Forecast: Trade winds ease, but breezy conditions persist

The breezy trades have eased a bit from over the weekend but will still blow at 15-20 mph at their peak this afternoon. Showers will be intermittent and mainly windward and mauka. Leeward will see plentiful sunshine and a high of 83 degrees in Honolulu.

Wetter weather is moving in from the south and will reach the Island of Hawaii this morning, Maui County this afternoon, and the islands of Oahu and Kauai Tuesday morning.

As that wet weather moves onto the Big Island, there could be some thunderstorm activity and the summits could see 3-5 inches of snow and ice. Visibility could be zero at times today on the summits above 12,000 feet.

Surf will be big enough for advisories on 3 shorelines and slightly elevated on the 4th. Waves today are forecast to be 12-16 feet north, 8-12 feet west, 5-8 feet east, 2-4 feet south.

Winter Weather Advisory for Big Island summits.

High Surf Advisory for north, west, and east shores of most islands.

Small Craft Advisory for most Hawaii waters.
