It took quite a while for this to consolidate, but it appears to finally be doing so.

REMARKS:
142100Z POSITION NEAR 14.1S 165.3W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (SEVEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 320 NM EAST
OF PAGO PAGO, AMERICAN SAMOA HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 05 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY DEPICTS A DEEPENING WITHIN THE CURVED BANDING THAT IS
WRAPPING INTO A CONSOLIDATING LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A
141815Z SSMIS 91GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING
WRAPPING INTO THE CENTER FROM THE EASTERN PERIPHERY. THE INITIAL
POSITION IS BASED ON THE BROAD LLCC IN THE ABOVE IMAGERY WITH FAIR
CONFIDENCE. THE INTENSITY HAS BEEN INCREASED TO 35 KNOTS BASED ON
THE IMPROVED OVERALL STRUCTURE AND IS SUPPORTED BY A T2.5 (35 KNOT)
DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATE FROM NFFN AND PGTW. THE SYSTEM IS TRACKING
SLOWLY POLEWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A DEEP LAYERED SUB-TROPICAL
RIDGE (STR) TO THE EAST. THIS STR WILL REMAIN THE DOMINANT STEERING
MECHANISM THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
ARE VERY CONDUCIVE FOR INTENSIFICATION WITH LOW (5-10 KNOT) VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR (VWS), RADIAL OUTFLOW, WARM SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES
(SSTS) AND HIGH OCEAN HEAT CONTENT. THESE FAVORABLE CONDITIONS WILL
SUPPORT A PERIOD OF RAPID INTENSIFICATION OVER THE NEXT 24 TO 36
HOURS AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS SLOWLY SOUTHWESTWARD. AFTERWARDS, THE
SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY, ALBEIT AT A SLOWER RATE DUE TO
SLOWLY DECREASING SSTS, REACHING A PEAK INTENSITY AT TAU 72. IN THE
EXTENDED FORECAST, VWS WILL INCREASE AS SSTS CONTINUE TO DROP OFF,
BEGINNING A WEAKENING TREND. LIMITED MODEL GUIDANCE SHOWS A
BIFURCATION IN THE EXTENDED FORECAST. NAVGEM AND HWRF SHOW THE
SYSTEM ROUNDING THE SUB-TROPICAL RIDGE AXIS AND ACCELERATING
SOUTHEASTWARD. GFS AND THE GFS ENSEMBLE MEAN DEPICT A STR BUILDING
IN SOUTH OF THE CYCLONE CREATING QUASI-STATIONARY MOVEMENT. DUE TO
LIMITED MODEL GUIDANCE IN POOR AGREEMENT, THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN
THE INITIAL JTWC FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
141800Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 150900Z AND 152100Z. THIS

<rest omitted>
REMARKS:
152100Z POSITION NEAR 14.6S 166.4W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 07P (VICTOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 256 NM EAST OF
PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 02 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS.
ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THE CONSOLIDATION OF
BANDING, DEEP CONVECTION WITHIN ALL QUADRANTS OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRC-
ULATION CENTER (LLCC). DVORAK ESTIMATES AND RECENT SCATTEROMETRY DATA
INDICATE IMPROVING ORGANIZATION AND A PERIOD OF RAPID INTENSIFICATION
IS POSSIBLE WITHIN THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS. THE SURFACE AND UPPER
LEVEL ENVIRONMENT ARE FAVORABLE FOR MAINTAINING TC 07P THROUGH THE
NEXT 72 TO 96 HOURS. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (SSTS) AND OCEAN HEAT
CONTENT (OHC) VALUES WILL REMAIN POSITIVE NORTH OF 20 DEGREES SOUTH
AND WILL ENHANCEMENT THE LOW LEVEL STRUCTURE. AN UPPER LEVEL POINT
SOURCE ANTICYCLONE CONTINUES TO DEVELOP SLIGHTLY EASTWARD OF THE LLCC
AND IS CREATING AMPLE OUTFLOW FOR THE SYSTEM. THIS DIVERGENT PATTERN
WILL REMAIN IN PLACE THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST, BUT IS EXPECTED TO
WEAKEN SLIGHTLY IN THE 96 TO 120 TIMEFRAME. AS SSTS AND OHC DECREASE
AND UPPER LEVEL OUTFLOW WEAKENS, BEYOND TAU 96, THE OVERALL INTENSITY
WILL DECREASE, ALTHOUGH THE SYSTEM WILL REMAIN A STRONG TROPICAL
CYCLONE. TC 07P HAS BEEN UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A WEAK STEERING RIDGE
TO THE EAST WITH MODEL GUIDANCE INDICATING THIS RIDGE WILL STRENGTHEN
OVER THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS, CAUSING A SOUTHWARD TURN WITH MARGINAL
ACCELERATION THROUGH TAU 72. A TURN TO THE SOUTHWEST IN THE EXTENDED
FORECAST IS EXPECTED AS THE STEERING INFLUENCE BUILDS TO THE SOUTH OF
TC VICTOR. MODEL GUIDANCE SPREAD HAS DECREASED OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS
LEADING TO IMPROVED CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST TRACK. THE TRACK HAS
BEEN KEPT SLIGHTLY WEST OF THE CONSENSUS AS IT HAS BEEN SLOWLY
SHIFTING WESTWARD OVER THE PAST FEW MODEL CYCLES. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT

Those are some cold cloud tops if I've ever seen them. Seems like it'll be a strong one.

