Daily weather brief – Friday, January 6, 2017

NWPAC outlook, 06 JAN

NWPAC outlook, 06 JAN

NORTH

It will be another cold day across the northern portion of the north region today, as frigid Siberian air continues to settle over the area. Temperatures warm up a bit as you travel to the south and east, and skies will be filled with just a few scattered clouds and sunshine, with eastern China seeing a chance for showers pop up along a stalled frontal boundary. Beijing’s air quality will remain at hazardous levels, although not quite as bad as earlier in the week.

CENTRAL

Temperatures are warming up a bit more across the central region and moisture is increasing as well as a rather mild and moist air mass moves northward ahead of a stalled frontal system over eastern China. Clouds and showers are likely over the higher terrain of south-central China, stretching eastward to Taiwan, while the Ryukyu Islands will see a better chance for rain due to their proximity to the stalled front.

SOUTH

Drier air continues to dominate the northern half of the south region as the strong northeast monsoon takes full hold. You can really divide the region in half, with northern locales seeing plenty of sunshine, and southern locales seeing tropical moisture and numerous scattered showers and thunderstorms. The southern Philippines will be especially under the gun, as a weak low pressure area to the east slowly makes its way toward the island of Mindanao over the next couple of days.

TROPICS

The tropics remain quiet, officially-speaking, but an area of low pressure could make it quite wet in the southern Philippines…

TAAG, 06 JAN

TAAG, 06 JAN



A weak area of low pressure, remnants of what was 95W INVEST, is located east of the southern Philippine island of Mindanao, creeping along to the west in the general flow of the depressed I.T.C.Z. (Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone). Development of this system is not expected in the near-term, but the system will bring lots of rainfall to the southern Philippines through the weekend. Elsewhere across the tropics, in the south, there’s plenty of moisture and instability helping generate showers and scattered thunderstorms, while the north is seeing some continental air masses encroach upon them, also helping to generate clouds and showers with occasional thunderstorms. For more details on the tropical situation, please see the “Western Pacific Tropical Update” by meteorologist Mike Adcock on the site.
