16MAR20. TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23P (GRETEL), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 675
NM NORTH-NORTHWEST OF AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD
AT 25 KNOTS (KTS) OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY (MSI) REVEALS A RAPIDLY EVOLVING SYSTEM WITH FRONTAL
SIGNATURES STARTING TO BECOME EVIDENT. THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC) IS POORLY DEFINED IN THE MSI. EXTRAPOLATION FROM A
152136Z ASCAT-B PASS AND THE MSI IMAGERY WERE USED TO IDENTIFY THE
INITIAL POSITION WITH LOW CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS
SUPPORTED BY THE AFOREMENTIONED ASCAT PASS WHICH SHOWED POCKETS OF 45-
50 KT WINDS IN THE NORTHEAST AND SOUTHWEST QUADRANTS. AN UPPER LEVEL
MIDLATITUDE JET IS PROVIDING ROBUST POLEWARD OUTFLOW AND HIGH (25-30
KT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). AT 27-28 CELSIUS, SEA SURFACE
TEMPERATURE IS SUPPORTIVE. BASED ON THE MSI AND UPPER LEVEL
ENVIRONMENT, TC 23P IS UNDERGOING EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT). TC
23P IS TRACKING ALONG THE POLEWARD PERIPHERY OF EXTENSIVE RIDGING,
CENTERED NEAR 20S, 160W AND EXTENDING WELL TO THE NORTHWEST. OVER THE
NEXT 12 HOURS, THE CURRENT TRACK WILL CONTINUE AND TC 23P WILL
COMPLETE ETT, BECOMING A GALE-FORCE COLD CORE LOW. NUMERICAL MODEL
GUIDANCE IS IN STRONG AGREEMENT, LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE JTWC
TRACK FORECAST. 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 160000Z

SOUTHEASTWARD AT 32 KNOTS (KTS) OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED
ENHANCED INFRARED (EIR) SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS WARMING CLOUD TOP
TEMPERATURES AND CONVECTION BEING DISPLACED POLEWARD AND EAST OF THE
LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION (LLC) DUE TO STRONG VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS).
THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON MID AND UPPER LEVEL TURNING IN THE
EIR IMAGERY WITH FAIR CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS CONSISTENT
WITH DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES RANGING FROM T3.0-T3.5 (45-55 KTS). A
MIDLATITUDE JET TO THE SOUTH IS PROVIDING STRONG POLEWARD OUTFLOW AND
HIGH (25-30 KT) VWS, MAKING THE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT MARGINAL. AT
27-28 CELSIUS, SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE IS SUPPORTIVE. BETWEEN THE
UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT AND SATELLITE IMAGERY, IT APPEARS TC 23P IS IN
THE EARLY STAGES OF EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT). TC 23P IS TRACKING
ALONG THE POLEWARD PERIPHERY OF A NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE, AHEAD OF AN
UPPER LEVEL TROUGH TO THE WEST. THE CURRENT TRACK AND INTENSITY ARE
EXPECTED TO CONTINUE AS THE SYSTEM UNDERGOES ETT. AROUND TAU 24, TC
23P WILL HAVE TRANSITIONED INTO A GALE FORCE, COLD CORE LOW. NUMERICAL
MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN EXCELLENT AGREEMENT, LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE TO
THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 151800Z IS
32 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 160300Z, 160900Z AND 161500Z.//

