Trades Today, Gone Tomorrow.
Approaching front stalls northwest of the islands, cutting off trade winds.
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Dry and Stable conditions prevail thru the state today thru the weekend. Trade winds mean windward and mauka showers drifting leeward at times with partly/mostly sunny skies. A front will approach the islands and stall just northwest of the state, which will mean lighter winds.
Depending on the direction of the winds, vog or particulate from Kilauea Volcano may affect the leeward sides of the islands from Hawaii to O’ahu. As we get into the weekend, moderate trades will return as stronger high pressure builds up to the north. Light and variable winds will return as another front moves near the islands; this front may mean more moisture for the state.
A reinforcing swell peaks tonight and heads on the way down, but another swell will push surf heights back up to near advisory levels for the north and west shores starting Friday night thru Saturday; it will weaken in the early part of next week. Very small surf for the east shores, a small bump Friday for the town spots.
