Nice trade wind weather for one more day as high pressure remains in place to the north.

Clouds and showers will favor the typical windward locations through this time, leaving leeward areas mostly dry.

Trade winds are forecast to weaken Thursday through Friday, which will lead to light and variable winds for the upcoming weekend as a cold front approaches. Clouds and showers will then become focused over interior locations through the afternoon periods into early next week.

Surf is expected to remain below advisory levels through the week for all shores.

There will be a series of small west-northwest to north-northwest swells over the rest of this week, with a moderate-size northwest swell arriving late Sunday afternoon, peaking Sunday night, then lowering through Monday night.

A series of small swells will maintain relatively small surf along south facing shores through the period with the largest bumps today and Saturday.

Surf along east facing shores will hold steady in the small to moderate range through Thursday due to the breezy trades, then lower over the weekend as the trades lessen.
