NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Honolulu HI 
830 PM HST Sat Oct 25 2014 


Synopsis... 
low clouds and showers associated with an old frontal band are 
moving down over the island chain through early Sunday. A weakening 
surface ridge north of the Aloha state will maintain light to 
moderate trade winds through the middle of next week. The trades 
will keep low clouds and showers focused across windward and Mauka 
areas. A cold front is expected to push through the islands late 
next week...bringing another increase in showers from Thursday night 
into Friday. Heading into next weekend...stronger trades...cooler 
air...and lower humidity will follow behind the front. 


&& 


Discussion... 
a surface ridge extends west southwest from a 1026 mb surface high 
near 34n 141w through a point about 350 miles north of Honolulu. The 
pressure gradient south of this surface ridge will maintain light to 
moderate trade winds across the island chain. A band of low clouds 
and showers associated with an old front is currently located over 
the coastlines and adjacent windward waters of the islands from The 
Big Island to Molokai. This band also extends far east northeast 
from The Big Island. Note that isolated showers ahead of this band 
are already moving into windward Oahu. 


Water vapor imagery shows an upper level ridge over the state...with 
an upper level trough far to the east and an upper level low west 
southwest of Kauai. The ridge aloft is maintaining relatively stable 
atmospheric conditions across the region. Even with these stable 
conditions...the early afternoon soundings from Hilo and Lihue 
indicated weak and elevated inversions near 9 to 10 thousand feet. 
The mimic precipitable water values show higher values associated 
with the old front are now located over the windward Big Island... 
even though the values at Hilo from 200 PM HST were only 1.09 
inches. 


This band of low clouds is forecast to push through most of the area 
by Sunday afternoon/evening. The forecast model guidance shows 
stable conditions and decreasing moisture depth during Sunday night 
and Monday. The surface ridge north of the islands will maintain 
light to moderate trade winds. The low-level trade wind flow will 
keep showers focused mainly across windward and Mauka sections of 
the state. With the upper level ridge remaining in the area...we 
expect rainfall amounts will meager due to the drier and more stable 
air mass early next week. Conditions start to change by the middle 
of next week as the upper level low to the west southwest starts 
moving toward the islands. This low aloft is expected to weaken as 
it moves into the vicinity of the state. However...the main 
influence has the main effect of weakening and raising the inversion 
height by Tuesday/Wednesday and enhancing trade wind showers. 


Toward the end of next week...a front approaching from the north may 
bring a noticeable change in local weather conditions. As a new high 
passes far north of the state...guidance remains in good agreement 
that a cold front will push down through the islands. This front 
will bring a band of clouds and showers from Thursday night into 
Friday. Breezy trades and cooler...drier air will follow behind this 
front late next week. The forecast reflects the current timing of 
the front...with an increase in showers from late Thursday into 
Friday. There are still some uncertainties in the timing of this 
front and its associated changes to our weather...so there may be 
adjustments to the forecast until we get closer to the event. 


&& 


Aviation... 
an area of widespread low clouds and showers associated with an old 
front continues to sag down over the islands this evening. Expect 
frequent showers along windward and Mauka areas of The Big Island 
and Maui County early this evening. These showers will eventually 
spread over Oahu and Kauai later this evening. Brief periods of MVFR 
due to low ceilings and reduced visibilities are likely in some of 
the heavier showers...especially along windward facing slopes and 
higher terrain. Some of these showers will be carried over to 
leeward sections of the smaller islands. 


Airmet Sierra has been posted for mountain obscuration for the 
higher terrain above 2500 feet on the islands from The Big Island to 
Oahu due to the low clouds and showers associated with the old 
frontal band. This airmet may need to be extended to Kauai later 
tonight. 


&& 


Marine... 
the general trade wind speeds are expected to remain in the light to 
moderate category...with locally stronger winds in the typically 
windier waters adjacent to the islands of Maui and Hawaii 
counties...through the middle of next week. No Small Craft Advisory 
/sca/ conditions are in the forecast through Wednesday. The trade 
wind speeds are forecast to ramp up next Thursday and Friday as a 
strong surface high builds north of the state. This will likely 
require the issuance of a Small Craft Advisory for portions of most of the coastal 
waters late next week. 


A series of small north and northwest swells will continue to 
produce modest surf along north facing shores of the island chain 
into Wednesday. A slightly larger north swell is expected during the 
second half of next week. Also...larger short-period easterly swells 
are expected by Friday as the trade winds strengthen. As a 
result...surf heights may approach the high surf advisory criteria 
along east facing shores late next week.

Hfo watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
