Forecast: Lighter winds, higher humidity and vog on the way

Light easterly winds are creating the general flow across the state. Those easterlies will be overruled locally by land and sea breezes.

A few showers will push onto windward coastal communities this morning.

Skies will be partly to mostly sunny. The convective heating will create afternoon sea breezes, clouds, and some pop-up showers over interior and leeward neighborhoods.

High this afternoon will be a sticky 87 degrees.

A surface ridge lingering north of the islands will support light easterly winds through early next week. The winds will be light enough to bring on a daytime sea breeze and nighttime land breeze regime daily into next week.

Surf is coming up both town and country over the next couple days.

An unusual summer swell out of the northwest will take north shores to 12 feet tomorrow. A pair of south swells will take town shores close to advisory levels by late Friday and Saturday.

Today's waves will be 3-5 feet north, 2-4 feet south and west, 1-3 feet east.

No marine or weather advisories are posted.

A special weather statement is posted for trace ashfall in the Big Island's Kau District.
