Synopsis
A front passing well north of the islands will weaken our trades
overnight and Wednesday. A relatively dry airmass over the state
should allow for mostly clear skies tonight into Wednesday morning.

Some afternoon clouds and a few showers are possible with the sea
breezes on Wednesday, but most areas will remain rain-free. A wet
trade wind pattern is expected for the latter half of the week
and into the weekend, as high pressure builds far to our north,
and a rather strong upper trough moves over the islands.

Discussion
A weakening ridge of high pressure extending wsw-ene about 500
miles N of honolulu is maintaining diminishing, locally breezy
trades this afternoon. A patch of lingering moisture and low
level convergence over the kauai channel and kauai has been
bringing clouds and showers to kauai today, with fine weather
across the remainder of the state today with sub-1" precipitable
water dominating. A number of changes are ahead in our weather for
the coming days, however.

A zonal flow pattern over the north pacific will push a fast-
moving front well north of the state tonight and wed. The
resulting weaker pressure gradient will cause the trades to
temporarily vanish late tonight into wed. This will give the
islands light land breezes overnight which will allow for mostly
clear skies for the vast majority of the state. Hard to completely
rule out a windward shower or two, but the point probability for
measurable rainfall seems quite low. The dry air in place should
continue into wed, so daytime sea breezes should be mostly benign,
with afternoon clouds only yielding a shower or two over a few
interior spots.

A new high pressure area far to the NW will approach close enough
to begin restrengthening the pressure gradient Wednesday night.

Locally breezy trades will return by thu. At the same time, a
seasonably strong digging upper trough with cold mid-level air
will begin to affect our weather, enhancing any incoming shower
areas. The upper trough will move over the islands and may develop
an upper low that will linger into the weekend. Some of the models
show trailing moisture from an old frontal band getting involved
over the weekend too. All in all, it looks like a fairly
persistent wet trade wind pattern, especially for windward areas
which could see some locally heavy rainfall at times. With mlcape
approaching 1500 j kg, we may even have a few thunderstorms. A
mention of both have been added to the grids for some areas thu
night through Sat night.

The upper trough should begin to weaken and move E by sun,
allowing for gradually improving weather and relatively drier,
locally windy trades into the first part of next week as a strong
high passes to our n.

Aviation
A typical trade wind pattern will persist into this evening, with
east-northeast flow pushing low-topped stratocumulus clouds up
against the windward slopes and coasts. Isolated MVFR conditions
are possible in passing showers, mostly near kauai. Otherwise,
vfr conditions will prevail.

High pressure to the northeast will continue to weaken and shift
eastward tonight. Winds will become light tonight through
Wednesday with nighttime land breezes and afternoon sea breezes
for most locations across the state.

Marine
A front will approach from the northwest tonight and the ridge
north of the islands will shift south and weaken. Winds will
shift out of the southeast and weaken. Winds will become light
and variable tomorrow around the smaller islands. The front will
dissipate Thursday as a new high builds northwest of the area.

Trade winds will strengthen, and a SCA will likely be needed by
Friday for strong trade winds in the waters around the big island
and maui.

A northwest swell reached over 10 and a half feet late this
morning at the buoys 180 nm NW of kauai. The swell should be big
enough to produce high surf advisory (hsa) level surf along
northwest facing shores of the smaller islands through tomorrow.

As this swell subsides Thursday night, a slightly bigger northwest
swell will likely boost surf up over the hsa threshold again. A
smaller north swell will help reinforce this decaying northwest
swell over the weekend.

As trade winds strengthen late this week surf will build along
east facing shores, but will remain below the advisory threshold.

Surf will remain small along south facing shores.

Hfo watches warnings advisories
High surf advisory until 6 pm hst Wednesday for N and W facing
shores of niihau and kauai and N facing shores of oahu, molokai,
and maui.
