Forecast: Get ready for wetter weather this week

Winds are light and variable this morning. There are scattered showers across the island state. We will likely see sea breezes develop this afternoon with some pop-up showers possible for interior and leeward neighborhoods.

High in Honolulu will be about 85 degrees.

Winds turn more southerly starting Tuesday and increase the humidity, vog, and showers. Trade winds should start their return Friday and be breezy by the weekend.

Surf is way down from the spectacular heights over the weekend. Waves today will be 4-7 feet north, 3-5 feet west, 2-4 feet east, 1-2 feet south.

A new, moderate northwest swell is expected Tuesday night and will peak Wednesday below advisory levels. An even smaller country swell as we head into the weekend. South side surf will get a small bump Thursday through Friday.

No marine or weather advisories are posted.

No tropical cyclone activity is expected in the next 48 hours for the Central Pacific. There is one area far to our east, just off the Costa Rica coast that may develop. The National Hurricane Center in Miami gives 10% / 20% for its 2-day / 5-day possibility of becoming an organized storm.
