TO SLIGHTLY
INTENSIFY AS IT TRACKS POLEWARD. TD 26W WILL COMPLETE ETT BY THE END
OF THE FORECAST PERIOD OR POSSIBLE SOONER, BECOMING A WEAK COLD CORE
LOW. IT IS ALSO POSSIBLE THAT THE SYSTEM DISSIPATES PRIOR TO ETT DUE
TO HIGH VWS. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT THROUGHOUT
THE FORECAST PERIOD; HOWEVER, GIVEN THE BROAD AND WEAK LOW LEVEL
STRUCTURE AND THE UNCERTAINTY IN THE FORECAST INTENSITY, THERE IS AN
OVERALL LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST.//
