Looking Ahead

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.
