Detailed Forecast

Synopsis

Moderate to locally breezy trade winds will prevail through the week. A typical summertime weather pattern will focus clouds and showers over windward slopes. Aside from afternoon showers over the Kona slopes of the Big Island, leeward areas will be rather dry.

Discussion

Locally breezy trades and a typical summertime rainfall pattern will continue through the week. A persistent mid level ridge will keep stable conditions in place, with an inversion holding around 6,000 to 8,000 ft. As a result, trade winds will focus modest showers over windward slopes. Rainfall at most windward sites will generally be less than a quarter of an inch each day, but pockets of moisture within the trade wind flow will periodically boost rainfall. One such pocket will move in tonight and clear out late Thursday morning. Leeward Big Island will see clouds and spotty showers each afternoon, while leeward areas elsewhere will continue to experience little rainfall accumulation.

Aviation

Breezy to locally strong trade winds continue, with AIRMET Tango for low-level turbulence over and downwind of the terrain of all islands in effect for the foreseeable future.
Clouds and showers have continued to favor windward and mauka areas and have been rather persistent overnight resulting in periods of mountain obscuration. Expect AIRMET Sierra to remain in effect for windward portions of all islands through the morning hours, with conditions improving this afternoon. Otherwise, VFR conditions will prevail across the state.

Marine

High pressure north or the state will keep moderate to locally strong trade winds in place through the forecast period, with only minor fluctuations in strength. A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect for the typically windy waters around Maui and the Big Island through 6 PM this evening.
Only small surf is expected through this weekend along south facing shores. A new small, long-period south swell could give south shore surf a small boost early next week. A much larger long- period south swell is forecast to arrive late next week (Thursday 7/28), potentially pushing south shore surf back up above advisory levels.
Steady trade wind swell will keep east shore surf near to slightly below normal levels during the next 7 days. A small, longer period east swell associated with tropical cyclone Estelle may give surf a small boost over the weekend. North shore surf will remain flat during the next 7 days.

HFO Watches/Warnings/Advisories

Small Craft Advisory until 6 PM HST this evening for Maalaea Bay, Pailolo Channel, Alenuihaha Channel, Big Island Leeward Waters, Big Island Southeast Waters.
