Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Honolulu HI 819 PM HST Sun Jul 12 2020

SYNOPSIS. A high pressure system north of the islands will keep moderate to locally breezy trade winds in the forecast through Monday. An upper level disturbance will line up with a low level trough passing from east to west across the state. Expect increasing shower activity tonight through Monday as both system move across the state. Trade winds will decrease in strength starting on Tuesday as the high pressure center drifts further north away from the Hawaiian Islands. These lighter trades will allow light sea breezes to develop over shelters leeward areas each day lasting through the end of next week. Stronger trade winds are forecast to return by Saturday.

DISCUSSION. This evenings satellite imagery shows an upper level closed low roughly 600 miles north of the Big Island drifting slowly westward along the axis of an upper level trough. The subtropical jet stream continues to spread cirrus clouds from west to east across the islands. In the lower levels clouds continue to move in an east to west direction with the moderate to breezy trade winds. Several bands of unstable open cell cumulus clouds are shown along a low level 700 mb trough axis moving into the islands from the east. Low level convergence near this trough will link up with upper level lift from an upper level trough over the islands, increasing shower activity from east to west through Monday. Periods of wet trade wind showers remain in the forecast for the next 24 hours.

In the big picture, a high pressure system north of the Hawaiian Islands will keep moderate to locally breezy trade winds in the forecast through Monday. By Tuesday this high pressure system drifts northeast away from the islands, decreasing local wind speeds, and allowing thermally driven land/sea breezes to develop over leeward areas. This light wind speed pattern will continue through Friday. High pressure builds back in by Saturday with another increase in showers just in time for the weekend.

The forecast grids this evening look good, no evening updates are expected.

AVIATION. An elongated ridge of high pressure north of the state will maintain moderate to occasionally breezy trades across the islands tonight. Scattered to numerous showers will mainly affect windward locations and bring periods of MVFR conditions due to lowered ceilings and visibility.

AIRMET Tango remains in effect below 8000 feet for south thru west of mountains due to tempo moderate turbulence.

MARINE. High pressure north-northeast of the islands will keep fresh to strong trades in place through Monday. As a result, a Small Craft Advisory (SCA) remains posted for the typically windy waters around Maui County and the Big Island. A couple troughs of low pressure will pass by to the north of the state Tuesday through Friday, easing the trades into the light to moderate range in most areas, with fresh trades holding in the typically windier channel waters. Trades should then ramp back up to locally strong levels next weekend as high pressure strengthens far to the north of the island chain.

There will be a series of small southerly swells over the next several days that will keep south shore surf near of just above background levels. A slightly larger long period south swell may fill in Friday and Saturday. East facing shores will continue to experience short period choppy surf produced by the trade winds. A small but slightly longer period east swell produced from former tropical cyclone Cristina, may provide a slight uptick in surf heights during the late Tuesday through Thursday time frame. No other significant swells are expected.

HFO WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Small Craft Advisory until 6 PM HST Monday for Maalaea Bay- Pailolo Channel-Alenuihaha Channel-Big Island Leeward Waters-Big Island Southeast Waters.

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.
