Note:  The CP of 897 mb ranks Rita as the third most intense Atlantic
hurricane on record (based on pressure), exceeded only by Hurricane
Gilbert of 1988 (888 mb) and the 1935 Labor Day Storm in the Florida
Keys (892 mb).  This bumps Allen of 1980 (899 mb) and Katrina of 2005
(902 mb) to 4th and 5th most intense, respectively.

NORTHWEST PACIFIC (NWP) - North Pacific Ocean West of Longitude 180


                        Sources of Information
                        ----------------------

     The track coordinates and 1-minute average maximum sustained wind
  values in general were taken from operational warnings issued by the
  Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) of the U. S. Air Force and Navy,
  located at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.  The central pressure and 10-minute
  average maximum sustained wind estimates for most systems were obtained
  from warnings issued by the Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA), which
  is the World Meteorological Organization's Regional Specialised Meteor-
  ological Centre for the basin.  In a few instances, information from
  warnings issued by other Asian warning centers may have been utilized.
  The center position coordinates from JMA and other centers were com-
  pared with those from JTWC and annotations made in the Remarks column
  when the differences in general amounted to 40-50 nm or more.

     Michael V. Padua of Naga City in the Philippines, owner of the
  Typhoon 2000 website, sends me cyclone tracks based upon warnings
  issued by the Japanese Meteorological Agency and the Philippines'
  Atmospheric, Geophysical & Astronomical Services Administration
  (PAGASA).  Also, Huang Chunliang of Fuzhou City, China, sends me
  each month a table comparing the maximum intensities assigned to each
  cyclone from all the applicable warning centers in the Northwest
  Pacific basin.  A very special thanks to Michael and Chunliang for
  the assistance they so reliably provide.

     Regarding the MSW comparison tables, Huang Chunliang has often
  stated:  "In the title line the storm grade has been adopted based on
  the classification of the most 'radical' TCWC.   Also, all the storm
  names/numbers available to me have been referenced.   In addition, the
  starting date points to the one when the system was initially upgraded
  to TD status by whatever TCWC, while the ending date represents the one
  when the storm was last ranked as a TD by whatever TCWC."

Note: GRMC = Guangzhou Regional Meteorologic Center / CWB = Central
Weather Bureau of Taiwan.  That this depression was very diffuse and
poorly-defined is evidenced by the considerable disparity between the
center coordinates issued by JMA, GRMC, CWB and the Thai Meteorological
Department.  The track through 13/0600 UTC is based upon JMA's bulletins
with the largest discrepancy annotated.  Beginning at 13/1200 UTC the
track is based upon bulletins from the Thai Meteorological Department
(TMD).

This system was the predecessor of the later Cyclonic Storm Pyarr in
the Bay of Bengal.  The TMD was the only agency to track the system
continuously as a depression from its birth in the South China Sea until
its demise inland in India.  Huang Chunliang kindly supplied me with
the entire TMD track, but I have split it into two segments at 100E;
the latter portion will be covered in the North Indian Ocean basin.

Following is the MSW comparison table compiled and sent by Huang
Chunliang.  This includes the entire life cycle of the system.
(In the South China Sea its NRL invest number was 93W; in the Bay
of Bengal it was 96B.)

Note 1: During Phase 1 (Tropical Depression 93W in SCS), GRMC
(Guangzhou), HKO (Hong Kong), CWB (Taipei), SMG (Macao), JMA (Tokyo) &
TMD (Bangkok) all classified the system as a TD, while JTWC (Honolulu)
ranked it as a tropical disturbance only.  GRMC even forecast the TD to
intensify into a TS in a couple of bulletins, but this never materialized
before the system moved out of their AOR, though.

Note 2: During Phase 2 (Cyclonic Storm 96B in BOB), Both IMD (New Delhi)
and PMD (Islamabad) classified the system as a CS, while TMD (Bangkok)
ranked it as a TD only.

Note 3(*): The MSW is merely the "peak" value based on the limited 
warnings released only when the system was travelling within the
restricted AOR, so it could have not been the real peak.

