Hawaii Weather Overview


EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT:    
The trade winds will be on the stronger and gusty side of the wind spectrum today. As we push into Thursday, we’ll begin to see a slightly lighter wind flow arriving over the islands…which will continue through the rest of this week. The winds aren’t going to be stopping completely by any means, although will mellow out a touch. We’ll likely find light to moderately strong trade winds continuing into the first day or two of next week.

The latest computer models are showing a cold front digging southward towards the tropics around the middle of next week. This in turn would turn our long lasting trade winds off, or slow them way down for several days. Some of the models are now showing a low pressure system forming to the northwest of the state. If, and this is still quite a large if, this were to happen, we could see southwest kona winds kick in, which could carry showers our way for several days…stay tuned for more about these two possibilities.

Meanwhile, the surf’s up along our south and west facing beaches. The NWS high surf advisory remains active on the southern leeward beaches, although will likely be dropped by Thursday. The north shores have some surf, as do the east facing beaches...although they're quite a bit smaller. The south shore surf will be diminishing through the rest of the week, as usually happens this time of year. The north and west shores will become more and more active as we head deeper into our autumn season.

Hawaii Weather Overview


EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT:   
The trade winds will hold steady in the rather strong and gusty realms through mid-week or Thursday. This is keeping our small craft wind advisory active over those windiest coastal and channel waters in Maui County and the Big Island. As the high pressure area now to our north, moves eastward through the week…our local trade winds will taper off  gradually into the weekend.

Meanwhile, our island skies will remain cloudier than usual, with a combination of high cirrus clouds above, and lower level clouds being carried our way on the breezy trades.  As the trade winds peak in strength over the next few days, they will continue to carry somewhat more showery clouds our way, generally arriving along the windward coasts and slopes. The leeward sides may eventually see a few showers being carried over that way on the locally strong and gusty trade winds.

The weather related feature during this first half of the week, which will have the greatest impact…will be the larger than normal south swell along our leeward beaches. We have an active high surf advisory along those beaches…likely lasting through Wednesday. Large surf in respect to these south and west facing beaches, will necessitate caution for our local visitors and others too.  At the same time, we'll find wind swell waves kicked up by the trade winds on our east shores, and some waves from the north through northwest breaking along our north shores too.

Hawaii Weather Overview


EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT: 
The trade winds are on the rise in terms of strength, which will hold steady in the rather strong gusty realms through Thursday or so. This has sparked a small craft wind advisory over those windiest coastal and channel waters in Maui County and the Big Island. As the high pressure area now to our north, moves eastward through the week...our local trade winds will calm down some Friday into the weekend.

Meanwhile, our island skies will range between clear to mostly cloudy at times, although rainfall will be at a minimal for the time being. At the moment, we find lots of high cirrus clouds being carried our way aloft, from the southwest. As the trade winds peak in strength over the next few days, they will begin to carry somewhat more showery clouds our way, generally arriving along the windward coasts and slopes. The leeward sides may eventually see a few showers being carried over that way on the locally strong and gusty trade winds.

The weather related feature during this first half of the week, which will have the greatest impact...will be the rising south swell along our leeward beaches. There will be high surf advisory flags going up along those beaches beginning this afternoon...and likely lasting through Wednesday. Large to very large surf in respect to these south and west facing beaches, will necessitate caution for our local visitors and others too. This early autumn south swell will start to ease up Thursday onwards.

"I knew of 'InAWARE' and I am impressed by its capabilities. Information sharing in the humanitarian context is still a big challenge (especially in ASEAN), and the efforts you are putting to close this gap are highly appreciated, and indeed highly useful for the whole humanitarian community."

"From a disaster management perspective, these agencies [PDC, HOT, PetaBencana.id] have combined their skills, have worked well together, and have created something that is really innovative, useful, and can actually improve both the disaster response by the government and citizen's participation in it as well."

PDC's advanced modeling capabilities and mapped products helped accurately anticipate the nature and extent of impacts from Dorian so that we could protect the most at-risk communities and coordinate life-saving humanitarian relief. These products were used daily in planning and public outreach, and in briefing national officials, including the Prime Minister, to prepare effectively. In addition, PDC team members gathered, analyzed, and disseminated critical information that helped organize crucial emergency support functions with the responsibility for evacuation
and relief, public health and human services, search and rescue, and the restoration of critical public infrastructure.

I was specifically asked to pass on to you how everyone was impressed and grateful for the JADE for the Afghanistan scenario. It was exactly what they needed to begin discussions on contingency planning and all that. It of course paves the way for when we need to do one there for real.

We appreciate the update and the fantastic map information products for the Garlock Scenario and are putting them to use on contingency planning. These are the types of info that can be shown in large format around the SOC helping with situational awareness.
