NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Honolulu HI 
843 PM HST Tuesday Aug 19 2014 


Synopsis... 
trade wind weather will continue through the week with showers 
favoring windward and mountain locations. Expect a few showers 
to reach leeward locations as well. 


&& 


Discussion... 
trade showers have been fairly active across windward areas 
during the past several hours...with a few rain gauges recording 
six hour totals over a half inch. Persistent showers also 
developed once again on the Kona coast early this evening...but 
have not produced the locally heavy rainfall rates that they did 
on Monday evening. Surface analysis depicts the northeast Pacific 
high in its typical summertime position about 1500 miles northeast 
of Honolulu...with moderate trades prevailing over Hawaii. 
Aloft...a weak upper low is lifting north of the state...with a 
ridge axis extending westward across The Big Island. The 00z 
soundings imply that a drier and more stable airmass is spreading 
in from the east...with Hilo reporting a well defined inversion 
based near 6000 feet and well below normal precipitable water of barely over 
one inch...while Lihue reported a weaker/higher inversion with 
precipitable water of 1.35 inches. Mimic-tpw satellite imagery depicts a rather 
dry airmass immediately to our east...with the leading edge of an 
area of considerably higher tropical moisture about 300 miles 
east of The Big Island. 


Overnight...expect typical passing showers across windward 
sections...with rainfall amounts mostly remaining light. A few 
showers may reach some leeward locations...but most Lee areas 
will remain dry. The existing forecast appears to be on track... 
and no updates are planned for this evening. 


Little change is expected through the next several days... 
with trade wind weather continuing. Model consensus forecasts 
the northeast Pacific high to remain static through the 
weekend...then possible weaken somewhat early next week as a cold 
front moves through that region. Once the upper low initially north 
of the state lifts away...ridging aloft should prevail over the 
state through the end of this week and into the weekend...with 
another very weak middle/upper level trough possibly developing 
nearby early next week. Day to day weather variations across 
Hawaii will be largely driven by changes in available moisture. 
One area of enhanced tropical moisture will cross the state 
Wednesday night into Thursday...with the deepest moisture 
appearing likely to affect The Big Island and Maui County. Would 
expect enhanced trade showers during this time...with some showers 
spilling over into leeward areas. Near average moisture levels 
will then prevail from Friday into the weekend...with another band 
of slightly higher moisture possibly moving across the area Sunday 
and Sunday night. 


The tropics remain active in the east Pacific...but latest 
forecasts from the National Hurricane Center and global models 
keep any tropical systems far away from Hawaii through the 
foreseeable future. 


&& 


Aviation... 
VFR will prevail over most areas through the evening hours and 
overnight. However...brief periods of MVFR in lower clouds and 
showers are likely to affect windward coastal and Mauka sections 
across the state...and possibly coastal and lower upslope portions 
of Kona on the Lee side of The Big Island. 


&& 


Marine... 
a late Tuesday morning ascat pass found areas of winds just below 
Small Craft Advisory /sca/ levels in the Alenuihaha Channel and 
south of The Big Island. May need to Post a Small Craft Advisory for those 
typically windier waters around Maui County and The Big Island 
late tonight...pending possible additional data from the 
overnight ascat pass. Expect trade winds to remain close to 
advisory levels in those waters through the rest of this week. 


South swell will maintain above average surf along south facing 
shores through the rest of this week. A diminishing south-southwest swell 
tonight will be replaced by another pulse from the south-southwest Wednesday 
through Friday. Surf may approach advisory levels across south 
facing shores on Thursday. See the collaborative nearshore swell 
and wind forecast for Oahu /srdhfo/ for more details. 


&& 


Hfo watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
