Trade winds will gradually ease today through Friday. Showers will remain focused mainly across windward neighborhoods, especially on the Big Island thanks to lingering remnants of a front.

High today in Honolulu will be about 84 degrees. Winds will veer to the southeast and weaken further this weekend. Sea breezes will likely develop in the afternoons. Add to that an upper level disturbance passing over the state and we could have some locally heavy downpours Saturday and/or Sunday.

Surf along all shores will remain below advisory levels through the next several days. A small long-period northwest swell is expected to arrive Friday, then slowly decline over the weekend.

South shores will continue to see small long-period swells, with a small bump expected to arrive late Monday. Short-period trade wind swell will cause surf to build across east-facing shores early next week as the trade winds increase.

No marine or weather advisories are posted.
