HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A cold front will move through the island chain from west to east Tuesday, then stall out near the Big Island early Wednesday. Showers will increase along and ahead of the front, with some locally heavy rainfall possible today.

The high Tuesday in Honolulu will be 83 degrees. Breezy north winds will build in behind the front Tuesday afternoon and continue through Thursday while shifting to a more typical northeast trade wind direction.

Small Craft Advisory has been issued for all waters with the exception of the leeward Big Island and south Big Island waters for the winds expected with the passing cold front.

Surf is expected to remain below advisory levels through the remainder of the week. There may be some rough conditions along the exposed north and east facing shores because of the winds associated with the cold front. A moderate northwest swell is anticipated over the weekend.
