NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Honolulu HI 
800 PM HST Friday Aug 28 2015 


Synopsis... 
very warm and humid conditions will continue despite the return of 
the trades this weekend. The trades will be weak enough to favor 
some afternoon clouds and showers over the leeward and interior areas 
of the smaller islands Saturday. Then a disturbance may result in 
a few more clouds and showers Sunday statewide. Hurricane Ignacio 
will approach the state late in the weekend and will affect all of 
the main islands the first half of next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
we welcome back the return of the trades and a slightly more stable 
and drier air mass today. Believe only Oahu and Kauai had a few 
minor convective showers over on their interior and or leeward parts 
of the Island. A few trade showers also blew across windward Kauai 
today. But showers were rather absent across Maui County and The Big 
Island. 


The trades ushered in a slightly drier...more bearable air mass. 
Dew points are one to three degrees fahrenheit less currently 
compared to 24 hours ago. A few more degree drop is anticipated as 
satellite derived precipitable water imagery shows a drier air mass 
of 1.4 to 1.7in nearing The Big Island from the east this afternoon. 
We anticipate this airmass to cross the area tonight and Saturday 
before turning juicier again with precipitation water values increasing to 
2 inches or higher Sunday. Sea surface temperatures surrounding the islands 
are quite warm standing at 82 degrees f. This affect the air blowing 
across it by keeping the air on the warm side. So the trades instead 
of being cool...will be warm. 


The weather becomes somewhat showery or at least a better chance for 
showers Sunday thanks to an upper level disturbance. The showers 
backs off slightly Monday...but by this point...the effects of 
Hurricane Ignacio takes over. 


Water vapor imagery shows an upper level high about 230 miles south 
southwest of The Big Island. So a west to east wind flow lies over 
the Hawaiian islands with some cirrus clouds embedded in the flow. 
This flow becomes north and northeast immediately southeast of The 
Big Island to 150w longitude. Ignacio is located few degrees east of 
150w. 


The rest of the forecast hinges on the track of Ignacio with the 
forecast of uncertainty increasing significantly on Monday and 
Tuesday. Please see the latest discussion issued by the Central 
Pacific Hurricane Center for specifics related to the track and 
intensity...issued under AWIPS header tcdcp3 and WMO header wtpa43 
phfo. 


The Cone of uncertainty...which is the potential track given 
historic track error...includes the entire state. If Ignacio shifts 
to the right...we could see light winds...more humid 
conditions...and localized heavy rain. On a more leftward track 
closer to the islands...we could see stronger/damaging winds and 
more widespread heavy rain/flooding. Everyone should continue to 
monitor the progress of Ignacio during the next several days. 


&& 


Aviation... 
VFR conditions will prevail through the overnight hours. The trade 
winds will carry in a few showers favoring the windward and 
mountain areas of all the larger islands. So expect some brief MVFR 
ceilings and visible with these showers. An isolated shower or two may 
appear along the Kona coast of The Big Island in the next few hours 
as well. 


No airmets currently and no airmets expected for the rest of the 
night. 


&& 


Marine... 
little change with the marine aspects. All mariners should monitor 
the progress of Hurricane Ignacio during the next several days. 


Winds and seas should remain below Small Craft Advisory levels into 
Saturday...with elevated seas becoming a concern by Sunday for 
portions of the state. 


In the short term...a west to west-northwest swell will be the main 
concern. Both the Waimea and Hanalei buoys are reporting a west-northwest swell 
of 3.6 feet and 15 second period as of 7 PM HST. The Barbers Point buoy 
off Oahu is coming in at 3.9 foot swell at 15 seconds. With this 
said...the high surf advisory is on track for leeward Big Island... 
good to 6 PM HST Saturday. 


A high surf advisory will go into effect at 6 am HST Saturday 
for the east facing shores of The Big Island...from a swell 
generated by Hurricane Ignacio. The advisory may be extended to the 
east facing shores of Maui Saturday night. Timing for the other 
islands will be delayed due to shadowing/blocking from The Big 
Island and Maui. Warning level surf is likely for The Big Island in 
the days ahead. The surf forecast thereafter rest on the track and 
strength of Ignacio. 


&& 


Hfo watches/warnings/advisories... 
high surf advisory until 6 PM HST Saturday for west facing shores of 
The Big Island. 


High surf advisory from 6 am Saturday to 6 PM HST Sunday for east 
facing shores of The Big Island.
