Forecast: Lighter winds on the way with more large surf

HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Dry and pleasant conditions in place are expected to continue this week. Breezy trade winds will hold through Monday, then shift out of the southeast and diminish Tuesday through Friday. A mostly dry land and sea breeze pattern will result, with the best chance for a few clouds and showers setting up over interior areas through the afternoon periods. A front will stall and weaken near Kauai Friday with trades briefly returning Saturday.

A new long-period NNW swell is expected to peak at advisory levels, thus a High Surf Advisory has been issued for exposed N and W shores. This swell will diminish late Monday and Tuesday, but will be followed on Wednesday by a significantly larger NW swell that will likely peak near High Surf Warning heights, with an even larger swell potentially arriving next Saturday.
