HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - It will be getting WINDY! The next couple of days moderate trade winds and then downright gusty later. Locally breezy trades will become strong by the end of the week, with windy conditions anticipated over the weekend. Clouds and showers will tend to focus over windward and mauka areas, but will occasionally blow leeward, especially with the stronger trades.

A small, long period west northwest swell will peak Tuesday through early Wednesday. A series of small south swells can be expected through Thursday. A larger long period south swell is expected to fill in by Friday and peak Saturday. Easterly trade winds will continue to produce short period choppy surf along east facing shores through Wednesday.
