Breezy, cloudy and wet. With dangerous surf.

A plume of tropical moisture trailing along behind Hurricane Hector will make for cloudy and wet trade winds today.

Fairly wet overnight, the showers will likely increase by afternoon and could at times be heavy.

The winds will be trades at 15-25 mph.

High in Honolulu will be 88 degrees.

A drier airmass will overspread the state from southeast to northwest on Friday, with a more typical trade wind pattern featuring mainly windward and mauka showers returning by Friday night and continue through the middle of next week.

A Hector-generated, short-period swell will pump up south shores today to 8 to 12 feet, high enough for a High Surf Advisory until 6 a.m. Friday. West shores will also see waves from Hector in the 4 to 8 foot range.

A long-period swell from a Southern Hemisphere storm will bring big waves to south shores this upcoming weekend.

Hurricane warning for all waters 40-240 NM offshore.

All Hawaii coastal and channel waters are under a small craft advisory.
