Daily update- Tuesday, May 31, 2016

NWPAC outlook, 31 MAY

NWPAC outlook, 31 MAY

Cooler air settles into parts of the north region, bringing some relief from yesterday’s heat. The central region continues to deal with deep moisture and méiyǔ energy with heavy rain. The south region is also seeing its fair share of rainfall, a much-needed respite from the drought that affects most of the region. The tropics are still serving up a daily dose of showers and thunderstorms throughout the region but are still devoid of anything significant. 

NORTH

Temperatures have cooled significantly over portions of northern China as cooler air slides in from the north, powered by a moderate storm system in southeastern Russia. The trailing cold front will bring showers to parts of eastern and central China, and clouds to the Korean peninsula and the remainder of the eastern continent. Clouds will increase through the day in Japan, but it should remain mostly dry across the archipelago.

CENTRAL

The general west to east flow of the quasi-stationary East Asian monsoon, also known as the méiyǔ front or ‘plum rain’ front, has pulled most of the deep moisture away from the region, so rain chances will be a bit restricted as compared to recent days. More moisture will move in from the west and south to replace it in the coming days, but for now, we can enjoy a bit of a break in the action. Residual moisture offshore of the continent will keep things wet across Okinawa and Taiwan, and a few thunderstorms could pop up in southwestern China as well.

SOUTH

Deep, tropical moisture remains in place over the south region, as it will stay for the next several months. Ripples of atmospheric energy from the north are swinging down and mixing with this moisture, helping to generate showers and thunderstorms in abundance over the region. Since much of the region has seen drought conditions during the duration of the most recent, and waning, strong El Nino event, this rainfall is a most welcome development. Overall, temperatures will be summery warm today with a good chance for showers or thunderstorms region-wide.

 TROPICS 

For another day, we peer out over the vastness of the western Pacific Ocean, only to find nothing of real interest. General convergence is taking place within the I.T.C.Z. (Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone) region-wide, but no focused areas of development are evident. Most locations across the region can expect a very warm afternoon with a good chance for showers or thunderstorms.
