    DISSIPATED AS A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE OVER LAND

    REMARKS:
    211500Z POSITION NEAR 9.7S 47.5E.
    21APR21. TROPICAL CYCLONE 29S (JOBO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 552
    NM NORTH OF ANTANANARIVO, MADAGASCAR, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 04
    KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
    IMAGERY (MSI) VERIFIES THE RAPID CONSOLIDATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF TC
    29S, WITH A WEAK EYE LIKE FEATURE BECOMING EVIDENT IN THE VISIBLE
    AND INFRARED IMAGERY BY THE 211000Z HOUR, AND SUBSEQUENTLY FADING BY
    THE 211200Z HOUR. A 211036Z AMSR2 91GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE EXHIBITED
    DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING AROUND ABOUT 75 PERCENT OF THE LOW
    LEVEL CIRCULATION (LLC), FORMING A CLEAR 12NM MICROWAVE EYE, LENDING
    HIGH CONFIDENCE TO THE INITIAL POSITION. THE SYSTEM. THE INITIAL
    INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 60 KNOTS WITH MODERATE CONFIDENCE. DVORAK-
    BASED ESTIMATES RANGING BETWEEN T3.0-T3.4 ARE LIKELY UNDER-
    ESTIMATING THE INTENSITY DUE TO KNOWN DVORAK TECHNIQUE BIASES WITH
    COMPACT SYSTEMS. THUS, INTENSITY IS INCREASED ABOVE ALL AVAILABLE
    INTENSITY ESTIMATES PRIMARILY DUE TO THE OVERALL STRUCTURE IN THE
    MICROWAVE AND INFRARED IMAGERY. OVERALL, TC JOBO LIES IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT, WITH EXPANDING CIRRUS OUTFLOW TO THE WEST INDICATIVE OF
    AN IMPROVED SHEAR ENVIRONMENT. ROBUST POLEWARD OUTFLOW AND WARM SSTS
    ROUND OUT THE FAVORABLE CONDITIONS ALLOWING FOR THE RECENT PERIOD OF
    RAPID INTENSIFICATION. TC JOBO HAS SLOWED SIGNIFICANTLY OVER THE
    PAST SIX TO TWELVE HOURS AS IT MOVES WESTWARD ALONG THE NORTHERN
    EDGE OF A LOW TO MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) TO THE SOUTH. THE
    RECENT PERIOD OF SLOWING IS ATTRIBUTED TO A WEAKENED GRADIENT
    INDUCED BY THE APPROACH OF A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH WHICH WILL PASS TO
    THE SOUTH. THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TRACKING WEST TO WEST-
    NORTHWEST THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD, AND IS EXPECTED TO MAKE
    LANDFALL ALONG THE CENTRAL COAST OF TANZANIA JUST AFTER TAU 96.
    SHEAR IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN LOW THROUGH TAU 24, ALLOWING FOR FURTHER INTENSIFICATION TO A PEAK OF 75 KNOTS. THEREAFTER, THE PASSAGE OF AN UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH TO THE SOUTH WILL INDUCE INCREASED SHEAR,
    RESULTING IN A FAIRLY RAPID WEAKENING THROUGH TAU 72. AS THE TROUGH
    MOVES OFF TO THE EAST AND SHEAR RELAXES ONCE AGAIN, A BRIEF PERIOD
    OF REINTENSIFICATION IS FORECAST PRIOR TO LANDFALL, FOLLOWED BY
    DISSIPATION ONCE INLAND. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD
    AGREEMENT THROUGH THE FULL RANGE OF THE FORECAST, WITH SPREAD
    INCREASING FROM 65NM AT TAU 48 TO 130NM AT TAU 120, LENDING HIGH
    CONFIDENCE TO THE JTWC FORECAST TRACK.
    MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 211200Z IS 20 FEET. NEXT
    WARNINGS AT 220300Z AND 221500Z.
