Surf has fallen below warning levels on north and west shores, but a High Surf Advisory remains in effect until 6 a.m. Sunday. North shores could still see waves of 15 to 20 feet, with 10 to 15 footers for west shores. A Small Craft Advisory also remains posted for all Hawaiian waters due to the swell.
Pleasant trade wind weather is expected for the weekend. There are a few passing low clouds and showers riding for windward and mauka areas, but rainfall totals should be on the light side. The trades may pick up a notch before easing back early next week.
