REMARKS:
150900Z POSITION NEAR 8.9N 119.0E.
TROPICAL DEPRESSION 02W (SANBA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 70 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHEAST OF PUERTO PRINCESA, PHILIPPINES, HAS TRACKED NORTH-
NORTHWESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED ENHANCED 
MULTI-SPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS A FULLY EXPOSED BROAD LLC AND 
NO ASSOCIATED CONVECTION IN THE VICINITY. A 150531Z GPM 89GHZ 
MICROWAVE IMAGE INDICATES THAT THE MAJORITY OF DEEP CONVECTION, 
WHICH HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN SHEARED OVER 100NM TO THE NORTHWEST, HAS 
DISSIPATED. THE INITIAL POSITION IS PLACED WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE 
BASED ON THE EXPOSED LLC IN THE MULTI-SPECTRAL LOOP. THE INITIAL 
INTENSITY OF 20 KNOTS IS BASED ON A 150158Z ASCAT PASS DEPICTING AN 
ISOLATED AREA OF 20 KNOT WINDS TO THE NORTH OF THE LLC, AND 
OTHERWISE MOSTLY 15 KT WINDS SURROUNDING THE DISTURBANCE. PGTW HAS 
FIXED THE SYSTEM AS TOO WEAK SINCE 150000Z AND RJTD HAS STOPPED 
ISSUING FIXES ON THE SYSTEM, FURTHER SUPPORTING THE 20 KNOT 
INTENSITY ESTIMATE. ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS REVEALS THE SYSTEM IS IN 
AN AREA OF MODERATE TO STRONG (20-25 KNOT) SOUTHEASTERLY VERTICAL 
WIND SHEAR, WHICH HAS CONTRIBUTED TO THE PROGRESSIVE DISORGANIZATION 
OF TD 02W. SSTS IN THE SULU SEA ARE MARGINALLY FAVORABLE AT 27 
DEGREES CELSIUS, BUT SSTS DECREASE TO BELOW 26 DEGREES CELSIUS IN 
THE SOUTH CHINA SEA. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS SHOWS THAT DIVERGENCE 
ALOFT HAS ABATED SIGNIFICANTLY, STIFLING ANY REMAINING CONVECTION 
ASSOCIATED WITH THE SYSTEM. TD 02W IS CURRENTLY TRACKING ALONG THE 
SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF A BUILDING EXTENSION OF THE STR TO THE 
NORTHEAST. TD SANBA IS FORECAST TO TRACK WEST-NORTHWESTWARD CLOSE TO 
PUERTO PRINCESA, PHILIPPINES, AND ONWARD INTO THE SOUTH CHINA SEA 
AND IS NOT EXPECTED TO REINTENSIFY. DUE TO THE CHANGES IN STORM 
MOTION AND THE WEAK NATURE OF THE SYSTEM, THERE IS OVERALL A LOW 
CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK. 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 150600Z IS 10 FEET.//
