Drier weekend trades, but wetter weather on the horizon
Trade winds will be locally breezy through Saturday and ease just a bit for Sunday, with drier and more stable air moving in from the east. By Saturday afternoon, expect just some light passing windward showers.
A First Alert for the beginning of the work week, as forecast models show a large Kona low developing to the northwest and approaching Monday and Tuesday. This will bring deep moisture from the south, increasing the chance of showers and more humidity.
Right now, we don’t know if there will be heavy showers associated with this Kona low, but we’ll keep a close eye on it for you. For now, expect the frontal band to weaken after Tuesday, with breezy and drier trade winds for the latter half of the week.
In surf, the high surf advisory for north and west shores has been canceled as the large west-northwest swell has declined, but a new medium-period northwest swell will build through the day and peak very close to advisory levels late Saturday.
Another advisory level swell for north and west shores is possible early next week.
