A showery start to the new work week.
Most, but not all of the showers are falling on windward and mauka neighborhoods. We should dry out by mid-day, perhaps mid morning, and then see a sunny afternoon with highs in the upper 80s.
Honolulu is forecast to see a max temperature of 89 degrees.
Surf is elevated along east shores due to the breezy trades. South shores will build tomorrow with a long-period swell. Then a larger south is expected Thursday/Friday.
Waves today will be 3-5 feet east, 1-3 feet south and west, 2 feet or less north.
