High pressure north of the islands will keep trade winds breezy through tonight.

The trades will ease Thursday and Thursday night as a front passes by to the north of the state, with windy trades returning over the weekend.

Clouds and showers will favor windward and mauka areas, with a few showers spilling over into leeward areas from time to time due to the strength of the trades.

High today in Honolulu will be 84 degrees.

Surf has moderated a bit on all shores. Next large northwest swell is expected late Friday and will likely trigger an advisory.

Rough and choppy waves along east shores are near advisory levels today. Even stronger trade winds this weekend will create larger, dangerous waves.

Always check with lifeguards before getting in the ocean.

Waves today will be 8-11 feet north, 5-8 feet west, 4-7 feet east, 1-3 feet south.

Small craft advisory for most Hawaii waters.
