Forecast: Drier conditions, breezy trades moving in
A drier and more stable airmass should be moving over the state from the east as an upper level disturbance that brought torrential damaging rain and thunderstorms finally departs. A relatively stable trade wind shower pattern will settle in by Sunday. Locally breezy tradewinds of 15 to 25 miles per hour are expected Sunday and Monday.
Longer term, trade winds should remain over the state for the foreseeable future. Showers will be focused mainly over windward and mauka areas during the night and morning hours.
For mariners, a Small Craft Advisory is in effect until 6 p.m. Monday for waters surrounding Maui County and the Big Island. For surfers, waves are dropping on north and west shores, but some overhead sets are still possible north, and around 2-5 footers are expected west.