REMARKS:
151500Z POSITION NEAR 23.7S 166.7E.
15MAR20. TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23P (GRETEL), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 53
NM SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED EAST-
SOUTHEASTWARD AT 25 KNOTS (KTS) OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED
ENHANCED INFRARED (EIR) SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS DIMINISHING DEEP
CONVECTION ON THE EQUATORWARD SIDE OF THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC). HOWEVER, CONVECTION CONTINUES TO WRAP INTO THE LLCC.
BASED ON THE EIR IMAGERY AND AN EXTRAPOLATION OF A 151026Z METOP-B
DIRECT ASCAT IMAGE, THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH FAIR
CONFIDENCE. THE AFOREMENTIONED ASCAT PASS REVEALS 50-54 KT WIND BARBS
WITHIN THE NORTHEAST QUADRANT, LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE INITIAL
INTENSITY OF 55 KTS. THIS INTENSITY IS FURTHER SUPPORTED BY DVORAK
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T3.5 (55 KTS) BY PGTW/KNES AND
SLIGHTLY ABOVE THE PHFO DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATE OF T3.0 (45
KTS). WIND RADII HAVE BEEN UPDATED BASED ON THE RECENT ASCAT DATA.
ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS REVEALS ROBUST POLEWARD OUTFLOW, MODERATE (15-
20 KT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS), AND WARM (28-29 CELSIUS) SEA
SURFACE TEMPERATURES, CONTRIBUTING TO AN OVERALL MARGINALLY FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT. A NEAR EQUATORIAL RIDGE TO THE NORTHEAST IS ACTING AS
THE PRIMARY STEERING MECHANISM. UNDER ITS INFLUENCE, TC 23P WILL
TRACK FIRST SOUTHEASTWARD THEN EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD FOR THE DURATION OF
THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE MARGINAL ENVIRONMENT SHOULD ALLOW TC 23P TO
MAINTAIN ITS CURRENT INTENSITY IN THE NEAR TERM. AFTER TAU 12, HIGH
VWS WILL STEADILY WEAKEN THE SYSTEM. CONCURRENTLY, TC 23P WILL START
TO INTERACT WITH THE BAROCLINIC ZONE LOCATED TO THE SOUTH AND BEGIN
EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT). ETT COMPLETION IS ANTICIPATED BY TAU
48, IF NOT SOONER, AS TC 23P BECOMES A GALE STRENGTH, COLD CORE LOW.
NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST
PERIOD WITH A CROSS-TRACK SPREAD OF 115 NM BY TAU 48. THUS, THERE IS
HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK WHICH IS PLACED NEAR THE
MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 151200Z IS
33 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 152100Z, 160300Z, 160900Z AND 161500Z.//

REMARKS:
150900Z POSITION NEAR 22.5S 164.3E.
15MAR20. TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23P (GRETEL), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY
158 NM WEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT
21 KNOTS (KTS) OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY (MSI) DEPICTS DEEP CONVECTION WRAPPING TIGHTLY
INTO A MOSTLY-OBSCURED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. THIS MSI
COMBINED WITH A 150522Z SSMIS 37 GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE REVEALING A
MICROWAVE EYE FEATURE LEND HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE INITIAL POSITION.
THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 55 KTS IS BASED ON MULTI-AGENCY DVORAK
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T3.0-3.5 (45-55 KTS,
PGTW/KNES/PHFO/NFFN) AND A 150510Z ADVANCED DVORAK TECHNIQUE
ESTIMATE OF T3.3 (51 KTS) WITH GOOD CONFIDENCE. EXCELLENT POLEWARD
OUTFLOW, MODERATE (10-20 KT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS), AND WARM (28-
29 CELSIUS) SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES CONTRIBUTE TO AN OVERALL
MARGINALLY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT FOR CONTINUED DEVELOPMENT. TC 23P
IS TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHWEST PERIPHERY OF A NEAR EQUATORIAL
RIDGE. UNDER ITS STEERING INFLUENCE, THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO
FOLLOW A SOUTHEASTWARD THEN EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD TRACK FOR THE
REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE CURRENT ENVIRONMENT SHOULD
ALLOW TC 23P A BRIEF PERIOD OF SLIGHT INTENSIFICATION TO 60 KTS
PRIOR TO THE ONSET OF STRONG VWS AFTER TAU 12. AT THIS POINT, THE
SYSTEM WILL BEGIN TO WEAKEN SLOWLY AND BEGIN EXTRATROPICAL
TRANSITION (ETT) AS IT INTERACTS WITH THE BAROCLINIC ZONE LOCATED TO
THE SOUTH. ETT COMPLETION IS EXPECTED BY TAU 48 WITH TC 23P BECOMING
A GALE STRENGTH, COLD CORE LOW. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS
EXCELLENT AGREEMENT THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD, WITH A CROSS-
TRACK SPREAD OF 90 NM AT TAU 48. THEREFORE, THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE
IN THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
150600Z IS 36 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 151500Z, 152100Z, 160300Z AND
160900Z.//

