An unstable atmosphere will hang over us through the weekend with a series of disturbances moving through the islands west to east bringing periods of unsettled weather and the potential for locally heavy rainfall.

Expect cloudy skies, occasional showers, and a high of 81 in Honolulu today. Winds will generally be out of the south peaking at 10-20 mph.

High pressure will build north of the state early next week bringing a return of moderate to breezy trade winds and a more windward and mauka focused rainfall pattern.

The winter surf season isn't over yet. There are three swells expected along country shores over then next week, each bigger than the previous. An advisory sized NW swell is expected on Monday.

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

Wind advisory for the Big Island summits. Winds will be 40-55 mph with gusts up to 65 mph.
