Forecast: Warm temps for summer solstice

They're not here yet, but hopefully the trade winds will be breezy by this afternoon when Honolulu approaches 90 degrees. Yesterday's maximum temperature was 92.

Very few showers are expected.

Trade winds will continue to strengthen through tonight as high pressure builds northwest of the state, becoming breezy on Friday, and lasting through part of the weekend. The frequency of the trade showers will also be on the rise. These showers will be favoring the windward and mountain areas, although the breezy trades will blow some of these showers into the lee areas of the smaller islands from time to time.

Surf is quite small all around today. As the trade winds strengthen, the waves will get bigger along east shores. Overlapping, long-period south swells are expected next week starting on Tuesday. Waves today will be 1-3 feet east, 1-2 feet south, 2 feet or less north and west.

Small craft advisory posted for the Pailolo and Alenuihaha channels, Maalaea Bay, along with coastal waters south and west of the Big Island.
