HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The worst of former Tropical Storm Howard may have missed us to the north over the weekend, but the humidity alone was plenty to deal with. It will continue today. Stay in the A/C if you can. Drink plenty of fluids.
Improving conditions are expected by tomorrow. Something resembling trade winds will develop this afternoon, let's call them easterlies at 10-15 mph with some stronger gusts. The trades will be much more evident tomorrow with east-northeast winds at 15-20 mph.
Only a few passing showers are in the forecast for today and tomorrow.
High today in Honolulu will be a sticky 89 degrees.
Surf is slightly elevated along east and south shores. Energy from former hurricane Ivette will kick up the east side into the advisory category Wednesday through Saturday. Surf today: 4-6 feet east, 2-4 feet south, 1-3 feet north and west.
No marine or weather advisories are currently posted.
