KWAJALEIN FORECAST DISCUSSION

*****THE WEBSITE BANNER IS DOWN, PLEASE SEE THE TV ROLLER OR CALL 3347 FOR UP-TO-DATE WARNING INFORMATION.***** Quiet conditions this morning, with mostly cloudy skies and isolated showers, are expected to give way to a much more active afternoon. An Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) wave is expected to interact with a Tropical Upper Tropospheric Trough (TUTT) to generate deep convection over Kwajalein Atoll. Cool air aloft will also help contribute to glaciation, with conditions favorable for thunderstorms by this afternoon. Several thunderstorms have been observed along the Ralik chain as the wave pushes closer to the Ratak chain. Overall, scattered to perhaps numerous showers, along with a few thunderstorms, are expected for this afternoon and this evening. Conditions should taper this evening as the ITCZ wave propagates out of the region. The TUTT will move out of the region by Tuesday morning. Additional ITCZ waves are expected to move across the atoll over the coming work week, bringing more showers, however thunderstorm coverage is expected to decline back to stary without a substantial upper-level influence. Shower coverage will be 10% this morning, increasing to 60% this afternoon, then tapering to 30% this evening, and finally tapering to 10% after midnight. Thunderstorm coverage will be 15% this afternoon and 1% this evening. Combined seas on the open ocean will be 4-6 feet. BMK
