Kwajalein Atoll Forecast

OVERNIGHT FORECAST FOR

Wednesday, January 20, 2021

 

KWAJALEIN FORECAST DISCUSSION

Mostly dry and windy conditions continue for the RMI. The subtropical ridge to the north is slowly weakening, meaning a gradual decrease in wind speed across Kwajalein Atoll for the rest of the week. Current model forecasts indicate speeds falling to the mid-teens by the end of the week. With the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) located to the south of the RMI and dry, sinking air aloft locally, expect only a light shower or two to pop up across the atoll with mostly clear skies. During the overnight hours, shower activity will increase slightly to stray coverage due to nocturnal instability. Shower coverage will be <10% tonight and tomorrow. Combined seas on the open ocean will be 7-9 feet. BDC
