HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - High pressure north of the state will maintain moderate to breezy trade winds through the week.

Showers will favor windward areas, occasionally spilling to leeward sides of the smaller islands, and will be most prevalent at night. A stable atmosphere will keep rainfall amounts light.

No significant swells are expected for the foreseeable future.

A small increase in surf is possible along south facing shores from Friday into the weekend due to various southerly swells.

The current southeast swell may be reinforced early next week, which might produce a slight boost in surf heights along exposed south facing shores, such as the Big Island.

Another small reinforcing south swell is possible around the middle of next week.

The current moderate, rough surf along east-facing shores will gradually subside this weekend as the upwind trade wind fetch decreases.
