Marine Weather and Tides
Maunaloa, 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 for hawaiian coastal waters.. Weak high pressure north of the islands will bring light easterly winds through today. Starting tonight, a dissipating front will drift south toward the islands and stall just north of the islands. This will cause the winds to weaken Tuesday and Wednesday. High pressure northeast of the islands will return Thursday and strengthen on Friday.

Synopsis
Light, gentle trade winds will continue over the islands through
Wednesday, with relatively dry conditions prevailing. Vog may
spread westward from the big island Tuesday night into Wednesday
as the winds become more easterly. A new high pressure system will
bring in a fresh batch of moderate to locally strong trades on
Thursday, clearing out the vog from the smaller islands by Saturday.

With the stronger trades, there could be an uptick in the trade
showers. This pattern will persist through the upcoming weekend.

Discussion
The forecast was updated earlier this morning, reducing the clouds
and showers for the today and tonight periods. The 2 am hst
soundings from both lihue and hilo, shows a good low level
at 4 to 5 k feet, which will be strong enough to limit the showers
to isolated. Precipitable water is around 1.50 inches from these
two stations, but they are misleading, as the bulk of the pw is
above 10k feet, mainly in the form of high cirrus clouds.

Satellite imagery shows a narrow band of clouds about 170 miles
north of kauai. It is expected to dissipate as it drifts
southward. About 300 miles north of kauai, is a broad band of
clouds which is part of a weakening cold front. The models are in
good agreement in stalling this feature north of the islands, but
may come close enough to scrape kauai Tuesday night, bringing a
slight uptick in trade showers to that island.

The current surface ridge is about 170 miles north of kauai.

The latest GFS solution indicate the current low level winds from
the northeast to veer to the east on Tuesday night. This will
spread the vog to the smaller islands from the big island.

A new eastward moving surface high of 1031 mb is expected to entire
the weather scene by providing a boost in the easterly winds
commencing on Wednesday night. Moderate to locally strong trades
should be in place by Thursday evening. Trades will continue to
strengthen and back a little more toward the north as the surface
high inches closer to the islands from the northwest. This slight
change in the direction of the trades will be sufficient in
clearing out the vog across the smaller islands and limited to
mainly the puna and kau districts of the big island.

The high is expected to be 1400 miles northwest of kauai by Friday
evening, passing north of the islands Saturday afternoon through
Sunday. So, it will be a bit more windier during this stretch over
the weekend. With the boost in the trades, so will the uptick in
the trade showers. The models are showing an upper level
disturbance just east of the big island over the weekend that may
enhance the trades showers over maui and especially the big island.

Aviation
Surface ridge just north of the state will keep trade winds light,
with localized sea breezes giving way to offshore land breezes
tonight across sheltered leeward areas. PrimarilyVFR conditions
will prevail across the state under generally dry and stable
conditions. Localized MVFR ceilings are possible in showers, with
more widespread MVFR visibilities in haze across portions of the
big island due to volcanic emissions.

No airmets are in effect or anticipated.

Marine
Weak high pressure north of the islands will bring light trade winds
through today. Starting tonight, a dissipating front will drift
south toward the islands and stall just north of the islands. This
will cause the winds to weaken and potentially becoming more
variable Tuesday and Wednesday. High pressure will return
Thursday and strengthen Friday into the weekend. Winds will likely
be strong enough to warrant a small craft advisory in the windier
zones by Thursday or Friday.

The long-period wnw and S swells of the past couple of days will
diminish through Tuesday, with little significant swell expected
for most of the upcoming week. Small, long-period ssw swells will
likely support tiny to small surf along S facing shores, while
locally strong trade winds at the end of the week will lead to
increased short-period E swell.

Hfo watches warnings advisories
None.
