Nanawale Estates, HI

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis
Breezy trade winds are expected to persist through Saturday, which
will focus clouds and showers over windward areas, with a few
brief showers carried over to leeward sections at times. The
trades are expected to ease somewhat from Sunday through early
next week. Trade showers may increase slightly from Friday night
through Saturday, with more widespread rainfall possible across
parts of the state starting next Tuesday.

Discussion
No significant changes to the forecast at this time, nor any
significant changes expected today. High pressure continues to
dominate the weather with breezy trade winds continuing. This high
pressure north of the islands will slowly shift to the east
starting tomorrow. By Sunday is will be far enough to the east,
with a front passing the islands to the north that trades will
likely ease a bit.

A new high pressure system will set up further north of the
islands Monday, and move to the east during the first half of the
new week. This will continue to keep trade winds on the lighter
side.

Meanwhile, an upper level trough west of the islands will move to
the east through the end of the week, and could help to enhance
trade wind showers as we head into the weekend. This trough
lingers near the western islands through the weekend and into
early next week. This will likely result in some increased shower
activity over what we have been experiencing, but at this time not
expecting any issues with rainfall totals.

A special weather statement continues to highlight the trace
ashfall potential across portions of the big island's kau
district. With trade winds expected to continue into the weekend,
continue to expect any ashfall to be focused over this area.

Aviation
MainlyVFR conditions are expected for all TAF sites today, though
passing low clouds and showers may bring brief MVFR ceiling and
vis conditions along the windward areas. There may be enough low
cloud coverage to warrant airmet mtn obsc along the windward
slopes at times later today.

Rather brisk trade winds will persist across the area today as a
strong high pressure passes far north of the islands. Airmet
tango series remains posted for low level turbulence over and
immediately south and west of mountains below 8000 feet on all
islands. These conditions are expected to persist through
Thursday.

Periodic explosive eruptions at kilauea halemaumau crater continue
to produce billows of volcanic ash at times, with the plume of
emissions predominately rising to slightly above the inversion
level and spreading to the southwest over kau district on the big
island. MVFR vis can be expected in this area. Sigmet tango series
for volcanic ash remains in effect.

Marine
A surface high north of the area will produce locally strong trade
winds through Friday evening. The trades will weaken from Saturday
through memorial day as the high moves east and a front approaches
from the northwest. Winds are expected to strengthen again during
the second half of next week as the front dissipates and a strong
new high builds north of the area. A small craft advisory (sca)
will likely remain in effect through at least Friday night for the
strong trade winds.

Surf will remain below advisory levels along all shores through
at least the middle of next week. A series of swells from the
tasman sea will keeping surf along south facing shores near the
summertime average. Rough surf along east facing shores will
subside early next week as trade winds weaken.

Hfo watches warnings advisories
Small craft advisory until 6 am hst Saturday for maalaea bay-
pailolo channel-alenuihaha channel-big island leeward waters-big
island southeast waters.

Small craft advisory until 6 am hst Friday for oahu windward

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
