Breezy to locally gusty trade winds are expected through the holiday weekend. We’re also looking at mostly dry and stable conditions and mostly clear skies, with just a few very light sprinkles for windward areas. The exception will be the windward slopes of Maui and the Big Island, where moisture from a dissipating front east of the state are being blown back by the trades.
For mariners, a small craft advisory remains posted through Sunday afternoon for all Hawaiian coastal waters due to elevated winds and seas. Surf will be quiet Saturday, but a a long-period north-northwest swell may bring advisory-level waves Sunday afternoon into Monday. A larger, warning-level swell is possible late Tuesday night and Wednesday. Surf will remain choppy for east shores from the trade wind swell.
