Synopsis for hawaiian coastal waters.. High pressure north of the state will maintain moderate to locally strong trade winds through Friday night, with a slight weakening expected this weekend as what is left of tropical cyclone fernanda passes north of the area. East swells from a weakening fernanda are forecast to spread across most of the coastal waters into early next week.

Synopsis
A persistent ridge to our north will keep breezy trades blowing
through Friday. The trades will ease this weekend as the ridge
weakens. Tropical moisture will overspread the islands this
weekend, leading to higher humidity and an increase in showers.

The remnants of fernanda are expected to pass just north of the
islands on Monday, likely weakening our winds, and introducing
muggy conditions.

Discussion
There is little change in forecast philosophy from this morning.

A ridge of high pressure extends from a 1031 mb high near 40n178e
through 35n155w and 34n140w, far north of the main hawaiian
islands. This ridge has been a fixture with our weather for the
past few days, keeping trades on the breezy side and pushing
clouds and showers across windward and mauka areas. We expect this
pattern to persist through Friday. Troughing north of the ridge
will dig southward by this weekend, putting a dent in the ridge
between 160w and 180w, which will result in weakened trades for
the islands.

Rapidly weakening tropical storm fernanda is about 915 miles east
of hilo as of this writing. Satellite loop shows skies across the
main hawaiian islands cleared significantly since this morning,
but increased tropical moisture ahead of fernanda is noted east of
about 155w. Fernanda is forecast to pass north of the islands on
Monday, but the eastern edge of the low cloud field which merges
with that of fernanda's will reach the eastern islands tonight.

Also, models show an increase in deep moisture for the eastern end
of the state on Friday which will bring an increase in trade wind
showers there, with dry trade wind weather expected to continue
across the central and western islands.

While trade winds are forecast to decrease Friday night through
the weekend, we still expect increased clouds and showers
associated with fernanda to favor windward and mauka areas.

However, leeward showers may develop at times during the
afternoons if local sea breezes form.

As the remnants of fernanda pass by to the north of the islands
on Monday, trade winds will weaken further and sea breeze
development is expected across most areas. This light wind regime,
with overnight land breezes and daytime sea breezes, may continue
into Tuesday before the remnants of fernanda pass by and high
pressure strengthens north of the state. Breezy trade winds will
then return by the middle of next week. Models show the main
area of moisture associated with fernanda will pass north of the
islands on Monday but, with the humid conditions and light winds
in place, afternoon and evening showers are expected particularly
over the interior of the islands during the first half of next
week. A drier, less humid, and more stable airmass is then
expected to return by the middle of next week.

Aviation
Moderate to breezy trade winds will persist as a high pressure
ridge remains far to the north of the islands. Tempo MVFR
conditions, lower ceilings and passing showers, will mainly affect
windward areas.

With the occasionally strong trades, an airmet is currently posted
for moderate low level turbulence over and lee of all mountains.

Marine
Small craft advisory (sca) conditions can be expected for waters
south of the big island, all waters around maui county, and waters
south of oahu through early Friday morning, and the typically
windier waters around maui county and the big island through early
Saturday morning.

A rapidly weakening tropical storm fernanda is forecast to pass
just north of the islands from Sunday through late Monday as a
post-tropical remnant low. The wind forecast at this time
continues to carry light to moderate trade winds.

A high surf advisory is in place for the east facing shores of
the big island and maui through early Friday morning due to a
mid- to long- period east swell associated with a captured fetch
from when fernanda was a major hurricane. This swell should start
to subside late tonight. Guidance indicates reinforcing northeast
to east swells from fernanda arriving along the east facing
shores from as early as Friday. High surf advisory conditions for
the east facing shores will become likely again for the big island
Friday afternoon or Saturday morning and spread west to the
smaller islands. The final outcome will depend on the strength of
the winds fernanda continues to carry.

The largest high tides of the month (king tides) will occur each
afternoon during the next several days. Note that these abnormally
high tides combined with wave run up due to the east swells
produced by fernanda may result in coastal flooding in some areas,
especially from Friday into Monday.

Elsewhere, no significant swells are expected. Small south swells
will continue to produce small background surf along south facing
shores into next week.

Hfo watches warnings advisories
High surf advisory until 6 am hst Friday for windward haleakala-
south big island-big island north and east.

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 leeward
