WTPS21 PGTW 230230
MSGID/GENADMIN/JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI//
SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT//
RMKS/
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
160 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 13.1S 163.8E TO 17.3S 161.3E
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 25 TO 30 KNOTS. METSAT
IMAGERY AT 230000Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 13.4S 163.5E. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTHWESTWARD AT 06
KNOTS.
2. REMARKS:
THE AREA OF CONVECTION (INV 95P), PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 12.2S 
163.9E, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 13.4S 163.5E, APPROXIMATELY 560NM NORTH-
NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE 
IMAGERY (MSI) DEPICTS PERSISTENT DEEP CONVECTION BEGINNING TO 
CONSOLODATE AROUND A PARTIALLY EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER 
(LLCC). A 222253Z BULLSEYE ASCAT PASS SHOWS A BROAD SWATH OF 25KT 
WINDS, WITH A SMALLER REGION OF 30KT WINDS ON THE EASTERN PERIPHERY 
BEGINNING TO WRAP INTO THE LLCC FROM THE SOUTH. VERTICAL WIND SHEAR 
IS MARGINAL TO FAVORABLE WITH A POINT SOURCE OFFSET SLIGHTLY TO THE 
NORTHEAST CREATING GOOD DIFFLUENCE ALOFT. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES 
ARE CONDUCIVE TO DEVELOPMENT AT 28 CELSIUS BUT BECOME UNFAVORABLE 
SOUTH OF NEW CALEDONIA. GLOBAL MODELS ARE IN MODERATE AGREEMENT ON 
THE LIKELIHOOD OF DEVELOPMENT AS 95P MAKES A CURVING TRACK TO THE 
SOUTHEAST, WITH THE UKMO AND JGSM DISSENTING. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED 
SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL 
PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1000 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE 
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 
HOURS IS HIGH.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY 
240230Z.//

REMARKS:
242100Z POSITION NEAR 14.9S 158.8E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 17P (IRIS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 571 NM
WEST-NORTHWEST OF PORT VILA, VANUATU, HAS TRACKED WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED 
ENHANCED INFRARED IMAGERY (EIR) DEPICTS FLARING CONVECTION TO 
THE NORTH WRAPPING INTO THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 
241654Z SSMIS 91GHZ IMAGE ALSO EMPHASIZES THE BANDING WRAPPING INTO 
THE LLCC WITH CONVECTION TO THE NORTH. THE INITIAL POSITION IS 
PLACED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE ON THE EIR LOOP AND THE 241654Z 
MICROWAVE IMAGE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON THE UPPER END OF 
DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES RANGING FROM T2.0 TO T2.5 (30-35 
KNOTS). TC 17P IS CURRENTLY IN AN AREA OF FAVORABLE VWS (5-10KTS) 
WITH GOOD DIVERGENCE ALOFT AND A FORMATIVE POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL. 
HOWEVER, HIGH VWS SURROUNDS TC 17P TO THE SOUTH AND WEST INHIBITING 
EXTENSIVE DEVELOPMENT. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE CONDUCIVE TO 
DEVELOPMENT AT 28 CELSIUS BUT BECOME UNFAVORABLE AROUND TAU 72, WHEN 
THE SYSTEM TRACKS SOUTH OF NEW CALEDONIA.  GLOBAL MODELS ARE IN 
GENERAL AGREEMENT THAT TC 17P WILL MOVE SOUTHWESTWARD FOR THE FIRST 
12-24HRS BEFORE MOVING ON A SOUTHERLY TRACK UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A 
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) TO THE EAST. AT APPROXIMATELY TAU 60, TC 17P 
WILL TURN TO A SOUTHEASTERLY TRACK THROUGH TAU 96. AFTER TAU 96 THE 
SYSTEM WILL BECOME QUASI-STATIONARY BEFORE TRACKING BACK TO THE 
NORTHWEST AS AN EXTENSION OF A BUILDING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE OVER 
EASTERN AUSTRALIA TAKES OVER AS THE PRIMARY STEERING FEATURE. 
DUE TO THE UNCERTAINTY IN THE MODEL GUIDANCE, THERE IS OVERALL LOW 
CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE 
HEIGHT AT 241800Z IS 14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 250300Z, 250900Z, 
251500Z AND 252100Z. THIS CANCELS AND SUPERSEDES REF A (WTPS21 PGTW

REMARKS:
250300Z POSITION NEAR 14.8S 158.8E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 17P (IRIS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 573 NM WEST-
NORTHWEST OF PORT VILA, VANUATU, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 04
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED MULTI-SPECTRAL 
IMAGERY (MSI) DEPICTS AN EXPANSIVE AREA OF FLARING CONVECTION 
LOCATED TO THE NORTH OF A PARTIALLY EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION 
CENTER (LLCC). THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE 
BASED ON THE MSI LOOP AND A 242254Z METOP-A ASCAT PARTIAL IMAGE. THE 
INITIAL INTENSITY OF 35 KNOTS IS BASED ON THE UPPER END OF DVORAK 
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES RANGING FROM T2.0 TO T2.5 (30-35 KNOTS) 
FROM KNES AND PGTW. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ALSO SUPPORTED BY THE 
AFOREMENTIONED ASCAT IMAGE WHICH SHOWS 30 KNOT (30-34 KNOT) WIND 
BARBS IN THE EASTERN SEMI-CIRCLE. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS REVEALS THE 
SYSTEM HAS GOOD EQUATORWARD AND POLEWARD OUTFLOW WITH THE LATTER 
TAPPING INTO THE MID-LATITUDE WESTERLIES. ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS 
SHOWS THAT TC IRIS IS CURRENTLY IN AN AREA OF LOW (5-10KTS) VERTICAL 
WIND SHEAR AND IS TRACKING THROUGH WARM (28-29 CELSIUS) SEA SURFACE 
TEMPERATURES. THE SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK GENERALLY SOUTHWARD 
ALONG THE WESTERN EXTENT OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE, WITH THE TRACK 
BECOMING SOUTHEASTWARD AFTER TAU 36. TC 17P WILL GRADUALLY INTENSIFY 
UNDER FAVORABLE CONDITIONS THROUGH TAU 48, REACHING A PEAK OF 55 
KNOTS. AFTER TAU 48, INCREASING VWS AND COOLING SEA SURFACE 
TEMPERATURES WILL BEGIN TO WEAKEN THE SYSTEM. THE SYSTEM WILL 
CONTINUE TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGH TAU 72, AFTER WHICH THE 
CYCLONE WILL BECOME QUASI-STATIONARY BEFORE TRACKING BACK TO THE 
NORTHWEST AS AN EXTENSION OF A BUILDING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE OVER 
EASTERN AUSTRALIA TAKES OVER AS THE PRIMARY STEERING FEATURE. 
DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT THROUGH TAU 48 WHEN 
INDIVIDUAL CONSENSUS MEMBERS BEGIN TO VARY SIGNIFICANTLY ON THE 
TIMING AND SHARPNESS OF THE TURN TO THE NORTHWEST. THE JTWC TRACK 
FORECAST IS PLACED NEAR THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS WITH OVERALL LOW 
CONFIDENCE DUE TO THE UNCERTAINTY IN THE MODEL GUIDANCE. MAXIMUM 
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 250000Z IS 14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 
250900Z, 251500Z, 252100Z AND 260300Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 16P

