Hawaii Extended Forecast Discussion
NWS Weather Prediction Center College Park MD
735 AM EDT Mon Apr 27 2015

Valid 00Z Tue Apr 28 2015 - 00Z Tue May 05 2015

The 27/00Z ECENS/GEFS and their deterministic runs were in very
good agreement with the current Hawai'i forecast through day 7.

Near-term sensible weather is associated with a cold front
migration poised to exit the eastern fringes of the forecast area
in the next 24 hours. Surface high and rather substantial
mid-level ridge---on cue---to migrate across the central Pacific
behind the front---and through Thursday will enhance the tradewind
flow pattern. 

By Friday (day 5), the surface ridge begins to migrate
northeastward and the gradient winds/trade winds should be easing
across the forecast area.
