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.

CENTRAL

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.

SOUTH

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.

TROPICS

The tropics have quieted down considerably as drier air from the north pushes well into the region…

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.
