Weather forecast for the Asia-Pacific region

Weather forecast for the Asia-Pacific region

Tropical Storm Kulap will strengthen to a Category 1 storm southeast of Okinawa by Friday evening. A subtropical ridge of high pressure will put Kulap on a northwestward track during the next couple of days, bringing it into the East China Sea by Saturday.
The current forecast track has Kulap remaining at Category 1 strength through the weekend. It is expected to make landfall with the coast of China's northern Zhejiang province.
Meanwhile, strong flow from the southwest will usher moisture across South Korea and Japan. This will translate into chances of scattered showers in South Korea and coastal low clouds along the coasts of islands of Japan.
Showers will become more likely in Japan on Saturday.
To the south, warm tropical moisture over southeastern China will keep periodic showers and hot temperatures over the region through the day.
For Australia, showers along the coasts of New South Wales and Victoria will wind down through the day as a strong storm system moves further off the coast and into the Tasman Sea. This system will pack a lot of moisture as it travels toward New Zealand.
Strong wind with widely scattered showers and periods of heavy rainfall will reach the New Zealand coast late Saturday night/early Sunday morning.
Back in Australia, a cold front to the south of the nation will keep chances of showers in Tasmania and along the southern coast of Victoria. Elsewhere, high pressure moves into the Great Australian Bight with fair weather conditions.
