Lingering cold front to dampen start of new week

News

A stationary cold front north of the islands has created wet weather for Kaua’i and parts of O’ahu today, but the rest of the state was relatively dry.

However, as a high pressure system moves pass north of the islands, the cold front will then be pushed down over the entire state, creating more wet conditions on Monday.

The high pressure system has been producing moderate to locally breezy trade winds, and we can expect the next couple days to follow in similar fashion.

But by Tuesday, the winds will begin to ease off which will then lead to Wednesday having light and variable winds across the islands.

This is because the high pressure system will be weakening, while the next cold front makes its approach to the islands.

Models are not in agreement just yet, but the second half of the new week looks to be wet because of the cold front and its associated moisture.

The High Surf Advisory has been canceled earlier this afternoon as the current N/NW swell begins to diminish.

A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect until Sunday for the entire state.

The Hawaiian Moon Phase for tonight is known as LāʻauLua.

This is a good night to go fishing, and for you farmers, a good night to plant mai’a (banana), ulu (breadfruit) and other trees.
