Showers forecast to increase for the islands later this week

News

A high pressure system north of the islands will maintain moderate to locally breezy trade winds with a few brief showers over mainly windward and coastal areas through Tuesday.

Heading into midweek, winds will weaken as the ridge is disrupted, which will allow for afternoon clouds and showers over the interior of the islands.

Trades are expected to return for the second half of the week, with increasing trade wind showers.

Periods of high clouds are expected beginning Tuesday, which could become thicker later in the week.

Surf along north facing shores will be 6 to 10 feet tonight, rising to 12 to 16 feet Tuesday afternoon.

Surf along west facing shores will be 4 to 6 feet tonight, rising to 8 to 12 feet Tuesday afternoon.

Surf along south facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet through Tuesday.

Surf along east facing shores will be 3 to 5 feet through Tuesday.
