Happy Aloha Friday and Happy Autumn! Lots happening this weekend to celebrate the new season! Temps are NOT falling but we are seeing one sign of Autumn with building swells in the country.

Trade winds are here for quite some time! A high pressure system far northwest of the Hawaiian Islands will continue to keep moderate to locally breezy trade winds in the forecast through the week. Passing windward and mountain showers will develop during the overnight to early morning hours in this pattern. SLOWER trades are due in this weekend and even slower next week.

More isolated showers are possible over leeward areas. A slight increase in these shower trends may develop from tonight into the weekend.

Small Craft Advisory up for now. Surf along north facing shores will remain small through much of this week but a country swell due in this weekend. Moderate, rough surf along east facing shores may drop slightly, then increase around mid-week due to strengthening of the trade winds.

Wishing you blue skies and much aloha
