REMARKS:
240900Z POSITION NEAR 16.7S 137.0E.
24FEB20. TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 19P (ESTHER), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 
454 NM SOUTHEAST OF DARWIN, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 09
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE 
IMAGERY, RADAR IMAGERY AND A 240453Z ATMS 88GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE 
DEPICT DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING INTO A WELL-DEFINED LOW-
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. OVERALL, CONVECTIVE STRUCTURE HAS 
CONSOLIDATED AS THE SYSTEM TRACKED OVER LAND, THEREFORE, THE INITIAL 
INTENSITY HAS BEEN INCREASED SLIGHTLY TO 50 KNOTS. TC 19P IS 
FORECAST TO TRACK GENERALLY WESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF 
A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE WHILE SLOWLY WEAKENING THROUGH TAU 48. OVERALL, 
GLOBAL MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS IN TIGHT AGREEMENT LENDING HIGH 
CONFIDENCE TO THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK. THIS SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO 
MAINTAIN TROPICAL DEPRESSION STRENGTH AS IT TRACKS ACROSS NORTHERN 
AUSTRALIA AND IS EXPECTED TO TRACK BACK OVER WATER FROM TAU 96 TO 
TAU 108. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO REGENERATE QUICKLY OVER WATER. 
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.//
