27S(SEROJA). WARNING 12 ISSUED AT 07/09UTC. THE SYSTEM REMAINS COCOONED IN A MARGINALLY  SUPPORTIVE ENVIRONMENT CHARACTERIZED BY MODERATE (15-20 KTS)  EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR(VWS) OFFSET BY DIFFLUENT FLOW ALOFT, THOUGH THERE IS NO  DISTINCT OUTFLOW CHANNEL AT PRESENT. TC 26S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE  TRACKING SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHWEST PERIPHERY OF A DEEP-LAYER  SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) CENTERED OVER WESTERN AUSTRALIA THROUGH 72H,  BEFORE ROUNDING THE RIDGE AXIS NEAR 72H, AND THEN ACCELERATING  SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGH 120H. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO MAKE  LANDFALL SOUTH OF SHARK BAY NEAR 108H. SLOW INTENSIFICATION IS  FORECAST OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS AS THE SYSTEM MOVES SLOWLY INTO A  GENERALLY MORE FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH INCREASED MOISTURE AND  DECREASED VWS. TC 26S IS FORECAST TO RAPIDLY INTENSIFY, FROM 60  KNOTS TO 110 KNOTS/US CAT 3 BETWEEN 48 AND 72H, AS IT APPROACHES THE RIDGE  AXIS, VWS DROPS TO THE 5-10 KNOT RANGE AND A COMPACT POINT SOURCE  DEVELOPS ALOFT OVER TOP OF THE SYSTEM. AFTER ROUNDING THE RIDGE AND  ACCELERATING SOUTHEASTWARD, INCREASING SHEAR, COOLER WATERS AND  ULTIMATELY LAND INTERACTION WILL LEAD TO RAPID WEAKENING THROUGH THE  REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN EXTRA- TROPICAL TRANSITION AFTER LANDFALL AS IT MOVES EAST OF PERTH. AT  THIS POINT, THE BINARY INTERACTION WITH TC 27S IS NOT EXPECTED TO  IMPACT THE TRACK FORECAST, BUT THERE REMAINS A LOW PROBABILITY OF A  SLIGHT WOBBLE FURTHER WEST IN THE MID-RANGE PORTION OF THE FORECAST  AS THE TWO SYSTEMS BEGIN TO INTERACT WITH ONE ANOTHER.

26S(SEROJA). DYNAMIC MODEL  GUIDANCE IS IN OVERALL GOOD AGREEMENT ON THE OVERALL SCENARIO, WITH  SOME DIFFERENCES IN THE TIMING AND SHARPNESS OF THE RECURVE STARTING  TO EMERGE. IN PARTICULAR, THE ECMWF HAS SHIFTED MUCH FURTHER TO THE  WEST IN THE LATEST RUN AND IS NO THE WESTERN-MOST OUTLIER AMONGST  THE CONSENSUS MEMBERS. THE JTWC FORECAST LIES ALONG THE WESTERN EDGE  OF THE GUIDANCE ENVELOPE AS A NOD TOWARDS THE ECMWF, BUT REMAINS  CONSISTENT WITH THE PREVIOUS FORECAST TRACK. OVERALL CONFIDENCE  REMAINS MODERATE IN LIGHT OF THE UNCERTAINTY ASSOCIATED WITH THE  BINARY INTERACTION WITH TC 27S.

26S. WARNING 10 ISSUED AT 07/09UTC. TC 27S IS ENSCONCED IN A MARGINAL ENVIRONMENT WITH A MODERATE (15-20 KTS) EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR(VWS) INDUCED FROM  THE GENERAL EAST-NORTHEASTERLY ENVIRONMENTAL FLOW ALOFT AS WELL AS  OUTFLOW FROM TC 26S TO THE NORTHEAST. WHILE SHEAR IS MODERATE, IT IS  BEING OFFSET SOMEWHAT BY ROBUST POLEWARD OUTFLOW AND WARM SSTS. TC  27S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING SLOWLY NORTHWARD OVER THE NEXT  24 HOURS UNDER GENERALLY WEAK STEERING CONDITIONS, BUT WILL TURN  EAST BY 36H AS IT MOVES WITHIN 650KM OF TC 26S AND IS CAPTURED BY  THE LARGER SYSTEM. ONCE CAPTURED, TC 27S WILL BEGIN BINARY  INTERACTION WITH TC 26S, RAPIDLY ACCELERATING AROUND TO A  SOUTHEASTWARD AND THEN SOUTHWARD TRACK BETWEEN 48H THROUGH 96H. THE TWO SYSTEMS WILL MOVE TO WITHIN 315KM OF ONE ANOTHER BY 72H AND TC 27S WILL BEGIN TO BECOME ABSORBED BY TC 26S, WITH FULL  MERGER EXPECTED NO LATER THAN 96H. CURRENT ENVIRONMENTAL  CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO PERSIST OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS, WITH  LITTLE TO NO CHANGE IN INTENSITY EXPECTED BEFORE 24H. AS THE  SYSTEM BEGINS TO MOVE NORTH OF TC 26S IT WILL MOVE INTO AN AREA OF  IMPROVED OUTFLOW AND DECREASED VWS, ALLOWING FOR A BRIEF PERIOD OF  INTENSIFICATION, TO A PEAK OF 50 KNOTS AT 48H. AFTER THIS POINT,  THE COMBINATION OF INCREASING VWS AND DISRUPTION OF THE VORTEX DUE  TO INTERACTION WITH TC 26S WILL LEAD TO RAPID WEAKENING AFTER 72H.

26S. DYNAMIC MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN POOR AGREEMENT, AND THE JTWC  FORECAST TRACK HAS SHIFTED SLIGHTLY TO THE WEST THAN THE PREVIOUS  FORECAST, CLOSE TO THE EGRR SOLUTION. THE GFS, NAVGEM AND ECMWF  SOLUTIONS MOVED FURTHER EAST IN THE MID-RANGE OF THE FORECAST BUT  ALIGN CLOSELY WITH THE JTWC FORECAST BY 96H. CONFIDENCE IN THE  TRACK REMAINS LOW DUE TO THE UNCERTAINTY ASSOCIATED WITH THE BINARY  INTERACTION WITH TC 26S.
