NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service tiyan GU 
704 am chst Thursday Oct 2 2014 


Marianas synopsis... 
Typhoon Phanfone continues moving northwestward away from the 
marianas. Monsoon trough heads southeastward from Phanfone to 
link up with a developing tropical disturbance centered near 
Kosrae. Low-level winds converging south of the trough axis are 
generating scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms over the 
forecast zones. 


&& 


Discussion... 
forecast follows persistence with several adjustments. Models 
generally agree in keeping the area of low-level convergence in 
the vicinity through Friday night. Have increased probability of precipitation to 
scattered accordingly for this time frame. Weak ridging between 
Phanfone and the disturbance will reduce shower coverage Saturday 
and Sunday... then weather deteriorates once again as the Kosrae 
disturbance approaches. Models generally track the disturbance 
north of Saipan on Monday and Monday night. For now...will assume 
the disturbance passes north of Saipan and have capped wind 
speeds during the time of passage of the disturbance in the 20 to 
25-knot range. If the disturbance develops as prognosticated by the 
models...wind grids may have to be beefed up for the first half 
of next week. Model solutions maintain vigorous monsoonal flow 
across the marianas during the second half of next week...so have 
updated the wind grids accordingly. 


&& 


Marine... 
winds and seas have subsided below advisory levels...so have 
dropped the Small Craft Advisory. Primary southwest swell 
continue to verify in the vicinity of 6 feet with a 10-second 
period...so will maintain high surf advisory for south and west 
-facing reefs. Still expect long period swell to subside enough 
to allow surf to fall below advisory levels on Saturday. 


&& 


Eastern micronesia... 
for Majuro...better weather is expected today. Scattered showers 
and isolated thunderstorms are seen over the ralik chain closer 
to the eastern edge of a tropical disturbance centered just east 
of Kosrae...while calmer conditions are seen along the ratak 
chain. 


Isolated showers and thunderstorms are expected for the long-term 
across the region as models maintain unsettled conditions. 
GFS...in particular...forecasts another disturbance to reach the 
Marshalls Friday night or Saturday...moving west across Kosrae 
and Pohnpei states Sunday and Monday. 


For Kosrae...infrared satellite shows widespread showers and 
thunderstorms across the region associated with a tropical 
disturbance. The jtwc has opened 90w invest on this disturbance... 
which is centered east-northeast of Kosrae near 6n165e. Numerous 
showers and isolated thunderstorms are expected today on Kosrae. 
This weather will continue on Kosrae through Friday night as 90w 
tracks west- northwestward. 12z ascat pass shows 20 to 25 knots winds 
east and southeast of the center...lighter winds are seen west of 
the center across Kosrae state. Main short term weather concern 
will be rainfall...with 3 to 5 inches possible through Friday 
night. Northwest winds today will back to the southwest tonight 
and Friday with wind speeds increasing and generating choppier 
seas across the state. 90w will need to be closely monitored as it 
is expected to gradually develop during the next few days. 


Scattered showers were added to the Pohnpei forecast for today 
through Friday as weather associated with 90w has already 
overspread parts of the state. Northwest winds will gradually 
shift to southwest by Saturday as the disturbance passes north. 


&& 


Western micronesia... 
Chuuk lies in the area of fair weather between the broad monsoon 
pattern south of Typhoon Phanfone and jtwc invest area 90w near 
Kosrae. Pleasant weather with light and variable winds will 
persist the next few days there. Models track 90w toward the 
west- northwest during the next few days. 90w would then pass 
north of Chuuk Sunday and Monday. Isolated thunderstorms are 
possible Monday as the monsoon strengthens across Chuuk state in 
response to 90w. 


For Koror and Yap...a wet monsoon pattern is prognosticated to continue 
through the weekend. Showers have subsided this morning but infrared 
satellite animation shows another surge of showers and 
thunderstorms firing up west of Yap and north of Koror. 
Therefore...scattered showers are expected to resume this morning 
after the brief overnight lull. The monsoon pattern is expected 
to persist the next few days well south of Phanfone...being 
reinvigorated later in the weekend by the next tropical 
disturbance which is now located near Kosrae. Will have to see 
just how exactly 90w will evolve the next few days. Future track 
and evolution of 90w becomes increasingly uncertain. Therefore... 
long term forecast confidence for Koror and Yap is low. 


Ascat shows a swath of 20 to 25 knots winds spreading across Yap 
state and 15 to 20 knots winds across Palau. Models keep these winds 
in place the next few days. As a result...monsoon swell will 
continue to build. Swell will generate hazardous surf of 8 to 10 
feet today along south and west facing reefs. Wave model shows 
this swell subsiding by the weekend...but surf will hover at or 
just below advisory levels at least until next week. A building 
north swell will be arriving Sunday or Monday from the distant 
Typhoon Phanfone.

Gum watches/warnings/advisories... 
GU...high surf advisory until 6 am chst Saturday for guz001>004. 


Marianas waters...none.
