Trade winds are expected to strengthen by Wednesday, and remain in place into next weekend, delivering brief showers to windward areas. Varying amounts of benign high clouds are expected to move over the islands from Tuesday into Friday.
Surf along north facing shores will gradually trend down Tuesday as the small, medium-period, north-northwest swell fades. An upward trend is expected Wednesday through the second half of the week. Surf along south facing shores will remain small into midweek with mainly a combo of south-southwest and south-southeast energy moving through. An upward trend is anticipated by Thursday night as a new, long-period, south-southwest swell arrives.
