Detailed Forecast

Synopsis

Trade winds will prevail through the forecast period, but will be on the lighter side today through the weekend. The trade winds will periodically deliver clouds and showers to windward areas, with the potential for increased showers at times over the weekend. The shower activity will decrease and the trades will strengthen on Monday, with breezy trades and typical windward focused showers expected Tuesday through Thursday.

Discussion

Currently at the surface, high pressure systems are centered to the distant north and northeast of the islands, with a weak front in between these two features, located around 700 miles north of Kauai. Infrared satellite imagery shows partly cloudy skies across most of the state, with a bit more cloud coverage over some windward areas as well as leeward Big Island. Radar imagery shows scattered showers moving into windward areas, with a shower or two making the trip over the mountains and into leeward communities at times. Main short term focus revolves around trade wind trends and rain chances.
Trade winds will continue to ease today as a front far north of the state makes southward progress, but are expected to hold at moderate levels. The trades will ease further over the weekend as the front continues its slow southward push. Light to moderate trades will prevail, with daytime sea breezes and overnight land breezes developing in some leeward areas. The front is expected to dissipate several hundred miles north of the islands Sunday night, with high pressure then becoming more dominant to the distant north. This should allow the trade winds to strengthen back to moderate levels statewide on Monday, then ramp up to breezy levels Tuesday through Thursday as the high strengthens to the north-northeast of the island chain.
As for the remaining weather details, some deeper moisture will work southwestward into the islands today, while an upper level trough shifts southward and closer to the island chain. This should bring a slight increase in windward showers today, and possibly allow for a few leeward showers to develop in the afternoon. The upper trough will remain nearly stationary just north of Kauai tonight, then close off into an upper level low near or over the western islands this weekend. This should keep showers a bit more active over windward areas, and allow for some leeward shower development each afternoon in the weakened trade wind regime. A plume of deeper moisture should result in an increase in shower coverage as it moves into the eastern end of the state on Saturday, then spreads to the rest of the state by Sunday, before slowly exiting from east to west across the island chain Sunday night and Monday. A more typical less showery trade wind pattern will resume late Monday through Thursday.

Aviation

With high pressure weakening far north of the islands, northeast to east trade winds will ease into the light to moderate range over the next few days. Areas of showers, with accompanying MVFR conditions in lower ceilings and visibilities, will mainly affect windward and mauka sections from time to time, especially in the late night and early morning hours. And with winds decreasing, cloud buildups are also likely in leeward sections during the afternoon and early evening, most particularly on the Kona side of the Big Island. Overall, however, VFR will prevail.
No AIRMETs are in effect, though one or more may be needed later this morning for mountain obscurations affecting the isles.

Marine

Trade winds will remain gentle to moderate the next few days as low pressure along with a front passes far northeast of the islands. These features will weaken the pressure gradient enough to generally maintain weakened breezes through the weekend. Trades are expected to restrengthen early next week. Winds will likely achieve Small Craft Advisory magnitudes over the more windier eastern island bays and channels by Monday.
Surf along all shores will remain below surf advisory thresholds through the forecast period. South facing shore surf will stay steady through Saturday with a new long period south swell forecast to arrive Sunday. This swell will peak early work week south shore surf to or above head high through the middle of the week. This recent weakness in the trades will keep eastern facing shore wind wave winds and chop down. A small, low period northeast swell will pass through the islands from late Saturday into Monday and provide a small boost to early week north and east facing shore surf.
