NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Honolulu HI 
957 am HST Monday Feb 8 2016 


Synopsis... 
cool and dry weather will prevail through Wednesday. Temperatures 
will gradually increase over the week. Current northeast winds 
will decrease later today before becoming light and variable 
Tuesday and Wednesday. Gentle trade winds return during the second 
half of the week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
winds will turn out of the northeast today as a high pressure 
ridge edges closer to the islands from the northwest. Moderate 
trade winds are expected into tonight with very little rainfall. 
The ridge will move over the northern islands Tuesday and 
Wednesday allowing for widespread afternoon sea breezes and 
nighttime downslope flow. The ridge is forecast to lift north of 
Kauai by Thursday allowing for light/moderate trade winds to 
return with limited windward showers. An approaching cold front 
will diminish winds over the smaller islands for the weekend with 
afternoon sea breezes likely. 


Temperatures will be cooler than normal over the next few days 
with dew points remaining in the low 50/S through Wednesday 
before rebounding for the second half of the week. Current dew 
points around the state show very dry conditions ranging from the 
upper 40/S to low 50/S. The overnight soundings from Lihue and 
Hilo reveal a Bone dry atmosphere with 0.66 and 0.75 inches of 
precipitable water...respectively. With the dry air and the 
expected upcoming light winds... nighttime and early morning 
temperature will drop into the upper 50/S for some sea levels 
locations with colder temperatures in store for higher elevations. The 
Honolulu Airport temperature dropped to 61 f last night and 
similar cold temperatures are expected across the state for the 
next two nights. High temperatures will also feel cooler than 
normal due to the dry air and temperatures will remain in the middle to 
upper 70/S for most sea level areas. 


Little rainfall is expected through Wednesday with the dry 
atmosphere and stable conditions in place. Limited windward 
showers will return Thursday and Friday as moderate trade winds 
build and dew points climb back into the 60/S. 


&& 


Aviation... 
VFR conditions will prevail across the state today...with minimal 
shower activity across north and northeast facing slopes. No 
airmets are in effect and none are anticipated through today. 


&& 


Marine... 
surf remains elevated along north facing shores and west facing 
shores of Niihau and Kauai and the surf advisory has been extended 
through tonight for those areas. 


The next large northwest swell is expected late Tuesday...peaking 
Wednesday...then slowly subside Thursday and Friday. The latest 
model guidance still shows peak swell heights ranging from 15-18 
feet Wednesday. Well above warning-level surf will be present along 
north and west facing shores of most smaller islands Wednesday 
through Thursday. Some swell will also work its way into north 
facing beaches along the northeast coast of The Big Island. Conditions 
should improve to below advisory levels by Friday evening. 


The combination of the current north-northwest swell and the 
northeast winds has brought small craft conditions to almost all 
coastal waters. As the winds decrease later today and 
tonight...expect conditions to improve. 


&&

high surf advisory until 6 am HST Tuesday for Niihau-Kauai
