NWPAC outlook, 15 MAR

NWPAC outlook, 15 MAR

Warm, spring-like weather continues across the northern two-thirds of eastern Asia and the NWPAC, as the southern one-third bathes in summertime heat. The tropics remain quiet, but continue to warm, with no cyclone development in sight. 

NORTH

Warm, spring-like temperatures continue to build across the north region today, with a slight cool-down scheduled for the upcoming weekend. The north region will see a fine day today, as Japan clears out, and a couple of weak pulses of drier air pass through northern Japan and Mongolia.

CENTRAL

The central region will also see a pretty nice day, with the exception of Taiwan, which is still dealing with moisture and instability associated with the tail-end of a frontal system to the south. Southeastern China could also see some clouds from this feature, but will remain dry. The remainder of the region will see a warm spring day, with plenty of sunshine.

SOUTH

The south region will see more heat and building humidity today. The warmest air will be located over the southern Philippines, where the island of Mindanao could see dangerous heat indices this afternoon. Most locations will remain dry today, with a few morning thundershowers over interior portions of Indochina, and some scattered thunderstorms in Malaysia and Brunei.

 TROPICS 

The tropics are once again very quiet, with very little in the way of shower and thunderstorm development expected over most of the region. The I.T.C.Z. (Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone) remains inactive, with a diffuse ripple of energy sliding along through central and western Micronesia. Most locations in the tropics will see plenty of sunshine, with just a few scattered clouds.
