A surface ridge will remain nearly stationary north of the area and maintain trade winds over the islands. A surface trough moving over the area from the southeast will bring showery weather and lighter winds through the middle of the coming week. Winds will strengthen as the surface trough moves west but a trough aloft and lingering tropical moisture will keep showers active through the second half of the week.

Tropical Storm Lester continues to move away from the Hawaiian Islands, taking away most of the heavy weather with it. Its departure has left us with one more feature that all islands will be dealing with for the next 24 hours, and that is a band of weather that includes isolated thunderstorms. The last of this band will clear Kauai by Monday afternoon. A stable air mass will fill in behind with a trade wind flow and persist through the rest of the new week.

Moderate trade winds will continue for the next couple of days as high pressure persists north of the state. A much drier airmass is expected over the islands today and tonight, with shower activity limited primarily to windward and mauka locales. By the middle of the week, a more unsettled weather pattern is expected to overspread the state, as we begin to feel impacts from Hurricane Madeline. Hurricane Lester may affect the islands over the upcoming Labor Day weekend, keeping the conditions unsettled across the Aloha state.

Winds will gradually decrease and veer toward the southeast during the next couple of days as high pressure weakens far to the northeast of the state and a trough develops northwest of the state. This will allow increasingly widespread afternoon seabreezes to develop. Showers will become more frequent, especially during the afternoons and early evenings, as a moist and somewhat unstable airmass moves across the area. Locally heavy rainfall and isolated thunderstorms will be possible on the Big Island during the afternoons early this week. High pressure will rebuild northeast of the area late this week, with a drier trade wind weather pattern returning to the islands Thursday and Friday.

Sunday, August 21, 2016

High pressure well northeast of the state will keep a light to moderate trade wind flow in place through Sunday. The trades will weaken during the first half of next week, with some deep tropical moisture overspreading the islands and resulting in some more unsettled weather. A more typical trade wind pattern will then return late next week as high pressure strengthens well to the north of the island chain.

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 passing low aloft will make the atmosphere unstable. This combination will keep the weather rainier than normal over much of the next week. Updated: 07/29/2016 9:37 am HST
