HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Almost all of the overnight showers have dissipated or moved off to the north of the islands.

We are trending drier with a more stable atmosphere moving over our state. Winds continue to be light and variable with daytime sea breezes and nighttime land breezes.

Volcanic haze is a problem. You can thank the vog for your scratchy throat and runny nose.

No trade winds in the forecast until next week.

High in Honolulu will be 81 degrees.

Surf is smaller in the country but still dangerously big. The National Weather Service says expect surf of 15 to 20 feet for north shore, 9 to 12 feet for west shores, 2 to 4 feet for south shores and 1 to 3 feet for east shores.

A High Surf Advisory is in effect until 6 p.m. today for north and west shores of Kauai, Niihau, Oahu and Molokai as well as north shores of Maui.

The next large swell is due Thursday night, peaking Friday with wave sizes expected to trigger a High Surf Warning.
