HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Light winds will continue through the first half of the week as a front stalls and diminishes near Kauai. Outside of a few clouds and showers setting up over interior areas each afternoon due to sea breezes, mostly dry and stable conditions are anticipated. Increasing moisture associated with another front that is forecast to move into the area will bring increasing rainfall chances and the potential for gusty northeast winds by the end of the week.
A new northwest swell now spreading into the area is forecast to product surf above the advisory threshold along north and west facing shores. As this swell subsides on Wednesday, a new very large northwest swell is expected. Surf from that swell will produce surf well above warning levels along north and west facing shores of the smaller islands. The swell is expected to gradually subside through Friday night
