Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Honolulu HI Issued by National Weather Service San Francisco CA 1004 AM HST Thu Jul 29 2021

SYNOPSIS. Moderate to breezy easterly trade winds will strengthen later today through the weekend. Clouds and showers will favor windward and mauka locations, with the best chances through the overnight and early morning periods. A return of drier trade wind conditions is anticipated Friday through early next week.

DISCUSSION. A ridge of high pressure will continue to build across the island today pushing the upper level trough that brought cloudy conditions to the western end of the state yesterday northward. High clouds have mostly cleared across the state with the exception of the Big Island that will continue to see high clouds from a disturbance south of the islands. At the surface, trade winds have returned to the region and are expected to remain moderate through tonight before strengthening on Friday as high pressure builds north of the state. A large area of moisture to the east is forecast to move into the eastern end of the state today. Anticipate windward and mauka showers through the morning hours as this area of moisture approaches the islands. In its wake, satellite data reflects dry air farther upstream of the Big Island. Guidance has initialized well with this and has the dry air moving through from east to west tonight through Friday. This dry air combined with rising upper heights will lead to more of a suppressed and stable environment this weekend, which will limit cloud/shower windward coverage. Similar conditions will carry into next week.

AVIATION. Surface high pressure north of the islands will maintain a moderate to locally strong trade wind flow through at least tonight. AIRMET Tango for low level turb, south through west of mountains, will continue through tonight as well. Scattered to broken low clouds and showers riding in with the trades upwind of the islands will result in brief MVFR ceiling and vis, favoring the windward and mountain areas. The lee side of the Big Island can expect a couple of afternoon and evening showers as well. Tops of these clouds and showers will be around 8k feet. No other AIRMETS are anticipated today.

MARINE. A high pressure system far north of the region will slowly drift eastward and build from Friday into the weekend. Trade winds will strengthen from Friday onward. A Small Craft Advisory (SCA) remains in effect for the typically windy waters around Maui County and the Big Island. This SCA may be expanded in coverage over the next two days.

Surf along east facing shores will remain small through Friday, then trend up over the weekend in response to strengthening trades locally and upstream of the Hawaiian Islands.

Southerly swell activity will remain rather low for this time of the year with just background swells expected from the south and southeast. Nearly flat conditions will continue for north and west facing shores into early next week. Buoy 51001 observations are not showing any reflection of the potential small, west-northwest swell this morning, which supports the summertime conditions continuing.

HFO WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Small Craft Advisory until 6 PM HST Friday for Maalaea Bay- Pailolo Channel-Alenuihaha Channel-Big Island Leeward Waters-Big Island Southeast Waters.
