Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Honolulu HI 340 AM HST Fri Jan 22 2021

SYNOPSIS. Strong and gusty trade winds will become especially strong over the weekend, delivering passing clouds and showers, some briefly heavy, mainly dampening windward areas. More widespread rainfall may develop early next week as winds remain strong and shift to the southeast.

DISCUSSION. Windy and locally wet trade wind weather will continue through the weekend, although shower frequency may be somewhat reduced today. The strong winds will shift slightly to the SE early next week, with increasing moisture potentially leading to more widespread clouds and showers from Sunday night into Wednesday.

A broad mid- and upper-level low is nearly stationary to the S of the area, with some of the associated layered clouds over the Big Island and parts of Maui. Cooler than normal mid-level temperatures associated with the low are supporting a somewhat unstable island atmosphere, with radar VWPs indicating the low-level moisture riding in on the trade flow extends as high as 10 thousand feet. With fresh to locally strong trade winds being supported by a 1035 mb high to the distant NE, orographic forcing is helping to generate showers over and immediately downstream of the terrain. Meanwhile, many leeward communities remain mostly dry.

While some drying of the upstream flow may lead to some reduction in windward shower frequency today, it is not expected to last long, and somewhat showery trade wind weather is anticipated over the weekend. Mid-level temperatures will remain cooler than normal, and strong trade winds will strengthen as the high to the distant NE moves closer to the islands. The high will be reinforced Saturday and Sunday, reaching a central pressure over 1040 mb, while a deep- layer low develops to the distant W and NW of the islands. A Wind Advisory may be required for parts of the state over the next couple of days, potentially as early as tonight.

The development of the low to the distant NW of the islands is expected to cause the winds to veer to the SE, while a moisture convergence band extending SE from the low creeps towards the islands from the S. Latest guidance indicates this band will move over portions of the islands from Monday into Wednesday - bringing PWAT close to 2", layered cloudiness, and widespread rainfall. Deep moisture and modest instability are expected, so the chance of thunderstorms appears too low to mention thus far. A drying trend is loosely expected thereafter as the band shifts W of the area. High pressure to the distant NE will continue to support locally strong trade winds.

AVIATION. Breezy to locally strong trades will persist through the forecast period. This will facilitate frequent windward showers and occasional leeward drift, particularly overnight. VFR is forecast to prevail at all forecast points with nothing more than brief MVFR within any heavier showers.

AIRMET Tango is in effect for mechanical lee turbulence below 9kft as well as for mod turbulence between FL250 and FL300.

MARINE. Surface high pressure is centered far to the north-northeast of the area, resulting in moderate to locally strong trade winds. The high will get a reenforcement beginning Saturday, causing trade winds to increase across the entire area through the first part of next week. This, combined with higher seas from both a large northwest swell and the trade wind seas, has prompted expansion of the current Small Craft Advisory to include all coastal waters.

A small northwest swell will linger today. Long-period forerunners from a larger west-northwest (310 degrees) swell will fill in late today and tonight. This swell is expected to peak Saturday with an 18 second period and high-end advisory or low-end warning level surf for most north and west facing shores of the smaller islands. The more westerly direction of this swell will allow west facing shores of the Big Island to experience advisory level surf, likely later in the day Saturday. Swell and surf will lower gradually Sunday and Monday, then become rather small for this time of year on Tuesday and Wednesday.

As the trades strengthen this weekend, rough and short-period surf will gradually rise and a High Surf Advisory is likely along east facing shores for several days, beginning Saturday afternoon.

Small, mainly background, southerly swells are expected over the next several days. A slightly larger, south-southwest swell from the Tasman sea is expected to gradually fill in Monday, peak Monday night and Tuesday, then lower Wednesday through Thursday.

HFO WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Small Craft Advisory until 6 PM HST Sunday for all Hawaiian waters.
