Alerts

A Marine Weather Alert is posted for all coastal waters. A long-period south swell will bring potential for surges in harbors facing the south and may lead to waves breaking in and near harbor entrances (especially Sunday and Monday). Extreme tide changes could lead to locally strong currents even in channel entrances. Boaters should be alert to larger than normal surf along south shores this weekend.

Looking Ahead 

A light to moderate trade wind regime is expected through the weekend. The only exception will be around the Big Island where light and variable winds will continue through the next couple of days. The trade winds will continue to bring clouds and showers over windward and mountain areas. Sea breezes will also bring afternoon and early evening periods of clouds and showers over leeward areas, with generally clear skies during the nights and mornings.
