Breezy trade winds will continue into Wednesday with low clouds and showers favoring windward and mauka neighborhoods.

An increase in shower activity is expected later today into Wednesday as remnant moisture from a deteriorating front gets caught in the flow.

To the northwest of the islands, another late season front will approach and weaken our winds and veer them to southeast Thursday and Friday.

Muggy, voggy conditions will result with afternoon sea breezes and nighttime land breezes developing through the end of the work week.

Locally breezy trade winds should return to the state this weekend.

High today in Honolulu will be 84 degrees.

The current, small, short period north-northwest swell will gradually decline today. A new, small, long-period west-northwest swell arrives tonight and will linger through Friday.

Expect a reinforcing north-northwest swell this weekend. Small south swells will continue through mid-week. A long period south arrives Friday and is forecast to peak late Saturday above the seasonal average.

Strong trade winds will continue to produce slightly elevated choppy surf along east-facing shores through mid-week.

Small Craft Advisory is posted for Maalaea Bay, the waters south of the Big Island and the Kaiwi, Pailolo, and Alenuihaha channels.
