HAWAII EXTENDED FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS WEATHER PREDICTION CENTER COLLEGE PARK MD
741 AM EDT WED APR 09 2014

VALID 00Z THU APR 10 2014 - 00Z THU APR 17 2014

THE 9/00Z GFS-ECMWF SOLUTIONS WERE IN VERY GOOD AGREEMENT ACROSS
THE SUBTROPICAL PACIFIC THROUGH DAY 5 (MONDAY). BOTH DETERMINISTIC
PIECES OF GUIDANCE AND THEIR CORRESPONDING ENSEMBLE PACKAGES
MIGRATE A SUBSTANTIAL SURFACE HIGH AND RIDGE ALONG 36N LATITUDE.
THIS FEATURE WILL RE-STRENGTHEN THE TRADE WINDS AND PROVIDE A
STABLE...GENERALLY RAIN-FREE ENVIRONMENT FOR THE LOWER ELEVATIONS.

DON'T SEE MUCH CHANGE IN THIS PATTERN UNTIL THE MIDDLE OF NEXT
WEEK--WITH THOSE DETAILS TIED TO A 'YET-TO-DEVELOP' DEEP CYCLONE
IN THE CENTRAL ALEUTIANS. OVERALL...THE GFS-ECMWF SOLUTIONS FROM
9/00Z MAINTAINED VERY GOOD CONTINUITY THROUGH THE WEEKEND WITH THE
ONSET OF FRESH TRADES. AND BETTER YET...USING A BLEND OF THESE
SOLUTIONS COULD ADD VALUE AND DETAIL TO THE MEDIUM RANGE--HAWAI'I
WIND SPEED FORECAST THROUGH DAY 7.
