Synopsis for hawaiian coastal waters.. A front will gradually move towards the area from the northwest, resulting in a light southeast to south wind pattern over the islands. A broad area of south to southeasterly convergent flow will set up over the state starting this weekend. This will likely bring unsettled weather from late Saturday into early next week.

Area Forecast Discussion . CORRECTED National Weather Service Honolulu HI 1158 AM HST Fri Apr 3 2020

SYNOPSIS. An area of low pressure northwest of the state and a ridge of high pressure to the east will keep a light wind regime in place across the islands through next week. Showers will favor the interior of the islands during the afternoon and evening hours. Some deeper moisture will get drawn northward Sunday through early next week, bringing the potential for some locally heavy downpours and a few thunderstorms, mainly during the afternoon and evening hours.

DISCUSSION. Currently, the state of Hawaii sits between an area of low pressure located northwest of the state and high pressure located northeast of the state. This has led to a light wind regime for most areas and will lead to onshore sea breezes this afternoon and overnight land breezes. Interior showers will develop once again this afternoon and could cause a brief period of some moderate rainfall. Due to some instability aloft, there is a chance of some heavier showers and possibly an isolated thunderstorm over the Big Island slopes, but they should be decreasing during the evening hours.

For tonight and Saturday, the low pressure northwest of the state will gradually inch closer and will bring increasing showers over Kauai. At this time, the showers look to be more light to moderate in intensity through Saturday morning, with some brief heavy showers in the afternoon. Over rest of the state, a similar weather pattern to today is expected for Saturday, with afternoon showers over interior areas.

There is still quite a bit of uncertainty for what the weather will be like on Sunday, but the overall pattern would be for increasing showers as the low pressure to our northwest approaches. But for the most part, the shower activity will be during the afternoon.

Starting Sunday night and through Monday, guidance is in fairly good agreement with a short-wave trough swinging through the the state. The convergence area of this trough looks to set up over the western half of the state. The added instability from the short-wave will likely lead to heavier showers and possibly a few thunderstorms over the area. Over the eastern half of the state, a land breeze/sea breeze weather pattern will likely persist through Monday morning. But the combination of the sea breeze and the short wave trough will lead to afternoon shower development. Although the greatest rainfall will likely be over Kauai and Oahu, periods of heavy rainfall will be possible for the Big Island and Maui County Monday afternoon into Monday night.


AVIATION. Low pressure approaching from the NW has turned low level winds from the S to SE directions. Expect afternoon sea breezes and nighttime downslope flow over many terminals. Expect cloud buildups this afternoon with some embedded showers and brief MVFR conditions. Partial clearing is expected overnight. Moderate turbulence AIRMET from FL250 to FL410 is in place due to a W to E subtropical jet over the islands.

MARINE. The current light wind regime is expected to continue well into next week. The the overall background flow will generally be from the southeast to south as a front slowly approaches the area from the northwest. The strongest winds will be through across the windward and and southern Big Island waters.

A broad area of convergent southeast to south flow is expected to set up through the state. This will result in a period of unsettled weather with locally heavy rainfall and possibly thunderstorms from late Saturday into early next week.

A new north-northwest swell building Saturday will produce moderate surf along most north and west shores over the weekend. Surf is expected to remain below the High Surf Advisory (HSA) criteria. A reinforcing west-northwest swell will build Sunday night and Monday, followed by another northwest swell late Tuesday. This series of swells should keep moderate surf along the north and west facing shores into the middle of next week.

The current southeast swell will continue to subside over the next few days. Long period background swells from the south should keep small surf along the south facing shores into next week.

HFO WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.
