HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The breezy winds will ease starting Wednesday.

Winds will veer out of the east-southeast Thursday and Friday, which will allow land and sea breezes to affect island weather.

Other than a few windward showers, the land breezes will lead to mostly clear skies during nights and mornings, while afternoon sea breezes will lead to clouds and a few showers over leeward and interior areas.

Light to moderate trade winds are expected this weekend, with limited rainfall expected.
