The rough and tumble weather of the last few days has finally moved off to the east.

North winds are filling in and bringing us cooler, drier, much-more-comfortable conditions. There will be a few passing showers with considerable sunshine.

Overnight lows in the 60s will warm to the upper 70s.

Honolulu will see a max of 78 degrees.

The north winds will turn more northeasterly tomorrow and become trades. The nice weather should last through the weekend. Very wet weather is expected to return the first of next week.

Surf is going to get big out in the country tonight. An advisory-sized swell is expected to peak Friday. An even larger swell could approach warning levels Monday and Tuesday.

Waves today will be 3-5 feet north, 2-4 feet west, 1-3 feet east, 2 feet or less south.

High Wind Warning for the summits on the Island of Hawaii. North winds will be 30-50 mph with gusts to 75 mph. No other weather or marine advisories are posted.
