Eastern Asia Weather Easing Up
By the weekend of June 1, 2013, a though a high pressure area will improve conditions as fairer weather rolls in from the west. Not sharing in on the the better weather though is south eastern China where widespread showers are expected as the rainy season front continues to linger over the area. Flooding is going to be high at risk here along with mudslides as the ground is already saturated following the rains this past week. Through Wednesday thus far Guizhou has reported rain totals up to 150mm while Chongqing has seen totals nearing 100mm. Now up to 50-100mm of rainfall is expected through Thursday with isolated areas seeing up to 250cm along the Yangzi River Basin.
As previously reported, another area we are still watching is a active low pressure area in the Bay of Bengal near Bangladesh. Moisture inflow from this area will continue to bring heavy rain through Thursday but thankfully it will weaken off by the weekend. Along with the low there is a continued and serious risk of flooding in coastal areas. On the other hand it is in the beginning stages for the southwest monsoon to start in India which will provide more cooler temperatures.
The Atlantic Hurricane Season starts tomorrow, June 1, 2013, but the worldwide tropical weather seems to be fairly calm at the moment, but with El Nino not assisting with keeping storms at bay this year, storms will develop that can be quite harmful from the tropics.
