NWS forecast: Weak high pressure to the north of the islands will bring light winds over the next few days, with daytime sea breezes and nighttime land breezes affecting more areas.

Moisture from an old frontal boundary near the Big Island will slowly move northward this weekend just as a weak upper level disturbance passes by. The combination of this moisture and the disturbance aloft will bring a chance for mainly afternoon and evening showers over the weekend. Some of those showers could be heavy.

Trades are expected to return early next week.

High today in Honolulu will be a warm and sticky 84 degrees.

A small, long-period northwest swell is expected to arrive later today, peak tonight, then slowly decline over the weekend. South shores will continue to see small long period swells through Monday, with a small boost expected Monday night and continuing through midweek. Short-period trade wind swell will affect east facing shores early next week as the trade winds increase.

No weather or marine advisories are posted.
