Forecast: Increasing showers, high surf from Celia

Forecast: Increasing showers, high surf from Celia

Trade winds will disappear by Monday as remnants of what was hurricane Celia pass north of the islands, making for several more days of hot and humid weather. Winds will become light north-northeast Sunday, light and variable Monday, and then southeast Tuesday, as the system passes. The system will also draw up enhanced tropical moisture, so there's a chance of locally heavy showers by Monday afternoon.

Trade wind weather is expected to return briefly on Wednesday, and winds could become locally breezy Thursday and Friday as the now-distant hurricane Darby approaches the state. It's still too soon to tell exactly what effects this system will have on our weather, but we're watching it closely.

High Surf Advisory is in effect for east-facing shores until 6 p.m. Monday for a northeast swell generated by Celia. Meanwhile, surf on south and west shores will be lower as another swell declines.
