KWAJALEIN FORECAST DISCUSSION

Bursts of showers along a broad trough within the trade winds will continue to bring pulses of rain and wind gusts into the low 30s over Kwajalein Atoll this morning.  While winds are forecast to decrease slightly overnight as the trough moves away, the environment is shifting to favor sustained trade winds approaching Small Craft Advisory levels.  The subtropical ridge will build north of the Marshall Islands today and tonight, and sustained winds are expected to near 20 knots by Wednesday.  Showers are still expected at isolated coverage levels; the trade wind surge will stall north of Kwajalein, and showers will form along the wind convergence boundary near the atoll.  Further out in the forecast, a rapidly-developing Kona low will produce strong winds northwest of Hawai’i.  These wins are expected to generate high swells for the north-facing shores and reefs of Kwajalein Atoll on Wednesday and Thursday.  Shower coverage will be 20% becoming 10% today and 10% tonight.  Combined seas on the open ocean will be 4-6 ft.  AJP