REMARKS:
252100Z POSITION NEAR 16.3S 158.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 17P (IRIS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 570 NM
NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 05
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED (EIR) 
SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS AN EXPANSIVE AREA OF FLARING DEEP CONVECTION 
LOCATED OVER AND OCCLUDING A WEAK LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER 
(LLCC). THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH FAIR CONFIDENCE BASED ON 
THE EIR LOOP AND A 251859Z 37GHZ SSMIS MICROWAVE IMAGE THAT SHOWS A 
BROAD LLCC WITH DEEP CONVECTION IN THE SOUTHEAST QUADRANT. THE 
INITIAL INTENSITY OF 35 KNOTS IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES OF T2.5 
FROM PGTW AND KNES. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS REVEALS THAT TC 17P HAS A 
STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL BUT NO ORGANIZED EQUATORWARD 
OUTFLOW. ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS SHOWS THAT THE SYSTEM IS IN AN AREA 
OF LOW (10-15 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND IS TRACKING THROUGH 
WARM (29-30 CELSIUS) SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES. TC IRIS WILL CONTINUE 
TO TRACK ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO 
THE EAST THROUGH TAU 48. AFTERWARD, THE BUILDING SUB TROPICAL RIDGE 
TO THE SOUTH WILL BECOME THE PRIMARY STEERING FEATURE AND DEFLECT 
THE CYCLONE WESTWARD INITIALLY, THEN NORTHWESTWARD. THE SYSTEM IS 
FORECAST TO SLOWLY INTENSIFY UNDER MARGINALLY FAVORABLE CONDITIONS 
THROUGH TAU 36. AFTER TAU 36, INCREASING VWS WILL BEGIN A WEAKENING 
TREND, REDUCING TC 17P TO A 30 KNOT SYSTEM BY TAU 72. AVAILABLE 
MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR AGREEMENT HOWEVER, GIVEN THE WEAK NATURE 
OF THE SYSTEM, COMPLEX STEERING ENVIRONMENT, AND VARIATIONS IN THE 
TIMING OF THE WESTWARD DEFLECTION, THERE IS OVERALL LOW CONFIDENCE 
IN THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 
251800Z IS 14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 260300Z, 260900Z, 261500Z AND

REMARKS:
260300Z POSITION NEAR 17.0S 158.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 17P (IRIS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 560 NM
NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED 
MULTI-SPECTRAL (MSI) SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS FLARING DEEP CONVECTION 
DISPLACED TO THE NORTHEAST OF A FULLY EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION 
CENTER (LLCC). THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE 
BASED ON THE EXPOSED LLCC IN THE MSI LOOP. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 
35 KNOTS IS HEDGED ON THE UPPER END OF DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY 
ESTIMATES OF T2.0 FROM PGTW AND KNES. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS REVEALS 
THAT TC 17P HAS GOOD POLEWARD OUTFLOW HOWEVER, NO ORGANIZED 
EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS SHOWS THAT THE SYSTEM IS 
IN AN AREA OF LOW (5-10 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND IS TRACKING 
THROUGH WARM (28-29 CELSIUS) SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES. INITIALLY, TC 
17P IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING ALONG THE WESTERN EXTENT OF THE 
NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE LOCATED TO THE EAST. AFTER TAU 48, THE 
BUILDING SUB TROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH WILL TAKE OVER AS THE 
PRIMARY STEERING FEATURE AND WILL CAUSE TC IRIS TO DEFLECT WESTWARD. 
THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO SLOWLY INTENSIFY UNDER MARGINALLY 
FAVORABLE CONDITIONS THROUGH TAU 36, REACHING A PEAK OF 45 KNOTS. 
AFTER TAU 36, VERTICAL WIND SHEAR WILL INCREASE AND CAUSE THE SYSTEM 
TO WEAKEN, BECOMING A 30 KNOT SYSTEM BY TAU 72. AVAILABLE MODEL 
GUIDANCE IS IN POOR AGREEMENT WITH SUBSTANTIAL VARIATIONS IN BOTH 
THE TIMING AND SHARPNESS OF THE TURN TO THE WEST. THE LARGE 
VARIATIONS IN THE MODEL GUIDANCE LEND OVERALL LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE 
JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 260000Z IS 
14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 260900Z, 261500Z, 262100Z AND 270300Z.//

REMARKS:
262100Z POSITION NEAR 19.0S 158.2E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 17P (IRIS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 494 NM 
WEST-NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 
07 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED SHORTWAVE INFRARED 
SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS FLARING CONVECTION OVER A WEAK, PARTIALLY 
EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE INITIAL POSITION 
IS PLACED ON THE 261800Z PGTW DVORAK FIX WITH FAIR CONFIDENCE. THE 
INITIAL INTENSITY IS CONSISTENT WITH THE PGTW DVORAK CURRENT 
INTENSITY OF T2.5 (35 KNOTS) AND SLIGHTLY ABOVE KNES AND OBJECTIVE 
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T1.5 TO T2.0. ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS REVEALS 
MARGINAL CONDITIONS WITH LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS), GOOD 
POLEWARD OUTFLOW, POOR EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW, AND SEA SURFACE 
TEMPERATURES OF 27 TO 28 CELSIUS. TC 17P WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK 
ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE 
EAST UNTIL TAU 36. AT THAT POINT, A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH 
WILL BECOME THE PRIMARY STEERING INFLUENCE AND THE CYCLONE WILL 
BEGIN A WESTWARD TRACK. THE SYSTEM WILL INTENSIFY SLIGHTLY UNDER 
MARGINALLY FAVORABLE CONDITIONS UNTIL TAU 24 WHEN CONVERGENCE IN 
THE UPPER LEVELS FROM AN APPROACHING UPPER LEVEL TROUGH CAUSES THE 
CYCLONE TO WEAKEN AND DISSIPATE BY TAU 48. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE 
GENERALLY AGREES ON THE SYSTEM TRACK BUT VARIES SIGNIFICANTLY IN 
THE TIMING AND SPEED OF THE WESTWARD TRACK SHIFT. THIS UNCERTAINTY 
LENDS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM 
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 261800Z IS 14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 
270300Z, 270900Z, 271500Z AND 272100Z.//

