Trades Here Today, Start To Leave Tomorrow

Possible heavy showers starting late Wednesday, new swell arrives

HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Enjoy the trade winds and less humid conditions for one day. Sunshine with scattered showers or isolated showers are the forecast for the Hawaiian islands. However, the moisture is forecast to push back over the Garden Isle and maybe Oahu on Wednesday, bringing more possible downpours and muggy weather, especially for the western end of the state. Trade winds will gradually rebuild Friday and Saturday, but may remain weak enough to allow for afternoon sea breezes and pop-up showers. The trades should really make a comeback Sunday and Monday.

A small craft advisory remains posted for the usual windier waters around Maui and the Big Island till 6pm and will likely be allowed to expire as the trade winds start to decrease on the eastern end of the state.

As for waves, a series of swells will keep surf a bit elevated for south-facing shores late Tuesday or Wednesday through the end of the week; a High Surf Advisory may be posted.
