HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The lovely tradewind conditions will hold through Tuesday with scattered windward showers, lots of leeward sunshine along with comfortable humidity levels and good air quality. By mid-week an approaching front will push away the tradewinds ushering in an extended run of light variable winds.
Look for increasing humidity levels along with a buildup of vog and haze. Skies will be clear in the morning, giving way to afternoon cloud buildups which might spawn spotty downpours, clearing in the evening. The light winds are expected to linger through the weekend.
Small pulses will come our way throughout the week for surf. Surf will remain below advisory levels on all shores through the forecast period. Small, low energy background surf is affecting north, west and south shores. A small southwest swell is possible this week.
So to sum up your week... moderate to at times locally breezy trade winds will dominate the weather across the state through the start of the week. Low clouds and showers carried by the trades will remain focused over windward and mauka areas, with brief showers occasionally passing over leeward sections of some islands. The second half of the week, expect slower winds and more humid weather.
SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY posted for the waters around Maui and the Big Island.
