The trade winds are back and growing stronger. By afternoon, winds will be east-northeast at 15-20 mph with some stronger gusts.

Wednesday will definitely have some clouds and a few showers. Leeward beaches will be your best bet for blue sky.

High in Honolulu will be 85 degrees.

South shores are getting a bump today with another swell possible starting Friday. East side surf will build with the strengthening trade winds and could be rough, choppy, and dangerous this weekend.

Today's waves: 3-5 feet south, 2-4 fee west, 3-5 feet north, 2-4 feet east.

Small Craft Advisory for the Pailolo and Alenuihaha channels, Maalaea Bay, along with coastal waters south and west of the Island of Hawaii.
