Well, a quasi-stationary status has lowered its SST and weakened it. A wide low-SST area (<27C) has appeared along Ivan's track.

Just like its Atlantic counterpart, Ivan is making a comeback; the inner structure has improved significantly. However, this incarnation of Ivan could turn out to be a significant cyclone once it begins moving.

That was certainly rather... unexpected.

These are some weird storms we're having in the SHEM right now.

... And here comes the expected eye on microwave. I applaud thee, Ivan, you have exceeded expectations.

Note, however, that the most recent AMSUB imagery is lacking a southern portion of the eyewall.

LATEST AVAILABLE MICROWAVE IMAGERY, TRMM 13/2225Z SHOWS THAT DEEP
CONVECTION STILL BARELY CONSOLIDATES, MAINLY IN THE SOUTHEASTERN
SEMI-CIRCLE.
IR IMAGERY SHOWS THAT THE SYSTEM UNDERGOES AN EASTERLY SHEAR.

THE SYSTEM SHOULD GENERALLY CONTINUE TO TRACK WESTWARDS ALONG THE
NORTHERN EDGE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE BECOME THE PRIMARY STEERING FLOW.
IT SHOULD THEN KEEP ON REGULARLY INTENSIFYING - QUICKER BEYOND TAU 36H
-WITHIN A MORE FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT, UNDER THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE (WEAKER
EASTERLY SHEAR)
AND WEST OF 60E, FAR FROM THE AREA OF LOWER OCEAN HEAT CONTENT.

ON FRIDAY 15, IVAN IS FORECASTED TO GRADUALLY HAVE A POLEWARD TURN AS THE
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE WEAKENS AND A MID-TROPOSPHERIC RIDGE IS BUILDING NORTH
-EAST OF THE SYSTEM. SPEED MOVEMENT SHOULD THEN DECREASE.
AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS ARE IN BETTER AGREEMENT AND THIS FORECAST IS CLOSE
TO THE ECMWF AND A CONSENSUS OF AMERICAN MODELS.

REMARKS:
140900Z POSITION NEAR 13.5S 59.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18S (IVAN) LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 515 NM
NORTH-NORTHEAST OF LA REUNION, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO TRACK ALONG THE
NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR). THE STR WILL
REMAIN THE PRIMARY STEERING INFLUENCE THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST
PERIOD. THE AIDS REMAIN IN GOOD AGREEMENT THROUGH THE FORECAST
PERIOD. PGTW AND KNES INTENSITY ESTIMATES INDICATE TC 18S HAS
INTENSIFIED OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. THE STORM WILL CONTINUE TO
INTENSIFY DUE TO FAVORABLE OUTFLOW AND MOVEMENT OVER WATER WITH
HIGHER OCEAN HEAT CONTENT. THIS FORECAST REMAINS CONSISTENT WITH
THE PREVIOUS WARNING. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 140600Z
IS 26 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 142100Z AND 150900Z. REFER TO TROPICAL
CYCLONE 19S (NICHOLAS) WARNINGS (WTXS32 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY
UPDATES.
