The moderate trades will gradually weaken and allow for sea breezes to take hold over the weekend. Expect a few afternoon showers over leeward and interior areas during that time. An approaching cold front may bring an increase in showers Sunday night and Monday. A very large northwest swell will gradually lower Friday and Saturday.
Today we expect mostly sunny skies with clouds building in the afternoon. Isolated showers could also occur in the afternoon. East winds are forecast from 10 to 15 mph. High temperatures from 79° to 84°.