270900Z POSITION NEAR 20.5S 158.4E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 17P (IRIS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 451 NM WEST-
NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWARD AT 07 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MSI SHOWS THE ASSOCIATED FLARING
CONVECTION HAS SIGNIFICANTLY COLLAPSED AS IT REMAINED SHEARED
EASTWARD OF A FULLY EXPOSED LLCC. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED WITH
HIGH CONFIDENCE ON THE WELL-DEFINED LLCC IN THE MSI LOOP. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY OF 30 KNOTS, WHICH IS NOW BELOW JTWC WARNING CRITERIA, IS
BASED ON THE DVORAK ESTIMATE FROM PGTW AND SUPPORTED BY A RECENT
ASCAT DIRECT PASS SHOWING MAXIMUM OF 30 KNOTS ALONG THE EASTERN FLANK
UNDER THE CONVECTION. AS THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO TRACK POLEWARD, THE
VWS IS EXPECTED TO FURTHER INCREASE AND SSTS TO DECREASE. THE
COMBINED EFFECT WILL FURTHER ERODE THE SYSTEM. THIS IS THE FINAL
WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM BY THE JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI.
THE SYSTEM WILL BE CLOSELY MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF REGENERATION.

1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
100 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 14.9S 149.0E TO 19.0S 149.4E
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 27 TO 32 KNOTS. METSAT
IMAGERY AT 010900Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 15.6S 149.1E. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 05
KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION (REMNANTS OF TC 17P) PREVIOUSLY 
LOCATED NEAR 14.5S 148.4E, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 15.6S 149.1E, 
APPROXIMATELY 210 NM EAST-NORTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA. ANIMATED 
MULTI-SPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A 312348Z MHS 89GHZ IMAGE SHOW 
A BROAD LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER WITH INCREASING AMOUNTS OF 
PERSISTENT CONVECTION AND IMPROVING LOW LEVEL BANDING EASILY 
DISCERNABLE IN THE IMAGES. A 312349Z ASCAT PARTIAL PASS SHOWS A 
BROAD SWATH OF PRIMARILY 20-25 KNOT WINDS ENCIRCLING THE 
DISTURBANCE, WITH PATCHES OF 30 KNOT WINDS TO THE SOUTH. THE 
DISTURBANCE IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN A FAIR ENVIRONMENT, WITH LIMITED 
DIVERGENCE ALOFT AND A NARROW RIBBON OF FAVORABLE VERTICAL WIND 
SHEAR SURROUNDED BY HIGHER (20-30 KNOTS) VALUES. SEA SURFACE 
TEMPERATURES (28-30 CELSIUS) ARE FAVORABLE. THE REMNANTS OF 17P HAVE 
GRADUALLY BEEN TRANSITIONING FROM A SUB-TROPICAL STRUCTURE BACK TO 
TROPICAL, WITH FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY(FSU) PHASE SPACE DIAGRAM 
INDICATING A DEEPENING WARM CORE. THE TOTAL PRECIPITABLE WATER 
CONTENT HAS BEEN INCREASING OVER RECENT HOURS IN THE CENTER OF THE 
DISTURBANCE. AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS FURTHER SOUTHWARD THE ENVIRONMENT 
IS EXPECTED TO BECOME MORE FAVORABLE. GLOBAL MODELS AGREE THAT THE 
REMNANTS OF 17P WILL BEGIN TO TRACK SOUTHWARD, WITH MOST MODELS 
SHOWING FURTHER INTENSIFICATION OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS. MAXIMUM 
SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA 
LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1000 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR 
THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 
HOURS IS HIGH.

REMARKS:
020300Z POSITION NEAR 16.9S 148.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 17P (IRIS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 167 NM EAST OF 
CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER 
THE PAST SIX HOURS. AVAILABLE METEOROLOGICAL DATA SUPPORTS THE 
REGENERATION OF TC 17P, THEREFORE, JTWC HAS RESUMED WARNINGS. THIS 
CANCELS AND SUPERSEDES REF A (WTPS21 011030). ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
(MSI) IMAGERY DEPICTS AN EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) 
WITH CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING IN FROM THE EAST AND NORTH. A 
012036Z SSMIS 91 GHZ IMAGE REVEALS DEEP CONVECTION CONCENTRATED 
SOUTH AND EAST OF THE CENTER, AND IN THE TRAILING BAND TO THE NORTH. 
THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE EXPOSED LLCC IN MSI IMAGERY AND 
RADAR IMAGERY FROM AUSTRALIA. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS SET AT 35 
KNOTS BASED ON A 012248Z PARTIAL ASCAT PASS SHOWING A SWATH OF 35 KT 
WIND BARBS OVER 50NM TO THE EAST OF THE CENTER, AS WELL AS 
OBSERVATIONS FROM FLINDERS REEF STATION RECORDING WINDS IN EXCESS OF
35 KTS FOR 4 HOURS. THIS INTENSITY ESTIMATE AGREES WITH THE KNES AND 
PGTW DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T2.5 (35 KTS). 
ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT DIVERGENCE ALOFT IS SUPPORTING 
CONVECTION DESPITE MODERATE 15-20 KT VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). SEA 
SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE A FAVORABLE 27-28 DEGREES CELSIUS. TC 17P 
MADE A TURN TO THE NORTHWEST THEN HAS REMAINED QUASISTATIONARY (QS) 
IN THE PAST 9 HOURS. WHILE THE REMNANTS OF 17P HAD BEEN SUBTROPICAL 
ON 27 MAR, IT RE-ACQUIRED TROPICAL CHARACTERISTICS, GROWING 
INCREASINGLY MOIST AND WARM CORE, IN THE PAST SEVERAL DAYS AS IT 
MOVED NORTHWESTWARD. IT IS LOCATED IN A WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT 
BETWEEN A NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTHEAST AND ANOTHER RIDGE 
OVER THE AUSTRALIAN CONTINENT. THE JTWC INTENSITY FORECAST SUGGESTS 
GRADUAL INTENSIFICATION TO A PEAK OF 55 KTS AT 36 HOURS. IN THE NEAR 
TERM, GLOBAL MODELS ALL INDICATE A SOUTHERLY COMPONENT TO THE STORM 
MOTION, WITH HWRF AND GFS BEING WESTERN OUTLIERS. ECMWF, NAVGEM, AND 
AFUM INDICATE A SOUTHEASTWARD TRACK AFTER A POSSIBLE LOOP. IN THE 
LONG TERM, NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS TRIFURCATED, WITH HWRF AND 
GFS MOVING TC 17P CONTINUING WESTWARD TOWARD AUSTRALIA, COAMPS AND 
NAVGEM TRACKING TC 17P SOUTHEASTWARD THEN EASTWARD, AND ECMWF AND 
THE UKMET MODELS SHOWING EVENTUAL NORTHEASTWARD MOTION. AS A RESULT, 
MULTIPLE DISSIPATION SCENARIOS ARE POSSIBLE AT THE END OF THE 
FORECAST PERIOD. DUE TO HIGH SPREAD IN THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS, 
THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM 
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 020000Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 
020900Z, 021500Z, 022100Z AND 030300Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 18P

