Detailed Forecast

Synopsis

A high pressure ridge will remain in place far north of the Hawaiian Islands producing moderate to breezy trade winds through the week. Passing showers will favor windward and mountain areas in this pattern with lower chances for showers over leeward locations. Periods of high level cirrus clouds are also expected through the week.

Discussion

A high pressure ridge far north of the main Hawaiian Islands will keep moderate to breezy trade winds in the forecast through the week. A narrow upper trough shown on water vapor imagery just north of the state will help to weaken the trade wind inversion, leading to higher shower coverage. Two low level troughs will move through the islands from Monday to Thursday enhancing local area showers a bit. A subtropical jet near the islands will produce periods of high level cirrus ice clouds through the week improving sunrise and sunset colors.
A moderate to breezy trade winds weather pattern will keep mostly fair weather in the forecast with passing showers favoring windward and mountain areas. Shower activity will trend higher windward locations in the overnight to early morning hours.
Model streamlines are showing a low level (700 mb) trough, currently near 146W, approaching the islands from the east. Wind convergence on the eastern side of this trough should spread enhanced showers Westward from the Big Island to Kauai on Monday. Another weak low level trough moves through the state on Wednesday enhancing local shower activity into Thursday.

Aviation

Locally strong trade winds, combined with modest instability supplied by a nearby upper-level trough, will result in active trade wind showers this morning, primarily over and near Kauai and Oahu. While VFR conditions will prevail, periods of MVFR VIS/CIG in SHRA are expected, and AIRMET Sierra for mountain obscuration is posted for N thru E sections of those islands, but clearing from E to W is expected later this morning. AIRMET Tango for low-level turbulence over and downstream of the terrain will remain posted for all islands.

Marine

As a weak surface trough far northwest of the state travels west, ridging will reestablish itself from the northeast. Northern high pressure will strengthen and move east the next few days. This will keep the northeast-to-southwest pressure gradient across the local waters tight enough to support moderate to fresh easterly trade winds the next several days. Locally strong trades has expanded the ongoing Small Craft Advisory in both time and space to include all of the waters from the Kaiwi Channel eastward through Monday afternoon.
Background southerly swell will maintain small surf along south facing shorelines through the middle of the week. A slight strengthening of easterly trades in the coming days will hold short period, slightly elevated wind waves along many eastern exposures. A series of gales traveling north and east of New Zealand will send swells northward within Hawaii’s southern swell window. These long period, small south swells may arrive sometime next weekend and provide a minor boost to southern shore surf.

HFO Watches/Warnings/Advisories

Small Craft Advisory until 6 PM HST Monday for all eastern waters and channels.
