Kwajalein Atoll Forecast

OVERNIGHT FORECAST FOR

Thursday, June 30, 2022

 

KWAJALEIN FORECAST DISCUSSION

A tropical wave embedded within an active Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) is producing areas of numerous shower activity throughout the RMI. Currently, the atmosphere around Kwajalein Atoll is recovering after a line of showers passed through the atoll. However, another round of numerous showers and stray thunderstorms are developing eastward from the Ratak chain associated with an outflow boundary, and are expected to reach Kwajalein Atoll around midnight. Another period of quieter widely scattered shower conditions is expected during the pre-dawn to early morning hours before a broader region of convergence envelops the atoll and produces scattered to numerous showers, along with a stray thunderstorm or two, through much of the day Friday. A period of reprieve is possible Friday evening into Saturday as a subtle surface ridge develops across the RMI. Periods of showery activity, heavy at times, will be likely during the weekend due to the proximity of the ITCZ, however, precise timing of disturbances is uncertain at this point. Winds tonight and tomorrow will be east-northeasterly in the mid tens. Shower coverage will increase to 60% around midnight and fall to 20% during the pre-dawn hours. Shower coverage will increase to 60% for tomorrow. Combined seas on the open ocean will be 3-5 ft. BMK
