Daily update- Thursday, June 2, 2016

NWPAC outlook, 02 JUN

NWPAC outlook, 02 JUN

Warm, summer-like conditions spread across most of the north region, while the central region continues to deal with the seasonal East Asian monsoon. The south is hot too, but much-welcomed shower activity brings relief in the afternoon. The tropics stay mostly quiet and well-behaved. 

NORTH

Summer warmth is progressing northward across the north region, as afternoon highs climb upward with each passing day. Most of the inclement weather will take place across the southern portion of the region, as an undulating cold front slowly gathers into another strong pulse of energy for the East Asian monsoon to digest in the coming days. Most locations across the region will see a nice afternoon, with scattered clouds and lots of sunshine, while portions of the south will see a good chance for showers.

CENTRAL

Parts of the central region will deal with energy and moisture from the East Asian monsoon and méiyǔ front today, while areas to the south will see intense summertime heat set in. A frontal system has slid into the northeastern portion of the region, bringing a good chance for thunderstorms in the Ryukyu Islands and Taiwan. Clouds decrease across the region as you travel to the west and south. This decrease in cloudiness will allow a very intense sun to beam down and really heat things up in some spots across southern China and northern Vietnam this afternoon. There is still a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms over the flood-ravaged higher terrain of southeastern China, as the topography gives the ample moisture a bit of a lift with the daytime heating. However, storm coverage is expected to be much less than in previous days.

SOUTH

The south region will see another day of typical summer weather, with plenty of warm sunshine to start the day, and afternoon showers and thunderstorms to help cool things off just a bit. Tropical energy is sliding across the southern Philippines, with another tropical trough located just to the west of the Philippines. These two features will help destabilize the atmosphere enough for thunderstorms to develop across parts of the archipelago. A semi-permanent monsoon trough is located over the southern coast of the Southeast Asian peninsula, but the north side of the trough is a bit dry today, so fewer storms can be expected over the land areas.

 TROPICS 

It’s another day of quiet, boring weather across the tropics, with very little in the way of threatening weather to consider at all. We have three trough features bringing some clouds and showers to parts of the region. Two are located on either side of the Philippines, while a third is far to the east in the Marshall Islands. A semi-permanent monsoon trough is in place over southern Vietnam, but the atmosphere is a bit drier around this feature at present. Overall, there are no tropical threats out there, and most locations will see a day of morning sun and afternoon showers and thunderstorms.

Daily update- Wednesday, June 1, 2016

NWPAC outlook, 01 JUN

NWPAC outlook, 01 JUN

Warmer air returns to much of the north region as the East Asian monsoon brings showers to southern parts. The central region also continues to deal with méiyǔ energy and moisture as rain, sometimes heavy, continues. The south also continues to see a continuation of a wetter weather pattern, much to the relief of residents. The tropics remain relatively quiet as the slow uptick in activity continues. 

NORTH

As we enter the month of June, we find very warm air settling in over portions of the north region, with the East Asian monsoon also starting to undulate across southern portions of the region. The energy today is focused along a stalled frontal boundary that is draped over the center of China from east to west. Ripples of energy and moisture riding along this front will bring showers and thunderstorms to portions of central and eastern China. Most of the remainder of the region will see a few scattered clouds and plenty of warm spring sunshine.

CENTRAL

Parts of the central region are dealing with hazardous conditions due to heavy rain settling in over southern portions of the region. Flooding and landslides continue to dominate the news out of Guangdong province as the rain continues to roll over the region in waves day after day. Today will see another chance of thunderstorms over the area, as tropical moisture in place gets a lift from the warm afternoon sun, and the mountainous terrain of the interior regions of the provinces in the region, to squeeze out showers and thunderstorms. Where showers don’t fall, temperatures will warm up to summertime levels, with most of the heat located in southern China and northern Vietnam.

SOUTH

After suffering through so many months of drought, or near-drought, conditions, residents of the south are thankful for the daily doses of showers and thunderstorms over the region. Again, today, we see a good chance for showers and thunderstorms over the majority of the region, as tropical moisture dominates. Temperatures across the region will settle in at near-normal levels across the region, with slightly lower readings in and near thunderstorms.

 TROPICS 

As has been the case through the start of the 2016 typhoon season, very little in the way of activity is present in the tropics. Certainly there are no signs whatsoever of anything potentially dangerous developing, and in fact, there is even little in the way of easterly wave activity. One wave is sliding along the general westerly flow of the I.T.C.Z. (Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone) through the Marshall Islands. Another rather strong wave is rolling through the western islands of Micronesia, whilst another slides out of the Philippines into the South China Sea. A third wave is cruising through Indonesia and Brunei, while a semi-permanent monsoon trough feature continues over southern Indochina. Most locations across the region can expect another round of afternoon showers and thunderstorms, which pretty much equals a beautiful day in paradise.

Dost TV PAGASA New “Philippine Weather Channel” Starts and Tropical Outlook

This week we have seen the start of a new program that looks promising from the government of the Philippines. It is a 1 hour podcast hosted by PAGASA discussing Meteorology in the Philippines. I have followed it the last few days and it seems like if the kinks are worked out the show could be a big educational tool and help for those in the country. (Kinks being more technical than anything, less to do with the content of the show.)

On the flip side the documentaries so far have been very interesting and engaging and would make any Filipino scientist proud. Especially the episode 2 storm chaser documentary that looked deep in to the PAGASA chasers and what they do .

 

Would like to see more weather on the show though, right now 2 minutes are crammed in basically a general synoptic situation layout and a 1 day forecast. More on whats going on out there in detail would be nice. All things considered though the show was only thought of 3 months ago. For a decent produced show that is a incredible feet.

 

Plus in my video above today I take a look at the tropics and what to expect (or not expect) in the coming days and take a look at the seasonal outlook from the westpacwx team.
