HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - HOLD ON! The trade winds will hold steady. Showers will be favoring the windward and mauka areas, especially during the nights and early morning hours. Rainfall amounts will remain light through most or all of this week and pick up this weekend on Sunday into Monday as what is left of tropical systems rides in on the trades.

The strong trade winds will result in elevated, rough surf along east facing shores through the first half of the new week. Besides some localized wrap of trade wind swell, surf along most north facing shores will remain essentially flat through mid-week.

Remnant lows of Felicia and Guillermo are both weakening in the East Pacific and moving towards Hawaii, however neither tropical cyclone is forecast to be a severe weather threat. What is left of Guillermo may bring some rain.
