Mostly dry weather, with light winds and more big surf

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.
