It’s not often we get this far away from home, but indeed, we are headed for the Islands for our forecast today. How different is life in Honolulu in the middle of the summer?
At 453 AM, Hawaiian time, Honolulu was reporting mostly cloudy skies with a temperature of 75 degrees. The western islands were generally reporting overcast skies as a overnight band of showers shifted into the open Pacific, while areas exposed to the trades were generally a few degrees warmer. Northern exposures of all of the Hawaiian islands were under high surf advisories, as the remnants of Ferrnanda drifted east and north of the chain.
Fernanda will skirt the northern end of the islands through the early morning hours on Monday, elevating the surf on the north sides of the islands, while also bringing clouds and a chance of showers. The rain and thunder in the interior mountains of Oahu will continue through the early afternoon, with the sun returning without interference by evening. Tropical features are lining up in the eastern Pacific, but high pressure will stamp out any advance on the islands, while the storms will sap any moisture from the trades. Tuesday will be another great day in Hawai’i

It blows my mind that we are so all over on this forecast! Very interesting, and it will be important to see how those mountains on the interior of Oahu affect everything on the southern shores. Here is the satellite, showing a wave shifting out of the picture.
