Synopsis
A trade wind weather pattern can be expected over the next few
days, thanks to high pressure far north of the area. Clouds and
passing light showers will tend to favor windward and mauka areas
with most leeward locations remaining dry. Trade winds will become
lighter during the middle and latter half of next week as the high
moves off to the northeast. A few passing light showers can be
expected mainly over windward and mauka area.

Discussion
Satellite imagery shows patches of low clouds embedded in low
level easterly trade wind flow. This is providing for some passing
light showers over windward and mauka areas with most leeward
locations remaining dry. Expect these conditions to continue
through the day today with some clouds and showers possible for
the leeward big island slopes during the afternoon and evening
hours.

Surface high pressure is centered far north of the state. This
places the islands in a moderate to locally breezy trade wind
environment. Aloft, there is a mid level ridge in place over the
area. This is providing for a rather stable airmass to be in place
across the state. Thus any showers that do form will tend to be
on the lighter side due to inhibited cloud growth. Precipitable
water values are currently running between 1.2 inches and 1.4
inches across the area. However satellite derived precipitable
water values of 1.6 to 1.8 inches is present just east of maui and
the big island. Model guidance shows this higher moisture content
moving into the eastern islands later today and tonight. This may
cause a bit of an uptick in showers over windward areas of maui
the the big island this afternoon and tonight with lesser of an
increase in shower activity expected over the rest of the state.

The surface high will continue to keep moderate to breezy trade
winds in place through Monday while the upper ridge will keep
inversion heights low with only light windward and mauka showers
expected. Afternoon and evening clouds and showers are also
expected over the leeward big island slopes.

During the Tuesday through Friday time frame, the high is forecast
to weaken and move off to the northeast. This will cause our trade
winds to weaken to the light to locally moderate range. Localized
land and sea breezes may develop under this lighter trade wind
regime. Meanwhile, the state is forecast to lie between a mid
level ridge northwest of the state and a mid level trough just
east of the state. Thus instability will be limited under this
scenario. Shower activity will be highly dependent on incoming
moisture availability and primarily focused over windward and
mauka area. Daytime heating may allow for some afternoon shower
development over interior areas as well as over the leeward big
island slopes.

Aviation
High pressure center still north-northeast of hawaii and will
continue to bring breezy easterly tradewinds to the state.

Although we haven't had any recent reports of turbulence, will
keep airmet tango in effect for low level turbulence below
8,000ft. Airmet tango will probably be in effect through Sunday.

Expect showers and low level clouds to be mainly confined to the
north thru east sections of all islands on the windward slopes
but any MVFR conditions should be passing. Otherwise, expectVFR
conditions for the rest of the state.

Marine
Fresh to strong easterly trade winds, already in place across big
island and maui waters, will spread westward on Sunday as high
pressure holds far north of the state and a surface trough
northwest of kauai moves away. The small craft advisory (sca) that
is in place for the typically windy waters around the big island
and maui will need to be briefly expanded to additional waters.

Trades will gradually decrease during the first half of the work
week as the high weakens and drifts to the northeast. The SCA will
likely be trimmed back to the typically windy waters on Monday
and should be dropped entirely by Tuesday.

South shore surf will be below summer average for the next few
days, and a southwest swell out of the tasman sea is due to arrive
Tuesday and peak Wednesday and Thursday. Islands in the southwest
pacific usually block a significant amount of energy from swell
sources out of the tasman sea, but we could see inconsistent sets
above august average during the peak. This swell will decrease
heading into next weekend.

Rough, short period trade wind energy is coming in at 6 ft 7
seconds, which is right around august average. Expect a slight
and brief increase in east shore surf on Sunday as trades
strengthen, followed by a gradual decline to near average
conditions on Monday and well below august average for the
remainder of the week. Small north shore surf will fade tomorrow
as the current small pulse of northwest swell diminishes.

Hfo watches warnings advisories
Small craft advisory until 6 pm hst Sunday for maalaea bay-
pailolo channel-alenuihaha channel-big island leeward waters-big
island southeast waters.
