Forecast: Week ahead to bring dry conditions, slowing winds

Weather will be drier than normal for Sunday with only isolated windward showers. Trade winds will be slowing down a bit ahead of a weakening cold front approaching from the northwest. Winds will pick up and shift to the north-northeast late Sunday into Monday, with the front bringing a slight increase in clouds and showers for the smaller islands Monday. The front should dissipate near the Big Island Tuesday.

Winds will be light and variable for the late part of the week, but conditions should remain stable, which means there could be some afternoon clouds but not much in the way of showers.

Waves on the north and west shores have fallen below advisory levels, but a new northwest swell will bring warning level surf Monday and Tuesday, with another big swell possible Thursday and Friday. A Small Craft Advisory until 6 a.m. Sunday for the usual windier waters around Maui County and the Big Island.
