Abstract:

This article discusses the large scale circulation of the East Asian Mei-Yu fronts as well as their secondary weather dimension or subsynoptic disturbances. It brings out the following points. The East Asian Mei-Yu is a phenomenon produced in the transition belt between Indian monsoon systems and the north Pacific Hadley or tradewind systems. Mei-Yu fronts are semi-tropical and semi-extratropical weather systems by nature. There is a relationship between the development of Mei-Yu front torrential rains and previous mei-yu front weather dimension or subsynoptic disturbances. MM
