NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...corrected 
National Weather Service Honolulu HI 
427 am HST sun Jan 25 2015 


Synopsis... 
breezy north-northeast winds due to high pressure northwest of the 
state will focus showers across windward and Mauka areas of Maui 
County through tonight and The Big Island through Monday. Clouds 
will linger across all windward slopes today. Winds will veer 
easterly on Monday...then southeast on Wednesday. Another front is 
expected to be over or near the islands Thursday night into early 
Friday. 


&& 


Discussion... 
infrared satellite and radar shows mostly cloudy skies over the 
windward areas...with shallow but numerous showers across windward 
slopes of Maui County and The Big Island this morning. The clouds 
and showers are resulting from remnant moisture left over from a 
front that is now southeast of The Big Island. A 1023 mb surface 
high is centered at 28n167w...or about 600 miles northwest of Kauai 
this morning. The high is ushering in breezy north-northeast winds 
which are pushing the clouds and showers onto the windward slopes. 
The 12z Lihue sounding shows a fairly stable inversion at around 
6000 feet with precipitable water /pw/ values at around 0.9 inches. 


With still quite a bit of cloud cover upstream...anticipating much 
of the clouds and showers to linger through tonight...with most 
of the showers focused over windward sides of Maui County and The 
Big Island. The shallow nature of the showers will keep most of 
the them confined to windward and Mauka areas due to the stable 
air associated with the high pressure to the northwest. Showers 
may continue through Monday for windward Big Island. 


The surface high is expected to track east-northeast over the next 
couple of days...resulting in the winds veering eastward and 
tapering off on Tuesday as the high moves away from Hawaii. 


The trade winds will give way to southeasterly winds on Wednesday 
and Wednesday night as a front approaches from the northwest. The 
front will arrive on Kauai around Thursday night or Friday morning 
and move eastward down the island chain Friday and Saturday... 
bringing 
a quick burst of rainfall. At this time it appears most of the 
upper level dynamics with the front will remain north of the 
state. Winds will shift out of the northwest behind the front. 


Winds at The Big Island summits are elevated but remain below 
advisory levels at this time. Winds at the summits will decrease 
during the first half of the week...before ramping up again with the 
next system Thursday night. With the Thursday night event...winds 
may reach advisory levels at the summits. 


&& 


Aviation... 
widespread MVFR/isolate IFR ceilings and visible associated with the 
remnants of a front continues to plague most of the islands this 
morning. Litle improvement expected through 04z as the remnants to 
the front gets blown and piled onto the windward side of all islands 
exposed to this low level NE wind flow. This layer of NE winds is very 
shallow...no higher than 5k feet. Winds above 5k are from the west and 
northwest. Thus this moisture laden airmass from an excessive-front is trapped on 
the windward side. So...airmet Sierra for mountain observation will continue and 
likely to persist for a good part of today. Lanai may get lucked out 
since Maui is in the way but windward Kauai is being threatened with 
airmet Sierra as moisture just north of the island is poised to move 
back in. 


Low level NE winds are rather gusty in spots statewide this morning 
which is expected to strengthen as the day progresses as the center 
to a surface hi passes north of the islands this afternoon and tonight. 
Airmet Tango is in effect and will be extended through 22z. 




&& 


Marine... 
the northwest swell affecting the islands will gradually lower 
today and tonight. The high surf warnings along north and west 
facing shores have been downgraded to advisories for today and 
tonight...with the exception of west facing shores of The Big 
Island where the warning remains through today. Surf will likely 
drop to advisory levels along west facing shores of The Big Island 
tonight. 


The current swell...combined with some stronger northeast winds are 
bringing Small Craft Advisory /sca/ conditions to all of the 
coastal waters today. We expect some areas to drop out of the 
Small Craft Advisory for tonight as the swell drops. Some zones may continue 
tonight and Monday due to the breezy trade winds. 






&& 


Hfo watches/warnings/advisories... 
high surf advisory until 6 am HST Monday for north and west 
facing shores of Niihau Kauai Oahu and Molokai and north facing 
shores of Maui. 


High surf warning until 6 PM HST this evening for Kona-kohala. 


Small Craft Advisory until 6 PM HST this evening for all 
Hawaiian waters-