REMARKS:
020900Z POSITION NEAR 17.1S 148.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 17P (IRIS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 178 NM EAST
OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 03 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THAT
CONVECTION AROUND THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) CONTINUES
TO IMPROVE IN STRUCTURE. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE WILLIS
ISLAND RADAR LOOP WHICH SHOWS A DEFINED CIRCULATION. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY OF 35 KNOTS IS BASED ON DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T2.5
(35 KNOTS) FROM BOTH PGTW AND KNES. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS SHOWS
FAVORABLE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (5 TO 15 KNOTS) ALONG WITH GOOD
EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW AND EXCELLENT POLEWARD OUTFLOW. SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURES ARE FAVORABLE FOR DEVELOPMENT, NEAR 28 DEGREES CELSIUS.
THESE FAVORABLE CONDITIONS WILL ALLOW FOR MODERATE INTENSIFICATION
THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST, REACHING A PEAK INTENSITY OF 55 KNOTS BY TAU
36. TC 17P IS EXPERIENCING WEAK STEERING FLOW BUT IS GENERALLY
TRACKING AROUND THE NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE (NER) LOCATED TO THE
NORTHEAST. TC 17P WILL TRACK GENERALLY TOWARDS THE EAST FOR THE
REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST. DUE TO THE WEAK STEERING PATTERN DYNAMIC
MODEL GUIDANCE SHOWS A LARGE SPREAD IN SOLUTIONS. THEREFORE, THERE IS
LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK. THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK IS
PLACED NEAR THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 020600Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 021500Z, 022100Z,
030300Z AND 030900Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 18P (JOSIE) WARNINGS

REMARKS:
022100Z POSITION NEAR 17.5S 148.7E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 17P (IRIS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 169 NM EAST OF
CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 02 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE 
IMAGERY SHOWS A DEEP MASS OF CENTRAL CONVECTION COVERING THE LOW 
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH 
LOW CONFIDENCE BASED ON THE CAIRNS ISLAND RADAR LOOP WHICH SHOWS 
SOME CLOUD BANDING INTO A CIRCULATION CENTER ON THE EASTERN SIDE OF 
THE DEEP CONVECTION. THIS POSITION IS SUPPORTED BY AN OBSERVATION 
FROM FLINDERS REEF SHOWING SOUTHERLY WINDS JUST TO THE WEST. THE 
INITIAL INTENSITY OF 45 KNOTS IS BASED ON A CONSENSUS OF DVORAK 
ESTIMATES RANGING FROM T2.5 TO T3.5 (35 TO 55 KNOTS) AND FLINDERS 
REEF OBSERVATIONS REPORTING UP TO 49 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS 
SHOWS FAVORABLE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (10 TO 15 KNOTS) ALONG WITH 
EXCELLENT POLEWARD OUTFLOW DUE TO AN UPPER LEVEL ANTICYCLONE 
CENTERED TO THE NORTHEAST. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES REMAIN FAVORABLE 
FOR DEVELOPMENT, NEAR 28 DEGREES CELSIUS. THESE FAVORABLE CONDITIONS 
WILL ALLOW FOR STEADY INTENSIFICATION THROUGH TAU 24, WITH A PEAK 
INTENSITY OF 65 KNOTS. TC 17P IS UNDER COMPETING STEERING INFLUENCES 
WITH A NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE (NER) LOCATED TO THE NORTHEAST AND A 
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) ANCHORED OVER AUSTRALIA. TC 17P WILL TRACK 
GENERALLY TOWARDS THE SOUTHEAST UNTIL TAU 72 BEFORE DEFLECTING 
EASTWARD ALONG THE NER. A FEW MODELS ARE FAVORING AN ALTERNATE 
SCENARIO IN WHICH THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE EXTENSION BUILDS IN TO THE 
SOUTH AND TRACKS 17P WESTWARD TOWARD LAND AROUND TAU 72. DUE TO THE 
LARGE SPREAD IN DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE AS WELL AS UNCERTAINTY IN THE 
INITIAL POSITION, THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 021800Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS 
AT 030300Z, 030900Z, 031500Z AND 032100Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE

