High surf advisory extended through Saturday

Weather Blog

A Wind Advisory was posted this morning starting at 6:00am, but that was canceled earlier this evening.  

But the trade winds are still breezy outside and will continue in that fashion into Saturday.

Starting Saturday night, the trades will begin to weaken and shift from an easterly direction to a south-easterly direction.  

One factor to that is a high pressure system moving farther away from the state, while another factor is an approaching cold front from the northwest.

This cold front will allow light and variable winds to prevail across the state from Sunday into the new work week.

It looks like most of next week will be mostly light and variable winds with a possible short return of trade winds as another high pressure system makes it way north of the islands.

In terms of rainfall, we see light scattered showers mainly for the windward and mauka areas, while the leeward sides hold to mostly dry conditions.

That may slightly change as light and variable winds develop across the islands.

Afternoon sea breezes could spark showers during the day for inland and leeward areas, while less showers look to fall on the windward sides.

A High Surf Advisory and Small Craft Advisory continue to be in effect until Saturday at 6:00pm.
