HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – The high pressure north of the Hawaiian Islands is going to bring us typical trade winds, with most of the state seeing sunny to partly cloudy skies with windy showers and mauka showers sometimes drifting under the wind throughout the day from today until next week.
Weekend Forecast: There may be a slight risk of thunderstorms on the island of Hawaii with the afternoon warming; Oahu and Kauai might also see showers with a trough nearby; unstable weather could be over the ocean bringing some showers to the north shore and windward sides. The extended forecast predominantly predicts trade wind weather conditions for most places with windy trade winds.
A small northerly swell will persist today, then will be reinforced by a slightly stronger northerly swell overnight through Saturday. These mostly northerly swells will keep the north low end, with a westerly wrap, surf the next two days. A small mid-period west-northwest swell generated by Typhoon Mindulle will likely reach the western islands on Tuesday. The small, medium to long period overlapping southwest swells that kept the south surf from becoming completely flat will begin to subside today.
