Synopsis for hawaiian coastal waters.. Surface high pressure far north-northeast of the state will maintain moderate trade winds through early Thursday morning. A surface trough moving from east to west to the north of the state will weaken the trades from Thursday into Friday. The trade winds are expected to strengthen this weekend after the surface trough moves northwest of the area.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Honolulu HI 831 PM HST Wed Jul 15 2020

SYNOPSIS. Trade winds will gradually trend down Thursday into Saturday as a trough passes north of the islands. Lighter winds combined with increasing moisture will translate to warm and humid conditions through this time. Although most of the shower coverage will focus over windward and mountain locations, some leeward showers will be expected, especially where afternoon sea breezes develop. A return of breezy trade winds and drier conditions is anticipated Sunday into next week.

DISCUSSION. Latest surface analysis showed the subtropical ridge anchored north of the area and a remnant trough associated with former Tropical Storm Cristina far northeast of the Big Island. Satellite-estimated precipitable water (PW) imagery reflected this and depicted a large area of higher moisture over and around this feature (2+ inch PWs). The short-term guidance remains in decent agreement and shows this weak surface trough continuing westward and passing north of the islands Friday through Saturday. The pressure gradient will respond and weaken through this time beginning Thursday, which will allow the trades to trend down into the light to moderate range. Warm and humid conditions will result due to a combination of the lighter winds and increasing moisture/dewpoints (lower 70s). Although most of the shower coverage will focus over windward and mountain locations with the background trades in place, some leeward showers will remain possible, especially where afternoon sea breezes develop. Some showers may be briefly heavy in some locations.

Although breezy trade winds are expected to return by Sunday, another area of moisture moving up the island chain from east to west will be enough to keep the rainfall chances in place, mostly for windward and mountain locations. Drier trade wind conditions are anticipated early next week as the area of moisture shifts to the west.

AVIATION. High pressure to the north-northeast of Hawaii is maintaining the southeast to east tradewind pattern we have been experiencing. Winds should be relatively light over the next few days. Not a lot of moisture and the showers that we do see should be confined to windward mauka areas. The MVFR conditions related to these showers should only be passing in nature.

There are no AIRMETs in effect and none anticipated through this forecast period.

MARINE. Surface high pressure centered far north-northeast of the area is maintaining moderate trade winds across most of the island chain early this evening. A weak surface trough, which is the remnant of former East Pacific Tropical Cyclone Cristina, is evident about 700 nm east-northeast of Hilo. As this feature continues to move westward at 10 to 15 kt, it will disrupt the pressure gradient across the islands from Thursday through Friday. This will cause the trade winds to weaken during the next couple of days. As a result, local sea breeze circulations may develop over some leeward nearshore waters Thursday and Friday afternoon.

By this weekend, the forecast models indicate the surface trough will eventually dissipate northwest of the islands. At the same time, surface high pressure will build far north-northeast of the state. This will cause the trade winds to gradually strengthen from Saturday through Sunday. The latest forecast suggests that Small Craft Advisory conditions may develop over the typically windier waters adjacent to the islands of Maui County and the Big Island by Sunday.

No significant swells are expected through early next week. Small south swell energy will continue to produce small background surf along south facing shores through Friday. A small, long-period south-southwest swell may cause a slight bump in surf heights along south facing shores this weekend. The weakening trade winds will cause surf to decline along east facing shores during the next few days. A slight increase in surf along east facing shores is expected later this weekend as the trade winds strengthen. Surf along north facing shores will remain nearly flat through early next week.

HFO WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.
