Daily weather brief – Tuesday, January 10, 2017

NWPAC outlook, 10 JAN

NWPAC outlook, 10 JAN



NORTH

Bone-chilling cold has settled in over the northern half of the north region as a new Siberian surge moves through the region. Temperatures region-wide will be frigid, with eastern China and Japan seeing the warmest readings as highs struggle to reach double-digits. The saving grace will be that, aside from sea-effect snow along the western prefectures and higher terrain of the Japanese archipelago, most locations will see just some scattered clouds and plenty of sunshine.

CENTRAL 

High pressure to the north associated with the latest cold air surge from Siberia will start to build into the central region over the next 48 hours, helping to lower temperatures across the region. Clouds and showers will continue across offshore locations in the region, and some heavier rain is likely over southern China and northern Indochina as moisture streams in from the southwest. Temperatures will be seasonably mild across the region, with readings in the upper teens (low-60’s F) to low 20’s (low 70’s F).

TAAG. 10 JAN

TAAG. 10 JAN



Tropical depression 01W has been sheared apart as it passed over the Philippines this weekend, with remnant moisture from the now-defunct system washing out over the central and northern half of the Philippine archipelago. A new disturbance has now cropped up to the east in the form of 97W INVEST, and long-range forecast models show little development of this system as it tracks in a very similar fashion as the previous system.

97W. 10 JAN

Elsewhere across the region, plentiful moisture will combine with the warm sunshine to bring about a good chance for showers and scattered thunderstorms across much of the region, especially in western Micronesia where 97W INVEST is located.

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.

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.

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.

Weekend weather brief – January 7/8, 2017

NORTH

High pressure will build into the northernmost reaches of the north region today, keeping temperatures frigid over Mongolia, northern China, and southeastern Russia. This high pressure will continue to strengthen over the next several days, ushering in some of the season’s coldest air next week. Air quality will be hazardous in Beijing and north-central China as light winds and stagnant air remain in place. One weak impulse of energy is moving through northern Japan, while another weak storm system will exit central China into the Korean peninsula and Japan this weekend, bringing a good chance for showers and occasional heavy rainfall to these areas. Eastern China will also see a rather damp weekend as the tail-end of a stalled frontal boundary lingers overhead.

CENTRAL

Moisture streaming in from the southwest will combine with a weak impulse of energy moving through central and eastern China, and a stalled frontal boundary just offshore, to bring a good chance for clouds and showers to much of the region this weekend. The best conditions will be along the coast of southeastern China, where a mix of clouds and sun are on tap. Temperatures will be seasonably warm this weekend ahead of a cool-down that will arrive next week.

The south region will see a mixed bag of weather as the drier air moderates a bit over Indochina, and a new tropical disturbance brings clouds and rain to the southern Philippines, while the northern Philippines enjoys a mix of clouds and sunshine. Skies over the Southeast Asian peninsula will clear on Sunday, while areas to the south remain enveloped in deep tropical moisture both days. Temperatures will be seasonably warm across the region with the slightly increased solar angle as the sun begins its daily climb to the north in earnest.

TROPICS 

Tropical disturbance 96W INVEST has been declared tropical depression “Auring” by PAGASA…continues to threaten the southern Philippines with a rainy weekend…

96W INVEST is looking a little healthier this weekend as the Philippines’ state weather agency PAGASA designates the system tropical depression “Auring”. The system will bring copious amounts of rainfall to the island of Mindanao and the southern Visayas of the Philippines, which could use the rain following an extended period of drought, but needs that rain to be slow and steady to avoid any major ill-effects. Some localized flooding and landslides are possible, due in part to the predominantly mountainous terrain that dominates the islands. PAGASA has issued the following TCWS signals:

TCWS#1 (30-60kph expected in 36 hrs)

Agusan del Sur, Agusan del Norte, Surigao del Sur, Surigao del Norte and Dinagat Island Province.

Current forecast models are indicating that this system will remain weak as it passes through the archipelago and into the Sulu Sea early next week. For more information on this system, please refer to the “Western Pacific Tropical Update” by meteorologist Mike Adcock on this site.

The remainder of the tropics will see a good chance for showers and scattered thunderstorms as tropical moisture dominates locales below 10 degrees latitude, and incursions of instability from continental air masses affect more northerly locales.

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.

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.
