Forecast: Box jellyfish possible along south shores

A strong ridge of high pressure just north of the islands will maintain locally breezy trade winds through tonight.

The trades will ease a bit tomorrow and Saturday as a front approaches from the northwest and weakens the ridge. The trade winds will strengthen again Sunday as a new high moves north of the islands.

Showers will fall mainly nights and mornings and mainly over windward neighborhoods. Afternoon showers may form over the leeward slopes of the Big Island. High today in Honolulu will be 85 degrees.

Box jellyfish are possible along south shores today. Check with lifeguards before you or the kids jump in the ocean. Waves are small all around. Small northwest swells will roll in over the next few days. A summer-like south swell is forecast for Monday and Tuesday.

Small Craft Advisory until 6 a.m. Friday for Maalaea Bay, Pailolo channel, Alenuihaha channel, Big Island leeward waters, Big Island southeast waters.
