KWAJALEIN FORECAST DISCUSSION

Limited shower activity is expected across the Kwajalein Atoll today and tonight.  Subtropical ridging to the north is leading to sinking motion in the upper atmosphere which is working to suppress shower activity.  An area of subtle directional convergence is leading to some areas of isolated shower coverage across the Atoll, and this is likely to continue through today and tonight.  However, these showers should be brief and light.  A relatively dry pattern is expected through the extended period, but some shower chances may present themselves due to additional areas of trade wind convergence, as well as nocturnal instability.  Winds today and tonight will be on the lighter side due to a weakening of the pressure gradient across the RMI, with speeds in the mid-teens expected.  Somewhat breezier conditions are expected tomorrow before winds become lighter again from Monday into the early part of next week. Shower coverage will be around 10% today and tonight. Combined seas on the open ocean will be 5-7 feet. SMS
