Detailed Forecast

Synopsis

Breezy to locally strong trades will focus cloud and showers over windward and mauka areas through Tuesday. The arrival of remnant moisture from a decaying tropical system will favor an increase in shower coverage Wednesday and Thursday.

Discussion

Opted to post a Wind Advisory for portions of the Big Island, Maui and Kahoolawe today and tonight. Bradshaw on the Big Island briefly touched advisory criteria yesterday. The high resolution models still show a small uptick today and tonight. The ASCAT pass missed the islands overnight, so decision was based on model guidance. It is expected to be a low end and short lived event.
As expected, there has been shower activity focused on the windward sides of the islands overnight. Several windward rain gages on the Big Island got a third to half an inch of rain overnight. Satellite derived precipitable water, and satellite imagery suggest a drier and more stable airmass moving over the islands later today, so expect shower activity to be on a downward trend today.
Mid to upper level ridging will be overhead over the next couple of days, helping to maintain a stable airmass over the islands. Combined with the drier airmass moving in, expect this relatively drier period to last into midweek. This may further suppress the inversion, which could cause an uptick in winds for the typical windier locations in Maui County and on the Big Island on Sunday. The overnight sounding at Hilo showed a higher inversion than yesterday afternoon, so time will tell how much of an impact it will have on the Big Island winds today.
The remnants of former tropical cyclone Bonnie look to arrive near the islands midweek. Have boosted the QPF towards the National Blend of Models for Wednesday and Thursday, but felt the existing PoPs were still in line with the global models, with the focus of the showers being the Big Island and Maui County.
In the East Pacific, Tropical Storm Darby is forecast to move to the west over the next 5 days, and enter the Central Pacific basin at 140W sometime late Thursday. Any local impacts from Darby would not be anticipated until next weekend, and its much too early to discern any of those impact with any certainty. See bulletins issued by the National Hurricane Center in Miami for the latest on Darby.

Aviation

A high pressure system far north of the islands will continue to produce breezy trade winds across the region. Passing showers will continue to produce brief periods of MVFR conditions over windward airfields, elsewhere VFR conditions will prevail.
AIRMET Sierra in effect for mountain obscuration for N thru E sections of Maui and the Big Island. Sierra will likely continue through the early morning hours.
AIRMET Tango remains in effect for moderate low level turbulence over and downwind of island mountain ranges. Tango will continue at least through tonight.

Marine

Large surface high pressure anchored far north of the islands will maintain a tight enough pressure gradient back toward the state to continue support of sustained fresh to locally strong trade winds. A Small Craft Advisory (SCA) remains in effect for the windier bays and channels around Maui and Big Island. An SCA is also in effect for the windward Maui and leeward Maui and Oahu coastal waters through at least early Monday morning.
A small, short period southeast swell will travel through the nearshore waters from Monday into late week. Along with the arrival of new southern swell forerunners, this will slightly bump up surf along more eastern and southern exposures Monday. Several pulses of long period south swell are expected to arrive through the week. These swells will generate near to above normal summertime southern facing shore surf heights. A slightly higher, long period south swell will begin arriving Monday afternoon and peak Tuesday and Wednesday's surf. Long range guidance has a gale low passing east of New Zealand early Tuesday that will provide a nice source or fetch region for even higher southern swell. This larger swell may produce High Surf Advisory level surf along southern exposures when it reaches the islands next weekend. Trades will continue to push relatively small, short period wind waves onto east facing shores. Small, medium period east swell emanating from former Hurricane Bonnie may arrive Monday and Tuesday.
