KWAJALEIN FORECAST DISCUSSION

A strong trough associated with the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) is causing low-level convergence along the western RMI, which led to scattered showers throughout the morning and now into the afternoon for Kwajalein Atoll. In the near future, little development is upstream to the east as upper level dry, sinking air persists making for widely scattered showers during the mid and late afternoon. This reprieve from showers appears to be short; however, as more convergent flow moves in from the south, increasing showers back to a scattered distribution tonight through tomorrow morning. Winds will stay in the low teens shifting from easterly flow early to more southeasterly flow by tonight. Cloud coverage will be moderate throughout forecast period, heavily dependent on nearby shower activity. Shower coverage will be 40% in the early afternoon, 20% in the mid afternoon and early evening and 40% tonight and overnight. Combined seas on the open ocean will be 4-6 feet. WEH
