KWAJALEIN FORECAST DISCUSSION

Quiet weather will develop over Kwajalein Atoll today, following the abnormal active weather observed north of and over the northern atoll yesterday morning.  The Intertropical Convergence Zone developed north of Kwajalein Atoll over the last evening and does not indicate any southerly movement over the rest of the weekend.  Dry air in the upper atmosphere will cap most showers from developing and lead to mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies.  Winds will remain somewhat uncertain; the doldrums located south of ITCZ activity will persist today, and rapid wind directional changes are expected over the next few days.  While today is likely to be very dry, expect shower coverage to gradually increase through the week as wind speeds become more variable.  Shower coverage will be <10% today and 10% tonight.  Combined seas on the open ocean will be 1-3 ft.  AJP
