Forecast: Light winds to persist through weekend

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The heat-induced downpours are swamping a few neighborhoods on Kauai, Oahu and Lanai.

The rain is expected to dissipate as temperatures cool, although a few showers will linger into the morning.

The winds will become even lighter through the weekend which opens the gates for humid weather and hazy skies.

Light winds will allow emissions from Kilauea to spread over the smaller islands. Daytime sea breezes will produce clouds and showers over interior and leeward areas while nighttime land breezes will bring partial clearing at night.

Tradewinds will return on Memorial Day, as an area of high pressure strengthens over the state, but the trades may remain lighter than normal through next week.

SURF OUTLOOK: A moderate southwest swell from the Tasman sea is expected to peak late Friday, then decline during the weekend.
