Plain Language Summary: To reveal a new possible process linking the quasi-stationary Rossby wave propagation over Eurasia along the Asian jet and the Pacific-Japan (PJ) pattern through the Rossby wave breaking (RWB) east of Japan during boreal summer, this study conducts a lag composite analysis of the past 44 RWB events. The results of this paper show that the quasi-stationary Rossby wave propagation along the Asian jet can excite the PJ pattern, through high potential vorticity (PV) intrusion toward the subtropical western North Pacific associated with the RWB and the consequent enhanced convection over the region.
