AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TIYAN GU
345 PM CHST FRI MAY 29 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
A WEAK CIRCULATION HAS PASSED FARTHER TO THE WEST OF THE MARIANAS
NEAR 15N142E. CLOUDS AND SHOWERS EXTEND EASTWARD ALONG A SURFACE
TROUGH WITH A FEW THUNDERSTORMS SEEN NORTH AND NORTHEAST OF SAIPAN
WATERS.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
NOT MUCH CHANGE TO THE FORECAST SCENARIO FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL
DAYS. WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO WEAKEN TONIGHT AND REMAIN FAIRLY LIGHT
THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT. MODEL TIME-HEIGHT CROSS-SECTION INDICATES
WINDS WILL BE LIGHT ENOUGH SATURDAY THAT A THUNDERSTORM OR TWO
COULD DEVELOP NEAR GUAM DURING THE AFTERNOON SO HAVE ADDED IN A
SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDER FOR THEN. OTHERWISE...QUIET WEATHER IS
EXPECTED INTO NEXT WEEK. BOTH GFS AND ECMWF HINT AT INCREASING
MOISTURE ACROSS THE AREA AFTER TUESDAY AS WEAK SOUTHEAST WINDS
PUSH UP NORTH OF 10N. A WEAK UPPER-LEVEL LOW PASSING WESTWARD OVER
THE MARIANAS EARLY NEXT WEEK MAY ALSO HELP TO INCREASE CONVECTION
IN THE REGION.

&&

.EASTERN MICRONESIA...WILL BE SENT LATER.

&&

.WESTERN MICRONESIA...WILL BE SENT LATER.

&&

.GUM WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
