HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A wet and breezy trade wind pattern will prevail today and part of Wednesday. We will then start a drying trend that will last into the weekend.

The passing showers are dampening most Oahu neighborhoods and roadways on both sides of the Koolau. There will be intermittent patches of blue sky and sunshine between the showers.

High today in Honolulu will be 87 degrees.

Surf is slightly elevated along south and east shores today with new swells coming. Energy from a storm far south of the equator will reach south shores Thursday and approach advisory levels by Friday. Hurricane Blas in the East Pacific is sending advisory-sized waves to our east shores and they should arrive sometime this weekend.

National Weather Service surf forecast for today: 4-6 feet east, 2-4 feet south, 1-3 feet north and west.

Small Craft Advisory for Pailolo and Alenuihaha channels and coastal waters south and west of the Big Island.
