Weather will continue to be mostly dry and pleasant the first half of the new work week, 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. Winds will shift to southerlies again this coming weekend as another cold front nears the state.
A high surf advisory remains up until 6 a.m. Wednesday for the north and west shores of Niihau, Kauai, Oahu and Molokai and the north shores of Maui. Surf will decline a bit Monday but head back up Tuesday as as reinforcing northwest swell arrives. Another big north-northwest swell is forecast to arrive late Thursday into Friday.