REMARKS:
030300Z POSITION NEAR 17.1S 149.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 17P (IRIS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 184 NM EAST OF
CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED EASTWARD AT 01 KNOTS OVER THE PAST
SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED MULTI-SPECTRAL (MSI) SATELLITE SHOWS A 
DEEP CONVECTION TO THE SOUTH OF A PARTIALLY EXPOSED LOW LEVEL 
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH HIGH 
CONFIDENCE BASED ON THE MSI LOOP AND WILLIS ISLAND RADAR LOOP. THE 
INITIAL INTENSITY OF 45 KNOTS IS BASED ON MULTI-AGENCY DVORAK 
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T3.0 (45 KNOTS) AND SUPPORTED BY A 
SATCON ESTIMATE OF 47 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS 
REVEALS THE SYSTEM HAS AN EXCELLENT POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL DUE TO 
AN UPPER LEVEL ANTICYCLONE CENTERED TO THE NORTHEAST. ENVIRONMENTAL 
ANALYSIS SHOWS THE SYSTEM IS IN AN AREA OF LOW (5-10 KNOTS) VERTICAL 
WIND SHEAR, AND IS TRACKING THROUGH WARM (28 CELSIUS) SEA SURFACE 
TEMPERATURES. OVERALL FAVORABLE CONDITIONS WILL ALLOW FOR STEADY 
INTENSIFICATION THROUGH TAU 36, REACHING A PEAK INTENSITY OF 65 
KNOTS. TC 17P IS UNDER COMPETING STEERING INFLUENCES WITH A NEAR-
EQUATORIAL RIDGE (NER) LOCATED TO THE NORTHEAST AND A 
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) ANCHORED OVER AUSTRALIA. TC IRIS IS FORECAST 
TO  TRACK SOUTHEAST THROUGH TAU 48 ALONG THE NER. AROUND THIS TIME, 
THE STR WILL TRANSIT TO THE WEST AND A TROUGH MOVES IN OVER CENTRAL 
AUSTRALIA. AFTER TAU 48 THE SYSTEM WILL BECOME QUASI STATIONARY IN 
AN AREA OF INCREASINGLY UNFAVORABLE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR, THE RESULT 
OF THE TROUGH OVER AUSTRALIA. THE SYSTEM WILL STEADILY DISSIPATE 
BETWEEN TAU 72 AND TAU 120, WITH THE REMNANT SURFACE LOW LEVEL 
TRACKING BACK TO THE NORTHWEST DUE TO THE SOUTHEASTERLY SURFACE 
FLOW. HOWEVER, THERE IS A BIFURCATION IN THE AVAILABLE MODEL 
GUIDANCE. AN ALTERNATE SCENARIO, AND THE PREVIOUS FORECAST 
PHILOSOPHY, IS THAT THE SYSTEM COULD TRACK EASTWARD AROUND THE 
SOUTHERN EXTENT OF THE NER AND DISSIPATE UNDER INCREASING VWS. DUE 
TO THE BIFURCATION IN THE DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE, THERE IS OVERALL 
LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE 
HEIGHT AT 030000Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 030900Z, 031500Z, 
032100Z AND 040300Z. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE 18P (JOSIE) WARNINGS

REMARKS:
030900Z POSITION NEAR 18.0S 149.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 17P (IRIS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 230 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 10
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MSI SHOWS THE SYSTEM APPEARS
TO HAVE DISLODGED FROM A QUASI-STATIONARY (QS) STATE. HOWEVER, THE
CENTRAL CONVECTION REMAINS DISPLACED SOUTHEAST OF THE LLC. THE
INITIAL POSITION IS EXTRAPOLATED WITH GOOD CONFIDENCE FROM LOW CLOUD
BANDS FEEDING INTO THE LLC THAT IS APPARENT IN THE MSI LOOP. THIS
POSITION IS ALSO LINED UP WITH AN ELONGATED LOW REFLECTIVITY
CIRCULATION FEATURE IN THE 030451Z SSMI MICROWAVE PASS. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS BASED ON CONGRUENT DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND KNES
OF T3.0 (45 KNOTS). UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES TC 17P IS IN AN
AREA OF MODERATE (15-20 KNOT) NORTHWESTERLY VWS. HOWEVER, AN
EXCELLENT POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL IS PARTIALLY OFFSETTING THE VWS
AND PROVIDING VENTILATION TO THE CONVECTION. ALONG-TRACK SSTS AT 29C
ARE ALSO CONDUCIVE. TC IRIS IS NOW TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHWEST
PERIPHERY OF THE NER TO THE NORTHEAST AS THE COMPETING STR TO THE
SOUTHWEST HAS RECEDED WESTWARD. THE CYCLONE WILL CONTINUE ON THIS
TRACK UP TO TAU 36; AFTERWARD, THE STR WILL RE-BUILD AND ONCE AGAIN
COMPETE FOR STEERING, TRIGGERING ANOTHER QS STATE. BY TAU  96, THE
STR WILL EXTEND TO THE SOUTH AND ASSUME STEERING, NUDGING THE CYCLONE
SLOWLY WESTWARD. THE AFOREMENTIONED MARGINALLY FAVORABLE CONDITIONS
WILL PREVAIL FOR ABOUT TWO DAYS AND PROMOTE MODERATE INTENSIFICATION
UP TO 60 KNOTS. AFTERWARD, INCREASING VWS WILL MOSTLY BE RESPONSIBLE
FOR A GRADUAL WEAKENING TOWARD DISSIPATION BY END OF FORECAST. THE
AVAILABLE NUMERIC GUIDANCE IS SIGNIFICANTLY SPREAD AND BIFURCATED. IN
VIEW OF THIS, THERE IS OVERALL LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK
FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 030600Z IS 14 FEET. NEXT

REMARKS:
032100Z POSITION NEAR 19.1S 150.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 17P (IRIS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 281 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD
AT 06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED EIR SATELLITE IMAGERY 
REVEALS TIGHTLY WRAPPING CONVECTIVE BANDING COVERING THE LLCC. THE 
INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH GOOD CONFIDENCE BASED ON A 031800Z 
PGTW RADAR FIX FROM THE MACKAY RADAR LOOP, SUPPORTED BY A 031807Z 
SSMIS 37 GHZ IMAGE SHOWING A LOW LEVEL EYE FEATURE. THE INITIAL 
INTENSITY IS BASED ON MULTI-AGENCY DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY 
ESTIMATES RANGING FROM T3.0 TO T3.5 (45 TO 55 KNOTS), SUPPORTED BY 
OBSERVATIONS FROM CREAL REEF OF UP TO 47 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS 
INDICATES TC 17P IS IN AN AREA OF SOMEWHAT FAVORABLE (10-15 KNOT) 
NORTHERLY VWS WITH AN EXCELLENT POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL PROVIDING 
DIVERGENCE. ALONG-TRACK SSTS REMAIN FAVORABLE AT 27C. TC IRIS IS 
TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHWEST PERIPHERY OF THE NER EXTENSION TO THE 
NORTHEAST, AND IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO THE SOUTHEAST ON THIS 
TRACK UNTIL TAU 36 AND GRADUALLY WEAKEN DUE TO INCREASING VWS. AFTER 
TAU 36, THE STR TO THE SOUTHWEST WILL RE-BUILD AND ONCE AGAIN 
COMPETE FOR STEERING, TRIGGERING ANOTHER QS STATE. AS TC 17P 
WEAKENS, IT IS EXPECTED TO DEFLECT TOWARD THE NORTHWEST UNDER THE 
INFLUENCE OF MID LAYER STEERING FLOW, BEFORE DISSIPATING AT TAU 96 
DUE TO THE NORTHERLY VWS. AVAILABLE NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS 
SIGNIFICANTLY SPREAD AND BIFURCATED AFTER TAU 24. IN VIEW OF
THIS, THERE IS OVERALL LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST THAT
IS LAID SLIGHTLY SLOWER AND WESTWARD OF MODEL CONSENSUS TO OFFSET THE
EASTWARD BIFURCATED TRACKS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 
031800Z IS 16 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 040300Z, 040900Z, 041500Z AND

