      REMARKS: 2 AM (18 GMT) 04 APRIL POSITION: 18.9N 144.1E.
      ^ANIMATED WATER VAPOR SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THAT THE
      CENTRAL CONVECTION HAS BECOME MORE INTENSE AND THAT A 17 KM
      EYE IS PRESENT. A 6PM APR 3 SSMIS IMAGE CLEARLY DEPICTS THE
      EYE SURROUNDED BY DEEP CONVECTION IN ALL QUADRANTS. THE FOR-
      WARD MOTION OF THE STORM HAS DECREASED OVER THE PAST SIX
      HOURS AS IT APPROACHES THE RIDGE AXIS. TY KONG-REY CONTINUES
      TO TRACK ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE MID-LEVEL
      SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TOWARD A WEAKNESS IN THE RIDGE. THE SYSTEM
      HAS BEGUN TO TRACK INCREASINGLY POLEWARD OVER THE PAST SIX
      HOURS AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO, BEFORE TURNING SHARPLY
      NORTHEASTWARD AND ACCELERATING AS THE SYSTEM INTERACTS WITH
      THE MIDLATITUDE WESTERLIES BY 24 HOURS. THE WESTERLIES ARE
      ENHANCED IN FRONT OF AN APPROACHING LOW PRESSURE TROUGH
      THAT IS DEEPENING AND SLOWLY MOVING EASTWARD..
