SYNOPTIC DISCUSSION
SATURDAY 25th MAY 2024 – PM SHIFT

TONIGHT AND TOMORROW:
Residents of Samoa should expect isolated showers, potential brief moderate rainfall, and a few thunderstorms through tomorrow due to the lingering trough of low pressure. The movement of an upper trough from Fiji will likely bring additional moisture and enhance the current weather system. Keep an eye on local weather updates for the latest information.

MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY:
The easterly wind flow will dominate the weather at the beginning of the long-term forecast.  A trough of low pressure migrating from the west will arrive by Wednesday, leading to some scattered showers on Wednesday and Thursday. By Friday, a ridge building from the southwest will enter the area, introducing brisk trades and showers for the latter part of the forecast period.

MARINE OUTLOOK:
The latest wave observations indicated wave heights of 1.5-2.5 metres and are expected to remain below the advisory threshold throughout the outlook periods.

ADVISORY/WARNING:
NONE.
