HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Moderate to locally breezy trade winds will continue through the work week, bringing periods of clouds and showers to windward areas, while leeward areas remain mostly dry. The trades will begin to ease a bit on Friday, with a further decrease next weekend allowing for the development of sea and land breezes. This will favor showers developing over interior and mountain areas during the day, and in windward areas near the coast at night. This weekend there is the potential that some of the shower activity could be locally heavy and a thunderstorm can't be ruled out at this time.
Surf along all shores is expected to remain below advisory levels for this week. A small west-northwest swell will provide small surf along north and west facing shores for the first half of the week. A series of small south swells will provide small surf starting Monday and will likely continue through most of the week and into the weekend. Surf along east facing shores will hold steady in the small to moderate range through Thursday due to the breezy to locally strong trades.
