Weather will continue to be mostly dry and pleasant for several more days, with light winds allowing for daytime sea breezes that could develop some afternoon clouds and pop-up showers. The background southeast flow could also cause plumes of moisture to form and move down the island chain.
Some changes will finally occur Wednesday as a cold front turns our winds to the south, with Kona winds and scattered showers late Thursday and Friday. We’ll have a brief blast of breezy and cool north winds as the front passes.
Surf is still massive for most north and west shores, with a high surf warning up for Niihau, Kauai, Oahu and Molokai and the north shores of Maui. There’s also a high surf advisory for the west shores of the Big Island. Surf will decline below warning levels but will still be high enough for a high surf advisory through Tuesday as smaller reinforcing northwest swells arrive. Another big north-northwest swell is forecast to arrive late Thursday into Friday.
