Forecast: Drier conditions expected to return by Monday

Drier weather to return for the rest of the week

HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - More trade wind showers are expected Sunday, but drier conditions should once again prevail by Monday into the coming week. Moderate to locally breezy trade winds will weaken slightly Monday and Tuesday but will pick up speed again for the second half of the week.

Winds will be strong enough to keep a small craft advisory posted all weekend for the usual windier coastal waters around Maui County and the Big Island.

In surf, a long-period southwest swell will keep waves just below advisory levels for south-facing shores, with the swell declining a little Sunday night and Monday. The current northwest swell is boosting wave heights a bit for the north and west shores, with a longer period north swell expected midweek.
