Daily update- Thursday, June 30, 2016

NWPAC outlook, 30 JUN

NWPAC outlook, 30 JUN

Clouds and showers return to much of the north region and the central region sees another day of thunderstorms and flooding rainfall as well. The south is mired in the think, soupy, tropical atmosphere while activity within the region responsible for all of this warm, wet moisture is missing in action. 

NORTH

Clouds, showers, and a few thunderstorms will pop up across much of the north region as méiyǔ moisture and energy work back to the north. A stalled frontal system remains draped over Japan and eastern China, helping to focus the moisture into developing rainfall. There’s a bit of a break in the moisture flow along the front, so Shanghai will see a pretty decent day, but showers and thunderstorms are possible across the Japanese archipelago and the Korean peninsula. Another storm system is pressing down from the northwest into Mongolia and northern China, and the southerly flow ahead of the front is pulling some tropical moisture up into central portions of the region, helping increase clouds and showers and significantly lowering temperatures. Temperatures will be seasonably warm across the region, with lower readings where cloud cover and rainfall amounts are greatest.

CENTRAL

More showers and thunderstorms will roll across the central region today as the ever-present méiyǔ front wavers over the region. The front is hugging the southeastern Chinese coast, acting as a source for lifting up the copious moisture across the region into strong showers and thunderstorms. Once again we see a risk for locally heavy rain, localized flooding, and possible landslides in the higher elevations as the rain pounds the already very saturated ground. Temperatures will be reflective of the season, with warm, but bearable readings, region-wide.

SOUTH

The south region will see the least change in the weather, as warm, summery conditions continue. Lots of moisture is in place making for a very humid day, and the warm sunshine is helping to heat things up, which will result in numerous clouds and showers, with occasional thunderstorms across most of the region this afternoon. The earlier monsoon gyre over the South China Sea has moved into Indochina, and has opened up into an elongated trough. This just means that the moisture continues to get pulled into these areas, but the energy has declined a bit, so activity will be a bit more scattered than in previous days, especially over southern Indochina.

All is quiet across the tropics, as the ITCZ (Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone) takes a bit of a break after last week’s round of action.

Daily update- Wednesday, June 29, 2016

NWPAC outlook, 29 JUN

NWPAC outlook, 29 JUN

Clouds and showers affect parts of the north region as the central region stays wet as well, all thanks to méiyǔ moisture and energy that undulates across both regions. Tropical moisture remains over the south region as summer heat continues to bear down, and the latest series of weak disturbances in the tropics have pulled much of the excess moisture up into the Asian continent and quieted things down a bit across the region. 

NORTH

A lingering frontal system draped across the eastern one-third of the north region is once again acting as a focusing mechanism for méiyǔ moisture and energy. Clouds, showers, and even a few thunderstorms will pop up along the front this afternoon from Japan, to the southwest across the Korean peninsula and parts of eastern China. Another weak storm system is rolling through Mongolia stirring up some clouds and showers across much of the northern tier of the region, while keeping temperatures a bit lower. It will be another torrid day across parts of central China, as temperatures peak near 39C (102F) and heat indices approach 45C (113F).

CENTRAL

Plentiful moisture has moved into the central region thanks to the remnants of 97W, which moved inland yesterday and is adding more fuel to the already incendiary atmospheric situation with the presence of a stalled frontal boundary, which has helped drag down méiyǔ energy from the north and additional moisture from the southwest. All of this translates into a very rainy day across the entirety of the central region, with locally heavy rainfall and localized flooding possible in some areas. Flooding and landslides are a risk, especially in higher elevations of southeastern China, where this season’s monsoon has had the most impact. Temperatures will be seasonably warm across the region, with most readings held back just a bit by the extensive region-wide cloud-cover.

