Dan Cooke's forecast: Trade winds leave, but cold front approaches

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The trade winds are taking a holiday and won't be back until next week. An approaching cold front is the culprit and yet another cold front is right behind that one. We don't expect a whole lot of rain from those fronts, but Saturday may be a bit wetter.

Just a few showers on Oahu this morning with plentiful sunshine in the forecast. Ground heating will create some sea breezes this afternoon and perhaps create a few clouds and pop-up showers in interior neighborhoods.

Surf is lower and the advisory has been dropped. The National Weather Service forecasts 8 to 12 feet along north shores, 6 to 8 feet along west shores, 2 to 5 feet for east shores, and 1 to 2 feet for south shores. A new advisory-sized swell will roll into the country shorelines Friday through Saturday. A warning-sized northwest swell is due Saturday through Sunday.

There are no weather or marine advisories posted.
