NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Honolulu HI 
830 PM HST Tuesday Oct 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
Tropical Storm Ana continues to move away from the main Hawaiian 
islands. A ridge northeast of The Big Island will produce southeast 
flow over the main Hawaiian islands through tomorrow. A high 
building far north of the area will bring moderate trade winds 
Thursday and Friday. Winds will weaken and shift out the southeast 
again over the weekend as a front approaches from the northwest. 


&& 


Discussion... 
at 800 PM HST...Tropical Storm Ana was located about 480 miles west 
of Lihue and about 120 miles south of French Frigate Shoals. Ana 
is moving northwest around 9 miles per hour away from the main Hawaiian islands 
and toward the papahanaumokuakea marine National Monument. 


Infrared satellite shows cloud motions indicative of east southeast 
flow across the main Hawaiian islands...but The Big Island is 
partly blocking the flow...so winds have been relatively light 
over the smaller islands. Leeward clouds are observed over the 
islands due to the sea breezes induced from today/S heating of the 
land...which should clear out in the next hour or so as land 
breezes set in. Radar is showing isolated shower coverage around the 
state...though windward focused showers have picked up slightly 
across Kauai and Oahu this evening. 


An east to West Ridge far northeast of The Big Island and the 
circulation around Tropical Storm Ana will combine to maintain 
gentle to moderate east southeast flow over the main islands 
through tomorrow. The east southeast flow will push some showers 
ashore over windward areas tonight. With the east southeast flow 
partly blocked by The Big Island...winds will be light enough over 
the smaller islands for sea breezes to dominate again tomorrow 
afternoon and bring some clouds and showers to leeward and interior 
areas. The afternoon showers may be more active tomorrow than 
today as moisture from a remnant front cloud band slowly edges 
towards the state. Although winds will be rather light around the 
smaller islands through Wednesday evening...the low level flow 
will remain stronger near The Big Island. The hamakua coast and 
South Point will be susceptible to a bit stronger winds due to the 
orientation of terrain and wind flow. 


The global models are in good agreement showing a surface high far 
north northwest of the area building southeast on Thursday...strengthening 
the trade winds to moderate to fresh breezes. The trades will 
persist through Friday focusing showers over windward areas with 
mostly dry weather over leeward areas. 


The surface ridge will weaken and move south again over the weekend 
as a front approaches from the northwest. The winds over the main 
islands will weaken and shift out of the east southeast. That wind 
flow will likely bring scattered nighttime showers over windward 
areas and some clouds and showers over leeward areas in the 
afternoons. 




&& 


Aviation... 
enhanced moisture from an old frontal boundary remains just NE of 
the island chain. VFR should prevail overnight with possible periods 
of MVFR in passing showers...especially for windward and Mauka 
areas. Light southeast winds are expected again tomorrow...with the 
potential for afternoon interior cloud build ups. 




&& 


Marine... 
the current north swell will subside through Wednesday night. 
Another small swell from the north northwest arrives Thursday and 
will continue through the weekend but surf from these swells will 
remain below the advisory levels at north and west facing shores. 
Only small surf is expected at south and east facing shores. 


Winds and seas will remain generally below Small Craft Advisory 
/sca/ levels through the forecast period. Winds accelerating 
around The Big Island under the current southeast flow could come 
close to Small Craft Advisory conditions northeast and southwest of The Big Island. 




&& 


Hfo watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
