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
A weak ridge north of the islands will continue to keep hawaii in
a light trade wind pattern with daytime sea breezes along western
slopes of all islands through Wednesday. Wind directions will
shift to a more east to southeast direction today spreading vog
westward from the big island over the smaller islands from tonight
into Thursday. A new high pressure system will bring in breezy
trades by Thursday afternoon, clearing out the lingering vog from
the smaller islands by Friday morning. The trade winds will become
breezy from Friday through the weekend with increasing clouds and
showers favoring windward and mauka locations.

Discussion
A weak high pressure ridge will remain north of the islands on
today and tomorrow as a weak cold frontal boundary drifts south
towards the state. Satellite imagery shows clouds associated with
this weakening frontal band drifting into kauai this morning.

These low clouds should reach the north side of oahu around noon
hst. Any enhanced showers with this weakening frontal band will
likely remain north of the islands.

Expect in a light trade wind pattern with mostly dry weather
conditions with only isolated shower potential will continue
through Wednesday. Wind speeds will be light enough for daytime
sea breezes along western slopes of all islands. A stable
atmosphere with low trade wind inversion heights around 5,000 feet
will cap vertical cloud development. Wind directions today will
shift to a more east to southeast direction allowing the northern
edge of the vog plume to shift westward from the big island across
the smaller islands through Thursday.

Increasing trade winds return on Thursday as a stronger high
pressure system builds in across the central pacific basin. Breezy
to locally windy trade winds will settle in over the islands with
increasing clouds and showers favoring the windward and mauka
sections of each island from Friday through the first half of
next week with vog(volcanic smog) confined to the southern and
leeward slopes of the big island. This trade wind
weather pattern will continue for the foreseeable future.

Long range model solutions continue to show a weak upper level
low drifting into the hawaii region this weekend. Upper level lift
from this system will likely raise the cap on the trade wind
inversion and help to increase cloud cover and spread periods of
showers over leeward sections of each island. There remains some
differences in the track and intensity of this upper level feature
and precipitation impacts for each island are highly dependent on
the track of this upper level system. Stay tuned for forecast
updates as the long range precipitation forecast may continue to
evolve.

Aviation
Light trade winds and mainly dry weather will continue across the
state today. Overnight land breezes in some leeward and interior
areas will give way to daytime sea breezes, while other windward
areas will stay in trade winds throughout. MainlyVFR conditions
will prevail, with isolated MVFR ceilings possible along the
windward slopes, and more widespread MVFR visibilities possible in
haze across portions of the big island due to volcanic emissions.

No airmets are in effect or anticipated through this morning.

Marine
Winds will remain light through midweek as a weak frontal boundary
drops south into the local area and dissipates. Near the coasts,
mainly the leeward nearshore waters, land and sea breeze
conditions will remain possible through Wednesday. Seas will
remain small through midweek, with no significant reinforcing
swells anticipated. Fresh to strong trades are forecast to return
through the second half of the week locally and upstream across
the eastern pacific as high pressure strengthens. Seas will
respond and build, likely nearing the small craft advisory level
(10 ft) over the upcoming weekend across the alenuihaha channel
and waters south of the big island. Small craft advisory winds (25
kt) will be possible over the typical windier waters between
molokai and the big island as early as Thursday.

Surf along all shores will remain small through midweek with no
significant swells anticipated. Surf will begin to increase along
east facing shores as the trades increase locally and upstream later
in the week and through the upcoming weekend.

For the extended, overlapping long-period south swells will be
possible early next week due to ongoing activity across the southern
pacific southeast of new zealand. Yesterday's ascat pass within
this region showed a large area of gale- to storm-force southerly
winds within hawaii's swell window. An altimeter pass showed seas
topping out just above 30 ft, which was slightly above the ecmwf-
wave and wavewatch iii solutions. Additional fine tuning of the
forecast will be likely later in the week as this swell pushes
across the pago pago buoy.

Hfo watches warnings advisories
None.

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.
