Forecast: Stronger winds expected to bring better air quality
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - High pressure building north of the islands will bring increasingly strong trade winds beginning Wednesday, with fewer windward showers. The UH VMAP model suggests that the easterly winds will clear out the light vog by this morning, possibly later on Kauai. A building inversion between 7000 to 8000 ft should keep future emissions from Mauna Loa largely trapped aloft and carried to the W of the Big Island. Little overall change is expected into the weekend.
The current northwest swell is forecast to begin lowering from Wednesday morning through early Thursday. Another small, medium period northwest swell is will be arriving Thursday and Friday. Rough east surf will stick around into the weekend and may near HSA levels Thursday night and Friday.
