Lighter trade winds starting the week as south swell holds

A trough passing to the north of the islands will keep our trade winds on the lighter side Monday, and allow for afternoon sea breezes that could cause some clouds and pop-up showers for leeward areas. Trade winds should rebuild for by Tuesday night, with the usual nighttime and early-morning showers for windward and mauka areas for the remainder of the week into the Independence Day holiday weekend.

A high surf advisory is still up for all south-facing shores through 6 p.m. Monday, with some west and east facing shores exposed to the south swell getting some elevated waves. The swell should decline by Tuesday, with a smaller south swell arriving Wednesday.
