Forecast: Surf starting to build along north, west shores

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A clear and cool start to our Thursday. Early morning temperatures are in the low to mid 60s across the state.

Vog continues to hang in our skies. Hazy sunshine will warm us to the low 80s and create some interior clouds and perhaps a few showers over interior/leeward neighborhoods this afternoon.

High in Honolulu will be 81 degrees. An approaching cold front will turn winds WSW late afternoon and bring us a few showers overnight and Friday. A short-lived puff of trade winds Friday should push the volcanic haze to the south, at least temporarily.

Surf is building today. The National Weather Service says by afternoon waves will be 10 to 15 feet for north shores and 8 to 12 feet for west shores. Overnight the swell will continue to grow in size and by Friday morning, waves will be 35 to 42 feet for north shores and 18 to 25 feet for west shores. East and south shores will be in the 1-3 foot range.

High Surf Advisory posted for north and west shores today. It will likely be upgraded to a High Surf Warning tonight or tomorrow morning.
