Trade wind weather is forecast to return Thursday. Clouds and passing showers will favor windward and mauka areas as the trade winds take over. Lighter winds are expected early next week as another front approaches. A very large northwest swell will build overnight and linger into Friday resulting in hazardous conditions along exposed shorelines.

Today we expect mostly sunny skies with scattered morning showers for windward and mauka areas. Leeward spots will get just isolated showers. East winds are expected from 15 to 20 mph. High temperatures from 78° to 83°.
