NOON FORECAST FOR

Friday, March 01, 2024

 

KWAJALEIN FORECAST DISCUSSION

Dry, breezy conditions are expected across the Kwajalein Atoll today and tonight. Subtropical ridging to the north is leading to very dry, sinking air in the upper atmosphere.  Only stray showers are expected today and tonight, and any showers should be brief and light.  This dry pattern should continue through the extended period, with only minimal shower chances due to nocturnal instability. Winds will be in the mid-upper teens and out of the northeast as the subtropical ridge to the northeast leads to a tight pressure gradient across the RMI. Winds will remain elevated throughout the extended period, with speeds in the low 20s possible at times.  Waves will be increasing somewhat over the next couple days but are not expected to reach hazardous levels.  Shower coverage will be <10% for today and tonight. Combined seas on the open ocean will be 5-7 ft. SMS
