Light west to southwest winds will continue over the state through Wednesday. That will allow local afternoon sea breezes and nighttime land breezes.

Expect clouds and some showers to develop over interior sections in the afternoon today and Wednesday. Clearing skies at night.

High today in Honolulu will be muggy 80 degrees with higher humidity.

A weak surface ridge will bring a brief period of east to southeast winds on Thursday, before southerly winds develop ahead of a cold front moving toward the islands from the northwest on Friday. This front is expected to reach Kauai by Saturday, then stall just west of Oahu later in the weekend.

Widespread rainfall will likely accompany this front across the western islands from Friday night into early next week.

Surf is just big enough to trigger an advisory for east shores. Check with lifeguards before approaching the water. Stay well back of crashing surf along rocky coastlines.

Next northwest large enough to trigger an advisory is forecast to arrive late Friday.

Waves today will be 6-8 feet east, 3-5 feet north, 2-3 feet south, 1-3 feet west.

High surf advisory for east-facing shores.

High wind warning for summits on the island of Hawaii. West winds 50-70 mph with gusts greater than 85 mph.
