A few more days of wet trade wind weather

We’re looking at increased showers, mainly for windward and mauka areas, for a few more days as a weak upper disturbance lingers near the Big Island and enhances the moisture riding in on the trade winds. More stable conditions should move in by late Friday, so we’re expecting a rather dry Easter weekend. A high pressure ridge is building north of the islands and will keep moderate to breezy east-northeast winds blowing for the next several days.

Small surf is expected for most shores, with a rising east swell due to the increasing trade winds. A small northwest swell is expected to arrive late Thursday into Friday but will remain below advisory levels. A small craft advisory is taking effect for the usual windier waters around Maui County and the Big Island due to the strengthening winds.
