Forecast: Breezy trade winds along with drier conditions moving in

First Alert Web Forecast for Friday

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Moderate to breezy trade winds will dominate the weather for the next several days, along with typical showers for windward and mauka areas during the night and morning hours. A dry and stable airmass will limit showers to windward slopes, although there may be random pockets of low-level moisture riding in on the trades from time to time. No organized rainmakers are expected.

A small northwest swell is expected to peak Friday before diminishing Saturday with waves staying below advisory heights. Looking further ahead, there’s a west swell that we’re tracking to arrive Monday, with a small south swell also expected through mid week. East shore surf will rise a bit due to the strengthening trade winds. For mariners, a small craft advisory is posted for the usual windier waters around Maui County and the Big Island through the weekend.
