Forecast: Breezy trade winds make for a pleasant weekend

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - High pressure north of the state will keep a breezy east to northeast trade wind flow in place through the weekend, with clouds and showers focused primarily across windward and mauka areas.

A cold front will approach from the northwest on Monday, and linger in the vicinity of the islands through much of next week. This will result in a period of unsettled weather across the state, and possibly some beneficial rainfall in drought-stricken areas.

A High Surf Advisory remains in effect for north-facing shores and a Marine Weather Statement for north-facing harbors because of the large swell. The current north swell will continue through the weekend, and a new northwest swell is expected to arrive on Saturday. As a result, the high surf advisory will likely need to be extended through the weekend for north-facing shores of most islands.
