Synopsis
Moderate to breezy trades will continue through the weekend,
periodically delivering clouds and showers to windward areas while
most leeward areas remain mostly dry. Trade wind speeds may diminish
by the middle of next week.

Discussion
As a weak surface trough N of the islands weakens and drifts NW over
the next couple of days, surface high pressure will strengthen far n
of the area, and trade wind speeds will increase slightly. The
locally breezy trade winds will continue through early next week,
but are then expected to weaken by mid-week as the high weakens and
a low passes far N of the area. With no major sources of moisture or
instability expected through the weekend, trade winds will
periodically deliver clouds and showers that will primarily dampen
windward areas, while most leeward areas remain dry. More
significant moisture areas may become embedded in the trade flow in
about a week, but confidence in that is close to zero.

Latest satellite images show an area of broken to overcast stable
and showery low clouds immediately upstream of the islands, but
skies over most island areas are mostly sunny to partly cloudy, with
radar detecting only isolated showers. Model guidance indicates that
this moisture patch will move over kauai and oahu later today into
tonight, fueling a few windward showers before moving W of the area
by morning. Another slug of moisture passing S of the big island may
fuel some windward showers Saturday night, but nothing significant
in the way of accumulation or coverage is expected.

Aviation
High pressure remains north of hawaii with nothing to disrupt the
easterly trade winds which will continue most likely through the
weekend.VFR conditions will dominate most areas across the state
with maybe a few passing, infrequent MVFR conditions on the windward
side of the mountains with clouds and maybe a shower and lower
visibility.

It will be breezy again this afternoon so there is a chance for some
pockets of low level turbulence south and west of the mountains.

Other than that, no airmets are expected through this forecast
period.

Marine
High pressure to the north will maintain moderate to locally strong
trades through the weekend. A small craft advisory (sca) is posted
through Sunday for the typically windy waters around maui and the
big island. Another front is forecast to pass north of the state
next week with east trade winds weakening.

The current south swell will continue to subside today with mainly
background energy expected over the weekend into early next week. A
larger southwest swell is expected to arrive Tuesday and will likely
peak Wednesday or Thursday near advisory levels.

Small northwest swells will linger over the next few days providing
some out of season surf along north facing shores. Breezy trades
will continue to produce small choppy surf along east facing shores
over the next few days.

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.

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.
