HAWAII EXTENDED FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS WEATHER PREDICTION CENTER COLLEGE PARK MD
754 AM EDT TUE MAY 05 2015

VALID 00Z WED MAY 06 2015 - 00Z WED MAY 13 2015

LATEST GUIDANCE DISPLAYS GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE OVERALL FORECAST
THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK.  EXPECT MODERATE TO BRISK TRADES FROM NOW
THROUGH NEXT TUE.  HIGH PRESSURE INITIALLY TO THE NORTHEAST OF THE
STATE WILL GIVE WAY TO A HIGH TRACKING ACROSS THE CENTRAL PACIFIC
AND SETTLING OVER A POSITION TO THE NORTHEAST OF THE AREA BY
SUN-TUE.  THIS LATTER HIGH MAY SUPPORT SOMEWHAT STRONGER TRADES BY
THE WEEKEND.  DURING THE COURSE OF THE PERIOD RIDGING ALOFT TO THE
NORTHEAST OF THE STATE SHOULD WEAKEN WHILE ANOTHER RIDGE BUILDS TO
THE WEST/NORTHWEST, LEADING TO A MORE NORTHERLY COMPONENT OF FLOW
ALOFT OVER THE STATE.  PRIMARILY WINDWARD FOCUSED SHOWERS SHOULD
BE OF LIGHT TO MODERATE INTENSITY MOST OF THE TIME WITH
PRECIPITABLE WATER VALUES FORECAST TO BE IN THE 0.75-1.25 INCH
RANGE, PERHAPS LOWEST AROUND WED.
