Easter & Sakura Blossom Weekend Forecast / 07-08 APRIL 2012 Western Pacific Weather Update

The holiday weekend could not be any more pleasant across the pacific today as no significant weather systems dominate the skies. In South Eastern China including Hong Kong a weak trough of low pressure is dropping rainfall but this toughing reigns alone today. Fair skies dominate the weather pattern in the tropics with the exemption of isolated afternoon to evening rain showers caused by daytime heating.

In Japan the Sakura blossoms are in full bloom resulting in the masses heading out to the parks today to enjoy the spring weekend. Temperatures will remain on the cool side in the Tokyo area but nothing a little bundling up can over come!

 

So, what is your plans for this holiday weekend?
