SYNOPSIS

DEC 12 2018 06:14:00 UTC

Synopsis for Hawaiian coastal waters:
High pressure north of the state will keep strong trade winds blowing through the remainder of the work week. The high will weaken and settle southward and closer to the islands over the weekend, resulting in a gradual easing of the trade winds across the marine area.
