HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
Breezy tradewinds will persist through Friday, back down Saturday, then pick up again Sunday.
Rainfall will be limited to a few light windward showers through Friday.
Sometime Saturday, another soggy front will drop in with scattered showers lingering through Sunday. Most of the rain will favor windward sides, occasionally drifting over leeward spots.
Surf continues to be large and rough along east facing shores. That tradewind swell will diminish Friday and Saturday with a new northwest arriving tonight and building to advisory level on Friday. The National Weather Service says on Friday, waves will be 15 to 20 feet on north-facing shores, 10-15 feet on west-facing shores.
A High Surf Advisory is in effect for east-facing shores of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui and the Big Island.
A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for all channel and coastal waters.
