NWPAC outlook, 11 MAR

NWPAC outlook, 11 MAR

Temperatures start to warm back up across much of the north region as the central region continues to enjoy the cooler weather for a while. The south will see another hot day and the tropics a warming up, but staying quiet. 


The short-lived cool spell for the north region is winding down, especially over northern and western portions of the region. Japan saw a bit of frozen precipitation this morning as the leading edge of the cooler air passed through, and they will be the only location that sees a decrease in temperatures today under cloudy skies. The reminder of the region will see temperatures inching up in the foreseeable future as spring begins to take hold across the region. Skies will be sunny to partly cloudy region-wide, offering up nice weather for outdoor activities.

City High Temp C (F) Low Temp C (F) Conditions
Ulaanbaatar -4 (25) -23 (-9) Partly Cloudy
Vladivostok 1 (34) -9 (16) Partly Cloudy
Beijing 9 (48) -3 (27) Fair
Seoul 6 (43) -3 (27) Fair
Tokyo 7 (45) 3 (37) Cloudy
Xi’an 16 (61) 1 (34) Partly Cloudy
Shanghai 11 (52) 2 (36) Partly Cloudy



The central region is still dealing with cooler temperatures as the latest surge settles in and slowly begins to moderate. However, the warm-up has already started in northwestern locations within the region, as return flow builds in behind the most recent surge. A big return of warm weather is expected across the region in the coming days, as spring starts to return to the region. Lingering moisture riding along the stalled frontal boundary in the southern portions of the region will keep clouds and rain around for southeastern China, but everyone else will enjoy a pleasant day, with just a few scattered clouds.

Some slightly cooler air has filtered sown into the south region must to the delight of residents of the Southeast Asian peninsula. It will still be a fairly hot day across the region, but not as oppressive as days past. A few showers could fall across parts of the southern Philippines, while Singapore could see a bit of thunder and lightning as well. The remainder of the region will see lots of sunshine and just a few scattered clouds.

As one would expect this time of year, the tropics are mostly quiet. A trio of weak ripples of energy are moving along the I.T.C.Z. (Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone), which still remains positioned very far to the south and weak. Central and western Micronesia will be affected by scattered showers and thunderstorms, as well as the Marshall Islands to the east. More northerly locations in the region will stay cooler, with influence from continental systems continuing to dominate these locations.
