Weather conditions for the Sea of Japan, East China Sea, Yellow Sea, Sea of Okhotsk, Philippine Sea and western North Pacific Ocean W of 160 deg E are examined. Each of these regions is addressed separately with information directed toward operational forecasters. A general overview chapter provides seasonal climatology charts for the entire area. In most cases, satellite imagery examples are included in discussions of particular weather conditions. These examples provide references for various seasonal atmospheric and oceanic synoptic scale features. Also included are numerous forecast rules that have direct application to naval operational planning. Appendices provide information on local geographic terminology, tropical cyclones, and superstructure icing.
