Drier trade wind conditions are expected over most of the state, although there could be more showers for windward areas of Kauai. Skies should be mostly clear leeward and partly cloudy windward through Wednesday with easterly winds at 10 to 15 miles per hour.
An approaching cold front will result in decreasing winds and increasing showers by Thursday, with the chance for unsettled weather with widespread showers into the weekend. We'll keep you posted.
For mariners, a Small Craft Advisory remains in effect until 6 a.m. Tuesday for the usual windier waters around Maui County and the Big Island. In surf, a trade swell will bring in choppy waves for east facing shores. North shores could still have some head-high sets Monday, with 2-4 footers for west and south shores. There will be a couple of swells coming in this week, but none of them will reach advisory levels.
