Marine Weather and Tides
Princeville, 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
A light trade wind pattern will continue today with afternoon
sea breezes along western slopes of all islands. Some vog
concentrations will spread over the smaller islands through
tonight. A building high pressure system across the central
pacific will increase trade winds on Thursday, pushing any vog
emissions towards the southwest away from smaller islands. Trade
winds will become breezy to locally windy by Friday and continue
through next week with increasing clouds and showers favoring
windward slopes and mountain areas.

Discussion
A weak high pressure ridge remains to the north of the state with
light trade wind flow and daytime onshore sea breezes along
western slopes of all islands with only isolated showers in the
forecast for today. A remnant front lingers just north of kauai
this morning as low level wind flow just north of the state has
become more southeasterly. These winds will drive the cloud band
with this front away from the islands. Vog (volcanic smog)
emissions will also drift westward over most of the smaller
islands today, possibly as far north as oahu and kauai later this
afternoon. The good news is that stronger trade winds will return
on Thursday, pushing the vog towards the southwest away from the
smaller islands.

The larger scale weather pattern changes on Thursday as a strong
surface high pressure center builds into the central pacific.

Trade wind speeds will increase through Friday, becoming breezy
to locally windy across the islands. Stronger trade winds will
produce higher chances for clouds and showers favoring typical
windward and mauka areas with brief periods of showers drifting
into leeward sections. Expect this trade wind weather pattern
with stronger winds to last through the end of next week. Long
range weather forecast guidance remains in good agreement with
giving us high confidence in this extended trade wind weather
pattern.

Aviation
Gentle trade winds and mainly dry weather will continue across
the state today, withVFR conditions prevailing. Isolated
MVFR ceilings will be possible on windward slopes, and areas of
MVFR visibilities will be possible across parts of the big island
due to volcanic emissions from kilauea.

No airmets are currently in effect or anticipated today.

Marine
Winds will remain light with land and sea breezes expected near
the coasts once again today. Fresh to strong trades are forecast
to return through the second half of the week as high pressure builds
far northeast of the area. A small craft advisory will likely be
needed by Thursday for winds reaching 25 knots in the windy areas
around the big island and maui.

Surf will remain small with no significant swells anticipated into
the upcoming weekend. Surf will gradually build along east facing
shores as trade winds strengthen later late tonight through the
upcoming weekend. Overlapping swells from a storm southeast of new
zealand may reach the area early next week. We will get a better
idea of the size of this swell over the weekend as the swell
reaches the buoy near american samoa.

Hfo watches warnings advisories
None.

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.
