Stable, dry weather ahead of frontal system today to bring showers across the country

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) — Light winds and mostly dry weather will continue Tuesday, with afternoon sea breezes bringing some clouds and some showers to inland and uphill areas.

A cold front is expected to move across the western islands on Wednesday, bringing with it a period of strong northeast winds and an increase in showers on Kauai and Oahu. The front will stall and weaken into a trough, slowly shifting west Thursday through Friday with showers favoring the western end of the state.

Moderate to locally breezy trade winds will return over the weekend, with rather dry conditions on Saturday transitioning to rainy trade wind weather from Sunday through early next week.

A high surf warning remains in effect for the north-facing coasts from Niihau to Maui, including the west-facing coasts of Niihau and Kauai, and may expire at 6 a.m. this morning.

Distant buoys have dropped a few feet in the last few hours which should see the surf drop below recommended levels today.

A larger but shorter north swell is expected to arrive tomorrow and bring weak advisory surf to north facing shores tomorrow night and Thursday before subsiding Thursday night through Saturday.

It will also likely bring SCA-level seas into exposed waters. Slightly larger, longer South Swell Surf is expected tomorrow through Saturday.
