couple thousand miles east of the state but it is on the move… winds at miles an hour and about 2700 miles ESE of hilo… and despite some wind shear its not weakening much…. expecting to strengthen over the weekend and then lose steam heading into next work at that point still more than 1500 miles away…so a ways a way but we’ll have to watch what it does… surf…Surf along south facing shores will be 3 to 5 feet through Saturday. Surf along north facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet through Saturday. Surf along west facing shores will be 2 to 3 feet through Saturday. Surf along east facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet through Saturday. Outlook through Thursday June 4: a large south swell will begin to fill in Saturday night. Surf will exceed the advisory threshold along the southern shores Sunday through at least Monday. The swell will begin a gradual decline on Tuesday, with a smaller south swell expected on Thursday. Small short period northwest swell will continue through the period. Although trade winds are attempting to become re- established, they look to remain on the lighter end of the spectrum into the middle of next week, as the surface high shifts NE, and a weak remnant of the surface trough NE of the Big Island shifts W over the other islands. It may briefly sharpen in response to a progressive mid- level trough that sharpens W of the area over the weekend, and passes from W to E across the area early next week. Combined with ample low-level moisture, this could result in enhanced showers, both in the typical windward/mauka areas, and over interior/leeward areas along local sea breeze boundaries during the afternoons. Latest model guidance indicates a fairly seasonable trade wind pattern for the middle and latter part of the next week, with light to moderate trade winds. Sports time with Robert Kekaula.