REMARKS:
040300Z POSITION NEAR 19.4S 150.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 17P (IRIS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 299 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD
AT 04 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL 
SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS DIMINISHING CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO 
THE CENTER, PARTIALLY COVERING THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER 
(LLCC). THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH GOOD CONFIDENCE BASED ON 
THE MSI LOOP AND 00Z PGTW FIX, SUPPORTED BY A 032010Z SSMIS 37GHZ 
MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWING A PARTIALLY CLOSED LOW REFLECTIVITY DIMPLE 
AT THE CENTER. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON A 032249Z ASCAT 
PASS REVEALING SEVERAL 50 KT WINDS BARBS CLOSE TO THE CENTER, AND IS 
SUPPORTED BY A 46 KT SUSTAINED OBSERVATION FROM 68NM AWAY, IMPLYING 
HIGHER WINDS CLOSER TO THE CENTER. THE INTENSITY AGREES WITH THE 
PGTW CURRENT INTENSITY (CI) ESTIMATE OF T3.5 (55 KTS) AND IS 
SLIGHTLY ABOVE THE KNES CI OF T3.0 (45 KTS). UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS 
INDICATES TC 17P IS IN AN AREA OF MODERATE TO HIGH (15-25 KT) 
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND THERE IS CONVERGENCE ALOFT TO THE 
NORTHWEST, BOTH OF WHICH ARE SUPPRESSING CONVECTION. THESE 
UNFAVORABLE INFLUENCES ARE SOMEWHAT OFFSET BY A POLEWARD OUTFLOW 
CHANNEL. ALONG-TRACK SSTS REMAIN FAVORABLE AT 27C. TC 17P HAS BEGUN 
TO INGEST DRY AIR FROM THE WEST, DIMINISHING ITS CONVECTIVE 
SIGNATURE BUT NOT YET LEADING TO WEAKENING. TC IRIS IS TRACKING 
ALONG THE SOUTHWEST PERIPHERY OF THE NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE EXTENSION 
TO THE NORTHEAST, AND IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO THE SOUTHEAST ON 
THIS TRACK UNTIL TAU 36 AND GRADUALLY WEAKEN DUE TO DRY AIR 
ENTRAINMENT AND INCREASING VWS. AT TAU 36, A DEEP TROUGH MOVES INTO 
THE AREA FROM THE WEST, INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR FURTHER, AND 
THE NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTHEAST RECEDES, LEADING TO A 
QUASISTATIONARY PERIOD. AS TC 17P DEGRADES, IT WILL BECOME SUBJECT 
TO MID-LAYER AND SHALLOW STEERING FLOW FROM THE TROUGH, AND TC 17P 
IS FORECAST TO MOVE TO THE NORTHWEST. AVAILABLE NUMERICAL MODEL 
GUIDANCE IS SIGNIFICANTLY SPREAD AND TRIFURCATED AFTER TAU 24, WITH 
COAMPS AND NAVGEM SOLUTIONS TRACKING TC 17P OVER OCEAN TO THE EAST, 
MANY MODELS INCLUDING GFS AND ECMWF EXECUTING A LOOP AND MOVING TC 
17P EITHER NORTH OR NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD, AND THE WESTERN OUTLIER 
HWRF PREDICTING A LOOP AND THEN WESTWARD TRACK. IN LIGHT OF THIS, 
THERE IS OVERALL LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST THAT IS 
LAID SLIGHTLY SLOWER AND WESTWARD OF MODEL CONSENSUS TO OFFSET THE 
EASTWARD OUTLYING TRACKS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 040000Z 
IS 14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 040900Z, 041500Z, 042100Z AND 050300Z.//

REMARKS:
040900Z POSITION NEAR 19.3S 151.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 17P (IRIS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 330 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED EASTWARD AT 05 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MSI SHOWS A MOSTLY-EXPOSED LLC WITH
THE CENTRAL CONVECTION CONTINUING TO BE DISPLACED SOUTHWARD. THE
INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE BASED ON THE VISIBLE
LLC IN THE MSI LOOP THAT LINED UP WELL WITH A DEFINED LOW
REFLECTIVITY CIRCULATION FEATURE IN THE 040435Z SSMIS MICROWAVE PASS.
 THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON AN OVERALL ASSESSMENT OF AGENCY
DVORAK ESTIMATES AND REFLECTS THE SUSTAINED CONVECTIVE SIGNATURE OF
TC 17P. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT THE CYCLONE IS IN AN AREA
OF MODERATE (15-20 KNOT) VWS THAT IS MOSTLY OFFSET BY AN EXCELLENT
POLEWARD OUTFLOW. ALONG-TRACK SSTS AT 29C ARE ALSO CONDUCIVE. THE
SYSTEM IS TRACKING SLOWLY INTO A COL ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY
OF A WEAKENING NER TO THE NORTHEAST. IRIS IS EXPECTED TO ENTER INTO A
 QUASI-STATIONARY STATE IN THE COL BETWEEN THE NER AND THE STR TO THE
SOUTHWEST. DURING THIS PHASE, THE CYCLONE WILL SLOWLY RECURVE
NORTHWESTWARD AS THE STR EVENTUALLY DOMINATES AS THE PRIMARY STEERING
MECHANISM. TC 17P IS FORECAST TO GRADUALLY WEAKEN AS VWS INCREASES.
ADDITIONALLY, A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH APPROACHING FROM THE SOUTHWEST
WILL CAUSE SUBSIDENCE AND STEADILY ERODE THE ASSOCIATED CONVECTION.
AVAILABLE NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS SIGNIFICANTLY SPREAD AND
TRIFURCATED WITH COAMPS AND NAVGEM SOLUTIONS TRACKING TC 17P
EASTWARD, SEVERAL MODELS INCLUDING GFS AND ECMWF RECURVING IT
EQUATORWARD, AND THE HWRF PREDICTING A WESTWARD TRACK. IN VIEW OF
THIS, THERE IS OVERALL LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST THAT
IS LAID SLIGHTLY SLOWER AND WESTWARD OF MODEL CONSENSUS TO OFFSET 
THE EASTWARD OUTLYING TRACKS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 
040600Z IS 14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 041500Z, 042100Z, 050300Z, AND

