...INTERTROPICAL CONVERGENCE ZONE/MONSOON TROUGH...

The monsoon trough is along 10N98W to 08N106W to a 1010 mb low pressure center that is near 09N110W, to 10N115W, 08N123W, AND 08N125W. The ITCZ continues from 08N125W to 08N128W, to 07N132W, and beyond 09N140W. Convective precipitation: scattered to numerous strong from 06N to 08N between 100W and 103W.

A 1011 mb low pressure center is near 11N119W. Convective precipitation: scattered moderate from 08N to 13N between 103W and 110W.

A 1010 mb low pressure center is near 08N110W. Convective precipitation: Numerous strong from 08N to 09N between 104W and 106W...from 06N to 08N between 106W and 107W...and from 10N to 11N between 109W and 110W. Scattered moderate to isolated strong elsewhere from 03N to 12N between 103W and 114W.

A tropical wave is along 12N92W 09N94W 05N95W. Scattered to numerous strong from 05N to 08N between 93W and 97W. Scattered moderate to isolated strong from 04N to 08N between 91W and 93W.

...DISCUSSION...

A cold front is about 240 nm to the west of 140w. The front is being blocked by a surface ridge, that is along 20N110W 22N120W 26N132W beyond 32N135W. The forecast is for the front to become stationary during the next 36 to 48 hours.

A 1011 mb low pressure center is near 11N119W. The low center is forecast to move southeastward during the next 48 hours, and become comparatively weaker than it is now. It is forecast to merge with the 1011 mb low pressure center that currently is near 08N110W. The wind speeds that will accompany this low center will reach 20 kt or less for the next 48 hours. Expect the sea heights to range from 8 feet to 10 feet from 02N to 20N between 110W and 131W during the next two days.

A 1010 mb low pressure center is near 08N110W. The low center is forecast to be quasi-stationary, moving a bit to the south at first and then a bit to the north during the last half of the 48- hour forecast period. The wind speeds will reach 20 to 25 knots after about the first 12 hours, and then remain at 20 to 25 knots until the end of the forecast period. The sea heights will range from 8 feet to 9 feet for the first half of 48-hour forecast period, and then range from 8 feet to 10 feet during day two, from the equator to 13N between 90W and 110W.
