Forecast: Breezy trades, a few showers to start the work week

Some low clouds will ride in on breezy trade winds for the first part of our work week, bringing a few showers for windward and mauka areas. Those showers are expected to increase a bit Tuesday night and Wednesday as moisture from a decaying frontal boundary reaches the state.

Computer forecast models are pointing to an out-of-season cold front later this week. Winds will weaken Thursday before the front reaches Kauai and Oahu Friday, with associated moisture remaining for much of the weekend. Southeasterly wind flow may also make for a hazy weekend, but it's too early to tell exactly what will happen.

Surf will remain slightly elevated for north and west shores, with a longer-period west-northwest swell Wednesday. There's also a nice bump for south shores, along with a choppy trade swell out east. A Small Craft Advisory remains up for the usual windier waters around Maui County and the Big Island.
