Do you need some relief from the vog? It will be coming our way on Tuesday. But for your Aloha Monday, the haze will linger due to light south winds and a humid airmass that will make it feel a little bit more uncomfortable.

A front will approach Kauai early Tuesday and then sweep down the island chain Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday, bringing some welcome showers.

Winds will veer to the west and then rapidly increase as the front passes. In fact, strong north/northeast winds will build in behind the front. Then the trade winds will remain throughout the week. This will likely deliver clouds and brief showers to windward areas. With a front approaching the islands on Tuesday, clouds may get in the way of clearly seeing a partial solar eclipse.

Marine outlook: a small to moderate south swell will arrive late today, peak Tuesday, then gradually lower through mid-week. Rough surf is likely along north facing shores Tuesday through the mid-week period, then along east facing shores Wednesday through Friday, due to strong north and northeast winds following a cold front.
