Forecast: Haze, humidity and heavy showers expected

Southerly winds continue to bring hazy and humid air to the aloha state. For the west end of the island chain, those winds are also bringing showers, heavy showers, and thunderstorms.

Like yesterday, there may be periods of hazy sunshine. But it could turn wet very quickly.

High in Honolulu will be a sticky 80 degrees.

Saturday may give us a brief respite from the wet weather. A cold front will roll through starting Sunday and bring with it heavy showers and thunderstorms. It may be Wednesday before the wet weather clears the state.

Waves are smaller today with a new and very large swell expected tonight. Saturday surf will be big enough to threaten life and property along north and west shores.

Today's surf forecast calls for 10-15 feet north, 8-12 feet west, 2-4 feet east and south.

Flash Flood Watch for Niihau, Kauai, and Oahu through this afternoon.

High Surf Advisory north and west shores of Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, and Molokai... north shores only for Maui.

Small Craft Advisory for all Hawaii waters.

High Wind Warning for summits on the Island of Hawaii. Winds at higher elevations will be 45-55 mph with gusts to 65 mph.
