and another one at the same time, coming to NZ?
JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR
REMARKS:
102100Z POSITION NEAR 15.3S 166.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 18P (LUSI), located approximately 408 nm
north of Noumea, New Caledonia, has tracked south-southeastward
at 02 knots over the past six hours.
TC 18p is currently located within a weak steering environment between a break of two near equatorial ridges (ner) to the northeast and northwest. TC LUSI is expected to stay in this poor steering environment for the next 24 hours before the ner located to the northeast moves to the west and begins to accelerate the system southeastward through tau 48. After
tau 48, a subtropical ridge is expected to amplify to the east of the system and drive tc 18p poleward through the remainder of the forecast. Steady intensification is expected through tau 72 as the favorable upper-level environment and warm sea surface temperatures persist. After tau 72, increasing vws from an approaching mid-latitude trough and decreasing ocean heat content will start a weakening trend. These factors will also induce extra-tropical transition at tau 96 with completion expected by tau 120. Maximum significant wave height at 101800z is 12 feet.
Next warnings at 110900z and 112100z.

PRIORITY
TROPICAL CYCLONE WATCH
TROPICAL CYCLONE ADVICE NUMBER 26
Issued at 5:03 am CST [5:33 am EST] on Tuesday 11 March 2014

A Cyclone WATCH continues for a developing tropical low for coastal areas from Port McArthur to Burketown, including Mornington Island and Borroloola.

At 3:30 am CST [4:00 am EST] a Tropical Low was estimated to be
75 kilometres north of Kowanyama and 100 kilometres south of Cape Keerweer and moving south at 7 kilometres per hour.

Ex-TROPICAL CYCLONE GILLIAN is located near the Cape York Peninsula west coast.
It is expected move in a southward direction near the coast during Tuesday before taking a more westward turn across the southeast Gulf of Carpentaria later today and during Wednesday.

GALES are not expected during the next 24 hours but may develop during Wednesday as the low redevelops into a tropical cyclone. The system is expected to continue developing slowly until Thursday, when it will take a more northerly track and begin to weaken.

People from Burketown to the QLD/NT border, including Mornington Island and Sweers Island should consider what action they will need to take if the cyclone threat increases.

The Territory Controller advises Northern Territory communities under Watch that now is the time to put together your emergency kit, clear your yards and balconies, and commence home shelter preparations.

Details of Ex-Tropical Cyclone Gillian at 3:30 am CST [4:00 am EST]:
.Centre located near...... 14.8 degrees South 141.6 degrees East
.Location accuracy........ within 55 kilometres
.Recent movement.......... towards the south at 7 kilometres per hour
.Wind gusts near centre... 85 kilometres per hour
.Severity category........ below cyclone intensity
.Central pressure......... 1004 hectoPascals

Please ensure that neighbours have heard and understood this message, particularly new arrivals or those who may not fully understand English.

TC LUCI update

remarks:
120900z position near 19.3s 171.8e.
tropical cyclone (TC) 18p (Lusi), located approximately 395 nm west
of Suva, Fiji, has tracked southeastward at 13 knots over the past
six hours. Animated multispectral satellite imagery depicts a
consolidating system with tightly-curved banding wrapping into a
ragged eye. this improved structure is evident in a 120341z trmm
image, therefore, there is high confidence in the current position.
The current intensity is assessed at 65 knots based on a knes dvorak
estimate of 65 knots, and is also supported by the improved
organization of the low-level circulation center. TC 18p is turning
poleward along the western periphery of a north-south oriented
steering ridge and is forecast to continue tracking southward
through the forecast period. dynamic guidance is in tight agreement,
therefore, there is high confidence in the jtwc forecast track. TC
18p is forecast to intensify to a peak intensity of 75 knots by tau
12 but should then weaken as it encounters increasing vertical wind
shear and cooler sst. The system should begin extra-tropical
transition (ett) near tau 24 as it interacts with the baroclinic
zone, and is expected to complete ett by tau 48 as it gains frontal
characteristics and becomes embedded in strong westerly upper-level
flow.
Maximum significant wave height at 120600z is 20 feet. next
warnings at 122100z and 130900z.//

ex TC Luci about to hit NZ



Cyclone Lusi forecast to bring heavy rain and easterly gales to many places.

Cyclone Lusi is expected to move southwards today (Friday), bringing widespread heavy rain and easterly gales to the North Island from tonight (Friday night), and the upper South Island during Saturday. Rain is forecast to become heavy in Northland this evening, and 80-100mm are likely to have accumulated there by Saturday afternoon. The rain should spread quickly southwards, totalling more than 100mm in Coromandel, Bay of Plenty and Gisborne by Sunday morning.

In the upper South Island, Marlborough and Nelson look set to receive the most intense rainfall, with up to 170mm accumulating in the Nelson ranges from Saturday afternoon till noon Sunday.

Easterly gales will accompany the heavy rain, with severe gusts of 120km/h in Northland, Auckland and Coromandel Peninsula, and 130km/h west of the Kaimai Range.

A Cyclone WARNING continues for coastal and island communities from Elcho
Island to Numbulwar, including Alyangula and Nhulunbuy

A Cyclone WATCH continues for coastal areas from Croker Island to Elcho Island

At 9:30 pm CST Tropical Cyclone Gillian was estimated to be
350 kilometres east southeast of Nhulunbuy and
380 kilometres east northeast of Groote Eylandt
moving northeast at 10 kilometres per hour.

TROPICAL CYCLONE GILLIAN is moving slowly northeast over the Gulf of
Carpentaria. Tropical Cyclone Gillian is expected to turn northwest tonight and
move towards the northeast Arnhem district. It is expected to reach the coast
near Nhulunbuy early Sunday morning. It is then expected to continue moving
west near the north coast of the Top End.

GALES with gusts to 110 kilometres per hour are expected to develop between
Numbulwar and Nhulunbuy, including Alyangula, during Saturday, extending to
Elcho Island on Sunday.

GALES may extend further west to Maningrida on Sunday, then Croker Island on
Sunday night.

Tides will be HIGHER THAN NORMAL between Numbulwar and Nhulunbuy. Large waves
may produce MINOR FLOODING of low-lying coastal areas.

HEAVY RAIN may lead to flash flooding in coastal areas of northeast Arnhem Land
on Saturday night, extending west across the north coast on Sunday and Monday.

The Territory Controller advises residents from Elcho Island to Numbulwar that
now is the time to make final preparations to your home shelter.
