Daily weather brief – Wednesday, November 23, 2016

NWPAC outlook, 23 NOV

NWPAC outlook, 23 NOV

NORTH

The big chill is settling into the north region as strong high pressure pushes south and builds into northern reaches of the region. Bitter cold is being felt as far south and east as the Korean peninsula, with temperatures in eastern China failing to reach double digits. Tokyo will be relatively warm today, but is looking at the possibility of snow overnight tonight and tomorrow as the surge pushes through. Cold weather will settle over the region for the foreseeable future, making it feel a lot like winter.

CENTRAL

High pressure from the north is also building down into the central region, and while the coldest air will remain to the north, a refreshing shot of cooler and drier air in on tap for the region over the next couple of days. The leading edge of the surge will help lift up the available moisture, squeezing out showers and moderate rainfall over the southern and eastern portions off the region. Temperatures will be mild across the region as clouds and precipitation dominates.

SOUTH

Weak high pressure continues to help limit cloud and showers development over the northern half of the south region, with another surge on the way for this weekend. Portions of the northern Philippines and Indochina will see a relatively nice day, with warm afternoon highs and just the slightest chance for showers or thunderstorms. The southern Philippines will be dealing with incoming moisture from tropical disturbance 98W INVEST, which is located east of the Philippine island of Mindanao. This disturbance is not expected to gain much strength as it slides across the southern Philippines over the next 2-3 days.

TROPICS

Tropical disturbance 98W INVEST continues to work slowly to the west, setting sights on the southern Philippines.

TAAG, 23 NOV

TAAG, 23 NOV

98W INVEST has been sliding along the general westerly flow of the I.T.C.Z. (Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone) for the past few days and while not getting very strong, it will bring a good deal of rainfall to very dry parts of the southern Philippines, who have been wracked by the recent El Nino effects. Computer models are in pretty good agreement that the system will remain very weak as it traverses the archipelago, with a possible strengthening trend once it emerges in the South China Sea later in the week and over the weekend.

Elsewhere in the tropics, scattered pockets of convergence will combine with the warm afternoon sunshine and the deep tropical moisture to bring a decent chance for showers and thunderstorms across most locales within the region.
