International 15 day Outlook for East Asia:
Day 1-3: The period will start with a strong area of high pressure over Eastern China which will bring partly cloudy skies to the region, while a storm system moves through Northern Japan creating wide spread snow along the West coast of Japan and showers further south into the Kyushu region. A few showers will be over the Philippians at this time as well. The middle of the period will have high pressure moving over far Eastern China and will bring partly cloudy skies to the Korean peninsula, while snow showers still encompass portions of Northern Japan. The period will finish with high pressure moving into Japan and another low pressure area beginning to shift into Eastern China which will bring showers to the coast.
Day 4-6: The period will begin with a low pressure area moving towards Western Japan which will bring rain and snow to portions of Japan and the associated frontal boundary will bring rain and snow all the way back into Eastern China and the Korea’s. Day five will see the frontal boundary stall out from Japan all the way into Okinawa and southward towards Taiwan, this will bring rain showers to the regions, however a few snow showers can’t be ruled out near the higher elevations of Mt. Fuji in Japan. The period will end with high pressure over Japan and the Korea’s which will bring nice weather to the regions, while a weak frontal boundary moves through Northeast Russia and will bring some light snow to the region.
Day 7-10: The frontal boundary will push out of Northeast Russian and bring some light snow to the northern part of Japan for places like Sapporo. High pressure will be over the majority of the region from Central Japan westward into Eastern China. A few afternoon showers will be possible over the Northern Philippians during this time as well. By day eight another storm system will be moving over Eastern China and begin to start impacting the Korea’s and Western Japan with showers and cooler temps. While a few pesky snow showers will still be found over Northern Japan and Northeast Russia during this time. Day nine will have an area of low pressure over Southeast Japan which will bring showers to the area and higher elevation snows as well. High pressure will build in over Eastern China and bring nice weather to the region including the Korea’s, while a few showers will be found over the Northern part of the Philippians. Day ten the frontal boundary will extend over portions of Japan as the low moves out to the Northeast, this will create colder conditions for Japan and windy conditions, while high pressure will remain over Eastern China and the Korea’s.
