South swell on the rise and light trade winds for the week.

Dawn patrol surfers were in the lineup this morning on the south shore of O’ahu

HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Light to moderate trade winds continue through the week, with clouds and showers favoring windward and mountain areas each day. The best chance for showers will be through the overnight and early morning hours as some limited moisture moves through. A few leeward and interior showers may occur through the afternoon hours each day where localized sea breezes develop. Remnant moisture associated with Tropical Storm Marie may bring a slight increase in rainfall by Sunday going into Monday.

Surfers were happy this morning with light winds and a swell that maybe was head-high at times. We will enjoy this “just below advisory level” surf thru tomorrow, then starting to decrease on Thursday. Surf along north facing shores will remain small with a little bump expected towards midweek. East facing shores should begin to see swells from Tropical Cyclone Marie starting today with moderate surf holding for a few days.
