Detailed Forecast

Synopsis

Light to moderate trades will give way to land and sea breezes in leeward and sheltered locations through this week. High stability and limited moisture will limit shower coverage and rainfall amounts during this time. Trades will potentially strengthen during the weekend.

Discussion

Land breezes have allowed skies to clear over most areas early this morning. Light to moderate trades are focusing very limited clouds over windward zones at press time with no meaningful shower activity evident on the local radar composite. High stability evident by the low inversion on this morning's soundings will favor continued dry conditions through today. Upstream, the CIMSS PWAT analysis confirms model depictions of a pool of slightly deeper moisture residing along the 150th meridian. This area of slightly decreased stability and greater low-level moisture will work through the forecast area late tonight into early Tuesday leading to a relative increase in windward showers Monday night followed by increased leeward clouds during peak heating Tuesday. Isolated afternoon showers will be possible but coverage and intensity will be limited.
Further upstream, the much drier airmass seen slowly advancing toward the islands from the east will become established over the forecast area Tuesday through the weekend. Through about Friday, light to moderate trades will allow the sea breeze to focus limited moisture over leeward and/or interior locales. Increased afternoon clouds and an isolated shower or two each afternoon will give way to overnight land breezes and clearing skies.

Aviation

High pressure to the north continues to bring a stable, locally moderate trade wind pattern to the islands. Clouds and showers will be focused on the windward sides of the islands, and could produce some MVFR conditions at times. Otherwise, VFR conditions are expected to prevail. Afternoon clouds and some showers are likely over the Big Island leeward slopes. No AIRMETs are in effect, but will be monitoring windward sides of the islands for possible mountain obscuration.

Marine

A high pressure ridge north of the region will keep gentle to moderate trade winds in the forecast through Friday. Wind speeds are currently forecast to remain just below Small Craft Advisory (SCA) thresholds over the windier eastern waters this week. The ridge will build north of the area starting on Friday night with trade winds increasing into the moderate to breezy range, reaching SCA thresholds over the windier eastern waters around Maui and Hawaii Counties on Saturday and Sunday.
A series of small, medium period south swells will keep small surf in place along south facing shores through Friday with a slight decreasing trend in south shore surf heights from Friday into Sunday. A small, medium period swell will keep north and west facing shore surf heights elevated into Tuesday with declining northwest swell energy from Wednesday through Friday. Eastern facing shores will see small wind wave chop during this period of weaker trades with increasing east shore surf heights through the weekend as trade winds strengthen.
