    REMARKS:
    221500Z POSITION NEAR 9.9S 44.8E.
    22APR21. TROPICAL CYCLONE 29S (JOBO), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 558 NM NORTH-NORTHWEST OF ANTANANARIVO, MADAGASCAR, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT
    06 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE CURRENT POSITION IS SITUATED
    NEAR RECENT SATELLITE FIXES FROM PGTW AND FMEE AND WITHIN LOW-LEVEL
    BANDING EVIDENT IN 221318Z SSMIS IMAGERY. THE INTENSITY OF 45 KNOTS
    IS CONSISTENT WITH SUBJECTIVE DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF
    T3.0 (45 KTS) FROM THE SAME REPORTING AGENCIES. TC 29S HAS TRACKED
    STEADILY WESTWARD OVER THE PAST TWELVE HOURS UNDER THE STEERING
    INFLUENCE OF SUBTROPICAL RIDGING TO THE SOUTH. ALTHOUGH SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE HIGH (28-29C), MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (15-20
    KTS) AND CONVERGENT FLOW ALOFT HAVE INDUCED A SLOW WEAKENING TREND.
    TC 29S IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TRACKING WEST-NORTHWESTWARD UNDER THE
    STEERING INFLUENCE OF SUBTROPICAL RIDGING TO THE SOUTH UNTIL IT MAKES
    LANDFALL IN CENTRAL TANZANIA AROUND TAU 72. ADDITIONAL WEAKENING IS
    ANTICIPATED AS GENERALLY UNFAVORABLE UPPER-LEVEL CONDITIONS PERSIST,
    WITH DISSIPATION BELOW THE 35 KNOT WARNING THRESHOLD NOW EXPECTED TO
    OCCUR BY TAU 72. NUMERICAL MODEL TRACK FORECAST GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD
    OVERALL AGREEMENT THROUGH TAU 48, BUT DIVERGES THEREAFTER DEPENDING
    ON THE STRENGTH OF THE VORTEX IN EACH MODEL AND SUBTLE DIFFERENCES IN
    THE STEERING PATTERN AS MID-LATITUDE TROUGHING PERSISTS TO THE SOUTH.
    THE CURRENT TRACK FORECAST IS PLACED NEAR THE MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS
    AND PREVIOUS FORECAST, WITH MODERATE CONFIDENCE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT
    WAVE HEIGHT AT 221200Z IS 17 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 230300Z AND
    231500Z.//
