Kona winds from the south to southwest will start blowing over the islands Monday ahead of an approaching cold front. The weather should remain dry until the front brings a few light showers Monday night and Tuesday. Winds will remain light Wednesday and Thursday as a ridge of high pressure settles over the islands. Trade wind weather will start slowly returning Friday into next weekend.
Out in the ocean, the calendar may say it's spring, but a late season swell could bring warning-level surf to north and west shores starting Tuesday, peaking Tuesday night and Wednesday. There are also some small south swells expected over the coming week.
