Overnight ASCAT indicates a well-defined LLC and 35kt winds, meaning it is likely already a tropical storm.

ISSUANCE OF NUMBERED TROPICAL CYCLONE WARNINGS AT THIS TIME.
WINDS IN THE AREA ARE ESTIMATED TO BE 25 TO 30 KNOTS. METSAT

NEAR 9.0S 106.6E. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTHEASTWARD AT 05 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 8.7S

SSMIS 91 GHZ IMAGE REVEAL A COMPACT LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
(LLCC) WITH PERSISTENT DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING BEGINNING TO WRAP
TIGHTLY INTO THE SYSTEM. RECENT SCATTEROMETRY DATA DEPICTS A FAIRLY
SYMMETRIC WIND FIELD WITH 25 TO 30 KNOT WINDS OVER THE EASTERN SEMI-
CIRCLE, ENHANCED BY TOPOGRAPHIC EFFECTS. THE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT
IS FAVORABLE FOR DEVELOPMENT WITH MODERATE (15 TO 20 KNOTS) VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR OFFSET BY EXCELLENT UPPER LEVEL DIVERGENCE OVER THE
SYSTEM. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30
KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1000 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.
