Detailed Forecast

Synopsis

Locally breezy trades will focus clouds and showers over windward areas through the week. An increase in showers is expected Wednesday and Thursday.

Discussion

A stable and locally breezy trade wind flow is in place this morning. Windward showers are on a brief decline as a pocket of moisture in the trade winds is in the process of clearing the islands to the west. Ridging aloft is building in from the east as a small and weak upper level trough moves west of Kauai. As a result, trade winds have picked up slightly and will remain elevated today. Also, strong east to southeast winds have been observed on the Haleakala summit overnight and are expected to develop on the Big Island summits this morning. A Wind Advisory remains in place through the afternoon for the Haleakala summit and through tonight on the Big Island summits, but this advisory may be dropped earlier on the Big Island if winds fail to materialize.
Moderate to breezy trade winds will continue through the upcoming week, and a rather typical pattern of mainly windward rainfall will prevail much of the time. An increase in rainfall is possible Wednesday and Thursday as a larger batch of enhanced low level moisture is accompanied by another weak upper level trough. Heavy rainfall is not expected, though passing showers may become more prevalent over parched leeward areas.

Aviation

Breezy easterly trade winds will continue through the 24-hr period, with clouds and showers favoring windward and mauka locations overnight through the morning periods. A large area of low clouds that led to AIRMET Sierra for mountain obscuration over windward portions of the Big Island through much of the night has begun to scattered out. Observations reflect that with improving trends and a return of VFR conditions as of this discussion time. If this persist through the early morning hours, AIRMET Sierra will be lifted in the 530 AM forecast package. Elsewhere, MVFR CIGS continue for windward areas of Maui County and Oahu and may persist through the early morning hours before scattering out.
AIRMET Tango is in effect for low-level mechanical turbulence over and just downwind of mountain ranges.

Marine

A high pressure ridge remains in place north of the region through Friday. Moderate to locally strong trade winds will continue through the week reaching Small Craft Advisory (SCA) thresholds in the typical windier eastern waters and channels. The SCA was extended for the Kaiwi Channel today. SCA conditions will continue for windier eastern waters near Maui and Hawaii Counties through 6 PM HST Tuesday. This SCA will likely continue for these eastern waters through next Friday.
Small surf heights will continue for the foreseeable future. Background south swell will continue through Wednesday. A slight bump in long period southwest swell energy (210-220 direction) will show up along south facing shores from Thursday into Friday. A small medium period west-northwest (300 direction) swell will fill into the islands tonight through Monday. This first swell will then slowly fade through Wednesday. Another larger long period west-northwest swell (300 direction) arrives in the islands on Thursday producing out of season fun size surf along north and west facing shores lingering into the weekend. Choppy surf along east facing shores will build closer to seasonal averages through the week as trade winds strengthen this weekend.
