The National Weather service has issued a High Surf Advisory for north face shores through 6am Sunday morning. Surf may increase into the 8-12+ foot range along select north and northwest facign shores. A storm east of the Kamchatka peninsula produced a large long-period northwest swell that has been building overnight. This swell is expected to peak Saturday before slowly subsiding through Monday. A gale north of the area has produced a smaller and shorter-period north swell. That swell is expected to gradually shift out of the north northeast. These two swells will combine to produce advisory level surf along north and west facing shores of the smaller islands through Saturday evening. Gentle to locally fresh trade winds should be expected through Saturday night before winds weaken and shift out of the southeast overnight into Sunday as a trough deepens northwest of the area. A tiny southwesterly swell may show along select south facing shores through the weekend, but don’t expect much.

Weather Outlook for Saturday

A surface ridge north of the area will maintain gentle to moderate trade winds over the islands through the weekend. The atmosphere will remain rather dry through Sunday morning, so rainfall will be light. On Sunday, a trough will deepen northwest of the islands while high pressure builds far to the northeast. The atmosphere will become more moist and unstable and heavy rainfall is possible through the first half of next week, especially on the Big Island and Maui. A ridge will build over the islands during the second half of next week bringing light winds and dry, hazy weather.

A surface ridge north of the area will maintain gentle to moderate trade winds over the islands through the weekend. The atmosphere will remain dry, so rainfall will remain light.

A trough aloft will deepen northwest of Kauai early next week bringing increasing instability. Meanwhile, the low level flow near the islands will shift out of the southeast. Precipitable Water (PW) values will increase as tropical moisture streams in. The combined instability and moisture will bring the threat of heavy showers… especially for the Big Island and Maui Tuesday and Wednesday. The moisture will likely be deep enough and the freezing level low enough for snow on the Big Island summits.

A surface ridge building over the islands during the second half of next week will keep winds light. The atmosphere will stabilize as the trough northwest of the area lifts north. Afternoon clouds may continue, but rainfall is expected to become light. The light winds may allow vog to spread over the smaller islands through the second half of the week.
