Detailed Forecast

Synopsis

Moderate to locally breezy trade winds will prevail during the next 7 days. Fairly typical trade wind weather can be expected through the period, featuring windward and mauka showers and the occasional leeward spillover. A nearby upper level low will produce areas of high clouds across the state during the next couple of days.

Discussion

Currently at the surface, a strong area of high pressure is centered a couple thousand miles north of Honolulu, while a weakening frontal boundary is located around 625 miles west- northwest of Kauai. These features are producing moderate to locally breezy easterly trade winds in unsheltered areas early this morning. Infrared satellite imagery shows some mid and high cloud cover moving through the state, with partly to mostly cloudy conditions present in most areas. Radar imagery shows scattered showers moving into Kauai, minimal shower activity in windward areas from Oahu to the Big Island, and a few showers over leeward sections the Big Island. Main short term focus revolves around trade wind trends and rain chances during the next few days.
High pressure to the distant north will shift south- southeastward and closer to the islands during the next few days. Meanwhile, the front west of the state will edge eastward today, then stall out and weaken into a trough early in the work week, before dissipating well northwest of the islands by the middle of the week. A new high will build east-southeastward well to the north of the state during the middle of the week, with a cold front then approaching from the northwest next weekend. Overall, moderate to locally breezy trade winds are expected to prevail through Friday, with only minor fluctuations in strength. The approaching front may ease the trades next weekend.
As for the remaining weather details, the airmass is expected to moisten up slightly today, with fairly typical trade wind weather prevailing through Monday. Showers will continue to favor windward slopes/coasts during this time, with a shower or two reaching leeward areas as well. We should see an increase in shower coverage Monday night and Tuesday as some old frontal remnants move through. Fairly typical trade wind weather should then prevail Tuesday night into next weekend. Scattered to at times broken mid and high clouds will likely continue to stream overhead during the next couple days, but the coverage and thickness should be much less than what we saw yesterday.

Aviation

High pressure far northeast of the state will keep moderate to breezy trade winds in the forecast through Monday. Brief periods of showers are possible favoring windward and mountain areas mainly in the overnight to early morning hours.
AIRMET Tango remains in effect for moderate low level turbulence affecting all Hawaiian Islands below 080 over and immediately S through W of mountains. This low level turbulence will likely continue through Monday.

Marine

The large surface high far north northeast of Oahu will support a tight pressure gradient across the waters upstream of the islands. This will result in continued fresh to locally strong easterly winds across the Hawaiian Island's near and offshore waters. These amped up winds will drive rough seas over more windward waters but morning buoy wave observations are remaining under Small Craft Advisory (SCA) criteria. A SCA for winds remains in effect for the typically windier waters surrounding Maui County and Big Island through early Monday afternoon. An upper trough west of the islands will nudge ridging that is northeast of the region further east but the tight gradient will remain across and upstream of the state. Thus, an extension of the SCA in time is likely as these wind magnitudes are expected to continue through the middle of the week. The next surface high from northwest of the state will replace this high and ultimately retain the strength of the eastern Pacific pressure gradient through late in the week.
Surf will remain elevated along east-facing shores the next several days. A possible minor drop today in response to a slight easing in recent fresh east winds. Very small, background long period south swell will result in very small south-facing shore surf. In the extended outlook, a severe gale to possible storm force low southwest of the western Aleutians may send a larger, long period northwest swell into the nearshore waters next weekend. If this swell materializes, north-facing shore surf will likely exceed High Surf Advisory heights.
