Light winds, with a few more showers for parts of the state

A diminishing front and and upper level disturbance are moving into our area, with the front putting the brakes on the trade winds. A few more showers are possible for Kauai from the decaying front, while the Big Island could see some heavier shower activity late in the day thanks to instability from the upper trough.

Trade winds will make a brief return Sunday into Monday and then diminish again and become southerly as another cold front approaches. There’s still uncertainty over the forecast, but there’s a chance the front could reach Kauai late Wednesday and then stall near Maui. We’ll keep an eye on it for you.

At the beach, there’s another northwest swell on the way, with a high surf advisory taking effect for north and west shores of Kauai, Oahu and Molokai and the north shores of Maui. This will be the first in a rather long series of northwest swells through the next week. East and south shore surf will remain small, although we could get a small south-southwest swell around the middle of next week. A small craft advisory is posted for coastal waters exposed to the swell.
