HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Typical trade winds are the story this weekend. Dry air is surrounding the entire state, with deep tropical moisture just out of reach south of the island chain. The next change up in the weather pattern should come on Tuesday, as a weak disturbance passes south of Hawaii. The National Hurricane Center has tagged this disturbance as a medium chance to develop into a tropical cyclone over the next 48 hours and a high chance to develop over the next seven days. We will see almost no moisture from this system. The only change Hawaii will see from the disturbance is increased trade winds, ranging between 15-25 mph.

A great tool to have is our First Alert Weather App and interactive radar.

Surf along south and east facing shores is trending down this weekend. A distant fetch of northwest winds may send a small north-northwest swell toward the islands early next week. Surf may trend up slightly beyond the typical summertime flat conditions along exposed north facing shores starting next Monday. We’re tracking the tropical cyclone activity in the eastern pacific, so check back here to see if we’ll see any future hurricane swells as new storms form.