REMARKS:
042100Z POSITION NEAR 19.7S 151.8E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 17P (IRIS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 376 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 03
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED EIR SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS 
A PARTLY-EXPOSED LLCC PEEKING OUT OF THE CONVECTIVE DENSE OVERCAST 
REGION THAT HAS REFORMED OVER 17P IN THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE INITIAL 
POSITION IS BASED ON EXTRAPOLATION FROM LOW CLOUD BANDS
FEEDING INTO THE CLOUD COVERED LLCC OBSERVED IN EIR IMAGERY. THIS 
IS SUPPORTED BY 041425Z AMSR2 91 GHZ AND 36 GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGES 
SHOWING A SLIGHTLY ELONGATED CIRCULATION CENTER WITH DEEP 
CONVECTION CONCENTRATED IN THE POLEWARD SEMI-CIRCLE. THE INITIAL 
INTENSITY IS BASED ON MULTI-AGENCY DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY 
ESTIMATES OF T3.0 (45 KNOTS) THAT ARE VALIDATED BY A 041600Z 
OBSERVATION FROM CREAL REEF REPORTING 42 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL 
ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT THE CYCLONE IS NOW IN AN AREA OF 
UNFAVORABLE (20-30 KNOTS) NORTHERLY VWS THAT IS OFFSET BY EXCELLENT 
POLEWARD OUTFLOW. ALONG-TRACK SSTS REMAIN CONDUCIVE (27 TO 28 
CELSIUS). THE SYSTEM IS TRACKING SLOWLY SOUTHEASTWARD ALONG THE 
PERIPHERY OF A NER EXTENSION TO THE NORTHEAST AND IS EXPECTED TO 
GRADUALLY WEAKEN DUE TO THE UNFAVORABLE VWS. AS 17P IS SHEARED FROM 
THE TOP DOWN, IT IS EXPECTED TO ENTER INTO A QUASI-STATIONARY (QS) 
STATE BEFORE RECURVING NORTHWESTWARD DUE TO THE STEERING INFLUENCE 
OF A 700 MB STR TO THE SOUTHWEST, WHICH WILL BECOME THE PRIMARY 
STEERING MECHANISM. AVAILABLE NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE HAS COME 
INTO BETTER AGREEMENT ON THE EVENTUAL EQUATORWARD U-TURN, BUT WITH 
NOTABLE DIFFERENCES IN TRACK SPEED. FOR THIS REASON THERE IS 
OVERALL LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST, WHICH IS LAID 
JUST SLIGHTLY SLOWER AND WESTWARD OF MODEL CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM 
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 041800Z IS 14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT

06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL (MSI) 
SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS A FULLY EXPOSED LLCC TO THE NORTH OF 
STRUGGLING, PERIODICALLY FLARING CONVECTION. THE INITIAL POSITION 
IS BASED ON THE LLCC EVIDENT IN THE MSI LOOP AND THE PGTW 00Z FIX 
POSITION. A 042325Z AMSU-B 89GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE REVEALS DEEP 
CONVECTION ISOLATED TO THE SOUTH OF THE LLCC. THE INITIAL INTENSITY 
IS BASED ON OBSERVATIONS OVER 100NM TO THE SOUTHWEST BETWEEN 34-37 
KTS, AS WELL AS A 042127Z SATCON ESTIMATE OF 42 KTS. THIS ESTIMATE 
IS SLIGHTLY ABOVE THE PGTW AND KNES 00Z FIXES OF CURRENT INTENSITY 
(CI) T2.5 (35 KTS) BUT BELOW THE ABRF CI OF T3.0 (45 KTS). A 
042326Z BULLSEYE ASCAT PASS REVEALS A PATCH OF 35-39 KT WINDS TO 
THE SOUTHWEST, AND A BROAD SWATH OF 30-34 KT WINDS SURROUNDING TC 
17P WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE NORTHWEST SECTOR. UPPER LEVEL 
ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT THE CYCLONE IS NOW IN AN AREA OF 
UNFAVORABLE (20-30 KNOTS) NORTHERLY VWS, WHICH IS PARTIALLY OFFSET 
BY EXCELLENT POLEWARD OUTFLOW. ALONG-TRACK SSTS REMAIN CONDUCIVE 
(27 TO 28 CELSIUS). THE SYSTEM IS TRACKING SLOWLY EAST-
NORTHEASTWARD ALONG THE PERIPHERY OF A NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE 
EXTENSION TO THE NORTHEAST, WHICH IS RECEDING AS A MIDLEVEL TROUGH 
MOVES THROUGH THE AREA. TC 17P IS EXPECTED TO GRADUALLY WEAKEN DUE 
TO THE UNFAVORABLE VWS AND AN UPPER LEVEL LOW THAT WILL LIMIT 
CONVECTION, DROPPING BELOW 35 KTS AFTER 36 HOURS. AS TC 17P IS 
SHEARED FROM THE TOP DOWN, IT IS EXPECTED TO TURN NORTHWESTWARD 
UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A 700 MB STR TO THE SOUTHWEST, 
WHICH WILL BECOME THE PRIMARY STEERING MECHANISM. AVAILABLE 
NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE HAS CONVERGED OVER RECENT RUNS TO AGREE 
UPON A GENERAL U-TURN AND THEN NORTH OR NORTHWESTWARD SOLUTION, BUT 
WITH REMAINING DIFFERENCES IN HOW TIGHTLY TC 17P TURNS NORTHWARD 
AND THE TRACK SPEED. THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK IS SLIGHTLY EASTWARD 
OF MODEL CONSENSUS AND FOR THIS REASON TGERE IS OVERALL LOW

