Weekend weather brief – December 10/11, 2016

NWPAC outlook, 10/11 DEC

NWPAC outlook, 10/11 DEC

NORTH

The latest in a series of storm systems is making its way out into the open ocean east of Japan this weekend, with strong northwesterly winds bringing in moisture from the Sea of Japan, generating sea-effect snow squalls across coastal prefectures and higher terrain of Hokkaido and the northern half of Honshu. Outside of these coastal areas, skies will be partly cloudy due to a lack of significant moisture associated with the storm system itself. Clouds will linger over eastern China as the new surge builds in from the northwest, keeping the frigid temperatures in place across Mongolia, northern China, and southeastern Russia, with very chilly readings across the remainder of the region.

CENTRAL

Temperatures are holding steady across the central region as most of the colder air with the new surges stays well to the north. Fresh northeasterly winds will continue to bring in moisture from the ocean and drive it up the higher terrain of Taiwan, making for a damp, rainy day across the island. High pressure building in behind the latest frontal system will keep the remainder of the region pleasant with just a few clouds and plenty of sunshine.

SOUTH

Drier air continues to filter down into northern locales of the south region as a stalled frontal system starts to move out of the area to the northeast. Strong northeasterly winds ahead of high pressure building into the region will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms across the Philippines, while another weak area of low pressure to the south of Indochina will help generate showers across the Malay Peninsula and southern Vietnam. Plentiful tropical moisture remains in place for more southerly locations in the region, and the warm afternoon sun will help lift that moisture up into scattered showers and thunderstorms through the weekend.

TROPICS

There’s nothing officially on the books in the tropic as we continue to travel deeper into the climatological quiet time in the region.

TAAG, 10 DEC

TAAG, 10 DEC

General convergence continues across the I.T.C.Z. (Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone), with one focused are of low pressure over the South China Sea and another located south of Palau in western Micronesia. Another ripple of energy is passing through the southern Mariana Islands, helping generate widespread showers across the islands. The remainder of the region will see pockets of instability as the warm sunshine works with the available moisture to generate showers and scattered thunderstorms.
