Winds will remain breezy tomorrow before weakening Monday

News

Breezy to locally windy trade winds prevail across the state.

This has triggered a couple of advisories across the state, including a High Surf Advisory and a Small Craft Advisory.

A high pressure system far northeast of the state continues to produce strong trade winds into Sunday.

However, starting Monday, the trade winds will weaken a bit to a moderate level, and that is what we can expect for most of the new work week.

By Friday or so, winds will begin to weaken even more to light conditions due to a cold front that is expected to pass far north of the islands.

We dont expect to see much mositure associated with this front, but the biggest impact will be the change in the winds.

In terms of rainfall, most of the showers will favor the windward and mauka areas, while leeward areas will see passing showers from time to time.  

This is due to the strong winds pushing some rain from windward areas over the mountains to the leeward areas. 

The Hawaiian Moon Phase for tonight is known as “Ku Kolu.”  

This is a good night to go fishing, and for you farmers, a good night to plant ‘uala (sweet potato), kalo (taro), and mai’a (banana).
