Forecast: Sunshine, light winds before days of wetter weather

Enjoy today and prepare for wet weather.

Light winds and plentiful sunshine today. Afternoon sea breezes are possible with a few interior clouds and showers.

Volcanic haze will be an issue the next couple of days.

A warm afternoon high of 84 is expected in Honolulu today.

We have a fairly stable and dry atmosphere through much of Tuesday and then things will begin to change. An approaching cold front will turn winds southerly and we will experience very wet weather through the weekend.

Thunderstorms are likely starting Tuesday night for Kauai, then Wednesday for Oahu and the rest of the island chain.

Surf sizes will be moderate today, a bit bigger out in country Tuesday, then dangerously large Thursday through the weekend.

Back-to-back northwest swells starting Thursday will likely approach warning levels.

Today's waves will be 4-8 feet north, 5-7 feet east, 2-4 feet west, 2 feet or less south. No weather or marine advisories are posted.
