HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Light to moderate trade winds will return to Maui and the Big Island on Wednesday. However, a trough will linger near Kauai and Oahu for the next couple of days, keeping a muggy air mass in place. Light winds will allow a few bouts of heavy showers to develop, especially in the afternoon and evening. By the weekend, light to moderate trade winds are expected statewide, with just a few showers expected.
Surf along east facing shores will continue steadily decline Wednesday with only background energy remaining by Thursday. Surf along south facing shores will rise starting Thursday as the first of series of south-southwest swells arrive. Surf is expected to remain near average or slightly above average along south facing shores through the first half of next week as additional reinforcements arrive.
