Breezy conditions with windward and mauka showers start your weekend
Winds will be lighter Sunday into next week with drier skies.
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Breezy trade wind weather to start your weekend, the breezy conditions will stick with us thru Saturday then start to ease on Sunday. A band of showers are making its way from Ni’ihau to Hawaii Island today and tomorrow with drier conditions Saturday night thru Monday; its a combinations of trade wind weather (windward and mauka showers drifting leeward at times) in combination with a sea breeze pattern (with interior and leeward showers) in the afternoon and early evening hours. Regular trade winds are due to return by the middle of next week.
The current north swell combined with the strong trade winds will continue to produce modest, disorganized surf along most north facing shores. Expect a combination of small, short-period north and northwest swells to maintain small surf along most north and west facing shores this weekend. A larger, longer-period northwest swell may arrive on Tuesday, and potentially cause surf heights to approach the High Surf Advisory levels for the north and west facing shores lines. The strong trades will keep slightly elevated, rough surf along east facing shores today. The current small south swell will persist today, and then will gradually lower this weekend. Watch for box jellyfish on the south facing shorelines.
