KWAJALEIN FORECAST DISCUSSION

Kwajalein currently finds itself within somewhat of a no man’s land lying between southeasterly winds and a surface trough approaching the Marshall Islands.  Light and variable winds, as well as periods of calm conditions, are expected as the weather continues to propagate westward.  There may periods of sustained winds from the northeast to east-southeast at light to gentle speeds with higher gusts likely near showers.  Increased atmospheric moisture is expected throughout the night.  Tomorrow morning will see an uptick in moisture causing extensive cloud cover. Thinning cloud cover will produce periods of sunshine to finish the day.  Isolated to widely scattered showers are expected tonight, and develop into widely scattered showers are expected to continue into the morning with stray thunderstorms.  Amidst stratification, shower coverage will decrease to isolated showers later in the afternoon.  Shower coverage will be 15% tonight, 20% tomorrow morning, and 10% tomorrow afternoon.  Combined seas on the open ocean will be 1-3 feet.  TAB
