We are tracking a weak front as we head into the weekend that will initially impact the western end of the state and then slide towards the east. Primarily it will bring windward and mauka showers with a few rain cells drifting towards leeward neighborhoods. Behind the front, an area of high pressure builds in and this will set up shop for gusty trade winds, strong enough for a wind advisory for the islands of Lanai and Kahoolawe, along with central Maui and north and east Hawaii island, from the Kohala area through Puna and Ka’u. Winds will remain up throughout the week. The gusty trade winds will dominate the forecast.
We are also tracking another country swell that will surpass warning levels. This NW swell is packed with a lot of energy and it will be at its peak on Sunday. The winds will make surf messy.
Have a wonderful and safe weekend!
