NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Honolulu HI 
1000 am HST Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
breezy trade winds will gradually increase into Friday...weaken 
Sunday and Monday...then recover by the middle of next week as high 
pressure to our north fluctuates in strength. Clouds and showers 
will favor windward and Mauka areas through the forecast period. 


&& 


Discussion... 
a 1029 mb high centered near 35n155w...about 920 miles north of the 
main Hawaiian islands...has ridges extending southeast through 
30n130w and southwest through 28n180w...spanning the central North 
Pacific. The pressure gradient between the high with its ridges to 
our north and equatorial low pressure is sufficiently steep to 
support moderate to locally strong trade winds across local waters 
this morning. Because of this...and because of anticipated stronger 
winds Friday...a Small Craft Advisory is in effect for all local 
waters through Friday afternoon. Weak troughing aloft shows up in 
morning soundings indicating cape between 600 and 1200 j/kg and 
negative lifted index values. However...a trade inversion near 8100 
feet shows ridging and a bit of subsidence is occurring at lower 
levels. Satellite loop shows patchy broken low clouds embedded in 
the trades upwind from the islands...with a typical patchwork of 
broken to overcast showery low clouds across windward and Mauka 
sections of the smaller islands. Radar data shows scattered to 
numerous showers across these same areas this morning. 


Models show the current trade wind pattern will continue into the 
weekend. However...upper troughing expected to move in from the 
northwest may weaken the ridge to our north Sunday and 
Monday...causing trade winds to decrease on those days. A stronger 
reinforcing high will move in from the northwest early next 
week...steepening the pressure gradient and boosting trade winds 
again by the middle of next week. 


&& 


Aviation... 
rain showers/-ra will produce isolate MVFR conditions along windward sections. 
Windward fields may see intermittent MVFR observation however mainly short 
lived. Elsewhere VFR will prevail. 


Strong trades NE g30kt will continue to produce low level Lee turb 
through the period. Airmet Tango will remain posted. High level jet 
related chop may increase over the western portion of the state after 
25/06z. 


&& 


Marine... 
a Small Craft Advisory is in effect for all waters in anticipation 
of strengthening winds and building combined seas through Friday 
afternoon...but may be reduced in area to the typically windy waters 
around The Big Island and Maui on Saturday night or Sunday. 
Northeasterly winds will reach their minimum speeds late Sunday or 
Monday...and then increase again by the middle of next week. 


Persistent trade winds will build seas...producing rough surf near 
the advisory level along east-facing shores by Friday. Increasing 
seas also contribute to the need for the Small Craft Advisory. Seas 
will diminish with the winds late Saturday and Sunday. 


A northwest swell will produce below-advisory surf along exposed 
shores of the smaller islands today. The swell will drop Friday and 
Saturday...but a small reinforcing northwest swell may arrive late 
Sunday into Tuesday. 


&& 


Hfo watches/warnings/advisories... 
Small Craft Advisory until 6 PM HST Friday for all Hawaiian 
waters-
