Forecast: Light winds, with huge surf on the horizon

First Alert Forecast for Friday

No major changes in our light wind weather pattern are expected for the next several days, with daytime sea breezes and nighttime land breezes. The atmosphere is very stable and rainfall will continue to be sparse. If anything, there could be some light morning showers for windward areas, and perhaps some afternoon clouds and isolated light showers for leeward and interior areas. The weather pattern will finally be broken by a cold front that will bring scattered showers and Kona winds, but that won’t be until next week Wednesday night into Thursday.

At the beach, the north-northeast swell is continuing its gradual decline, but a high surf advisory will continue overnight for the east shores of Oahu, Molokai, Maui and the Big Island. A huge northwest swell is expected to arrive late Friday night and bring warning-level waves this weekend. Waves could remain quite high into Monday and Tuesday.
