Abstract

An attempt is made to construct synoptic charts that will show readily recognizable differences in “dry trades” and “wet trades” on the island of Hawaii in the Hawaiian Islands. Also, correlations are attempted relating rainfall to the height of the freezing level and to air mass instability. It is concluded that there are several synoptic features that are distinctly different in the two cases.

Abstract

Composite synoptic charts are presented which illustrate the large-scale circulation at the surface and aloft over much of the North Pacific Ocean during periods of dry weather on Oahu. Seasonal (fall, winter, and spring) composite charts and pressure-height anomalies associated with dry weather on Oahu are shown for three levels: sea level, 700 mb., and 300 mb. Further stratification is achieved by classifying the dry days, depending upon the presence or absence of trade winds in Hawaii.