052100Z POSITION NEAR 19.9S 153.3E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 17P (IRIS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 451 NM NORTH
OF BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD AT 04
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED (EIR) 
SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS AN EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER 
WITH DEEP CONVECTION SHEARED APPROXIMATELY 30 NM TO THE SOUTHEAST. 
THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH MODERATE CONFIDENCE DUE TO THE 
SLIGHTLY ELONGATED AND OBSCURED NATURE OF THE LLCC OBSERVED IN THE 
EIR LOOP. THIS POSITION IS SUPPORTED BY A 051741Z SSMI/S 91 GHZ 
MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWING CLOUD BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE CIRCULATION 
CENTER. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 45 KNOTS IS BASED ON A 051800Z 
DVORAK ESTIMATE FROM PGTW USING THE SHEAR METHOD. ENVIRONMENTAL 
ANALYSIS SHOWS MODERATE NORTHWESTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (20 TO 25 
KNOTS) WHICH IS OFFSET BY EXCELLENT POLEWARD OUTFLOW. SEA SURFACE 
TEMPERATURES REMAIN FAVORABLE, BETWEEN 27 AND 28 DEGREES CELSIUS. 
TC 17P IS CURRENTLY IN ITS QUASI-STATIONARY (QS) STATE DUE TO A 
WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT. AS THE SYSTEM GRADUALLY WEAKENS DUE TO 
VWS, IT IS EXPECTED TO TRACK TO THE NORTHWEST UNDER THE INFLUENCE 
OF THE MID LEVEL STEERING FLOW BEFORE DISSIPATING BY TAU 72. 
DYNAMIC MODEL TRACK GUIDANCE REMAINS IN GOOD AGREEMENT ON POSITION 
BUT WITH SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN SPEED AS TC 17P EXITS ITS QS 
STATE. THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK IS LAID JUST FASTER THAN CONSENSUS, 
FAVORING THE GFS AND ECMWF SOLUTIONS. DUE TO THE UNCERTAINTY IN 
TRACK SPEED, THERE IS OVERALL LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST 
TRACK AND INTENSITY. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 051800Z IS 
16 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 060300Z, 060900Z, 061500Z AND 062100Z.//

REMARKS:
060300Z POSITION NEAR 19.3S 153.6E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 17P (IRIS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 476 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED NORTHEASTWARD AT 05
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY REVEALS AN EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER WITH
CONVECTION SHEARED APPROXIMATELY 90 NM TO THE SOUTHEAST. THE INITIAL
POSITION IS PLACED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE DUE TO THE EXPOSED LLCC.
THIS POSITION IS SUPPORTED BY A 060026Z GMI 89 GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE
SHOWING BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE CENTER AND DEEP CONVECTION
ISOLATED TO THE SOUTHEAST. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 45 KNOTS IS
BASED ON THE 060000Z PGTW DVORAK FIX OF CURRENT INTENSITY (CI) T3.0
(45 KTS), ABOVE THE KNES FIX OF CI T2.5 (35 KTS), AND SUPPORTED BY A
38 KT OBSERVATION 70NM TO THE SOUTHEAST IN THE VICINITY OF THE
CONVECTION. ADDITIONALLY, THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS IN CLOSE
AGREEMENT WITH A 051944Z SATCON ESTIMATE OF 42 KTS. ENVIRONMENTAL
ANALYSIS SHOWS MODERATE TO HIGH NORTHWESTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
(20 TO 30 KNOTS) WHICH IS OFFSET BY EXCELLENT POLEWARD OUTFLOW. SEA
SURFACE TEMPERATURES REMAIN FAVORABLE, BETWEEN 27 AND 28 DEGREES
CELSIUS. TC 17P IS CURRENTLY TRACKING TO THE NORTHEAST IN AN
UNCERTAIN STEERING ENVIRONMENT BETWEEN A NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO
THE NORTH AND A MIDLEVEL RIDGE TO THE SOUTHWEST. TC 17P IS EXPECTED
TO TRACK TO THE NORTHWEST UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE MID LEVEL
STEERING FLOW AND GRADUALLY WEAKEN UNDER PERSISTENT MODERATE TO HIGH
VWS AND A FORMING UPPER LEVEL LOW, WHICH WILL SUPPRESS CONVECTION,
LEADING TO DISSIPATION AT 72 HOURS. OVER THE PAST SEVERAL RUNS,
NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE HAS INDICATED AN IMMEDIATE TURN TOWARDS THE
NORTHWEST THAT HAS NOT YET MATERIALIZED. AS A RESULT, THE JTWC
FORECAST TRACK IS LAID TO THE RIGHT OF AND SLOWER THAN MODEL
CONSENSUS, AS THE TIMING WHEN TC 17P WILL MAKE THE EXPECTED TURN TO
THE NORTHWEST IS UNCLEAR. DUE TO THE UNCERTAINTY IN TRACK SPEED AND
WHEN TC 17P WILL TURN TO THE NORTHWEST, THERE IS OVERALL LOW
CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK AND INTENSITY. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 060000Z IS 16 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT

WITH THE REMAINING CONVECTION SHEARED 150NM TO THE SOUTHEAST. THE
INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE BASED ON A 060540Z
HIMAWARI VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGE WHICH SHOWS THE LLCC. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY OF 40 KNOTS IS BASED ON A 060525Z SATCON ESTIMATE OF 40
KNOTS. THIS IS HEDGED SLIGHTLY ABOVE A PGTW DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY
(CI) ESTIMATE OF T2.5 (35 KNOTS) WHICH IS UNDERESTIMATING WIND SPEEDS

SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS AN EXPOSED, DEFINED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER WITH NO SIGNIFICANT DEEP CONVECTION. A 061728Z SSMIS 37GHZ
IMAGE INDICATES LIMITED, SHALLOW CONVECTIVE BANDING OVER THE
SOUTHWEST QUADRANT, ASSOCIATED WITH A BAND OF 25-30 KNOT GRADIENT
WINDS, AND WEAK, FRAGMENTED BANDING ELSEWHERE. SURFACE OBSERVATIONS
FROM MARION REEF VERIFY THE 25-30 KNOT SOUTH-SOUTHEASTERLY WINDS
WHILE LIHOU REEF AND A RECENT SHIP OBSERVATION SUPPORT MUCH WEAKER
WINDS (10-15 KNOTS) OVER THE NORTHERN AND EASTERN SEMICIRCLES. THE
INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 30 KNOTS BASED ON THE OVERALL WIND
STRUCTURE AS DEPICTED IN RECENT ASCAT. TC 17P IS FORECAST TO TRACK
NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD WHILE SLOWLY
WEAKENING. AS SHOWN IN THE NAVGEM MODEL, THERE IS SOME POTENTIAL FOR
THE SYSTEM TO REGENERATE IN 3-4 DAYS AS IT TRACKS EQUATORWARD OVER
WARMER WATER. OVERALL, THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE EXACT FORECAST
TRACK DUE TO THE SHALLOW NATURE OF THE SYSTEM AND THE LOW-LEVEL
STEERING INFLUENCE (SUBTROPICAL RIDGE POSITIONED TO THE WEST). THIS
IS THE FINAL WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM BY THE JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN
PEARL HARBOR HI. THE SYSTEM WILL BE CLOSELY MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF
REGENERATION. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 061800Z IS 12
FEET.//
