Surf can reach from 10 to 14 feet high on all south-facing shores of the islands. The advisory will remain in effect until 6 p.m. on May 5.
High pressure sliding by to the north and northeast of the state will keep moderate to breezy trade winds in place through the middle of next week, with only minor fluctuations in strength.
A mid and upper-level low west of the state will bring considerable high cloud cover to the islands today and Friday, with the high clouds thinning out Saturday and vacating the area entirely on Sunday.
