Abstract : This article studies a special type of weather phenomenon associated with the leeward slope of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau-- the Yunnan early rainy season. It discusses weather systems which directly create continuous precipitation as well as the special characteristics of their seasonal development. Diagnostic analysis of static energies clearly show that there are areas of difference between the Yunnan early rainy season and the arrival of the subsequent Indian monsoon with the beginning of its rainy season. It was discovered that there is a correlation between the period of the beginning of the early rainy season each year and the period of the appearance of the first storms in the Bay of Bengal. Finally, it discusses the relationships between this and seasonal changes in East Asian atmospheric circulation. (AN)
