Forecast: Developing cold front will bring clouds and showers

Don't expect a lot of sunshine today. It will be cloudy with occasional showers, some could be heavy.

Winds will be light and variable with southerly flow bringing volcanic haze up the island chain.

High in Honolulu will be 79 degrees, but feel warmer.

A developing front will move down the island chain today through Saturday, then stall near the Big Island Saturday night into next week.

The front will bring clouds and showers along and ahead of it as it goes. Some of these showers may be heavy at times. While a cool and mostly dry air mass will prevail over the smaller islands after the front passes, the stalled front will keep wet weather over the Big Island for several days.

Surf is elevated with a north-northwest swell peaking today. A larger northwest swell Sunday and Monday may bring wave heights to advisory levels.

A series of south swells are expected through the weekend with the biggest surf on Sunday.

Today's waves will be 7-9 feet north, 4-6 feet west, 2-4 feet south, 1-3 feet east.

No marine or weather advisories are posted.
