HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Locally strong trades will deliver increased trade wind showers to windward slopes through mid-week, especially over central portions of the state. Trades and shower coverage then trend downward during the end of the week.

A remnant band of frontal showers is moving toward the islands; the latest observational trends and modeling suggest the lion’s share of this moisture will focus over central portions of the state through Tuesday with Kauai and the Big Island residing on the periphery. Expect periods of increased clouds and showers are expected over windward and mauka sections of Oahu and Maui County during the next 48 hours or so, particularly overnight and lingering into the morning hours.

Surf is very quiet; NWS says no significant swells are expected for ALL shorelines in this next week. Waves will be pretty calm except for the east shorelines which will have the biggest surf; rough and choppy thru the middle of the week because of the trade winds. Small Craft Advisories are in effect for all Hawaiian Waters due to the strong and gusty trade winds.
