Forecast: Wet weather possible for back to school

Our wet weather pattern will continue into Monday with the possibility of a few briefly heavy showers for the smaller islands, with more typical trade wind conditions for the Big Island. These showers should start diminishing late Tuesday into Wednesday as a surface trough responsible for the wet weather moves away. Trade winds will begin increasing late Monday and become locally breezy by midweek before backing off again next weekend.

Longer term, we could get a few more showers from the remnants of former hurricane Frank late Wednesday into Thursday. Even further ahead, the remnants of what is now the newly-formed Tropical Depression Nine-E could come between us and our trade wind-producing high pressure area to the north and sharply diminish wind speeds, but that's quite far into the future with a high level of uncertainty.

At the beach, we're looking at a series of small south swells for the coming week, along with a choppy trade wind swell for east shores, but wave heights will remain below advisory levels for the coming week.
