Not very much going on right now in Asia. Typical weather continues across southern and eastern portions of Asia. The first strong front will move through central Asia later this week, although most of the precipitation will fall as rain because of how high temperatures still are. The most significant events right now are occurring in Vietnam, with continued heavy rainfall and Turkey, which is in a bit of a dry spell.
On the Korean peninsula, the growing season has ended on a dry note. Although the dryness likely facilitated crop harvesting in North Korea, it also may limit water availability during the winter. We will have to wait and see what kind of precipitation falls during the coming months.
