REMARKS:
262100Z POSITION NEAR 14.9S 168.8E.
26NOV19. TROPICAL CYCLONE 01P (RITA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 177 NM
NORTH OF PORT VILA, VANUATU, HAS TRACKED SOUTHWESTWARD AT 07 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
DEPICTS AN EXPOSED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER WITH NO CONVECTION
ASSOCIATED WITH THE SYSTEM. THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH FAIR
CONFIDENCE BASED ON THIS EXPOSED LLCC. INITIAL INTENSITY OF 35 KNOTS
IS BASED ON THE PGTW/KNES DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 2.0
(30 KNOTS). ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT THE SYSTEM IS
TRANSITING AN INCREASINGLY UNFAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT AS DRY AIR WRAPS
INTO THE SYSTEM WITH MARGINAL VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (15-25KTS) AND VERY
MINIMAL UPPER-LEVEL OUTFLOW. AS 01P TRACKS SLOWLY SOUTHWEST IT WILL
FURTHER WEAKEN AND DISSIPATE OVER WATER BY TAU 12. 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 261800Z IS 11 FEET.//
