Synopsis
Daytime sea breezes and nighttime land breezes will prevail
through Friday as high pressure remains far northeast of the area
and a frontal boundary remains stalled northwest of the state. A
more typical trade wind weather pattern is expected over the
memorial day weekend as the front weakens and high pressure build
back in toward the area. Clouds and passing showers will tend to
favor windward and mauka areas.

High pressure is currently centered far northeast of the state
while a frontal boundary is located a few hundred miles west
northwest of kauai. This places the islands in a light east to
southeast wind environment. Generally dry conditions prevail
across the area with just a few light passing showers occurring
mainly over windward and mauka locations. Under this light wind
regime, daytime sea breezes and nighttime land breezes will
prevail through tonight. Some increase in shower activity may
occur during the afternoon hours due to sea breeze convergence.

The high and front are forecast to remain in place through Friday,
thus the daytime sea breeze and nighttime land breeze environment
will continue. Satellite imagery shows a band of showery clouds
just upwind of maui and the big island. This band of moisture will
likely move through the area tonight and early Thursday. Shower
activity will likely increase over windward and mauka areas
especially over the east end of the state. Heavy showers are not
expected since a mid level ridge is in place over the area. This
area of moisture will likely exit the state by midday Thursday
with drier conditions expected in its wake.

As we head into memorial day weekend, the front northwest of the
area will weaken and the high to the northeast will build back in.

This will allow for a more typical trade wind weather pattern to
make a return. The airmass will remain rather stable so passing
showers will mainly occur over windward and mauka areas especially
during the night and early morning hours.

Aviation
A front has stalled west of kauai as high pressure builds to the
east of the island chain, allowing for light southeasterly winds
across much of the area through the day. Clouds will develop
along interior and mauka sections of the state this afternoon with
isolated -shra, butVFR conditions are expected to prevail
elsewhere.

Overnight, an area of moisture will make its way toward the big
island and maui as the high continues to move closer to the
state. An airmet for mountain obscuration may be needed by
tomorrow. Winds will strengthen a bit and turn more out of the ese
before finally becoming more easterly late Thursday into Friday.

Marine
A surface ridge will persist and strengthen north of the state, while
a stalled front lingers northwest of the offshore waters. This will
produce easterly trade winds to small craft advisory speeds around
the big island today, with fresh southeast winds over maui county
windward waters. Remaining waters are mostly blocked from the southeast
flow, so winds will be gentle and variable there. The front and ridge
will slowly shift northwest through the week, causing winds to back
out of the east over the smaller islands by Friday, with easterly
trades persisting through next week.

Small to moderate surf will continue along south facing shores through
Friday. A fairly large, long-period swell is forecast to reach the
coastal waters Saturday, and may produce surf near advisory level
along south facing shores through memorial day. A smaller, reinforcing
south swell is possible Tuesday. Surf along north facing shores will
be quite small through Thursday, with small to moderate swells into
the middle of next week. Surf along east facing shores will remain
small through the middle of the week. As winds strengthen northeast
of the area during the second half of this week, surf will build
along east facing shores.

Hfo watches warnings advisories
Small craft advisory until 6 am hst Thursday for alenuihaha
channel-big island windward waters-big island leeward waters-big
island southeast waters.

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.
