Forecast: Trades remaining gentle with afternoon sea breezes and clouds

A weak surface ridge just north of the islands will keep light trade winds blowing, with afternoon sea breezes leading to some cloud buildups and perhaps some pop-up showers, followed by nighttime clearing. There may also be some windward showers during the early morning hours.

Winds will become a bit lighter Wednesday and shift a little south of east, which could result in another brief round of volcanic haze spreading to the smaller islands into Thursday morning. Trade winds should strengthen Thursday afternoon, becoming breezy Friday into the weekend.

Surf has quieted down with no major swells this week. There could still be a stray head-high set for north-facing shores, with all other shores coming in at 2-4 feet.
