NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Honolulu HI 
840 PM HST Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
light trade winds Thursday and Friday will yield to light and 
variable winds over the weekend...and into next week. The light 
trades will deliver a few showers to windward coasts and slopes... 
while also allowing afternoon clouds and showers to develop over 
interior and leeward areas. The light and variable winds will lead 
to clear nights and mornings...and cloudy afternoons and evenings... 
with clouds and showers favoring interior and upslope areas. A more 
stable air mass developing over the islands should limit shower 
intensity. Muggy conditions will continue. 


&& 


Discussion... 
heavy downpours that affected parts of the state this afternoon have 
all dissipated...and skies over the islands are generally 
clearing...especially over leeward areas. Latest surface analysis 
depicts a surface ridge just north of Kauai...extending SW from a high 
centered about 1900 miles NE of the islands. With the ridge in this 
position...a light east to southeast flow exists in the low levels over the 
islands...with island-scale land/sea breeze circulations overriding 
this flow...especially at the surface. A low aloft is centered about 
500 miles east-northeast of Oahu and moving slowly east...with an associated 
weak trough extending west over the state. High clouds S of the trough 
axis are streaming over The Big Island and adjacent waters. 


Overnight...expect skies to become generally clear over leeward 
areas...while the light east/southeast winds at cloud level push a few showers 
over windward areas. Radar shows that some of these small showers 
have intense cores...most recently noted over windward Kauai... 
Kauai leeward waters...and SW of Maui and Lanai. 


A somewhat less active weather pattern is expected to develop over 
the islands by Thursday...as a slightly drier airmass spreads in 
from the east...and middle level temperatures warm as the low aloft departs. 
Models indicate that a weak trade wind flow will develop Thursday 
and persist through Friday...as the ridge drifts north slightly. Still 
expect afternoon seabreezes Thursday and Friday afternoon to drive 
interior and leeward clouds and showers...but the showers are not 
expected to as widespread or intense as we have observed the past 
few days. A hybrid weather pattern seems likely...with limited 
showers and clouds across windward areas during the nights and early 
mornings...and clouds with scattered showers across leeward and 
interior in the afternoons. Warm and muggy conditions will 
continue...with above normal sea surface temperatures surrounding 
the islands contributing to rather high dewpoints. High clouds near 
The Big Island should clear out by Thursday as the trough aloft 
weakens. 


During the weekend and into the middle next week...a cold front 
several hundred miles northwest of the state will move slowly southeast...pushing 
the surface ridge over the state...supporting a pure land/sea 
breeze pattern over the islands. Scattered showers will develop 
mainly across interior and leeward areas each afternoon...with 
clearing each night as land breezes take over. Continued above 
normal dewpoints and the lack of trade winds will maintain warm and 
muggy conditions. Developing light southeast background flow may allow 
areas of volcanic haze to spread over the smaller islands during 
this time. The front is forecast to retreat northward by the middle 
of next week...allowing the ridge to shift north...and a light trade 
wind flow is expected to return. 


&& 


Aviation... 
light background wind flow will allow land breezes over the islands 
tonight. Expect decreasing low cloud cover as a result...with VFR 
conditions prevailing. Sea breezes will produce low clouds over the 
leeward and island interior sections by Thursday afternoon. MVFR 
ceilings...isolate or tempo mountain obscure will be possible as the cloud cover 
builds through the day. On Thursday...the atmosphere will be a 
little bit more stable than the past few days...so expecting shallow 
or moderate cloud tops and lighter associated showers than the past 
few days. 


&& 


Marine... 
surf observations and buoy data indicate that the current S swell 
remains sufficiently high to maintain advisory level surf along S 
facing shores. The advisory currently extends through the day 
Thursday...with surf expected to decrease below advisory levels 
Thursday evening. No other significant S swells are expected through 
the weekend. A moderate northwest swell appears to have peaked earlier 
today...and will gradually subside through Friday...just as a new 
moderate northwest swell begins to build. This swell is expected to peak 
late Saturday and diminish into Monday...just as another similarly- 
sized northwest swell begins to arrive. Resultant surf is expected to 
remain below advisory levels along north and west facing shores. After a 
bit of a hiatus...the Oahu surf discussion /srdhfo/ was updated 
today...and contains details that can be loosely applied statewide. 


Winds and seas will remain below Small Craft Advisory levels 
through the forecast period. 


&& 


Hfo watches/warnings/advisories... 
high surf advisory until 6 PM HST Thursday for south facing shores 
of all islands.