Note 4(#): CWB normally doesn't make any wind estimations for tropical 
depressions.

NORTH INDIAN OCEAN (NIO) - Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea

                        Sources of Information
                        ----------------------

     The track coordinates and 1-minute average maximum sustained wind
  values in general were taken from operational warnings issued by the
  Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) of the U. S. Air Force and Navy,
  located at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.   Occasionally some information may
  have been gleaned from the daily tropical weather outlooks and other
  bulletins issued by the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), which
  is the World Meteorological Organization's Regional Specialised Meteor-
  ological Centre for the basin.
 
     The reported maximum sustained winds are based on a 1-minute
  averaging period, which is used by all U. S. civilian and military
  weather services for tropical cyclone warnings.     For synoptic
  observations in the North Indian Ocean region, both 10-minute and
  3-minute average winds are employed, but IMD makes no attempt to
  modify the Dvorak scale for estimating tropical cyclone intensity;
  hence, a 1-minute average MSW is implied.

Note: The track above begins with the Thai Meteorological Department's
(TMD) track at 100E, where I left off with the track of the earlier
South China Sea depression (NRL Invest 93W).  Following is the MSW
comparison table compiled and sent by Huang Chunliang for the entire
system's history. (The same table is included with the track of the
aforementioned South China Sea depression.)  JTWC issued no warnings
on Cyclonic Storm Pyarr, it being treated as a 'poor' area in a couple
of STWOs.  Satellite classifications from SAB justified tropical storm
intensity for Pyarr, peaking at T3.0/3.0 (45 kts) at 18/0230 UTC.

Note 1: During Phase 1 (Tropical Depression 93W in SCS), GRMC
(Guangzhou), HKO (Hong Kong), CWB (Taipei), SMG (Macao), JMA (Tokyo) &
TMD (Bangkok) all classified the system as a TD, while JTWC (Honolulu)
ranked it as a tropical disturbance only.  GRMC even forecast the TD to
intensify into a TS in a couple of bulletins, but this never materialized
before the system moved out of their AOR, though.

Note 2: During Phase 2 (Cyclonic Storm 96B in BOB), Both IMD (New Delhi)
and PMD (Islamabad) classified the system as a CS, while TMD (Bangkok)
ranked it as a TD only.

Note 3(*): The MSW is merely the "peak" value based on the limited 
warnings released only when the system was travelling within the
restricted AOR, so it could have not been the real peak.

Note 4(#): CWB normally doesn't make any wind estimations for tropical 
depressions.

                        ----------------------

     The track coordinates as well as the central pressure and 10-minute
  average maximum sustained wind estimates were obtained from warnings
  issued by Meteo France's Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre on Reunion
  Island (MFR), which is the World Meteorological Organization's Regional
  Specialised Meteorological Centre for the basin.  The 1-minute average
  maximum sustained wind estimates were taken from warnings issued by the
  Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) of the U. S. Air Force and Navy,
  located at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.  The center position coordinates from
  JTWC were compared with those from MFR and annotations made in the
  Remarks column when the differences in general amounted to 40-50 nm
  or more.

             !!!!!!  IMPORTANT NOTE - PLEASE READ  !!!!!!

     To repeat the caveat which is included in the Author's Note
  at the end of the cyclone summaries--the tropical cyclone tracks
  I prepare are based upon the operational warnings/advisories/
  advices/bulletins which are issued by the various tropical cyclone
  warning agencies around the world.   Users of these tracks should
  be aware that they are preliminary and subject to revision during
  post-seasonal analyses of the cyclones by the forecasters and
  analysts at the several warning centers.

     For the Atlantic and Northeast Pacific basins, official tropical
  cyclone reports and "best tracks" can be found at the website of
  the Tropical Prediction Center/National Hurricane Center:

     http://www.nhc.noaa.gov>

     The Joint Typhoon Warning Center's website contains links to their
  Annual Tropical Cyclone Reports which include that agency's "best
  tracks" for tropical cyclones in the Northwest Pacific basin, the
  North Indian Ocean, and the Southern Hemisphere:
