We are trying to squeeze in one more "comfortable" trade wind day before we get into a period of hazy, sticky weather.

This morning's light winds will pick up a bit after lunch and peak at 15-20 mph. The trades are bringing passing light showers that will occasionally be of moderate intensity. Plentiful sunshine is expected starting mid-morning, especially along leeward beaches.

High in Honolulu today will be 87 degrees.

We will trend toward much lighter winds starting tomorrow, with moisture from former hurricane Orlene cranking up the humidity and the discomfort level through much of the weekend.

Surf is dropping out in the country and getting a small boost in town. Here's today's surf forecast: South, East, West 2-4 feet, North 2-3 feet.

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