HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Some relief on the way after an extremely humid Monday.

Easterly trade winds are forecast to return by afternoon and help you cope with high temperatures that could reach or even exceed 90 degrees. The winds will be 15-20 mph with some stronger gusts after lunch, even stronger winds are in the forecast for Wednesday through Friday.

Surf is small all around. A series of small south pulses are expected this week. Perhaps a bit larger bump this weekend. As the trades build over the next 24 hours, so will the surf along east shores. Hurricane Georgette has sent us some surf and it will likely arrive later this week. Waves today will be 2-4 feet east and south. 1-3 feet north and west.

Small Craft Advisory for Pailolo and Alenuihaha channels, Maalaea Bay, and coastal waters windward and southeast of the Big Island.
