Mostly clear and dry conditions will predominate the weather pattern for the first week of spring. There may be a few more clouds and perhaps an isolated shower or two at night for windward areas, but no organized rainmakers are expected all week. Trades will be locally breezy Monday and Tuesday before backing down a little into the weekend.
The Vernal Equinox heralding the arrival of spring occurs at 12:29 a.m. Monday.
A High Surf Advisory is posted for the west-facing shores of the Big Island through 6 p.m. Monday as a west-northwest swell slowly declines. A reinforcing swell is expected Tuesday night and Wednesday but should remain below advisory levels. A Small Craft Advisory is also posted for the Pailolo and Alenuihaha Channels, Maalaea Bay and waters leeward and southeast of the Big Island.
