REMARKS:
150300Z POSITION NEAR 19.4S 34.5E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 18S (IDAI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 340 NM WEST-
NORTHWEST OF EUROPA ISLAND, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 07 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED (EIR) SATELLITE 
IMAGERY AND A 142252Z SSMIS GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS A WEAKENING 
SYSTEM WITH A SMALL, RAGGED EYE. THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED ON 
THE SMALL EYE IN EIR IMAGERY WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL 
INTENSITY IS SET AT 90 KNOTS DUE TO THE DIMINISHING EYEWALL 
CONVECTION AND WARMING CLOUD TOPS. THE UPPER LEVEL ENVIRONMENT 
INDICATES MODERATELY FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS WITH LOW (10-
15 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND WEAKENING POLEWARD OUTFLOW TO THE 
SOUTHEAST. HOWEVER, TC 18S HAS MADE LANDFALL AND WILL CONTINUE TO 
WEAKEN. TC 18S HAS CONTINUED TO TRACK WEST-NORTHWESTWARD ALONG THE 
NORTHEAST PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR). NUMERICAL MODEL 
GUIDANCE REMAINS IN TIGHT AGREEMENT THROUGH TAU 12 BUT DIVERGES 
SLIGHTLY AS THE SYSTEM RAPIDLY WEAKENS OVER LAND. OVERALL, THERE IS 
HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK. TC 18S IS EXPECTED TO 
WEAKEN RAPIDLY DUE TO INCREASING FRICTIONAL EFFECTS AND DRY AIR 
ENTRAINMENT, WITH DISSIPATION EXPECTED BY TAU 36. 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 150000Z IS 22 FEET. REFER TO 
TROPICAL CYCLONE 19S (SAVANNAH) WARNINGS (WTXS31 PGTW) FOR SIX-
HOURLY UPDATES.//
