NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Honolulu HI 
830 PM HST Monday may 25 2015 


Synopsis... 
cool and relatively dry northeasterly winds will continue through 
Tuesday...with winds gradually weakening. Low clouds and a few light 
showers carried by the winds will focus along northeast facing 
slopes. From Tuesday into next weekend...winds are expected to be 
sufficiently light to allow land and sea breezes to prevail...with a 
somewhat cloudy and unsettled weather pattern expected. 


&& 


Discussion... 
an unseasonable Post-frontal airmass remains in place across the 
state tonight...as general synoptic winds stay light to locally 
moderate out of the north-northeast. This is due to a persistent 
surface low that hovered northeast of the islands in the past couple 
of days. The northerly winds are also bringing stable low clouds to 
the state...providing minimal precipitation to the area. Much of the 
low clouds will continue to affect the north facing areas of the 
islands. Winds in the island vicinity are rather weak...and will 
allow land breezes to develop as the night progresses. Usually skies 
may clear over the islands under the land breeze...but in this 
case...there may be enough low clouds from the northerly wind flow 
to keep skies somewhat cloudy...especially across the north facing 
areas. 


The aforementioned surface low will lift slightly more north in the 
coming days then track a little west. As such...the pressure 
gradient across the state remains slack...resulting in rather light 
easterly winds prevailing across the state through rest of the week. 
Winds will be light enough to allow daytime sea breezes and 
nighttime land breezes to develop. Therefore...expect a hybrid light 
trade winds with local land and sea breezes type wind scenario for 
the islands through rest of the week. Model solutions indicate there 
will also be an upper level low persists far north-northeast of the 
islands...with some weak shortwaves riding along the upper level 
flow...passing through the islands. Air mass in the island vicinity 
will stay somewhat stable even with the passages of the 
shortwaves...as indicated by the models. On the other hand...the low 
level moisture may deepen a bit under the influence of these passing 
shortwave...resulting in a possible increase in clouds and showers 
over the islands...especially in the afternoon and evening under 
daytime sea breezes. 


By the next weekend...a weak surface high builds north of the state. 
The surface weather pattern remains rather complex to our 
north...but a slight strengthening of the pressure gradient is 
expected over the islands. Slightly stronger trade winds are 
expected to the state...though synoptic winds may still be light 
enough for localized sea breezes to develop across leeward areas. 
Therefore clouds and showers will affect the windward areas at 
nights and mornings...while leeward areas may see more clouds and 
possible showers during the afternoons and evenings. 


&& 


Aviation... 
a light to moderate north to NE flow will continue to pile up mainly 
stable stratocumulus across north facing and windward slopes. 
Scattered showers will prevail overnight across these sections of 
Oahu and Kauai...with isolated showers at most elsewhere. With cloud 
bases running a bit higher than normal...VFR conditions should 
prevail...with VFR ceilings spilling over into leeward sections of 
the smaller islands...especially on Kauai and Oahu. No airmets are 
currently expected overnight...although there is a small chance that 
airmet Sierra for mountain obscuration could be needed on 
windward/north sections of Oahu and/or Kauai. 


VFR conditions will continue to prevail on Tuesday. Light north/NE 
background flow will allow for widespread seabreezes to develop by 
afternoon. Clouds and widely scattered showers will develop across 
interior and leeward areas...but only isolated MVFR conditions are 
expected. 


&& 


Marine... 
Small Craft Advisory level winds or seas are not expected through 
the week...as winds in the island vicinity remain light to 
moderate...while swells from the S...SSW...NNE...and west-northwest are modest 
at most. 


Surf will remain elevated and just below advisory level along south 
facing shores through the next couple of days...as the current south 
swell peaks through early Tuesday...then slowly subside through 
Thursday. Latest surface analyses and wave watch model output 
indicate that a near-storm force low now brewing east of New Zealand 
is producing a swell that will arrive next weekend...with initial 
indications that this swell will bring near advisory levels surf for 
south facing shores. 


&& 


Hfo watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
