Strong surface high pressure centered far N of the main Hawaiian islands is keeping the area under a trade wind weather regime. In the meantime, water vapor imagery still depicts a persisting weak upper level trough over the area, which may keep enhancing the trade showers especially at night. Short range model solutions indicate a gradual reduction of pressure gradients during the next couple of days as the high N of the area migrates E and weakens. This will likely bring a decrease in trade wind speeds, which will remain moderate through the rest of the work week. The long range model solutions suggest an even stronger high pressure system building behind the current one, which intensifies as it moves N of the islands by Saturday. This should bring back stronger trades with breezy conditions returning during the upcoming weekend. In general, expect trade wind showers to continue through the rest of the forecast period with rainfall focusing over windward and mountain areas. Only exception will be the leeward side of the Big Island where afternoon clouds and showers are expected as onshore develops each day.
