Looking Ahead

Mostly dry and hazy weather is expected for the next few days. Trade winds are forecast to gradually return early next week. A powerful storm in the North Pacific created a swell that will produce very large surf along most north and west facing shores of the Hawaiian Islands starting early Friday morning, and continuing into this weekend.
