NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Honolulu HI 
348 am HST Thursday Oct 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
light trade winds will bring showers into windward areas this 
morning with some rainfall spilling over leeward locations. Winds 
will slowly increase this afternoon as high pressure builds in 
from the north... and light to moderate trades will continue into 
next week. Expect increasing showers tonight as a batch of 
moisture moves through the islands. Otherwise...clouds and showers 
will increase at night while diminishing during the day. Muggy 
conditions will remain through the period. 


&& 


Discussion... 


Tropical Storm Ana continues to churn far northwest of the state. 
Ana/S low pressure and position has reduced the pressure gradient 
over Hawaii and has turned winds out of the southeast. Lingering moisture 
from an old frontal boundary will maintain some increased showers 
over Kauai and Oahu this morning before moving west of the islands 
late this morning. Showers will increase again tonight as a batch of 
moisture currently near 22n 153w... or 275 miles east of Oahu... 
pushes through the state. 


Ana will continue on a northward track today allowing high pressure 
to build over the state from the north...and turn our winds to a 
more easterly direction. Light trade winds this morning will 
slowly increase this afternoon to moderate levels tonight and 
Friday. However... energy from Ana will merge with a passing 
North Pacific low Saturday and this combination will push our 
trade-wind producing high eastward... and place the islands on the 
outskirts of the trade wind belt. With the ridge sitting just 300 
miles north of Kauai... trade winds will be light to moderate 
over the weekend with some leeward sea breezes forming in the 
afternoon. Afternoon and evening showers will be more active than 
normal as two old frontal boundaries bring enhanced moisture over 
the islands. Otherwise...leeward locations will see partly cloudy 
skies while showers focus over windward and Mauka areas. 


For the first half of next week...light trade winds remain with 
showers focused near the mountain as a cold front lingers 
northwest of Kauai... keeping the aforementioned high pressure 
shunted to the east. Global models are highly confused with the 
weather scenario from Wednesday and beyond with some bringing 
stronger trades and others placing a cold front near Kauai. The 
current forecast calls for moderate trades with the majority of 
models suggesting this solution. 


Muggy conditions will prevail through the forecast period with dew 
points remaining in the low 70/S. 


&& 


Aviation... 
clouds and numerous light showers associated with an old front will 
slowly diminish this morning. Broken MVFR ceilings...reduced 
visibility and mountain obscure will be the impacts this morning for mainly 
for the western half of the state and all windward areas. Airmet 
Sierra for windward mountain obscure is in effect. Trade winds along with a 
drier airmass will return to the state by mid-afternoon...with VFR 
conditions prevailing. 


&& 


Marine... 
a small north-northwest swell will fill in today and fade into the weekend. A 
small/moderate north swell is expected to arrive Friday night and 
continue through Sunday. Surf from these swells will remain below 
advisory levels. Only small surf is expected at south and east 
facing shores. 


Winds and seas will remain below Small Craft Advisory levels through 
the forecast period. 


&& 


Hfo watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
