HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Drier conditions will hold through the next few days.

Tradewinds will hold at steady speeds of 10-20 mph, slowing further over the weekend.

Hurricane Blas is far to our east with sustained winds of 120 mph. Blas is expected to spin out and fizzle well to our east. It has sent us some wave energy that is expected to pump up east shores to advisory levels this weekend. Later today a south swell will start rolling in and reach advisory size tomorrow.

The National Weather Service surf report for today is: 5-8 feet south, 4-7 west, 2-4 feet east, 2 feet or less north.

A High Surf Advisory is in effect for south shores starting Friday morning through the weekend.

Meanwhile, a Small Craft Advisory is in effect for Pailolo and Alenuihaha channels, and coastal waters south and west of the Big Island.
