Winds and seas are expected to remain below small craft advisory levels for the next few days as an upper-level low weakens the pressure gradient over the area. The trade winds will strengthen again by the middle of next week as the low moves off to the north. Small to moderate east-northeasterly windswell may provide something to ride along select windward shores around waist to maybe chest-high levels but it will likely be sloppy and choppy. Very small mix of old south-southwest swell and a new southwest swell will only provide tiny to small surf at select south shore breaks. There will be a series of small south swells into next week but surf will remain below the advisory level. Only small surf is expected along north and west facing shores.

Weather Outlook for Saturday

A surface high to the north will keep trade winds blowing over the islands through the coming week. The trades will carry areas of tropical moisture over the islands while a low aloft will make the atmosphere unstable. This combination will keep the weather rainier than normal through next week.

A 1033 MB surface high is centered 1520 miles north northeast of Honolulu at 42N 148W. The high will remain nearly stationary with little change through next week. The pressure gradient southwest of the high will keep trade winds blowing over the main Hawaiian Islands.

Water vapor imagery shows a low aloft 750 miles northeast of Honolulu at 28N148W moving toward the north northwest around 5 mph. As this low moves by the islands through early next week, it will weaken the trade winds and raise the temperature inversions. Higher inversions mean more-active showers. Showery low clouds extend far upstream from the islands. An area of tropical moisture enhanced by the low aloft will help boost shower activity through early next week. Some of the clouds may be remnants of Hurricane Georgette with remnants of Hurricane Frank following behind. A bigger increase in showers is likely Thursday when another area of tropical moisture moves over the islands. Showers may increase again over the following weekend as more tropical moisture moves over the islands from the east and a low aloft digs south and destabilizes the atmosphere.
