REMARKS:
101500Z POSITION NEAR 26.3S 173.1E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 12P (HOLA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 352 NM NORTHEAST
OF KINGSTON ISLAND, HAS TRACKED SOUTHEASTWARD AT 27 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED EIR SHOWS THE CENTRAL CONVECTION GETTING
SHEARED FURTHER SOUTH AND EAST OF THE EXPOSED LLCC AS THE SYSTEM
ACCELERATED POLEWARD INTO THE STRONG MID-LATITUDE WESTERLIES WHICH IS
CHARACTERIZED BY VERY STRONG VWS (GREATER THAN 40 KNOTS) AND COOL
SSTS (26C AND DROPPING). THE INITIAL POSITION AND INTENSITY ARE BASED
WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE ON A 101052Z ASCAT BULLSEYE PASS AND THE PGTW
DVORAK FIX OF T3.5 (55 KNOTS). TC 12P WILL CONTINUE TO ACCELERATE
SOUTHEASTWARD, STEERED BY THE STR TO THE NORTHEAST, AND RAPIDLY
DECAY. CONCURRENTLY, THE CYCLONE WILL UNDERGO ETT BY TAU 12 AND
TRANSFORM INTO A GALE-FORCE COLD CORE LOW WITH AN EXPANSIVE WIND
FIELD BY TAU 36 AS IT SKIRTS THE NORTHEAST COAST OF NEW ZEALAND.
NUMERIC MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS IN TIGHT AGREEMENT, LENDING HIGH
CONFIDENCE TO THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 101200Z IS 27 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 102100Z, 110300Z,

NEW ZEALAND

TROPICAL CYCLONE POTENTIAL BULLETIN ISSUED BY METEOROLOGICAL SERVICE OF NEW ZEALAND AT 0343 UTC 10-Mar-2018

CURRENT STATUS OF CYCLONE ACTIVITY

Tropical Cyclone Hola (971hPa, Category 3) was analysed near 21.4S
169.0E (near the Loyalty Islands of New Caledonia) at 1300 New
Zealand time this afternoon and is moving southeast at 14 knots.

FORECAST TO 1200 UTC SUN 11-MAR-2018
Tropical Cyclone Hola is expected to track southwards and start to
gradually weaken as well as move out of the tropics on Sunday.The
system is expected to undergo extra-tropical transition as it
approaches 30S later on Sunday.

OUTLOOK UNTIL 1200 UTC WED 14-MAR-2018
Cyclone Hola is expected to be extra-tropical and track close to the
upper North Island of New Zealand on Monday. Another low is located
near 6.7S 160.1E near the Solomon Islands at 1300 New Zealand time
today. This low is expected to track into the northern Coral Sea over
the next few days with the risk of it developing into a tropical
cyclone being LOW, but increasing to MODERATE from Tuesday next week.

TROPICAL CYCLONE 08P (FEHI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 145 NM WEST-
SOUTHWEST OF NOUMEA, NEW CALEDONI, HAS TRACKED SOUTH-
SOUTHEASTWARD AT 23 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A PARTIALLY EXPOSED LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH DECREASING AND HIGHLY SHEARED DEEP

CONFIDENCE BASED ON THE EIR IMAGERY LOOP AND IS SUPPORTED BY
291839Z GPM 91 GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE DEPICTING AN EXPOSED LLCC WITH
FLARING DEEP CONVECTION TO THE SOUTH AND EAST OF THE CENTER. THE
INITIAL INTENSITY HAS MAINTAINED AT 40 KNOTS AND IS BASED ON MULTI-
AGENCY DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES RANGING OF T2.0 (30
KNOTS) FROM KNES AND PGTW, HEDGED SLIGHTLY HIGHER BASED ON A
291235Z ASCAT SCATTEROMETER PASS INDICATING 40 KNOT WINDS IN THE
SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE OF THE SYSTEM, AN ADVANCED DVORAK TECHNIQUE
ESTIMATE OF T2.7 (39 KNOTS) AND A MULTI-SENSOR SATELLITE CONSENSUS
ESTIMATE OF 47 KNOTS. ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT TC FEHI
HAS LIKELY COMPLETED TRANSITION TO A SUB-TROPICAL SYSTEM. TC FEHI
CURRENTLY LIES UNDER STRONG (35-40 KNOTS) VWS AND IS TRACKING OVER
ONLY MARGINAL (26-27 DEGREES C) SSTS. AN AMSU THERMAL CROSS SECTION
INDICATES A STRONG WARM ANOMALY IN THE NEAR-SURFACE LAYER, WITH A
WEAK WARM ANOMALY PRESENT IN THE UPPER LEVELS, SUPPORTING THE
ASSESSMENT THAT TC FEHI IS IN FACT SUB-TROPICAL. THE STRONG VWS IS
BEING OFFSET BY STRONG DIVERGENCE ALOFT WHICH IS HELPING TO
MAINTAIN THE INTENSITY AS THE SYSTEM MOVES RAPIDLY SOUTHWARD ALONG
THE WESTERN OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) TO THE EAST, AHEAD OF AN
APPROACHING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH. TC FEHI IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE
TRACKING RAPIDLY SOUTHWARD BEFORE TURNING MORE SOUTHEASTWARD BEYOND
TAU 24. TC FEHI IS FORECAST TO SLOWLY INTENSITY FROM TAU 24 TO 48,
AS IT BEGINS TO UNDERGO EXTRA TROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT) AS IT
INTERACTS WITH THE BAROCLINIC ZONE AHEAD OF THE APPROACHING MID-
LATITUDE TROUGH. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO BECOME COMPLETELY
EMBEDDED IN THE BAROCLINIC ZONE AND COMPLETE ETT BY TAU 48, AS A 50

The forecast path shown above is the Bureau’s best estimate of the cyclone’s future movement and intensity. There is always some uncertainty associated with tropical cyclone forecasting and the grey zone indicates the range of likely tracks of the cyclone centre.

Due to the uncertainty in the future movement, the indicated winds will almost certainly extend to regions outside the rings on this map. The extent of the warning and watch zones reflects this.

This advice is for land-based communities, marine warnings will be issued from New Zealand.

Note: Information in text warning may have been issued at a different time to the latest track data.
Remarks:

EX-TROPICAL CYCLONE JUNE is currently passing to the west of Norfolk Island and is expected to continue moving in a southeast direction for the next 24 hours. The impacts on Norfolk Island are expected to be similar to a Category 1 tropical cyclone.

Damaging winds averaging about 75 kilometres per hour, with gusts to about 110 kilometres per hour, are currently occurring on Norfolk Island and will persist for the next 6 to 12 hours.

Damaging surf, which may lead to localised damage and coastal erosion, and abnormally high tides, which may cause sea water flooding of low lying areas, may occur along the foreshore tonight and during Monday.
