Breezy trade winds, a few windward showers for the weekend

Locally breezy trade winds will continue through the weekend, with passing showers for windward and mauka areas. It should be a little drier as Friday’s clouds and showers have moved west of the state. Trade winds will diminish with the new work week as an upper trough moves in from the northwest.

We have some surf for the weekend, with waves hovering just below the high surf advisory level for the north and west shores of most of the smaller islands. The swell is expected to peak Saturday and then gradually decline through Monday. South shores are also elevated but the swell is diminishing slowly. East shores will rise through Sunday with the stronger trades.
