Apparently, the flow is locked in jail across Hawai'i's expanse of
the Pacific Ocean. The global numerical guidance continues to
indicate that the state will be positioned between the
intertropical convergence zone and the polar westerlies for at
least the next week, with only patchy deep-layer moisture
affecting the islands. Due to the presence of a number of eddies
in the flow both to the north and south, the trades will average
lighter than normal. Rainfall also looks on the modest side this
period, with many locations receiving less than a tenth of an
inch--if that--for the entire week. Most of the rainfall is
progged to be on the western side of the Big Island.
