HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Surface high pressure north of the islands will maintain a trade wind weather pattern through next weekend.

Low clouds and brief trade showers will favor windward and mauka areas of the state, while most leeward sections will be generally clear and dry.

A stronger surface high is forecast to build north of the state this weekend. This is expected to cause the trade winds to become locally breezy starting Saturday or Sunday.

The current south swell will continue to slowly fade through the remainder of the work week, with a small reinforcement out of the southwest expected Thursday.

A series of small south-southwest and south swells are expected over the weekend into early next week, that could bring another bump to south shore surf.

Small surf will continue along east and north facing shores through the work week.
