Synopsis
A high pressure ridge far to the north of the hawaiian islands
will continue to keep the state in a moderate trade wind weather
pattern through next week with clouds and showers favoring the
windward and mountain slopes of each island. A few weak
disturbances developing in the deep tropics will bring higher
moisture amounts northward with periods of enhanced showers
affecting the islands through week. The first round of enhanced
showers will begin today and last through Tuesday morning.

Discussion
The morning satellite and radar imagery shows clouds and showers
developing in the trade wind flow upstream of the islands. Shower
activity will trend higher later this afternoon as low level
moisture amounts rise from east to west across all islands through
the day. Precipitable water (pw) amounts will range from 1.5 to
2.0 inches as this deeper moisture plume passes slowly through the
state over the next 48 hours. The leading edge of this moisture
plume is roughly 100 miles east of hilo moving westward. Numerous
showers will develop across windward and mauka areas with periods
of scattered showers drifting over leeward sections, especially
during the overnight time periods.

In the big picture, two 1032 mb surface high pressure centers
remain far north of the islands this morning, one in the central
pacific and the second high in the east pacific. A moderately
strong high pressure ridge will remain north of the hawaiian
islands through the week. A cold front moving south near the
international date line will break down the ridge northwest of the
islands as the east pacific high builds. The break in this ridge
will cause a slight shift in ridge axis, causing the trade wind
directions to shift slightly towards the east with potentially a
slight southeasterly component from Thursday through Friday, yet
it will not significantly affect the moderate trade wind speeds.

Three periods of wet weather are forecast through the week as
several weak disturbances developing in the deep tropics will send
plumes of higher moisture amounts northward with several days of
enhanced showers across the state through the next week.

A second elevated moisture plume will drift across the state on
Thursday with pw amounts increasing back into the 1.5 to 2.0 inch
range causing numerous showers along windward and mountain slopes
with periods of scattered showers over leeward areas from
Thursday through Friday with a similar flavor of wet trade wind
weather forecast for each island. More stable air moves back into
hawaii from the east from late Friday into Saturday.

Longer range models hint at a third round of unstable moisture
and a slight increase in showers reaching the big island by
Saturday afternoon. The latest model trends keep most of the
deeper moisture south of the state with pw amounts over the
islands hovering around 1.5 inches. More forecast details on this
third system will develop later in the week as the time period
gets closer.

Aviation
Locally breezy east winds will persist through the coming week.

Cloud and shower coverage will be relatively sparse through this
morning, andVFR conditions will prevail. There will be isolated
MVFR ceilings and visibility over east sections of the islands,
but we do not anticipate that airmet sierra will be required for
mtn obsc. Clouds and showers will increase starting this afternoon
as low level moisture spreads over the islands from the east. MVFR
conditions will become widespread over east sections of the islands
and mtn obsc may become widespread enough to require airmets by
this evening. The cloudy, showery conditions are likely to
continue through tomorrow.

Marine
Surface high pressure far north of the islands will continue to
produce locally breezy trade winds. A small craft advisory (sca)
remains in effect for maalaea bay and the pailolo and alenuihaha
channels through early Monday morning. The SCA will likely
continue from Monday through mid-week for these same areas, and
may include additional waters later this week.

A new long-period south swell will continue to spread across the
islands this morning. This swell is expected to peak later today
or tonight, and then gradually lower from Monday through Tuesday.

A high surf advisory remains in effect through Monday afternoon
for south facing shores of all islands. Otherwise, only small
south swells are expected to maintain background surf along south
facing shores from mid-week into next weekend. The trade winds
will continue to produce moderate short-period choppy surf along
east facing shores this week.

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.
