Forecast: A bit damp and breezy into Monday

A weakening cold front with clouds and showers will push through the state into Monday. The cloud band associated with the front will reach Maui and the Big Island by daybreak. Weather for most of the state will be on the wet side Monday morning, but Kauai and Oahu may have some partial clearing by afternoon.

High pressure to the north is pushing the frontal band along, but it's also keeping breezy trade winds blowing over the state. Winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour are expected Monday.

By Monday night and Tuesday, the cloud and shower band will move south of the islands and we should start settling into a drier trade wind pattern, with nighttime and morning showers for windward and mauka areas pretty much for the remainder of the week.

Surf will be on the smallish side for Monday, but a new northwest swell is expected to arrive Tuesday and boost wave heights near advisory levels by Wednesday. For now, a Small Craft Advisory is posted until 6 p.m. Monday for nearly all Hawaiian coastal waters.
