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 moderately strong high pressure system is slated to pass north
of the islands over the weekend, resulting in a boost in the trade
winds to breezy. This ramping up of the trades will be accompanied
by an increase in trade showers, where the lee side of the smaller
islands may experience some passing showers. Leeward big island
will have some scattered showers each afternoon and evening for
the coming days.

Discussion
The strengthening trades is being brought on by an approaching
surface high now located 1750 miles northwest of kauai. It has a
central pressure of 1027 mb, and is forecast to strengthen to 1035
mb when it passes some 1200 miles north of the islands Saturday
and Saturday night. The trades will strengthen to widespread
moderate to strong speeds by Friday night that will warrant an
expansion of the small craft advisory, and possibly a limited
wind advisory to the notoriously windy areas such as the kohala
mountains area and lanai. But we will see. The trades are slated
to tone down slightly, to moderate to locally strong on Sunday
night. Another round of breezy trades may resumes on Tuesday night
as this same high makes a turn to the south and southwest, back
toward the islands.

The forecast package was updated earlier this evening to reflect
the drier conditions. The islands, especially windward maui and
windward big island, should be getting more showery after
midnight. All islands should be under a wetter trade wind pattern
by this time tomorrow, lasting through Sunday.

The upper low currently 830 miles east-northeast of the big
island, continues to move westward. The ECMWF and GFS models are
in good agreement in the track of this low, where they take it
northward after reach 150w longidtude Saturday evening.

The GFS solution is has the marine layer at 10k area wide tonight,
lifting higher to 14k feet over the big island by Friday
afternoon. It remains in the 10 to 14k foot range to Sunday when
a sharper inversion settles in at 8k feet across the smaller
islands, to 10k feet over the big island, thanks to a mid level
ridge. Although we may see a slight drop off in the trade showers
at this time, Sunday night, orographic influence, will still
maintain a wet trade pattern.

Aviation
Trade winds will be strengthening through the evening and
nighttime hours as high pressure builds far northeast of the state.

Vfr will prevail over most sections of the individual isles, with
brief MVFR conditions possible in windward and mauka areas in
passing showers.

No airmets are currently posted. However, one for low level
turbulence will likely be needed by Friday as trades continue to
increase.

Marine
A 1028 high about 1400 nm northwest of the main hawaiian islands
is forecast to move east at 20 kt. The high will build to 1035 mb
as it reaches a point about 1000 nm north of the area Saturday
night. The pressure gradient near the main hawaiian islands is
already tight enough to produce locally strong easterly trade
winds. A small craft advisory (sca) is in effect through Sunday
for the waters around the big island and maui county exposed to
the strong trades. As the high builds north of the area over the
weekend, trade winds will strengthen further. Wind speeds may
reach near-gale force in maalaea bay and the alenuihaha and
pailolo channels as early as Friday and the SCA will likely be
extended to include most areas of the coastal waters. As the high
moves farther east early next week, wind speeds will gradually
subside.

Surf will gradually build along east facing shores as trade winds
strengthen, but is expected to remain below the advisory
threshold. Surf will remain small along other shores with no
significant swells through the weekend. A pair of swells from
southeast of new zealand will reach the area next week. The first
swell is expected to peak Wednesday and the second on Thursday.

Surf along south facing shores may reach advisory levels.

Hfo watches warnings advisories
Small craft advisory until 6 pm hst Sunday for maalaea bay,
pailolo and alenuihaha channels, waters south of the big island.
