Weekend weather brief – December 31/January 1, 2016-17

NWPAC outlook, 31 DEC/01 JAN

NWPAC outlook, 31 DEC/01 JAN

NORTH

High pressure has built in over the entire north region this weekend, and while that nullifies any precipitation chances, it brings a general lack of movement on the surface, leading to stagnation and hazardous air quality over interior northeastern China. Temperatures across the region are rebounding following last week’s surge, but very cold readings remain over Mongolia, northern China, southeastern Russia, while comfortably cool weather settles over eastern China, the Korean Peninsula, and Japan.

CENTRAL

Temperatures continue to rebound over the central region as we prepare to welcome in the New Year as the mercury climbs into mild to warm readings across the region. High pressure building in from the north will keep skies clear to partly cloudy over much of the Asian mainland, but clouds and showers will linger over offshore locales, and over northern Indochina, through the weekend.

SOUTH

Dry air has settled in over western portions of the south region, allowing temperatures to warm up considerably over Indochina this weekend. The Philippines will see some showers as the strong northeast monsoon brings in moisture to the northern half of the country, and a weak tropical disturbance east of Mindanao brings rain to the southern portion of the archipelago. Deep moisture persists over the Malay Peninsula and Singapore, while areas to the east will dry out a bit for the New Year.

TAAG, 31 DEC

TAAG, 31 DEC

94W INVEST has formed to the east of the southern Philippine island of Mindanao, courtesy of moisture shoved southward by the strong seasonal monsoon and the remnants of what was 93W INVEST. Current computer forecast models are not showing much in the way of development, but a trend towards generally lower pressures in the area will continue for the first few days of the New Year.

94W INVEST, 31 DEC

The remainder of the region will see a mix of sun, clouds, and showers as a generally moist atmospheric profile dominates south of 5N latitude, while areas to the north will see much more sunshine.

Daily weather brief – Friday, December 30, 2016

NWPAC outlook, 30 DEC

NWPAC outlook, 30 DEC

NORTH

The latest frontal system to pass through the region is making its way out to sea east of Japan, leaving behind high pressure building in over eastern Asia. With the high pressure comes stagnant air over northeastern China, which will decrease air quality levels significantly over the area. Temperatures range from bone-chillingly cold in the northern tier of the region, to cool, but comfortable readings to the south and east. The region will see a mix of clouds and sun with no precipitation to be found anywhere.

Skies will be a bit cloudy over interior Indochina as moisture lingers in the mid-levels, but the remainder of the northern half of the region will see a pleasant mix of sun and clouds. To the south, tropical moisture remains in place, lending to a few showers and afternoon thunderstorms at the peak of daytime heating.

Aside from one weak tropical wave east of the southern Philippines, we find that drier air has cleared out much of the activity across the region. Pockets of instability are floating along in the general atmospheric flow, and a few scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible over western Micronesia and the Marshall Islands. More northerly locales will see a just few clouds and plenty of sunshine as temperatures settle into climatological norms.

Daily weather brief – Thursday, December 29, 2016

NWPAC outlook, 29 DEC

NWPAC outlook, 29 DEC

NORTH

A new frontal system is rolling through the north region, with a new surge behind it that is reinforcing the cold air already in place across the region. Moisture levels are quite low ahead of the frontal system, so only a few scattered clouds are likely as the system sweeps across Japan later this afternoon. Most locations ill see bright, sunny skies today, with just a few scattered clouds to the south and east. Temperatures will be bone-chillingly cold across the most northerly locales, while more comfortable readings dominate in the southeast.

It feels a lot like winter across much of the central region as high pressure builds into the region from the northwest. Showers will persist over the Ryukyu Islands and Taiwan, with cloudy skies over southeastern China as a frontal system passes to the north. Low clouds and fog will hamper travel across the high country of south-central China as sunny skies dominate over southern China and northern Indochina.

Drier and slightly cooler air has moved into northern locales of the south region, as the seasonal northeast monsoon builds back in following the weekend’s tropical activity. Remnants of 30W NOCK-TEN are filtering into southern Indochina, bringing cloudy skies to the area, while partly cloudy conditions will dominate over central Indochina and the northern half of the Philippines. Deep tropical moisture persists below 5N attitude, and will bring about a chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms over Malaysia, Brunei, the southern Philippines and northern Indonesia, with cloudy skies over Singapore.

TAAG, 29 DEC

TAAG, 29 DEC

As we gaze across the western Pacific Ocean we see only 93W INVEST out there, and this disturbance has lost its gusto after taking in much drier air. This system will most likely be taken off the books today, leaving the tropics mostly clear of any significant activity. A few scattered thunderstorms are possible over eastern Micronesia and the Marshall Islands this afternoon, while the remainder of the region deals with a pleasant mix of clouds and sunshine.