Up to 75 knots and look at that bend long range...


REMARKS:
160900Z POSITION NEAR 15.3S 166.2W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (VICTOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 266 NM EAST
OF PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 05 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX
HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS FURTHER
CONSOLIDATION OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER, WITH THE
FORMATION OF A RAGGED EYE FEATURE BECOMING CLOUD-FILLED OVER THE
PAST SEVERAL HOURS. A 160556Z SSMIS 91 GHZ IMAGE DEPICTS A BROAD
MICROWAVE EYE WITH DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING ALONG THE WESTERN
PERIPHERY OF THE SYSTEM. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS SUPPORTED BY
DVORAK ESTIMATES OF T4.5 (77 KNOTS). THE UPPER-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT IS
EXTREMELY FAVORABLE TO SUPPORT RAPID INTENSIFICATION OVER THE NEXT
36 HOURS WITH NEAR RADIAL OUTFLOW AND LOW (10 TO 15 KNOTS) VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR. WARM SEA-SURFACE TEMPERATURES IN EXCESS OF 28 DEGREES
CELSIUS AND HIGH OHC VALUES WILL ALSO AID IN THE INTENSIFICATION OF
THE SYSTEM DURING THIS PERIOD. TC 07P IS BEING STEERED SOUTHWARD BY
A NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTHEAST. THIS RIDGE WILL CONTINUE
TO BUILD SOUTHWESTWARD AFTER TAU 48 CAUSING TC VICTOR TO RECURVE TO
THE WEST AROUND TAU 72 AND THEN WEST-NORTHWESTWARD FROM TAU 72
THROUGH 120. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT ON THE
FORECAST TRACK THROUGH TAU 72, WITH SOME DIVERGENCE IN THE SOLUTIONS
IN LATER TAUS. THEREFORE, THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK IS SUPPORTED WITH
HIGH CONFIDENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 160600Z IS 22
FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 162100Z AND 170900Z.//

<rest omitted>
REMARKS:
162100Z POSITION NEAR 15.3S 166.7W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 07P (VICTOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 236 NM EAST OF
PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 03 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS.
ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED (EIR) SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS TC 07P HAS
BEEN UNDERGOING A PERIOD OF CYCLIC DEVELOPMENT AND WEAKENING WITH A
WELL DEFINED EYE FEATURE OBSERVED ONLY TO DEGENERATE AND BECOME
CLOUD-FILLED OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS. THE CURRENT INTENSITY OF 75
KNOTS IS BASED ON THE T4.0/4.5 DVORAKS FROM PGTW AND KNES WITH AN
OLDER RSCAT PASS SHOWING A DIRECT PASS OVER THE CORE OF THE SYSTEM,
HELPING TO DEFINE THE WIND FIELD. A RECENT 1346Z SSMIS 37H MICROWAVE
IMAGE CLEARLY SHOWS THE EYE REMAINS WELL DEFINED IN THE MID TO LOW
LEVELS AS DEEP CONVECTION HAS OBSCURED THE EYE IN THE EIR IMAGERY.
SURFACE CONDITIONS REMAIN FAVORABLE WITH SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES
(SSTS) IN THE 27 TO 28 CELSIUS RANGE, AND FAVORABLE OCEAN HEAT
CONTENT AVAILABLE TO THE NORTH OF 20 DEGREES SOUTH. UPPER LEVEL
ANALYSIS INDICATES THE POINT-SOURCE ANTICYCLONE LOCATED TO THE EAST
OF TC 07P IS SUPPORTING A VERY FAVORABLE RADIAL OUTFLOW PATTERN,
WITH ONLY LOW TO MEDIUM LEVELS (10 TO 15 KNOTS) OF VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR IN THE VICINITY OF THE SYSTEM. MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS
CONSISTENT WITH THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE EXTENSION, LOCATED TO THE
SOUTHEAST OF TC 07P, TO BUILD SOUTHWARD STEERING TC VICTOR TO THE
SOUTH IN THE NEXT 12 HOURS. THE RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO BUILD ALONG THE
SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF TC 07P BEYOND TAU 48, TURNING THE SYSTEM TO
THE WEST THROUGH THE EXTENDED PORTIONS OF THE FORECAST. A SLIGHT
DECREASE IN UPPER LEVEL SUPPORT AND LESS FAVORABLE SSTS AROUND 20
DEGREES SOUTH WILL CAUSE A SLIGHT WEAKENING IN THE INTENSITY, BUT
OVERALL THE SYSTEM WILL REMAIN AN INTENSE TROPICAL CYCLONE
THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. GIVEN THE TIMING OF THE STEERING
RIDGE DEVELOPMENT AND THE CURRENT QUASI-STATIONARY POSITIONING OF TC
07P, THE CONFIDENCE IN THE FORECAST TRACK HAS BEEN LOWERED TO
MODERATE CONFIDENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 161800Z IS
24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 170900Z AND 172100Z.//

