15P(ANA). WARNING 7.FORECAST TO ACCELERATE SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD TO  SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGH 72H ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A  SUBTROPICAL RIDGE WITH INCREASING WIND SHEAR-30-35 KNOTS. ADDITIONALLY,  SEA SURFACE TEMPS VALUES ARE EXPECTED TO DECREASE TO 24-22C AFTER 48H, WHICH  WILL LEAD TO MORE RAPID WEAKENING INTENSITY FALLING DOWN BELOW 35KNOTS BY 72H.

ADDITIONALLY, SEA SURFACE TEMPS VALUES ARE EXPECTED TO DECREASE TO 24-22C AFTER 48H, WHICH WILL LEAD TO MORE RAPID WEAKENING INTENSITY FALLING DOWN BELOW 35KNOTS BY 72H.

17P(LUCAS). WARNING 3. TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF A NEAR  EQUATORIAL RIDGE AND THROUGH A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH VERY WARM  (29-30 CELSIUS) SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES, LOW (10-15 KTS) VERTICAL  WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND ROBUST POLEWARD OUTFLOW ALOFT. THESE HIGHLY  FAVORABLE CONDITIONS WILL LEAD TO RAPID INTENSIFICATION IN THE NEAR  TERM AND RESULT IN AN INTENSITY OF 80 KNOTS/US CATEGORY 1 BY 24H. THEREAFTER,  INCREASING VWS WILL LEAD TO A GRADUAL WEAKENING TREND AS THE SYSTEM  BEGINS A GENERALLY SOUTHEASTWARD TO WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK ALONG A  BUILDING SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) TO THE EAST. AFTER 48H, TC LUCAS WILL BEGIN A GENERALLY SOUTHWARD TRACK AS IT BEGINS TO ROUND THE STR AXIS. HIGH (25-30 KTS) VWS WILL CONTINUE TO WEAKEN THE SYSTEM DURING THIS TIME. BY 96H THE SYSTEM WILL ROUND THE STR AXIS AND BEGIN TO DISSIPATE OVER WATER DUE TO HIGH VWS AND COOLING SST WHICH WILL LEAD TO INTENSITY FALLING DOWN BELOW 35KNOTS BY 120H.

16P. WARNING 4. ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS ARE  FORECAST TO REMAIN FAVORABLE THROUGH 12H, HOWEVER, CONDITIONS  WILL DEGRADE RAPIDLY AFTER THIS TIME DUE TO STRONG VERTICAL WIND  SHEAR AND INTERACTION WITH TC 15P. TC 16P IS EXPECTED TO UNDERGO  BINARY INTERACTION WITH TC 15P, WHICH IS CURRENTLY LOCATED ABOUT  775KM SSE. TC 16P IS FORECAST TO TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD THROUGH 12H UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE POSITIONED  TO THE NORTHEAST. HOWEVER, AFTER 12H, TC 16P WILL ACCELERATE  SOUTH-SOUTHEASTWARD WITHIN THE EASTERN PERIPHERY OF TC 15P. BY 36H,TC 16P WILL APPROACH TC 15P WITHIN ABOUT 280KM AS IT RAPIDLY  WEAKENS. BY 48H, TC 16P WILL DISSIPATE AND BECOME ABSORBED INTO  TC 15P.

18S. WARNING 1.TC 18S IS TRACKING OVER LAND  THROUGH WESTERN AUSTRALIA, HOWEVER THE ENVIRONMENT IS  OVERALL MARGINALLY FAVORABLE WITH LOW (10-15 KTS)  VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) AND MODERATE UPPER LEVEL  OUTFLOW ALOFT. THE PRIMARY STEERING MECHANISM IS A  SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) POSITIONED TO THE SOUTHWEST, IN  ADDITION TO A SECONDARY STR TO THE EAST. TC 18S IS  FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING OVER WESTERN AUSTRALIA AND  INTENSIFY ONLY MINIMALLY TO 35 KNOTS BY 48H, AT  WHICH POINT IT WILL BE APPROXIMATELY 75 KM SOUTH OF  LEARMONTH, AUSTRALIA. THEREAFTER, THE SYSTEM WILL ENTER  THE WARM WATERS OF THE SOUTH INDIAN OCEAN. WARM (27-28  CELSIUS) SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES, COUPLED WITH CONTINUED  LOW VWS AND MODERATE UPPER LEVEL SUPPORT, WILL LEAD TO  GRADUAL INTENSIFICATION TO A PEAK INTENSITY OF 50 KNOTS BY  72H.THEREAFTER, MODERATE (20-25 KTS) VWS AND COOLER  SEAS WILL LEAD TO A GRADUAL WEAKENING TREND WITH TC 18S  TRACKING SOUTHWARD AFTER 96H ALONG THE WESTERN  PERIPHERY OF THE STEERING STR TO THE EAST.

15P(ANA). NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS IN GOOD AGREEMENT LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK WITH A 295KM SPREAD IN MODEL SOLUTIONS AT 72H.

17P(LUCAS).NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN POOR  AGREEMENT THROUGHOUT THE LATER PORTION OF THE FORECAST PERIOD AS MODEL  TRACKS DIVERGE TO A MAXIMUM 620 KM SPREAD IN SOLUTIONS AT 96H. THE  GFS, ECMWF AND NAVGEM MODEL GUIDANCE PROVIDE TRACKS THAT BRING THE  VORTEX OVER NEW CALEDONIA WHILE THE UKMET AND GALWEM GUIDANCE LIES TO  THE EAST, RESULTING IN A TRACK THAT DOES NOT BRING THE SYSTEM CENTER OVER LAND. THIS HIGH DEGREE OF SPREAD IN MODEL SOLUTIONS LENDS FAIR  CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL PORTION AND LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE EXTENDED  PORTION OF THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK, WHICH IS PLACED ALONG THE MULTI- MODEL CONSENSUS.

16P. THE JTWC FORECAST REMAINS CONSISTENT WITH THE PREVIOUS  FORECAST TRACK AND IS POSITIONED CLOSE TO THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS.  IN LIGHT OF THE HIGHLY UNCERTAIN NATURE OF THE BINARY INTERACTION WITH TC 15P(ANA),  THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK.
