Return of tradewinds brings some relief from summer heat

    This composite satellite image shows a stalled weather system northwest and north of the islands. Some clouds from the system are being blown over the state by thetradewinds.

Returning tradewinds should provide some relief from the hot, humid weather experienced over the weekend.

Breezy, cooling tradewinds of 10 to 20 mph, with higher gusts are expected Monday, a change from the light winds experienced over the weekend. 

The tradewinds will provide some cooling from the summer heat, forecasters said. But winds may die down Wednesday or Thursday.

“It will feel a little cooler and that will continue until the middle of the week,” said Robert Ballard, a meterologist with the National Weather Service Honolulu office. “It will feel more muggy later in the week.

The forecast for south shores of Oahu, including Honolulu, calls for mostly sunny skies with isolated showers with highs between 80 to 87 degrees and lows of 66 to 73 degrees.

For those seeking relief from the early summer heat in the ocean, small surf is expected around the islands. South shores may see a little bump with a swell bringing 2- to 4-foot wave faces through Tuesday.
