Wind warning issued, gustier winds expected for Thanksgiving

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Increasing high pressure in the north will generate breezy to strong trade winds through Tuesday.

Short-term showers are mainly expected over windward and mountainous areas.

The current wind warning was extended in good time until Monday 6 p.m. The wind advisory has also expanded in coverage to include new areas in Maui County and parts of Oahu.

A cold front will sweep west-east down the island chain from Wednesday night into Thanksgiving, bringing a spell of showers to all islands, followed by another bout of strong and gusty northeast winds that will ease by next weekend.

These strong northeast winds are likely to exceed our wind recommendation thresholds and cause problems.

A sustained northwesterly swell is currently building up across the islands and will peak today just below recommended levels.

The peak of that swell could reach warning levels and coincide with the spring tide in the early hours Thursday.

Surfing along the east-facing shores will see a steady surge over the next few days as trades strengthen.
