HAWAII EXTENDED FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS WEATHER PREDICTION CENTER COLLEGE PARK MD
824 AM EDT WED SEP 02 2015

VALID 00Z THU SEP 03 2015 - 00Z THU SEP 10 2015

TROPICAL STORM IGNACIO WAS LOCATED NEAR 25.2N 156.2W AT 09 UTC AND
WAS PACKING SUSTAINED WINDS OF 60 KNOTS WITH GUSTS TO 75 KNOTS.
IGNACIO IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE ON A TRACK WELL NORTH OF THE
ISLANDS OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS, BUT PLEASE CONSULT THE CENTRAL
PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER (CPHC) FOR THE MOST RECENT WEATHER
INFORMATION. MEANWHILE, HURRICANE JIMENA WAS LOCATED NEAR 17.7N
142.2W AT 09 UTC AND WAS PACKING SUSTAINED WINDS OF 100 KNOTS WITH
GUSTS TO 120 KNOTS. JIMENA IS FORECAST TO TRACK TO THE NE OF THE
ISLANDS BY BY LATE THIS WEEK AND BEYOND, BUT PLEASE CONSULT THE
CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER (CPHC) FOR UPDATED WEATHER
INFORMATION.

IN THIS SCENARIO, A FAVORED COMPOSITE OF MODELS AND ENSEMBLES
WOULD SUGGEST A POTENTIALLY WET PATTERN OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF
DAYS UNDERNEATH IGNACIO FOR THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS WITH THE CHANCE
FOR MOISTURE POOLED LOCALLY HEAVIER DOWNPOURS UNDER A
TROUGH/WEAKNESS ALOFT. HEIGHT RISES OVER THE STATE GRADUALLY
REDUCES INSTABILITY AND RAINFALL POTENTIAL FRIDAY ONWARD INTO THE
WEEKEND AND ESPECIALLY INTO EARLY/MID NEXT WEEK IN DRIER FLOW.
