Tropical Cyclone Formation

Tropical Cyclone Genesis is the technical term for the process of storm formation that leads ultimately to what are called hurricanes, typhoons, or tropical cyclones in various parts of the world.

This occurs when, in the Northern Hemisphere, the Intertropical Convergence Zone, or ITCZ, shifts northward out of the doldrums and atmospheric conditions become favorable for tropical cyclone formation after about the middle of May.

A series of low-pressure ripples develops within the ITCZ. These are known as tropical waves and progress from east to west. In the late season, they typically shift their movement toward the west-nothwest, or even northwest, after crossing 45° or 50° W longitude. Full Article

21SEP19. TROPICAL STORM 18W (TAPAH), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 397 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF SASEBO, JAPAN, HAS TRACKED NORTHWARD AT 12 KNOTS 
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 210600Z

RMKS//
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
   TROPICAL STORM (TS) 18W (TAPAH), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 397 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF SASEBO, JAPAN, HAS TRACKED NORTHWARD AT 12
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE 
IMAGERY REVEALS A CONSOLIDATING SYSTEM WITH A LARGE, 45NM DIAMETER 
RAGGED EYE AND EXTENSIVE SPIRAL BANDING OVER THE EASTERN SEMICIRCLE. 
A 21/0147Z ASCAT-B IMAGE SHOWS A LARGE, OBLONG CENTER WITH A SWATH 
OF 50-60 KNOT WINDS DISPLACED OVER THE EASTERN SEMICIRCLE. SURFACE 
OBSERVATIONS FROM OKINAWA INDICATE SUSTAINED 40-50 KNOT WINDS WITH 
GUSTS OF 70-80 KNOTS WITHIN THE SPIRAL BANDING. THERE IS GOOD 
CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT POSITION BASED ON THE EYE FEATURE AND 
HOURLY RADAR FIXES. THE 21/0423Z AMSR2 IMAGE SHOWS IMPROVED DEEP 
CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A DEFINED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION 
CENTER. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS INCREASED SLIGHTLY TO 60 KNOTS, 
WHICH IS CONSISTENT WITH THE PGTW DVORAK ESTIMATE OF T4.0 (65 KNOTS) 
AND RECENT SURFACE OBSERVATIONS. THE ENVIRONMENT, WITH MODERATE (10-
15 KT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS), GOOD EQUATORWARD AND POLEWARD 
OUTFLOW, AND WARM (27-28 CELSIUS) SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE (SST), IS 
SUPPORTIVE OVERALL, HOWEVER, SOME DRY AIR ENTRAINING INTO AND 
SUPPRESSING CONVECTION ON THE WESTERN HALF OF THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED 
TO LIMIT FURTHER INTENSIFICATION. TS 18W IS TRACKING POLEWARD ALONG 
THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR).
3. FORECAST REASONING.
   A. THERE IS NO CHANGE TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY SINCE THE 
PREVIOUS PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE. THE 34-KNOT AND 50-KNOT WIND 
RADII HAVE BEEN ADJUSTED BASED ON A DETAILED ANALYSIS OF RECENT 
ASCAT IMAGERY. 
   B. AROUND TAU 24, TS 18W WILL HAVE ROUNDED THE STR AXIS AND BEGIN 
TURNING NORTHEASTWARD. THERE IS A BRIEF PERIOD WHERE THE ENVIRONMENT 
IS MARGINALLY SUPPORTIVE BEFORE STRONG VWS, LAND INTERACTION, AND 
COOL SST BEGIN TO CAUSE GRADUAL WEAKENING. BY TAU 24, TS 18W WILL 
BEGIN EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT) AS IT INTERACTS WITH THE 
BAROCLINIC ZONE AND MIDLATITUDE WESTERLIES. AFTER TAU 36, TS 18W 
WILL ACCELERATE NORTHEASTWARD AND WILL BECOME EMBEDDED IN THE STRONG 
MIDLATITUDE WESTERLIES OVER THE SEA OF JAPAN, COMPLETING ETT BY TAU 
48 WITH CLEAR FRONTAL CHARACTERISTICS. AFTER COMPLETING ETT, A GALE-
FORCE COLD CORE LOW WILL REMAIN AND TRACK NORTH OF MISAWA AB. 
NUMERICAL GUIDANCE IS IN TIGHT AGREEMENT THROUGH TAU 48. AFTER TAU 
48, NUMERICAL GUIDANCE DIVERGES WITH SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN 
TRACK SPEED. OVERALL, THERE IS GOOD CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK 
FORECAST.//
