Forecast: Improving conditions for election weekend

Image: Hawaii News Now Image: Hawaii News Now

Should be a great weekend for voting and outdoor activities as tropical moisture associated with Hurricane Hector departs to the west and and a drier, less humid airmass moves in. Trade winds will be on the breezy side, and we're only expecting some light nighttime and morning showers for windward and mauka areas. In short, the typical weather pattern for this time of year. No major changes are expected for the next several days.

At the beach, a swell from a storm far off in the Southern Hemisphere will push surf just below advisory levels for south shores. East shores will remain a bit on the high side from a combination of the trade winds and a small long-period east swell. A Small Craft Advisory will remain posted for the usual windier waters around Maui County and the Big Island.
