Synopsis
Unsettled weather will impact the island chain through early next
week, as a front remains in the vicinity of the central islands
and a potent upper level low pivots just to the south of the
western end of the state. Heavy showers and a slight chance of
thunderstorms are expected in association with these features,
with the most unsettled weather expected across the central and
eastern islands. A return to a more typical trade wind weather
pattern is then expected by the middle of next week.

Discussion
Currently at the surface, a kona low is located around 80 miles
north of kauai and is shifting southward at around 20 mph.

Meanwhile, a nearly stationary front remains just to the west of
the big island. Infrared satellite imagery shows mostly cloudy to
overcast conditions across the state. Radar imagery shows a
steady stream of moderate to locally heavy rainfall moving
northward through oahu and maui county, with numerous showers
impacting the big island and scattered showers across kauai.

Main short term concern continues to revolve around the potential
for heavy rainfall.

Today through Monday night,
model solutions are in good agreement showing the kona low
tracking south of kauai today and tonight then stalling out and
weakening between 200 and 300 miles south of kauai Monday and
Monday night. The heaviest rainfall threat is expected to continue
to focus over maui county and the big island today, although some
moderate to locally heavy rainfall is also expected across oahu.

On kauai, the drier low level airmass will likely keep shower
coverage scattered despite the cold upper level low moving nearly
directly overhead. By tonight the nearly stationary front or
trough running through maui county is expected to have dissipated,
with the deepest moisture and best instability shifting off to
the south of the island chain. As a result, we should see a
decrease in the potential for widespread heavy rainfall. That
said, with the upper level low remaining in close proximity to the
islands along with lingering deep layer moisture, scattered to
numerous showers will need to remain in the forecast tonight through
Monday night, with the best chances for rain expected across the
central and eastern end of the state.

The flash flood watch remains in effect from oahu eastward to the
big island through late this afternoon, with the highest
potential for flooding rains expected across maui county and the
big island today.

The winter storm warning remains in effect for the big island
summits through late this afternoon, while the high wind warning
remains in effect through late tonight.

The wind advisory for the lower elevations has been cancelled as
winds have remained below advisory levels through the night and
are expected to decrease further through the day today.

Tuesday through next Saturday,
there remains some differences between the GFS and ECMWF with
respect to how quickly ridging aloft builds in from the west and
shifts the lingering instability and deeper moisture off to the
south and west of the island chain. Overall however, the trend
will be toward improving conditions, with a more typical trade
wind pattern expected to overspread the state Wednesday through
next weekend.

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.
