HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Mostly dry and stable conditions with light and variable winds will continue into Tuesday.

The best chance for a few light showers will be driven by sea breezes through the afternoon periods.

A return of a more typical trade wind pattern is expected by Wednesday, which should continue through the weekend.

The first in a series of northwest to north swells over the next week or so has been affecting local waters.

A high surf warning is in effect for most north- and west-facing shores from Niihau to Maui. As this swell lowers later Monday, another, larger, long-period swell will begin to move through beginning Monday night into Tuesday when it will peak. Some north shore hotspots will max out at 15 to 25′.
