A day much like yesterday. A few passing morning showers and then a sunny afternoon with some high clouds. Looks like those high clouds may be a bit thicker as we start our Tuesday.

High today in Honolulu will be 87 degrees.

High pressure far north of the area will maintain trade winds through the holiday weekend. A low aloft from the north will move near the area Wednesday and make the atmosphere unstable, so showers may become more active through Thursday. The atmosphere will become more stable and much drier over the weekend, resulting in a decrease in rainfall. Meanwhile, a strong high building far northeast of the area will bring strong trades through the weekend.

Surf will remain below advisory levels along all shores at least for the next few days. The current south swell will continue today. The fairly small but rough surf along east facing shores will slowly subside as the trade winds ease. Surf will rebuild along the east facing shores by the weekend and may reach advisory level for the east facing shores as the trades strengthen and becoming strong. No marine or weather advisories are in posted.
