Pleasant and mostly dry conditions with breezy trade winds will prevail through the week as an area of high pressure remains positioned north of the state.
Trade winds may briefly weaken through the mid-week period as we track a passing cold front well north of the state.
Passing showers within the trade winds will be brief and will mostly focus over windward and mauka areas each day.
Trade winds may trend down by the end of the upcoming weekend as a front develops northwest of the state and lifts northeastward.
Let's talk surf.
Surf along north- and west-facing shores will continue lowering through the early portion of the week as the current northwest swell eases. A series of moderate northwest swells will move through the area during the coming week, but surf is expected to remain below advisory levels. Surf along east-facing shores will remain rough due to locally fresh to strong onshore winds persisting through Monday. Surf should then trend down with smaller bumps.
