Daily weather brief – Monday, January 9, 2017

NWPAC outlook, 09 JAN

NWPAC outlook, 09 JAN



NORTH

A new shot of Siberian air is making its way through the northern reaches of the north region as we kick off the new work week, as high pressure dominates the remainder of the region. One storm system is exiting the Japanese archipelago out into the Pacific, ushering is some cooler air for the Land of the Rising Sun, and the second, much colder, air mass is behind a frontal system draped over southeastern Russia and northern China. Snow showers accompany the coldest air over Mongolia and northern China, while showers will fall over central and northern Japan as that storm system continues to push offshore. Temperatures will be brutally cold across the northern tier of the region, and quite cold to the south and east as well, as winter gets a firm hold over continental east Asia.

CENTRAL

Moisture streaming in from the west will bring a good chance for showers to offshore locations of the central region as the tail end of a cold front and related storm system to the north pulls away slowly. Temperatures have cooled slightly over last week’s readings, leaving behind a mild and comfortable weather scenario for much of the region.

SOUTH

Residents of the central Philippines are dealing with a weak tropical depression as it moves slowly over the archipelago today. In the meantime, drier air dominates the northern half of the country as well as much of southern and central Indochina. More southerly locales will see tropical moisture remain in place, which gets a lift from the warm afternoon sunshine to help spawn a few showers and thunderstorms over these areas.

TAAG, 09 JAN



Tropical depression 01w, also named “Auring” by the Philippines’ state weather agency PAGASA, has been moving slowly across the archipelago over the weekend, dumping heavy rain over much of the nation’s central and southern provinces. This system is expected to continue to weaken as it tracks to the west and into the South China Sea over the next 24 hours.

TD01W, full, 09 JAN

Elsewhere across the region, widespread instability, brought on mostly by incursions of continental air from the north, will help lift up some showers and thunderstorms over much of the region today, as the depressed I.T.C.Z. (Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone) undulates weakly far to the south. For more on the tropics, please refer to the “Western Pacific Tropical Update” by meteorologist Mike Adcock on this website.
