NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Honolulu HI 
1020 am HST Wednesday Jul 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
light and variable winds will prevail through Friday...with light 
trade winds returning over the Holiday weekend. Stronger trade winds 
are expected by next week. With the light winds...humid conditions 
will continue. Also...daytime heating will lead to clouds and a few 
showers developing over leeward and interior areas each afternoon 
and evening...followed by clearing skies overnight. There may be a 
slight increase in afternoon showers the next couple of days as 
moisture increases over the islands. As trade winds strengthen... 
clouds and showers will focus over windward areas during nights and 
mornings. 


&& 


Discussion... 
an unseasonable SW low-level flow near Kauai is one of the more 
eye-catching features on this morning/S regional satellite imagery... 
with light southeast flow near The Big Island. Latest surface analysis has 
a col over Oahu...a front about 200 miles northwest of Kauai...and surface 
ridges extending toward the islands from the east-northeast and west. Skies are 
mostly sunny over Kauai and Oahu and surrounding waters...while low 
clouds have recently increased in coverage over the lower slopes of 
Maui County. The lower slopes of The Big Island...and Big Island/ 
Maui near shore windward waters...contain broken to overcast low 
clouds...with little in the way of precipitation detected by area radars. 


Precipitable water values are somewhat reduced over Kauai/Oahu as compared to Maui 
and The Big Island...which may limit the coverage of clouds and 
showers that develop there in response to sea-breeze circulations 
this afternoon. Ongoing forecast for today looks to be on track 
though...and a short-term forecast update is not anticipated. 


The front currently northwest of Kauai will stall and gradually dissipate 
through Saturday...as a different front stalls farther to the northwest. 
The surface ridge that extends over the area from the east-northeast will thus 
remain suppressed southward over the chain...keeping winds light and 
variable over most areas...except for light to moderate trades S of 
The Big Island. This will continue the pattern of warm and muggy 
afternoons and evenings...with clouds and a few showers over the 
islands. Skies will clear overnight...which will allow for cooler 
mornings. The ridge begins to move north over the weekend but will do so 
slowly...allowing a gradual return/strengthening of the trade wind 
flow. Local land and sea breezes will still occur through the 
weekend however...with a few windward showers delivered by the 
trades...and the potential for a few afternoon leeward showers. 


A fairly benign trade wind weather pattern is in the works for next 
week...as high pressure builds north of the area...and the pressure 
likely drops to the S of the islands...potentially due to a 
westward-moving tropical low. Moisture north of this feature could 
bring increased trade showers Wednesday-Friday next week. 


&& 


Aviation... 
a cold front several hundred miles north-northwest of Kauai has 
pushed the ridge near the state. Light winds leading to sea breezes 
during the day and land breezes overnight will persist through the 
next few periods. Interior areas will likely see cloud build ups 
during the afternoons and clearing at night. An axis of enhanced 
moisture running north to south between Maui and The Big Island will 
aide in increasing clouds and showers with possible MVFR conditions 
over eastern Maui and The Big Island. This moisture is forecast to 
disperse over the next few periods. 


&& 


Marine... 
Small Craft Advisory /sca/ conditions are not anticipated through 
the Holiday weekend...with the potential for Small Craft Advisory in the windier 
marine zones around Maui and The Big Island early next week as trade 
winds strengthen. 


With respect to surf...a fairly active weather pattern in the S 
hemisphere has spawned lows that have had fetches aimed toward the 
islands. Therefore...pulses of small to moderate S and SW swell 
will arrive through the Holiday weekend...maintaining seasonably- 
sized moderate surf along S facing shores. Peaks in surf heights are 
expected today and on Sunday...approaching but remaining below 
advisory levels. A small relatively short-period northwest swell will 
arrive tonight...peak Thursday and slowly diminish through 
Friday...with peak surf heights well below advisory levels. 


&& 


Hfo watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
