Trade winds 10-20 mph today with very few passing showers. Mostly sunny skies with an afternoon high of 88 degrees.

A strong high pressure ridge north of the islands will continue to produce breezy trade winds through the first half of next week.

A more stable trade wind pattern with only a few windward and mauka showers will persist through Thursday.

On Friday, unstable air moves in from the east producing numerous showers over windward areas with periods of scattered showers drifting over leeward sections through the weekend.

Periods of wet weather will continue into the first half of next week as a low level trough moves through the region.

Surf is slightly elevated along south shores. The trade wind swell on east shores will build with the stronger winds starting Friday.

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

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