Hawaii Extended Forecast Discussion

Valid 00Z Tue Dec 16 2014 - 00Z Tue Dec 23 2014

Models and ensembles reasonably agree in holding the Hawaiian
Islands under a mid-upper level ridge into the weekend. A
preferred composite solution favors moderate to locally brisk
trades and windward terrain limited showers underneath mean
surface high pressure centered to the north of the state during
this period. These trades may weaken/veer/moisten Sun/Mon with
mid-upper level trough and associated frontal system development
and approach from the northwest that would weaken the ambient lead
high/ridge.
