Trade Wind Weather this weekend, possible heavy showers next week
Frontal system may bring Hawaii much needed rain
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Mostly dry trade wind weather will persist today and tomorrow. Sunday is a transition weather day as the winds turn southeasterly as the frontal system approaches the state from the northwest. The front will move down portions of the island chain late Monday and stall Tuesday, bringing rainfall to mostly windward and north facing slopes, and to some leeward areas. Behind the front will be cool and breezy northerly winds 15-25mph.
Surf along north and west facing shores will remain elevated, but below advisory levels, through Saturday as a series of small northwest swells move through the coastal waters. A larger northwest swell will fill in Sunday night into Monday, generating near to above average surf Tuesday, then slowly subside into the second half of the week. As this swell moves down the island chain the direction will become more northerly. East facing shores will have small, choppy surf through tomorrow then slowly trend down into early next week. A small south swell is possible towards the middle of next week.
