HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The fan on Mother Nature's air conditioner, which we know as tradewinds, is being set to "off" or "low" for the next several days.

Those winds are forecast to remain very light through the beginning of next week, ushering in warm temperatures and the chance for afternoon clouds and showers, with the highest chance of showers on the Big Island of Hawaii Saturday.

Clouds are expected to dissipate overnight with nighttime land breezes.

Daytime temperatures will be sizzling, with 90 degrees forecast for Honolulu Saturday, 91 Sunday. Kahului's forecast high for Saturday is 92, with 93 expected Sunday.

A weak cold front that was 175 miles north of the state Saturday will suppress the tradewinds. The trades are not expected to return until the middle of next week, and even they will be on the lighter side.

Meanwhile, a High Surf Advisory is up through 6 a.m. Monday for the south facing shores of all islands, with wave face heights of 5 to 8 feet possible.
