Synopsis
Clouds and showers over kauai and leeward oahu are expected to die
out tonight, leaving scattered showers over the windward sides of
the islands overnight. Trade winds will give way to light and
variable winds for the holiday weekend, resulting in muggy
conditions. Local afternoon sea breezes will bring clouds and
showers to interior and leeward areas, while nighttime land
breezes will lead to clearing. An upper level feature could help
enhance afternoon showers over the islands.

Discussion
Clouds and showers have continued over kauai today, pretty much as
expected. Winds were light enough over leeward oahu that afternoon
sea breezes set up that helped the formation of clouds and showers
in that area. Expect showers in both of these areas to decrease
tonight, however showers will likely linger over kauai.

The high pressure system to the far northwest of the islands is
expect to sink southward and weaken through the weekend. This will
continue the downward trend in the winds, with light and variable
winds expected over the weekend. As the winds lighten, expect more
areas of afternoon sea breezes, and overnight land breezes. During
the afternoon and early evening hours, there will be clouds
building over the interior and leeward areas of the islands in
this flow, with at least partial clearing at night.

A weak mid to upper level trough over the area is helping to bring
some unstable conditions to the islands. A deeper upper level
trough is expected to move in from the northwest Saturday and
Sunday. The models agree with colder upper level temperature
moving in, and generally agree with the coldest temperatures
staying to the northeast of the islands. There will be sufficient
moisture, but no organized bands of moisture are expected. The
light winds will allow for clouds and showers to form over the
interior of the islands during the afternoon hours, and the
increase in instability could lead to some enhanced showers.

The background flow will likely be out of the southeast, which
will bring vog up over some of the smaller islands during the
first half of the new week.

Dewpoints are expected to edge into the upper 60s this weekend,
and close to 70 Monday and Tuesday. Combined with the light winds,
this will bring muggy conditions to the region.

Aviation
A light trade wind flow will continue across the islands through
twentyfour hours and beyond. Clouds and scattered showers will
favor windward slopes and coasts. Partial clearing is expected
overnight across leeward portions of the big island. Elsewhere
shower activity will increase overnight. Mountain obscuration
could become an issue across windward portions of kauai late
tonight.

No airmets currently in effect.

Marine
N area of high pressure located far north northwest of the
islands is driving moderate to fresh trade winds across local
waters late this afternoon. The trade winds are forecast to
gradually weaken across the state on Friday and Saturday as this
high weakens and a low pressure system develops well northeast of
our area. The weakening trades will allow the local wind waves to
taper off. However, a small north northeast swell will support
small surf continuing at the exposed north and east facing shores
through the weekend.

For the long range, models are hinting at another small to
moderate north-northwest (330 deg) swell filling in around Tuesday
due to a low tracking east of the date line over the weekend and
deepening as it passes north of the state on Monday.

The largest south swell this season is forecast to fill build Friday,
peak Friday night and Saturday, then gradually lower beginning
Saturday night. A few of the highest energy forerunners may reach
the south facing shores as early as tonight. A high surf advisory
has been issued for exposed south facing shores beginning Friday.

Please see the coastal hazard message (cfwhfo) on our website for
more information about the surf.

In addition to the building surf along the south facing shores,
coastal flooding impacts associated with record level king tides
will continue each day along all shores through the memorial day
weekend. Beaches and shorelines, boat ramps and docks, and
vulnerable low-lying roads and structures will be threatened by
coastal flooding. Please see the special weather statement
(spshfo) product on our website for more information about the
potential impacts from the high tides and incoming south swell.

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.
