NWPAC outlook, 13 MAY

NWPAC outlook, 13 MAY

A train of spring storm systems are lined up across the entirety of East Asia, with one system pulling through the eastern parts of the north region as another shot of cool air moves into the region from the northwest. After a couple of nice days, things start to go downhill in the central region. The south stays hot and humid, as the tropics continue to get better situated and help increase the moisture across all of the NWPAC.

 NORTH

A strong cold front is sweeping through northeastern China, eastern Russia, and Korea today. Clouds and showers along the front will keep pressing through as the front continues its easterly slide. Conditions improve rapidly once the front passes, with fresh breezes and lower temperatures and humidity. Energy to the west is stalling out a bit, as another pulse of energy gets wound up along the méiyǔ front and prepares to move through the region this weekend. And another shot of cooler air is just starting to enter the region from the northwest, which will help enhance this weekend’s activity as well.

CENTRAL

The central region has enjoyed two consecutive days of very nice weather as activity along the méiyǔ front relaxed a bit during a lull in the wave. Well, that is all coming to an end starting today, and right on through the weekend as an incoming surge of cooler and drier air combines with energy sliding in from the west and southwest, combining over the region to provide an ample opportunity for showers and thunderstorms, and even some occasionally heavy rain at times in some spots. As it all starts to come together today, we find a chance for showers and thunderstorms in place for just about the entire region.

SOUTH 

The south region stays hot and muggy today as the tropical moisture continues to build up over the region. This moisture has helped fuel some much-needed thunderstorms over many drought-stricken areas of Southeastern Asia over the past week, ahead of what many believe will be a rainy and stormy late summer and fall season due to the predicted La Nina’s effects on the climate at that time. For today, most of the rainfall will be restricted to more southerly locales of the region, although a few showers could pop up over interior portions of Indochina.

 TROPICS 

The tropics are maintaining a slow, steady increase in overall energy as we roll through the days. Plentiful moisture throughout the region will insure that just about everyone sees a shower or thunderstorms today. No organized areas of activity are on the horizon, but we will get our chance out here soon enough.
