A line of showers is moving across our state this morning, pushed by breezy trade winds. Roads will be wet for the AM commute so drive with extra caution. Skies should clear by afternoon, certainly over leeward neighborhoods.

The high in Honolulu today will be 86 degrees.

High pressure far north of Hawaii will maintain the moderate to breezy trades through tomorrow. Wetter weather is expected late in the weekend into early next week as upper level instability moves near the islands from the east.

A series of southerly swells will bring elevated surf along the south facing shores starting later today through the weekend. South-side surf could reach advisory levels as early as Friday with the swell peaking late Saturday and Sunday. The NWS says waves today will be 4-6 feet south, 3-5 feet east, 2-4 feet west, and 0-2 feet north.

Small Craft Advisory is posted for channels east of Molokai and coastal waters south and west of the Big Island.
