The trade winds have been strong enough to hold off sea breezes and could do so again today. We will call them ENE at 10-15 mph. Showers are moving in with the trades and so far dampening the Big Island and Maui County. Expect another warm day. High in Honolulu should be around 90 degrees.
A high will remain far northeast of the area through early next week. Tropical moisture will move west across the area though the weekend. Drier air will move over the islands on Monday. A high far northwest of the area will move east to a position north of the islands by the middle of next week.
Tropical Storm Lane will likely strengthen to a hurricane and move into the central Pacific over the weekend. It is too soon to know if Lane will directly affect the Hawaiian Islands. The 5:00am forecast puts Lane less than 400 miles SE of South Point early Tuesday morning. The National Hurricane Center in Miami says Lane will be a Category 2 storm at that point with sustained winds of 110 mph. The forecast track and intensity could change.
Surf is small all around. A small boost is possible along south shores tomorrow. Waves today will be 1-3 feet along south, east, and north shores, 2 feet or less west.
No marine or weather advisories are posted.
