JTWC Significant Tropical Weather Advisory for the Western North Pacific Ocean (Issued Apr 05 2016 /17Z):

THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 20.4S 177.9W, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 21.6S 175.4W, APPROXIMATELY 25 NM SOUTHWEST OF TONGA. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS AN EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH WEAKENED CONVECTION DISPLACED TO THE EAST OF THE LLCC. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT THE SYSTEM HAS MOVED INTO AN AREA OF HIGH (20-30 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). NUMERICAL FORECAST MODELS INDICATE VWS WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE AS THE SYSTEM BECOMES EMBEDDED IN THE MID-LATITUDE WESTERLY FLOW AND NO LONGER INTENSIFY THE SYSTEM. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 25 TO 30 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 996 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS DOWNGRADED TO MEDIUM.
