One more day of occasionally breezy trade winds with plentiful sunshine and a high of 83 degrees in Honolulu.

Just a few windward and mauka showers.

Breezy trades will continue to focus clouds and showers over windward areas through the day today, especially over the eastern end of the state.

Trades are forecast to weaken Thursday through Friday, which should give way to light and variable winds over the smaller islands and allow some vog from the Big Island to begin pooling northward by Friday.

The light winds may allow afternoon showers to develop over leeward areas. A gradual drying trend is anticipated over the weekend and into early next week with a return of a more typical trade wind pattern.

Surf is dropping all around. Waves today will be 8-12 feet north, 5-8 feet west, 3-5 feet east, 1-3 feet south.

Small craft advisory for the Pailolo and Alenuihaha channels, Maalaea Bay, along with coastal waters south and west of the Island of Hawaii.

Box jellyfish are likely along south shores. Check with lifeguards before you let the kids approach the shoreline.
