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.

TROPICS

One weak tropical disturbance has cropped up just east of the Philippines while the remainder of the region remains rather quiet.

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.

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.
