NWPAC outlook, 30 MAY

NWPAC outlook, 30 MAY

Summer returns to portions of the north region as afternoon temperatures hit the highest points so far this year. The central region continues to deal with méiyǔ energy and tropical moisture with flooding and landslides. Welcoming rain continues to fall across much of the south region, helping to end the drought conditions for many locations. The tropics remain quiet, but there are hints every day that things are slowly picking up.

 NORTH

The big story in the north region today is the intense heat over portions of interior China, as afternoon highs reach the mid-30’s (mid-upper 90’s F) in some locations. The humidity is a bit higher now as well, so this will not be a comfortable experience. A shot of cooler air is moving through Mongolia, but looks to stay to the north. Rain will fall over much of Japan today as a frontal system rolls through the archipelago. The remainder of the region will see a nice, but quite warm, day.

CENTRAL

The moisture from 90W combined with the energy of the méiyǔ front over the weekend, brining torrential rain to northern areas of southern China’s Guangdong province. Local government officials said Sunday eight tourists died during flash floods as parts of south and east China continue to set rainfall records. Flooding and landslides were reported throughout the region as these areas continue to see record-setting amounts of rainfall this year. Please check back to the website for more details by meteorologist Rob Speta on the recent Chinese flooding event.

Residual moisture from the remnants of 90W will get stirred up by energy sliding in from the west along the nearly-stationary méiyǔ front, bringing a chance of showers and afternoon thunderstorms across the entire region today, while Okinawa and Taiwan will see a chance for strong thunderstorms as the tail end of the active front slides through. Temperatures will be warm, but the clouds and rain will hold readings down a bit from seasonal averages.

SOUTH

Tropical moisture prevails in the atmosphere across the south region, as we get deeper and deeper into the tropical weather season. Lingering moisture will enhance rainfall chances across most of the region today as the hot afternoon sun lifts up the humid parcels into the cooler air aloft, squeezing out showers and occasional strong thunderstorms.

TROPICS 

The tropics are quite stirred up as we enter the final days of May, but still, there’s nothing of any real concern out there. 91W INVEST was declared for a short time yesterday to the east-northeast of the Philippines, but has since been taken off the books as a risk for development. The trough responsible for the designation will slide slowly west-southwestward and bring enhanced rain chances to the Philippines over the next 2 or 3 days. Other weak surface trough features are sliding along the ambient westerly flow of the I.T.C.Z. (Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone) bringing a decent chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms to most locations.
