Mostly dry trade wind weather, but more showers possible mid-week

Locally breezy trade winds will bring in just a few light passing light showers over windward and mauka areas through Tuesday. There’s a chance for lighter winds and perhaps some heavier showers Wednesday and Thursday as a cold front drops in from the north while an upper level disturbance passes overhead. Drier trade wind weather should return by Saturday.

At the beach, a small westerly swell from former Typhoon Hagibis may bring a gradual rise to west shore surf Monday into Tuesday before tapering off Wednesday. North shores may also see surf trending up for the second half of the week as Hagibis’ circulation curves northward. South shores will see only small pulses for most of the week, while east shores will remain choppy with the stronger trades. A small craft advisory also remains posted for the usual windier waters of Maui County and the Big Island through Monday afternoon.
