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.

Temperatures are rebounding a bit across the central region as the air mass overhead moderates slowly. Aside from some fog and low clouds over the higher terrain of south-central China, and lingering clouds and showers over the Ryukyu Islands and Taiwan, the skies will be mostly clear across the region.

SOUTH

Much drier air has filtered into Indochina as the seasonal northeast monsoon rebuilds following a brief interruption by recent tropical activity. 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.

TROPICS

As we wrap up 2016, we find very little in the way of activity in the tropical Western Pacific…

TAAG, 30 DEC

TAAG, 30 DEC

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.
