HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Light winds and mostly dry weather will continue Tuesday, with afternoon sea breezes bringing a few clouds and some showers to inland and upriver areas.
A cold front is expected to move across the Western Isles on Wednesday, bringing a period of strong northeast winds and increased showers to Kauai and Oahu. The front will stagnate and weaken into a trough and slowly move west Thursday through Friday, with showers favoring the western end of the state.
Moderate to locally windy trade winds will return over the weekend, with mostly dry conditions on Saturday changing to wetter trade winds on Sunday through early next week.
A high surf advisory remains in effect for the north-facing shores of Niihau in Maui, including the west-facing shores of Niihau and Kauai, which may expire at 6 a.m. this morning.
Offshore buoys have dropped a few feet over the past couple of hours, which should translate to a drop in surf below today’s advisory levels.
A larger but shorter period northern swell is expected to arrive tomorrow and could bring low advised level waves to north facing coasts tomorrow evening and Thursday, before easing from Thursday evening to Saturday.
It will also likely bring SCA level seas to exposed waters. Slightly larger and longer southern swell waves are expected tomorrow through Saturday.
