Synopsis
A surface ridge will remain north of the area. A weak trough south
of the big island will move west and weaken through this evening.

A front north of the islands will move south through Thursday,
then move away to the west. High pressure will build north of the
area over the weekend.

Discussion
The 8 am surface analysis shows a surface ridge extending from a
high far northeast of the area near 31n130w and another high about
600 miles northwest of the area near 30n163w. A weak trough south
of the big island is moving west around 10 miles an hour and
weakening.

The ridge north of the islands will maintain easterly trade winds
across the area. A poorly organized area of showery low clouds
associated with the trough south of the big island has been moving
over the islands. Most of the showers have moved off to the west
of the islands, but some showers remain upstream of the big island
and kauai. These showers will clear the islands this afternoon.

Trade winds will strengthen a bit through tomorrow as the high
builds northwest of the islands. A front about 1000 miles north of
the islands will move south through Thursday and cause the trades
to weaken. On Friday, the front will move off to the west and the
high will build northeast. Trade winds will strengthen again and
become locally breezy over the weekend.

Aviation
An elongated surface high to the north of the state will help to
maintain moderate easterly trade flow through this afternoon.

Isolated showers, mainly concentrated along windward areas and
over elevated terrain, will become scattered after sundown this
evening. Expect MVFR conditions at times tonight from low clouds
and shra.

No airmets are currently in effect.

Marine
High pressure will strengthen north of the area providing an
uptick in trade winds speeds. Small craft advisory conditions are
expected beginning tonight over the windy waters around maui
county and the big island.

Data from the pacioos buoys show a new long period south swell
continues to build. Surf along south facing shores will continue
to rise today with heights expected to reach high surf advisory
levels. This swell will hold solid through Wednesday then lower
gradually Thursday and Friday. A series of smaller long period
southerly swells are expected early next week.

A small west to northwest swell will linger over the next few
days providing some out of season surf along exposed shorelines.

Strengthening trade winds over the next several days will cause
short period choppy surf to increase along east facing shores
through the remainder of the week and on through the weekend.

Hfo watches warnings advisories
High surf advisory from midnight tonight to 6 am Thursday for
south facing shores of all islands.

Small craft advisory from 6 pm this evening to 6 pm Thursday for
maalaea bay, the pailolo and alenuihaha channels and waters south
of the big island.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
