NWPAC outlook, 11 JAN

NWPAC outlook, 11 JAN



NORTH

Frigid air remains over the entirety of the north region as high pressure builds in behind the latest push of Siberian air. Temperatures in the north are at rock-bottom levels, while to the south and east, it’s a little warmer, but no one will see a high above 10C (50F) today. With the air stagnation present, air quality will once again approach dangerous levels across Beijing this afternoon. The stalled tail-end of the most recent frontal system will bring about cloudy skies over eastern China, while the rest of the region enjoys a day filled with sunshine and a few scattered clouds.

CENTRAL

The aforementioned stalled cold front will bring a good chance for clouds and scattered showers over the Ryukyu Islands and Taiwan today, and a weak impulse of energy and moisture streaming in from the southwest will help generate showers over the higher terrain of south-central China this afternoon and will stir up plenty of rainfall over southern China and northern Indochina. Temperatures across the region will be generally mild, with the warmest readings over the southern provinces of China.

SOUTH

The remnants of TD01W continue to spin about to the immediate southwest of the Philippines and are combining with the strong seasonal monsoonal flow to help bring rainfall to the northern Philippines.  Drier air remains over central and southern Indochina, keeping the clouds to a minimum and allowing for very warm afternoon temperatures under plentiful sunshine. To the south, tropical moisture remains locked in, and with the heating of the afternoon sun, could help generate a few scattered thunderstorms over these areas.

TROPICS

The remnants of TD01W look to be recovering a bit to the southwest of the Philippines, while 97W INVEST doesn’t look too good this morning…

TAAG, 11 JAN

TAAG, 11 JAN



The remnant low pressure trough from what was TD01W appears to be getting its act back together a bit over the Palawan Island group of the southwestern Philippines. This system is projected to remain weak as it gets caught up in the strong flow of the seasonal northeast monsoon, getting pushed down towards southern Vietnam in the coming days. 97W INVEST remains weak, and is not looking as healthy as it was yesterday. Long-range forecasts keep this system very weak as it takes a path very similar to the one 01W followed, ringing rainfall into the southern and central Philippines later this week.

Elsewhere across the tropics, showers and thunderstorms will be more plentiful in western Micronesia, care of 97W INVEST, while some scattered pockets of instability will ring a chance of rain to eastern Micronesia and the Marshall Islands. Continental air intrusion will also kick up a few showers over Wake Island, while high pressure keeps the skies mostly clear over the Mariana Islands. For more information on the tropics, please refer to the “Western Pacific Tropical Update” by meteorologist Mike Adcock on this website.