SOUTH

Tropical moisture is well established over much of the south region, as a series of recent disturbances have moved into and through the region. The latest system, 97W, is no longer an issue for the south region, and the large monsoon gyre that has been spinning almost stationary over the eastern South China Sea for the past 5 days has finally drifted to the west over land. Much of southern Indochina will continue to be affected by moisture being pulled in from the Indian Ocean by this gyre, but, its influence to the eastern parts of the region will wane steadily over the next day or so. The gyre has pulled much of the moisture out of the most southerly of locations within the region, so while much of Indochina and the Philippines will see an afternoon with showers and occasional storms, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, and parts of Indonesia will stay mostly dry with lots of sunshine.

TROPICS

Five days ago, there were more swirls in the I.T.C.Z. (Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone) than one could keep up with. Just like ‘that’, the activity dies down, and the tropics return to a more benign condition. The latest series of disturbances, which include 97W and the large, nearly-stationary monsoon gyre in the South China Sea, have served to return a bit of balance to the region as the skies clear and the convergence dies down a bit. Most locations will see a chance for scattered showers or thunderstorms, as a result of the standard atmospheric situation, but there are no specific areas of concern to watch as this time.

Daily update- Tuesday, June 28, 2016

NWPAC outlook, 28 JUN

NWPAC outlook, 28 JUN

Summer settles into parts of the north region as méiyǔ energy sags to the south. Tropical moisture moves into the central region and activates along the méiyǔ front, bringing more flooding rainfall. Tropical moisture and energy plague much of the south region as well, while the tropics continue to show signs of seasonal maturation. 

NORTH

A couple of storm systems are still affecting much of the north region, with a slow-moving system across Japan acting as a focusing mechanism for méiyǔ moisture, and another system over northern China bringing clouds and showers to a few spots. The latter storm will fire off a few thunderstorms as it slams into the very warm and moist air settled in over eastern parts of the continent. The former system will continue to linger across the region today, as it has for the past couple of days, and act as source for clouds and rain from Japan, southwest into eastern China. Hot temperatures are in place over central China, where sunny skies will allow the summer sunshine to really heat things up.

CENTRAL

Deep tropical moisture is moving into the central region, courtesy of a deep monsoonal gyre to the south over the South China Sea, helping to pump in copious base moisture, and bringing in the remnant energy and moisture from the system formerly known as 97W. Just about everyone in southeast China, Taiwan, and the Ryukyu islands will see a round off thunderstorms this afternoon. Southeastern China, including Hong Kong will see more influence from tropical remnants, while locations to the north will see a stalled frontal boundary combine with this incoming moisture and fire off some storms. Locally heavy rainfall with localized flooding, and possible landslides in the higher elevations, are once again on the list of risks today throughout much of southeastern Asia. The one exception will be parts of extreme southern China and northern Indochina, where northerly flow on the west side of the monsoon low to the south will bring in slightly drier air as it moves down into the region from the higher elevations to the north.

SOUTH

After suffering from the El Nino-induced drought for well over 9 months, much of the south region is seeing much-welcome relief as tropical moisture continues to dominate the region. A large monsoonal low pressure area continues to spin in the South China Sea, just east of Vietnam. This low is not really a tropical feature, but is more a multi-level feature brought about by the shifting global environment from El Nino to La Nina, a process that will take several more months to finish. This monsoonal low is doing just what one of these features does – help pull in tropical moisture from the southern latitudes up into locations farther north. This low also helped shear 97W apart after it crossed the Philippines, and it steered 97W’s remnants away from the original forecasted point of landfall near Hainan, up to a messy entry near Hong Kong. Another typical summer day will take place for residents of the south region, as the deep moisture gets a lift from the hot afternoon sun to squeeze out showers and occasional thunderstorms, with the activity especially heavy over parts of southern Indochina.

TROPICS

With the remnants of 97W moving into southeastern China today, we turn our attention back to the east, where lots of general convergence is making the I.T.C.Z. (Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone) looks like a pot of boiling soup on satellite loops. There are currently no organized areas of concern out there, and long-range computer forecast models are showing no hint of development in the mid-term. The monsoonal low over the South China Sea will continue to spin and drag lots of moisture into the southern portions of Indochina. Everyone else will see a decent chance for an afternoon shower or thunderstorm as summer keeps rolling right along.