Maybe a close call for NIUE Island, if the the cyclone recurves west as some of the better models are suggesting.http://i64.tinypic.com/33uwsb7.png

TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 07P (VICTOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 274 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 07 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS DEEP
CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A BROAD LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER. A 170627Z SSMIS 91 GHZ IMAGE DEPICTS A MICROWAVE EYE FEATURE
THAT SUPPORTS THE CURRENT POSITION WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. THE CURRENT
INTENSITY OF 70 KNOTS IS WITHIN THE LATEST DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING
FROM 65 TO 77 KNOTS. THE UPPER-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT IS FAVORABLE FOR
FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS WITH GOOD POLEWARD
OUTFLOW AND LOW (10 TO 15 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. TC VICTOR WILL
CONTINUE TRACKING SOUTHWARD ALONG AN AREA OF WARM SST (27 TO 28
DEGREE CELSIUS) OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS WHICH SHOULD AID IN THE
SLIGHT INTENSIFICATION OF THE SYSTEM. AFTER TAU 36, THE SYSTEM WILL
BEGIN TRACKING OVER COOLER WATER LEADING TO GRADUAL WEAKENING. TC
07P IS BEING STEERED SOUTHWARD BY A NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE
NORTHEAST. THIS RIDGE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD SOUTHWESTWARD AFTER TAU
36 CAUSING TC VICTOR TO TRACK WESTWARD AROUND TAU 48. FROM TAU 72
THROUGH 120, A WEAKNESS BETWEEN THE RIDGE TO THE NORTHEAST AND
ANOTHER RIDGE TO THE SOUTHWEST WILL CAUSE THE SYSTEM TO SLOW IN
FORWARD SPEED. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT ON THE
OVERALL FORECAST TRACK, THEREFORE THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK IS
SUPPORTED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT

SUBJ: TROPICAL CYCLONE 07P (VICTOR) WARNING NR 007
<rest omitted>
REMARKS:
172100Z POSITION NEAR 17.7S 166.4W.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 07P (VICTOR), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 310 NM SOUTHEAST
OF PAGO PAGO, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX
HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THE
TIGHTLY CURVED BANDING FEATURES HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING TO MAINTAIN THE
DEEP LAYERED BANDING CONVECTION NEAR THE CORE OF TC 07P. THE CURRENT
INTENSITY HAS BEEN DECREASED TO 65 KNOTS TO REFLECT THIS LOSS OF DEEP
CONVECTION WITHIN THE BANDING FEATURES. DVORAK ESTIMATES REMAIN
STEADY AT T4.0 OVER THE PAST 12 HOURS AND SUPPORT THIS RECENT DROP IN
INTENSITY. TC 07P IS TRACKING SOUTH ALONG THE WESTERN EXTENT OF A
DEVELOPING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) EXTENSION. MODEL GUIDANCE INDI-
CATES THE STR WILL BUILD ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF TC VICTOR IN
THE NEXT 24 HOURS, SHIFTING THE TRACK TO THE WEST THROUGH TAU 96.
AFTER WHICH, TC 07P WILL BEGIN TO TURN SOUTHWEST AROUND THE WESTERN
EXTENT OF THIS STR EXTENSION. INTENSITY GUIDANCE HAS SHIFTED OVER THE
PAST 24 HOURS, SUGGESTING A MORE STEADY STATE FOR THE NEXT 36 HOURS
AS THE SURFACE AND UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENTS BECOME LESS FAVORABLE
WITH SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (SSTS) DECREASING BELOW 27 DEGREES
CELSIUS POLEWARD OF 20 DEGREES SOUTH AND VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS)
SLOWLY INCREASES AFTER TAU 24. THE FORECASTS PEAK INTENSITY OF 80
KNOTS AT TAU 24 IS BASED ON THE MARGINAL ENVIRONMENT PERSISTING WITH
THE AN OBSERVED INCREASE IN POLEWARD OUTFLOW AS THE SYSTEM TAPS INTO
A MID-LATITUDE WESTERLY FLOW. EVENTUALLY THE DECREASING SSTS AND THE
STEADY INCREASE IN VWS WILL CREATE A WEAKENING TREND THROUGH THE
REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD
AGREEMENT ON THE OVERALL FORECAST TRACK, THEREFORE THE JTWC FORECAST
TRACK IS SUPPORTED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 171800Z IS 24 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 180900Z AND 182100Z.//
