Detailed Forecast

Synopsis

Mostly dry and stable conditions with light to moderate easterly trade winds will continue through Friday. The best chance for light showers will be overnight through the early morning hours over windward areas. Although leeward cloud coverage may increase through the afternoon hours where localized sea breezes form, rainfall chances will remain limited. A return of breezy trade wind conditions is expected this weekend into early next week.

Discussion

Guidance remains in good agreement and depicts the light to moderate easterly trades holding into Friday, then trending up over the weekend as the ridge strengthens to the north. Limited moisture combined with a strong subsidence inversion around 5000 ft supports the stable conditions persisting each day. This suppressed environment will limit rainfall chances, even with a weak mid- to upper-level trough moving through from east to west Thursday through Friday. Despite some afternoon cloud development over our leeward areas where sea breezes form, very little to no rainfall is anticipated. Windward shower coverage may trend up over the weekend through early next week as breezy trades return.

Aviation

Surface high pressure northeast of the state will allow for light to moderate trades to persist trough the remainder of this morning. With a relatively dry atmosphere will in place, expect only isolated showers to affect mainly windward sides of the islands. By early this afternoon, brief sea breezes may develop along portions of the leeward coasts.
There are currently no AIRMETs in effect and none are anticipated today.

Marine

A ridge will linger north of the islands over the next couple of days causing light to fresh trade winds into Friday for most areas. The ridge is expected to build farther to the north beginning Friday afternoon. Trade winds will then increase into the moderate to locally strong range, reaching the Small Craft Advisory threshold over the windier eastern waters around Maui County and the Big Island Saturday and Sunday.
A series of small, medium period, south swells will keep surf along south facing shores elevated over the next couple of days. Surf heights will drop a bit from Friday into the weekend as south swell energy begins to ease. Long range models show southern hemisphere storms ramping up in the Tasman Sea area over the next few days, perhaps producing another long term boost to south side surf starting Wednesday or Thursday next week.
The current small northwest swell will fade, with declining surf heights along north and west facing shores through Friday. Another small, medium period, northwest swell arrives late Saturday into Sunday. Eastern facing shores will see small wind wave chop through Friday. East shore surf heights will rise through the weekend as trade winds strengthen.
