We should have drier conditions for the rest of the weekend, with a few showers for the usual windward and mauka areas. However, high clouds will linger over Maui County and the Big Island through Monday. Trade winds will be locally breezy before picking up speed Monday and Tuesday to 15-25 mph with locally higher gusts. Typical, if somewhat breezy, trade wind weather will dominate most of the coming week with the next possible rainmaker coming next weekend in the form of a cold front.
Surf for north and west shores will rise late in the day Sunday, with north shores topping out at 8-12 feet before sundown. The strong trade winds will keep rough surf in the forecast for east-facing shores, and waves could reach advisory levels as the winds strengthen. For mariners, there's a Small Craft Advisory for waters from Oahu through the Big Island due to strong east winds.
