NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Honolulu HI 
843 PM HST Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
moisture from a dissipating front will produce frequent showers 
tonight and Friday...especially across windward areas. Breezy 
trade winds will continue through Friday night before dropping a 
notch over the weekend. Windward showers will continue through the 
weekend while a decrease in leeward showers is expected. 


&& 


Discussion... 
fast moving showers continue to affect mainly windward sections of 
the state this evening. These showers have remained mostly low 
topped and light to moderate...which combined with the rapid 
motion has prevented any excessive rainfall amounts. Surface 
analysis depicts a dissipating front across the western end of 
the state...with a 1032 mb high centered about 1100 miles north 
of Honolulu. Fresh to strong trades prevail over the region to 
the south of this high. Water vapor imagery indicates an upper 
level trough in the process of cutting off into a closed low over 
the area...while mimic-tpw imagery shows a narrow ribbon of 
enhanced moisture along the dissipating front lying across Kauai 
and Oahu. The 00z Lihue sounding found no significant inversion 
and somewhat above normal precipitable water of 1.64 inches...while the 00z Hilo 
sounding found more typical conditions with an inversion based 
near 8000 feet and a near normal precipitable water of 1.32 inches. 


Overnight into Friday...would expect frequent showers to continue 
across windward areas...with some of the showers spilling over 
into leeward sections of the smaller islands due to the brisk 
trade wind flow. The presence of enhanced moisture and instability 
aloft could allow for greater vertical development of some of the 
showers...but the continued fast shower motion will make excessive 
rainfall amounts unlikely unless a training situation is able to 
develop. Models indicate a low but non-zero potential for 
thunderstorms to develop underneath the upper trough to the east 
and northeast of Maui...but given that no storms have been 
observed in the region during the past several hours will not 
include such in the forecast at this time. No forecast updates are 
planned for this evening. 


Trades will gradually weaken during the weekend as the surface high 
shifts northeast of the state and another cold front moves eastward 
north of 30n. Lingering moisture from the nearby dissipated front 
and the proximity of a middle/upper level trough should keep showers 
active across windward areas...especially at night...with 
scattered showers continuing to spill into some leeward areas. 


During the first half of next week...another strong surface high 
pushing eastward across the dateline will force the frontal 
boundary slowly southeastward toward the state. Low level winds 
will veer slightly to the east-southeast in response...with 
some degree of enhanced moisture possibly being drawn up from the 
deep tropics over our area. Model consensus then dissipates the 
front near or just north of the state by next Thursday...as the 
surface high moves well north of the area. Trades should increase 
a notch once again...with a typical windward shower pattern 
continuing. 


&& 


Aviation... 
moderate to locally strong trades continue across the islands this 
evening and will prevail through Friday. Therefore the airmet for 
low level turb will persist. Low clouds from a dissipating cold 
front have reached Kauai at this time and will spread to the rest of 
the smaller islands through the rest of the evening into early 
Friday morning. Expect an increase in rain showers and MVFR ceiling 
conditions for the smaller islands as the night progresses. There 
may even be enough low clouds to warrant an airmet for mountain 
obscuration for the smaller islands. Moisture at the middle and upper 
levels associated with a trough has spread over the southern islands 
and brought light icing to those area...as reported by an aircraft 
earlier. Expect the moisture to dissipate overnight and thus the 
condition will end. 


&& 


Marine... 
a combination of north swell and trade driven wind waves continues 
to produce elevated surf on north and east facing shores. Another 
reinforcing north swell will arrive late tonight and Friday...then 
slowly diminish through the weekend. A high surf advisory remains 
in effect through Friday night for east facing shores. Surf along 
south facing shores will remain small through Monday...with a 
slight bump Tuesday as a new long period swell arrives. Another 
small northwest swell will arrive Tuesday as well. 


A Small Craft Advisory /sca/ remains posted through Friday night 
for most coastal areas due to strong winds and high seas. Winds 
and seas should subside somewhat by Saturday...but Small Craft Advisory winds will 
probably continue across the typically windy areas around Maui 
County and The Big Island. 


&& 


Hfo watches/warnings/advisories... 
high surf advisory until 6 am HST Saturday for east facing shores 
of Kauai Oahu Molokai Maui and Big Island. 


Small Craft Advisory until 6 am HST Saturday for Kauai northwest
