REMARKS:
030900Z POSITION NEAR 38.1N 132.6E.
03OCT19. TROPICAL STORM 19W (MITAG), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 460 NM
WEST-SOUTHWEST OF MISAWA, JAPAN, HAS TRACKED EAST-NORTHEASTWARD
AT 18 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED MULTISPECTRAL
SATELLITE IMAGERY (MSI) REVEALS AN ELONGATED AND POORLY DEFINED LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER WITH CONVECTION SHEARED TO THE NORTHEAST.
THE SHEARED CONVECTION AND INITIAL FRONTAL FEATURES INDICATE THAT THE
SYSTEM IS UNDERGOING EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT). THE INITIAL 
POSITION IS PLACED WITH FAIR CONFIDENCE DUE TO THE ELONGATED NATURE
OF THE LLCC BASED ON THE MSI LOOP AND A 030615Z SSMI 85 GHZ MICROWAVE
IMAGE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 40 KNOTS IS BASED ON SURFACE
OBSERVATIONS IN THE VICINITY OF THE SYSTEM. THE MID-LATITUDE JET IS
ENHANCING POLEWARD OUTFLOW, CREATING A STRONG OUTFLOW CHANNEL. THE
GOOD OUTFLOW IS BEING OFFSET BY STRONG (30-40 KT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
AND COOL SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (22-24  DEGREES CELSIUS). TS 19W IS
TRACKING INTO THE MID-LATITUDE WESTERLIES ALONG THE NORTHWESTERN
PERIPHERY OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) LOCATED TO THE SOUTHEAST. TS
19W WILL CONTINUE ALONG AN EAST-NORTHEASTWARD TRACK. THE SYSTEM 
WILL CONTINUE ETT AS IT MOVES DEEPER INTO THE MID-LATITUDE
WESTERLIES. ETT SHOULD COMPLETE AROUND TAU 12 AS THE SYSTEM TRACKS
ACROSS THE SEA OF JAPAN. TS 19W WILL MAKE LANDFALL OVER NORTHERN
HONSHU AROUND TAU 12, TRACKING SOUTH OF MISAWA. THE 36 HOUR FORECAST
FOLLOWS THE DETERIORATING CIRCULATION UNTIL IT PASSES OVER JAPAN INTO
THE PACIFIC OCEAN. FOR THE DURATION OF THE FORECAST, THE INTENSITY
WILL MAINTAIN AT 40 KNOTS. THERE IS OVERALL FAIR CONFIDENCE IN 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 030600Z IS 17 FEET.//