REMARKS:
150300Z POSITION NEAR 21.0S 162.5E.
15MAR20. TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23P (GRETEL), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY
271 NM WEST-NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED
SOUTHEASTWARD AT 21 KNOTS (KTS) OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS.  ANIMATED
MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS RAIN BANDS SPIRALING INTO A
MOSTLY OBSCURED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. THE INITIAL POSITION
IS BASED ON A COMBINATION OF THE MSI IMAGERY AND EXTRAPOLATION FROM
A 142222Z ASCAT-A PASS WITH FAIR CONFIDENCE. THE 50 KT INITIAL
INTENSITY IS BASED ON 45-50 KT WINDS IN THE NORTHEAST, SOUTHWEST,
AND SOUTHEAST QUADRANTS IN THE AFOREMENTIONED ASCAT PASS. THIS
INTENSITY IS SLIGHTLY ABOVE, BUT CONSISTENT WITH, THE PGTW DVORAK
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATE OF T3.0 (45 KTS). WITH EXCELLENT POLEWARD
OUTFLOW, MODERATE (15-20 KT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR, AND WARM (28-29
CELSIUS) SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE, THE ENVIRONMENT IS MARGINAL
OVERALL. FOR THE DURATION OF THE FORECAST, TC 23P WILL TRACK ALONG
THE SOUTHWEST PERIPHERY OF A NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE. THE MARGINALLY
FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT SHOULD ALLOW SOME INTENSIFICATION BEFORE
STRONG VERTICAL WIND SHEAR CAUSES SLOW WEAKENING. THE MID-LATITUDE
BAROCLINIC ZONE IS JUST SOUTH OF TC 23P. BY TAU 36, THE SYSTEM WILL
BEGIN EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT) AS IT BEGINS INTERACTING WITH
THE BAROCLINIC ZONE. ETT SHOULD COMPLETE AROUND TAU 60 WITH TC 23P
BECOMING A GALE STRENGTH, COLD CORE LOW. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS
IN STRONG AGREEMENT THROUGH TAU 48. AFTERWARD, THE MODEL SOLUTIONS
BEGIN TO DIVERGE AND THE SPREAD INCREASES TO ABOUT 200 NM BY TAU 72.
BASED ON THE SPREAD, THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK
FORECAST THROUGH TAU 48 AND MODERATE CONFIDENCE AFTERWARD. MAXIMUM
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 150000Z IS 36 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
150900Z, 151500Z, 152100Z AND 160300Z.//

REMARKS:
142100Z POSITION NEAR 19.6S 160.8E.
14MAR20. TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 23P (GRETEL), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY
393 NM WEST-NORTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONIA, HAS TRACKED
SOUTHEASTWARD AT 21 KNOTS (KTS) OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED
ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALS A LARGE 300-400 NM
CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST (CDO). THERE IS FAIR CONFIDENCE IN THE
INITIAL POSITION, PLACED BY EXTRAPOLATING FROM BANDING FEATURES IN A
141649Z SSMIS 89 GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE. THIS POSITION SUGGESTS THE LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) IS SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF THE CENTER OF
THE CDO. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 40 KTS IS CONSISTENT WITH A
141140Z ASCAT-C PASS SHOWING A REGION OF 40 KTS TO THE NORTHEAST OF
A BROAD LLCC. THIS INTENSITY FALLS ON THE HIGH SIDE OF THE PGTW
DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATE OF T2.5 (35 KTS). THE ENVIRONMENT
SURROUNDING TC 23P IS MARGINALLY FAVORABLE WITH EXCELLENT OUTFLOW,
PARTICULARLY ON THE POLEWARD SIDE, MODERATE (15-20 KT) VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR (VWS), AND WARM (29-30 CELSIUS) SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE. FOR
THE DURATION OF THE FORECAST, TC 23P WILL TRACK ALONG THE SOUTHWEST
PERIPHERY OF A NEAR-EQUATORIAL RIDGE. THE MARGINALLY FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT WILL SUPPORT INTENSIFICATION THROUGH TAU 24. AFTERWARD,
STRONG VWS AND COOL SST WILL CAUSE SOME WEAKENING FOR THE REMAINDER
OF THE FORECAST. AROUND TAU 36, THE CYCLONE WILL BEGIN INTERACTING
WITH A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH DIGGING IN FROM THE WEST. THIS TROUGH,
AND THE ACCOMPANYING BAROCLINIC ZONE WILL BEGIN EXTRATROPICAL
TRANSITION (ETT). ETT SHOULD COMPLETE BETWEEN TAU 48 AND 72. WITH
100NM OF SPREAD BY TAU 72, NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN EXCELLENT
AGREEMENT, LENDING HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST.
MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 141800Z IS 34 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS
AT 150300Z, 150900Z, 151500Z AND 152100Z.
