Persistent trade winds will bring passing clouds and showers through Thursday to windward and mauka areas, mainly during the nights and mornings. Winds will be a little lighter Monday and Tuesday, with stronger trades midweek. Winds will weaken Friday as a front pushes southward toward the state. There could be a modest increase in showers from the front Friday and Saturday, but no heavy rainfall is expected.
In surf, a northwest swell is expected to rise overnight into Monday, but it’s uncertain whether it will reach advisory levels. A larger swell is forecast to build Tuesday night, with another large swell Wednesday night and Thursday that may produce warning-level surf for north and west shores. Surf along east shores will decline a bit as the trade winds weaken, while south shore surf will remain small through the week. A small craft advisory will remain up overnight for the usual windier waters around Maui County and the Big Island.
