HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Good morning! Your Aloha Friday will have few showers, plentiful sunshine, and breezy trade winds.

Trades will peak this afternoon at 15-25 mph with gusts to 35 mph. The high in Honolulu today will be about 89 degrees.

Saturday is also looking nice, but moisture from post-tropical Howard combined with a developing upper level disturbance are expected to dampen the second half of our weekend. Showers could start as early as Saturday night and on Sunday be heavy at times with a slight chance of thundershowers.

Surf is elevated along east shores due to the trade winds. Energy from Howard will boost those waves even more starting Saturday. Advisory-sized waves of 8 feet or greater are likely Saturday night through Sunday. NWS surf forecast for today: 3-6 feet east, 2-4 feet south, 2-3 feet west, 1-3 feet north.

Small Craft Advisory until Saturday evening for Pailolo and Alenuihaha channels, and Maalaea Bay.
