Light trades continue with some afternoon clouds

The trade winds are blowing, but barely, which will allow for nighttime land breezes and afternoon sea breezes. There could be a few nighttime windward showers and some afternoon clouds and isolated showers for leeward and interior areas of the islands, but conditions are stable and rainfall will be on the light side. Trade winds are expected to increase by Friday and could become breezy for some spots.

At the beach, arriving swells from typhoons in the western Pacific will boost surf for west and some north-facing shores over the next few days. A series of southeast and south swells will also keep wave heights a bit higher for the first half of the week. Surf on east shores will remain small due to the lack of trade winds, but should rise as the trades strengthen later this week.
